"When you have finished paying all the tenth of your produce in the third year,a the year of the tenth, you are to give [it] to the Levite, the foreign resident, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.
Then you will say in the presence of the Lord your God: I have taken the consecrated portion out of my house; I have also given it to the Levite, the foreign resident, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all the commands You gave me. I have not violated or forgotten Your commands.
I have not eaten any of it while in mourning, or removed any of it while unclean, or offered any of it for the dead.b I have obeyed the Lord my God; I have done all You commanded me.
Look down from Your holy dwelling, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel and the land You have given us as You swore to our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey.
