The end of the posuk 14 perek 8 (and they shall be to me Leviim) appears at first sight to be superfluous and thus needs further explanation.

The Oznayim LaTorah quotes Vayikra Rabbah ( Perek 3:2) to say that this phrase proves that the Leviim will continue to serve Hashem both in this world and in the world to come .

The Ohr Hachayim deduces that even though the first born (bechorim) will once again serve Hashem in the 3rd Beis Hamikdosh it will be in conjunction WITH the tribe of Levi.
