CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
26:2 Thou shalt take - This seems to be required of each master of a family, either upon his first settlement, or once every year at one of their three feasts, when they were obliged to go up to Jerusalem.
"Build for me an altar made of earth, and offer your sacrifices to me--your burnt offerings and peace offerings, your sheep and goats, and your cattle. Build my altar wherever I cause my name to be remembered, and I will come to you and bless you.
"You must not hold anything back when you give me offerings from your crops and your wine. "You must give me your firstborn sons.
"Second, celebrate the Festival of Harvest, when you bring me the first crops of your harvest. "Finally, celebrate the Festival of the Final Harvest at the end of the harvest season, when you have harvested all the crops from your fields.
"As you harvest your crops, bring the very best of the first harvest to the house of the LORD your God. "You must not cook a young goat in its mother's milk.
"As you harvest your crops, bring the very best of the first harvest to the house of the LORD your God. "You must not cook a young goat in its mother's milk."
All the first crops of their land that the people present to the LORD belong to you. Any member of your family who is ceremonially clean may eat this food.
Rather, you must seek the LORD your God at the place of worship he himself will choose from among all the tribes--the place where his name will be honored.
