X Deuteronomy

1:1 These are the words which Moses spoke to all Israel on the east side of Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against Suf, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.

X Deuteronomy

1:2 (There are eleven days journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.)

X Deuteronomy

1:3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spoke to the children of Israel, according to all that YHWH had given him in commandment to them;

X Deuteronomy

1:4 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, who dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei:

X Deuteronomy

1:5 On the east side of Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare this law, saying,

X Deuteronomy

1:6 YHWH our Elohim spoke to us in Horeb, saying, You* have dwelt long enough in this mount:

X Deuteronomy

1:7 Turn you*, and take your* journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and to all the places near to it, in the plain, on the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea-side, to the land of the Canaanites, and to Lebanon, to the great river, the river Euphrates.

X Deuteronomy

1:8 Behold, I have set the land before you*: go in and possess the land which YHWH swore to your* fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them and to their seed after them.

X Deuteronomy

1:9 And I spoke to you* at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you* myself alone:

X Deuteronomy

1:10 YHWH your* Elohim has multiplied you*, and behold, you* are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.

X Deuteronomy

1:11 (YHWH Elohim of your* fathers make you* a thousand times so many more as you* are, and bless you*, as he has promised you*!)

X Deuteronomy

1:12 How can I alone bear your* encumbrance, and your* burden, and your* strife?

X Deuteronomy

1:13 Take you* wise men, and understanding, and known among your* tribes, and I will make them rulers over you*.

X Deuteronomy

1:14 And you* answered me, and said, The thing which you have spoken is good for us to do.

X Deuteronomy

1:15 So I took the chief of your* tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you*, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your* tribes.

X Deuteronomy

1:16 And I charged your* judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your* brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

X Deuteronomy

1:17 You* shall not respect persons in judgment; but you* shall hear the small as well as the great; you* shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is Elohim's: and the cause that is too hard for you*, bring to me, and I will hear it.

X Deuteronomy

1:18 And I commanded you* at that time all the things which you* should do.

X Deuteronomy

1:19 And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which you* saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as YHWH our Elohim commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.

X Deuteronomy

1:20 And I said to you*, You* have come to the mountain of the Amorites, which YHWH our Elohim does give to us.

X Deuteronomy

1:21 Behold, YHWH your Elohim has set the land before you: go up and possess it, as YHWH Elohim of your fathers has said to you; fear not, neither be discouraged.

X Deuteronomy

1:22 And you* came near to me every one of you*, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall explore the land for us, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.

X Deuteronomy

1:23 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you*, one of a tribe:

X Deuteronomy

1:24 And they turned and ascended the mountain, and came to the valley of Eshcol, and explored it.

X Deuteronomy

1:25 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down to us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a good land which YHWH our Elohim does give us.

X Deuteronomy

1:26 Although, you* would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of YHWH your* Elohim:

X Deuteronomy

1:27 And you* murmured in your* tents, and said, Because YHWH hated us, he has brought us forth from the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.

X Deuteronomy

1:28 Where shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people are greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover, we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.

X Deuteronomy

1:29 Then I said to you*, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.

X Deuteronomy

1:30 YHWH your* Elohim who goes before you*; he shall fight for you*, according to all that he did for you* in Egypt before your* eyes;

X Deuteronomy

1:31 And in the wilderness, where you have seen how YHWH your Elohim bore you, as a man does bear his son, in all the way that you* went, until you* came into this place.

X Deuteronomy

1:32 Yet in this thing you* did not believe YHWH your* Elohim,

X Deuteronomy

1:33 Who went in the way before you*, to search out for you* a place to pitch your* tents in, in fire by night, to show you* by what way you* should go, and in a cloud by day.

X Deuteronomy

1:34 And YHWH heard the voice of your* words, and was angry, and swore, saying,

X Deuteronomy

1:35 Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I swore to give to your* fathers,

X Deuteronomy

1:36 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he has trod upon, and to his children, because he has wholly followed YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

1:37 Also YHWH was angry with me for your* sakes, saying, You also shall not go in toward that place.

