This essay has focused on the setting of the name in Deut. 12:5. An overarching question in relation to this theme has been covenantal and spatial implications of the setting. An emphasis has been laid on the name (shem) and place (makom) from different angles. Among these, one can find structural similarities between the name and the word, as well as the place and the people. A specific attention has been directed to the royal function of the sacrifice executor (kohen) and references to Melkesedek in Deut. By describing the relation between God and his people in terms of patronage, the sacrifice executor can be seen as a messianic figure manifesting the name and also representing the patronage of God. By these approaches the essay has also tried to show how a messianic reading of Deut. can be performed.
