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;
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.
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;
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.
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;
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.
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.
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;
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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◦.
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.
