Levi¹

Son of Jacob, and father of the Levites.  The work of ministering in the sanctuary was assigned to his tribe. The Levites are sometimes spoken of as distinct from the priests; sometimes as though all Levites were also priests, “the priests, the Levites”. The work of the Levites was to assist the priests.
