And you shall feast there, in the presence of the LORD your God, and rejoice with your household.
27 כז
וְהַלֵּוִ֥י אֲשֶׁר־בִּשְׁעָרֶ֖יךָ לֹ֣א תַֽעַזְבֶ֑נּוּ כִּ֣י אֵ֥ין ל֛וֹ חֵ֥לֶק וְנַחֲלָ֖ה עִמָּֽךְ׃ (ס) But do not neglect the Levite in your community, for he has no hereditary portion as you have.
