Numbers 18
NMV
18
1And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto Aharon [Bright, Very High], youi and youi sons and youi father’s house with youi shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and youi and youi sons with youi shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.
2And youi brethren also of the tribe of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner], the tribe of youi father, bring youi with youi, that they may be joined unto youi, and minister unto youi: but youi and youi sons with youi [shall minister] before the tabernacle of witness.
3And they shall keep youi charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come near the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor you2f also, die.
4And they shall be joined unto youi, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come near unto you.
5And you2f shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
6And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] from among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: to you [they are] given [as] a gift for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
7Therefore youi and youi sons with youi shall keep your priest’s office for everything of the altar, and within the veil; and you2f shall serve: I have given your priest’s office [unto you] as a service of gift: and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.
8And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Aharon [Bright, Very High], Behold, I also have given youi the charge of my heave offerings of all the consecrated things of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; unto youi have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to youi sons, by an ordinance forever.
9This shall be youi of the most holy things, [reserved] from the fire: every oblation of theirs, every meat offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every trespass offering of theirs, which they shall render unto me, [shall be] most holy for youi and for youi sons.
10In the most holy [place] shall youi eat it; every male shall eat it: it shall be holy unto youi.
11And this [is] youi; the heave offering of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: I have given them unto youi, and to youi sons and to youi daughters with youi, by a statute forever: every one that is clean in youi house shall eat of it.
12All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), them have I given youi.
13 [And] whatsoever is first ripe in the land, which they shall bring unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), shall be youi; every one that is clean in youi house shall eat [of] it.
14Eveeverything devoted in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] shall be youi.
15Eveeverything that opens the womb in all flesh, which they bring unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), [whether it be] of men or beasts, shall be youi: nevertheless the firstborn of man shall youi surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shall youi redeem.
16And those that are to be redeemed from a month old shall youi redeem, according to youi estimation, for the money of five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, which [is] twenty gerahs.
17But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, youi shall not redeem; they [are] holy: youi shall sprinkle their blood upon the altar, and shall burn their fat [for] an offering made by fire, for a soothing aroma unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
18And the flesh of them shall be youi, as the wave breast and as the right shoulder are youi.
19All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] offer unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), have I given youi, and youi sons and youi daughters with youi, by a statute forever: it [is] a covenant of salt forever before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) unto youi and to youi seed with youi.
20And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Aharon [Bright, Very High], youi shall have no inheritance in their land, neither shall youi have any part among them: I [am] youi part and youi inheritance among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
21And, behold, I have given the children of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner] all the tenth in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, [even] the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
22Neither must the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] from this time forth (from now on) come near the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.
23But the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: [it shall be] a statute forever throughout your generations, that among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] they have no inheritance.
24But the tithes of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], which they offer [as] an heave offering unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), I have given to the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] they shall have no inheritance.
25And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], saying,
26Thus speak unto the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to], and say unto them, When you2f take of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then you2f shall offer up an heave offering of it for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), [even] a tenth [part] of the tithe.
27And [this] your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though [it were] the corn of the threshing floor, and as the fullness of the winepress.
28Thus you2f also shall offer an heave offering unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) of all your tithes, which you2f receive of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; and you2f shall give thereof the Lord-Yehōvah’s [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] heave offering to Aharon [Bright, Very High] the priest.
29Out of all your gifts you2f shall offer every heave offering of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), of all the best thereof, [even] the consecrated part thereof out of it.
30Therefore youi shall say unto them, When you2f have heaved the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] as the increase of the threshing floor, and as the increase of the winepress.
31And you2f shall eat it in every place, you2f and your households: for it [is] your reward for your service in the tabernacle of the congregation.
32And you2f shall bear no sin by reason of it, when you2f have heaved from it the best of it: neither shall you2f pollute the holy things of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], lest you2f die.
