Book 05    Deuteronomy
001:001 These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this
        side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the
        Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth,
        and Dizahab.
001:002 (There are eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of mount
        Seir unto Kadeshbarnea.)
001:003 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh
        month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto
        the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had
        given him in commandment unto them;
001:004 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt
        in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth
        in Edrei:
001:005 On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to
        declare this law, saying,
001:006 The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt
        long enough in this mount:
001:007 Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the
        Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the
        plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by
        the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon,
        unto the great river, the river Euphrates.
001:008 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the
        land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac,
        and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.
001:009 And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to
        bear you myself alone:
001:010 The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are
        this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.
001:011 (The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so
        many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!)
001:012 How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden,
        and your strife?
001:013 Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your
        tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
001:014 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken
        is good for us to do.
001:015 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and
        made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and
        captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and
        captains over tens, and officers among your tribes.
001:016 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the
        causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between
        every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.
001:017 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear
        the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the
        face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is
        too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
001:018 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye
        should do.
001:019 And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that
        great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the
        mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us;
        and we came to Kadeshbarnea.
001:020 And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the
        Amorites, which the LORD our God doth give unto us.
001:021 Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up
        and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto
        thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.
001:022 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will
        send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and
        bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what
        cities we shall come.
001:023 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you,
        one of a tribe:
001:024 And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto
        the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.
001:025 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and
        brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said,
        It is a good land which the LORD our God doth give us.
001:026 Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the
        commandment of the LORD your God:
001:027 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD
        hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt,
        to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.
001:028 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our
        heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the
        cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have
        seen the sons of the Anakims there.
001:029 Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.
001:030 The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for
        you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your
        eyes;
001:031 And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD
        thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way
        that ye went, until ye came into this place.
001:032 Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,
001:033 Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to
        pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way
        ye should go, and in a cloud by day.
001:034 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and
        sware, saying,
001:035 Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil
        generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your
        fathers.
001:036 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him
        will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his
        children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD.
001:037 Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou
        also shalt not go in thither.
001:038 But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he
        shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel
        to inherit it.
001:039 Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and
        your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good
        and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give
        it, and they shall possess it.
001:040 But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the
        wilderness by the way of the Red sea.
001:041 Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the
        LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD
        our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his
        weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill.
001:042 And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them. Go not up, neither
        fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your
        enemies.
001:043 So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled
        against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously
        up into the hill.
001:044 And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out
        against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in
        Seir, even unto Hormah.
001:045 And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would
        not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.
001:046 So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that
        ye abode there.
002:001 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by
        the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we
        compassed mount Seir many days.
002:002 And the LORD spake unto me, saying,
002:003 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you
        northward.
002:004 And command thou the people, saying, Ye are to pass through
        the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell
        in Seir; and they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed
        unto yourselves therefore:
002:005 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land,
        no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount
        Seir unto Esau for a possession.
002:006 Ye shall buy meat of them for money, that ye may eat; and ye
        shall also buy water of them for money, that ye may drink.
002:007 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy
        hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness:
        these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou
        hast lacked nothing.
002:008 And when we passed by from our brethren the children of Esau,
        which dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from Elath,
        and from Eziongaber, we turned and passed by the way of the
        wilderness of Moab.
002:009 And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither
        contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their
        land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the
        children of Lot for a possession.
002:010 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and
        many, and tall, as the Anakims;
002:011 Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the
        Moabites called them Emims.
002:012 The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of
        Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before
        them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of
        his possession, which the LORD gave unto them.
002:013 Now rise up, said I, and get you over the brook Zered. And we
        went over the brook Zered.
002:014 And the space in which we came from Kadeshbarnea, until we
        were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years;
        until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out
        from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them.
002:015 For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy
        them from among the host, until they were consumed.
002:016 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and
        dead from among the people,
002:017 That the LORD spake unto me, saying,
002:018 Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:
002:019 And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon,
        distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give
        thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession;
        because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a
        possession.
002:020 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt
        therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
002:021 A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the
        LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and
        dwelt in their stead:
002:022 As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when
        he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded
        them, and dwelt in their stead even unto this day:
002:023 And the Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, even unto Azzah, the
        Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed them,
        and dwelt in their stead.)
002:024 Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon:
        behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king
        of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend
        with him in battle.
002:025 This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of
        thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who
        shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in
        anguish because of thee.
002:026 And I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto
        Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,
002:027 Let me pass through thy land: I will go along by the high way,
        I will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left.
002:028 Thou shalt sell me meat for money, that I may eat; and give me
        water for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through on
        my feet;
002:029 (As the children of Esau which dwell in Seir, and the Moabites
        which dwell in Ar, did unto me;) until I shall pass over
        Jordan into the land which the LORD our God giveth us.
002:030 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for
        the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart
        obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as
        appeareth this day.
002:031 And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon
        and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest
        inherit his land.
002:032 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to
        fight at Jahaz.
002:033 And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote
        him, and his sons, and all his people.
002:034 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed
        the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we
        left none to remain:
002:035 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, and the
        spoil of the cities which we took.
002:036 From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and
        from the city that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there
        was not one city too strong for us: the LORD our God delivered
        all unto us:
002:037 Only unto the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not,
        nor unto any place of the river Jabbok, nor unto the cities in
        the mountains, nor unto whatsoever the LORD our God forbad us.
003:001 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king
        of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to
        battle at Edrei.
003:002 And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver
        him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou
        shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the
        Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.
003:003 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king
        of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was
        left to him remaining.
003:004 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city
        which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region
        of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
003:005 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars;
        beside unwalled towns a great many.
003:006 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of
        Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of
        every city.
003:007 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a
        prey to ourselves.
003:008 And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of
        the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the
        river of Arnon unto mount Hermon;
003:009 (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call
        it Shenir;)
003:010 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan,
        unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
003:011 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants;
        behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in
        Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length
        thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of
        a man.
003:012 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer,
        which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the
        cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.
003:013 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of
        Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of
        Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.
003:014 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto
        the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his
        own name, Bashanhavothjair, unto this day.
003:015 And I gave Gilead unto Machir.
003:016 And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from
        Gilead even unto the river Arnon half the valley, and the
        border even unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the
        children of Ammon;
003:017 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof, from
        Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea,
        under Ashdothpisgah eastward.
003:018 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LORD your God
        hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over
        armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that
        are meet for the war.
003:019 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I
        know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities
        which I have given you;
003:020 Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as
        unto you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD
        your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye
        return every man unto his possession, which I have given you.
003:021 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have
        seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two
        kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou
        passest.
003:022 Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight
        for you.
003:023 And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,
003:024 O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness,
        and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in
        earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to
        thy might?
003:025 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is
        beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.
003:026 But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not
        hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak
        no more unto me of this matter.
003:027 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes
        westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and
        behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this
        Jordan.
003:028 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for
        he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them
        to inherit the land which thou shalt see.
003:029 So we abode in the valley over against Bethpeor.
004:001 Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto
        the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may
        live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of
        your fathers giveth you.
004:002 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither
        shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the
        commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
004:003 Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for
        all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath
        destroyed them from among you.
004:004 But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every
        one of you this day.
004:005 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the
        LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land
        whither ye go to possess it.
004:006 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your
        understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear
        all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a
        wise and understanding people.
