Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 12:19

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 12:19


12:17 Within thy gates - That is, in your private habitations, here opposed to the place of God's worship.

12:20 Enlarge thy border - Which will make it impossible to bring all the cattle thou usest to the tabernacle.

12:21 If the place be too far - Being obliged to carry their sacrifices to the place of worship, they might think themselves obliged to carry their other cattle thither to be killed. They are therefore released from all such obligations, and left at liberty to kill them at home, whether they lived nearer that place, or farther from it; only the latter is here mentioned, as being the matter of the scruple. As I have commanded - In such a manner as the blood may be poured forth.
