10:29They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and
into an oath, to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of
God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and
his judgments and his statutes;
(10:29-30) "They ... entered into a curse, and
into an oath ... that we would not give our daughters unto the people of the land, not
take their daughters for our sons."
And that we would not give our daughters unto the people of the land, not
take their daughters for our sons:
And if the people of the land bring ware or any victuals on the sabbath

For the shewbread, and for the continual meat offering, and for the
continual burnt offering, of the sabbaths, of the new moons, for the set

10:34And we cast the lots among the priests, the Levites, and the people, for
the wood offering, to bring it into the house of our God, after the houses

the LORD our God, as it is written in the law:
(10:34) "And we cast the lots among the priests, the Levites, and the people, for
the wood offering, to bring it into the house of our God." Is gambling condemned by the bible?

fruit of all trees, year by year, unto the house of the LORD:
Also the firstborn of our sons, and of our cattle, as it is written in the
law, and the firstlings of our herds and of our flocks, to bring to the
house of our God, unto the priests that minister in the house of our God:
And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings,
and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests,
to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto
the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities
of our tillage.
And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the
Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes
unto the house of our God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.
For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the
offering of the corn, of the new wine, and the oil, unto the chambers, where
are the vessels of the sanctuary, and the priests that minister, and the
porters, and the singers: and we will not forsake the house of our God.
