Instead, turn to the place the Lord your God choosesj from all your tribes to put his name for his dwelling and go there. You are to bring there your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tenths and personal contributions,E your vow offerings and freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks. You will eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice with your household in everything you do,* because the Lord your God has blessed you.

“You are not to do as we are doing here today; everyone is doing whatever seems right in his own sight.k Indeed, you have not yet come into the resting placel and the inheritancem the Lord your God is giving you. 10 When you cross the Jordan and live in the land the Lord your God is giving you to inherit,n and he gives you rest from all the enemies around you and you live in security, 11 then the Lord your God will choose the place to have his name dwell.o Bring there everything I command you: your burnt offerings, sacrifices, offerings of the tenth, personal contributions,G and all your choice offerings you vow to the Lord. 12 You will rejoicep before the Lord your God—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female slaves, and the Levite who is within your city gates, since he has no portion or inheritance among you.q
