DEUTERONOMY CHAPTERS 1-10
ΟΥΤΟΙ οἱ λόγοι, οὓς ἐλάλησε Μωυσῆς παντὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ πρὸς δυσμαῖς πλησίον τῆς ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης ἀνὰ μέσον Φαρὰν Τοφὸλ καὶ Λοβὸν καὶ Αὐλὼν καὶ Καταχρύσεα·
2 ἕνδεκα ἡμερῶν ἐκ Χωρὴβ ὁδὸς ἐπ᾿ ὄρος Σηεὶρ ἕως Κάδης Βαρνή.
3 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ τεσσαρακοστῷ ἔτει ἐν τῷ ἑνδεκάτῳ μηνὶ μιᾷ τοῦ μηνὸς ἐλάλησε Μωυσῆς πρὸς πάντας υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Κύριος αὐτῷ πρὸς αὐτούς.
4 μετὰ τὸ πατάξαι Σηὼν βασιλέα ᾿Αμορραίων τὸν κατοικήσαντα ἐν ᾿Εσεβὼν καὶ τὸν ῍Ωγ βασιλέα τῆς Βασὰν τὸν κατοικήσαντα ἐν ᾿Ασταρὼθ καὶ ἐν ᾿Εδραΐν,
5 ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου ἐν γῇ Μωάβ, ἤρξατο Μωυσῆς διασαφῆσαι τὸν νόμον τοῦτον λέγων·
6 Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐλάλησεν ἡμῖν ἐν Χωρὴβ λέγων· ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν κατοικεῖν ἐν τῷ ὄρει τούτῳ·
7 ἐπιστράφητε καὶ ἀπάρατε ὑμεῖς καὶ εἰσπορεύεσθε εἰς ὄρος ᾿Αμορραίων καὶ πρὸς πάντας τοὺς περιοίκους ῎Αραβα, εἰς ὄρος καὶ πεδίον καὶ πρὸς λίβα καὶ παραλίαν γῆν Χαναναίων καὶ ᾿Αντιλίβανον ἕως τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ μεγάλου Εὐφράτου.
8 ἴδετε, παραδέδωκεν ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν τῆν γῆν· εἰσπορευθέντες κληρονομήσατε τὴν γῆν, ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν, τῷ ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ δοῦναι αὐτοῖς καὶ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτῶν μετ᾿ αὐτούς.
9 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων· οὐ δυνήσομαι μόνος φέρειν ὑμᾶς·
10 Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐπλήθυνεν ὑμᾶς, καὶ ἰδού ἐστε σήμερον ὡσεὶ τὰ ἄστρα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῷ πλήθει·
11 Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν προσθείη ὑμῖν ὡς ἐστὲ χιλιοπλασίως καὶ εὐλογήσαι ὑμᾶς, καθότι ἐλάλησεν ὑμῖν.
12 πῶς δυνήσομαι μόνος φέρειν τὸν κόπον ὑμῶν καὶ τὴν ὑπόστασιν ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς ἀντιλογίας ὑμῶν;
13 δότε ἑαυτοῖς ἄνδρας σοφοὺς καὶ ἐπιστήμονας καὶ συνετοὺς εἰς τὰς φυλὰς ὑμῶν, καὶ καταστήσω ἐφ᾿ ὑμῶν ἡγουμένους ὑμῶν.
14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθητέ μοι καὶ εἴπατε· καλὸν τὸ ρῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησας ποιῆσαι.
15 καὶ ἔλαβον ἐξ ὑμῶν ἄνδρας σοφοὺς καὶ ἐπιστήμονας καὶ συνετοὺς καὶ κατέστησα αὐτοὺς ἡγεῖσθαι ἐφ᾿ ὑμῶν χιλιάρχους καὶ ἑκατοντάρχους καὶ πεντηκοντάρχους καὶ δεκάρχους καὶ γραμματοεισαγωγεῖς τοῖς κριταῖς ὑμῶν.
16 καὶ ἐνετειλάμην τοῖς κριταῖς ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων· διακούετε ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν καὶ κρίνατε δικαίως ἀνὰ μέσον ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον ἀδελφοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον προσηλύτου αὐτοῦ.
17 οὐκ ἐπιγνώσῃ πρόσωπον ἐν κρίσει, κατὰ τὸν μικρὸν καὶ κατὰ τὸν μέγαν κρινεῖς, οὐ μὴ ὑποστείλῃ πρόσωπον ἀνθρώπου, ὅτι ἡ κρίσις τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐστι· καὶ τὸ ρῆμα, ὃ ἐὰν σκληρὸν ᾖ ἀφ᾿ ὑμῶν, ἀνοίσετε αὐτὸ ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ, καὶ ἀκούσομαι αὐτό.
18 καὶ ἐνετειλάμην ὑμῖν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ πάντας τοὺς λόγους, οὓς ποιήσετε.
19 καὶ ἀπάραντες ἐκ Χωρὴβ ἐπορεύθημεν πᾶσαν τὴν ἔρημον τὴν μεγάλην καὶ τὴν φοβερὰν ἐκείνην, ἣν εἴδετε, ὁδὸν ὄρους τοῦ ᾿Αμορραίου, καθότι ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἡμῖν, καὶ ἤλθομεν ἕως Κάδης Βαρνή.
20 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς ὑμᾶς· ἤλθατε ἕως τοῦ ὄρους τοῦ ᾿Αμορραίου, ὃ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν ὑμῖν.
21 ἴδετε, παραδέδωκεν ἡμῖν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν πρὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν τὴν γῆν· ἀναβάντες κληρονομήσατε, ὃν τρόπον εἶπε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν ὑμῖν· μὴ φοβεῖσθε μηδὲ δειλιάσητε.
22 καὶ προσήλθατέ μοι πάντες καὶ εἴπατε· ἀποστείλωμεν ἄνδρας προτέρους ἡμῶν, καὶ ἐφοδευσάτωσαν ἡμῖν τὴν γῆν καὶ ἀναγγειλάτωσαν ἡμῖν ἀπόκρισιν τὴν ὁδόν, δι᾿ ἧς ἀναβησόμεθα ἐν αὐτῇ, καὶ τὰς πόλεις εἰς ἃς εἰσπορευσόμεθα εἰς αὐτάς.
23 καὶ ἤρεσεν ἐναντίον μου τὸ ρῆμα, καὶ ἔλαβον ἐξ ὑμῶν δώδεκα ἄνδρας, ἄνδρα ἕνα κατὰ φυλήν.
24 καὶ ἐπιστραφέντες ἀνέβησαν εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἕως Φάραγγος βότρυος καὶ κατεσκόπευσαν αὐτήν.
25 καὶ ἐλάβοσαν ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ καρποῦ τῆς γῆς καὶ κατήνεγκαν πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ ἔλεγον· ἀγαθὴ ἡ γῆ, ἣν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν ἡμῖν.
26 καὶ οὐκ ἠθελήσατε ἀναβῆναι, ἀλλ᾿ ἠπειθήσατε τῷ ρήματι Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν
27 καὶ διεγογγύζετε ἐν ταῖς σκηναῖς ὑμῶν καὶ εἴπατε· διὰ τὸ μισεῖν Κύριον ἡμᾶς, ἐξήγαγεν ἡμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου παραδοῦναι ἡμᾶς εἰς χεῖρας ᾿Αμορραίων, ἐξολοθρεῦσαι ἡμᾶς.
28 ποῦ ἡμεῖς ἀναβαίνομεν; οἱ δὲ ἀδελφοὶ ὑμῶν ἀπέστησαν τὴν καρδίαν ὑμῶν λέγοντες· ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ δυνατώτερον ἡμῶν καὶ πόλεις μεγάλαι καὶ τετειχισμέναι ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, ἀλλὰ καὶ υἱοὺς γιγάντων ἑωράκαμεν ἐκεῖ.
29 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς ὑμᾶς· μὴ πτήξετε, μηδὲ φοβηθῆτε ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν·
30 Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν ὁ προπορευόμενος πρὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν αὐτὸς συνεκπολεμήσει αὐτοὺς μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησεν ὑμῖν ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ
31 καὶ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ, ἣν εἴδετε, ὁδὸν ὄρους τοῦ ᾿Αμορραίου, ὡς ἐτροφοφόρησέ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, ὡς εἴ τις τροφοφορήσαι ἄνθρωπος τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ, κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν ὁδὸν εἰς ἣν ἐπορεύθητε, ἕως ἤλθετε εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον.
32 καὶ ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ οὐκ ἐνεπιστεύσατε Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ ἡμῶν,
33 ὃς προπορεύεται πρότερος ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ἐκλέγεσθαι ὑμῖν τόπον, ὁδηγῶν ὑμᾶς ἐν πυρὶ νυκτός, δεικνύων ὑμῖν τὴν ὁδὸν καθ᾿ ἣν πορεύεσθε ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς, καὶ ἐν νεφέλῃ ἡμέρας.
34 καὶ ἤκουσε Κύριος τὴν φωνὴν τῶν λόγων ὑμῶν καὶ παροξυνθεὶς ὤμοσε λέγων·
35 εἰ ὄψεταί τις τῶν ἀνδρῶν τούτων τὴν γῆν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην, ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν,
36 πλὴν Χάλεβ υἱὸς ᾿Ιεφοννή, οὗτος ὄψεται αὐτήν, καὶ τούτῳ δώσω τὴν γῆν, ἐφ᾿ ἣν ἐπέβη, καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ διὰ τὸ προσκεῖσθαι αὐτὸν τὰ πρὸς Κύριον.
37 καὶ ἐμοὶ ἐθυμώθη Κύριος δι᾿ ὑμᾶς λέγων· οὐδὲ σὺ οὐ μὴ εἰσέλθῃς ἐκεῖ·
38 ᾿Ιησοῦς υἱὸς Ναυὴ ὁ παρεστηκώς σοι, οὗτος εἰσελεύσεται ἐκεῖ· αὐτὸν κατίσχυσον, ὅτι αὐτὸς κατακληρονομήσει αὐτὴν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ.
39 καὶ πᾶν παιδίον νέον, ὅστις οὐκ οἶδε σήμερον ἀγαθὸν ἢ κακόν, οὗτοι εἰσελεύσονται ἐκεῖ, καὶ τούτοις δώσω αὐτήν, καὶ αὐτοὶ κληρονομήσουσιν αὐτήν.
40 καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐπιστραφέντες ἐστρατοπεδεύσατε εἰς τὴν ἔρημον, ὁδὸν τὴν ἐπὶ τῆς ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης.
41 καὶ ἀπεκρίθητε καὶ εἴπατε· ἡμάρτομεν ἔναντι Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν· ἡμεῖς ἀναβάντες πολεμήσομεν κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἡμῖν. καὶ ἀναλαβόντες ἕκαστος τὰ σκεύη τὰ πολεμικὰ αὐτοῦ καὶ συναθροισθέντες ἀνεβαίνετε εἰς τὸ ὄρος.
42 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· εἰπὸν αὐτοῖς· οὐκ ἀναβήσεσθε οὐδὲ μὴ πολεμήσετε, οὐ γάρ εἰμι μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν· καὶ οὐ μὴ συντριβῆτε ἐνώπιον τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὑμῶν·
43 καὶ ἐλάλησα ὑμῖν, καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατέ μου καὶ παρέβητε τὸ ρῆμα Κυρίου καὶ παραβιασάμενοι ἀνέβητε εἰς τὸ ὄρος.
44 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ ᾿Αμορραῖος ὁ κατοικῶν ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκείνῳ εἰς συνάντησιν ὑμῖν καὶ κατεδίωξαν ὑμᾶς, ὡσεὶ ποιήσαισαν αἱ μέλισσαι, καὶ ἐτίτρωσκον ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ Σηεὶρ ἕως ῾Ερμᾶ.
45 καὶ καθίσαντες ἐκλαίετε ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν, καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσε Κύριος τῆς φωνῆς ὑμῶν οὐδὲ προσέσχεν ὑμῖν.
46 καὶ ἐνεκάθησθε ἐν Κάδης ἡμέρας πολλάς, ὅσας ποτὲ ἡμέρας ἐνεκάθησθε.
ΚΑΙ ἐπιστραφέντες ἀπῄραμεν εἰς τὴν ἔρημον, ὁδὸν θάλασσαν ἐρυθράν, ὃν τρόπον ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρός με, καὶ ἐκυκλώσαμεν τὸ ὄρος τὸ Σηεὶρ ἡμέρας πολλάς.
2 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με·
3 ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν κυκλοῦν τὸ ὄρος τοῦτο, ἐπιστράφητε οὖν ἐπὶ βορρᾶν·
4 καὶ τῷ λαῷ ἔντειλαι λέγων· ὑμεῖς παραπορεύεσθε διὰ τῶν ὁρίων τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν υἱῶν ῾Ησαῦ, οἳ κατοικοῦσιν ἐν Σηείρ, καὶ φοβηθήσονται ὑμᾶς καὶ εὐλαβηθήσονται ὑμᾶς σφόδρα.
5 μὴ συνάψητε πρὸς αὐτοὺς πόλεμον· οὐ γὰρ δῶ ὑμῖν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν οὐδὲ βῆμα ποδός, ὅτι ἐν κλήρῳ δέδωκα τοῖς υἱοῖς ῾Ησαῦ τὸ ὄρος τὸ Σηείρ.
6 ἀργυρίου βρώματα ἀγοράσατε παρ᾿ αὐτῶν καὶ φάγεσθε καὶ ὕδωρ μέτρῳ λήψεσθε παρ᾿ αὐτῶν ἀργυρίου καὶ πίεσθε·
7 ὁ γὰρ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν εὐλόγησέ σε ἐν παντὶ ἔργῳ τῶν χειρῶν σου· διάγνωθι πῶς διῆλθες τὴν ἔρημον τὴν μεγάλην καὶ τὴν φοβερὰν ἐκείνην· ἰδοὺ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου μετὰ σοῦ, οὐκ ἐπεδεήθης ρήματος.
8 καὶ παρήλθομεν τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ἡμῶν υἱοὺς ῾Ησαῦ, τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Σηεὶρ παρὰ τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν ῎Αραβα ἀπὸ Αἰλὼν καὶ ἀπὸ Γεσιὼν Γάβερκαὶ ἐπιστρέψαντες παρήλθομεν ὁδὸν ἔρημον Μωάβ.
9 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· μὴ ἐχθραίνετετοῖς Μωαβίταις καὶ μὴ συνάψητε πρὸς αὐτοὺς πόλεμον· οὐ γὰρ μὴ δῶ ὑμῖν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν ἐν κλήρῳ, τοῖς γὰρ υἱοῖς Λὼτ δέδωκα τὴν ᾿Αροὴρ κληρονομεῖν.
10 (οἱ ᾿Ομμὶν πρότεροι ἐνεκάθηντο ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ ἰσχύοντες, ὥσπερ οἱ ᾿Ενακίμ·
11 Ραφαΐν λογισθήσονται καὶ οὗτοι ὥσπερ καὶ οἱ ᾿Ενακίμ, καὶ οἱ Μωαβῖται ἐπονομάζουσιν αὐτοὺς ᾿Ομμίν.
