Deuteronomy 26:1 When thou art come into the land whyche the Lord thy God geueth the to enheret and hast enioyed it and dwellest therin: Deuteronomy 26:2 take of the first of al the frute of the erthe, whych thou hast brought in out of the lande that the Lorde thy GOD geueth the and put it in a maunde and go vnto the place which the Lorde thy GOD shall chose to make hys name dwell there.
