29 They joined with their brothers and their nobles, to entered into a curse, and into an oath to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, with his judgments and his statutes;
30 And that we would not give our daughters to the people of the land, not take their daughters for our sons.
31 And if the people of the land bring goods or any food on the sabbath day to sell, that we would not buy it from them on the sabbath, or on a holy day: and that we would leave [the land fallow with not crops] every seventh year, and will cancel all debts.
32 We made ordinances for us, to charge ourselves yearly with the third part of a shekel for the service of the house of our God;
33 For the show bread, for the continual meat offering, for the continual burnt offering of the sabbaths and of the new moons, for the set feasts, for the holy things, for the sin offerings to make an atonement for Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God.
34 And we cast the lots among the priests, the Levites, and the people, for the wood offering, to bring it into the house of our God, according to the houses of our fathers, at times appointed year by year, to burn upon the altar of the LORD our God, as it is written in the law;
35 And to bring the first fruits of our ground, and the first fruits of all fruit of all trees, year by year, to the house of the LORD;
36 Also the firstborn of our sons, and of our cattle, as it is written in the law, and the firstlings of our herds and of our flocks, to bring to the house of our God, to the priests that minister in the house of our God;
37 And that we should bring the first fruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, to the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground to the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.
38 And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes; and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes to the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.
39 For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the corn, of the new wine, and the oil to the chambers in which are the vessels of the sanctuary, the priests that minister, the porters, and the singers; and we will not forsake the house of our God.
