12:25 If you do not eat it, you and your descendants will have a good life, since you will be doing what is morally right in God's eyes.
Lo tochelenu lema'an yitav lecha ulevaneycha achareycha ki-ta'aseh hayashar be'eyney Adonay.
12:26 However, when you have any sacred offerings and pledges, you must take them and bring them to the place that God shall choose.
Rak kodasheycha asher-yihyu lecha unedareycha tisa uvata el-hamakom asher-yivchar Adonay.



Commentary:

morally right
  (cf. Sifri on Deuteronomy 12:28). Yashar in Hebrew. Here we see that even in ritual laws there is an element of divine morality. Or, 'the straight way toward your calling' (Hirsch).