12 καὶ ἐν Σηεὶρ ἐνεκάθητο ὁ Χορραῖος τὸ πρότερον, καὶ υἱοὶ ῾Ησαῦ ἀπώλεσαν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐξέτριψαν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾿ αὐτῶν, ὃν τρόπον ἐποίησεν ᾿Ισραὴλ τὴν γῆν τῆς κληρονομίας αὐτοῦ, ἣν δέδωκε Κύριος αὐτοῖς).
13 νῦν οὖν ἀνάστητε καὶ ἀπάρατε ὑμεῖς καὶ παραπορεύεσθε τὴν φάραγγα Ζαρέτ.
14 καὶ αἱ ἡμέραι, ἃς παρεπορεύθημεν ἀπὸ Κάδης Βαρνὴ ἕως οὗ παρήλθομεν τὴν φάραγγα Ζαρέτ, τριάκοντα καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη, ἕως οὗ διέπεσε πᾶσα γενεὰ ἀνδρῶν πολεμιστῶν ἀποθνήσκοντες ἐκ τῆς παρεμβολῆς, καθότι ὤμοσε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτοῖς·
15 καὶ ἡ χεὶρ τοῦ Θεοῦ ἦν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῖς ἐξαναλῶσαι αὐτοὺς ἐκ μέσου τῆς παρεμβολῆς, ἕως οὗ διέπεσαν.
16 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐπειδὴ ἔπεσαν πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ πολεμισταὶ ἀποθνήσκοντες ἐκ μέσου τοῦ λαοῦ,
17 καὶ ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρός με λέγων·
18 σὺ παραπορεύσῃ σήμερον τὰ ὅρια Μωὰβ τὴν Σηεὶρ
19 καὶ προσάξετε ἐγγὺς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμάν· μὴ ἐχθραίνετε αὐτοῖς μηδὲ συνάψητε αὐτοῖς εἰς πόλεμον· οὐ γὰρ μὴ δῶ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμάν σοι ἐν κλήρῳ, ὅτι τοῖς υἱοῖς Λὼτ δέδωκα αὐτὴν ἐν κλήρῳ.
20 (γῆ Ραφαΐν λογισθήσεται· καὶ γὰρ ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς κατῴκουν οἱ Ραφαΐν τὸ πρότερον, καὶ οἱ ᾿Αμμανῖται ἐπονομάζουσιν αὐτοὺς Ζομζομμίν,
21 ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ δυνατώτερον ὑμῶν, ὥσπερ καὶ οἱ ᾿Ενακίμ, καὶ ἀπώλεσεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν, καὶ κατεκληρονόμησαν καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾿ αὐτῶν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης·
22 ὥσπερ ἐποίησαν τοῖς υἱοῖς ῾Ησαῦ κατοικοῦσιν ἐν Σηείρ, ὃν τρόπον ἐξέτριψαν τὸν Χορραῖον ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ κατεκληρονόμησαν αὐτοὺς καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾿ αὐτῶν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης·
23 καὶ οἱ Εὐαῖοι οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ᾿Ασηδὼθ ἕως Γάζης, καὶ οἱ Καππάδοκες οἱ ἐξελθόντες ἐκ Καππαδοκίας ἐξέτριψαν αὐτοὺς καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἀντ᾿ αὐτῶν).
24 νῦν οὖν ἀνάστητε καὶ ἀπάρατε καὶ παρέλθατε ὑμεῖς τὴν φάραγγα ᾿Αρνῶν· ἰδοὺ παραδέδωκα εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου τὸν Σηὼν βασιλέα ᾿Εσεβὼν τὸν ᾿Αμορραῖον καὶ τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ· ἐνάρχου κληρονομεῖν, σύναπτε πρὸς αὐτὸν πόλεμον.
25 ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ ἐνάρχου δοῦναι τὸν τρόμον σου καὶ τὸν φόβον σου ἐπὶ προσώπου πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν τῶν ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, οἵτινες ἀκούσαντες τὸ ὄνομά σου ταραχθήσονται καὶ ὠδῖνας ἕξουσιν ἀπὸ προσώπου σου.
26 Καὶ ἀπέστειλα πρέσβεις ἐκ τῆς ἐρήμου Κεδαμὼθ πρὸς Σηὼν βασιλέα ᾿Εσεβὼν λόγοις εἰρηνικοῖς λέγων·
27 παρελεύσομαι διὰ τῆς γῆς σου, ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ πορεύσομαι, οὐκ ἐκκλινῶ δεξιὰ οὐδ᾿ ἀριστερά·
28 βρώματα ἀργυρίου ἀποδώσῃ μοι, καὶ φάγομαι, καὶ ὕδωρ ἀργυρίου ἀποδώσῃ μοι, καὶ πίομαι· πλὴν ὅτι παρελεύσομαι τοῖς ποσί,
29 καθὼς ἐποίησάν μοι οἱ υἱοὶ ῾Ησαῦ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Σηεὶρ καὶ οἱ Μωαβῖται οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ᾿Αροήρ, ἕως ἂν παρέλθω τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν ἡμῖν.
30 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησε Σηὼν βασιλεὺς ᾿Εσεβὼν παρελθεῖν ἡμᾶς δι᾿ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐσκλήρυνε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ καὶ κατίσχυσε τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ, ἵνα παραδοθῇ εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου ὡς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ.
31 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἰδοὺ ἦργμαι παραδοῦναι πρὸ προσώπου σου τὸν Σηὼν βασιλέα ᾿Εσεβὼν τὸν ᾿Αμορραῖον καὶ τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ· ἔναρξαι κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ.
32 καὶ ἐξῆλθε Σηὼν βασιλεὺς ᾿Εσεβὼν εἰς συνάντησιν ἡμῖν, αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ, εἰς πόλεμον εἰς ᾿Ιασσά.
33 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὸν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν πρὸ προσώπου ἡμῶν, καὶ ἐπατάξαμεν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ·
34 καὶ ἐκρατήσαμεν πασῶν τῶν πόλεων αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ καὶ ἐξωλοθρεύσαμεν πᾶσαν πόλιν ἑξῆς, καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν, οὐ κατελίπομεν ζωγρείαν·
35 πλὴν τὰ κτήνη ἐπρονομεύσαμεν καὶ τὰ σκῦλα τῶν πόλεων ἐλάβομεν.
36 ἐξ ᾿Αροήρ, ἥ ἐστι παρὰ τὸ χεῖλος χειμάρρου ᾿Αρνῶν, καὶ τὴν πόλιν τὴν οὖσαν ἐν τῇ φάραγγι καὶ ἕως ὄρους τοῦ Γαλαὰδ οὐκ ἐγενήθη πόλις, ἥτις διέφυγεν ἡμᾶς, τὰς πάσας παρέδωκε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν·
37 πλὴν ἐγγὺς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὰν οὐ προσήλθομεν, πάντα τὰ συγκυροῦντα χειμάρρου ᾿Ιαβὸκ καὶ τάς πόλεις τὰς ἐν τῇ ὀρεινῇ, καθότι ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἡμῖν.
ΚΑΙ ἐπιστραφέντες ἀνέβημεν ὁδὸν τὴν εἰς Βασάν, καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ῍Ωγ βασιλεὺς τῆς Βασὰν εἰς συνάντησιν ἡμῖν, αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ, εἰς πόλεμον εἰς ῾Εδραΐμ.
2 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· μὴ φοβηθῇς αὐτόν, ὅτι εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου παραδέδωκα αὐτὸν καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ποιήσεις αὐτῷ ὥσπερ ἐποίησας Σηὼν βασιλεῖ τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, ὃς κατῴκει ἐν ᾿Εσεβών.
3 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὸν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν, καὶ τὸν ῍Ωγ βασιλέα τῆς Βασὰν καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπατάξαμεν αὐτὸν ἕως τοῦ μὴ καταλιπεῖν αὐτοῦ σπέρμα.
4 καὶ ἐκρατήσαμεν πασῶν τῶν πόλεων αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ· οὐκ ἦν πόλις, ἣν οὐκ ἐλάβομεν παρ᾿ αὐτῶν, ἑξήκοντα πόλεις, πάντα τὰ περίχωρα ᾿Αργὸβ βασιλέως ῍Ωγ ἐν Βασάν,
5 πᾶσαι πόλεις ὀχυραί, τείχη ὑψηλά, πύλαι καὶ μοχλοί, πλὴν τῶν πόλεων τῶν Φερεζαίων τῶν πολλῶν σφόδρα.
6 ἐξωλοθρεύσαμεν αὐτούς, ὥσπερ ἐποιήσαμεν τὸν Σηὼν βασιλέα ᾿Εσεβών, καὶ ἐξωλοθρεύσαμεν πᾶσαν πόλιν ἑξῆς καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὰ παιδία·
7 καὶ πάντα τὰ κτήνη, καὶ τὰ σκῦλα τῶν πόλεων ἐπρονομεύσαμεν ἑαυτοῖς.
8 Καὶ ἐλάβομεν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ τὴν γῆν ἐκ χειρῶν δύο βασιλέων τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, οἳ ἦσαν πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου ἀπὸ τοῦ χειμάρρου ᾿Αρνῶν καὶ ἕως ᾿Αερμών
9 οἱ Φοίνικες ἐπονομάζουσι τὸ ᾿Αερμὼν Σανιώρ, καὶ ὁ ᾿Αμορραῖος ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτὸ Σανίρ,
10 πᾶσαι πόλεις Μισὼρ καὶ πᾶσα Γαλαὰδ καὶ πᾶσα Βασὰν ἕως ῾Ελχᾶ καὶ ῾Εδραΐμ, πόλεις βασιλείας τοῦ ῍Ωγ ἐν τῇ Βασάν.
11 ὅτι πλὴν ῍Ωγ βασιλεὺς Βασὰν κατελείφθη ἀπὸ τῶν Ραφαΐν· ἰδοὺ ἡ κλίνη αὐτοῦ κλίνη σιδηρᾶ, ἰδοὺ αὕτη ἐν τῇ ἄκρᾳ τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Αμμάν, ἐννέα πήχεων τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς καὶ τεσσάρων πήχεων τὸ εὖρος αὐτῆς ἐν πήχει ἀνδρός.
12 καὶ τὴν γῆν ἐκείνην ἐκληρονομήσαμεν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀπὸ ᾿Αροήρ, ἥ ἐστι παρὰ τὸ χεῖλος χειμάρρου ᾿Αρνῶν, καὶ τὸ ἥμισυ τοῦ ὄρους Γαλαὰδ καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτοῦ ἔδωκα τῷ Ρουβὴν καὶ τῷ Γάδ.
13 καὶ τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ Γαλαὰδ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν Βασὰν βασιλείαν ῍Ωγ ἔδωκα τῷ ἡμίσει φυλῆς Μανασσῆ καὶ πᾶσαν περίχωρον ᾿Αργόβ, πᾶσαν Βασὰν ἐκείνην· γῆ Ραφαΐν λογισθήσεται.
14 καὶ ᾿Ιαΐρ υἱὸς Μανασσῆ ἔλαβε πᾶσαν τὴν περίχωρον ᾿Αργὸβ ἕως τῶν ὁρίων Γαργασὶ καὶ Μαχαθί· ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτὰς ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ τὴν Βασὰν Αὐὼθ ᾿Ιαΐρ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης.
15 καὶ τῷ Μαχὶρ ἔδωκα τὴν Γαλαάδ.
16 καὶ τῷ Ρουβὴν καὶ τῷ Γὰδ δέδωκα ἀπὸ τῆς Γαλαὰδ ἕως χειμάρρου ᾿Αρνῶν (μέσον τοῦ χειμάρρου ὅριον) καὶ ἕως τοῦ ᾿Ιαβόκ· ὁ χειμάρρους ὅριον τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Αμμάν.
17 καὶ ἡ ῎Αραβα καὶ ὁ ᾿Ιορδάνης ὅριον Μαχαναρέθ, καὶ ἕως θαλάσσης ῎Αραβα, θαλάσσης ἁλυκῆς ὑπὸ ᾿Ασηδὼθ τὴν Φασγὰ ἀνατολῶν
18 καὶ ἐνετειλάμην ὑμῖν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων· Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν ἔδωκεν ὑμῖν τὴν γῆν ταύτην ἐν κλήρῳ· ἐνοπλισάμενοι προπορεύεσθε πρὸ προσώπου τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, πᾶς δυνατός·
19 πλὴν αἱ γυναῖκες ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ κτήνη ὑμῶν, οἶδα ὅτι πολλὰ κτήνη ὑμῖν, κατοικείτωσαν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ὑμῶν, αἷς ἔδωκα ὑμῖν,
20 ἕως ἂν καταπαύσῃ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν, ὥσπερ καὶ ὑμᾶς, καὶ κατακληρονομήσωσι καὶ οὗτοι τὴν γῆν, ἣν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν αὐτοῖς ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου, καὶ ἐπαναστραφήσεσθε ἕκαστος εἰς τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ, ἣν ἔδωκα ὑμῖν.
21 Καὶ τῷ ᾿Ιησοῖ ἐνετειλάμην ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων· οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν ἑωράκασι πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν τοῖς δυσὶ βασιλεῦσι τούτοις· οὕτως ποιήσει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν πάσας τὰς βασιλείας, ἐφ᾿ ἃς σὺ διαβαίνεις ἐκεῖ·
22 οὐ φοβηθήσεσθε ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν αὐτὸς πολεμήσει περὶ ὑμῶν.
23 καὶ ἐδεήθην Κυρίου ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων·
24 Κύριε Θεέ, σὺ ἤρξω δεῖξαι τῷ σῷ θεράποντι τὴν ἰσχύν σου καὶ τὴν δύναμίν σου καὶ τὴν χεῖρα τὴν κραταιὰν καὶ τὸν βραχίονα τὸν ὑψηλόν· τίς γάρ ἐστι Θεὸς ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἢ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὅστις ποιήσει καθὰ ἐποίησας σὺ καὶ κατὰ τὴν ἰσχύν σου;
25 διαβὰς οὖν ὄψομαι τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην τὴν οὖσαν πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου, τὸ ὄρος τοῦτο τὸ ἀγαθὸν καὶ τὸν ᾿Αντιλίβανον.
26 καὶ ὑπερεῖδε Κύριος ἐμὲ ἕνεκεν ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσέ μου, καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἱκανούσθω σοι, μὴ προσθῇς ἔτι λαλῆσαι τὸν λόγον τοῦτον·
27 ἀνάβηθι ἐπὶ τὴν κορυφὴν τοῦ Λελαξευμένου καὶ ἀναβλέψας τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου κατὰ θάλασσαν καὶ βορρᾶν καὶ λίβα καὶ ἀνατολὰς καὶ ἰδὲ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου, ὅτι οὐ διαβήσῃ τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην τοῦτον.
28 καὶ ἔντειλαι ᾿Ιησοῖ καὶ κατίσχυσον αὐτὸν καὶ παρακάλεσον αὐτόν, ὅτι οὗτος διαβήσεται πρὸ προσώπου τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου, καὶ οὗτος κατακληρονομήσει αὐτοῖς πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν, ἣν ἑώρακας.
29 καὶ ἐνεκαθήμεθα ἐν νάπῃ σύνεγγυς οἴκου Φογώρ.
