If you look up Numbers 18:26-32, it should mention it there.

The above answer does mention tithing. But the main scripture is

in the book Malachi where it talks about how we are cursed if we

don't tithe. Also in the bible and I can't remember where and I'm

tring to find it it mentions that a tithe is 10% but anything more

than that is a gift or offering.

In Malachi 3: 8-12

"Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, 'In

what way have we robbed You?' In thithes and offerings. You are

cursed with a curse for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation.

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may food in my

house, And try me now in this," Says the Lord of Hosts. If I will

not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such

blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. "

And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes So that he will

not destroy the fruit of your ground, not shall the vine fail to

bear fruit for you in the field.

Inother words God telling us to test him and see if he wont come

through with the promise of such blessings that we can barely

contain it. Kinda like the story in John 21 about the disciples who

caught so much fish they had to have help getting the net in the


Hope this helps
