Numbers 18:21-24New American Standard Bible (NASB)
21 “To the sons of Levi, behold, I have given all the tithe in Israel for an inheritance, in return for their service which they perform, the service of the tent of meeting.22 The sons of Israel shall not come near the tent of meeting again, or they will bear sin and die.23 Only the Levites shall perform the service of the tent of meeting, and they shall bear their iniquity; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations, and among the sons of Israel they shall have no inheritance.24 For the tithe of the sons of Israel, which they offer as an offering to the Lord, I have given to the Levites for an inheritance; therefore I have said concerning them, ‘They shall have no inheritance among the sons of Israel.’”
Deuteronomy 12:6New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 There you shall bring your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, the [a]contribution of your hand, your votive offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock.
Deuteronomy 14:22-29New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 “You shall surely tithe all the produce from [a]what you sow, which comes out of the field every year.23 You shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God, at the place where He chooses to establish His name, the tithe of your grain, your new wine, your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and your flock, so that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always.24 If the [b]distance is so great for you that you are not able to [c]bring the tithe, since the place where the Lord your God chooses to set His name is too far away from you when the Lord your God blesses you,25 then you shall [d]exchange it for money, and bind the money in your hand and go to the place which the Lord your God chooses.26 You may spend the money for whatever your [e]heart desires: for oxen, or sheep, or wine, or strong drink, or whatever your [f]heart [g]desires; and there you shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice, you and your household.27 Also you shall not neglect the Levite who is in your [h]town, for he has no portion or inheritance among you.
28 “At the end of every third year you shall bring out all the tithe of your produce in that year, and shall deposit it in your [i]town.29 The Levite, because he has no portion or inheritance among you, and the alien, the [j]orphan and the widow who are in your [k]town, shall come and eat and be satisfied, in order that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