004:007 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto
        them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon
        him for?
004:008 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and
        judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you
        this day?
004:009 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest
        thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest
        they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach
        them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;
004:010 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God
        in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people
        together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may
        learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the
        earth, and that they may teach their children.
004:011 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the
        mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with
        darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.
004:012 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye
        heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye
        heard a voice.
004:013 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you
        to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two
        tables of stone.
004:014 And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes
        and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go
        over to possess it.
004:015 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no
        manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you
        in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:
004:016 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the
        similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
004:017 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness
        of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,
004:018 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the
        likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
004:019 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou
        seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host
        of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve
        them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations
        under the whole heaven.
004:020 But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the
        iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of
        inheritance, as ye are this day.
004:021 Furthermore the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, and
        sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not
        go in unto that good land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee
        for an inheritance:
004:022 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye
        shall go over, and possess that good land.
004:023 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the
        LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven
        image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God
        hath forbidden thee.
004:024 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
004:025 When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and
        ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt
        yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any
        thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to
        provoke him to anger:
004:026 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that
        ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go
        over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon
        it, but shall utterly be destroyed.
004:027 And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall
        be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD
        shall lead you.
004:028 And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood
        and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
004:029 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou
        shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with
        all thy soul.
004:030 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come
        upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD
        thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
004:031 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake
        thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy
        fathers which he sware unto them.
004:032 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee,
        since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask
        from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath
        been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard
        like it?
004:033 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the
        midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?
004:034 Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst
        of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders,
        and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm,
        and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God
        did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
004:035 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD
        he is God; there is none else beside him.
004:036 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might
        instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire;
        and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.
004:037 And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their
        seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his
        mighty power out of Egypt;
004:038 To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier
        than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for
        an inheritance, as it is this day.
004:039 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that
        the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth
        beneath: there is none else.
004:040 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments,
        which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee,
        and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong
        thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee,
        for ever.
004:041 Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward the
        sunrising;
004:042 That the slayer might flee thither, which should kill his
        neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that
        fleeing unto one of these cities he might live:
004:043 Namely, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the
        Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in
        Bashan, of the Manassites.
004:044 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of
        Israel:
004:045 These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the
        judgments, which Moses spake unto the children of Israel,
        after they came forth out of Egypt.
004:046 On this side Jordan, in the valley over against Bethpeor, in
        the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon,
        whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, after they were
        come forth out of Egypt:
004:047 And they possessed his land, and the land of Og king of
        Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, which were on this side
        Jordan toward the sunrising;
004:048 From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto
        mount Sion, which is Hermon,
004:049 And all the plain on this side Jordan eastward, even unto the
        sea of the plain, under the springs of Pisgah.
005:001 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O
        Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears
        this day, that ye may learn them, and keep, and do them.
005:002 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.
005:003 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us,
        even us, who are all of us here alive this day.
005:004 The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the
        midst of the fire,
005:005 (I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to shew you
        the word of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the
        fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,
005:006 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of
        Egypt, from the house of bondage.
005:007 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
005:008 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of
        any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth
        beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
005:009 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for
        I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of
        the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth
        generation of them that hate me,
005:010 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep
        my commandments.
005:011 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for
        the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in
        vain.
005:012 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath
        commanded thee.
005:013 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
005:014 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it
        thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
        daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine
        ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger
        that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy
        maidservant may rest as well as thou.
005:015 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt,
        and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a
        mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy
        God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
005:016 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath
        commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it
        may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God
        giveth thee.
005:017 Thou shalt not kill.
005:018 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.
005:019 Neither shalt thou steal.
005:020 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.
005:021 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt
        thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his
        manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any
        thing that is thy neighbour's.
005:022 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount
        out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick
        darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he
        wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.
005:023 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst
        of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that
        ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and
        your elders;
005:024 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory
        and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the
        midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk
        with man, and he liveth.
005:025 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will
        consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more,
        then we shall die.
005:026 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of
        the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we
        have, and lived?
005:027 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say:
        and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak
        unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it.
005:028 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto
        me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the
        words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they
        have well said all that they have spoken.
005:029 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear
        me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well
        with them, and with their children for ever!
005:030 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.
005:031 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto
        thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the
        judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them
        in the land which I give them to possess it.
005:032 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath
        commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to
        the left.
005:033 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath
        commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with
        you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye
        shall possess.
006:001 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the
        judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you,
        that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
006:002 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his
        statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and
        thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that
        thy days may be prolonged.
006:003 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be
        well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD
        God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that
        floweth with milk and honey.
006:004 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
006:005 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and
        with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
006:006 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in
        thine heart:
006:007 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and
        shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when
        thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when
        thou risest up.
006:008 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they
        shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
006:009 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on
        thy gates.
006:010 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee
        into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to
        Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities,
        which thou buildedst not,
006:011 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not,
        and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive
        trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten
        and be full;
006:012 Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee
        forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
006:013 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt
        swear by his name.
006:014 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people
        which are round about you;
006:015 (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the
        anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy
        thee from off the face of the earth.
006:016 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in
        Massah.
006:017 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your
        God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath
        commanded thee.
006:018 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of
        the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest
        go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy
        fathers.
006:019 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD
        hath spoken.
006:020 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What
        mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments,
        which the LORD our God hath commanded you?
006:021 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in
        Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty
        hand:
006:022 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon
        Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our
        eyes:
006:023 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in,
        to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
006:024 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear
        the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve
        us alive, as it is at this day.
006:025 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all
        these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath
        commanded us.
007:001 When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither
        thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations
        before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the
        Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the
        Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier
        than thou;
007:002 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou
        shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no
        covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
007:003 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou
        shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take
        unto thy son.
007:004 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they
        may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled
        against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
007:005 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their
        altars, and break down their images, and cut down their
        groves, and burn their graven images with fire.
007:006 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD
        thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself,
        above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
007:007 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you,
        because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were
        the fewest of all people:
007:008 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the
        oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD
        brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of
        the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
007:009 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful
        God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him
        and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
007:010 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy
        them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will
        repay him to his face.
007:011 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes,
        and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
007:012 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these
        judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall
        keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto
        thy fathers:
007:013 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he
        will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy
        land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of
        thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he
        sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
007:014 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be
        male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.
007:015 And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will
        put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest,
        upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
007:016 And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God
        shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them:
        neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare
        unto thee.
007:017 If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than
        I; how can I dispossess them?
007:018 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what
        the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;
007:019 The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and
        the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm,
        whereby the LORD thy God brought thee out: so shall the LORD
        thy God do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid.
007:020 Moreover the LORD thy God will send the hornet among them,
        until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be
        destroyed.
007:021 Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God is
        among you, a mighty God and terrible.
007:022 And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by
        little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest
        the beasts of the field increase upon thee.
007:023 But the LORD thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall
        destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be
        destroyed.
007:024 And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou
        shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man
        be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.
007:025 The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou
        shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take
        it unto thee, lest thou be snared therin: for it is an
        abomination to the LORD thy God.
007:026 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest
        thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest
        it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
008:001 All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye
        observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and
        possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.
