7. (O.T.) The tithe under the wicked kings

The Tithe?

7.  Old Testament
The Tithe Under the Wicked Kings
(Amos 4:2-6)
(Please read previous artiacles on tithing first)

There is no mention of the tithe given to the LORD during the reign of the wicked kings in Judah or Israel. The only mention of any tithes came from Amos 4:2-6; however, it was written as a stern warning because the tithes were given to pagan idols at the temples in Bethel and Gilgal. These were years of deep apostasy, and worship to the LORD was foreign to Israel and Judah. The Levitical priesthood was nonexistent at this time. Many of them probably became beggars or family priests.
