Exodus on Tax Rates?

Well, probably the Holy Spirit wasn't referring to the United States tax code in Exodus 30.13-15, but....

Here's the passage (ESV):


"Each one who is numbered in the census shall give this: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary...everyone who is numbered in the census, from twenty years old and upward, shall give the Lord's offering. The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when you give the Lord's offering to make atonement for your lives."
