Let there be taken out of your fruits a tenth, besides that which
you have allotted to give to the priests and Levites. This you may indeed
sell in the country, but it is to be used in those feasts and sacrifices
that are to be celebrated in the holy city; for it is fit that you should
enjoy those fruits of the earth which God gives you to possess, so as may
be to the honor of the donor.
