Dead Sea Scroll, Septuagint; Masoretic Text lacks  Give to Levi
e  your Thummim,
and your Urim to your godly one,
f  whom you tested at Massah,
with whom you quarreled at the waters of Meribah;
9who said of his father and mother,
‘I regard them not’;
g  he disowned his brothers
and ignored his children.
For h  they observed your word
and kept your covenant.
10 i  They shall teach Jacob your rules
and Israel your law;
j  they shall put incense before you
and k  whole burnt offerings on your altar.
11Bless, O  Lord, his substance,
and l  accept the work of his hands;
crush the loins of his adversaries,
of those who hate him, that they rise not again.”

Joshua 21:3

3So by command of the  Lord the people of Israel gave to the Levites the following cities and pasturelands out of their inheritance.
