← Deuteronomy 11   Deuteronomy 13 →         

1 These are the statutes and judgments, which you shall observe to do in the land, which Jehovah God of thy fathers gives thee to possess it, all the days that you are alive upon the ground.

2 Making·​·to·​·perish you shall make· all the places ·perish, wherein the nations, which you shall dispossess, served their gods, on the exalted mountains, and on the hills, and under every green tree;

3 and you shall tear·​·down their altars, and break their statues, and burn·​·up their groves with fire; and you shall hew·​·down the graven images of their gods, and make· their names ·perish from that place.

4 You shall not do so to Jehovah your God.

5 But to the place which Jehovah your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put His name there, even to His Habitation you shall inquire, and thither thou shalt come;

6 and thither you shall bring your burnt·​·offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and upliftings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks;

7 and there you shall eat before Jehovah your God, and you shall be·​·glad in all that you put·​·forth your hand to, you and your houses, in which Jehovah thy God has blessed thee.

8 You shall not do after all that we do here today, each man, all that is upright in his own eyes.

9 For you have not yet come to rest and to the inheritance, which Jehovah thy God gives thee.

10 And you shall cross·​·over the Jordan, and dwell in the land which Jehovah your God causes you to inherit; and He shall give you rest from all your enemies from all around you, and you shall dwell securely.

11 And there shall be a place which Jehovah your God shall choose to cause His name to abide there; thither you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt·​·offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the uplifting of your hand, and all the choice of your vows which you vow to Jehovah;

12 and you shall be·​·glad before Jehovah your God, you, and your sons, and your daughters, and your servants, and your maidservants, and the Levite that is within your gates; forasmuch as he has no part nor inheritance with you.

13 Take·​·heed to thyself lest thou offer·​·up thy burnt·​·offerings in every place that thou seest;

14 but in the place which Jehovah shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou shalt offer up thy burnt·​·offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee.

15 Only with all the longing of thy soul thou mayest sacrifice and eat flesh, according to the blessing of Jehovah thy God, which He has given thee in all thy gates; the unclean and the clean may eat of it, as of the roebuck, and as of the stag.

16 Only the blood you shall not eat; you shall spill it on the earth as water.

17 Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy grain, or of thy must*, or of thine olive·​·oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or uplifting of thy hand;

18 but thou must eat them before Jehovah thy God in the place which Jehovah thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy servant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite who is within thy gates; and thou shalt be·​·glad before Jehovah thy God in all that thou puttest·​·forth thy hands.

19 Take·​·heed to thyself lest thou forsake the Levite all thy days on thy ground.

20 When Jehovah thy God shall enlarge thy border, as He has spoken to thee, and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, because thy soul longs to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh with all the longing of thy soul.

21 If the place which Jehovah thy God has chosen to set His name there be· too ·far from thee, then thou shalt sacrifice from thy herd and from thy flock, which Jehovah has given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates with all the longing of thy soul.

22 Surely as one eats the roebuck and the stag, so thou shalt eat them; the unclean and the clean shall eat of them together.

23 Only be·​·firm not to eat the blood; for the blood, it is the soul; and thou shalt not eat the soul with the flesh.

24 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt spill it on the earth as water.

25 Thou shalt not eat it; so·​·that it may be·​·good for thee, and for thy sons after thee, for thou shalt do what is upright in the eyes of Jehovah.

26 Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou shalt carry, and come to the place which Jehovah shall choose;

27 and thou shalt make thy burnt·​·offerings, the flesh and the blood, on the altar of Jehovah thy God; and the blood of thy sacrifices shall be spilled on the altar of Jehovah thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh.

28 Keep and hear all these words which I command thee, so·​·that it may be·​·good for thee, and for thy sons after thee even·​·to eternity, when thou doest what is good and upright in the eyes of Jehovah thy God.

29 When Jehovah thy God shall cut·​·off the nations from before thee, whither thou comest to possess them, and thou shalt possess them, and dwell in their land;

30 take·​·heed for thyself, lest thou be ensnared following after them, after they be blotted·​·out from before thee; and lest thou inquire as·​·to their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? and so will I do, even I.

31 Thou shalt not do so to Jehovah thy God; for every abomination to Jehovah, which He hates, have they done to their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

32 13:1 Every word that I command you, thou shalt observe to do it; thou shalt not add to it, and thou shalt not diminish from it.

Explanation of Deuteronomy 12      

Napsal(a) Alexander Payne

Verses 1-16. On the rejection of evil and appropriation of good; the Lord's Divine Humanity is the test of all real good.

Verses 17-19. The genuine good from the Lord is not to be attributed to self.

Verses 20-28. Good may be acquired by self-effort, but must be kept distinct from that flowing from the Lord.

Verses 29-32. A caution against being again enticed by evil loves.

Swedenborg
