Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 27:32


27:32 Under the rod - Either, The tither's rod, it being the manner of the Jews in tithing to cause all their cattle to pass through some gate or narrow passage, where the tenth was marked by a person appointed for that purpose and reserved for the priest. Or, the shepherd's rod, under which the herds and flocks passed, and by which they were governed and numbered. See #Jer 33:13 Eze 20:37|.

    As I continue my study on tithing I have made up my mind that my tenth is render unto God and if the church does not do what God has set fouth for the church to do with the tithe that I pay then I pray that God would deal with the church.

    Galatians 2:16-17. Is really the answer, Are you still sinning? Christ is not the minister of sin, and your burden to pay tithes will not atone for it.

    Nita, if you 're having issues with your current church in regards to leadership, then I would suggest finding another church which you can support. The tithe is important as it reflects your trust in the Lord for all you have and are. Sadly, some people look for a 'loophole ' to avoid paying their tithe by presenting examples such as you have. Ask the Lord for direction in finding a new church home or if He wants you to stay where you 're at.
  • I am trying to learn more about tithing, i 'm finding the church we tithe to has some serious compromising in leadership. should i not be concerned about where i tithe and what its used for as long as it is a church? please help me underestand.

    Leviticus 27 34 Again, these commandments were given to Moses on Mt. Sinai by the Lord. People think they are supposed to obey the ten commandments, but if they believe that why don 't they follow all the other commandments, statutes, and judgments given to Moses on Mt. Sinai?
  • Yetunde Babatunde for verse 31
    I now understand better that there are considerations in the bible for those who want to pay part can 't pay all at once. used to pay just the amount i calculated as tithe before even when i paid part. But now, I know better.