ΚΑΙ νῦν, ᾿Ισραήλ, ἄκουε τῶν δικαιωμάτων καὶ τῶν κριμάτων, ὅσα ἐγὼ διδάσκω ὑμᾶς σήμερον ποιεῖν, ἵνα ζῆτε καὶ πολυπλασιασθῆτε καὶ εἰσελθόντες κληρονομήσητε τὴν γῆν, ἣν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν δίδωσιν ὑμῖν.
2 οὐ προσθήσετε πρὸς τὸ ρῆμα ὃ ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν, καὶ οὐκ ἀφελεῖτε ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ· φυλάσσεσθε τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν, ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον.
3 οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν ἑωράκασι πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν τῷ Βεελφεγώρ, ὅτι πᾶς ἄνθρωπος, ὅστις ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω Βεελφεγώρ, ἐξέτριψεν αὐτὸν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐξ ὑμῶν.
4 ὑμεῖς δὲ οἱ προσκείμενοι Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ ὑμῶν ζῆτε πάντες ἐν τῇ σήμερον.
5 ἴδετε, δέδειχα ὑμῖν δικαιώματα καὶ κρίσεις, καθὰ ἐνετείλατό μοι Κύριος, ποιῆσαι οὕτως ἐν τῇ γῇ, εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς εἰσπορεύεσθε ἐκεῖ κληρονομεῖν αὐτήν·
6 καὶ φυλάξεσθε καὶ ποιήσετε, ὅτι αὕτη ἡ σοφία καὶ ἡ σύνεσις ὑμῶν ἐναντίον πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν, ὅσοι ἐὰν ἀκούσωσι πάντα τὰ δικαιώματα ταῦτα καὶ ἐροῦσιν· ἰδοὺ λαὸς σοφὸς καὶ ἐπιστήμων τὸ ἔθνος τὸ μέγα τοῦτο.
7 ὅτι ποῖον ἔθνος μέγα, ᾧ ἐστιν αὐτῷ Θεὸς ἐγγίζων αὐτοῖς, ὡς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐν πᾶσιν, οἷς ἐὰν αὐτὸν ἐπικαλεσώμεθα;
8 καὶ ποῖον ἔθνος μέγα, ᾧ ἐστιν αὐτῷ δικαιώματα καὶ κρίματα δίκαια κατὰ πάντα τὸν νόμον τοῦτον, ὃν ἐγὼ δίδωμι ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν σήμερον;
9 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ καὶ φύλαξον τὴν ψυχήν σου σφόδρα, μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ πάντας τοὺς λόγους, οὓς ἑωράκασιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου· καὶ μὴ ἀποστήτωσαν ἀπὸ τῆς καρδίας σου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου, καὶ συμβιβάσεις τοὺς υἱούς σου καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν υἱῶν σου
10 ἡμέραν, ἣν ἔστητε ἐνώπιον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἐν Χωρὴβ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῆς ἐκκλησίας, ὅτι εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἐκκλησίασον πρός με τὸν λαόν, καὶ ἀκουσάτωσαν τὰ ρήματά μου, ὅπως μάθωσι φοβεῖσθαί με πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, ἃς αὐτοὶ ζῶσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν διδάξουσι.
11 καὶ προσήλθετε καὶ ἔστητε ὑπὸ τὸ ὄρος, καὶ τὸ ὄρος ἐκαίετο πυρὶ ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, σκότος, γνόφος, θύελλα, φωνὴ μεγάλη.
12 καὶ ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρὸς φωνὴν ρημάτων, ἣν ὑμεῖς ἠκούσατε, καὶ ὁμοίωμα οὐκ εἴδετε, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ φωνήν·
13 καὶ ἀνήγγειλεν ὑμῖν τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ, ἣν ἐνετείλατο ὑμῖν ποιεῖν, τὰ δέκα ρήματα, καὶ ἔγραψεν αὐτὰ ἐπὶ δύο πλάκας λιθίνας.
14 καὶ ἐμοὶ ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ διδάξαι ὑμᾶς δικαιώματα καὶ κρίσεις, ποιεῖν ὑμᾶς αὐτά ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς εἰσπορεύεσθε ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτήν.
15 καὶ φυλάξεσθε σφόδρα τὰς ψυχὰς ὑμῶν, ὅτι οὐκ εἴδετε ὁμοίωμα ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ, ᾗ ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν Χωρὴβ ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός.
16 μὴ ἀνομήσητε καὶ ποιήσητε ὑμῖν ἑαυτοῖς γλυπτὸν ὁμοίωμα πᾶσαν εἰκόνα ὁμοίωμα ἀρσενικοῦ ἢ θηλυκοῦ,
17 ὁμοίωμα παντὸς κτήνους τῶν ὄντων ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὁμοίωμα παντὸς ὀρνέου πτερωτοῦ, ὃ πέταται ὑπὸ τὸν οὐρανόν,
18 ὁμοίωμα παντὸς ἑρπετοῦ, ὃ ἕρπει ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὁμοίωμα παντὸς ἰχθύος, ὅσα ἐστὶν ἐν τοῖς ὕδασιν ὑποκάτω τῆς γῆς.
19 καὶ μὴ ἀναβλέψας εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἰδὼν τὸν ἥλιον καὶ τὴν σελήνην καὶ τοὺς ἀστέρας καὶ πάντα τὸν κόσμον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, πλανηθεὶς προσκυνήσῃς αὐτοῖς καὶ λατρεύσῃς αὐτοῖς, ἃ ἀπένειμε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου αὐτὰ πᾶσι τοῖς ἔθνεσι τοῖς ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ.
20 ὑμᾶς δὲ ἔλαβεν ὁ Θεὸς καὶ ἐξήγαγεν ὑμᾶς ἐκ τῆς καμίνου τῆς σιδηρᾶς, ἐξ Αἰγύπτου, εἶναι αὐτῷ λαὸν ἔγκληρον ὡς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ.
21 καὶ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἐθυμώθη μοι περὶ τῶν λεγομένων ὑφ᾿ ὑμῶν καὶ ὤμοσεν ἵνα μὴ διαβῶ τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην τοῦτον καὶ ἵνα μὴ εἰσέλθω εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου δίδωσί σοι ἐν κλήρῳ·
22 ἐγὼ γὰρ ἀποθνήσκω ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ οὐ διαβαίνω τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην τοῦτον, ὑμεῖς δὲ διαβαίνετε καὶ κληρονομήσετε τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην.
23 προσέχετε ὑμεῖς, μὴ ἐπιλάθησθε τὴν διαθήκην Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν, ἣν διέθετο πρὸς ὑμᾶς, καὶ ἀνομήσητε, καὶ ποιήσητε ὑμῖν ἑαυτοῖς γλυπτὸν ὁμοίωμα πάντων, ὧν συνέταξέ σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου·
24 ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου πῦρ καταναλίσκον ἐστί, Θεὸς ζηλωτής.
25 ᾿Εὰν δὲ γεννήσῃς υἱοὺς καὶ υἱοὺς τῶν υἱῶν σου καὶ χρονίσητε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνομήσητε καὶ ποιήσητε γλυπτὸν ὁμοίωμα παντὸς καὶ ποιήσητε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν παροργίσαι αὐτόν,
26 διαμαρτύρομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον τόν τε οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν, ὅτι ἀπωλείᾳ ἀπολεῖσθε ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς, εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς διαβαίνετε τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτήν. οὐχὶ πολυχρονιεῖτε ἡμέρας ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ἐκτριβῇ ἐκτριβήσεσθε.
27 καὶ διασπερεῖ Κύριος ὑμᾶς ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἔθνεσι καὶ καταλειφθήσεσθε ὀλίγοι ἀριθμῷ ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, εἰς οὓς εἰσάξει Κύριος ὑμᾶς ἐκεῖ.
28 καὶ λατρεύσετε ἐκεῖ θεοῖς ἑτέροις, ἔργοις χειρῶν ἀνθρώπων, ξύλοις καὶ λίθοις, οἳ οὐκ ὄψονται οὐδὲ μὴ ἀκούσωσιν οὔτε μὴ φάγωσιν οὔτε μὴ ὀσφρανθῶσι.
29 καὶ ζητήσετε ἐκεῖ Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ὑμῶν καὶ εὑρήσετε αὐτόν, ὅταν ἐκζητήσητε αὐτὸν ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς σου ἐν τῇ θλίψει σου·
30 καὶ εὑρήσουσί σε πάντες οἱ λόγοι οὗτοι ἐπ᾿ ἐσχάτῳ τῶν ἡμερῶν, καὶ ἐπιστραφήσῃ πρὸς Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου καὶ εἰσακούσῃ τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ·
31 ὅτι Θεὸς οἰκτίρμων Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, οὐκ ἐγκαταλείψει σε οὐδὲ μὴ ἐκτρίψῃ σε, οὐκ ἐπιλήσεται τὴν διαθήκην τῶν πατέρων σου, ἣν ὤμοσεν αὐτοῖς Κύριος.
32 ἐπερωτήσατε ἡμέρας προτέρας τὰς γενομένας προτέρας σου ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας, ἧς ἔκτισεν ὁ Θεὸς ἄνθρωπον ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἕως τοῦ ἄκρου τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, εἰ γέγονε κατὰ τὸ ρῆμα τὸ μέγα τοῦτο, εἰ ἤκουσται τοιοῦτο·
33 εἰ ἀκήκοεν ἔθνος φωνὴν Θεοῦ ζῶντος λαλοῦντος ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός, ὃν τρόπον ἀκήκοας σὺ καὶ ἔζησας·
34 εἰ ἐπείρασεν ὁ Θεὸς εἰσελθὼν λαβεῖν ἑαυτῷ ἔθνος ἐκ μέσου ἔθνους ἐν πειρασμῷ καὶ ἐν σημείοις καὶ ἐν τέρασι καί ἐν πολέμῳ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ καὶ ἐν ὁράμασι μεγάλοις κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ἐνώπιόν σου βλέποντος·
35 ὥστε εἰδῆσαί σε ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, οὗτος Θεός ἐστι, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν αὐτοῦ.
36 ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἀκουστὴ ἐγένετο ἡ φωνὴ αὐτοῦ παιδεῦσαί σε, καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἔδειξέ σοι τὸ πῦρ αὐτοῦ τὸ μέγα, καὶ τὰ ρήματα αὐτοῦ ἤκουσας ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός.
37 διὰ τὸ ἀγαπῆσαι αὐτὸν τοὺς πατέρας σου καὶ ἐξελέξατο τὸ σπέρμα αὐτῶν μετ᾿ αὐτοὺς ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐξήγαγέ σε αὐτὸς ἐν τῇ ἰσχύϊ αὐτοῦ τῇ μεγάλῃ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου
38 ἐξολοθρεῦσαι ἔθνη μεγάλα καὶ ἰσχυρότερά σου πρὸ προσώπου σου, εἰσαγαγεῖν σε δοῦναί σοι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν κληρονομεῖν, καθὼς ἔχεις σήμερον.
39 καὶ γνώσῃ σήμερον καὶ ἐπιστραφήσῃ τῇ διανοίᾳ ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου οὗτος Θεὸς ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἄνω καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς κάτω, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν αὐτοῦ·
40 καὶ φυλάξασθε τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ, ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον, ἵνα εὖ σοι γένηται καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου μετὰ σέ, ὅπως μακροήμεροι γένησθε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ἧς Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου δίδωσί σοι πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας.
41 Τότε ἀφώρισε Μωυσῆς τρεῖς πόλεις πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν ἡλίου
42 φυγεῖν ἐκεῖ τὸν φονευτήν, ὃς ἂν φονεύσῃ τὸν πλησίον οὐκ εἰδώς, καὶ οὗτος οὐ μισῶν αὐτὸν πρὸ τῆς χθὲς καὶ τῆς τρίτης, καὶ καταφεύξεται εἰς μίαν τῶν πόλεων τούτων καὶ ζήσεται·
43 τὴν Βοσὸρ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἐν τῇ γῇ τῇ πεδινῇ τῷ Ρουβὴν καὶ τὴν Ραμὼθ ἐν Γαλαὰδ τῷ Γαδδὶ καὶ τὴν Γαυλὼν ἐν Βασὰν τῷ Μανασσῇ.
44 Οὗτος ὁ νόμος, ὃν παρέθετο Μωυσῆς ἐνώπιον υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ·
45 ταῦτα τὰ μαρτύρια καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ὅσα ἐλάλησε Μωυσῆς τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραήλ, ἐξελθόντων αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου
46 ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου, ἐν φάραγγι, ἐγγὺς οἴκου Φογώρ, ἐν γῇ Σηὼν βασιλέως τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, ὃς κατῴκει ἐν ᾿Εσεβών, ὃν ἐπάταξε Μωυσῆς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, ἐξελθόντων αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου
47 καὶ ἐκληρονόμησαν τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν γῆν ῍Ωγ βασιλέως τῆς Βασάν, δύο βασιλέων τῶν ᾿Αμορραίων, οἳ ἦσαν πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου κατὰ ἀνατολὰς ἡλίου,
48 ἀπὸ ᾿Αροήρ, ἥ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τοῦ χείλους χειμάρρου ᾿Αρνῶν, καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ ὄρους τοῦ Σηὼν ὅ ἐστιν ᾿Αερμών,
49 πᾶσαν τὴν ῎Αραβα πέραν τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου κατὰ ἀνατολὰς ἡλίου ὑπὸ ᾿Ασηδὼθ τὴν λαξευτήν.
ΚΑΙ ἐκάλεσε Μωυσῆς πάντα ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτούς· ἄκουε, ᾿Ισραήλ, τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ὅσα ἐγὼ λαλῶ ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ, καὶ μαθήσεσθε αὐτὰ καὶ φυλάξεσθε ποιεῖν αὐτά.
2 Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν διέθετο πρὸς ὑμᾶς διαθήκην ἐν Χωρήβ·
3 οὐχὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν διέθετο Κύριος τὴν διαθήκην ταύτην, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ πρὸς ὑμᾶς, ὑμεῖς ὧδε πάντες ζῶντες σήμερον·
4 πρόσωπον κατὰ πρόσωπον ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός,
5 κἀγὼ εἱστήκειν ἀνὰ μέσον Κυρίου καὶ ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀναγγεῖλαι ὑμῖν τὰ ρήματα Κυρίου, ὅτι ἐφοβήθητε ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ πυρὸς καὶ οὐκ ἀνέβητε εἰς τὸ ὄρος, λέγων·
6 ἐγώ εἰμι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ὁ ἐξαγαγών σε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, ἐξ οἴκου δουλείας.
7 οὐκ ἔσονταί σοι θεοὶ ἕτεροι πρὸ προσώπου μου.
8 οὐ ποιήσεις σεαυτῷ εἴδωλον οὐδὲ παντὸς ὁμοίωμα, ὅσα ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἄνω καὶ ὅσα ἐν τῇ γῇ κάτω καὶ ὅσα ἐν τοῖς ὕδασιν ὑποκάτω τῆς γῆς.
9 οὐ προσκυνήσεις αὐτοῖς οὐδὲ μὴ λατρεύσῃς αὐτοῖς, ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, Θεὸς ζηλωτής, ἀποδιδοὺς ἁμαρτίας πατέρων ἐπὶ τέκνα ἐπὶ τρίτην καὶ τετάρτην γενεὰν τοῖς μισοῦσί με.
