Consecrated to Christ
'And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before
Aaron the priest, that they may minister to him. They shall keep guard over him and
over the whole congregation before the tent of meeting, as they minister at the
tabernacle. They shall guard all the furnishings of the tent of meeting, and keep guard
over the people of Israel as they minister at the tabernacle. And you shall give the
Levites to Aaron and his sons; they are wholly given to him from among the people of
Israel. And you shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall guard their priesthood.
But if any outsider comes near, he shall be put to death.” And the Lord spoke to Moses,
saying, “Behold, I have taken the Levites from among the people of Israel instead of
every firstborn who opens the womb among the people of Israel. The Levites shall be
mine, for all the firstborn are mine. On the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the
land of Egypt, I consecrated for my own all the firstborn in Israel, both of man and of
beast. They shall be mine: I am the Lord .” '
