Deuteronomy 26:12-13

Context
Presentation of the Third-year Tithe

26:12 When you finish tithing all 1  your income in the third year (the year of tithing), you must give it to the Levites, the resident foreigners, the orphans, and the widows 2  so that they may eat to their satisfaction in your villages. 3  26:13 Then you shall say before the Lord your God, “I have removed the sacred offering 4  from my house and given it to the Levites, the resident foreigners, the orphans, and the widows just as you have commanded me. 5  I have not violated or forgotten your commandments.

1 tn Heb includes “the tithes of.” This has not been included in the translation to avoid redundancy.

2 tn The terms “Levite, resident foreigner, orphan, and widow” are collective singulars in the Hebrew text (also in v. 13).

3 tn Heb “gates.”

4 tn Heb “the sacred thing.” The term הַקֹּדֶשׁ (haqqodesh) likely refers to an offering normally set apart for the Lord but, as a third-year tithe, given on this occasion to people in need. Sometimes this is translated as “the sacred portion” (cf. NASB, NIV, NRSV), but that could sound to a modern reader as if a part of the house were being removed and given away.

5 tn Heb “according to all your commandment that you commanded me.” This has been simplified in the translation for stylistic reasons.
