When you have finished setting aside a tenth1 of all your produce in the third year, the year of the tithe,2 you shall give it to the Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.
Then say to the LORD your God: "I have removed from my house the sacred portion and have given it to the Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow, according to all you commanded. I have not turned aside from your commands nor have I forgotten any of them.314
I have not eaten any of the sacred portion while I was in mourning, nor have I removed any of it while I was unclean,4 nor have I offered any of it to the dead. I have obeyed the LORD my God; I have done everything you commanded me.
Look down from heaven,5 your holy dwelling place, and bless6 your people Israel and the land you have given us as you promised on oath to our forefathers, a land flowing with milk and honey."
