Num 3:10 - Death of the Layman
We've all heard people refer to non full-time ministry people as "layman," which is clearly a term used in the OT to distinguish between the Levites and the rest of the 11 tribes of Israel. In the NIV they replace the term "layman" with "everyone else." In the OT God used this distinguishing factor so everyone would know who was allowed to be in the Tabernacle and offer the sacrifices and who wasn't. Only the Levites could do the duties of the priest and see to the upkeep of the tabernacle.
