- tithe: [OE] Originally, tithe meant simply a ‘tenth’ – a sense that has revived somewhat in recent years. The specific application to a ‘ten per-cent levy on annual production, paid to the Church’ dates from the 12th century. It comes from Old English tēotha ‘tenth’ (the modern English form tenth arose in the 12th century, through the influence of ten).

Retained in ecclesiastical sense while the form was replaced in ordinal use by tenth.
