To the store - house - This was one or more large rooms, built on purpose for this use. That there may be meat - For the priests and Levites to live upon. Prove me - Make the experiment.

    Answering Galatians 2:20: The second greatest commandment; after loving the LORD our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; is to love our neighbor as ourselves. When the King sits upon His throne, and all are gathered before Him for eternal judgment; it is how we cared for His poor and needy, His sick and strangers and imprisoned, that will set us either on His right hand, or His left.
  • Michael C.
    v 8: Abraham gave one tenth of the spoils to Melchizedek, but took not so much as a shoelace from the king of Sodom; for he had lift up his hand to the LORD. Rendering to the LORD the beginning of our strength, is a sign of the grace of Christ in our heart; which is shown by love. It is better for the Lord's servants to pay their own way, than to give occasion to the adversaries to speak evil.
