LEVITICUS

Third book of the Bible, named from its contents, which deal entirely with the service of God and the religious ceremonies to be performed by the members of the tribe of Levi, both priests and Levites. Its divisions are: the rites of sacrifice (1-7), consecration and installation of priests (8-10), the laws of purity (11-16), the law of holiness (17-22), religious institutions (23-25), blessings and curses (26). The book strongly emphasizes the divine majesty and the duty to honor and obey God as sovereign Lord.
