STRONGS NT 3019: Λευίτης

Λευίτης (T WH Λευειτης (so Tr except in Acts 4:36; see εἰ, )), Λευίτου, , a Levite;

a. one of Levi's posterity.

b. in a norrower sense those were called Levites (Hebrew לֵוִי בְּנֵי, לְוִיִּים) who, not being of the race of Aaron for whom alone the priesthood was reserved, served as assistants of the priests. It was their duty to keep the sacred utensils and the temple clean, to provide the sacred loaves, to open and shut the gates of the temple, to sing sacred hymns in the temple, and do many other things; so Luke 10:32; John 1:19; Acts 4:36; ((Plutarch, quaest. conv. 1. iv. quaest. 6, 5; Philo de vit. Moys. i. § 58). See BB. DD., under the word ; Edersheim, The Temple, 2nd edition, p. 63ff.)
