Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 26:2

_ _ Thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth — The Israelites in Canaan, being God’s tenants-at-will, were required to give Him tribute in the form of first-fruits and tithes. No Israelite was at liberty to use any productions of his field until he had presented the required offerings. The tribute began to be exigible after the settlement in the promised land, and it was yearly repeated at one of the great feasts (Leviticus 2:14; Leviticus 23:10; Leviticus 23:15; Numbers 28:26; Deuteronomy 16:9). Every master of a family carried it on his shoulders in a little basket of osier, peeled willow, or palm leaves, and brought it to the sanctuary.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 26:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 26:2

Thou shalt take — This seems to be required of each master of a family, either upon his first settlement, or once every year at one of their three feasts, when they were obliged to go up to Jerusalem.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(a) By this ceremony they acknowledged that they received the land of Canaan as a free gift from God.

(b) To be called upon, served and worshipped spiritually, (Deuteronomy 12:5).
