26 3 The offering of the firstfruits. 5 What they must protest when they offer them. 12 The [tithe] of the first year. 13 Their protestation in offering it. 19 To what honor God preferreth them which acknowledge him to be their Lord.
1 Also when thou shalt come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for inheritance, and shalt possess it, and dwell therein,
2 [a]Then shalt thou take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, and bring it out of the land that the Lord thy God giveth thee, and put it in a basket, and go unto the place which the Lord thy God shall choose, to [b]place his name there.
3 And thou shalt come unto the Priest, that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I acknowledge this day unto the Lord thy God, that I am come unto the country which the Lord sware unto our fathers for to give us.
Deuteronomy 26:2By this ceremony they acknowledged that they received the land of Canaan as a free gift of God.