008:002 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led
        thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and
        to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou
        wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
008:003 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee
        with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers
        know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by
        bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth
        of the LORD doth man live.
008:004 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot
        swell, these forty years.
008:005 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man
        chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
008:006 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy
        God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
008:007 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of
        brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of
        valleys and hills;
008:008 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and
        pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;
008:009 A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou
        shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron,
        and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
008:010 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the
        LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
008:011 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping
        his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I
        command thee this day:
008:012 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly
        houses, and dwelt therein;
008:013 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and
        thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
008:014 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy
        God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from
        the house of bondage;
008:015 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness,
        wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where
        there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the
        rock of flint;
008:016 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers
        knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove
        thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
008:017 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine
        hand hath gotten me this wealth.
008:018 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that
        giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his
        covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
008:019 And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God,
        and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I
        testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
008:020 As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so
        shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the
        voice of the LORD your God.
009:001 Hear, O Israel: Thou art to pass over Jordan this day, to go
        in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself,
        cities great and fenced up to heaven,
009:002 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom
        thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand
        before the children of Anak!
009:003 Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he
        which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall
        destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so
        shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the
        LORD hath said unto thee.
009:004 Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God
        hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my
        righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this
        land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth
        drive them out from before thee.
009:005 Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine
        heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the
        wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them
        out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which
        the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
009:006 Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not
        this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou
        art a stiffnecked people.
009:007 Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God
        to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst
        depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this
        place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.
009:008 Also in Horeb ye provoked the LORD to wrath, so that the LORD
        was angry with you to have destroyed you.
009:009 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of
        stone, even the tables of the covenant which the LORD made
        with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty
        nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water:
009:010 And the LORD delivered unto me two tables of stone written
        with the finger of God; and on them was written according to
        all the words, which the LORD spake with you in the mount out
        of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.
009:011 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights,
        that the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables
        of the covenant.
009:012 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from
        hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of
        Egypt have corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside
        out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a
        molten image.
009:013 Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this
        people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
009:014 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name
        from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier
        and greater than they.
009:015 So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned
        with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two
        hands.
009:016 And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your
        God, and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside
        quickly out of the way which the LORD had commanded you.
009:017 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands,
        and brake them before your eyes.
009:018 And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days
        and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water,
        because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in
        the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
009:019 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith
        the LORD was wroth against you to destroy you. But the LORD
        hearkened unto me at that time also.
009:020 And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him:
        and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.
009:021 And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it
        with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even
        until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof
        into the brook that descended out of the mount.
009:022 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibrothhattaavah, ye
        provoked the LORD to wrath.
009:023 Likewise when the LORD sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go
        up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye
        rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye
        believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.
009:024 Ye have been rebellious against the LORD from the day that I
        knew you.
009:025 Thus I fell down before the LORD forty days and forty nights,
        as I fell down at the first; because the LORD had said he
        would destroy you.
009:026 I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD,
        destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast
        redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth
        out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
009:027 Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not
        unto the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness,
        nor to their sin:
009:028 Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the
        LORD was not able to bring them into the land which he
        promised them, and because he hated them, he hath brought them
        out to slay them in the wilderness.
009:029 Yet they are thy people and thine inheritance, which thou
        broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out
        arm.
010:001 At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of
        stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount,
        and make thee an ark of wood.
010:002 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the
        first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in
        the ark.
010:003 And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of
        stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having
        the two tables in mine hand.
010:004 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing,
        the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the
        mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly:
        and the LORD gave them unto me.
010:005 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the
        tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the
        LORD commanded me.
010:006 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of
        the children of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and there
        he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's
        office in his stead.
010:007 From thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to
        Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters.
010:008 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the
        ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to
        minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.
010:009 Wherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren;
        the LORD is his inheritance, according as the LORD thy God
        promised him.
010:010 And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty
        days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that
        time also, and the LORD would not destroy thee.
010:011 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, take thy journey before the
        people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I
        sware unto their fathers to give unto them.
010:012 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee,
        but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to
        love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and
        with all thy soul,
010:013 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which
        I command thee this day for thy good?
010:014 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD's thy
        God, the earth also, with all that therein is.
010:015 Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and
        he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as
        it is this day.
010:016 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no
        more stiffnecked.
010:017 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a
        great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not
        persons, nor taketh reward:
010:018 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and
        loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.
010:019 Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the
        land of Egypt.
010:020 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to
        him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.
010:021 He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee
        these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.
010:022 Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten
        persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars
        of heaven for multitude.
011:001 Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his
        charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his
        commandments, alway.
011:002 And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which
        have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of
        the LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his
        stretched out arm,
011:003 And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of
        Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;
011:004 And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and
        to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to
        overflow them as they pursued after you, and how the LORD hath
        destroyed them unto this day;
011:005 And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came into
        this place;
011:006 And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the
        son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed
        them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the
        substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all
        Israel:
011:007 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which
        he did.
011:008 Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command
        you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the
        land, whither ye go to possess it;
011:009 And that ye may prolong your days in the land, which the LORD
        sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a
        land that floweth with milk and honey.
011:010 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as
        the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst
        thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of
        herbs:
011:011 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills
        and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
011:012 A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD
        thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year
        even unto the end of the year.
011:013 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto
        my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD
        your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all
        your soul,
011:014 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season,
        the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in
        thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
011:015 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou
        mayest eat and be full.
011:016 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and
        ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
011:017 And then the LORD's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut
        up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield
        not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good
        land which the LORD giveth you.
011:018 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in
        your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they
        may be as frontlets between your eyes.
011:019 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when
        thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way,
        when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
011:020 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house,
        and upon thy gates:
011:021 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your
        children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers
        to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
011:022 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I
        command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in
        all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
011:023 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before
        you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than
        yourselves.
011:024 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall
        be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the
        river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast
        be.
011:025 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD
        your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon
        all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto
        you.
011:026 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
011:027 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God,
        which I command you this day:
011:028 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD
        your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you
        this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
011:029 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God hath brought
        thee in unto the land whither thou goest to possess it, that
        thou shalt put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse
        upon mount Ebal.
011:030 Are they not on the other side Jordan, by the way where the
        sun goeth down, in the land of the Canaanites, which dwell in
        the champaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh?
011:031 For ye shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land
        which the LORD your God giveth you, and ye shall possess it,
        and dwell therein.
011:032 And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments
        which I set before you this day.
012:001 These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe
        to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth
        thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.
012:002 Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations
        which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high
        mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
012:003 And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars,
        and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the
        graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out
        of that place.
012:004 Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God.
012:005 But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of
        all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his
        habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:
012:006 And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your
        sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand,
        and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings
        of your herds and of your flocks:
012:007 And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall
        rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your
        households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
012:008 Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day,
        every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.
012:009 For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance,
        which the LORD your God giveth you.
012:010 But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the
        LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you
        rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in
        safety;
012:011 Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall
        choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye
        bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your
        sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand,
        and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:
012:012 And ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God, ye, and your
        sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your
        maidservants, and the Levite that is within your gates;
        forasmuch as he hath no part nor inheritance with you.
012:013 Take heed to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt offerings
        in every place that thou seest:
012:014 But in the place which the LORD shall choose in one of thy
        tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there
        thou shalt do all that I command thee.
