The first part of the chapter is an almost exact repeat of Leviticus 11 (including the list of various owls - sadly not accommodated in my summary).

There seems to be uncertainty among scholars as to whether the second part of the chapter refers to one tithe or to two. I've tried to preserve the ambiguity in the summary.


A promise....Upon giving the tithe V 29.... the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.