X Deuteronomy

1:38 But Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in toward that place. Encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.

X Deuteronomy

1:39 Moreover, your* little ones, which you* said should be a prey, and your* children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in toward that place, and to them will I give it, and they shall possess it.

X Deuteronomy

1:40 But as for you*, turn you*, and take your* journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.

X Deuteronomy

1:41 Then you* answered and said to me, We have sinned against YHWH, we will go up and fight, according to all that YHWH our Elohim commanded us. And when you* had girded on every man his weapons of war, you* were ready to ascend the hill.

X Deuteronomy

1:42 And YHWH said to me, Say to them, Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you*; lest you* be smitten before your* enemies.

X Deuteronomy

1:43 So I spoke to you*; and you* would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of YHWH, and presumptuously ascended the hill.

X Deuteronomy

1:44 And the Amorites, who dwelt on that mountain, came out against you*, and chased you*, as bees do, and destroyed you* in Seir, even to Hormah.

X Deuteronomy

1:45 And you* returned and wept before YHWH; but YHWH would not listen to your* voice, nor give ear to you*.

X Deuteronomy

1:46 So you* abode in Kadesh many days, according to the days that you* abode there.

X Deuteronomy

2:1 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as YHWH spoke to me: and we compassed mount Seir many days.

X Deuteronomy

2:2 And YHWH spoke to me, saying,

X Deuteronomy

2:3 You* have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you* northward.

X Deuteronomy

2:4 And command you the people, saying, You* are to pass through the border of your* brethren the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir; and they will be afraid of you*: therefore take you* good heed to yourselves*:

X Deuteronomy

2:5 Meddle not with them; for I will not give you* of their land, no, not so much as a foot-breadth; because I have given mount Seir to Esau for a possession.

X Deuteronomy

2:6 You* shall buy food of them for money, that you* may eat; and you* shall also buy water of them for money, that you* may drink.

X Deuteronomy

2:7 For YHWH your Elohim has blessed you in all the works of your hand: he knows your walking through this great wilderness: these forty years YHWH your Elohim has been with you: you have lacked nothing.

X Deuteronomy

2:8 And when we passed by from our brethren the children of Esau, who dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from Elath, and from Ezion-gaber, we turned and passed by the way of the wilderness of Moab.

X Deuteronomy

2:9 And YHWH said to me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give you of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar to the children of Lot for a possession.

X Deuteronomy

2:10 (The Emims dwelt in it in times past, a people great, and many, and tall as the Anakims;

X Deuteronomy

2:11 Who also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.

X Deuteronomy

2:12 The Horims also dwelt formerly in Seir, but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did to the land of his possession, which YHWH gave to them.)

X Deuteronomy

2:13 Now rise, said I, and pass over the brook Zered: and we went over the brook Zered.

X Deuteronomy

2:14 And the space in which we came from Kadesh-barnea, until we passed the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all the generation of the men of war were wasted from among the host, as YHWH swore to them.

X Deuteronomy

2:15 For indeed the hand of YHWH was against them, to destroy them from among the host, until they were consumed.

X Deuteronomy

2:16 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and dead from among the people,

X Deuteronomy

2:17 That YHWH spoke to me, saying,

X Deuteronomy

2:18 You are to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:

X Deuteronomy

2:19 And when you come near over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give you of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it to the children of Lot for a possession.

X Deuteronomy

2:20 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt in it in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;

X Deuteronomy

2:21 A people great, and many, and tall as the Anakims; but YHWH destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead:

X Deuteronomy

2:22 As he did to the children of Esau, who dwelt in Seir, when he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead even to this day:

X Deuteronomy

2:23 And the Avims who dwelt in Hazerim even to Azzah, the Caphtorims, who came forth from Caphtor, destroyed them, and dwelt in their stead.)

X Deuteronomy

2:24 Arise you*, take your* journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.

X Deuteronomy

2:25 This day will I begin to put the dread of you and the fear of you upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of you, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of you.

