The Poor Never Tithed

Give one example of a poor person in the Bible who tithed.

Who benefited from the tithe?

The widow, the orphan, the alien and the Levites. (The Levites are included in this list because they were not allowed to own land or have a business.)

When you have finished setting aside a tenth of all your produce in the third year, the year of the tithe, you shall give it to the Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.
Deuteronomy 26:12

This is the tithe that Malachi 3 is talking about.

Have we taught this to people?
