Deuteronomy 18:6-9 reads (NIV),
If a Levite moves from one of your towns anywhere in Israel where he is living, and comes in all earnestness to the place the LORD will choose, 7 he may minister in the name of the LORD his God like all his fellow Levites who serve there in the presence of the LORD. 8 He is to share equally in their benefits, even though he has received money from the sale of family possessions.
What is the meaning of verse 8 though he has received money from his family's sales. Why would that be a deciding factor in whether he should get an equal share in the offerings divided among the priests?
