8 “You shall not do at all what we are doing here today, every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes; 9 for you have not as yet come to athe resting place and the binheritance which the Lord your God is giving you. 10 When you cross the Jordan and live in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to inherit, and aHe gives you rest from all your enemies around you so that you live in security, 11 athen it shall come about that the place in which the Lord your God will choose for His name to dwell, there you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the 1contribution of your hand, and all your choice votive offerings which you will vow to the Lord. 12 And you shall arejoice before the Lord your God, you and your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the bLevite who is within your gates, since che has no portion or inheritance with you.

13 aBe careful that you do not offer your burnt offerings in every cultic place you see, 14 but in the place which the Lord chooses in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you.
