comment Why was Barnabas singled out for mention in Acts 4?
@BradWerth The other explanation is that language changes.

@BradWerth Yeah, but it's still labelled as "tithing".

@Wikis Nowadays, the word "tithing" no longer means 10% of the income. It means any donation to the church. But then, we're talking about earlier times, which may have been different. So, I would say gives.

So, it highlights a contrast between a man of God (one who tithes) and Ananias (one who keeps for himself and lies).

After rereading the question's description, it is unclear why you put Maimonides there. Does Maimonides believe that the said biblical verses are referring to King David or Messiah, or does Maimonides believe that those verses have double meaning?

But Rabbi Moses ben Maimon is a medieval Jewish rabbi and philosopher. The New International Version is from the 20th century. There may be differences in bibles in that the chapters and verses may be labelled differently or books are or are not part of the canon. I think it's best to retrieve the exact quote from Maimonides.
