Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year... the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD. ..who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people. Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts. But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Deuteronomy 14:22 Leviticus 27:32 Hebrews 7:5 Malachi 3:8,10,11,12 Luke 11:42
