Do this at the appointed time in the month of the Aviv, for in that month you came out of Mitzrayim. No one is to appear before me empty-handed. And the Feast of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field. And the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field. Three times a year all the men are to appear before Adonai Yehovah. (Shemot 23: 1517)

What Do We Tithe?

"'A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit

"'A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to Yehovah; it is holy to Yehovah. If a man redeems any of his tithe, he must add a fifth of the value to it. The entire tithe of the herd and flock-- every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd's rod-- will be holy to Yehovah. He must not pick out the good from the bad or make any substitution. If he does make a substitution, both the animal and its substitute become holy and cannot be redeemed. '“ Vayiqra 27: 30 -33

Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of Yehovah your Elohim at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere Yehovah your Elohim always. But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by Yehovah your Elohim and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where Yehovah will choose to put his Name is so far away), then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place Yehovah your Elohim will choose.

Test me in this, " says Yehovah Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.