X Deuteronomy

2:26 And I sent messengers from the wilderness of Kedemoth to Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,

X Deuteronomy

2:27 Let me pass through your land: I will go along by the highway, I will neither turn to the right hand nor to the left.

X Deuteronomy

2:28 You shall sell me food for money, that I may eat; and give me water for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through on my feet;

X Deuteronomy

2:29 (As the children of Esau who dwell in Seir, and the Moabites who dwell in Ar, did to me;) until I shall pass over Jordan into the land which YHWH our Elohim gives us.

X Deuteronomy

2:30 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for YHWH your Elohim hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into your hand, as appears this day.

X Deuteronomy

2:31 And YHWH said to me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land before you: begin to possess, that you may inherit his land.

X Deuteronomy

2:32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.

X Deuteronomy

2:33 And YHWH our Elohim delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.

X Deuteronomy

2:34 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones of every city, we left none to remain.

X Deuteronomy

2:35 Only the cattle we took for a prey to ourselves, and the spoil of the cities which we took.

X Deuteronomy

2:36 From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and from the city that is by the river, even to Gilead, there was not one city too strong for us: YHWH our Elohim delivered all to us:

X Deuteronomy

2:37 Only to the land of the children of Ammon you came not, nor to any place of the river Jabbok, nor to the cities on the mountains, nor to whatever YHWH our Elohim forbad us.

X Deuteronomy

3:1 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.

X Deuteronomy

3:2 And YHWH said to me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into your hand; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.

X Deuteronomy

3:3 So YHWH our Elohim delivered into our hands Og also the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.

X Deuteronomy

3:4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, sixty cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

X Deuteronomy

3:5 All these cities were fortified with high walls, gates, and bars; besides unwalled towns a great number.

X Deuteronomy

3:6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children of every city.

X Deuteronomy

3:7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.

X Deuteronomy

3:8 And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that was on this side of Jordan, from the river of Arnon to mount Hermon;

X Deuteronomy

3:9 (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)

X Deuteronomy

3:10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, to Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

X Deuteronomy

3:11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length of it, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.

X Deuteronomy

3:12 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and its cities, I gave to the Reubenites and to the Gadites.

X Deuteronomy

3:13 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.

X Deuteronomy

3:14 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob, to the borders of Geshuri, and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashan-havoth-jair, to this day.

X Deuteronomy

3:15 And I gave Gilead to Machir.

X Deuteronomy

3:16 And to the Reubenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilead even to the river Arnon half the valley, and the border even to the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon:

X Deuteronomy

3:17 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast of it, from Chinnereth even to the sea of the plain, even the salt-sea, under Ashdoth-pisgah eastward.

X Deuteronomy

3:18 And I commanded you* at that time, saying, YHWH your* Elohim has given you* this land to possess it; you* shall pass over armed before your* brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.

X Deuteronomy

3:19 But your* wives, and your* little ones, and your* cattle, (for I know that you* have many cattle,) shall abide in your* cities which I have given you*;

X Deuteronomy

3:20 Until YHWH shall have given rest to your* brethren, as well as to you*, and until they also possess the land which YHWH your* Elohim has given them beyond Jordan: and then shall you* return every man to his possession which I have given you*.

X Deuteronomy

3:21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Your eyes have seen all that YHWH your* Elohim has done to these two kings: so shall YHWH do to all the kingdoms where you passest.

X Deuteronomy

3:22 You* shall not fear them: for YHWH your* Elohim he shall fight for you*.

X Deuteronomy

3:23 And I besought YHWH at that time, saying,

X Deuteronomy

3:24 O Sovereign YHWH, you have begun to show your servant your greatness, and your mighty hand: for what Elohim is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to your works, and according to your might?

X Deuteronomy

3:25 I pray you, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.

X Deuteronomy

3:26 But YHWH was angry with me for your* sakes, and would not hear me: and YHWH said to me, Let it suffice you; speak no more to me of this matter.

