1 “And it shall be, when you come into the land which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim is giving you as an inheritance, and you possess it and dwell in it,

2 that you shall take some of the first of all the fruits of the land which you bring from your land that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim is giving you, and shall put it in a basket and go to the place where 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell there.

3 “And you shall come to the one who is kohĕn in those days, and say to him, ‘I shall declare today to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim that I have come to the land which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 swore to our fathers to give us.’

4 “And the kohĕn shall take the basket from your hand and place it before the altar of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim.

5 “And you shall answer and say before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim, ‘My father was a perishing Aramean, and he went down to Mitsrayim and sojourned there with few men. And there he became a nation, great, mighty, and numerous.

6 ‘But the Mitsrites did evil to us, and afflicted us, and imposed hard labour on us.

7 ‘Then we cried out to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Elohim of our fathers, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 heard our voice and saw our affliction and our toil and our oppression.

8 ‘And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 brought us out of Mitsrayim with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm, with great reverence and with signs and wonders.

9 ‘And He brought us to this place and has given us this land, “a land flowing with milk and honey.”

10 ‘And now, see, I have brought the first-fruits of the land which You, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, have given me.’ Then you shall place it before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim, and bow down before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim,

11 and shall rejoice in all the good which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim has given to you and your house, you and the Lĕwite and the stranger who is among you.

12 “When you have completed tithing all the tithe of your increase in the third year, which is the year of tithing, and have given it to the Lĕwite, to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, and they have eaten within your gates and have been satisfied,

13 then you shall say before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim, ‘I have put away the qodesh portion from my house, and also have given it to the Lĕwite, and to the stranger, and to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all Your Command which You have commanded me. I have not transgressed Your Commands, nor have I forgotten.

14 ‘I have not eaten any of it when in mourning, nor have I removed any of it for any unclean use, nor given any of it for the dead. I have obeyed the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Elohim, I have done according to all that You have commanded me.

15 ‘Look from Your qodesh dwelling place, from the shamayim, and baraḵ Your people Yisra’ĕl and the land which You have given us, as You swore to our fathers, “a land flowing with milk and honey.” ’

16 “Today 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim is commanding you to do these Laws and Right-Rulings. And you shall guard and do them with all your heart and with all your being.

17 “You have today caused 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to proclaim to be your Elohim, and to walk in His Ways and guard His Laws, and His Commands, and His Right-Rulings, and to obey His voice.

18 “And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has caused you to proclaim today to be His people, a treasured possession, as He has spoken to you, and to guard all His Commands,

19 so as to make you high above all nations which He has made, for a praise, and for a name, and for esteem, and for you to be a qodesh people to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim, as He has spoken.”
