If you continue reading in that chapter you will see that tithes were food products from the land of Israel which were to be used to compensate the Levites for serving God in the Tabernacle as a replacement for their lost land inheritance rights in Israel (see Numbers ).
Every mention of tithe there after, is a reference to that law.
The problem is, however, that churches that use Malachi 3 to support tithing ignore five important Bible facts.
So as you can see, The truth of Malachi is completely different from what the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination teaches today about tithing.