X Deuteronomy

3:27 Ascend to the top of Pisgah, and lift up your eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold with your eyes: for you shall not go over this Jordan.

X Deuteronomy

3:28 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which you shall see.

X Deuteronomy

3:29 So we abode in the valley over against Beth-peor.

X Deuteronomy

4:1 Now therefore listen, O Israel, to the statutes and to the judgments, which I teach you*, to do them, that you* may live, and go in and possess the land which YHWH Elohim of your* fathers gives you*.

X Deuteronomy

4:2 You* shall not add to the word which I command you*, neither shall you* diminish aught from it, that you* may keep the commandments of YHWH your* Elohim which I command you*.

X Deuteronomy

4:3 Your* eyes have seen what YHWH did because of Baal-peor: for all the men that followed Baal-peor, YHWH your Elohim has destroyed them from among you*.

X Deuteronomy

4:4 But you* who adhered to YHWH your* Elohim, are alive every one of you* this day.

X Deuteronomy

4:5 Behold, I have taught you* statutes, and judgments, even as YHWH my Elohim commanded me, that you* should do so in the land where you* go to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

4:6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your* wisdom and your* understanding in the sight of the nations, which will hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

X Deuteronomy

4:7 For what nation is there so great, which has Elohim so near to them, as YHWH our Elohim is in all things that we call upon him for?

X Deuteronomy

4:8 And what nation is there so great, that has statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you* this day?

X Deuteronomy

4:9 Only take heed to yourself, and keep your soul diligently, lest you should forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life: but teach them to your sons, and your sons' sons:

X Deuteronomy

4:10 Specially the day that you stoodest before YHWH your Elohim in Horeb, when YHWH said to me, Assemble the people to me, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

X Deuteronomy

4:11 And you* came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire to the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

X Deuteronomy

4:12 And YHWH spoke to you* out of the midst of the fire: you* heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only you* heard a voice.

X Deuteronomy

4:13 And he declared to you* his covenant, which he commanded you* to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

X Deuteronomy

4:14 And YHWH commanded me at that time to teach you* statutes and judgments, that you* might do them in the land where you* go over to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

4:15 Take you* therefore good heed to yourselves*; for you* saw no manner of similitude on the day that YHWH spoke to you* in Horeb out of the midst of the fire;

X Deuteronomy

4:16 Lest you* corrupt yourselves*, and make to you* a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

X Deuteronomy

4:17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flies in the air,

X Deuteronomy

4:18 The likeness of any thing that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:

X Deuteronomy

4:19 And lest you should lift up your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, should be driven to worship them, and serve them, which YHWH your Elohim has divided to all nations under the whole heaven.

X Deuteronomy

4:20 But YHWH has taken you*, and brought you* out of the iron furnace, even from Egypt, to be to him a people of inheritance, as you* are this day.

X Deuteronomy

4:21 Furthermore YHWH was angry with me for your* sakes, and swore that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not enter that good land which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance:

X Deuteronomy

4:22 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but you* shall go over, and possess that good land.

X Deuteronomy

4:23 Take heed to yourselves*, lest you* forget the covenant of YHWH your* Elohim, which he made with you*, and make you* a graven image, or the likeness of any thing which YHWH your Elohim has forbidden you.

X Deuteronomy

4:24 For YHWH your Elohim is a consuming fire, even a jealous Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

4:25 When you shall beget children, and children's children, and you* shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves*, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of YHWH your Elohim, to provoke him to anger:

X Deuteronomy

4:26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you* this day, that you* shall soon utterly perish from the land to which you* go over Jordan to possess it; you* shall not prolong your* days upon it, but shall be utterly destroyed.

X Deuteronomy

4:27 And YHWH shall scatter you* among the nations, and you* shall be left few in number among the heathen, where YHWH shall lead you*.

X Deuteronomy

4:28 And there you* shall serve elohims, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

X Deuteronomy

4:29 But if from that place you shall seek YHWH your Elohim, you shall find him, if you shall seek him with all your heart, and with all your soul.

