Property Given to Religion

The firstborn of man and beast was by Divine requirement given to The Lord (Exodus 13:2 ). In addition to this the Hebrews were required to give,

  1. one-tenth of the products of their land (Leviticus 27:30 );
  2. one-tenth of the increase of flocks and herds (Leviticus 37:32-34 );
  3. a special tithe every third year (Deuteronomy 14:28,29 );
  4. to the poor at all times (Deuteronomy 15:7-11 );
  5. according to their ability when they attended their annual feasts (Deuteronomy 16:16,17 );
  6. the first fruits of the land (Exodus 22:29; Deuteronomy 26:1-11 ).
