NowH6258 therefore listen,H8085 O Israel,H3478 to the statutesH2706 and to the judgments,H4941 whichH834 I teachH3925 you, for to doH6213 them, that you may live,H2421 and goH935 in and possessH3423 the landH776 which the LORDH3068 GodH430 of your fathersH1 givesH5414 you.
You shall not addH3254 to the wordH1697 whichH834 I commandH6680 you, neitherH3808 shall you diminishH1639 ought from it, that you may keepH8104 the commandmentsH4687 of the LORDH3068 your GodH430 whichH834 I commandH6680 you.
Your eyesH5869 have seenH7200 whatH853 H834 the LORDH3068 didH6213 because of Baalpeor:H1187 for allH3605 the menH376 that followedH1980 H310 Baalpeor,H1187 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 has destroyedH8045 them from amongH7130 you.
But you that did joinH1695 to the LORDH3068 your GodH430 are aliveH2416 everyH3605 one of you this day.H3117
Behold,H7200 I have taughtH3925 you statutesH2706 and judgments,H4941 even as the LORDH3068 my GodH430 commandedH6680 me, that you should doH6213 soH3651 in the landH776 whereH834 H8033 you goH935 to possessH3423 it.
KeepH8104 therefore and doH6213 them; for thisH1931 is your wisdomH2451 and your understandingH998 in the sightH5869 of the nations,H5971 whichH834 shall hearH8085 allH3605 theseH428 statutes,H2706 and say,H559 Surely thisH2088 greatH1419 nationH1471 is a wiseH2450 and understandingH995 people.H5971
For whatH4310 nationH1471 is there so great,H1419 whoH834 has GodH430 so nearH7126 to them, as the LORDH3068 our GodH430 is in allH3605 things that we callH7121 on him for?
And whatH4310 nationH1471 is there so great,H1419 that has statutesH2706 and judgmentsH4941 so righteousH6662 as allH3605 thisH2063 law,H8451 whichH834 I setH5414 beforeH6440 you this day?H3117
OnlyH7535 take heedH8104 to yourself, and keepH8104 your soulH5315 diligently,H3966 lestH6435 you forgetH7911 the thingsH1697 whichH834 your eyesH5869 have seen,H7200 and lestH6435 they departH5493 from your heartH3824 allH3605 the daysH3117 of your life:H2416 but teachH3045 them your sons,H1121 and your sons'H1121 sons;H1121
Specially the dayH3117 that you stoodH5975 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 in Horeb,H2722 when the LORDH3068 saidH559 to me, GatherH6950 me the peopleH5971 together, and I will make them hearH8085 my words,H1697 that they may learnH3925 to fearH3372 me allH3605 the daysH3117 that they shall liveH2416 on the earth,H127 and that they may teachH3925 their children.H1121
And you cameH7126 nearH7126 and stoodH5975 underH8478 the mountain;H2022 and the mountainH2022 burnedH1197 with fireH784 to the middleH3820 of heaven,H8064 with darkness,H2822 clouds,H6051 and thick darkness.H6205
And the LORDH3068 spokeH1696 to you out of the middleH8432 of the fire:H784 you heardH8085 the voiceH6963 of the words,H1697 but sawH7200 noH369 similitude;H8544 onlyH2108 you heardH8085 a voice.H6963
And he declaredH5046 to you his covenant,H1285 whichH834 he commandedH6680 you to perform,H6213 even tenH6235 commandments;H1697 and he wroteH3789 them on twoH8147 tablesH3871 of stone.H68
And the LORDH3068 commandedH6680 me at that timeH6256 to teachH3925 you statutesH2706 and judgments,H4941 that you might doH6213 them in the landH776 whereH834 H8033 you goH5674 overH5674 to possessH3423 it.
