And the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes to the house of our God, to the chambers of ae the storehouse. 39 For the people of Israel and the sons of Levi af shall bring the contribution of grain, wine, and oil to the chambers, where the vessels of the sanctuary are, as well as the priests who minister, and the gatekeepers and the singers. ag We will not neglect the house of our God.”
