18:26 “You are to speak to the Levites, and you must tell them, ‘When you receive from the Israelites the tithe that I have given you from them as your inheritance, then you are to offer up from it as a raised offering to the Lord a tenth of the tithe.
18:27 And your raised offering will be credited to you as though it were grain from the threshing floor or as new wine from the winepress.
18:28 Thus you are to offer up a raised offering to the Lord of all your tithes which you receive from the Israelites; and you must give the Lord’s raised offering from it to Aaron the priest.
18:29 From all your gifts you must offer up every raised offering due the Lord, from all the best of it, and the holiest part of it.’
18:30 “Therefore you will say to them, ‘When you offer up the best of it, then it will be credited to the Levites as the product of the threshing floor and as the product of the winepress.
18:31 And you may eat it in any place, you and your household, because it is your wages for your service in the tent of meeting.
18:32 And you will bear no sin concerning it when you offer up the best of it. And you must not profane the holy things of the Israelites, or else you will die.’”
