Deuteronomy 12:11 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 12:11

Then there shall be a place
Fixed and settled, and will be known to be the place:

which the Lord your God shall choose, to cause his name to dwell there:
where he himself would dwell, and where his name would be called, and he would be worshipped:

thither shall ye bring all that I command you, your burnt offerings and
your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offerings of your hands;
of which (See Gill on Deuteronomy 12:6)

and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the Lord;
or, "the choice of your vows" F7; which, as Jarchi observes, was brought of their choicest things, as they ought to be; see ( Malachi 1:14 ) .

Deuteronomy 12:11 In-Context

9 for you have not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance that the LORD your God is giving you.
10 But when you go over the Jordan and live in the land that the LORD your God is giving you to inherit, and when he gives you rest from all your enemies around, so that you live in safety,
11 then to the place that the LORD your God will choose, to make his name dwell there, there you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the contribution that you present, and all your finest vow offerings that you vow to the LORD.
12 And you shall rejoice before the LORD your God, you and your sons and your daughters, your male servants and your female servants, and the Levite that is within your towns, since he has no portion or inheritance with you.
13 Take care that you do not offer your burnt offerings at any place that you see,