X Deuteronomy

4:30 When you are in tribulation, and all these things have come upon you, even in the latter days, if you shall turn to YHWH your Elohim, and shall be obedient to his voice;

X Deuteronomy

4:31 (For YHWH your Elohim is a merciful Elohim;) he will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers, which he swore to them.

X Deuteronomy

4:32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that Elohim created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven to the other, whether there has been any such thing as this great thing is, or has been heard like it?

X Deuteronomy

4:33 Did ever people hear the voice of Elohim speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live?

X Deuteronomy

4:34 Or has Elohim essayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by an out-stretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that YHWH your* Elohim did for you* in Egypt before your* eyes?

X Deuteronomy

4:35 To you it was shown, that you might know that YHWH he is Elohim; there is none besides him.

X Deuteronomy

4:36 Out of heaven he made you to hear his voice, that he might instruct you; and upon earth he showed you his great fire; and you heard his words from the midst of the fire.

X Deuteronomy

4:37 And because he loved your fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought you out of Egypt in his sight with his mighty power.

X Deuteronomy

4:38 To drive out nations from before you, greater and mightier than you are, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.

X Deuteronomy

4:39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in your heart, that YHWH he is Elohim in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.

X Deuteronomy

4:40 You shall keep therefore his statutes and his commandments which I command you this day, that it may be well with you, and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days upon the earth, which YHWH your Elohim gives you, forever.

X Deuteronomy

4:41 Then Moses set apart three cities on the side of Jordan, towards the sun-rising;

X Deuteronomy

4:42 That the slayer might flee toward that place, who should kill his neighbor unawares, and when he had not hated him in times past; and that fleeing to one of these cities he might live:

X Deuteronomy

4:43 Namely, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, of the Manassites.

X Deuteronomy

4:44 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

4:45 These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Moses spoke to the children of Israel, after they came forth from Egypt,

X Deuteronomy

4:46 On the east side of Jordan, in the valley over against Beth-Peor, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, after they had come forth from Egypt:

X Deuteronomy

4:47 And they possessed his land, and the land of Og king of Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, who were on the side of Jordan, towards the sun-rising;

X Deuteronomy

4:48 From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even to mount Sion, which is Hermon,

X Deuteronomy

4:49 And all the plain on the side of Jordan eastward, even to the sea of the plain, under the springs of Pisgah.

X Deuteronomy

5:1 And Moses called all Israel, and said to them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your* ears this day, that you* may learn them, and keep, and do them.

X Deuteronomy

5:2 YHWH our Elohim made a covenant with us in Horeb.

X Deuteronomy

5:3 YHWH made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day.

X Deuteronomy

5:4 YHWH talked with you* face to face on the mount, from the midst of the fire,

X Deuteronomy

5:5 (I stood between YHWH and you* at that time, to show you* the word of YHWH: for you* were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up upon the mount;) saying,

X Deuteronomy

5:6 I am YHWH your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

X Deuteronomy

5:7 You shall have no other elohims before me.

X Deuteronomy

5:8 You shall not make for you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

X Deuteronomy

5:9 You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I YHWH your Elohim am a jealous Elohim, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

X Deuteronomy

5:10 And showing mercy to thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

X Deuteronomy

5:11 You shall not take the name of YHWH your Elohim in vain: for YHWH will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain.

X Deuteronomy

5:12 Keep the sabbath-day to sanctify it, as YHWH your Elohim has commanded you.

X Deuteronomy

5:13 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work:

X Deuteronomy

5:14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of YHWH your Elohim: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates; that your man-servant and your maid-servant may rest as well as you.

X Deuteronomy

5:15 And remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and that YHWH your Elohim brought you out that place with a mighty hand and by an out-stretched arm: therefore YHWH your Elohim commanded you to keep the sabbath-day.

X Deuteronomy

5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as YHWH your Elohim has commanded you; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may be well with you, in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you.

X Deuteronomy

5:17 You shall not kill.

