Levi’s faithful one

Deuteronomy 33:8-11 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 33:8 He said about Levi: Your Darks and Lights belong to your faithful one; you tested him at Massah and contended with him at the Water of Meribah.
Deuteronomy 33:9 He said about his father and mother, “I do not regard them.” He disregarded his brothers and didn’t acknowledge his sons, because they watched your word and maintained your covenant.
Deuteronomy 33:10 They will teach your rules to Jacob and your instruction to Israel; they will place incense before you and whole burnt offerings on your altar.
Deuteronomy 33:11 Yahveh, empower his possessions, and accept the work of his hands. Break the back of his adversaries and enemies, so that they cannot rise again.

Levi’s faithful one

Levi was the tribe entrusted with the Darks and Lights — the way of determining the Lord’s direction in questions of uncertainty. They were entrusted with teaching the rules of the covenant in order to keep the covenant relationship. They were to maintain the worship in the tabernacle.

Under the new covenant, there is no one particular tribe or caste or specialized group who decides God’s direction for us. But if we are faithful to the Lord, he will show us his way. Levi’s faithful one is our faithful one — the Lord himself.

Lord, show us which way we should go — which choice we should make.