012:015 Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy
        gates, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, according to the
        blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee: the
        unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and
        as of the hart.
012:016 Only ye shall not eat the blood; ye shall pour it upon the
        earth as water.
012:017 Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or
        of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or
        of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy
        freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand:
012:018 But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God in the place
        which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and
        thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the
        Levite that is within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before
        the LORD thy God in all that thou puttest thine hands unto.
012:019 Take heed to thyself that thou forsake not the Levite as long
        as thou livest upon the earth.
012:020 When the LORD thy God shall enlarge thy border, as he hath
        promised thee, and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, because
        thy soul longeth to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh,
        whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.
012:021 If the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to put his
        name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy
        herd and of thy flock, which the LORD hath given thee, as I
        have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates
        whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.
012:022 Even as the roebuck and the hart is eaten, so thou shalt eat
        them: the unclean and the clean shall eat of them alike.
012:023 Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the
        life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh.
012:024 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as
        water.
012:025 Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and with
        thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is
        right in the sight of the LORD.
012:026 Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou shalt
        take, and go unto the place which the LORD shall choose:
012:027 And thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, the flesh and the
        blood, upon the altar of the LORD thy God: and the blood of
        thy sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of the LORD
        thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh.
012:028 Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it
        may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for
        ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the
        sight of the LORD thy God.
012:029 When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before
        thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest
        them, and dwellest in their land;
012:030 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following
        them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that
        thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these
        nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
012:031 Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every
        abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto
        their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have
        burnt in the fire to their gods.
012:032 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt
        not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
013:001 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams,
        and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
013:002 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto
        thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not
        known, and let us serve them;
013:003 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that
        dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know
        whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with
        all your soul.
013:004 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep
        his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him,
        and cleave unto him.
013:005 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to
        death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD
        your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and
        redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out
        of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in.
        So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.
013:006 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy
        daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as
        thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and
        serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy
        fathers;
013:007 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you,
        nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the
        earth even unto the other end of the earth;
013:008 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither
        shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither
        shalt thou conceal him:
013:009 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon
        him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the
        people.
013:010 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he
        hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which
        brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of
        bondage.
013:011 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any
        such wickedness as this is among you.
013:012 If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which the LORD
        thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying,
013:013 Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among
        you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying,
        Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known;
013:014 Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently;
        and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such
        abomination is wrought among you;
013:015 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the
        edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is
        therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
013:016 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of
        the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all
        the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it
        shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again.
013:017 And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine
        hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger,
        and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and
        multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
013:018 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to
        keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do
        that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.
014:001 Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut
        yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the
        dead.
014:002 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the
        LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself,
        above all the nations that are upon the earth.
014:003 Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.
014:004 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep,
        and the goat,
014:005 The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild
        goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.
014:006 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft
        into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye
        shall eat.
014:007 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud,
        or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the
        hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the
        hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you.
014:008 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not
        the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their
        flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.
014:009 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that
        have fins and scales shall ye eat:
014:010 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is
        unclean unto you.
014:011 Of all clean birds ye shall eat.
014:012 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and
        the ossifrage, and the ospray,
014:013 And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind,
014:014 And every raven after his kind,
014:015 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk
        after his kind,
014:016 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,
014:017 And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant,
014:018 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing,
        and the bat.
014:019 And every creeping thing that flieth is unclean unto you: they
        shall not be eaten.
014:020 But of all clean fowls ye may eat.
014:021 Ye shall not eat of anything that dieth of itself: thou shalt
        give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may
        eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art an
        holy people unto the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid
        in his mother's milk.
014:022 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the
        field bringeth forth year by year.
014:023 And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which
        he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy
        corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy
        herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the
        LORD thy God always.
014:024 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able
        to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the
        LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD
        thy God hath blessed thee:
014:025 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in
        thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God
        shall choose:
014:026 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul
        lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for
        strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou
        shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt
        rejoice, thou, and thine household,
014:027 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not
        forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.
014:028 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe
        of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within
        thy gates:
014:029 And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with
        thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow,
        which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be
        satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the
        work of thine hand which thou doest.
015:001 At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.
015:002 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that
        lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall
        not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it
        is called the LORD's release.
015:003 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is
        thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;
015:004 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall
        greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth
        thee for an inheritance to possess it:
015:005 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy
        God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command
        thee this day.
015:006 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and
        thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow;
        and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not
        reign over thee.
015:007 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within
        any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth
        thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand
        from thy poor brother:
015:008 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely
        lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.
015:009 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart,
        saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and
        thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest
        him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be
        sin unto thee.
015:010 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be
        grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing
        the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all
        that thou puttest thine hand unto.
015:011 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I
        command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy
        brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
015:012 And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold
        unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year
        thou shalt let him go free from thee.
015:013 And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not
        let him go away empty:
015:014 Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of
        thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the
        LORD thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him.
015:015 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land
        of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I
        command thee this thing to day.
015:016 And it shall be, if he say unto thee, I will not go away from
        thee; because he loveth thee and thine house, because he is
        well with thee;
015:017 Then thou shalt take an aul, and thrust it through his ear
        unto the door, and he shall be thy servant for ever. And also
        unto thy maidservant thou shalt do likewise.
015:018 It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou sendest him away
        free from thee; for he hath been worth a double hired servant
        to thee, in serving thee six years: and the LORD thy God shall
        bless thee in all that thou doest.
015:019 All the firstling males that come of thy herd and of thy flock
        thou shalt sanctify unto the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no
        work with the firstling of thy bullock, nor shear the
        firstling of thy sheep.
015:020 Thou shalt eat it before the LORD thy God year by year in the
        place which the LORD shall choose, thou and thy household.
015:021 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or
        blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it
        unto the LORD thy God.
015:022 Thou shalt eat it within thy gates: the unclean and the clean
        person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart.
015:023 Only thou shalt not eat the blood thereof; thou shalt pour it
        upon the ground as water.
016:001 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD
        thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought
        thee forth out of Egypt by night.
016:002 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy
        God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD
        shall choose to place his name there.
016:003 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt
        thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of
        affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in
        haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest
        forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
016:004 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy
        coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh,
        which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all
        night until the morning.
016:005 Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy
        gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:
016:006 But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place
        his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even,
        at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest
        forth out of Egypt.
016:007 And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which the LORD
        thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and
        go unto thy tents.
016:008 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh
        day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt
        do no work therein.
016:009 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the
        seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle
        to the corn.
016:010 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God
        with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which
        thou shalt give unto the LORD thy God, according as the LORD
        thy God hath blessed thee:
016:011 And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy
        son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy
        maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the
        stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among
        you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place
        his name there.
016:012 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and
        thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
016:013 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after
        that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
016:014 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and
        thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the
        Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that
        are within thy gates.
016:015 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy
        God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD
        thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the
        works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.
016:016 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the
        LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast
        of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the
        feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the
        LORD empty:
016:017 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing
        of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.
016:018 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates,
        which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and
        they shall judge the people with just judgment.
016:019 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons,
        neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the
        wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
016:020 That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou
        mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God
        giveth thee.
016:021 Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the
        altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee.
016:022 Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy
        God hateth.
017:001 Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or
        sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that
        is an abomination unto the LORD thy God.
