Concerning the tithe of the tithe, Numbers 18:28 (LEB) states:
So you will present your own contribution to Yahweh from all your tithes that you receive from the Israelites; from it you will give the contribution of Yahweh to Aaron the priest.
Yet, two chapters later when God has finished speaking, almost the very next point in the narrative is Aaron being "gathered to his people" up on Mount Hor where he dies in the presence of all Israel.
Why then is Aaron specifically named in this command in 18:28? Why doesn't it say "give the contribution of Yahweh to the high priest" instead? Or should that be considered implied?