X Deuteronomy

5:18 Neither shall you commit adultery.

X Deuteronomy

5:19 Neither shall you steal.

X Deuteronomy

5:20 Neither shall you bear false witness against your neighbor.

X Deuteronomy

5:21 Neither shall you desire your neighbor's wife, neither shall you covet your neighbor's house, his field, or his man-servant, or his maid-servant, his ox, or his donkey, or any thing that is your neighbor's.

X Deuteronomy

5:22 These words YHWH spoke to all your* assembly on the mount from the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them to me.

X Deuteronomy

5:23 And it came to pass, when you* heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that you* came near to me, even all the heads of your* tribes, and your* elders;

X Deuteronomy

5:24 And you* said, Behold, YHWH our Elohim has shown us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice from the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that Elohim does talk with man, and he lives.

X Deuteronomy

5:25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of YHWH our Elohim any more, then we shall die.

X Deuteronomy

5:26 For who is there of all flesh that has heard the voice of the living Elohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

X Deuteronomy

5:27 Go you near, and hear all that YHWH our Elohim shall say; and speak you to us all that YHWH our Elohim shall speak to you; and we will hear it, and do it.

X Deuteronomy

5:28 And YHWH heard the voice of your* words, when you* spoke to me; and YHWH said to me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoke to you: they have well said all that they have spoken.

X Deuteronomy

5:29 O that there were such a heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children forever!

X Deuteronomy

5:30 Go, say to them, Return to your* tents again.

X Deuteronomy

5:31 But as for you, stand you here by me, and I will speak to you all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which you shall teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

5:32 You* shall observe to do therefore as YHWH your* Elohim has commanded you*: you* shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

X Deuteronomy

5:33 You* shall walk in all the ways which YHWH your* Elohim has commanded you*, that you* may live, and that it may be well with you*, and that you* may prolong your* days in the land which you* shall possess.

X Deuteronomy

6:1 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments which YHWH your* Elohim commanded to teach you*, that you* may do them in the land where you* go to possess it:

X Deuteronomy

6:2 That you may fear YHWH your Elohim, to keep all his statutes and his commandments which I command you, you, and your son, and your son's son, all the days of your life: and that your days may be prolonged.

X Deuteronomy

6:3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with you, and that you* may increase mightily, as YHWH Elohim of your fathers has promised you, in the land that flows with milk and honey.

X Deuteronomy

6:4 Hear, O Israel: YHWH our Elohim is one YHWH:

X Deuteronomy

6:5 And you shall love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.

X Deuteronomy

6:6 And these words which I command you this day, shall be in your heart:

X Deuteronomy

6:7 And you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you risest up.

X Deuteronomy

6:8 And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.

X Deuteronomy

6:9 And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates.

X Deuteronomy

6:10 And it shall be, when YHWH your Elohim shall have brought you into the land which he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you great and goodly cities, which you did not build,

X Deuteronomy

6:11 And houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, and wells digged, which you did not dig, vineyards and olive-trees, which you did not plant; when you shall have eaten and be full;

X Deuteronomy

6:12 Then beware lest you should forget YHWH, who brought you forth from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

X Deuteronomy

6:13 You shall fear YHWH your Elohim, and serve him, and shall swear by his name.

X Deuteronomy

6:14 You* shall not go after other elohims, of the elohims of the people which are around you*;

X Deuteronomy

6:15 (For YHWH your Elohim is a jealous Elohim among you*) lest the anger of YHWH your Elohim should be kindled against you, and destroy you from off the face of the earth.

X Deuteronomy

6:16 You* shall not tempt YHWH your* Elohim, as you* tempted him in Massah.

X Deuteronomy

6:17 You* shall diligently keep the commandments of YHWH your* Elohim, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he has commanded you.

X Deuteronomy

6:18 And you shall do that which is right and good in the sight of YHWH: that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land which YHWH swore to your fathers,

X Deuteronomy

6:19 To cast out all your enemies from before you, as YHWH has spoken.

