12:8 You must not do like we are doing here today, with everyone 1 doing what seems best to him, 12:9 for you have not yet come to the final stop 2 and inheritance the Lord your God is giving you. 12:10 When you do go across the Jordan River 3 and settle in the land he 4 is granting you as an inheritance and you find relief from all the enemies who surround you, you will live in safety. 5 12:11 Then you must come to the place the Lord your God chooses for his name to reside, bringing 6 everything I am commanding you – your burnt offerings, sacrifices, tithes, the personal offerings you have prepared, 7 and all your choice votive offerings which you devote to him. 8
