Torah Trek 132 “Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land”

Spiritual leaders are devoted to the spiritual. No energy is expended to the temporal.

Torah 132 Numbers 18

יד כָּל-חֵרֶם בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל, לְךָ יִהְיֶה. 14
Every thing devoted in Israel shall be thine.

טו כָּל-פֶּטֶר רֶחֶם לְכָל-בָּשָׂר אֲשֶׁר-יַקְרִיבוּ לַיהוָה, בָּאָדָם וּבַבְּהֵמָה–יִהְיֶה-לָּךְ: אַךְ פָּדֹה תִפְדֶּה, אֵת בְּכוֹר הָאָדָם, וְאֵת בְּכוֹר-הַבְּהֵמָה הַטְּמֵאָה, תִּפְדֶּה. 15
Every thing that openeth the womb, of all flesh which they offer unto the LORD, both of man and beast, shall be thine;
howbeit the first-born of man shalt thou surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shalt thou redeem.

טז וּפְדוּיָו, מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ תִּפְדֶּה, בְּעֶרְכְּךָ, כֶּסֶף חֲמֵשֶׁת שְׁקָלִים בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ: עֶשְׂרִים גֵּרָה, הוּא. 16
And their redemption-money–
from a month old shalt thou redeem them–
shall be, according to thy valuation, five shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary–
the same is twenty gerahs.

יז אַךְ בְּכוֹר-שׁוֹר אוֹ-בְכוֹר כֶּשֶׂב אוֹ-בְכוֹר עֵז, לֹא תִפְדֶּה–קֹדֶשׁ הֵם: אֶת-דָּמָם תִּזְרֹק עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְאֶת-חֶלְבָּם תַּקְטִיר–אִשֶּׁה לְרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, לַיהוָה. 17
But the firstling of an ox, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, thou shalt not redeem;
they are holy:
thou shalt dash their blood against the altar, and shalt make their fat smoke for an offering made by fire, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

יח וּבְשָׂרָם, יִהְיֶה-לָּךְ: כַּחֲזֵה הַתְּנוּפָה וּכְשׁוֹק הַיָּמִין, לְךָ יִהְיֶה. 18
And the flesh of them shall be thine, as the wave-breast and as the right thigh, it shall be thine.

יט כֹּל תְּרוּמֹת הַקֳּדָשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר יָרִימוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל לַיהוָה–נָתַתִּי לְךָ וּלְבָנֶיךָ וְלִבְנֹתֶיךָ אִתְּךָ, לְחָק-עוֹלָם: בְּרִית מֶלַח עוֹלָם הִוא לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לְךָ וּלְזַרְעֲךָ אִתָּךְ. 19
All the heave-offerings of the holy things, which the sons of Israel offer unto the LORD, have I given thee, and thy sons and thy daughters with thee, as a due for ever;
it is an everlasting covenant of salt before the LORD unto thee and to thy seed with thee.’

כ וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, בְּאַרְצָם לֹא תִנְחָל, וְחֵלֶק, לֹא-יִהְיֶה לְךָ בְּתוֹכָם: אֲנִי חֶלְקְךָ וְנַחֲלָתְךָ, בְּתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. {ס} 20
And the LORD said unto Aaron:
‘Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any portion among them;
I am thy portion and thine inheritance among the sons of Israel. {S}

כא וְלִבְנֵי לֵוִי, הִנֵּה נָתַתִּי כָּל-מַעֲשֵׂר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל לְנַחֲלָה, חֵלֶף עֲבֹדָתָם אֲשֶׁר-הֵם עֹבְדִים, אֶת-עֲבֹדַת אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 21
And unto the sons of Levi, behold, I have given all the tithe in Israel for an inheritance, in return for their service which they serve, even the service of the tent of meeting.

כב וְלֹא-יִקְרְבוּ עוֹד בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, לָשֵׂאת חֵטְא, לָמוּת. 22
And henceforth the sons of Israel shall not come nigh the tent of meeting, lest they bear sin, and die.

כג וְעָבַד הַלֵּוִי הוּא, אֶת-עֲבֹדַת אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְהֵם, יִשְׂאוּ עֲו‍ֹנָם: חֻקַּת עוֹלָם, לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם, וּבְתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֹא יִנְחֲלוּ נַחֲלָה. 23
But the Levites alone shall do the service of the tent of meeting, and they shall bear their iniquity;
it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations, and among the sons of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

כד כִּי אֶת-מַעְשַׂר בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר יָרִימוּ לַיהוָה תְּרוּמָה, נָתַתִּי לַלְוִיִּם, לְנַחֲלָה; עַל-כֵּן, אָמַרְתִּי לָהֶם, בְּתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֹא יִנְחֲלוּ נַחֲלָה. {פ} 24
For the tithe of the sons of Israel, which they set apart as a gift unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites for an inheritance;
therefore I have said unto them:
Among the sons of Israel they shall have no inheritance.’ {P}

כה וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 25
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

כו וְאֶל-הַלְוִיִּם תְּדַבֵּר, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם, כִּי-תִקְחוּ מֵאֵת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת-הַמַּעֲשֵׂר אֲשֶׁר נָתַתִּי לָכֶם מֵאִתָּם, בְּנַחֲלַתְכֶם–וַהֲרֵמֹתֶם מִמֶּנּוּ תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה, מַעֲשֵׂר מִן-הַמַּעֲשֵׂר. 26
‘Moreover thou shalt speak unto the Levites, and say unto them:
When ye take of the sons of Israel the tithe which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall set apart of it a gift for the LORD, even a tithe of the tithe.

כז וְנֶחְשַׁב לָכֶם, תְּרוּמַתְכֶם–כַּדָּגָן, מִן-הַגֹּרֶן, וְכַמְלֵאָה, מִן-הַיָּקֶב. 27
And the gift which ye set apart shall be reckoned unto you, as though it were the corn of the threshing-floor, and as the fulness of the wine-press.

כח כֵּן תָּרִימוּ גַם-אַתֶּם, תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה, מִכֹּל מַעְשְׂרֹתֵיכֶם, אֲשֶׁר תִּקְחוּ מֵאֵת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וּנְתַתֶּם מִמֶּנּוּ אֶת-תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה, לְאַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן. 28
Thus ye also shall set apart a gift unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel;
and thereof ye shall give the gift which is set apart unto the LORD to Aaron the priest.

כט מִכֹּל, מַתְּנֹתֵיכֶם, תָּרִימוּ, אֵת כָּל-תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה: מִכָּל-חֶלְבּוֹ–אֶת-מִקְדְּשׁוֹ, מִמֶּנּוּ. 29
Out of all that is given you ye shall set apart all of that which is due unto the LORD, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of it.

ל וְאָמַרְתָּ, אֲלֵהֶם: בַּהֲרִימְכֶם אֶת-חֶלְבּוֹ, מִמֶּנּוּ, וְנֶחְשַׁב לַלְוִיִּם, כִּתְבוּאַת גֹּרֶן וְכִתְבוּאַת יָקֶב. 30
Therefore thou shalt say unto them:
When ye set apart the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshing-floor, and as the increase of the wine-press.
