Deuteronomy Chapter 26 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "A (Perseus) Syrian ready to perish (of hunger) was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a (Gemini) few (Gen. 46: In 1661 B.C. -- 215 years after God promised to make Abraham a great nation in Gen. 12:2), and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous: And the (Gemini) Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage" (+360°)(Deut. 26:5-6) till "we cried unto the (Shekinah) Lord God of our (Gemini) fathers, the Lord (lunar ears) heard our (red radius) voice, and (lunar eyes) looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression: And the (Shekinah) Lord brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty (lunar) hand, and with an outstretched (red radius) arm, and with great terribleness, and with (zodiac) signs, and with wonders (1446 B.C.): And he hath brought us into this (golden) place, and hath given us this (golden) land, even a land that floweth with (lunar white) milk and (solar golden) honey" (+150°)(1406 B.C.) (Deut. 26:7-9) is 255 years which is 510° (if each year is 2°) from Gemini one complete lap and then 150° more to (golden) honey at Ophiuchus's feet.

 

Firstfruits Were 1/60th of Total Harvest

 

26:1 And it shall be, when thou art come in unto the land which the (Shekinah) Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and possessest it, and dwellest therein;

2 That thou shalt take of the first of all the (lunar and solar) fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the (Shekinah) Lord thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a (lunar) basket, and shalt go unto the place which the (Shekinah) Lord thy God shall choose to place his name there.

According to tradition, they were to bring the sixtieth part; so says Maimonides,"the firstfruits have no measure (no fixed measure) from the law; but from the words of the wise men, a man ought to separate one out of sixty:" (Maimon. Hilchot Biccurim, c. 2. sect. 17.)

3 And thou (Ophiuchus) shalt go unto the (Hercules) priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the (Shekinah) Lord thy God, that I am come unto the country which the (Shekinah) Lord sware unto our (Gemini) fathers for to give us.

4 And the (Castor) priest shall take the (lunar) basket out of thine hand, and set it down before the altar of the (Shekinah) Lord thy God.

5 And thou shalt speak and say before the (Shekinah) Lord thy God, A (Perseus) Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a (Gemini) few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous:

6 And the (Gemini) Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage:

7 And when we cried unto the (Shekinah) Lord God of our (Gemini) fathers, the Lord (lunar ears) heard our (red radius) voice, and (lunar eyes) looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression:

8 And the (Shekinah) Lord brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty (lunar or Castor) hand, and with an outstretched (Perseus) arm, and with great terribleness, and with (zodiac) signs, and with wonders:

9 And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, even a land that floweth with (lunar white) milk and (solar golden) honey.

10 And now, (lunar eyes) behold, I have brought the (lunar and solar) firstfruits of the land, which thou, O Lord, hast given me. And thou shalt set it before the Lord thy God, and worship before the (Shekinah) Lord thy God:

11 And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the (Shekinah) Lord thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine (red radius) house, thou (Castor), and the (Pollux) Levite, and the (Perseus) stranger that is among you.

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 (Hercules) Levite, the (Perseus) stranger, the (Castor) fatherless, and the (Pollux) widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

13 Then thou shalt say before the (Shekinah) Lord thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine (red radius) house, and also have given them unto the (Hercules) Levite, and unto the (Perseus) stranger, to the (Castor) fatherless, and to the (Pollux) 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 (lunar ears) hearkened to the (red radius) voice of the (Shekinah) Lord my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.

15 Look (lunar eyes) down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and (lunar hands) bless thy (Gemini) people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our (Gemini) fathers, a land that floweth with (lunar white) milk and (solar golden) honey.

16 This day the (Shekinah) Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

17 Thou hast avouched the (Shekinah) Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to (lunar ears) hearken unto his voice:

18 And the (Shekinah) Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar (Gemini) people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments;

19 And to make thee high above all (Gemini) nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy (Gemini) people unto the (Shekinah) Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.