10 καὶ ποιῶν ἔλεος εἰς χιλιάδας τοῖς ἀγαπῶσί με καὶ τοῖς φυλάσσουσι τὰ προστάγματά μου.
11 οὐ λήψῃ τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου ἐπὶ ματαίῳ· οὐ γὰρ μὴ καθαρίσῃ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου τὸν λαμβάνοντα τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ ματαίῳ.
12 φύλαξαι τὴν ἡμέραν τῶν σαββάτων ἁγιάζειν αὐτήν, ὃν τρόπον ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου.
13 ἓξ ἡμέρας ἐργᾷ καὶ ποιήσεις πάντα τὰ ἔργα σου·
14 τῇ δὲ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ σάββατα Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ σου, οὐ ποιήσεις ἐν αὐτῇ πᾶν ἔργον, σὺ καὶ ὁ υἱός σου καὶ ἡ θυγάτηρ σου, ὁ παῖς σου καὶ ἡ παιδίσκη σου, ὁ βοῦς σου καὶ τὸ ὑποζύγιόν σου καὶ πᾶν κτῆνός σου καὶ προσήλυτος ὁ παροικῶν ἐν σοί, ἵνα ἀναπαύσηται ὁ παῖς σου καὶ ἡ παιδίσκη σου καὶ τὸ ὑποζύγιόν σου, ὥσπερ καὶ σύ·
15 καὶ μνησθήσῃ ὅτι οἰκέτης ἦσθα ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ ἐξήγαγέ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἐκεῖθεν ἐν χειρὶ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ, διὰ τοῦτο συνέταξέ σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, ὥστε φυλάσσεσθαι τὴν ἡμέραν τῶν σαββάτων καὶ ἁγιάζειν αὐτήν.
16 τίμα τὸν πατέρα σου καὶ τὴν μητέρα σου, ὃν τρόπον ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, ἵνα εὖ σοι γένηται καὶ ἵνα μακροχρόνιος γένῃ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ἧς Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου δίδωσί σοι.
17 οὐ φονεύσεις.
18 οὐ μοιχεύσεις.
19 οὐ κλέψεις.
20 οὐ ψευδομαρτυρήσεις κατὰ τοῦ πλησίον σου μαρτυρίαν ψευδῆ.
21 οὐκ ἐπιθυμήσεις τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ πλησίον σου· οὐκ ἐπιθυμήσεις τὴν οἰκίαν τοῦ πλησίον σου οὔτε τὸν ἀγρὸν αὐτοῦ οὔτε τὸν παῖδα αὐτοῦ οὔτε τὴν παιδίσκην αὐτοῦ οὔτε τοῦ βοὸς αὐτοῦ οὔτε τοῦ ὑποζυγίου αὐτοῦ οὔτε παντὸς κτήνους αὐτοῦ οὔτε πάντα ὅσα τῷ πλησίον σού ἐστι.
22 Ταῦτα τὰ ρήματα ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς πᾶσαν συναγωγὴν ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός, σκότος, γνόφος, θύελλα, φωνὴ μεγάλη, καὶ οὐ προσέθηκε· καὶ ἔγραψεν αὐτὰ ἐπὶ δύο πλάκας λιθίνας καὶ ἔδωκέ μοι.
23 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἠκούσατε τὴν φωνὴν ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρὸς καὶ τὸ ὄρος ἐκαίετο πυρί, καὶ προσήλθετε πρός με πάντες οἱ ἡγούμενοι τῶν φυλῶν ὑμῶν καὶ ἡ γερουσία ὑμῶν,
24 καὶ ἐλέγετε· ἰδοὺ ἔδειξεν ἡμῖν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὴν φωνὴν αὐτοῦ ἠκούσαμεν ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός· ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ εἴδομεν ὅτι λαλήσει ὁ Θεὸς πρὸς ἄνθρωπον, καὶ ζήσεται.
25 καὶ νῦν μὴ ἀποθάνωμεν, ὅτι ἐξαναλώσει ἡμᾶς τὸ πῦρ τὸ μέγα τοῦτο, ἐὰν προσθώμεθα ἡμεῖς ἀκοῦσαι τὴν φωνὴν Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἔτι, καὶ ἀποθανούμεθα·
26 τίς γὰρ σάρξ, ἥτις ἤκουσε φωνὴν Θεοῦ ζῶντος λαλοῦντος ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός, ὡς ἡμεῖς, καὶ ζήσεται;
27 πρόσελθε σὺ καὶ ἄκουσον πάντα, ὅσα ἂν εἴπῃ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, καὶ σὺ λαλήσεις πρὸς ἡμᾶς πάντα, ὅσα ἂν λαλήσῃ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν πρὸς σέ, καὶ ἀκουσόμεθα καὶ ποιήσομεν.
28 καὶ ἤκουσε Κύριος τὴν φωνὴν τῶν λόγων ὑμῶν λαλούντων πρός με, καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἤκουσα τὴν φωνὴν τῶν λόγων τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου, ὅσα ἐλάλησαν πρός σε· ὀρθῶς πάντα, ὅσα ἐλάλησαν.
29 τίς δώσει εἶναι οὕτω τὴν καρδίαν αὐτῶν ἐν αὐτοῖς, ὥστε φοβεῖσθαί με καὶ φυλάσσεσθαι τὰς ἐντολάς μου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, ἵνα εὖ ᾖ αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτῶν δι᾿ αἰῶνος;
30 βάδισον, εἰπὸν αὐτοῖς· ἀποστράφητε ὑμεῖς εἰς τοὺς οἴκους ὑμῶν·
31 σὺ δὲ αὐτοῦ στῆθι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ λαλήσω πρὸς σὲ τὰς ἐντολὰς καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ὅσα διδάξεις αὐτούς, καί ποιείτωσαν οὕτως ἐν τῇ γῇ, ἣν ἐγὼ δίδωμι αὐτοῖς ἐν κλήρῳ.
32 καὶ φυλάξεσθε ποιεῖν ὃν τρόπον ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου· οὐκ ἐκκλινεῖτε εἰς δεξιὰ οὐδὲ εἰς ἀριστερά,
33 κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν ὁδόν, ἣν ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου πορεύεσθαι ἐν αὐτῇ, ὅπως καταπαύσῃ σε καὶ εὖ σοι ᾖ καὶ μακροημερεύσητε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ἣν κληρονομήσετε.
ΚΑΙ αὗται αἱ ἐντολαὶ καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν διδάξαι ὑμᾶς ποιεῖν οὕτως ἐν τῇ γῇ, εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς εἰσπορεύεσθε ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτήν,
2 ἵνα φοβῆσθε Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ὑμῶν, φυλάσσεσθαι πάντα τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ, ὅσας ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον, σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν υἱῶν σου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου, ἵνα μακροημερεύσητε.
3 καὶ ἄκουσον, ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ φύλαξον ποιεῖν, ὅπως εὖ σοι ᾖ καὶ ἵνα πληθυνθῆτε σφόδρα, καθάπερ ἐλάλησε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων σου δοῦναί σοι γῆν ρέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι. καὶ ταῦτα τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Κύριος τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, ἐξελθόντων αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου.
4 ῎Ακουε, ᾿Ισραήλ· Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν Κύριος εἷς ἐστι·
5 καὶ ἀγαπήσεις Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς σου καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς δυνάμεώς σου.
6 καὶ ἔσται τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα, ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον, ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου καὶ ἐν ψυχῇ σου·
7 καὶ προβιβάσεις αὐτὰ τοὺς υἱούς σου, καὶ λαλήσεις ἐν αὐτοῖς καθήμενος ἐν οἴκῳ καὶ πορευόμενος ἐν ὁδῷ καὶ κοιταζόμενος καὶ διανιστάμενος·
8 καὶ ἀφάψεις αὐτὰ εἰς σημεῖον ἐπὶ τῆς χειρός σου, καὶ ἔσται ἀσάλευτον πρὸ ὀφθαλμῶν σου·
9 καὶ γράψετε αὐτὰ ἐπὶ τὰς φλιὰς τῶν οἰκιῶν ὑμῶν καὶ τῶν πυλῶν ὑμῶν.
10 Καὶ ἔσται ὅταν εἰσαγάγῃ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν ὤμοσε τοῖς πατράσι σου, τῷ ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ τῷ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ δοῦναί σοι, πόλεις μεγάλας καὶ καλάς, ἃς οὐκ ᾠκοδόμησας,
11 οἰκίας πλήρεις πάντων ἀγαθῶν ἃς οὐκ ἐνέπλησας, λάκκους λελατομημένους, οὓς οὐκ ἐξελατόμησας, ἀμπελῶνας καὶ ἐλαιῶνας, οὓς οὐ κατεφύτευσας, καὶ φαγὼν καὶ ἐμπλησθεὶς
12 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ, μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου τοῦ ἐξαγαγόντος σε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, ἐξ οἴκου δουλείας.
13 Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου φοβηθήσῃ καὶ αὐτῷ μόνῳ λατρεύσεις καὶ πρὸς αὐτὸν κολληθήσῃ καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ ὀμῇ.
14 οὐ πορεύεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἑτέρων ἀπὸ τῶν θεῶν τῶν ἐθνῶν τῶν περικύκλῳ ὑμῶν,
15 ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς ζηλωτὴς Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἐν σοί, μὴ ὀργισθεὶς θυμῷ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σού σοι ἐξολοθρεύσῃ σε ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς γῆς.
16 οὐκ ἐκπειράσεις Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου, ὃν τρόπον ἐξεπειράσατε ἐν τῷ Πειρασμῷ.
17 φυλάσσων φυλάξῃ τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου, τὰ μαρτύρια καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα, ὅσα ἐνετείλατό σοι·
18 καὶ ποιήσεις τὸ ἀρεστὸν καὶ τὸ καλὸν ἔναντι Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου, ἵνα εὖ σοι γένηται καὶ εἰσέλθῃς καὶ κληρονομήσῃς τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθήν, ἣν ὤμοσε Κύριος τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν,
19 ἐκδιῶξαι πάντας τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου πρὸ προσώπου σου, καθὰ ἐλάλησε Κύριος.
20 Καὶ ἔσται ὅταν ἐρωτήσῃ σε ὁ υἱός σου αὔριον λέγων· τί ἐστι τὰ μαρτύρια καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν ἡμῖν;
21 καὶ ἐρεῖς τῷ υἱῷ σου· οἰκέται ἦμεν τῷ Φαραὼ ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ, καὶ ἐξήγαγεν ἡμᾶς Κύριος ἐκεῖθεν ἐν χειρὶ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ.
22 καὶ ἔδωκε Κύριος σημεῖα καὶ τέρατα μεγάλα καὶ πονηρὰ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ἐν Φαραὼ καὶ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ ἐνώπιον ἡμῶν·
23 καὶ ἡμᾶς ἐξήγαγεν ἐκεῖθεν δοῦναι ἡμῖν τὴν γῆν ταύτην, ἣν ὤμοσε δοῦναι τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν.
24 καὶ ἐνετείλατο ἡμῖν Κύριος ποιεῖν πάντα τὰ δικαιώματα ταῦτα φοβεῖσθαι Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ἡμῶν, ἵνα εὖ ᾖ ἡμῖν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, ἵνα ζῶμεν ὥσπερ καὶ σήμερον.
25 καὶ ἐλεημοσύνη ἔσται ἡμῖν, ἐὰν φυλασσώμεθα ποιεῖν πάσας τὰς ἐντολὰς ταύτας ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν, καθὰ ἐνετείλατο ἡμῖν.
ΕΑΝ δὲ εἰσάγῃ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἰς τὴν γῆν, εἰς ἣν εἰσπορεύῃ ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτήν, καὶ ἐξάρῃ ἔθνη μεγάλα ἀπὸ προσώπου σου, τὸν Χετταῖον καὶ Γεργεσσαῖον καὶ ᾿Αμορραῖον καὶ Χαναναῖον καὶ Φερεζαῖον καὶ Εὐαῖον καὶ ᾿Ιεβουσαῖον, ἑπτὰ ἔθνη πολλὰ καὶ ἰσχυρότερα ὑμῶν,
2 καὶ παραδώσει αὐτοὺς Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου καὶ πατάξεις αὐτούς, ἀφανισμῷ ἀφανιεῖς αὐτούς, οὐ διαθήσῃ πρὸς αὐτοὺς διαθήκην, οὐδὲ μὴ ἐλεήσητε αὐτούς,
3 οὐδὲ μὴ γαμβρεύσητε πρὸς αὐτούς· τὴν θυγατέρα σου οὐ δώσεις τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ οὐ λήψῃ τῷ υἱῷ σου·
4 ἀποστήσει γὰρ τὸν υἱόν σου ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ λατρεύσει θεοῖς ἑτέροις, καὶ ὀργισθήσεται θυμῷ Κύριος εἰς ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσει σε τὸ τάχος.
5 ἀλλ᾿ οὕτω ποιήσετε αὐτοῖς· τοὺς βωμοὺς αὐτῶν καθελεῖτε καὶ τὰς στήλας αὐτῶν συντρίψετε καὶ τὰ ἄλση αὐτῶν ἐκκόψετε καὶ τὰ γλυπτὰ τῶν θεῶν αὐτῶν κατακαύσετε πυρί·
6 ὅτι λαὸς ἅγιος εἶ Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ σου, καὶ σὲ προείλετο Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἶναι αὐτῷ λαὸν περιούσιον παρὰ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, ὅσα ἐπὶ προσώπου τῆς γῆς.
7 οὐχ ὅτι πολυπληθεῖτε παρὰ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, προείλετο Κύριος ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐξελέξατο Κύριος ὑμᾶς, ὑμεῖς γάρ ἐστε ὀλιγοστοὶ παρὰ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη,
8 ἀλλὰ παρὰ τὸ ἀγαπᾶν Κύριον ὑμᾶς καὶ διατηρῶν τὸν ὅρκον, ὃν ὤμοσε τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν, ἐξήγαγεν ὑμᾶς Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ κραταιᾷ καὶ βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ καὶ ἐλυτρώσατό σε Κύριος ἐξ οἴκου δουλείας, ἐκ χειρὸς Φαραὼ βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου.
9 καὶ γνώσῃ ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, οὗτος Θεός, Θεὸς πιστός, ὁ φυλάσσων διαθήκην καὶ ἔλεος τοῖς ἀγαπῶσιν αὐτὸν καὶ τοῖς φυλάσσουσι τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ εἰς χιλίας γενεὰς
10 καὶ ἀποδιδοὺς τοῖς μισοῦσι κατὰ πρόσωπον ἐξολοθρεῦσαι αὐτούς· καὶ οὐχὶ βραδυνεῖ τοῖς μισοῦσι, κατὰ πρόσωπον ἀποδώσει αὐτοῖς.
11 καὶ φυλάξῃ τὰς ἐντολὰς καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα ταῦτα, ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον ποιεῖν.
