Deuteronomy 14:28  (King James Version)
At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates:
 


the end
22 ; 26:12-15 Amos 4:4

thou shalt bring
As the Levites had no inheritance, the Israelites were not to forget them, but truly tithe their increase. For their support, the Levites had, 1. The tenth of all the productions of the land
2. Forty-eight cities, each forming a square of Deuteronomy 14:4 Deuteronomy 14:000 ; cubits
3. Two thousand cubits of ground round each
city; total of land, Deuteronomy 14:53 Deuteronomy 14:000 ; acres 4. The first-fruits, and certain parts of all the animals killed in the land. But though this was a very small proportion for a whole tribe that had consented to annihilate its political existence, that it might wait upon the service of God, yet, let it be considered, that what they possessed was the best of the land: and while it was slender remuneration for their services, yet their portion was such as rendered them independent, and kept them comfortable; so that they could wait on God, and labour in his work, without distraction.
