Deuteronomy 12:5; Deuteronomy 12:11; Deuteronomy 14:23; Deuteronomy 16:6; Deuteronomy 16:11; Deuteronomy 26:2; 1 Kings 8:29; 1 Kings 9:3; 2 Chronicles 6:6; 2 Chronicles 7:16; 2 Chronicles 12:13; Ezra 6:12; Nehemiah 1:9; Psalm 74:7; Jeremiah 7:10; Jeremiah 7:12

But you shall seek jthe place that the Lord your God will choose out of all your tribes to put his name and make his habitation1 there. There you shall go,


11 then to jthe place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name dwell there, there you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, kyour tithes and the contribution that you present, and all your finest vow offerings that you vow to the Lord.


23 And before the Lord your God, in the place that he will choose, to make his name dwell there, byou shall eat the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, cand the firstborn of your herd and flock, dthat you may learn to fear the Lord your God always.


but at the place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name dwell in it, there you shall offer the Passover sacrifice, in the evening at sunset, at the time you came out of Egypt.


11 And wyou shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name dwell there.


wyou shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you harvest from your land that the Lord your God is giving you, and you shall put it in a basket, and you shall xgo to the place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name to dwell there.


29 tthat your eyes may be open night and day toward this house, the place of which you have said, uMy name shall be there, that you may listen to the prayer that your servant offers toward this place.


And the Lord said to him, I have heard your prayer and your plea, which you have made before me. I have consecrated this house that you have built, nby putting my name there forever. oMy eyes and my heart will be there for all time.


tbut I have chosen Jerusalem that my name may be there, uand I have chosen David to be over my people Israel.


16 eFor now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time.


13 rSo King Rehoboam grew strong in Jerusalem and reigned. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city that the Lord had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel to put his name there. His mother's name was Naamah the Ammonite.


12 May the God cwho has caused his name to dwell there overthrow any king or people who shall put out a hand to alter this, or to destroy this house of God that is in Jerusalem. I Darius make a decree; let it be done with all diligence.


rbut if you return to me and keep my commandments and do them, sthough your outcasts are in the uttermost parts of heaven, from there I will gather them and bring them tto the place that I have chosen, to make my name dwell there.


They hset your sanctuary on fire;

they iprofaned jthe dwelling place of your name,

bringing it down to the ground.


10 and then come and stand before me in this house, uwhich is called by my name, and say, We are delivered!only to go on doing all these abominations?


12 Go now to xmy place that was in Shiloh, ywhere I made my name dwell at first, and zsee what I did to it because of the evil of my people Israel.
