This essay represents an initial attempt to provide a comprehensive account of the systems of taxation described and/or mandated in the Hebrew Bible for various periods in ancient Israel. Beyond this preliminary descriptive task, a concentration here is upon the ethical evaluation of these taxation systems-evaluations both according to voices within the Hebrew Bible and according to the general criteria of freedom, equity, and distributive justice.