12 Καὶ ἔσται ἡνίκα ἂν ἀκούσητε τὰ δικαιώματα ταῦτα καὶ φυλάξητε καὶ ποιήσητε αὐτά, καὶ διαφυλάξει Κύριος ὁ Θεός σού σοι τὴν διαθήκην καὶ τὸ ἔλεος, ὃ ὤμοσε τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν,
13 καὶ ἀγαπήσει σε καὶ εὐλογήσει σε καὶ πληθυνεῖ σε καὶ εὐλογήσει τὰ ἔκγονα τῆς κοιλίας σου καὶ τὸν καρπὸν τῆς γῆς σου, τὸν σῖτόν σου καὶ τὸν οἶνόν σου καὶ τὸ ἔλαιόν σου, τὰ βουκόλια τῶν βοῶν σου καὶ τὰ ποίμνια τῶν προβάτων σου ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ἧς ὤμοσε Κύριος τοῖς πατράσι σου δοῦναί σοι.
14 εὐλογητός ἔσῃ παρὰ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη· οὐκ ἔσται ἐν ὑμῖν ἄγονος οὐδὲ στεῖρα καὶ ἐν τοῖς κτήνεσί σου.
15 καὶ περιελεῖ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἀπὸ σοῦ πᾶσαν μαλακίαν· καὶ πάσας νόσους Αἰγύπτου τὰς πονηράς, ἃς ἑώρακας, καὶ ὅσα ἔγνως, οὐκ ἐπιθήσει ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ ἐπιθήσει αὐτὰ ἐπὶ πάντας τοὺς μισοῦντάς σε.
16 καὶ φαγῇ πάντα τὰ σκῦλα τῶν ἐθνῶν, ἃ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου δίδωσί σοι· οὐ φείσεται ὁ ὀφθαλμός σου ἐπ᾿ αὐτοῖς, καὶ οὐ μὴ λατρεύσῃς τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτῶν, ὅτι σκῶλον τοῦτό ἐστί σοι.
17 ἐὰν δὲ λέγῃς ἐν τῇ διανοίᾳ σου, ὅτι πολὺ τὸ ἔθνος τοῦτο ἢ ἐγώ, πῶς δυνήσομαι ἐξολοθρεῦσαι αὐτούς;
18 οὐ φοβηθήσῃ αὐτούς· μνείᾳ μνησθήσῃ ὅσα ἐποίησε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου τῷ Φαραὼ καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς Αἰγυπτίοις,
19 τοὺς πειρασμοὺς τοὺς μεγάλους, οὓς εἴδοσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου, τὰ σημεῖα καὶ τὰ τέρατα τὰ μεγάλα ἐκεῖνα, τὴν χεῖρα τὴν κραταιὰν καὶ τὸν βραχίονα τὸν ὑψηλόν, ὡς ἐξήγαγέ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, οὕτω ποιήσει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν πᾶσι τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, οὓς σὺ φοβῇ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν.
20 καὶ τὰς σφηκίας ἀποστελεῖ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἰς αὐτούς, ἕως ἂν ἐκτριβῶσιν οἱ καταλελειμμένοι καὶ οἱ κεκρυμμένοι ἀπὸ σοῦ.
21 οὐ τρωθήσῃ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἐν σοί, Θεὸς μέγας καὶ κραταιός,
22 καὶ καταναλώσει Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου τὰ ἔθνη ταῦτα ἀπὸ προσώπου σου κατὰ μικρὸν μικρόν· οὐ δυνήσῃ ἐξαναλῶσαι αὐτοὺς τὸ τάχος, ἵνα μὴ γένηται ἡ γῆ ἔρημος καὶ πληθυνθῇ ἐπὶ σὲ τὰ θηρία τὰ ἄγρια.
23 καὶ παραδώσει αὐτοὺς Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου καὶ ἀπολεῖς αὐτοὺς ἀπωλείᾳ μεγάλῃ, ἕως ἂν ἐξολοθρεύσητε αὐτούς.
24 καὶ παραδώσει τοὺς βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν, καὶ ἀπολεῖται τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῶν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου· οὐκ ἀντιστήσεται οὐδεὶς κατὰ πρόσωπόν σου, ἕως ἂν ἐξολοθρεύσῃς αὐτούς.
25 τὰ γλυπτὰ τῶν θεῶν αὐτῶν καύσετε πυρί· οὐκ ἐπιθυμήσεις ἀργύριον οὐδὲ χρυσίον ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν σὺ λήψῃ σεαυτῷ, μὴ πταίσῃς δι᾿ αὐτό, ὅτι βδέλυγμα Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ σού ἐστι·
26 καὶ οὐκ εἰσοίσεις βδέλυγμα εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου καὶ ἀνάθεμα ἔσῃ ὥσπερ τοῦτο· προσοχθίσματι προσοχθιεῖς καὶ βδελύγματι βδελύξῃ, ὅτι ἀνάθημά ἐστι.
ΠΑΣΑΣ τὰς ἐντολάς, ἃς ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον, φυλάξεσθε ποιεῖν, ἵνα ζῆτε καὶ πολυπλασιασθῆτε καὶ εἰσέλθητε καὶ κληρονομήσητε τὴν γῆν, ἣν ὤμοσε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν.
2 καὶ μνησθήσῃ πᾶσαν τὴν ὁδόν, ἣν ἤγαγέ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, ὅπως ἂν κακώσῃ σε καὶ πειράσῃ σε καὶ διαγνωσθῇ τὰ ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου, εἰ φυλάξῃ τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ ἢ οὔ.
3 καὶ ἐκάκωσέ σε καὶ ἐλιμαγχόνησέ σε καὶ ἐψώμισέ σε τὸ μάννα, ὃ οὐκ ᾔδεισαν οἱ πατέρες σου, ἵνα ἀναγγείλῃ σοι, ὅτι οὐκ ἐπ᾿ ἄρτῳ μόνῳ ζήσεται ὁ ἄνθρωπος, ἀλλ᾿ ἐπὶ παντὶ ρήματι τῷ ἐκπορευομένῳ διὰ στόματος Θεοῦ ζήσεται ὁ ἄνθρωπος.
4 τὰ ἱμάτιά σου οὐκ ἐπαλαιώθη ἀπὸ σοῦ, τὰ ὑποδήματά σου οὐ κατετρίβη ἀπὸ σοῦ, οἱ πόδες σου οὐκ ἐτυλώθησαν, ἰδοὺ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη.
5 καὶ γνώσῃ τῇ καρδίᾳ σου ὅτι ὡς εἴ τις ἄνθρωπος παιδεύσῃ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ, οὕτω Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου παιδεύσει σε,
6 καὶ φυλάξῃ τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου πορεύεσθαι ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ φοβεῖσθαι αὐτόν·
7 ὁ γὰρ Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου εἰσάξει σε εἰς γῆν ἀγαθὴν καὶ πολλήν, οὗ χείμαρροι ὑδάτων καὶ πηγαὶ ἀβύσσων ἐκπορευόμεναι διὰ τῶν πεδίων καὶ διὰ τῶν ὀρέων·
8 γῆ πυροῦ καὶ κριθῆς, ἄμπελοι, συκαῖ, ροαί, γῆ ἐλαίας ἐλαίου καὶ μέλιτος·
9 γῆ, ἐφ᾿ ἧς οὐ μετὰ πτωχείας φαγῇ τὸν ἄρτον σου καὶ οὐκ ἐνδεηθήσῃ ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς οὐδέν· γῆ, ἧς οἱ λίθοι σίδηρος, καὶ ἐκ τῶν ὀρέων αὐτῆς μεταλλεύσεις χαλκόν·
10 καὶ φαγῇ καὶ ἐμπλησθήσῃ καὶ εὐλογήσεις Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς τῆς ἀγαθῆς, ἧς δέδωκέ σοι.
11 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ, μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου τοῦ μὴ φυλάξαι τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ κρίματα καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ, ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον,
12 μὴ φαγὼν καὶ ἐμπλησθεὶς καὶ οἰκίας καλὰς οἰκοδομήσας καὶ κατοικήσας ἐν αὐταῖς
13 καὶ τῶν βοῶν σου καὶ τῶν προβάτων σου πληθυνθέντων σοι, ἀργυρίου καὶ χρυσίου πληθυνθέντος σοι καὶ πάντων, ὅσων σοι ἔσται, πληθυνθέντων σοι,
14 ὑψωθῇς τῇ καρδίᾳ καὶ ἐπιλάθῃ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου τοῦ ἐξαγαγόντος σε ἐκγῆς Αἰγύπτου, ἐξ οἴκου δουλείας,
15 τοῦ ἀγαγόντος σε διὰ τῆς ἐρήμου τῆς μεγάλης καὶ τῆς φοβερᾶς ἐκείνης, οὗ ὄφις δάκνων καὶ σκορπίος καὶ δίψα, οὗ οὐκ ἦν ὕδωρ, τοῦ ἐξαγαγόντος σοι ἐκ πέτρας ἀκροτόμου πηγὴν ὕδατος,
16 τοῦ ψωμίσαντός σε τὸ μάννα ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, ὃ οὐκ ᾔδεις σὺ καὶ οὐκ ᾔδεισαν οἱ πατέρες σου, ἵνα κακώσῃ σε καὶ ἐκπειράσῃ σε καὶ εὖ σε ποιήσῃ ἐπ᾿ ἐσχάτων τῶν ἡμερῶν σου.
17 μὴ εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου· ἡ ἰσχύς μου καὶ τὸ κράτος τῆς χειρός μου ἐποίησέ μοι τὴν δύναμιν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην·
18 καὶ μνησθήσῃ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου, ὅτι αὐτός σοι δίδωσιν ἰσχὺν τοῦ ποιῆσαι δύναμιν καὶ ἵνα στήσῃ τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ, ἣν ὤμοσε Κύριος τοῖς πατράσι σου, ὡς σήμερον.
19 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν λήθῃ ἐπιλάθῃ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου καὶ πορευθῇς ὀπίσω θεῶν ἑτέρων καὶ λατρεύσῃς αὐτοῖς καὶ προσκυνήσῃς αὐτοῖς, διαμαρτύρομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον τόν τε οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν, ὅτι ἀπωλείᾳ ἀπολεῖσθε·
20 καθὰ καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ ἔθνη, ὅσα Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ἀπολλύει πρὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν, οὕτως ἀπολεῖσθε, ἀνθ᾿ ὧν οὐκ ἠκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν.
ΑΚΟΥΕ, ᾿Ισραήλ· σὺ διαβαίνεις σήμερον τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην εἰσελθεῖν κληρονομῆσαι ἔθνη μεγάλα καὶ ἰσχυρότερα μᾶλλον ἢ ὑμεῖς, πόλεις μεγάλας καὶ τειχήρεις ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ,
2 λαὸν μέγαν καὶ πολὺν καὶ εὐμήκη, υἱοὺς ᾿Ενάκ, οὓς σὺ οἶσθα καὶ σὺ ἀκήκοας· τίς ἀντιστήσεται κατὰ πρόσωπον υἱῶν ᾿Ενάκ;
3 καὶ γνώσῃ σήμερον, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, οὗτος προπορεύσεται πρὸ προσώπου σου· πῦρ καταναλίσκον ἐστίν· οὗτος ἐξολοθρεύσει αὐτούς, καὶ οὗτος ἀποστρέψει αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου σου, καὶ ἀπολεῖ αὐτοὺς ἐν τάχει, καθάπερ εἶπέ σοι Κύριος.
4 μὴ εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου ἐν τῷ ἐξαναλῶσαι Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου τὰ ἔθνη ταῦτα πρὸ προσώπου σου λέγων· διὰ τὰς δικαιοσύνας μου εἰσήγαγέ με Κύριος κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην·
5 οὐχὶ διὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου, οὐδὲ διὰ τὴν ὁσιότητα τῆς καρδίας σου σὺ εἰσπορεύῃ κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν, ἀλλὰ διὰ τὴν ἀσέβειαν τῶν ἐθνῶν τούτων Κύριος ἐξολοθρεύσει αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ ἵνα στήσῃ τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ, ἣν ὤμοσε Κύριος τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν, τῷ ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ τῷ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ.
6 καὶ γνώσῃ σήμερον ὅτι οὐχὶ διὰ τὰς δικαιοσύνας σου Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου δίδωσί σοι τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην κληρονομῆσαι, ὅτι λαὸς σκληροτράχηλος εἶ.
7 μνήσθητι, μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ ὅσα παρώξυνας Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ· ἀφ᾿ ἧς ἡμέρας ἐξήλθετε ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἕως ἤλθετε εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον, ἀπειθοῦντες διετελεῖτε τὰ πρὸς Κύριον.
8 καὶ ἐν Χωρὴβ παρωξύνατε Κύριον, καὶ ἐθυμώθη Κύριος ἐφ᾿ ὑμῖν ἐξολοθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς,
9 ἀναβαίνοντός μου εἰς τὸ ὄρος λαβεῖν τὰς πλάκας τὰς λιθίνας, πλάκας διαθήκης, ἃς διέθετο Κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς. καὶ κατεγινόμην ἐν τῷ ὄρει τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας· ἄρτον οὐκ ἔφαγον καὶ ὕδωρ οὐκ ἔπιον.
10 καὶ ἔδωκέ μοι Κύριος τὰς δύο πλάκας τὰς λιθίνας γεγραμμένας ἐν τῷ δακτύλῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ, καὶ ἐπ᾿ αὐταῖς ἐγέγραπτο πάντες οἱ λόγοι, οὓς ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἡμέρᾳ ἐκκλησίας·
11 καὶ ἐγένετο διὰ τεσσαράκοντα ἡμερῶν καὶ διὰ τεσσαράκοντα νυκτῶν ἔδωκε Κύριος ἐμοὶ τὰς δύο πλάκας τὰς λιθίνας, πλάκας διαθήκης.
12 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· ἀνάστηθι, κατάβηθι τὸ τάχος ἐντεῦθεν, ὅτι ἠνόμησεν ὁ λαός σου, οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου· παρέβησαν ταχὺ ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ, ἧς ἐνετείλω αὐτοῖς· καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς χώνευμα.
13 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με λέγων· λελάληκα πρός σε ἅπαξ καὶ δὶς λέγων· ἑώρακα τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον, καὶ ἰδοὺ λαὸς σκληροτράχηλός ἐστι·
14 καὶ νῦν ἔασόν με ἐξολοθρεῦσαι αὐτούς, καὶ ἐξαλείψω τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῶν ὑποκάτωθεν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ποιήσω σε εἰς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ ἰσχυρὸν καὶ πολὺ μᾶλλον ἢ τοῦτο.
15 καὶ ἐπιστρέψας κατέβην ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους, καὶ τὸ ὄρος ἐκαίετο πυρὶ ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ αἱ δύο πλάκες τῶν μαρτυρίων ἐπὶ ταῖς δυσὶ χερσί μου.
16 καὶ ἰδὼν ὅτι ἡμάρτετε ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐποιήσατε ὑμῖν αὐτοῖς χωνευτὸν καὶ παρέβητε ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ, ἧς ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ὑμῖν ποιεῖν,
17 καὶ ἐπιλαβόμενος τῶν δύο πλακῶν ἔρριψα αὐτὰς ἀπὸ τῶν δύο χειρῶν μου, καὶ συνέτριψα ἐναντίον ὑμῶν.
18 καὶ ἐδεήθην ἐναντίον Κυρίου δεύτερον καθάπερ καὶ τὸ πρότερον τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας, ἄρτον οὐκ ἔφαγον καὶ ὕδωρ οὐκ ἔπιον, περὶ πασῶν τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ὑμῶν, ὧν ἡμάρτετε ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ παροξῦναι αὐτόν.
