    Definitions for Deuteronomy 14:22

    Tithe - The tenth part; /.

    Clarke's Commentary on Deuteronomy 14:22

    Thou shalt truly tithe - Meaning the second tithe which themselves were to eat, Deuteronomy 14:23, for there was a first tithe that was given to the Levites, out of which they paid a tenth part to the priests, Numbers 18:24-28; Nehemiah 10:37, Nehemiah 10:38. Then of that which remained, the owners separated a second tithe, which they ate before the Lord the first and second year; and in the third year it was given to the Levites and to the poor, Deuteronomy 14:28, Deuteronomy 14:29. In the fourth and fifth years it was eaten again by the owners, and in the sixth year was given to the poor. The seventh year was a Sabbath to the land, and then all things were common, Exodus 23:10, Exodus 23:11, where see the notes, Exodus 23:11 (note), and see Ainsworth on this verse.

    Barnes' Notes on Deuteronomy 14:22

    These words recall in general terms the command of the earlier legislation respecting tithes (compare Leviticus 27:30; Numbers 18:26), but refer more particularly to the second or festival tithe, which was an exclusively vegetable one.

    Wesley's Notes on Deuteronomy 14:22

    14:22 All the increase - This is to be understood of the second tithes, which seem to be the same with the tithes of the first year, mentioned De 14:28.
