Deuteronomy 26:1-19, NLT
Harvest Offerings and Tithes
1“When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you as a special possession and you have conquered it and settled there,
5“You must then say in the presence of the Lord your God, ‘My ancestor Jacob was a wandering Aramean who went to live as a foreigner in Egypt. His family arrived few in number, but in Egypt they became a large and mighty nation.
12“Every third year you must offer a special tithe of your crops. In this year of the special tithe you must give your tithes to the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows, so that they will have enough to eat in your towns.
A Call to Obey the Lord’s Commands
16“Today the Lord your God has commanded you to obey all these decrees and regulations. So be careful to obey them wholeheartedly.
