28 And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the gate-keepers, those singing, the Nethinims, and all being separated from the people of the lands to the law of God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, all knowing understanding; 29 Holding upon their brethren, their mighty ones, and coming into a curse, and into an oath, to go in the law of God which was given by the hand of Moses the servant of God, and to watch and to do all the command of Jehovah our Lord, and his judgments and his ordinances;
30 And that we will not give our daughters to the people of the land, and we will not take their daughters to our sons:
31 And the people of the land bringing wares and all grain in the day of the Sabbath to sell, we will not take from them in the Sabbath and in the holy day: and we will leave the seventh year, and the debt of every hand.
32 And we set up commands for us to give for us the third of the shekel in the year for the service of the house of our God. 33 For the bread of the arrangement and the gift of continuance, and for the burnt-offering of continuance of the Sabbaths, the new moons, for the appointments and for the holies, and for the sins, to expiate for Israel and all the work of the house of our God.
34 And we cast the lots for the oblation of the woods, of the priests, the Levites and the people, to bring to the house of our God, for the house of our fathers at the times appointed year by year, to burn upon the altar of Jehovah our God, as written in the law:
35 And to bring the first-fruits of our land, and the first-fruits of all fruit of the tree year by year, to the house of Jehovah: 36 And the first-born of our sons, and of our cattle, as written in the law; and the first-born of our herds and our flocks, to bring to the house of our God, to the priests serving in the house of our God, 37 And the first-fruits of our groats and our oblations, and the fruits of every tree, new wine and new oil we shall bring to the priests to the cells of the house of our God; and the tenth of our lands to the Levites, and these Levites giving tenths in all the cities of our work. 38 And the priest the son of Aaron being with the Levites in the tenth of the Levites: and the Levites shall bring up the tenth of the tenth to the house of our God to the cells to the house of the treasure. 39 For to the cells shall the sons of Israel and the sons of Levi bring the oblations of the grain, of the new wine and the new oil, and there the vessels of the holy place, and the priests serving, and the gate-keepers and those singing: and we will not forsake the house of our God.
