Deuteronomy 26:1   "Then it shall be, when you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you as an inheritance, and you possess it and live in it,
   
Deuteronomy 26:2   that you shall take some of the first of all the produce of the ground which you bring in from your land that the LORD your God gives you, and you shall put it in a basket and go to the place where the LORD your God chooses to establish His name.
   
Deuteronomy 26:3   You shall go to the priest who is in office at that time and say to him, 'I declare this day to the LORD my God that I have entered the land which the LORD swore to our fathers to give us.'
   
Deuteronomy 26:4   Then the priest shall take the basket from your hand and set it down before the altar of the LORD your God.
   
Deuteronomy 26:5   You shall answer and say before the LORD your God, 'My father was a wandering Aramean, and he went down to Egypt and sojourned there, few in number; but there he became a great, mighty and populous nation.
   
Deuteronomy 26:6   And the Egyptians treated us harshly and afflicted us, and imposed hard labor on us.
   
Deuteronomy 26:7   Then we cried to the LORD, the God of our fathers, and the LORD heard our voice and saw our affliction and our toil and our oppression;
   
Deuteronomy 26:8   and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with great terror and with signs and wonders;
   
Deuteronomy 26:9   and He has brought us to this place and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
   
Deuteronomy 26:10   Now behold, I have brought the first of the produce of the ground which You, O LORD have given me.' And you shall set it down before the LORD your God, and worship before the LORD your God;
   
Deuteronomy 26:11   and you and the Levite and the alien who is among you shall rejoice in all the good which the LORD your God has given you and your household.
   
Deuteronomy 26:12   "When you have finished paying all the tithe of your increase in the third year, the year of tithing, then you shall give it to the Levite, to the stranger, to the orphan and to the widow, that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.
   
Deuteronomy 26:13   You shall say before the LORD your God, 'I have removed the sacred portion from my house, and also have given it to the Levite and the alien, the orphan and the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed or forgotten any of Your commandments.
   
Deuteronomy 26:14   I have not eaten of it while mourning, nor have I removed any of it while I was unclean, nor offered any of it to the dead. I have listened to the voice of the LORD my God; I have done according to all that You have commanded me.
   
Deuteronomy 26:15   Look down from Your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel, and the ground which You have given us, a land flowing with milk and honey, as You swore to our fathers.'
   
Deuteronomy 26:16   "This day the LORD your God commands you to do these statutes and ordinances. You shall therefore be careful to do them with all your heart and with all your soul.
   
Deuteronomy 26:17   You have today declared the LORD to be your God, and that you would walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments and His ordinances, and listen to His voice.
   
Deuteronomy 26:18   The LORD has today declared you to be His people, a treasured possession, as He promised you, and that you should keep all His commandments;
   
Deuteronomy 26:19   and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a consecrated people to the LORD your God, as He has spoken."
