Deuteronomy 14:22-27

Tithes

22 a  You shall tithe all the yield of your seed that comes from the field year by year. 23And before the  Lord your God, in the place that he will choose, to make his name dwell there, b  you shall eat the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, c  and the firstborn of your herd and flock, d  that you may learn to fear the  Lord your God always. 24And if the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, when the  Lord your God blesses you, because e  the place is too far from you, which the  Lord your God chooses, to set his name there, 25then you shall turn it into money and bind up the money in your hand and go to the place that the  Lord your God chooses 26and spend the money for whatever you desireoxen or sheep or wine or strong drink, whatever your appetite craves. And f  you shall eat there before the  Lord your God and rejoice, you and your household. 27And you shall not neglect g  the Levite who is within your towns, for h  he has no portion or inheritance with you.
