Leviticus 27:30-34  – The Tithe

30 All tithes from the land, whether the seed from the ground or the fruit from the tree, are the Lord ‘s; they are holy to the Lord. 31 If persons wish to redeem any of their tithes, they must add one- fifth to them. 32 All tithes of herd and flock, every tenth one that passes under the shepherd’s staff, shall be holy to the Lord. 33 Let no one inquire whether it is good or bad, or make substitution for it; if one makes substitution for it, then both it and the substitute shall be holy and cannot be redeemed. 34 These are the commandments that the Lord gave to Moses for the people of Israel on Mount Sinai.