017:002 If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the
        LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought
        wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing
        his covenant,
017:003 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them,
        either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I
        have not commanded;
017:004 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired
        diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain,
        that such abomination is wrought in Israel:
017:005 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have
        committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or
        that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.
017:006 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he
        that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of
        one witness he shall not be put to death.
017:007 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him
        to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou
        shalt put the evil away from among you.
017:008 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between
        blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and
        stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then
        shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the
        LORD thy God shall choose;
017:009 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the
        judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall
        shew thee the sentence of judgment:
017:010 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of
        that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and
        thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform
        thee:
017:011 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach
        thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell
        thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence
        which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the
        left.
017:012 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken
        unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the
        LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and
        thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.
017:013 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more
        presumptuously.
017:014 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth
        thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt
        say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that
        are about me;
017:015 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD
        thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou
        set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee,
        which is not thy brother.
017:016 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the
        people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply
        horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall
        henceforth return no more that way.
017:017 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart
        turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself
        silver and gold.
017:018 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his
        kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book
        out of that which is before the priests the Levites:
017:019 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the
        days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God,
        to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do
        them:
017:020 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that
        he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or
        to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his
        kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
018:001 The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have
        no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the
        offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.
018:002 Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren:
        the LORD is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.
018:003 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them
        that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they
        shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks,
        and the maw.
018:004 The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine
        oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give
        him.
018:005 For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to
        stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons
        for ever.
018:006 And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel,
        where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind
        unto the place which the LORD shall choose;
018:007 Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as all
        his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the
        LORD.
018:008 They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh
        of the sale of his patrimony.
018:009 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth
        thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of
        those nations.
018:010 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son
        or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth
        divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a
        witch.
018:011 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a
        wizard, or a necromancer.
018:012 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD:
        and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive
        them out from before thee.
018:013 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
018:014 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto
        observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the
        LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
018:015 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the
        midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye
        shall hearken;
018:016 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in
        Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear
        again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this
        great fire any more, that I die not.
018:017 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which
        they have spoken.
018:018 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like
        unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall
        speak unto them all that I shall command him.
018:019 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken
        unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require
        it of him.
018:020 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my
        name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall
        speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
018:021 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word
        which the LORD hath not spoken?
018:022 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing
        follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD
        hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it
        presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
019:001 When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land the
        LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and
        dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;
019:002 Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy
        land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.
019:003 Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy
        land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into
        three parts, that every slayer may flee thither.
019:004 And this is the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither,
        that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom
        he hated not in time past;
019:005 As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew
        wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down
        the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth
        upon his neighbour, that he die; he shall flee unto one of
        those cities, and live:
019:006 Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his
        heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and
        slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he
        hated him not in time past.
019:007 Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three
        cities for thee.
019:008 And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn
        unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised
        to give unto thy fathers;
019:009 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I
        command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk
        ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for
        thee, beside these three:
019:010 That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD
        thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon
        thee.
019:011 But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him,
        and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die,
        and fleeth into one of these cities:
019:012 Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence,
        and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he
        may die.
019:013 Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the
        guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with
        thee.
019:014 Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of
        old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt
        inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to
        possess it.
019:015 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity,
        or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of
        two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the
        matter be established.
019:016 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against
        him that which is wrong;
019:017 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall
        stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges,
        which shall be in those days;
019:018 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold,
        if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely
        against his brother;
019:019 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto
        his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.
019:020 And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall
        henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.
019:021 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye
        for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
020:001 When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest
        horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not
        afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which
        brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
020:002 And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that
        the priest shall approach and speak unto the people,
020:003 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day
        unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint,
        fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because
        of them;
020:004 For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for
        you against your enemies, to save you.
020:005 And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What man
        is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated
        it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the
        battle, and another man dedicate it.
020:006 And what man is he that hath planted a vineyard, and hath not
        yet eaten of it? let him also go and return unto his house,
        lest he die in the battle, and another man eat of it.
020:007 And what man is there that hath betrothed a wife, and hath not
        taken her? let him go and return unto his house, lest he die
        in the battle, and another man take her.
020:008 And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they
        shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted?
        let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren's
        heart faint as well as his heart.
020:009 And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of
        speaking unto the people that they shall make captains of the
        armies to lead the people.
020:010 When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then
        proclaim peace unto it.
020:011 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open
        unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that is found
        therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve
        thee.
020:012 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war
        against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:
020:013 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands,
        thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the
        sword:
020:014 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all
        that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou
        take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine
        enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
020:015 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off
        from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.
020:016 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth
        give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing
        that breatheth:
020:017 But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and
        the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites,
        and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:
020:018 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations,
        which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against
        the LORD your God.
020:019 When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war
        against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees
        thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of
        them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the
        field is man's life) to employ them in the siege:
020:020 Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for
        meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt
        build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee,
        until it be subdued.
021:001 If one be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God
        giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field, and it be not
        known who hath slain him:
021:002 Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth, and they
        shall measure unto the cities which are round about him that
        is slain:
021:003 And it shall be, that the city which is next unto the slain
        man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which
        hath not been wrought with, and which hath not drawn in the
        yoke;
021:004 And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer unto a
        rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown, and shall
        strike off the heifer's neck there in the valley:
021:005 And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them the
        LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in
        the name of the LORD; and by their word shall every
        controversy and every stroke be tried:
021:006 And all the elders of that city, that are next unto the slain
        man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded
        in the valley:
021:007 And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this
        blood, neither have our eyes seen it.
021:008 Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast
        redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of
        Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them.
021:009 So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among
        you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of
        the LORD.
021:010 When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the
        LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou
        hast taken them captive,
021:011 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a
        desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;
021:012 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall
        shave her head, and pare her nails;
021:013 And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her,
        and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her
        mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her,
        and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife.
021:014 And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou
        shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her
        at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her,
        because thou hast humbled her.
021:015 If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and
        they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated;
        and if the firstborn son be hers that was hated:
021:016 Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit that
        which he hath, that he may not make the son of the beloved
        firstborn before the son of the hated, which is indeed the
        firstborn:
021:017 But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the
        firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath:
        for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the
        firstborn is his.
021:018 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not
        obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and
        that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto
        them:
021:019 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and
        bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate
        of his place;
021:020 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son
        is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is
        a glutton, and a drunkard.
021:021 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that
        he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all
        Israel shall hear, and fear.
021:022 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be
        to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree:
021:023 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou
        shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is
        accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD
        thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
022:001 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray,
        and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them
        again unto thy brother.
022:002 And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him
        not, then thou shalt bring it unto thine own house, and it
        shall be with thee until thy brother seek after it, and thou
        shalt restore it to him again.
022:003 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou
        do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's,
        which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou do
        likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.
022:004 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by
        the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt surely help
        him to lift them up again.
022:005 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man,
        neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do
        so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
022:006 If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any
        tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs,
        and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou
        shalt not take the dam with the young:
022:007 But thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the young
        to thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest
        prolong thy days.
022:008 When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a
        battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine
        house, if any man fall from thence.
022:009 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the
        fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy
        vineyard, be defiled.
022:010 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.
022:011 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen
        and linen together.
022:012 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy
        vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.
