Parashat Ki Tavo

1“And it shall be, when you come in unto the land which  יהוה  your Elohim gives you for an inheritance, and possess it, and dwell therein, 2that you shall take of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you shall bring in from your land that  יהוה  your Elohim gives you; and you shall put it in a basket and shall go unto the place which  יהוה  your Elohim shall choose to cause His Name to dwell there. 3And you shall come unto the kohen that shall be in those days, and say unto him, ‘I profess this day unto  יהוה  your Elohim, that I am come unto the land which  יהוה  swore unto our fathers to give us.’ 4And the kohen shall take the basket out of your hand, and set it down before the Mizbe’akh of  יהוה  your Elohim. 5And you shall speak and say before  יהוה  your Elohim, ‘A wandering Arami was my father, and he went down into Mitzrayim, and sojourned there, few in number; and he became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous. 6And Mitzrayim dealt ill with us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage. 7And we cried unto  יהוה , the Elohim of our fathers, and  יהוה  heard our voice, and saw our affliction, and our toil, and our oppression. 8And  יהוה  brought us forth out of Mitzrayim with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders. 9And He has brought us into this place, and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10And now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruit of the land, which You, O  יהוה , have given me.’ And you shall set it down before  יהוה  your Elohim, and worship before  יהוה  your Elohim. 11And you shall rejoice in all the good which  יהוה  your Elohim has given unto you, and unto your house, you, and the Levi, and the stranger that is in the midst of you.”

12“When you have made an end of tithing all the tithe of your increase in the third year, which is the year of tithing, and have given it unto HaLevi, to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, that they may eat within your gates, and be satisfied, 13then you shall say before  יהוה  your Elohim, ‘I have put away the hallowed things out of my house, and also have given them unto the Levi, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all Your Mitzvah which You have commanded me; I have not transgressed any of Your Mitzvot, neither have I forgotten them. 14I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I put away thereof, being unclean, nor given thereof for the dead; I have hearkened to the voice of  יהוה  my Elohim, I have done according to all that You have commanded me. 15Look forth from Your consecrated habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Yisra’el, and the land which You have given us, as You did swear unto our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey’.” 

16“This day  יהוה  your Elohim commands you to do these Khukot and Mishpatim; you shall therefore observe and do them with all your heart, and with all your soul. 17You have avouched  יהוה  this day to be your Elohim, and that you would walk in His ways, and keep His Khukot, and His Mitzvot, and His Mishpatim, and hearken unto His voice. 18And  יהוה  has avouched you this day to be His own treasure, as He has promised you, and that you should keep all His Mitzvot; 19and to make you high above all nations that He has made, in praise, and in name, and in glory; and that you may be a kadosh people unto  יהוה  your Elohim, as He has spoken.”
