Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Deuteronomy 12

Monuments of idolatry are to be destroyed.

Deuteronomy 12:1 These, are the statutes and the regulations which ye must observe to do, in the land which Yahweh the God of thy fathers hath given unto thee, to possess it,—all the days that ye are living upon the soil: Deuteronomy 12:2 Ye must, utterly destroy, all the places, where the nations whom ye are dispossessing have served their gods,—Upon the high mountains, And upon the hills, And under every green tree; Deuteronomy 12:3 And ye must tear down their altars, And break in pieces their pillars, And, their sacred stems, must ye consume with fire, And, the carved images of their gods, must ye fell to the ground,—And destroy their name out of that place. Deuteronomy 12:4 Ye must not do thus unto Yahweh your God;

The place of God's service is to be kept.

Deuteronomy 12:5 but, unto the place, which Yahweh your God shall choose, out of all your tribes, to put his name there,—as his habitation, shall ye ask your way, and come in thither; Deuteronomy 12:6 and bring in thither your ascending-offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the heave-offering of your hand,—and your vow-offerings, and your freewill-offerings, and the firstlings of your herd, and of your flock; Deuteronomy 12:7 and shall eat there, before Yahweh your God, and rejoice in all whereunto ye are putting your hand, ye, and your households,—wherewith Yahweh thy God hath blessed thee. Deuteronomy 12:8 Ye must not do according to all that we are doing here, today,—every man, whatsoever is right in his own eyes. Deuteronomy 12:9 Because ye have not entered, as yet,—into the resting-place and into the inheritance, which Yahweh thy God is giving unto thee. Deuteronomy 12:10 But, when ye shall pass over the Jordan, and settle down in the land which, Yahweh your God, is causing you to inherit,—and he shall give you rest from all your enemies round about, and ye shall dwell securely, Deuteronomy 12:11 then shall it be, that, unto the place which Yahweh your God shall choose, to make a habitation for his name there, thither, shall ye bring in all that I am commanding you,—your ascending-offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave-offering of your hand, and all your chosen vow-offerings which ye shall vow unto Yahweh. Deuteronomy 12:12 So shall ye rejoice before Yahweh your God, Ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your servants, and your handmaids,—and the Levite that is within your gates, forasmuch as he hath neither portion nor inheritance with you. Deuteronomy 12:13 Take heed to thyself, lest thou cause thine ascending-sacrifice to go up in just any place which thou shalt see; Deuteronomy 12:14 but, in the place which Yahweh shall choose in one of thy tribes, there, shalt thou cause thine ascending-sacrifice to go up, and, there, shalt thou do all that I am commanding thee. Deuteronomy 12:15 Howbeit, of anything thy soul desireth, mayest thou sacrifice and so eat flesh—according to the blessing of Yahweh thy God which he hath bestowed upon thee, in all thy gates, the unclean and the clean, may eat thereof,—as the gazelle and as the hart.

Blood is forbidden.

Deuteronomy 12:16 Howbeit, the blood, shall ye not eat,—upon the earth, shalt thou pour it out, like water.

Holy things must be eaten in the holy place.

Deuteronomy 12:17 Thou mayest not eat within thy gates, the tithe of thy corn, or of thy new wine, or of thine oil, or the firstlings of thy herd, or of thy flock,—nor any of thy vow-offerings which thou shalt vow, nor thy freewill-offerings, nor the heave-offering of thy hand; Deuteronomy 12:18 but, before Yahweh thy God, shalt thou eat it, in the place which Yahweh thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy servant and thy handmaid, and the Levite who is within thy gates,—so shalt thou rejoice before Yahweh thy God, in all whereunto thou puttest thy hand.

The Levite is not to be forsaken.

Deuteronomy 12:19 Take heed to thyself, lest thou forsake the Levite,—all thy days, upon thy soil.

Holy things must be eaten in the holy place.

Deuteronomy 12:20 When Yahweh thy God shall enlarge thy boundary—as he hath spoken unto thee—and thou shalt say, I would eat flesh, because thy soul desireth to eat flesh, of whatsoever thy soul desireth, mayest thou eat flesh. Deuteronomy 12:21 When the place which Yahweh thy God shall choose to put his name there, shall be, too far for thee, then shalt thou sacrifice of thy herd or of thy flock, which Yahweh hath given unto thee, as I have commanded thee,—and shalt eat, within thine own gates, of whatsoever thy soul desireth. Deuteronomy 12:22 Even as the gazelle and the hart is eaten, so, shalt thou eat it,—the unclean and the clean, alike shall eat it.

Blood is forbidden.

Deuteronomy 12:23 Howbeit firmly refrain from eating the blood; for, the blood, is the life,—therefore must thou not eat the life with the flesh. Deuteronomy 12:24 Thou shalt not eat it,—upon the earth, shalt thou pour it out, like water. Deuteronomy 12:25 Thou shalt not eat it,—that is may be well with thee, and with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in the eyes of Yahweh.

Holy things must be eaten in the holy place.

Deuteronomy 12:26 Howbeit, thy holy things which thou shalt have, and thy vow-offerings, shalt thou take and come in, unto the place which Yahweh shall choose; Deuteronomy 12:27 and shalt offer thine ascending-sacrifices, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of Yahweh thy God,—and, the blood of thine [other] sacrifices, shall be poured out upon the altar of Yahweh thy God, and then, the flesh, shalt thou eat. Deuteronomy 12:28 Observe and hear all these things which I am commanding thee,—that it may be well with thee, and with thy children after thee,—unto times age-abiding, so long as thou shalt do that which is pleasing and right in the eyes of Yahweh thy God.

Idolatry is not to be enquired after.

Deuteronomy 12:29 When Yahweh thy God shall cut off from before thee, the nations whom thou art going in to dispossess,—and thou do dispossess them, and dwell in their land, Deuteronomy 12:30 take heed to thyself, lest thou be thrust after them, after they have been destroyed from before thee,—and lest thou enquire after their gods, saying—In what manner, did these nations serve their gods, that, I too, may do likewise? Deuteronomy 12:31 Thou shalt not do likewise unto Yahweh thy God,—for, everything that is an abomination unto Yahweh, which he doth hate, have they done unto their gods, for, even their sons and their daughters, do they consume with fire unto their gods. Deuteronomy 12:32 Whatsoever be the thing which I am commanding you, the same, shall ye observe to do,—thou shalt neither add thereunto, nor take away therefrom.