022:013 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,
022:014 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil
        name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to
        her, I found her not a maid:
022:015 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and
        bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the
        elders of the city in the gate:
022:016 And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my
        daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;
022:017 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her,
        saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the
        tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the
        cloth before the elders of the city.
022:018 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise
        him;
022:019 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and
        give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath
        brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall
        be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
022:020 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not
        found for the damsel:
022:021 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her
        father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with
        stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel,
        to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put
        evil away from among you.
022:022 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband,
        then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with
        the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from
        Israel.
022:023 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and
        a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
022:024 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city,
        and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel,
        because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because
        he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away
        evil from among you.
022:025 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man
        force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with
        her shall die.
022:026 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the
        damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth
        against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this
        matter:
022:027 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried,
        and there was none to save her.
022:028 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not
        betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be
        found;
022:029 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's
        father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife;
        because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his
        days.
022:030 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor discover his
        father's skirt.
023:001 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut
        off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.
023:002 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD;
        even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the
        congregation of the LORD.
023:003 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation
        of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not
        enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:
023:004 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way,
        when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired
        against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia,
        to curse thee.
023:005 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam;
        but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto
        thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee.
023:006 Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy
        days for ever.
023:007 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he is thy brother: thou
        shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in
        his land.
023:008 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the
        congregation of the LORD in their third generation.
023:009 When the host goeth forth against thine enemies, then keep
        thee from every wicked thing.
023:010 If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of
        uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go
        abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:
023:011 But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash himself
        with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the
        camp again.
023:012 Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou
        shalt go forth abroad:
023:013 And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be,
        when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith,
        and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:
023:014 For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to
        deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee;
        therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing
        in thee, and turn away from thee.
023:015 Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant which is
        escaped from his master unto thee:
023:016 He shall dwell with thee, even among you, in that place which
        he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it liketh him best:
        thou shalt not oppress him.
023:017 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a
        sodomite of the sons of Israel.
023:018 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a
        dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even
        both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
023:019 Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money,
        usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
023:020 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy
        brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God
        may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the
        land whither thou goest to possess it.
023:021 When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt
        not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require
        it of thee; and it would be sin in thee.
023:022 But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee.
023:023 That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and
        perform; even a freewill offering, according as thou hast
        vowed unto the LORD thy God, which thou hast promised with thy
        mouth.
023:024 When thou comest into thy neighbour's vineyard, then thou
        mayest eat grapes thy fill at thine own pleasure; but thou
        shalt not put any in thy vessel.
023:025 When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbour, then
        thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand; but thou shalt not
        move a sickle unto thy neighbour's standing corn.
024:001 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to
        pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath
        found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill
        of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of
        his house.
024:002 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be
        another man's wife.
024:003 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of
        divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of
        his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be
        his wife;
024:004 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her
        again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is
        abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land
        to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
024:005 When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war,
        neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be
        free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he
        hath taken.
024:006 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge:
        for he taketh a man's life to pledge.
024:007 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children
        of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then
        that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among
        you.
024:008 Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe
        diligently, and do according to all that the priests the
        Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so ye shall
        observe to do.
024:009 Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way,
        after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.
024:010 When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go
        into his house to fetch his pledge.
024:011 Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend
        shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.
024:012 And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:
024:013 In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the
        sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and
        bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the
        LORD thy God.
024:014 Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and
        needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that
        are in thy land within thy gates:
024:015 At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun
        go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon
        it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto
        thee.
024:016 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children,
        neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers:
        every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
024:017 Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of
        the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:
024:018 But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and
        the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command
        thee to do this thing.
024:019 When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast
        forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch
        it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for
        the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the
        work of thine hands.
024:020 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the
        boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the
        fatherless, and for the widow.
024:021 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not
        glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the
        fatherless, and for the widow.
024:022 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land
        of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
025:001 If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto
        judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall
        justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
025:002 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten,
        that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten
        before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.
025:003 Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he
        should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes,
        then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.
025:004 Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.
025:005 If brethren dwell together, and one of them die, and have no
        child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a
        stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take
        her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's
        brother unto her.
025:006 And it shall be, that the firstborn which she beareth shall
        succeed in the name of his brother which is dead, that his
        name be not put out of Israel.
025:007 And if the man like not to take his brother's wife, then let
        his brother's wife go up to the gate unto the elders, and say,
        My husband's brother refuseth to raise up unto his brother a
        name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's
        brother.
025:008 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto
        him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;
025:009 Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of
        the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in
        his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto
        that man that will not build up his brother's house.
025:010 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that
        hath his shoe loosed.
025:011 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the
        one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of
        him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh
        him by the secrets:
025:012 Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity
        her.
025:013 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a
        small.
025:014 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great
        and a small.
025:015 But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and
        just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened
        in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
025:016 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously,
        are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.
025:017 Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were
        come forth out of Egypt;
025:018 How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee,
        even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint
        and weary; and he feared not God.
025:019 Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee
        rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the
        LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it,
        that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under
        heaven; thou shalt not forget it.
026:001 And it shall be, when thou art come in unto the land which the
        LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and possessest
        it, and dwellest therein;
026:002 That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the
        earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy
        God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go
        unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place
        his name there.
026:003 And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those days,
        and say unto him, I profess this day unto the LORD thy God,
        that I am come unto the country which the LORD sware unto our
        fathers for to give us.
026:004 And the priest shall take the basket out of thine hand, and
        set it down before the altar of the LORD thy God.
026:005 And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian
        ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt,
        and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation,
        great, mighty, and populous:
026:006 And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and
        laid upon us hard bondage:
026:007 And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD
        heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labour,
        and our oppression:
026:008 And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand,
        and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and
        with signs, and with wonders:
026:009 And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this
        land, even a land that floweth with milk and honey.
026:010 And now, behold, I have brought the 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 LORD thy God:
026:011 And thou shalt rejoice in every good thing which the LORD thy
        God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house, thou, and the
        Levite, and the stranger that is among you.
026:012 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 Levite, the stranger, the fatherless,
        and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be
        filled;
026:013 Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought
        away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have
        given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the
        fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy
        commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not
        transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them.
026:014 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 hearkened to the voice of the
        LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast
        commanded me.
026:015 Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy
        people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou
        swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and
        honey.
026:016 This day the 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.
026:017 Thou hast avouched the 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 hearken unto his
        voice:
026:018 And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar
        people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep
        all his commandments;
026:019 And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in
        praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an
        holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.
027:001 And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people,
        saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this
        day.
027:002 And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan unto
        the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, that thou shalt
        set thee up great stones, and plaister them with plaister:
027:003 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when
        thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land
        which the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with
        milk and honey; as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised
        thee.
027:004 Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, that ye
        shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in
        mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaister them with plaister.
027:005 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an
        altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon
        them.
027:006 Thou shalt build the altar of the LORD thy God of whole
        stones: and thou shalt offer burnt offerings thereon unto the
        LORD thy God:
027:007 And thou shalt offer peace offerings, and shalt eat there, and
        rejoice before the LORD thy God.
027:008 And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law
        very plainly.
027:009 And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel,
        saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art
        become the people of the LORD thy God.
027:010 Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and
        do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee
        this day.
