In poetry:

Remember the poor in yon damp dismal shed,
Without food, fire, or clothing to warm them;
And not like the Priest or the Levite pass by,
But Samaritan like stop and cheer them.
"November" by Mary Ann H T Bigelow

He trod the sacred temple’s inner floors;
But kindness beamed in every look and word
He gave the humblest Levite at the doors.

Next morn, the Chief of the assembled tribes,
The populace, the Levites, and the scribes,
Brought Jesus bound, unto the Judgement-hall,
There to be tri'd, and judg'd before them all.

Many pass'd by him who saw his dejection,
Yet none in their kindness his deep wants relieved:
Both "Priest and Levite" passed by in succession,
With cold-like indifference to the bereav'd.

Widow. The word consumes itself —-
Body, a sheet of newsprint on the fire
Levitating a numb minute in the updraft
Over the scalding, red topography
That will put her heart out like an only eye.
"Widow" by Sylvia Plath
Law is holy; but not your law, ye who keep the tablets whole
While ye dash the Law to pieces, shatter it in life and soul;
Bearing up the Ark is lightsome, golden Apis hid within,
While we Levites share the offerings, richer by the people's sin.
"Anti-Apis" by James Russell Lowell
