Leviticus 27:30-32

(30) "`And every tenth part of the land, out of the seed of the land and the fruit of the tree, belongs to Jehovah. It is something holy to Jehovah. (31) And if a man wants to buy any of his tenth part back at all, he should give a fifth of it in addition to it. (32) As for every tenth part of the herd and flock, everything that passes under the crook, the tenth head should become something holy to Jehovah."

Numbers 18:25-29

(25) Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying: Num18:(6) "And you should speak to the Levites, and you must say to them, `YOU will receive from the sons of Israel the tenth part that I have given to YOU from them for YOUR inheritance, and YOU must contribute from it as a contribution to Jehovah a tenth part of the tenth part. (27) And it must be reckoned to YOU as YOUR contribution, like the grain of the threshing floor and like the full produce of the wine or oil press. (28) In this way YOU yourselves also will contribute a contribution to Jehovah from all YOUR tenth parts that YOU will receive from the sons of Israel, and from them YOU must give the contribution to Jehovah to Aaron the priest. (29) From all the gifts to YOU, YOU will contribute every sort of contribution to Jehovah, of the very best of it, as some holy thing from them.'"
