Any part of the works of the law is a curse as explained by Apostle Paul in the book of Galatians (scriptures below). The first tithe was in the old testament by Melchizedek king of Salem to Abraham, (Genesis 00355 14:18 - 24.) The first tenth was vowed to God by Jacob on a stone if God would bless him in his way, (Genesis 00794 28:20 - 22).
The author of the book of Hebrews explains (scriptures below) the Levitical tithing is under the law, and the need of a greater priest (Jesus) rise after Melchizedek.
Galatians 00056 3:9 - 14 (Paul wrote...)
9) So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 10) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11) But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12) And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law , being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Acts 00242 7:49 - 50
49) Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? 50) Hath not my hand made all these things?
Acts 00624 17:24 - 25
24) God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25) Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

Hebrews 00112 7:11
If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
