 14:28
14:27 This, however, does not mean that you can abandon the Levite in your settlements. [You must give him your first tithe] since he has no hereditary portion with you.
VehaLevi asher-bish'areycha lo ta'azvenu ki eyn lo chelek venachalah imach.
14:28 At the end of each three year period, you must bring out all the tithes of that year's crop, and place them in your settlements.
Miktseh shalosh shanim totsi et-kol-masar tevu'atcha bashanah hahi vehinachta bish'areycha.



Commentary:

You must give him your first tithe
  (Rashi). See Numbers 11:24.

each three year period
  (Rosh HaShanah 12b; Yad, Matnoth Ani'yim 6:4). This is the tithe that is given to the poor on the third and sixth year of the Sabbatical cycle, in place of the 'second tithe.' See Deuteronomy, 26:12.
