choose to place his name there.
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

given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the Levite, and the
stranger that is among you.
26:12When 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;
(26:12) "When thou hast ... given it unto the Levite,
the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled."
Take care of those who need help.
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

commandments, neither have I forgotten them.
26:14I 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

(26:14) "I have not ... given ought thereof for the dead."
Don't feed dead people.

Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our
fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey.
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.
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:
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;
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.
