View In My Bible
30 1We will not give our daughters to the peoples of the land or take their daughters for our sons. 31 2And if the peoples of the land bring in goods or any grain on the Sabbath day to sell, we will not buy from them on the Sabbath or on a holy day. And we will forego the crops of the 3seventh year and the 4exaction of every debt. 32 "We also take on ourselves the obligation to give yearly 5a third part of a shekela for the service of the house of our God: 33 6for the showbread, 7the regular grain offering, 8the regular burnt offering, the Sabbaths, the new moons, the appointed feasts, the holy things, and the sin offerings to make atonement for Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God. 34 9We, the priests, the Levites, and the people, have likewise cast lots 10for the wood offering, to bring it into the house of our God, according to our fathers' houses, at times appointed, year by year, to burn on the altar of the LORD our God, 11as it is written in the Law. 35 We obligate ourselves 12to bring the firstfruits of our ground and the firstfruits of all fruit of every tree, year by year, to the house of the LORD; 36 also to bring to the house of our God, to the priests who minister in the house of our God, the firstborn of our sons and of our cattle, 13as it is written in the Law, and the firstborn of our herds and of our flocks; 37 14and to bring the first of our dough, and our contributions, the fruit of every tree, the wine and the oil, to the priests, 15to the chambers of the house of our God; and to bring to the Levites the tithes from our ground, for it is the Levites who collect the tithes in all our towns where we labor. 38 And the priest, the son of Aaron, shall be with the Levites when the Levites receive the tithes. And the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes to the house of our God, to the chambers of 16the storehouse. 39 For the people of Israel and the sons of Levi 17shall bring the contribution of grain, wine, and oil to the chambers, where the vessels of the sanctuary are, as well as the priests who minister, and the gatekeepers and the singers. 18We will not neglect the house of our God."
