If the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen to put his
name be too far from thee
Or rather "for" F8, or "seeing" the place will be too far from thee; for it is allowed before that they might kill and eat flesh for common food in their gates, ( Deuteronomy 12:15 )
then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock;
of thy oxen and of thy sheep, creatures used in sacrifice; but this was no bar to the use of them for common food also:
which the Lord hath given thee, as I have commanded thee;
( Deuteronomy 12:15 )
and thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after;
flesh of any sort, lawful to be eaten.
F8 (yk) "cum", Pagninus, Montanus.
