Diodorus Siculus 40.30.6-7
The lawgiver [i.e. Moses] laid down many rules about military training, making the young practice courage, endurance, and in short, bear every kind of hardship. He also led expeditions against the neighboring tribes and divided the large amount of land he had won into allotments. He gave lots of equal size to ordinary persons, but larger ones to the priests, so that they might enjoy larger incomes, and thus perform the service of God without cessation or distraction. Ordinary persons were forbidden to sell their own lots in case anybody was led by greed to buy lots, oppress the poor and cause depopulation.
