Here is an excerpt from ISBE:

Genesis 28:20-22 records Jacob's vow to tithe all of the increase that God 
would give him. This was predicated upon the supposition that God would care 
for him and prosper his way; the Lord would be Jacob's God, and he would 
give a tenth to confirm that fact. The tithe went to support "God's house," 
symbolized by the pillar (v 22); this proleptically demonstrated a major 
purpose of the tithe in later Israel, namely, the care of God's house.
v verse(s); versus
Bromiley, Geoffrey W.: The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, 
Revised. Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1988; 2002, S. 4:862

Maybe this will prove to be a welcome change of subject in the group.
