But there's also sacrifices on a regular basis mandated sacrifices and that's not including the free will offerings that the jews were encouraged to give just as a baseline. The jews gave to god in one form or fashion or another thirty to forty percent so to to take a round number like ten percent and just to fix it to the offering is a really big problem now. We ran into an interesting problem in college because we were broke. We were poor. There was no income right. There was no no no more money coming in. We had we.
