  • Hebrews 7:5
    And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham;
     
  • Numbers 18:20-24
    Then the LORD said to Aaron: “You shall have no inheritance in their land, nor shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the children of Israel. “Behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tithes in Israel as an inheritance in return for the work which they perform, the work of the tabernacle of meeting. Hereafter the children of Israel shall not come near the tabernacle of meeting, lest they bear sin and die. But the Levites shall perform the work of the tabernacle of meeting, and they shall bear their iniquity; it shall be a statute forever, throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer up as a heave offering to the LORD, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance; therefore I have said to them, ‘Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.’”
     
  • Hebrews 7:9-12
    Even Levi, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak, for he was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek met him. Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called according to the order of Aaron? For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law.
     
  • Leviticus 27:30
    And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD"s. It is holy to the LORD.
     
  • Malachi 3:9-10
    You are cursed with a curse,
    For you have robbed Me,
    Even this whole nation.
    Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
    That there may be food in My house,
    And try Me now in this,"
    Says the LORD of hosts,
    "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
    And pour out for you such blessing
    That there will not be room enough to receive it.

     
  • 1 Corinthians 9:13
    Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar?
     
  • Deuteronomy 14:27
    You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you.
     
  • Hebrews 9:8-10
    the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing. It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience— concerned only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.
     
  • Numbers 8:16-18
    For they are wholly given to Me from among the children of Israel; I have taken them for Myself instead of all who open the womb, the firstborn of all the children of Israel. For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are Mine, both man and beast; on the day that I struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I sanctified them to Myself. I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn of the children of Israel.
     
  • Deuteronomy 26:12-15
    “When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year—the year of tithing—and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled, then you shall say before the LORD your God: ‘I have removed the holy tithe from my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed Your commandments, nor have I forgotten them. I have not eaten any of it when in mourning, nor have I removed any of it for an unclean use, nor given any of it for the dead. I have obeyed the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that You have commanded me. Look down from Your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel and the land which You have given us, just as You swore to our fathers, “a land flowing with milk and honey.”’
     
  • Malachi 1:6-14
    " A son honors his father,
    And a servant his master.
    If then I am the Father,
    Where is My honor?
    And if I am a Master,
    Where is My reverence?
    Says the LORD of hosts
    To you priests who despise My name.
    Yet you say, "In what way have we despised Your name?"
    " You offer defiled food on My altar,
    But say,
    " In what way have we defiled You?"
    By saying,
    " The table of the LORD is contemptible."
    And when you offer the blind as a sacrifice,
    Is it not evil?
    And when you offer the lame and sick,
    Is it not evil?
    Offer it then to your governor!
    Would he be pleased with you?
    Would he accept you favorably?'
    Says the LORD of hosts.
    ' But now entreat God's favor,
    That He may be gracious to us.
    Whilethis is being done by your hands,
    Will He accept you favorably?'
    Says the LORD of hosts.
    ' Who is there even among you who would shut the doors,
    So that you would not kindle fire on My altar in vain?
    I have no pleasure in you,'
    Says the LORD of hosts,
    ' Nor will I accept an offering from your hands.
    For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down,
    My name shall be great among the Gentiles;
    In every place incense shall be offered to My name,
    And a pure offering;
    For My name shall be great among the nations,'
    Says the LORD of hosts.
    ' But you profane it,
    In that you say,
    ' The table of the LORD is defiled;
    And its fruit, its food, is contemptible.'
    You also say,
    ‘ Oh, what a weariness!’
    And you sneer at it,”
    Says the LORD of hosts.
    “ And you bring the stolen, the lame, and the sick;
    Thus you bring an offering!
    Should I accept this from your hand?”
    Says the LORD.
    “ But cursed be the deceiver
    Who has in his flock a male,
    And takes a vow,
    But sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished—
    For I am a great King,”
    Says the LORD of hosts,
    “ And My name is to be feared among the nations.
     
  • Hebrews 5:1-4
    For every high priest taken from among men is appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins. He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness. Because of this he is required as for the people, so also for himself, to offer sacrifices for sins. And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as Aaron was.
     
  • Hebrews 8:7-8
    For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. Because finding fault with them, He says: "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah—
