Chapter 6: Tithing. How much? To whom do you give?


Titles of YHWH Law




First Fruits Tithe

Second Tithe

Third Tithe

One of them is for the widow and the fatherless and the  alien living within your gates.


The second is for



One of them is for the Feast of Tabernacles and to spend on yourself.  God is pretty wise about this. He knew that we would need the gratification of the tithe for our own wants and desires.

Lev 27:34  These are the commands which Jehovah has commanded Moses for the sons of Israel, on Mount Sinai.




The issue of tithing is quite important to God and he has specified quite a bit of Scripture to the topic. There appear to be three, one yearly tithe of 10% of increase to be for the fatherless, the widow and the alien within your gates; the Second  to be collected every 3rd year for the fatherless and the widow and the alien within your gates; and the third to be spent yearly at the feast of Tabernacles on yourself!  My favorite tithe!
