Deuteronomy Chapter 26
2 That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there.
3 And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the LORD thy God, that I am come unto the country which the LORD sware unto our fathers for to give us.
5 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous:
12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;
13 Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them:
14 I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.

(16-19 cont.); Now while there is value in likening spiritual things, and symbolic references to the things about our salvation in Jesus Christ; what are the facts and actual events that we can attest to and certify God's dealings with us? The Israelites WERE ACTUALLY AND REALLY taken out from Egypt by mighty signs and wonders: WE can use comparisons; but what REALLY happened? What are the facts?

(16-19); "..Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways..and the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people.." Avouch - attest, authenticate, certify, testify (to), vouch (for), witness. It has become a strong custom to turn the things from old time into symbolic meanings to relate to ourselves today; but the Israelites were going on factual events.
