Numbers 18:25-28 King James Version (KJV)
25 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.
27 And this your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though it were the corn of the threshing floor, and as the fulness of the winepress.
28 Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the LORDís heave offering to Aaron the priest.
Numbers 18:25-28 Amplified Bible (AMP)
25 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,26 ďMoreover, you shall speak to the Levites and say to them, ĎWhen you take from the Israelites the tithe which I have given to you from them as your inheritance, then you shall present an offering from it to the LORD, a tithe of the tithe [paid by the people]. 27 Your offering shall be credited to you as the grain from the threshing floor or as the full produce from the wine vat. 28 Likewise you shall also present an offering to the LORD from all your tithes, which you receive from the Israelites; and from it you shall give the LORDíS offering to Aaron the priest.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
25 The Lord at this always spoke thru Moses, it was for the people to trust Moses by telling them Godís word, today we have Godís word and we can judge whether someone is sharing Godís word by us knowing Godís word.
26-27 Moses had to speak to the Levites; this was his family, the tribe he was from. The Levites had to tithe what the Lord provided them as well. Servants of the Lord are no spared from giving to the Lord. Their offering would just as could as anyone elseís, them being able to give to God required the people to give to them but regardless of how little the people give them they are to give tenth back to the Lord.
28 They are to give it to the high priest who was Aaron at that time and he would give it back to the Lord.