19 καὶ ἔκφοβός εἰμι διὰ τὸν θυμὸν καὶ τὴν ὀργήν, ὅτι παρωξύνθη Κύριος ἐφ᾿ ὑμῖν τοῦ ἐξολοθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς καὶ εἰσήκουσε Κύριος ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ τούτῳ.
20 καὶ ἐπὶ ᾿Ααρὼν ἐθυμώθη ἐξολοθρεῦσαι αὐτόν, καὶ ηὐξάμην καὶ περὶ ᾿Ααρὼν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ.
21 καὶ τὴν ἁμαρτίαν ὑμῶν, ἣν ἐποιήσατε, τὸν μόσχον, ἔλαβον αὐτὸν καὶ κατέκαυσα αὐτὸν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ συνέκοψα αὐτὸν καταλέσας σφόδρα, ἕως οὗ ἐγένετο λεπτόν· καὶ ἐγένετο ὡσεὶ κονιορτός, καὶ ἔρριψα τὸν κονιορτὸν εἰς τὸν χειμάρρουν τὸν καταβαίνοντα ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους.
22 καὶ ἐν τῷ ᾿Εμπυρισμῷ καὶ ἐν τῷ Πειρασμῷ, καὶ ἐν τοῖς Μνήμασι τῆς ἐπιθυμίας παροξύναντες ἦτε Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν ὑμῶν.
23 καὶ ὅτε ἐξαπέστειλεν ὑμᾶς Κύριος ἐκ Κάδης Βαρνὴ λέγων· ἀνάβητε καὶ κληρονομήσατε τὴν γῆν, ἣν δίδωμι ὑμῖν, καὶ ἠπειθήσατε τῷ ρήματι Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῷ καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ.
24 ἀπειθοῦντες ἦτε τὰ πρὸς Κύριον ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας, ἧς ἐγνώσθη ὑμῖν.
25 καὶ ἐδεήθην ἔναντι Κυρίου τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας, ὅσας ἐδεήθην· εἶπε γὰρ Κύριος ἐξολοθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς·
26 καὶ ηὐξάμην πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν καὶ εἶπα· Κύριε βασιλεῦ τῶν θεῶν, μὴ ἐξολοθρεύσῃς τὸν λαόν σου καὶ τὴν μερίδα σου, ἣν ἐλυτρώσω, οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν τῇ ἰσχύϊ σου τῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν τῇ χειρί σου τῇ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν τῷ βραχίονί σου τῷ ὑψηλῷ·
27 μνήσθητι ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ τῶν θεραπόντων σου, οἷς ὤμοσας κατὰ σεαυτοῦ· μὴ ἐπιβλέψῃς ἐπὶ τὴν σκληρότητα τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου καὶ τὰ ἀσεβήματα, καὶ τὰ ἁμαρτήματα αὐτῶν,
28 μὴ εἴπωσιν οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν, ὅθεν ἐξήγαγες ἡμᾶς ἐκεῖθεν, λέγοντες· παρὰ τὸ μὴ δύνασθαι Κύριον εἰσαγαγεῖν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, καὶ παρὰ τὸ μισῆσαι αὐτοὺς ἐξήγαγεν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἀποκτεῖναι αὐτούς.
29 καὶ οὗτοι λαός σου καὶ κλῆρός σου, οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν τῇ ἰσχύϊ σου τῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν τῇ χειρί σου τῇ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν τῷ βραχίονί σου τῷ ὑψηλῷ.
ΕΝ ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· λάξευσον σεαυτῷ δύο πλάκας λιθίνας, ὥσπερ τὰς πρώτας, καὶ ἀνάβηθι πρός με εἰς τὸ ὄρος· καὶ ποιήσεις σεαυτῷ κιβωτὸν ξυλίνην·
2 καὶ γράψεις ἐπὶ τὰς πλάκας τὰ ρήματα, ἃ ἦν ἐν ταῖς πλαξὶ ταῖς πρώταις, ἃς συνέτριψας, καὶ ἐμβαλεῖς αὐτὰς εἰς τὴν κιβωτόν.
3 καὶ ἐποίησα κιβωτὸν ἐκ ξύλων ἀσήπτων καί ἐλάξευσα τὰς πλάκας λιθίνας, ὡς αἱ πρῶται· καὶ ἀνέβην εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ αἱ δύο πλάκες ἐπὶ ταῖς χερσί μου.
4 καὶ ἔγραψεν ἐπὶ τὰς πλάκας κατὰ τὴν γραφὴν τὴν πρώτην τοὺς δέκα λόγους, οὓς ἐλάλησε Κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὰς Κύριος ἐμοί.
5 καὶ ἐπιστρέψας κατέβην ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους καὶ ἐνέβαλον τὰς πλάκας εἰς τὴν κιβωτόν, ἣν ἐποίησα, καὶ ἦσαν ἐκεῖ, καθὰ ἐνετείλατό μοι Κύριος.
6 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπῇραν ἐκ Βηρὼθ υἱῶν ᾿Ιακὶμ Μισαδαΐ· ἐκεῖ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Ααρὼν καὶ ἐτάφη ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἱεράτευσεν ᾿Ελεάζαρ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
7 ἐκεῖθεν ἀπῇραν εἰς Γαδγὰδ καὶ ἀπὸ Γαδγὰδ εἰς ᾿Ετεβαθᾶ, γῆ χείμαρροι ὑδάτων.
8 ἐν ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ διέστειλε Κύριος τὴν φυλὴν τὴν Λευὶ αἴρειν τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης Κυρίου, παρεστάναι ἔναντι Κυρίου, λειτουργεῖν καὶ ἐπεύχεσθαι ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης.
9 διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἔστι τοῖς Λευίταις μερὶς καὶ κλῆρος ἐν τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτῶν· Κύριος αὐτὸς κλῆρος αὐτοῦ, καθότι εἶπεν αὐτῷ.
10 κἀγὼ εἱστήκειν ἐν τῷ ὄρει τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας, καὶ εἰσήκουσε Κύριος ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ τούτῳ, καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησε Κύριος ἐξολοθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς.
11 καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρός με· βάδιζε, ἄπαρον ἐναντίον τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου, καὶ εἰσπορευέσθωσαν καὶ κληρονομήτωσαν τὴν γῆν, ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν δοῦναι αὐτοῖς.
12 Καὶ νῦν, ᾿Ισραήλ, τί Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου αἰτεῖται παρὰ σοῦ, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ φοβεῖσθαι Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου καὶ πορεύεσθαι ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀγαπᾶν αὐτὸν καὶ λατρεύειν Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ σου ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς σου,
13 φυλάσσεσθαι τάς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ, ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον, ἵνα εὖ σοι ᾖ;
14 ἰδοὺ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ὁ οὐρανὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, ἡ γῆ καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐστὶν ἐν αὐτῇ·
15 πλὴν τοὺς πατέρας ὑμῶν προείλετο Κύριος ἀγαπᾶν αὐτούς, καὶ ἐξελέξατο τὸ σπέρμα αὐτῶν μετ᾿ αὐτοὺς ὑμᾶς παρὰ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη κατὰ τὴν ἡμέραν ταύτην.
16 καὶ περιτεμεῖσθε τὴν σκληροκαρδίαν ὑμῶν καὶ τὸν τράχηλον ὑμῶν οὐ σκληρυνεῖτε ἔτι·
17 ὁ γὰρ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν οὗτος Θεὸς τῶν θεῶν καὶ Κύριος τῶν κυρίων, ὁ Θεὸς ὁ μέγας· καὶ ἰσχυρὸς καὶ φοβερός, ὅστις οὐ θαυμάζει πρόσωπον, οὐδ᾿ οὐ μὴ λάβῃ δῶρον,
18 ποιῶν κρίσιν προσηλύτῳ καὶ ὀρφανῷ καὶ χήρᾳ, καὶ ἀγαπᾷ τὸν προσήλυτον δοῦναι αὐτῷ ἄρτον καὶ ἱμάτιον.
19 καὶ ἀγαπήσετε τὸν προσήλυτον· προσήλυτοι γὰρ ἦτε ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ.
20 Κύριον τὸν Θεόν σου φοβηθήσῃ καὶ αὐτῷ λατρεύσεις καὶ πρὸς αὐτὸν κολληθήσῃ καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ ὀμῇ·
21 οὗτος καύχημά σου καὶ οὗτος Θεός σου, ὅστις ἐποίησεν ἐν σοὶ τὰ μεγάλα καὶ τὰ ἔνδοξα ταῦτα, ἃ εἴδοσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου.
22 ἐν ἑβδομήκοντα ψυχαῖς κατέβησαν οἱ πατέρες σου εἰς Αἴγυπτον, νυνὶ δὲ
ἐποίησέ σε Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου ὡσεὶ τὰ ἄστρα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῷ πλήθει.
These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel on this side Jordan in the desert towards the west near the Red Sea, between Pharan Tophol, and Lobon, and Aulon, and the gold works.
2 It is a journey of eleven days from Choreb to mount Seir as far as Cades Barne.
3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, Moses spoke to all the children of Israel, according to all things which the Lord commanded him for them:
4 after he had smitten Seon king of the Amorites who dwelt in Esebon, and Og the king of Basan who dwelt in Astaroth and in Edrain;
5 beyond Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses began to declare this law, saying,
6 The Lord your God spoke to us in Choreb, saying, Let it suffice you to have dwelt so long in this mountain.
7 Turn ye and depart and enter into the mountain of the Amorites, and go to all that dwell near about Araba, to the mountain and the plain and to the south, and the land of the Chananites near the sea, and Antilibanus, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates.
8 Behold, God has delivered the land before you; go in and inherit the land, which I sware to your fathers, Abraam, and Isaac, and Jacob, to give it to them and to their seed after them.
9 And I spoke to you at that time, saying, I shall not be able by myself to bear you.
10 The Lord your God has multiplied you, and, behold, ye are to-day as the stars of heaven for multitude.
11 The Lord God of your fathers add to you a thousand-fold more than you are, and bless you as he has spoken to you.
12 How shall I alone be able to bear your labour, and your burden, and your gainsayings?
13 Take to yourselves wise and understanding and prudent men for your tribes, and I will set your leaders over you.
14 And ye answered me and said, The thing which thou hast told us is good to do.
15 So I took of you wise and understanding and prudent men, and I set them to rule over you as rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, and rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens, and officers to your judges.
16 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear causes between your brethren, and judge rightly between a man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.
17 Thou shalt not have respect to persons in judgment, thou shalt judge small and great equally; thou shalt not shrink from before the person of a man, for the judgment is God’s; and whatsoever matter shall be too hard for you, ye shall bring it to me, and I will hear it.
18 And I charged upon you at that time all the commands which ye shall perform.
19 And we departed from Choreb, and went through all that great wilderness and terrible, which ye saw, by the way of the mountain of the Amorite, as the Lord our God charged us, and we came as far as Cades Barne.
20 And I said to you, Ye have come as far as the mountain of the Amorite, which the Lord our God gives to you:
21 behold, the Lord your God has delivered to us the land before you: go up and inherit it as the Lord God of your fathers said to you; fear not, neither be afraid.
22 And ye all came to me, and said, Let us send men before us, and let them go up to the land for us; and let them bring back to us a report of the way by which we shall go up, and of the cities into which we shall enter.
23 And the saying pleased me: and I took of you twelve men, one man of a tribe.
24 And they turned and went up to the mountain, and they came as far as the valley of the cluster, and surveyed it.
25 And they took in their hands of the fruit of the land, and brought it to you, and said, The land is good which the Lord our God gives us.
26 Yet ye would not go up, but rebelled against the words of the Lord our God.
27 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the Lord hated us, he has brought us out of the land of Egypt to deliver us into the hands of the Amorites, to destroy us.
28 Whither do we go up? and your brethren drew away your heart, saying, It is a great nation and populous, and mightier than we; and there are cities great and walled up to heaven: moreover we saw there the sons of the giants.
29 And I said to you, Fear not, neither be ye afraid of them;
30 the Lord your God who goes before your face, he shall fight against them together with you effectually, according to all that he wrought for you in the land of Egypt;
31 and in this wilderness which ye saw, by the way of the mountain of the Amorite; how the Lord thy God will bear thee as a nursling, as if any man should nurse his child, through all the way which ye have gone until ye came to this place.
32 And in this matter ye believed not the Lord our God,
33 who goes before you in the way to choose you a place, guiding you in fire by night, shewing you the way by which ye go, and a cloud by day.
34 And the Lord heard the voice of your words, and being greatly provoked he sware, saying,
35 Not one of these men shall see this good land, which I sware to their fathers,
36 except Chaleb the son of Jephonne, he shall see it; and to him I will give the land on which he went up, and to his sons, because he attended to the things of the Lord.
37 And the Lord was angry with me for your sake, saying, Neither shalt thou by any means enter therein.
38 Joshua the son of Naue, who stands by thee, he shall enter in there; do thou strengthen him, for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
39 And every young child who this day knows not good or evil, —they shall enter therein, and to them I will give it, and they shall inherit it.
40 And ye turned and marched into the wilderness, in the way by the Red Sea.
41 And ye answered and said, We have sinned before the Lord our God; we will go up and fight according to all that the Lord our God has commanded us: and having taken every one his weapons of war, and being gathered together, ye went up to the mountain.
42 And the Lord said to me, Tell them, Ye shall not go up, neither shall ye fight, for I am not with you; thus shall ye not be destroyed before your enemies.
43 And I spoke to you, and ye did not hearken to me; and ye transgressed the commandment of the Lord; and ye forced your way and went up into the mountain.
44 And the Amorite who dwelt in that mountain came out to meet you, and pursued you as bees do, and wounded you from Seir to Herma.
45 And ye sat down and wept before the Lord our God, and the Lord hearkened not to your voice, neither did he take heed to you.
46 And ye dwelt in Cades many days, as many days as ye dwelt there.
And we turned and departed into the wilderness, by the way of the Red Sea, as the Lord spoke to me, and we compassed mount Seir many days.
2 And the Lord said to me,
3 Ye have compassed this mount long enough; turn therefore toward the north.
4 And charge the people, saying, Ye are going through the borders of your brethren the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir; and they shall fear you, and dread you greatly.
5 Do not engage in war against them, for I will not give you of their land even enough to set your foot upon, for I have given mount Seir to the children of Esau as an inheritance.
6 Buy food of them for money and eat, and ye shall receive water of them by measure for money, and drink.
7 For the Lord our God has blessed thee in every work of thy hands. Consider how thou wentest through that great and terrible wilderness: behold, the Lord thy God has been with thee forty years; thou didst not lack any thing.
8 And we passed by our brethren the children of Esau, who dwelt in Seir, by the way of Araba from Ælon and from Gesion Gaber; and we turned and passed by the way of the desert of Moab.
9 And the Lord said to me, Do not ye quarrel with the Moabites, and do not engage in war with them; for I will not give you of their land for an inheritance, for I have given Aroer to the children of Lot to inherit.
