\\INTRODUCTION TO DEUTERONOMY 12\\

In this chapter orders are given to destroy all altars, pillars,
groves, and images, made for the worship of idols in the land of
Canaan, \\#De 12:1-3\\ and to bring all sacrifices and holy things
unto the place which the Lord should choose for his habitation, and
not do as they then did, not being come to their rest,
\\#De 12:4-14\\, flesh for their common food might be killed and eaten in
their own houses, provided they did not eat the blood, but poured it
out upon the earth, \\#De 12:15-25\\, tithes, vows, and freewill
offerings, were to be eaten in the holy place, \\#De 12:17-19\\ and
burnt offerings to be offered on the altar of the Lord and the blood
of them to be poured out upon the altar, \\#De 12:26-28\\, all which
they were carefully to observe, \\#De 12:29\\, and they are cautioned
against idolatry, and inquiring after the manner of it, as practised
by the old inhabitants of the land, and introducing their customs
into the service of God, \\#De 12:30-32\\.
