Numbers 8:17 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

This transfer was to be completed by Aaron's waving the Levites as a wave-offering before Jehovah on behalf of the children of Israel, i.e., by his offering them symbolically to the Lord as a sacrifice presented on the part of the Israelites. The ceremony of waving consisted no doubt in his conducting the Levites solemnly up to the altar, and then back again. On the signification of the verb, see at Leviticus 7:30. The design of the waving is given in Numbers 8:11, viz., "that they might be to perform the service of Jehovah" (Numbers 8:24-26 compared with Numbers 4:4-33).
