Deuteronomy 26 (WEBP)
 It shall be, when you have come in to the land which Yahweh your God gives you for an inheritance, possess it, and dwell in it,
 that you shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you shall bring in from your land that Yahweh your God gives you. You shall put it in a basket, and shall go to the place which Yahweh your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there.
 You shall come to the priest who shall be in those days, and tell him, “I profess today to Yahweh your God, that I have come to the land which Yahweh swore to our fathers to give us.”
 The priest shall take the basket out of your hand, and set it down before Yahweh your God’s altar.
 You shall answer and say before Yahweh your God, “My father§ was a Syrian ready to perish. He went down into Egypt, and lived there, few in number. There he became a great, mighty, and populous nation.
 The Egyptians mistreated us, afflicted us, and imposed hard labor on us.
 Then we cried to Yahweh, the God of our fathers. Yahweh heard our voice, and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression.
 Yahweh brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, with great terror, with signs, and with wonders;
 and he has brought us into this place, and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
 Now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruit of the ground, which you, Yahweh, have given me.” You shall set it down before Yahweh your God, and worship before Yahweh your God.
 You shall rejoice in all the good which Yahweh your God has given to you, and to your house, you, and the Levite, and the foreigner who is among you.
 When you have finished tithing all the tithe of your increase in the third year, which is the year of tithing, then you shall give it to the Levite, to the foreigner, to the fatherless, and to the widow, that they may eat within your gates and be filled.
 You shall say before Yahweh your God, “I have put away the holy things out of my house, and also have given them to the Levite, to the foreigner, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all your commandment which you have commanded me. I have not transgressed any of your commandments, neither have I forgotten them.
 I have not eaten of it in my mourning, neither have I removed any of it while I was unclean, nor given of it for the dead. I have listened to Yahweh my God’s voice. I have done according to all that you have commanded me.
 Look down from your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless your people Israel, and the ground which you have given us, as you swore to our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey.”
 Today Yahweh your God commands you to do these statutes and ordinances. You shall therefore keep and do them with all your heart and with all your soul.
 You have declared today that Yahweh is your God, and that you would walk in his ways, keep his statutes, his commandments, and his ordinances, and listen to his voice.
 Yahweh has declared today that you are a people for his own possession, as he has promised you, and that you should keep all his commandments.
 He will make you high above all nations that he has made, in praise, in name, and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to Yahweh your God, as he has spoken.

Deuteronomy 26 (KJVS)
 And it shall be, when thou [art] come in H935 (8799) unto the land H776 which the LORD H3068 thy God H430 giveth H5414 (8802) thee [for] an inheritance H5159, and possessest H3423 (8804) it, and dwellest H3427 (8804) therein;
 That thou shalt take H3947 (8804) of the first H7225 of all the fruit H6529 of the earth H127, which thou shalt bring H935 (8686) of thy land H776 that the LORD H3068 thy God H430 giveth H5414 (8802) thee, and shalt put H7760 (8804) [it] in a basket H2935, and shalt go H1980 (8804) unto the place H4725 which the LORD H3068 thy God H430 shall choose H977 (8799) to place H7931 (8763) his name H8034 there.
 And thou shalt go H935 (8804) unto the priest H3548 that shall be in those days H3117, and say H559 (8804) unto him, I profess H5046 (8689) this day H3117 unto the LORD H3068 thy God H430, that I am come H935 (8804) unto the country H776 which the LORD H3068 sware H7650 (8738) unto our fathers H1 for to give H5414 (8800) us.
 And the priest H3548 shall take H3947 (8804) the basket H2935 out of thine hand H3027, and set it down H3240 (8689) before H6440 the altar H4196 of the LORD H3068 thy God H430.
 And thou shalt speak H6030 (8804) and say H559 (8804) before H6440 the LORD H3068 thy God H430, A Syrian H761 ready to perish H6 (8802) [was] my father H1, and he went down H3381 (8799) into Egypt H4714, and sojourned H1481 (8799) there with H4962 a few H4592, and became there a nation H1471, great H1419, mighty H6099, and populous H7227:
 And the Egyptians H4713 evil entreated H7489 (8686) us, and afflicted H6031 (8762) us, and laid H5414 (8799) upon us hard H7186 bondage H5656:
 And when we cried H6817 (8799) unto the LORD H3068 God H430 of our fathers H1, the LORD H3068 heard H8085 (8799) our voice H6963, and looked H7200 (8799) on our affliction H6040, and our labour H5999, and our oppression H3906:
 And the LORD H3068 brought us forth H3318 (8686) out of Egypt H4714 with a mighty H2389 hand H3027, and with an outstretched H5186 (8803) arm H2220, and with great H1419 terribleness H4172, and with signs H226, and with wonders H4159:
 And he hath brought H935 (8686) us into this place H4725, and hath given H5414 (8799) us this land H776, [even] a land H776 that floweth H2100 (8802) with milk H2461 and honey H1706.
 And now, behold, I have brought H935 (8689) the firstfruits H6529 H7225 of the land H127, which thou, O LORD H3068, hast given H5414 (8804) me. And thou shalt set H3240 (8689) it before H6440 the LORD H3068 thy God H430, and worship H7812 (8694) before H6440 the LORD H3068 thy God H430:
 And thou shalt rejoice H8055 (8804) in every good H2896 [thing] which the LORD H3068 thy God H430 hath given H5414 (8804) unto thee, and unto thine house H1004, thou, and the Levite H3881, and the stranger H1616 that [is] among H7130 you.
