Deuteronomy 12
NMV
12
1These [are] the statutes and judgments, which you2f shall observe to do in the land, which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of youi fathers gives youi to possess it, all the days that you2f live upon the earth.
2You2f shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which you2f shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
3And you2f shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and you2f shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.
4You2f shall not do so unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
5But unto the place which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, [even] unto his habitation shall you2f seek, and there youi shall come:
6And there you2f shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:
7And there you2f shall eat before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and you2f shall rejoice in all that you2f put your hand unto, you2f and your households, wherein the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] has Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) youi.
8You2f shall not do after all [the things] that we do here this day, every man whatsoever [is] right in his own eyes.
9For you2f are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] gives you.
10But [when] you2f go over Yarden [Descender], and dwell in the land which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] gives you to inherit, and [when] he gives you rest from all your enemies round about, so that you2f dwell in safety;
11Then there shall be a place which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; there shall you2f bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which you2f vow unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate):
12And you2f shall rejoice before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], you2f, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Levi (Levite) [Joined to] that [is] within your gates; forasmuch as he has no part nor inheritance with you.
13Take heed to yourself that youi offer not youi burnt offerings in every place that youi see:
14But in the place which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall choose in one of youi tribes, there youi shall offer youi burnt offerings, and there youi shall do all that I command youi.
15Yet youi may kill and eat flesh in all youi gates, whatsoever youri soul lusts after, according to the blessing of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] which he has given youi: the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and as of the deer.
16Only you2f shall not eat the blood; you2f shall pour it upon the earth as water.
17youi may not eat within youi gates the tithe of youi corn, or of youi wine, or of youri oil, or the firstlings of youri herds or of youri flock, nor any of youi vows which youi vow, nor youri freewill offerings, or heave offering of youri hand:
18But youi must eat them before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] in the place which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] shall choose, youi, and youi son, and youi daughter, and youi manservant, and youi maidservant, and the Levi (Levite) [Joined to] that [is] within youi gates: and youi shall rejoice before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] in all that youi put youri hands unto.
19Take heed to yourself that youi forsake not the Levi (Levite) [Joined to] as long as youi live upon the earth.
20When the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] shall enlarge youri border, as he has promised youi, and youi shall say, I will eat flesh, because youri soul longs to eat flesh; youi may eat flesh, whatsoever youi soul lusts after.
21If the place which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] has chosen to put his name there be too far from youi, then youi shall kill of youi herd and of youi flock, which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has given youi, as I have commanded youi, and youi shall eat in youi gates whatsoever youi soul lusts after.
22Even as the roebuck and the deer is eaten, so youi shall eat them: the unclean and the clean shall eat [of] them alike.
23Only be sure that youi eat not the blood: for the blood [is] the life; and youi may not eat the life with the flesh.
24youi shall not eat it; youi shall pour it upon the earth as water.
25youi shall not eat it; that it may go well with youi, and with youi children after youi, when youi shall do [that which is] right in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
26Only youi holy things which youi have, and youi vows, youi shall take, and go unto the place which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall choose:
27And youi shall offer youi burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: and the blood of youi sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and youi shall eat the flesh.
28Observe and hear all these words which I command youi, that it may go well with youi, and with youi children after youi forever, when youi do [that which is] good and right in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
29When the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] shall cut off the nations from before youi, to which youi go to possess them, and youi succeed them, and dwell in their land;
30Take heed to yourself that youi be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before youi; and that youi enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
31youi shall not do so unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: for every abomination to the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), which he hates, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
32What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: youi shall not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
