The Vow of the People

28Then the rest of the people—the priests, Levites, gatekeepers, singers, Temple servants, and all who had separated themselves from the pagan people of the land in order to obey the Law of God, together with their wives, sons, daughters, and all who were old enough to understand -H7605H5971H3548H3881H7778H7891H5411H914H5971H776H8451H430H802H1121H1323H3045H995 29joined their leaders and bound themselves with an oath. They swore a curse on themselves if they failed to obey the Law of God as issued by his servant Moses. They solemnly promised to carefully follow all the commands, regulations, and decrees of the LORD our Lord.H2388H251H117H935H423H7621H3212H430H8451H5414H3027H4872H5650H430H8104H6213H4687H3068H113H4941H2706 30"We promise not to let our daughters marry the pagan people of the land, and not to let our sons marry their daughters.H5414H1323H5971H776H3947H1323H1121 31"We also promise that if the people of the land should bring any merchandise or grain to be sold on the Sabbath or on any other holy day, we will refuse to buy it. Every seventh year we will let our land rest, and we will cancel all debts owed to us.H5971H776H935H4728H7668H7676H3117H4376H3947H7676H6944H3117H5203H7637H8141H4853H3027 32"In addition, we promise to obey the command to pay the annual Temple tax of one-eighth of an ounce of silver for the care of the Temple of our God.H5975H4687H5414H8141H7992H8255H5656H1004H430 33This will provide for the Bread of the Presence; for the regular grain offerings and burnt offerings; for the offerings on the Sabbaths, the new moon celebrations, and the annual festivals; for the holy offerings; and for the sin offerings to make atonement for Israel. It will provide for everything necessary for the work of the Temple of our God.H4635H3899H8548H4503H8548H5930H7676H2320H4150H6944H2403H3722H3478H4399H1004H430 34"We have cast sacred lots to determine when—at regular times each year—the families of the priests, Levites, and the common people should bring wood to God's Temple to be burned on the altar of the LORD our God, as is written in the Law.H5307H1486H3548H3881H5971H6086H7133H935H1004H430H1004H1H6256H2163H8141H8141H1197H4196H3068H430H3789H8451 35"We promise to bring the first part of every harvest to the LORD's Temple year after year—whether it be a crop from the soil or from our fruit trees.H935H1061H127H1061H6529H6086H8141H8141H1004H3068 36We agree to give God our oldest sons and the firstborn of all our herds and flocks, as prescribed in the Law. We will present them to the priests who minister in the Temple of our God.H1060H1121H929H3789H8451H1062H1241H6629H935H1004H430H3548H8334H1004H430 37We will store the produce in the storerooms of the Temple of our God. We will bring the best of our flour and other grain offerings, the best of our fruit, and the best of our new wine and olive oil. And we promise to bring to the Levites a tenth of everything our land produces, for it is the Levites who collect the tithes in all our rural towns.H935H7225H6182H8641H6529H6086H8492H3323H3548H3957H1004H430H4643H127H3881H3881H6237H5892H5656 38"A priest—a descendant of Aaron—will be with the Levites as they receive these tithes. And a tenth of all that is collected as tithes will be delivered by the Levites to the Temple of our God and placed in the storerooms.H3548H1121H175H3881H3881H6237H3881H5927H4643H4643H1004H430H3957H214H1004 39The people and the Levites must bring these offerings of grain, new wine, and olive oil to the storerooms and place them in the sacred containers near the ministering priests, the gatekeepers, and the singers."We promise together not to neglect the Temple of our God."H1121H3478H1121H3878H935H8641H1715H8492H3323H3957H3627H4720H3548H8334H7778H7891H5800H1004H430
