Him and his sons forever; referring to the establishment of the priesthood in the family of Aaron. 18:1-8 Care is taken that the priests entangle not themselves with the affairs of this life, nor enrich themselves with the wealth of this world; they have better things to mind.

He that has the benefit of solemn religious assemblies, ought to give help for the comfortable support of those that minister in such assemblies.
