CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
21:2 The Lord commanded - Observe: the maintenance of ministers is not an arbitrary thing, left purely to the good will of the people. No: as the God of Israel commanded, that the Levites should be provided for, so hath the Lord Jesus ordained, (and a perpetual ordinance it is) that they who preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
"The Levites always have the right to buy back a house they have sold within the towns allotted to them.
"Command the people of Israel to give to the Levites from their property certain towns to live in, along with the surrounding pasturelands.
So the land was distributed in strict accordance with the LORD's commands to Moses.
So by the command of the LORD the people of Israel gave the Levites the following towns and pasturelands out of their own grants of land.
