February 25th, Leviticus 26-27: Reward for obedience and payments to the LORD

Leviticus 26 warns the Israelites that obedience to the LORD’s commandments will result in reward, but disobedience would be met with punishment. Follow God’s Word and conquer your enemies, but forget God’s Word and be conquered by your enemies. But no matter what, God will remember His covenant with the Israelites and will not allow them to be destroyed completely when they are in the land of their enemies.

Leviticus 27 outlines the value of payments to the LORD, setting the value of a male between the ages of twenty and sixth at fifty shekels and a female of that age at thirty shekels. The priest would determine the value of things if not clearly laid out in this chapter. And this is where we get the idea that one should tithe a tenth of one’s earnings at a minimum.

Leviticus 27:32 says,
32 The entire tithe of the herd and flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd’s rod—will be holy to the LORD.
