So I am a Christian so I would like to get a Jewish perspective on Deuteronomy 10:9. I have always been curious on why the Levite’s did not get the same inheritance as the rest of the tribes. I understand they they had a role to play as priests and were set apart to carry the ark… but why couldn’t they have both?
This is what’s written in my bible which is causing the question;
“That is why the Levites have no share or inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the Lord is their inheritance, as the Lord your God told them.)” Deuteronomy 10:9 NIV https://www.bible.com/111/deu.10.9.niv
Any thoughts or a more in depth explanation?