10 Formerly the Ommin dwelt in it, a great and numerous nation and powerful, like the Enakim.
11 These also shall be accounted Raphain like the Enakim; and the Moabites call them Ommin.
12 And the Chorrhite dwelt in Seir before, and the sons of Esau destroyed them, and utterly consumed them from before them; and they dwelt in their place, as Israel did to the land of his inheritance, which the Lord gave to them.
13 Now then, arise ye, said I, and depart, and cross the valley of Zaret.
14 And the days in which we traveled from Cades Barne till we crossed the valley of Zaret, were thirty and eight years, until the whole generation of the men of war failed, dying out of the camp, as the Lord God sware to them.
15 And the hand of the Lord was upon them to destroy them out of the midst of the camp, until they were consumed.
16 And it came to pass when all the men of war dying out of the midst of the people had fallen,
17 that the Lord spoke to me, saying,
18 Thou shalt pass over this day the borders of Moab to Aroer;
19 and ye shall draw nigh to the children of Amman: do not quarrel with them, nor wage war with them; for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Amman for an inheritance, because I have given it to the children of Lot for an inheritance.
20 It shall be accounted a land of Raphain, for the Raphain dwelt there before, and the Ammanites call them Zochommin.
21 A great nation and populous, and mightier than you, as also the Enakim: yet the Lord destroyed them from before them, and they inherited their land, and they dwelt there instead of them until this day.
22 As they did to the children of Esau that dwell in Seir, even as they destroyed the Chorrhite from before them, and inherited their country, and dwelt therein instead of them until this day.
23 And the Evites who dwell in Asedoth to Gaza, and the Cappadocians who came out of Cappadocia, destroyed them, and dwelt in their room.
24 Now then arise and depart, and pass over the valley of Arnon: behold, I have delivered into thy hands Seon the king of Esebon the Amorite, and his land: begin to inherit it: engage in war with him this day.
25 Begin to put thy terror and thy fear on the face of all the nations under heaven, who shall be troubled when they have heard thy name, and shall be in anguish before thee.
26 And I sent ambassadors from the wilderness of Kedamoth to Seon king of Esebon with peaceable words, saying,
27 I will pass through thy land: I will go by the road, I will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
28 Thou shalt give me food for money, and I will eat; and thou shalt give me water for money, and I will drink; I will only go through on my feet:
29 as the sons of Esau did to me, who dwelt in Seir, and the Moabites who dwelt in Aroer, until I shall have passed Jordan into the land which the Lord our God gives us.
30 And Seon king of Esebon would not that we should pass by him, because the Lord our God hardened his spirit, and made his heart stubborn, that he might be delivered into thy hands, as on this day.
31 And the Lord said to me, Behold, I have begun to deliver before thee Seon the king of Esebon the Amorite, and his land, and do thou begin to inherit his land.
32 And Seon the king of Esebon came forth to meet us, he and all his people to war at Jassa.
33 And the Lord our God delivered him before our face, and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.
34 And we took possession of all his cities at that time, and we utterly destroyed every city in succession, and their wives, and their children; we left no living prey.
35 Only we took the cattle captive, and took the spoil of the cities.
36 From Aroer, which is by the brink of the brook of Arnon, and the city which is in the valley, and as far as the mount of Galaad; there was not a city which escaped us: the Lord our God delivered all of them into our hands.
37 Only we did not draw near to the children of Amman, even all the parts bordering on the brook Jaboc, and the cities in the mountain country, as the Lord our God charged us.
And we turned and went by the way leading to Basan; and Og the king of Basan came out to meet us, he and all his people, to battle at Edraim.
2 And the Lord said to me, Fear him not, for I have delivered him, and all his people, and all his land, into thy hands; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst to Seon king of the Amorites who dwelt in Esebon.
3 And the Lord our God delivered him into our hands, even Og the king of Basan, and all his people; and we smote him until we left none of his seed.
4 And we mastered all his cities at that time; there was not a city which we took not from them; sixty cities, all the country round about Argob, belonging to king Og in Basan:
5 all strong cities, lofty walls, gates and bars; besides the very many cities of the Pherezites.
6 We utterly destroyed them as we dealt with Seon the king of Esebon, so we utterly destroyed every city in order, and the women and the children,
7 and all the cattle; and we took for a prey to ourselves the spoil of the cities.
8 And we took at that time the land out of the hands of the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond Jordan, extending from the brook of Arnon even unto Aermon.
9 The Phoenicians call Aermon Sanior, but the Amorite has called it Sanir.
10 All the cities of Misor, and all Galaad, and all Basan as far as Elcha and Edraim, cities of the kingdom of Og in Basan.
11 For only Og the king of Basan was left of the Raphain: behold, his bed was a bed of iron; behold, it is in the chief city of the children of Ammon; the length of it is nine cubits, and the breadth of it four cubits, according to the cubit of a man.
12 And we inherited that land at that time from Aroer, which is by the border of the torrent Arnon, and half the mount of Galaad; and I gave his cities to Ruben and to Gad.
13 And the rest of Galaad, and all Basan the kingdom of Og I gave to the half-tribe of Manasse, and all the country round about Argob, all that Basan; it shall be accounted the land of Raphain.
14 And Jair the son of Manasse took all the country round about Argob as far as the borders of Gargasi and Machathi: he called them by his name Basan Thavoth Jair until this day.
15 And to Machir I gave Galaad.
16 And to Ruben and to Gad I gave the land under Galaad as far as the brook of Arnon, the border between the brook and as far as Jaboc; the brook is the border to the children Amman.
17 And Araba and Jordan are the boundary of Machanareth, even to the sea of Araba, the salt sea under Asedoth Phasga eastward.
18 And I charged you at that time, saying, The Lord your God has given you this land by lot; arm yourselves, every one that is powerful, and go before your brethren the children of Israel.
19 Only your wives and your children and your cattle (I know that ye have much cattle), let them dwell in your cities which I have given you;
20 until the Lord your God give your brethren rest, as also he has given to you, and they also shall inherit the land, which the Lord our God gives them on the other side of Jordan; then ye shall return, each one to his inheritance which I have given you.
21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Your eyes have seen all things, which the Lord our God did to these two kings: so shall the Lord our God do to all the kingdoms against which thou crossest over thither.
22 Ye shall not be afraid of them, because the Lord our God himself shall fight for you.
23 And I besought the Lord at that time, saying,
24 Lord God, thou hast begun to shew to thy servant thy strength, and thy power, and thy mighty hand, and thy high arm: for what God is there in heaven or on the earth, who will do as thou hast done, and according to thy might?
25 I will therefore go over and see this good land that is beyond Jordan, this good mountain and Antilibanus.
26 And the Lord because of you did not regard me, and hearkened not to me; and the Lord said to me, Let it suffice thee, speak not of this matter to me any more.
27 Go up to the top of the quarried rock, and look with thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes, for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.
28 And charge Joshua, and strengthen him, and encourage him; for he shall go before the face of this people, and he shall give them the inheritance of all the land which thou hast seen.
29 And we abode in the valley near the house of Phogor.
And now, Israel, hear the ordinances and judgments, all that I teach you this day to do: that ye may live, and be multiplied, and that ye may go in and inherit the land, which the Lord God of your fathers gives you.
2 Ye shall not add to the word which I command you, and ye shall not take from it: keep the commandments of the Lord our God, all that I command you this day.
3 Your eyes have seen all that the Lord our God did in the case of Beel-phegor; for every man that went after Beel-phegor, the Lord your God has utterly destroyed him from among you.
4 But ye that kept close to the Lord your God are all alive to-day.
5 Behold, I have shewn you ordinances and judgments as the Lord commanded me, that ye should do so in the land into which ye go to inherit it.
6 And ye shall keep and do them: for this is your wisdom and understanding before all nations, as many as shall hear all these ordinances; and they shall say, Behold, this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
7 For what manner of nation is so great, which has God so near to them as the Lord our God is in all things in whatsoever we may call upon him?
8 And what manner of nation is so great, which has righteous ordinances and judgments according to all this law, which I set before you this day?
9 Take heed to thyself, and keep thy heart diligently: forget not any of the things, which thine eyes have seen, and let them not depart from thine heart all the days of thy life; and thou shalt teach thy sons and thy sons’ sons,
10 even the things that happened in the day in which ye stood before the Lord our God in Choreb in the day of the assembly; for the Lord said to me, Gather the people to me, and let them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days which they live upon the earth, and they shall teach their sons.
11 And ye drew nigh and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire up to heaven: there was darkness, blackness, and tempest.
12 And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire a voice of words, which ye heard: and ye saw no likeness, only ye heard a voice.
13 And he announced to you his covenant, which he commanded you to keep, even the ten commandments; and he wrote them on two tables of stone.
14 And the Lord commanded me at that time, to teach you ordinances and judgments, that ye should do them on the land, into which ye go to inherit it.
15 And take good heed to your hearts, for ye saw no similitude in the day in which the Lord spoke to you in Choreb in the mountain out of the midst of the fire:
16 lest ye transgress, and make to yourselves a carved image, any kind of figure, the likeness of male or female,
17 the likeness of any beast of those that are on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird which flies under heaven,
18 the likeness of any reptile which creeps on the earth, the likeness of any fish of those which are in the waters under the earth;
19 and lest having looked up to the sky, and having seen the sun and the moon and the stars, and all the heavenly bodies, thou shouldest go astray and worship them, and serve them, which the Lord thy God has distributed to all the nations under heaven.
20 But God took you, and led you forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be to him a people of inheritance, as at this day.
21 And the Lord God was angry with me for the things said by you, and sware that I should not go over this Jordan, and that I should not enter into the land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
22 For I am to die in this land, and shall not pass over this Jordan; but ye are to pass over, and shall inherit this good land.
23 Take heed to yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the Lord our God, which he made with you, and ye transgress, and make to yourselves a graven image of any of the things concerning which the Lord thy God commanded thee.
24 For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
25 And when thou shalt have begotten sons, and shalt have sons’ sons, and ye shall have dwelt a long time on the land, and shall have transgressed, and made a graven image of any thing, and shall have done wickedly before the Lord your God to provoke him;
26 I call heaven and earth this day to witness against you, that ye shall surely perish from off the land, into which ye go across Jordan to inherit it there; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall be utterly cut off.
27 And the Lord shall scatter you among all nations, and ye shall be left few in number among all the nations, among which the Lord shall bring you.
28 And ye shall there serve other gods, the works of the hands of men, wood and stones, which cannot see, nor can they hear, nor eat, nor smell.
29 And there ye shall seek the Lord your God, and ye shall find him whenever ye shall seek him with all your heart, and with all your soul in your affliction.
30 And all these things shall come upon thee in the last days, and thou shalt turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt hearken to his voice.
31 Because the Lord thy God is a God of pity: he will not forsake thee, nor destroy thee; he will not forget the covenant of thy fathers, which the Lord sware to them.
32 Ask of the former days which were before thee, from the day when God created man upon the earth, and beginning at the one end of heaven to the other end of heaven, if there has happened any thing like to this great event, if such a thing has been heard:
33 if a nation have heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard and hast lived;
34 if God has assayed to go and take to himself a nation out of the midst of another nation with trial, and with signs, and with wonders, and with war, and with a mighty hand, and with a high arm, and with great sights, according to all the things which the Lord our God did in Egypt in thy sight.
35 So that thou shouldest know that the Lord thy God he is God, and there is none beside him.
36 His voice was made audible from heaven to instruct thee, and he shewed thee upon the earth his great fire, and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.
37 Because he loved thy fathers, he also chose you their seed after them, and he brought thee himself with his great strength out of Egypt,
38 to destroy nations great and stronger than thou before thy face, to bring thee in, to give thee their land to inherit, as thou hast it this day.
39 An thou shalt know this day, and shalt consider in thine heart, that the Lord thy God he is God in heaven above, and on the earth beneath, and there is none else but he.
40 And keep ye his commandments, and his ordinances, all that I command you this day; that it may be well with thee, and with thy sons after thee, that ye may be long-lived upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for ever.
41 Then Moses separated three cities beyond Jordan on the east,
42 that the slayer might flee thither, who should have slain his neighbour unintentionally, and should not have hated him in times past, and he shall flee to one of these cities and live:
43 Bosor in the wilderness, in the plain country of Ruben, and Ramoth in Galaad belonging to Gad, and Gaulon in Basan belonging to Manasse.
44 This is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel.
45 These are the testimonies, and the ordinances, and the judgments, which Moses spoke to the sons of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt:
46 on the other side of Jordan, in the valley near the house of Phogor, in the land of Seon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Esebon, whom Moses and the sons of Israel smote when they came out of the land of Egypt.
47 And they inherited his land, and the land of Og king of Basan, two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond Jordan eastward.
48 From Aroer, which is on the border of the brook Arnon, even to the mount of Seon, which is Aermon.
49 All Araba beyond Jordan eastward under Asedoth hewn in the rock.
And Moses called all Israel, and said to them, Hear, Israel, the ordinances and judgments, all that I speak in your ears this day, and ye shall learn them, and observe to do them.
2 The Lord your God made a covenant with you in Choreb.
3 The Lord did not make this covenant with your fathers, but with you: ye are all here alive this day.
4 The Lord spoke to you face to face in the mountain out of the midst of the fire.
5 And I stood between the Lord and you at that time to report to you the words of the Lord, (because ye were afraid before the fire, and ye went not up to the mountain) saying,
6 I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
7 Thou shalt have no other gods before my face.
8 Thou shalt not make to thyself an image, nor likeness of any thing, whatever things are in the heaven above, and whatever are in the earth beneath, and whatever are in the waters under the earth.
9 Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor shalt thou serve them; for I am the Lord thy God, a jealous God, visiting the sins of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation to them that hate me,
10 and doing mercifully to thousands of them that love me, and that keep my commandments.
11 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord thy God will certainly not acquit him that takes his name in vain.
12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God commanded thee.
13 Six days thou shalt work, and thou shalt do all thy works;
14 but on the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: thou shalt do in it no work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant, thine ox, and thine ass, and all thy cattle, and the stranger that sojourns in the midst of thee; that thy man-servant may rest, and thy maid, and thine ox, as well as thou.
15 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord thy God brought thee out thence with a mighty hand, and a high arm: therefore the Lord appointed thee to keep the sabbath day and to sanctify it.
16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the Lord thy God commanded thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest live long upon the land, which the Lord thy God gives thee.
17 Thou shalt not commit murder.
18 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
19 Thou shalt not steal.
20 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
21 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife; thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, nor his field, nor his man-servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any beast of his, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
22 These words the Lord spoke to all the assembly of you in the mountain out of the midst of the fire—there was darkness, blackness, storm, a loud voice—and he added no more, and he wrote them on two tables of stone, and he gave them to me.
23 And it came to pass when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the fire, for the mountain burned with fire, that ye came to me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders:
24 and ye said, Behold, the Lord our God has shewn us his glory, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: this day we have seen that God shall speak to man, and he shall live.
25 And now let us not die, for this great fire will consume us, if we shall hear the voice of the Lord our God any more, and we shall die.
26 For what flesh is there which has heard the voice of the living God, speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have heard, and shall live?
27 Do thou draw near, and hear all that the Lord our God shall say, and thou shalt speak to us all things whatsoever the Lord our God shall speak to thee, and we will hear, and do.
28 And the Lord heard the voice of your words as ye spoke to me; and the Lord said to me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, even all things that they have said to thee. They have well said all that they have spoken.
29 O that there were such a heart in them, that they should fear me and keep my commands always, that it might be well with them and with their sons for ever.
