Levy


"(1 Kings 4:6, R.V.; 5:13), forced service. The service of" tributaries was often thus exacted by kings. Solomon raised a "great levy of 30,000 men, about two per cent. of the" "population, to work for him by courses on Lebanon. Adoram" (12:18) presided over this forced labour service (Ger. Frohndienst; Fr. corvee).
