 Thank you for your observations. Abraham paid tithes to Melchisedek;
 but the Mosaic law on tithing is post-patriarchal, after the division
 of the Land among the 12 Tribes.

 All men are sinners, Levites included. Not all Levites were priests;
 but all the priests were descended from Aaron. Aaron's two eldest sons
 abused their priesthood, and paid the ultimate penalty. Eli and his
 two sons likewise.
