    Barnes' Notes on Deuteronomy 10:8

    At that time - i. e., that of the encampment at Sinai, as the words also import in Deuteronomy 10:1. Throughout the passage the time of the important events at Sinai is kept in view; it is reverted to as each incident is brought forward by Moses, alluded to sufficiently for his purpose, and dismissed.

    Moses is evidently here speaking of the election by God of the tribe of Levi at large, priests and others also, for His own service.
