EZEKIEL 44:28-30 “I am to be the only inheritance the priests have. You are to give them no possession in Israel; I will be their possession.They will eat the grain offerings, the sin offerings and the guilt offerings; and everything in Israel devoted to the LORD will belong to them.The best of all the firstfruits and of all your special gifts will belong to the priests. You are to give them the first portion of your ground meal so that a blessing may rest on your household”.