Take you therefore goodH3966 heedH8104 to yourselves;H5315 for you sawH7200 noH3808 manner of similitudeH8544 onH5921 the dayH3117 that the LORDH3068 spokeH1696 to you in HorebH2722 out of the middleH8432 of the fire:H784
LestH6435 you corruptH7843 yourselves, and makeH6213 you a gravenH6459 image, the similitudeH8544 of anyH3605 figure,H5566 the likenessH8403 of maleH2145 orH176 female,H5347
The likenessH8403 of anyH3605 beastH929 that is onH5921 the earth,H776 the likenessH8403 of anyH3605 wingedH3671 fowlH6833 that fliesH5774 in the air,H8064
The likenessH8403 of anyH3605 thing that creepsH7430 onH5921 the ground,H127 the likenessH8403 of anyH3605 fishH1710 that is in the watersH4325 beneathH8478 the earth:H776
And lestH6435 you liftH5375 up your eyesH5869 to heaven,H8064 and when you seeH7200 the sun,H8121 and the moon,H3394 and the stars,H3556 even allH3605 the hostH6635 of heaven,H8064 should be drivenH5080 to worshipH7812 them, and serveH5647 them, whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 has dividedH2505 to allH3605 nationsH5971 underH8478 the wholeH3605 heaven.H8064
But the LORDH3068 has takenH3947 you, and broughtH3318 you forthH3318 out of the ironH1270 furnace,H3564 even out of Egypt,H4714 to be to him a peopleH5971 of inheritance,H5159 as you are thisH2088 day.H3117
Furthermore the LORDH3068 was angryH599 with me for your sakes,H1697 and sworeH7650 that I should not goH5674 overH5674 Jordan,H3383 and that I should not goH935 in to that goodH2896 land,H776 whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 givesH5414 you for an inheritance:H5159
But I must dieH4191 in thisH2088 land,H776 I must not goH5674 overH5674 Jordan:H3383 but you shall goH5674 over,H5674 and possessH3423 that goodH2896 land.H776
Take heedH8104 to yourselves, lestH6435 you forgetH7911 the covenantH1285 of the LORDH3068 your God,H430 whichH834 he made with you, and makeH6213 you a gravenH6459 image, or the likenessH8544 of anyH3605 thing, whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 has forbiddenH6680 you.
For the LORDH3068 your GodH430 is a consumingH398 fire,H784 even a jealousH7067 God.H410
WhenH3588 you shall begetH3205 children,H1121 and children's children,H1121 and you shall have remainedH3462 long in the land,H776 and shall corruptH7843 yourselves, and makeH6213 a gravenH6459 image, or the likenessH8544 of anyH3605 thing, and shall doH6213 evilH7451 in the sightH5869 of the LORDH3068 your God,H430 to provoke him to anger:H3707
I callH5749 heavenH8064 and earthH776 to witnessH5749 against you this day,H3117 that you shall soonH4116 utterly perishH6 from offH5921 the landH776 whereuntoH834 you goH5674 overH5674 JordanH3383 to possessH3423 it; you shall not prolongH748 your daysH3117 on it, but shall utterly be destroyed.H8045
And the LORDH3068 shall scatterH6327 you among the nations,H5971 and you shall be leftH7604 fewH4962 in numberH4557 among the heathen,H1471 whereH834 H8033 the LORDH3068 shall leadH5090 you.
And thereH8033 you shall serveH5647 gods,H430 the workH4639 of men'sH120 hands,H3027 woodH6086 and stone,H68 whichH834 neitherH3808 see,H7200 norH3808 hear,H8085 norH3808 eat,H398 norH3808 smell.H7306
But if from thereH8033 you shall seekH1245 the LORDH3068 your God,H430 you shall findH4672 him, ifH3588 you seekH1875 him with allH3605 your heartH3824 and with allH3605 your soul.H5315
When you are in tribulation,H6862 and allH3605 theseH428 thingsH1697 are comeH4672 on you, even in the latterH319 days,H3117 if you turnH7725 to the LORDH3068 your God,H430 and shall be obedientH8085 to his voice;H6963
(For the LORDH3068 your GodH430 is a mercifulH7349 God;H410) he will not forsakeH7503 you, neitherH3808 destroyH7843 you, norH3808 forgetH7911 the covenantH1285 of your fathersH1 whichH834 he sworeH7650 to them.
For askH7592 nowH4994 of the daysH3117 that are past,H7223 whichH834 were beforeH6440 you, sinceH4480 the dayH3117 that GodH430 createdH1254 manH120 on the earth,H776 and ask from the one sideH7097 of heavenH8064 to the other, whether there has beenH1961 any such thing as thisH2088 greatH1419 thingH1697 is, orH176 has been heardH8085 likeH3644 it?
