The LORD Your G-D Will Choose
One of the things that the Israelites are commanded to do when they enter the land is to level and wipe out all the cult sites (places of idolatrous worship) they find there (Deut. 12:1-3). In contrast to pagan worship which is practiced anywhere, worship of the Lord is to be centralized in one place, “the site that the Lord your G-d will choose.” There the Lord is to be sought and there all offerings and sacrifices are to be brought (12:4-7). This intended site is, of course, Jerusalem.
