Deuteronomy 26:1-8

1 "After you have occupied the land that the Lord your God is giving you and have settled there,
2 each of you must place in a basket the first part of each crop that you harvest and you must take it with you to the one place of worship. 1
3 Go to the priest in charge at that time and say to him, "I now acknowledge to the Lord my God that I have entered the land that he promised our ancestors to give us.'
4 "The priest will take the basket from you and place it before the altar of the Lord your God.
5 Then, in the Lord's presence you will recite these words: "My ancestor was a wandering Aramean, who took his family to Egypt to live. They were few in number when they went there, but they became a large and powerful nation.
6 The Egyptians treated us harshly and forced us to work as slaves.
7 Then we cried out for help to the Lord, the God of our ancestors. He heard us and saw our suffering, hardship, and misery.
8 By his great power and strength he rescued us from Egypt. He worked miracles and wonders, and caused terrifying things to happen.
