Why do Egyptian priests keep land while Levites don't get any
In Gen 47:22, during the years of famine, Joseph takes land from everyone except the Egyptian priests. This is in direct contrast to the Jewish priests who will not own land in the Land of Israel.
Have any commentators have seen that contrast and put those two at odds and explained them?
