Deuteronomy 12:18 Deuteronomy12:32

18 But you shall eat them before Jehovah your God in the place which Jehovah your God will choose, you and your son and daughter, and your male servant and female servant, and the Levite who is within your gates; and you shall rejoice before Jehovah your God in all your undertakings.

19 Be careful that you do not forsake the Levite all your days upon the earth.

20 When Jehovah your God enlarges your territory, as He has promised you, and you say, I will eat meat, because your soul desires to eat meat, you may eat meat according to all that your soul desires.

21 If the place where Jehovah your God will choose to put His name is too far away from you, you may slaughter from your herd and from your flock, which Jehovah has given you, as I have commanded you; and you may eat within your gates according to all that your soul de- sires;

22 Indeed, as the gazelle and the deer are eaten, so you may eat it; the unclean and the clean may eat it alike.

23 But make sure that you do not eat the blood; for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh.

24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it out upon the earth like water.

25 You shall not eat it, so that it may go well with you and with your children after you, when you do what is right in the sight of Jehovah.

26 But you shall take your holy things which you have and your vows, and go to the place which Jehovah will choose;

27 And you shall offer your burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of Jehovah your God; and the blood of your sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of Jehovah your God, and you shall eat the flesh.

28 Keep and listen to all these words which I am commanding you so that it may go well with you and with your children after you forever, for you will be doing what is good and right in the sight of Jehovah your God.

29 When Jehovah your God cuts off the nations before you, which you are entering to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land,

30 Be careful that you are not ensnared in following them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not seek after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods, so that I also may do likewise?

31 You shall not do so for Jehovah your God, for every abomination to Jehovah, which He hates, they have done to their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burned with fire to their gods.

32 The whole thing that I am commanding you, you shall be certain to do; you shall not add to it, nor shall you take away from it.
