Let's do a study on this famous verse about yes , tithing , and what the phrase "mete withal" means. Could someone explain in simple terms what that means, please ? Here's the verse since I know not many people stumble upon it. 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. And what I think the whole verse is saying is that we need to tithe without complaint because when we tithe we get things back in return. Doesn't mean money, but other things.
