LEVY (lĕv'ē, Heb. mas, tribute). A tax or tribute, often to be rendered in service. It is used in reference to the thirty thousand free Israelites conscripted by Solomon for four months’ service a year in Lebanon (1Kgs.5.13-1Kgs.5.14 kjv); also of the tribute labor imposed on the surviving Canaanites (1Kgs.9.21 kjv). It is also used in the NIV for the tribute of gold and silver imposed by Pharaoh Neco on Judah (2Kgs.23.33; 2Chr.36.3).
