 It seems to me that the purpose of the Tithe was to provide an
 income for the tribe of Levi, who were not allowed to possess lands
 or properties in order to support themselves. They could then devote
 all their time and energy to the maintenance of the Tabernacle and
 Temple cultus, serving God and His people.

 That would seem to be the purpose in Leviticus 27, Numbers 18 and
 Deuteronomy 12 and 14. Also in 2 Chronicles 31, Nehemiah 13, and
 Malachi 3.

 Shalom

 Ben
