Well actually not quite, in fact I am quoting a unique commandment in this week’s portion which describes the Mitzvah of Bikkurim. This Mitzvah which began with their arrival in the land of Israel, entailed taking some of their first and best fruits and produce that they had grown and delivering them to the Temple in Jerusalem where they were then given to the Kohanim, the priests, as an offering, while reciting a thanksgiving prayer.