 When thou hast made an end H3615 (8762) of tithing H6237 (8687) all the tithes H4643 of thine increase H8393 the third H7992 year H8141, [which is] the year H8141 of tithing H4643, and hast given H5414 (8804) [it] unto the Levite H3881, the stranger H1616, the fatherless H3490, and the widow H490, that they may eat H398 (8804) within thy gates H8179, and be filled H7646 (8804);
 Then thou shalt say H559 (8804) before H6440 the LORD H3068 thy God H430, I have brought away H1197 (8765) the hallowed things H6944 out of [mine] house H1004, and also have given H5414 (8804) them unto the Levite H3881, and unto the stranger H1616, to the fatherless H3490, and to the widow H490, according to all thy commandments H4687 which thou hast commanded H6680 (8765) me: I have not transgressed H5674 (8804) thy commandments H4687, neither have I forgotten H7911 (8804) [them]:
 I have not eaten H398 (8804) thereof in my mourning H205, neither have I taken away H1197 (8765) [ought] thereof for [any] unclean H2931 [use], nor given H5414 (8804) [ought] thereof for the dead H4191 (8801): [but] I have hearkened H8085 (8804) to the voice H6963 of the LORD H3068 my God H430, [and] have done H6213 (8804) according to all that thou hast commanded H6680 (8765) me.
 Look down H8259 (8685) from thy holy H6944 habitation H4583, from heaven H8064, and bless H1288 (8761) thy people H5971 Israel H3478, and the land H127 which thou hast given H5414 (8804) us, as thou swarest H7650 (8738) unto our fathers H1, a land H776 that floweth H2100 (8802) with milk H2461 and honey H1706.
 This day H3117 the LORD H3068 thy God H430 hath commanded H6680 (8764) thee to do H6213 (8800) these statutes H2706 and judgments H4941: thou shalt therefore keep H8104 (8804) and do H6213 (8804) them with all thine heart H3824, and with all thy soul H5315.
 Thou hast avouched H559 (8689) the LORD H3068 this day H3117 to be thy God H430, and to walk H3212 (8800) in his ways H1870, and to keep H8104 (8800) his statutes H2706, and his commandments H4687, and his judgments H4941, and to hearken H8085 (8800) unto his voice H6963:
 And the LORD H3068 hath avouched H559 (8689) thee this day H3117 to be his peculiar H5459 people H5971, as he hath promised H1696 (8765) thee, and that [thou] shouldest keep H8104 (8800) all his commandments H4687;
 And to make H5414 (8800) thee high H5945 above all nations H1471 which he hath made H6213 (8804), in praise H8416, and in name H8034, and in honour H8597; and that thou mayest be an holy H6918 people H5971 unto the LORD H3068 thy God H430, as he hath spoken H1696 (8765).
Young’s Literal Translation
Deuteronomy 26 (YLT)
 ‘And it hath been, when thou comest in unto the land which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee-an inheritance, and thou hast possessed it, and dwelt in it,
 that thou hast taken of the first of all the fruits of the ground which thou dost bring in out of thy land which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee, and hast put it in a basket, and gone unto the place which Jehovah thy God doth choose to cause His name to tabernacle there.
 ‘And thou hast come in unto the priest who is in those days, and hast said unto him, I have declared to-day to Jehovah thy God, that I have come in unto the land which Jehovah hath sworn to our fathers to give to us;
 and the priest hath taken the basket out of thy hand, and placed it before the altar of Jehovah thy God.
 ‘And thou hast answered and said before Jehovah thy God, A perishing Aramaean is my father! and he goeth down to Egypt, and sojourneth there with few men, and becometh there a nation, great, mighty, and numerous;
 and the Egyptians do us evil, and afflict us, and put on us hard service;
 and we cry unto Jehovah, God of our fathers, and Jehovah heareth our voice, and seeth our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression;
 and Jehovah bringeth us out from Egypt, by a strong hand, and by a stretched-out arm, and by great fear, and by signs, and by wonders,
 and he bringeth us in unto this place, and giveth to us this land-a land flowing with milk and honey.
 ‘And now, lo, I have brought in the first of the fruits of the ground which thou hast given to me, O Jehovah;-and thou hast placed it before Jehovah thy God, and bowed thyself before Jehovah thy God,
 and rejoiced in all the good which Jehovah thy God hath given to thee, and to thy house, thou, and the Levite, and the sojourner who is in thy midst.
 ‘When thou dost complete to tithe all the tithe of thine increase in the third year, the year of the tithe, then thou hast given to the Levite, to the sojourner, to the fatherless, and to the widow, and they have eaten within thy gates, and been satisfied,
 and thou hast said before Jehovah thy God, I have put away the separated thing out of the house, and also have given it to the Levite, and to the sojourner, and to the orphan, and to the widow, according to all Thy command which Thou hast commanded me; I have not passed over from Thy commands, nor have I forgotten.
 I have not eaten in mine affliction of it, nor have I put away of it for uncleanness, nor have I given of it for the dead; I have hearkened to the voice of Jehovah my God; I have done according to all that Thou hast commanded me;
 look from Thy holy habitation, from the heavens, and bless Thy people Israel, and the ground which Thou hast given to us, as Thou hast sworn to our fathers-a land flowing with milk and honey.
 ‘This day Jehovah thy God is commanding thee to do these statutes and judgments; and thou hast hearkened and done them with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,
 Jehovah thou hast caused to promise to-day to become thy God, and to walk in His ways, and to keep His statutes, and His commands, and His judgments, and to hearken to His voice.
 ‘And Jehovah hath caused thee to promise to-day to become His people, a peculiar treasure, as He hath spoken to thee, and to keep all His commands;
 so as to make thee uppermost above all the nations whom He hath made for a praise, and for a name, and for beauty, and for thy being a holy people to Jehovah thy God, as He hath spoken.