027:011 And Moses charged the people the same day, saying,
027:012 These shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people, when
        ye are come over Jordan; Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and
        Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin:
027:013 And these shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse; Reuben, Gad,
        and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.
027:014 And the Levites shall speak, and say unto all the men of
        Israel with a loud voice,
027:015 Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an
        abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the
        craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the
        people shall answer and say, Amen.
027:016 Cursed be he that setteth light by his father or his mother.
        And all the people shall say, Amen.
027:017 Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour's landmark. And all
        the people shall say, Amen.
027:018 Cursed be he that maketh the blind to wander out of the way.
        And all the people shall say, Amen.
027:019 Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger,
        fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.
027:020 Cursed be he that lieth with his father's wife; because he
        uncovereth his father's skirt. And all the people shall say,
        Amen.
027:021 Cursed be he that lieth with any manner of beast. And all the
        people shall say, Amen.
027:022 Cursed be he that lieth with his sister, the daughter of his
        father, or the daughter of his mother. And all the people
        shall say, Amen.
027:023 Cursed be he that lieth with his mother in law. And all the
        people shall say, Amen.
027:024 Cursed be he that smiteth his neighbour secretly. And all the
        people shall say, Amen.
027:025 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.
        And all the people shall say, Amen.
027:026 Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to
        do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.
028:001 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently
        unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all
        his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD
        thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
028:002 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee,
        if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
028:003 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be
        in the field.
028:004 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy
        ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine,
        and the flocks of thy sheep.
028:005 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
028:006 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt
        thou be when thou goest out.
028:007 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee
        to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against
        thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
028:008 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy
        storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and
        he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth
        thee.
028:009 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as
        he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments
        of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
028:010 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by
        the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
028:011 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit
        of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit
        of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy
        fathers to give thee.
028:012 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to
        give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all
        the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations,
        and thou shalt not borrow.
028:013 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and
        thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if
        that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God,
        which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
028:014 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I
        command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to
        go after other gods to serve them.
028:015 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the
        voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his
        commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day;
        that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
028:016 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in
        the field.
028:017 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.
028:018 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy
        land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
028:019 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt
        thou be when thou goest out.
028:020 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke,
        in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou
        be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the
        wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
028:021 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he
        have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to
        possess it.
028:022 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a
        fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning,
        and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and
        they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
028:023 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the
        earth that is under thee shall be iron.
028:024 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from
        heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
028:025 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies:
        thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways
        before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the
        earth.
028:026 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and
        unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.
028:027 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the
        emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou
        canst not be healed.
028:028 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and
        astonishment of heart:
028:029 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in
        darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou
        shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall
        save thee.
028:030 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her:
        thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein:
        thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes
        thereof.
028:031 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not
        eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from
        before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep
        shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to
        rescue them.
028:032 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people,
        and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all
        the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.
028:033 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation
        which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only
        oppressed and crushed alway:
028:034 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which
        thou shalt see.
028:035 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with
        a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot
        unto the top of thy head.
028:036 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set
        over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers
        have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and
        stone.
028:037 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a
        byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
028:038 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt
        gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.
028:039 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither
        drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall
        eat them.
028:040 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but
        thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive
        shall cast his fruit.
028:041 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy
        them; for they shall go into captivity.
028:042 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
028:043 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very
        high; and thou shalt come down very low.
028:044 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he
        shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
028:045 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall
        pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed;
        because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy
        God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he
        commanded thee:
028:046 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and
        upon thy seed for ever.
028:047 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness,
        and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
028:048 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall
        send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness,
        and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron
        upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
028:049 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the
        end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose
        tongue thou shalt not understand;
028:050 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the
        person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
028:051 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy
        land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee
        either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or
        flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
028:052 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and
        fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all
        thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates
        throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given
        thee.
028:053 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of
        thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath
        given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith
        thine enemies shall distress thee:
028:054 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate,
        his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife
        of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he
        shall leave:
028:055 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his
        children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him
        in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies
        shall distress thee in all thy gates.
028:056 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not
        adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for
        delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the
        husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her
        daughter,
028:057 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her
        feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she
        shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege
        and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in
        thy gates.
028:058 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that
        are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious
        and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
028:059 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues
        of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and
        sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
028:060 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt,
        which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
028:061 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in
        the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee,
        until thou be destroyed.
028:062 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the
        stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey
        the voice of the LORD thy God.
028:063 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you
        to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice
        over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye
        shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to
        possess it.
028:064 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one
        end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt
        serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have
        known, even wood and stone.
028:065 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall
        the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee
        there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of
        mind:
028:066 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt
        fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
028:067 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at
        even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear
        of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of
        thine eyes which thou shalt see.
028:068 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by
        the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more
        again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for
        bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
029:001 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded
        Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab,
        beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.
029:002 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have
        seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of
        Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all
        his land;
029:003 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs,
        and those great miracles:
029:004 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes
        to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.
029:005 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes
        are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon
        thy foot.
029:006 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong
        drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.
029:007 And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon,
        and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle,
        and we smote them:
029:008 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto
        the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of
        Manasseh.
029:009 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that
        ye may prosper in all that ye do.
029:010 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God; your
        captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with
        all the men of Israel,
029:011 Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy
        camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:
029:012 That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the LORD thy God,
        and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee
        this day:
029:013 That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself,
        and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee,
        and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac,
        and to Jacob.
029:014 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;
029:015 But with him that standeth here with us this day before the
        LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this
        day:
029:016 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how
        we came through the nations which ye passed by;
029:017 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and
        stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)
029:018 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or
        tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our
        God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there
        should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;
029:019 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse,
        that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have
        peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add
        drunkenness to thirst:
029:020 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD
        and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the
        curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and
        the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.
029:021 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the
        tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant
        that are written in this book of the law:
029:022 So that the generation to come of your children that shall
        rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far
        land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and
        the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it;
029:023 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and
        burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass
        groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah,
        Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and
        in his wrath:
029:024 Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus
        unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?
029:025 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of
        the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he
        brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:
029:026 For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods
        whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them:
029:027 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to
        bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:
029:028 And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in
        wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another
        land, as it is this day.
029:029 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those
        things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children
        for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
030:001 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon
        thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before
        thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations,
        whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,
030:002 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his
        voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and
        thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
030:003 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have
        compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all
        the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.
030:004 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of
        heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and
        from thence will he fetch thee:
030:005 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy
        fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do
        thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
030:006 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the
        heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine
        heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
030:007 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine
        enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
030:008 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do
        all his commandments which I command thee this day.
030:009 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of
        thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy
        cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD
        will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy
        fathers:
030:010 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to
        keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in
        this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God
        with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
030:011 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not
        hidden from thee, neither is it far off.
030:012 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up
        for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it,
        and do it?
030:013 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who
        shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we
        may hear it, and do it?
030:014 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy
        heart, that thou mayest do it.
030:015 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death
        and evil;
030:016 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to
        walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his
        statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and
        multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land
        whither thou goest to possess it.
030:017 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but
        shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
030:018 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and
        that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither
        thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
030:019 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I
        have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
        therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
030:020 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest
        obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he
        is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest
        dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to
        Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
031:001 And Moses went and spake these words unto all Israel.
