apodekatoo

ἀποδεκατοῦτε [3 verses] (verb 2nd pl pres ind act) "Pay tithe" is apodekatoo, which means to "tithe," "to take a tenth of," or "to pay a tithe." It is only used in the NT and is a combination of two Greek words "apo" ("from") and "dekatoo," ("to take a tenth").  - A made-up koined word is translated as "ye pay tithes." It appears only in the Gospels and an uncommon one for Jesus. It reverses the meaning of the normal word that means "to take a tenth" by adding the word "from" to it as a prefix. The sense is, "I take a tenth from [myself]."
