Deuteronomy 26:1-11

CEB 1 Once you have entered the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and you take possession of it and are settled there, NRS 1 When you have come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, and you possess it, and settle in it, CEB 2 take some of the early produce of the fertile ground that you have harvested from the land the LORD your God is giving you, and put it in a basket. Then go to the location the LORD your God selects for his name to reside. NRS 2 you shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you harvest from the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and you shall put it in a basket and go to the place that the Lord your God will choose as a dwelling for his name. CEB 3 Go to the priest who is in office at that time and say to him: "I am declaring right now before the LORD my God that I have indeed arrived in the land the LORD swore to our ancestors to give us." NRS 3 You shall go to the priest who is in office at that time, and say to him, "Today I declare to the Lord your God that I have come into the land that the Lord swore to our ancestors to give us." CEB 4 The priest will then take the basket from you and place it before the LORD your God's altar. NRS 4 When the priest takes the basket from your hand and sets it down before the altar of the Lord your God, CEB 5 Then you should solemnly state before the LORD your God: "My father was a starving Aramean. He went down to Egypt, living as an immigrant there with few family members, but that is where he became a great nation, mighty and numerous. NRS 5 you shall make this response before the Lord your God: "A wandering Aramean was my ancestor; he went down into Egypt and lived there as an alien, few in number, and there he became a great nation, mighty and populous. CEB 6 The Egyptians treated us terribly, oppressing us and forcing hard labor on us. NRS 6 When the Egyptians treated us harshly and afflicted us, by imposing hard labor on us, CEB 7 So we cried out for help to the LORD, our ancestors' God. The LORD heard our call. God saw our misery, our trouble, and our oppression. NRS 7 we cried to the Lord, the God of our ancestors; the Lord heard our voice and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression. CEB 8 The LORD brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, with awesome power, and with signs and wonders. NRS 8 The Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with a terrifying display of power, and with signs and wonders; CEB 9 He brought us to this place and gave us this land—a land full of milk and honey. NRS 9 and he brought us into this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. CEB 10 So now I am bringing the early produce of the fertile ground that you, LORD, have given me." Set the produce before the LORD your God, bowing down before the LORD your God. NRS 10 So now I bring the first of the fruit of the ground that you, O Lord, have given me." You shall set it down before the Lord your God and bow down before the Lord your God. CEB 11 Then celebrate all the good things the LORD your God has done for you and your family—each one of you along with the Levites and the immigrants who are among you. NRS 11 Then you, together with the Levites and the aliens who reside among you, shall celebrate with all the bounty that the Lord your God has given to you and to your house.
