(א) וְהָיָה כִּי תָבוֹא אֶל הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ נֹתֵן לְךָ נַחֲלָה וִירִשְׁתָּהּ וְיָשַׁבְתָּ בָּהּ.

(ב) וְלָקַחְתָּ מֵרֵאשִׁית כָּל פְּרִי הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר תָּבִיא מֵאַרְצְךָ אֲשֶׁר יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ נֹתֵן לָךְ וְשַׂמְתָּ בַטֶּנֶא וְהָלַכְתָּ אֶל הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר יִבְחַר יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ לְשַׁכֵּן שְׁמוֹ שָׁם.

(ג) וּבָאתָ אֶל הַכֹּהֵן אֲשֶׁר יִהְיֶה בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם וְאָמַרְתָּ אֵלָיו הִגַּדְתִּי הַיּוֹם לַיקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ כִּי בָאתִי אֶל הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע יקוק לַאֲבֹתֵינוּ לָתֶת לָנוּ. (ד) וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן הַטֶּנֶא מִיָּדֶךָ וְהִנִּיחוֹ לִפְנֵי מִזְבַּח יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ.

(ה) וְעָנִיתָ וְאָמַרְתָּ לִפְנֵי יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ אֲרַמִּי אֹבֵד אָבִי וַיֵּרֶד מִצְרַיְמָה וַיָּגָר שָׁם בִּמְתֵי מְעָט וַיְהִי שָׁם לְגוֹי גָּדוֹל עָצוּם וָרָב. (ו) וַיָּרֵעוּ אֹתָנוּ הַמִּצְרִים וַיְעַנּוּנוּ וַיִּתְּנוּ עָלֵינוּ עֲבֹדָה קָשָׁה. (ז) וַנִּצְעַק אֶל יקוק אֱלֹהֵי אֲבֹתֵינוּ וַיִּשְׁמַע יקוק אֶת קֹלֵנוּ וַיַּרְא אֶת עָנְיֵנוּ וְאֶת עֲמָלֵנוּ וְאֶת לַחֲצֵנוּ. (ח) וַיּוֹצִאֵנוּ יקוק מִמִּצְרַיִם בְּיָד חֲזָקָה וּבִזְרֹעַ נְטוּיָה וּבְמֹרָא גָּדֹל וּבְאֹתוֹת וּבְמֹפְתִים. (ט) וַיְבִאֵנוּ אֶל הַמָּקוֹם הַזֶּה וַיִּתֶּן לָנוּ אֶת הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ.

(י) וְעַתָּה הִנֵּה הֵבֵאתִי אֶת רֵאשִׁית פְּרִי הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּה לִּי יקוק וְהִנַּחְתּוֹ לִפְנֵי יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ וְהִשְׁתַּחֲוִיתָ לִפְנֵי יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ.

(יא) וְשָׂמַחְתָּ בְכָל הַטּוֹב אֲשֶׁר נָתַן לְךָ יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ וּלְבֵיתֶךָ אַתָּה וְהַלֵּוִי וְהַגֵּר אֲשֶׁר בְּקִרְבֶּךָ.

(1) And it shall be, when you come in to the land which the LORD your God will give to you for an inheritance, and you possess it, and dwell therein;

(2) that you should take of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you should bring in from your land that the LORD your God giveth thee; and you should put it in a basket and you should go to the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to cause His name to dwell there.

(3) And thou shalt come to the priest that shall be in those days, and say to him: ‘I profess this day unto the LORD thy God, that I have come to the land which the LORD swore unto our fathers to give us.’ (4) And the priest shall take the basket out of your hand, and set it down before the altar of the LORD thy God.

(5) And you should speak and say before the LORD thy God: ‘A wandering Aramean was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there, few in number; and he became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous. (6) And the Egyptians dealt ill with us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage. (7) And we cried out to the LORD, the God of our fathers, and the LORD heard our voice, and saw our affliction, and our toil, and our oppression. (8) And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders. (9) And He hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.

(10) And now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruit of the land, which Thou, O LORD, hast given me.’ And thou shalt set it down before the LORD thy God, and worship before the LORD thy God.

(11) And thou shalt rejoice in all the good which the LORD thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thy house, thou, and the Levite, and the stranger that is in the midst of thee.

(ב) עִבְדוּ אֶת יקוק בְּשִׂמְחָה בֹּאוּ לְפָנָיו בִּרְנָנָה.

(2) Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
3 ג

(מז) תַּחַת אֲשֶׁר לֹא עָבַדְתָּ אֶת יקוק אֱלֹהֶיךָ בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְטוּב לֵבָב מֵרֹב כֹּל.

(47) because thou didst not serve the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, by reason of the abundance of all things;
4 ד

(א)....איזהו עשיר? השמח בחלקו, שנאמר: (תהלים קכח ב): "יגיע כפיך כי תאכל אשריך וטוב לך".אשריך, בעולם הזה .וטוב לך, לעולם הבא.

(1) ....Who is the rich one? He who is happy with his lot, as it says, "When you eat [from] the work of your hands, you will be happy, and it will be well with you" (Psalms 128:2). "You will be happy" in this world, and "it will be well with you" in the world to come.
