Deuteronomy 12:32 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

On the promise for doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord, see Deuteronomy 6:18. - In Deuteronomy 12:26, Deuteronomy 12:27, the command to offer all the holy gifts at the place chosen by the Lord is enforced once more, as in Deuteronomy 12:6, Deuteronomy 12:11, Deuteronomy 12:17, Deuteronomy 12:18; also to prepare the sacrifices at His altar. קדשׁים, the holy offerings prescribed in the law, as in Numbers 18:8; see at Leviticus 21:22. The "votive offerings" are mentioned in connection with these, because vows proceeded from a spontaneous impulse. לך יהיוּ אשׁר, "which are to thee," are binding upon thee. In v. 27, "the flesh and the blood" are in opposition to "thy burnt-offerings:" "thy burnt-offerings, namely the flesh and blood of them," thou shalt prepare at the altar of Jehovah; i.e., the flesh and blood of the burnt-offerings were to be placed upon and against the altar (see at Leviticus 1:5-9). Of the slain-offerings, i.e., the shelamim, the blood was to be poured out against the altar (Leviticus 3:2, Leviticus 3:8, Leviticus 3:13); "the flesh thou canst eat" (cf. Leviticus 7:11.). There is no ground for seeking an antithesis in ישּׁפך, as Knobel does, to the זרק in the sacrificial ritual. The indefinite expression may be explained from the retrospective allusion to Deuteronomy 12:24 and the purely suggestive character of the whole passage, the thing itself being supposed to be sufficiently known from the previous laws.
