When Jacob began to count his 12 sons starting from Benjamin and found Levi the tenth, he brought him to God, tithing of his children and of everything he had, according to the promise made when he escaped: 'Of everything you give me, I will give a tithe in return to you.' For this reason putting on Levi a robe of priestly sacrifice he brought him to God in Bethel. And because of this those who preside over sacrifice and liturgy according to the Law are called Levites, but those who [preside over the liturgy] according to the priestly service of divine grace have been named clergy [klhrikoi/], because it is written, 'The Levites will not have a lot among the sons of Israel. For the Lord is their share and allotment.'[3]
But David calls the changes of conditions klh=roi, wealth and poverty, slavery and mastery, peace and war: 'in your hands are my allotments.'[4]