031:002 And he said unto them, I am an hundred and twenty years old
        this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the LORD hath
        said unto me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan.
031:003 The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, and he will
        destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess
        them: and Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD
        hath said.
031:004 And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to Og,
        kings of the Amorites, and unto the land of them, whom he
        destroyed.
031:005 And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may
        do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have
        commanded you.
031:006 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of
        them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee;
        he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
031:007 And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight
        of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must
        go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn
        unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to
        inherit it.
031:008 And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be
        with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear
        not, neither be dismayed.
031:009 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests
        the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the
        LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.
031:010 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven
        years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast
        of tabernacles,
031:011 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in
        the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law
        before all Israel in their hearing.
031:012 Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and
        thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and
        that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe
        to do all the words of this law:
031:013 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may
        hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live
        in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
031:014 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that
        thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the
        tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge.
        And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the
        tabernacle of the congregation.
031:015 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a
        cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the
        tabernacle.
031:016 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with
        thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring
        after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go
        to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant
        which I have made with them.
031:017 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I
        will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they
        shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall
        them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils
        come upon us, because our God is not among us?
031:018 And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils
        which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto
        other gods.
031:019 Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the
        children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may
        be a witness for me against the children of Israel.
031:020 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware
        unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they
        shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then
        will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke
        me, and break my covenant.
031:021 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are
        befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a
        witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of
        their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about,
        even now, before I have brought them into the land which I
        sware.
031:022 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it
        the children of Israel.
031:023 And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be
        strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the
        children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and
        I will be with thee.
031:024 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the
        words of this law in a book, until they were finished,
031:025 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the
        covenant of the LORD, saying,
031:026 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark
        of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for
        a witness against thee.
031:027 For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I
        am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious
        against the LORD; and how much more after my death?
031:028 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your
        officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call
        heaven and earth to record against them.
031:029 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt
        yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded
        you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye
        will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger
        through the work of your hands.
031:030 And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel
        the words of this song, until they were ended.
032:001 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth,
        the words of my mouth.
032:002 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as
        the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the
        showers upon the grass:
032:003 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye
        greatness unto our God.
032:004 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are
        judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right
        is he.
032:005 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of
        his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
032:006 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is
        not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made
        thee, and established thee?
032:007 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many
        generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy
        elders, and they will tell thee.
032:008 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance,
        when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the
        people according to the number of the children of Israel.
032:009 For the LORD's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his
        inheritance.
032:010 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling
        wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him
        as the apple of his eye.
032:011 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young,
        spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her
        wings:
032:012 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god
        with him.
032:013 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he
        might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck
        honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
032:014 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams
        of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of
        wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
032:015 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou
        art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he
        forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of
        his salvation.
032:016 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with
        abominations provoked they him to anger.
032:017 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they
        knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers
        feared not.
032:018 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast
        forgotten God that formed thee.
032:019 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the
        provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
032:020 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what
        their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation,
        children in whom is no faith.
032:021 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God;
        they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will
        move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I
        will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
032:022 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the
        lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase,
        and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
032:023 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon
        them.
032:024 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning
        heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth
        of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
032:025 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the
        young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of
        gray hairs.
032:026 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the
        remembrance of them to cease from among men:
032:027 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their
        adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they
        should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all
        this.
032:028 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any
        understanding in them.
032:029 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they
        would consider their latter end!
032:030 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to
        flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut
        them up?
032:031 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves
        being judges.
032:032 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of
        Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are
        bitter:
032:033 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of
        asps.
032:034 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my
        treasures?
032:035 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall
        slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand,
        and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
032:036 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for
        his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and
        there is none shut up, or left.
032:037 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom
        they trusted,
032:038 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine
        of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and
        be your protection.
032:039 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I
        kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there
        any that can deliver out of my hand.
032:040 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.
032:041 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on
        judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will
        reward them that hate me.
032:042 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall
        devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the
        captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
032:043 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the
        blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his
        adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his
        people.
032:044 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the
        ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.
032:045 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all
        Israel:
032:046 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words
        which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command
        your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.
032:047 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life:
        and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land,
        whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
032:048 And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,
032:049 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which
        is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and
        behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of
        Israel for a possession:
032:050 And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered
        unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and
        was gathered unto his people:
032:051 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel
        at the waters of MeribahKadesh, in the wilderness of Zin;
        because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of
        Israel.
032:052 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go
        thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.
033:001 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God
        blessed the children of Israel before his death.
033:002 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir
        unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with
        ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law
        for them.
033:003 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and
        they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy
        words.
033:004 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the
        congregation of Jacob.
033:005 And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and
        the tribes of Israel were gathered together.
033:006 Let Reuben live, and not die; and let not his men be few.
033:007 And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said, Hear, LORD,
        the voice of Judah, and bring him unto his people: let his
        hands be sufficient for him; and be thou an help to him from
        his enemies.
033:008 And of Levi he said, Let thy Thummim and thy Urim be with thy
        holy one, whom thou didst prove at Massah, and with whom thou
        didst strive at the waters of Meribah;
033:009 Who said unto his father and to his mother, I have not seen
        him; neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor knew his own
        children: for they have observed thy word, and kept thy
        covenant.
033:010 They shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law: they
        shall put incense before thee, and whole burnt sacrifice upon
        thine altar.
033:011 Bless, LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands;
        smite through the loins of them that rise against him, and of
        them that hate him, that they rise not again.
033:012 And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of the LORD shall dwell
        in safety by him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day
        long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.
033:013 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the LORD be his land, for
        the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep
        that coucheth beneath,
033:014 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for
        the precious things put forth by the moon,
033:015 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the
        precious things of the lasting hills,
033:016 And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof,
        and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the
        blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the
        head of him that was separated from his brethren.
033:017 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns
        are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the
        people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten
        thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.
033:018 And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in thy going out;
        and, Issachar, in thy tents.
033:019 They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall
        offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the
        abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.
033:020 And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlargeth Gad: he
        dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the
        head.
033:021 And he provided the first part for himself, because there, in
        a portion of the lawgiver, was he seated; and he came with the
        heads of the people, he executed the justice of the LORD, and
        his judgments with Israel.
033:022 And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from
        Bashan.
033:023 And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with favour,
        and full with the blessing of the LORD: possess thou the west
        and the south.
033:024 And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let
        him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in
        oil.
033:025 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall
        thy strength be.
033:026 There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon
        the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.
033:027 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the
        everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from
        before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.
033:028 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob
        shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall
        drop down dew.
033:029 Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people
        saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the
        sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found
        liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
034:001 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of
        Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And
        the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,
034:002 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and
        all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,
034:003 And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the
        city of palm trees, unto Zoar.
034:004 And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware
        unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give
        it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine
        eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.
034:005 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of
        Moab, according to the word of the LORD.
034:006 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over
        against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto
        this day.
034:007 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died:
        his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.
034:008 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of
        Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for
        Moses were ended.
034:009 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom;
        for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of
        Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded
        Moses.
034:010 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses,
        whom the LORD knew face to face,
034:011 In all the signs and the wonders, which the LORD sent him to
        do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants,
        and to all his land,
034:012 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which
        Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.
