Verse of the Day: Jacob Gave a Tenth to God

June 4, 2007


22 And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house, and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.”

Genesis 28:22 (NKJV)

22 And this memorial pillar I have set up will become a place for worshiping God, and I will present to God a tenth of everything he gives me.”

Genesis 28:22 (NLT)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

Jacob promised to give a tenth of his possessions to God. His grandfather Abraham had given the same proportion to Melchizedek, the priest of God Most High (14:20). Later, the Mosaic Law required giving a tenth to God (Deut. 14:22).
