30 and 1that we will not give our daughters to the peoples of the land or take their daughters for our sons. 31 As 2for the peoples of the land who bring wares or any grain on the sabbath day to sell, we will not buy from them on the sabbath or a holy day; and we will forego the crops the 3seventh year and the 4exaction of every debt. 32 We also aplaced ourselves under obligation to contribute yearly 5one third of a shekel for the service of the house of our God: 33 for the 6showbread , for the continual grain offering, for the continual burnt offering, the sabbaths, the new moon, for the appointed times, for the holy things and for the sin offerings to make atonement for Israel, and all the work of the house of our God. 34 Likewise 7we cast lots 8for the supply of wood among the priests, the Levites and the people so that they might bring it to the house of our God, according to our fathers' households, at fixed times annually, to burn on the altar of the LORD our God, as it is written in the law; 35 and that they might bring the first fruits of our ground and 9the first fruits of all the fruit of every tree to the house of the LORD annually, 36 and 10bring to the house of our God the firstborn of our sons and of our cattle, and the firstborn of our herds and our flocks as it is written in the law, for the priests who are ministering in the house of our God. 37 11We will also bring the first of our bdough, our contributions, the fruit of every tree, the new wine and the oil 12to the priests at the chambers of the house of our God, and the 13tithe of our ground to the Levites, for the Levites are they who receive the tithes in all the rural towns. 38 14The priest, the son of Aaron, shall be with the Levites when the Levites receive tithes, and the Levites shall bring up the tenth of the tithes to the house of our God, to the chambers of 15the storehouse. 39 For the sons of Israel and the sons of Levi shall bring the 16contribution of the grain, the new wine and the oil to the chambers; there are the utensils of the sanctuary, the priests who are ministering, the gatekeepers and the singers. Thus 17we will not cneglect the house of our God.
