Rejoice in the Lord - Deuteronomy 26

And it shall be, when thou art come in unto the  land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an  inheritance, and possessest it, and dwellest therein; Deuteronomy 26:1 

Deuteronomy 26:2  That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth,  which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God  giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto  the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his  name there. 

Deuteronomy 26:3 And thou shalt go unto the priest that  shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day  unto the LORD thy God, that I am come unto the country  which the LORD sware unto our fathers for to give us.   

Deuteronomy 26:4 And the priest shall take the basket out of thine  hand, and set it down before the altar of the LORD thy God.  

Deuteronomy 26:5 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy  God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went  down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and  became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous: 

Deuteronomy 26:6  And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and  laid upon us hard bondage: 

Deuteronomy 26:7 And when we cried unto  the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice,  and looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our  oppression: 

Deuteronomy 26:8 And the LORD brought us forth out of  Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm,  and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with  wonders: 

Deuteronomy 26:9 And he hath brought us into this place, and  hath given us this land, even a land that floweth with milk  and honey. 

Deuteronomy 26:10 And now, behold, I have brought the  firstfruits of the land, which thou, O LORD, hast given me.  And thou shalt set it before the LORD thy God, and worship  before the LORD thy God: 

Deuteronomy 26:11 And thou shalt rejoice  in every good thing which the LORD thy God hath given  unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and  the stranger that is among you.  

Deuteronomy 26:12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the  tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of  tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the  fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy  gates, and be filled; 

Deuteronomy 26:13 Then thou shalt say before the  LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things  out of mine house, and also have given them unto the  Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the  widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast  commanded me: I have not transgressed thy  commandments, neither have I forgotten them: 

Deuteronomy 26:14 I  have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken  away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given  ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the  voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to  all that thou hast commanded me. 

Deuteronomy 26:15 Look down from  thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy people  Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou  swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and  honey.  

Deuteronomy 26:16 This day the LORD thy God hath commanded  thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore  keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.  

Deuteronomy 26:17 Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy  God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and  his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto  his voice: 

Deuteronomy 26:18 And the LORD hath avouched thee this  day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and  that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; 

Deuteronomy 26:19  And to make thee high above all nations which he hath  made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou  mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he  hath spoken.  KJV
