Bible: Deuteronomy 12:10-14

12:10 When you do go across the Jordan River 1  and settle in the land he 2  is granting you as an inheritance and you find relief from all the enemies who surround you, you will live in safety. 3  12:11 Then you must come to the place the Lord your God chooses for his name to reside, bringing 4  everything I am commanding you – your burnt offerings, sacrifices, tithes, the personal offerings you have prepared, 5  and all your choice votive offerings which you devote to him. 6  12:12 You shall rejoice in the presence of the Lord your God, along with your sons, daughters, male and female servants, and the Levites in your villages 7  (since they have no allotment or inheritance with you). 8  12:13 Make sure you do not offer burnt offerings in any place you wish, 12:14 for you may do so 9  only in the place the Lord chooses in one of your tribal areas – there you may do everything I am commanding you. 10
