Ezekiel 48:11

"This hallowed place shall belong to the Kohanim of the sons of Zadok, who safeguarded My charge, who did not stray when the Children of Israel strayed, as the Levites had strayed."
Ezekiel 48:11

What is the straying of the Levites referred to in this verse?

I'm having trouble understanding the full Radak on that phrase. However, I do understand the first part of it (I think): He says the leviim mentioned here are also cohanim, just the ones who are not the sons of Tzadok.

So the Leviim who strayed were Kohanim who were not following the commandments, as opposed to other Kohanim who were following the commandments?

Ok, that makes sense.

Teiku (Let the question stand [unresolved]), as the Gemara often says. :)