30 Go, say to them, Return ye to your houses;
31 but stand thou here with me, and I will tell thee all the commands, and the ordinances, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, and let them do so in the land which I give them for an inheritance.
32 And ye shall take heed to do as the Lord thy God commanded thee; ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left,
33 according to all the way which the Lord thy God commanded thee to walk in it, that he may give thee rest; and that it may be well with thee, and ye may prolong your days on the land which ye shall inherit.
And these are the commands, and the ordinances, and the judgments, as many as the Lord our God gave commandment to teach you to do so in the land on which ye enter to inherit it.
2 That ye may fear the Lord your God, keep ye all his ordinances, and his commandments, which I command thee to-day, thou, and thy sons, and thy sons’ sons, all the days of thy life, that ye may live many days.
3 Hear, therefore, O Israel, and observe to do them, that it may be well with thee, and that ye may be greatly multiplied, as the Lord God of thy fathers said that he would give thee a land flowing with milk and honey: and these are the ordinances, and the judgments, which the Lord commanded the children of Israel in the wilderness, when they had gone forth from the land of Egypt.
4 Hear, O Israel, The Lord our God is one Lord.
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy mind, and with all thy soul, and all thy strength.
6 And these words, all that I command thee this day, shall be in thy heart and in thy soul.
7 And thou shalt teach them to thy children, and thou shalt speak of them sitting in the house, and walking by the way, and lying down, and rising up.
8 And thou shalt fasten them for a sign upon thy hand, and it shall be immoveable before thine eyes.
9 And ye shall write them on the lintels of your houses and of your gates.
10 And it shall come to pass when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware to thy fathers, to Abraam, and to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and beautiful cities which thou didst not build,
11 houses full of all good things which thou didst not fill, wells dug in the rock which thou didst not dig, vineyards and oliveyards which thou didst not plant, then having eaten and been filled,
12 beware lest thou forget the Lord thy God that brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
13 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve; and thou shalt cleave to him, and by his name thou shalt swear.
14 Go ye not after other gods of the gods of the nations round about you;
15 for the Lord thy God in the midst of thee is a jealous God, lest the Lord thy God be very angry with thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
16 Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God, as ye tempted him in the temptation.
17 Thou shalt by all means keep the commands of the Lord thy God, the testimonies, and the ordinances, which he commanded thee.
18 And thou shalt do that which is pleasing and good before the Lord thy God, that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and inherit the good land, which the Lord sware to your fathers,
19 to chase all thine enemies from before thy face, as the Lord said.
20 And it shall come to pass when thy son shall ask thee at a future time, saying, What are the testimonies, and the ordinances, and the judgments, which the Lord our God has commanded us?
21 Then shalt thou say to thy son, We were slaves to Pharao in the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought us forth thence with a mighty hand, and with a high arm.
22 And the Lord wrought signs and great and grievous wonders in Egypt, on Pharao and on his house before us.
23 And he brought us out thence to give us this land, which he sware to give to our fathers.
24 And the Lord charged us to observe all these ordinances; to fear the Lord our God, that it may be well with us for ever, that we may live, as even to-day.
25 And there shall be mercy to us, if we take heed to keep all these commands before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us.
And when the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land, into which thou goest to possess it, and shall remove great nations from before thee, the Chettite, and Gergesite, and Amorite, and Chananite, and Pherezite, and Evite, and Jebusite, seven nations more numerous and stronger than you,
2 and the Lord thy God shall deliver them into thy hands, then thou shalt smite them: thou shalt utterly destroy them: thou shalt not make a covenant with them, neither shall ye pity them:
3 neither shall ye contract marriages with them: thou shalt not give thy daughter to his son, and thou shalt not take his daughter to thy son.
4 For he will draw away thy son from me, and he will serve other gods; and the Lord will be very angry with you, and will soon utterly destroy thee.
5 But thus shall ye do to them; ye shall destroy their altars, and shall break down their pillars, and shall cut down their groves, and shall burn with fire the graven images of their gods.
6 For thou art a holy people to the Lord thy God; and the Lord thy God chose thee to be to him a peculiar people beyond all nations that are upon the face of the earth.
7 It was not because ye are more numerous than all other nations that the Lord preferred you, and the Lord made choice of you: for ye are fewer in number than all other nations.
8 But because the Lord loved you, and as keeping the oath which he sware to your fathers, the Lord brought you out with a strong hand, and the Lord redeemed thee from the house of bondage, out of the hand of Pharao king of Egypt.
9 Thou shalt know therefore, that the Lord thy God, he is God, a faithful God, who keeps covenant and mercy for them that love him, and for those that keep his commandments to a thousand generations,
10 and who recompenses them that hate him to their face, to destroy them utterly; and will not be slack with them that hate him: he will recompense them to their face.
11 Thou shalt keep therefore the commands, and the ordinances, and these judgments, which I command thee this day to do.
12 And it shall come to pass when ye shall have heard these ordinances, and shall have kept and done them, that the Lord thy God shall keep for thee the covenant and the mercy, which he sware to your fathers.
13 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee; and he will bless the off-spring of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the herds of thine oxen, and the flocks of thy sheep, on the land which the Lord sware to thy fathers to give to thee.
14 Thou shalt be blessed beyond all nations; there shall not be among you an impotent or barren one, or among thy cattle.
15 And the Lord thy God shall remove from thee all sickness; and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou hast seen, and all that thou hast known, will he lay upon thee; but he will lay them upon all that hate thee.
16 And thou shalt eat all the spoils of the nations which the Lord thy God gives thee; thine eye shall not spare them, and thou shalt not serve their gods; for this is an offence to thee.
17 But if thou shouldest say in thine heart, This nation is greater than I, how shall I be able to destroy them utterly?
18 thou shalt not fear them; thou shalt surely remember all that the Lord thy God did to Pharao and to all the Egyptians:
19 the great temptations which thine eyes have seen, those signs and great wonders, the strong hand, and the high arm; how the Lord thy God brought thee forth: so the Lord your God will do to all the nations, whom thou fearest in their presence.
20 And the Lord thy God shall send against them the hornets, until they that are left and they that are hidden from thee be utterly destroyed.
21 Thou shalt not be wounded before them, because the Lord thy God in the midst of thee is a great and powerful God.
22 And the Lord thy God shall consume these nations before thee by little and little: thou shalt not be able to consume them speedily, lest the land become desert, and the wild beasts of the field be multiplied against thee.
23 And the Lord thy God shall deliver them into thy hands, and thou shalt destroy them with a great destruction, until ye shall have utterly destroyed them.
24 And he shall deliver their kings into your hands, and ye shall destroy their name from that place; none shall stand up in opposition before thee, until thou shalt have utterly destroyed them.
25 Ye shall burn with fire the graven images of their gods: thou shalt not covet their silver, neither shalt thou take to thyself gold from them, lest thou shouldest offend thereby, because it is an abomination to the Lord thy God.
26 And thou shalt not bring an abomination into thine house, so shouldest thou be an accursed thing like it; thou shalt utterly hate it, and altogether abominate it, because it is an accursed thing.
Ye shall observe to do all the commands which I charge you to-day, that ye may live and be multiplied, and enter in and inherit the land, which the Lord your God sware to give to your fathers.
2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee in the wilderness, that he might afflict thee, and try thee, and that the things in thine heart might be made manifest, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments or no.
3 And he afflicted thee and straitened thee with hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thy fathers knew not; that he might teach thee that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God shall man live.
4 Thy garments grew not old from off thee, thy shoes were not worn from off thee, thy feet were not painfully hardened, lo! these forty years.
5 And thou shalt know in thine heart, that as if any man should chasten his son, so the Lord thy God will chasten thee.
6 And thou shalt keep the commands of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
7 For the Lord thy God will bring thee into a good and extensive land, where there are torrents of waters, and fountains of deep places issuing through the plains and through the mountains:
8 a land of wheat and barley, wherein are vines, figs, pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey;
9 a land on which thou shalt not eat thy bread with poverty, and thou shalt not want any thing upon it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of its mountains thou shalt dig brass.
10 And thou shalt eat and be filled, and shalt bless the Lord thy God on the good land, which he has given thee.
11 Take heed to thyself that thou forget not the Lord thy God, so as not to keep his commands, and his judgments, and ordinances, which I command thee this day:
12 lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt in them;
13 and thy oxen and thy sheep are multiplied to thee, and thy silver and thy gold are multiplied to thee, and all thy possessions are multiplied to thee,
14 thou shouldest be exalted in heart, and forget the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage:
15 who brought thee through that great and terrible wilderness, where is the biting serpent, and scorpion, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee a fountain of water out of the flinty rock:
16 who fed thee with manna in the wilderness, which thou knewest not, and thy fathers knew not; that he might afflict thee, and thoroughly try thee, and do thee good in thy latter days.
17 Lest thou shouldest say in thine heart, My strength, and the power of mine hand have wrought for me this great wealth.
18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God, that he gives thee strength to get wealth; even that he may establish his covenant, which the Lord sware to thy fathers, as at this day.
19 And it shall come to pass if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and shouldest go after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall surely perish.
20 As also the other nations which the Lord God destroys before your face, so shall ye perish, because ye hearkened not to the voice of the Lord your God.
Hear, O Israel: Thou goest this day across Jordan to inherit nations greater and stronger than yourselves, cities great and walled up to heaven;
2 a people great and many and tall, the sons of Enac, whom thou knowest, and concerning whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the children of Enac?
3 And thou shalt know to-day, that the Lord thy God he shall go before thy face: he is a consuming fire; he shall destroy them, and he shall turn them back before thee, and shall destroy them quickly, as the Lord said to thee.
4 Speak not in thine heart, when the Lord thy God has destroyed these nations before thy face, saying, For my righteousness the Lord brought me in to inherit this good land.
5 Not for thy righteousness, nor for the holiness of thy heart, dost thou go in to inherit their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations the Lord will destroy them from before thee, and that he may establish the covenant, which the Lord sware to our fathers, to Abraam, and to Isaac, and to Jacob.
6 And thou shalt know to-day, that it is not for thy righteousnesses the Lord thy God gives thee this good land to inherit, for thou art a stiff-necked people.
7 Remember, forget not, how much thou provokedst the Lord thy God in the wilderness: from the day that ye came forth out of Egypt, even till ye came into this place, ye continued to be disobedient toward the Lord.
8 Also in Choreb ye provoked the Lord, and the Lord was angry with you to destroy you;
9 when I went up into the mountain to receive the tables of stone, the tables of the covenant, which the Lord made with you, and I was in the mountain forty days and forty nights, I ate no bread and drank no water.
10 And the Lord gave me the two tables of stone written with the finger of God, and on them there had been written all the words which the Lord spoke to you in the mountain in the day of the assembly.
11 And it came to pass after forty days and forty nights, the Lord gave me the two tables of stone, the tables of the covenant.
12 And the Lord said to me, Arise, go down quickly from hence, for thy people whom thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt have transgressed; they have gone aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them, and have made themselves a molten image.
13 And the Lord spoke to me, saying, I have spoken to thee once and again, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff-necked people.
14 And now suffer me utterly to destroy them, and I will blot out their name from under heaven, and will make of thee a nation great and strong, and more numerous than this.
15 And I turned and went down from the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire to heaven; and the two tables of the testimonies were in my two hands.
16 And when I saw that ye had sinned against the Lord your God, and had made to yourselves a molten image, and had gone astray out of the way, which the Lord commanded you to keep;
17 then I took hold of the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and broke them before you.
18 And I made my petition before the Lord as also at the first forty days and forty nights: I ate no bread and drank no water, on account of all your sins which ye sinned in doing evil before the Lord God to provoke him.
19 And I was greatly terrified because of the wrath and anger, because the Lord was provoked with you utterly to destroy you; yet the Lord hearkened to me at this time also.
20 And he was angry with Aaron to destroy him utterly, and I prayed for Aaron also at that time.
21 And your sin which ye had made, even the calf, I took, and burnt it with fire, and pounded it and ground it down till it became fine; and it became like dust, and I cast the dust into the brook that descended from the mountain.
22 Also in the burning, and in the temptation, and at the graves of lust, ye provoked the Lord.
23 And when the Lord sent you forth from Cades Barne, saying, Go up and inherit the land which I give to you, then ye disobeyed the word of the Lord your God, and believed him not, and hearkened not to his voice.
24 Ye were disobedient in the things relating to the Lord from the day in which he became known to you.
25 And I prayed before the Lord forty days and forty nights, the number that I prayed before, for the Lord said that he would utterly destroy you.
26 And I prayed to God, and said, O Lord, King of gods, destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, whom thou didst redeem, whom thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt with thy great power, and with thy strong hand, and with thy high arm.
27 Remember Abraam, and Isaac, and Jacob thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thyself: look not upon the hardness of heart of this people, and their impieties, and their sins.
28 Lest the inhabitants of the land whence thou broughtest us out speak, saying, Because the Lord could not bring them into the land of which he spoke to them, and because he hated them, has he brought them forth to slay them in the wilderness.
29 And these are thy people and thy portion, whom thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt with thy great strength, and with thy mighty hand, and with thy high arm.
At that time the Lord said to me, Hew for thyself two stone tables as the first, and come up to me into the mountain, and thou shalt make for thyself an ark of wood.
2 And thou shalt write upon the tables the words which were on the first tables which thou didst break, and thou shalt put them into the ark.
3 So I made an ark of boards of incorruptible wood, and I hewed tables of stone like the first, and I went up to the mountain, and the two tables were in my hand.
4 And he wrote upon the tables according to the first writing the ten commandments, which the Lord spoke to you in the mountain out of the midst of the fire, and the Lord gave them to me.
5 And I turned and came down from the mountain, and I put the tables into the ark which I had made; and there they were, as the Lord commanded me.
6 And the children of Israel departed from Beeroth of the sons of Jakim to Misadai: there Aaron died, and there he was buried, and Eleazar his son was priest in his stead.
7 Thence they departed to Gadgad; and from Gadgad to Etebatha, a land wherein are torrents of water.
8 At that time the Lord separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the Lord, to stand near before the Lord, to minister and bless in his name to this day.
9 Therefore the Levites have no part nor inheritance among their brethren; the Lord himself is their inheritance, as he said to them.
10 And I remained in the mount forty days and forty nights: and the Lord heard me at that time also, and the Lord would not destroy you.
11 And the Lord said to me, Go, set out before this people, and let them go in and inherit the land, which I sware to their fathers to give to them.
12 And now, Israel, what does the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, and 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;
13 to keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and his ordinances, all that I charge thee to-day, that it may be well with thee?
14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens belong to the Lord thy God, the earth and all things that are in it.
15 Only the Lord chose your fathers to love them, and he chose out their seed after them, even you, beyond all nations, as at this day.
16 Therefore ye shall circumcise the hardness of your heart, and ye shall not harden your neck.
17 For the Lord your God, he is God of gods, and the Lord of lords, the great, and strong, and terrible God, who does not accept persons, nor will he by any means accept a bribe:
18 executing judgment for the stranger and orphan and widow, and he loves the stranger to give him food and raiment.
19 And ye shall love the stranger; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
20 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt cleave to him, and shalt swear by his name.
21 He is thy boast, and he is thy God, who has wrought in the midst of thee these great and glorious things, which thine eyes have seen.
22 With seventy souls your fathers went down
into Egypt; but the Lord thy God has made thee as the stars of heaven in
