||And the priest, taking up the basket from your hand, shall place it before the altar of the Lord your God.
||And you shall say, in the sight of the Lord your God: ‘The Syrian pursued my father, who descended into Egypt, and he sojourned there in a very small number, and he increased into a great and strong nation and into an innumerable multitude.
||And the Egyptians afflicted us, and they persecuted us, imposing upon us the most grievous burdens.
||And we cried out to the Lord, the God of our fathers. He heard us, and he looked with favor upon our humiliation, and hardship, and distress.
||And he led us away from Egypt, with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, with a mighty terror, with signs and wonders.
||And he led us into this place, and he delivered to us the land flowing with milk and honey.
||And because of this, I now offer the first fruits of the land which the Lord has given to me.’ And you shall leave them in the sight of the Lord your God, and you shall adore the Lord your God.
