John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 12:8

Here — Where the inconveniency of the place, and the uncertainty of our abode, would not permit exact order in sacrifices and feasts and ceremonies, which therefore God was then pleased to dispense with; but, saith he, he will not do so there. Right in his own eyes — Not that universal liberty was given to all persons to worship how they listed; but in many things their unsettled condition gave opportunity to do so.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Deuteronomy 12:8

Ye shall not do after all [the things] that we do (f) here this day, every man whatsoever [is] right in his own eyes.

(f) Not that they sacrificed after their fantasies, but that God would be served more purely in the land of Canaan.
