Deuteronomy 12: 5,6,9-11,13,14,18,20,21 PDF Print E-mail

5 Instead, you shall resort to the place which the LORD,
your God, chooses out of all your tribes and designates as his
dwelling
6 and there you shall bring your holocausts and
sacrifices, your tithes and personal contributions, your votive
and freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and
flocks.

9 since you have not yet reached your resting place, the
heritage which the LORD, your God, will give you.
10 But after you have crossed the Jordan and dwell in the
land which the LORD, your God, is giving you as a heritage,
when he has given you rest from all your enemies round about
and you live there in security,
11 then to the place which the LORD, your God, chooses as
the dwelling place for his name you shall bring all the
offerings I command you: your holocausts and sacrifices, your
tithes and personal contributions, and every special offering
you have vowed to the LORD.

13 Take care not to offer up your holocausts in any place
you fancy,
14 but offer them up in the place which the LORD chooses
from among your tribes; there you shall make whatever offerings
I enjoin upon you.

18 These you must eat before the LORD, your God, in the
place he chooses, along with your son and daughter, your male
and female slave, and the Levite who belongs to your community;
and there, before the LORD, you shall make merry over all your
undertakings.

20 "After the LORD, your God, has enlarged your
territory, as he promised you, when you wish meat for food, you
may eat it at will, to your heart's desire;

21 and if the place which the LORD, your God, chooses for
the abode of his name is too far, you may slaughter in the
manner I have told you any of your herd or flock that the LORD
has given you, and eat it to your heart's desire in your own
community.
