- Numbers 25:13 And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

- Doctrine and Covenants 84:40 Therefore, all those who receive the priesthood, receive this oath and covenant of my Father, which he cannot break, neither can it be moved.
Why is D&C 84 such a puzzle?? 🙂
What is the relationship between this promise of priesthood for him, “and his seed after him,” and the promise to Adam – Abraham of having a chosen seed with priesthood? This is Aaron’s son, so is this what we’re looking at in D&C 107 about literal descendants of Aaron?
What to make of the wording in D&C 84: “this is according to the oath and covenant which belongeth to the priesthood”? I can’t wait until I understand all this and look back and smile at myself!
