The selling of Joseph was part of God's divine plan for him to save his tribes. He was placed in Egypt so as to preserve lives as a result of preserving food to avert the Famine Genesis ''Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life''.
According to the Torah, the tribe is named after Levi, one of the twelve sons of Jacob (also called Israel). Levi had three sons: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari (Genesis 46:11). Kohath's son Amram was the father of Miriam, Aaron and Moses.
God declared Joshua, son of Nun, as Moses' successor. Joshua was a man with the spirit of God, a long associate of Moses. Moses was to invest Joshua with some of his authority so that all the congregation of Israel would obey him. Numbers 27:18-20
According to the Book of Judges, Deborah (Hebrew: דְּבוֹרָה, Devora, "Bee") was a prophetess of the God of the Israelites, the fourth Judge of pre-monarchic Israel and the only female judge mentioned in the Bible, and the wife of Lapidoth.