Did ever peopleH5971 hearH8085 the voiceH6963 of GodH430 speakingH1696 out of the middleH8432 of the fire,H784 as you have heard,H8085 and live?H2421
OrH176 has GodH430 assayedH5254 to goH935 and takeH3947 him a nationH1471 from the middleH7130 of another nation,H1471 by temptations,H4531 by signs,H226 and by wonders,H4159 and by war,H4421 and by a mightyH2389 hand,H3027 and by a stretchedH5186 out arm,H2220 and by greatH1419 terrors,H4172 according to allH3605 that the LORDH3068 your GodH430 didH6213 for you in EgyptH4714 before your eyes?H5869
To you it was showed,H7200 that you might knowH3045 that the LORDH3068 he is God;H430 there is noneH369 elseH5750 besideH905 him.
Out of heavenH8064 he made you to hearH8085 his voice,H6963 that he might instructH3256 you: and on earthH776 he showedH7200 you his greatH1419 fire;H784 and you heardH8085 his wordsH1697 out of the middleH8432 of the fire.H784
And becauseH8478 H3588 he lovedH157 your fathers,H1 therefore he choseH977 their seedH2233 afterH310 them, and broughtH3318 you out in his sightH6440 with his mightyH1419 powerH3581 out of Egypt;H4714
To driveH3423 out nationsH1471 from beforeH6440 you greaterH1419 and mightierH6099 than you are, to bringH935 you in, to giveH5414 you their landH776 for an inheritance,H5159 as it is thisH2088 day.H3117
KnowH3045 therefore this day,H3117 and considerH7725 it in your heart,H3824 that the LORDH3068 he is GodH430 in heavenH8064 above,H4605 and on the earthH776 beneath:H8478 there is noneH369 else.H5750
You shall keepH8104 therefore his statutes,H2706 and his commandments,H4687 whichH834 I commandH6680 you this day,H3117 that it may go wellH3190 with you, and with your childrenH1121 afterH310 you, and that you may prolongH748 your daysH3117 on the earth,H127 whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 givesH5414 you, for ever.H3605 H3117
ThenH227 MosesH4872 severedH914 threeH7969 citiesH5892 onH5921 this sideH5676 JordanH3383 toward the sunH8121 rise;H4217
That the slayerH7523 might fleeH5127 thither,H8033 whichH834 should killH7523 his neighborH7453 unawares,H1097 H1847 and hatedH8130 him not in timesH8543 past;H8032 and that fleeingH5127 to oneH259 of theseH411 citiesH5892 he might live:H2425
Namely, BezerH1221 in the wilderness,H4057 in the plainH4334 country,H776 of the Reubenites;H7206 and RamothH7216 in Gilead,H1568 of the Gadites;H1425 and GolanH1474 in Bashan,H1316 of the Manassites.H4520
And thisH2063 is the lawH8451 whichH834 MosesH4872 setH7760 beforeH6440 the childrenH1121 of Israel:H3478
TheseH428 are the testimonies,H5713 and the statutes,H2706 and the judgments,H4941 whichH834 MosesH4872 spokeH1696 to the childrenH1121 of Israel,H3478 after they cameH3318 forthH3318 out of Egypt.H4714
OnH5921 this sideH5676 Jordan,H3383 in the valleyH1516 overH4136 againstH4136 Bethpeor,H1047 in the landH776 of SihonH5511 kingH4428 of the Amorites,H567 whoH834 dwelledH3427 at Heshbon,H2809 whomH834 MosesH4872 and the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 smote,H5221 after they were comeH3318 forthH3318 out of Egypt:H4714
And they possessedH3423 his land,H776 and the landH776 of OgH5747 kingH4428 of Bashan,H1316 twoH8147 kingsH4428 of the Amorites,H567 whichH834 were onH5921 this sideH5676 JordanH3383 toward the sunH8121 rise;H4217
From Aroer,H6177 whichH834 is by the bankH8193 of the riverH5158 Arnon,H769 even to mountH2022 Sion,H7865 whichH1931 is Hermon,H2768
And allH3605 the plainH6160 onH5921 this sideH5676 JordanH3383 eastward,H4217 even to the seaH3220 of the plain,H6160 underH8478 the springsH794 of Pisgah.H6449
