Aristocracy of the kingdom

Aristocracy of the kingdom.

By the Aristocracy is meantime Princes of the State. In the 'commencement of Jehovah's kingdom these were Moses, Aaron of the Tribe of Levi, and elven others, one for each tribe. The sons of Aron were also sacerdotal princes, to whom may be added the Levites of the houses of Kohath, Gershom, and Merari. Besides these Moses selected the chief of the tribes, wise men and known, and made them captains over thousands, &c. to hear and judge causes, &c. These were they who possessed the kingdom, flesh and blood, mortal and corruptible men; So that Jehovah's kingdom under its first constitution anay be defined a divinely organised system of government in Israel, administered by sinful men under sentence of death.