X Deuteronomy

6:20 And when your son shall ask you in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which YHWH our Elohim has commanded you*?

X Deuteronomy

6:21 Then you shall say to your son, We were Pharoah's bond-men in Egypt: and YHWH brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:

X Deuteronomy

6:22 And YHWH showed signs and wonders, great and distressing, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:

X Deuteronomy

6:23 And he brought us out from that place, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he swore to our fathers.

X Deuteronomy

6:24 And YHWH commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear YHWH our Elohim, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

X Deuteronomy

6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before YHWH our Elohim, as he has commanded us.

X Deuteronomy

7:1 When YHWH your Elohim shall bring you into the land where you go to possess it, and has cast out many nations before you, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perrizites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you;

X Deuteronomy

7:2 And when YHWH your Elohim shall deliver them before you, you shall smite them and utterly destroy them, you shall make no covenant with them, nor show mercy to them:

X Deuteronomy

7:3 Neither shall you make marriages with them; your daughter you shall not give to his son, nor his daughter shall you take to your son.

X Deuteronomy

7:4 For they will turn away your son from following me, that they may serve other elohims: so will the anger of YHWH be kindled against you*, and destroy you suddenly.

X Deuteronomy

7:5 But thus shall you* deal with them; you* shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.

X Deuteronomy

7:6 For you are a holy people to YHWH your Elohim: YHWH your Elohim has chosen you to be a special people to himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

X Deuteronomy

7:7 YHWH did not set his love upon you*, nor choose you*, because you* were more in number than any people; for you* were the fewest of all people:

X Deuteronomy

7:8 But because YHWH loved you*, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn to your* fathers, has YHWH brought you* out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you* from the house of bond-men, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

X Deuteronomy

7:9 Know therefore that YHWH your Elohim, he is Elohim, the faithful Elohim, who keeps covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations:

X Deuteronomy

7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hates him, he will repay him to his face.

X Deuteronomy

7:11 You shall therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command you this day, to do them.

X Deuteronomy

7:12 Therefore it shall come to pass, if you* listen to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that YHWH your Elohim will keep to you the covenant and the mercy which he swore to your fathers:

X Deuteronomy

7:13 And he will love you, and bless you, and multiply you: he will also bless your children, and the fruit of your land, your grain, and your wine, and your oil, the increase of your kine, and the flocks of your sheep, in the land which he swore to your fathers to give you.

X Deuteronomy

7:14 You shall be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you*, or among your* cattle.

X Deuteronomy

7:15 And YHWH will take away from you all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt (which you know) upon you; but will lay them upon all them that hate you.

X Deuteronomy

7:16 And you shall consume all the people which YHWH your Elohim shall deliver to you; your eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shall you serve their elohims; for that will be a snare to you.

X Deuteronomy

7:17 If you shall say in your heart, These nations are more than I, how can I dispossess them?

X Deuteronomy

7:18 You shall not be afraid of them: but shall well remember what YHWH your Elohim did to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt;

X Deuteronomy

7:19 The great temptations which your eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the out-stretched arm, by which YHWH your Elohim brought you out: so shall YHWH your Elohim do to all the people of whom you are afraid.

X Deuteronomy

7:20 Moreover, YHWH your Elohim will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from you, shall be destroyed.

X Deuteronomy

7:21 You shall not be frightened at them: for YHWH your Elohim is among you*, a mighty Elohim and terrible.

X Deuteronomy

7:22 And YHWH your Elohim will drive out those nations before you by little and little: you may not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon you.

X Deuteronomy

7:23 But YHWH your Elohim shall deliver them to you, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they are destroyed.

X Deuteronomy

7:24 And he shall deliver their kings into your hand, and you shall destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before you, until you shall have destroyed them.

X Deuteronomy

7:25 The graven images of their elohims shall you* burn with fire: you shall not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it to you, lest you should be snared in it: for it is an abomination to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

7:26 Neither shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you should be a cursed thing like it: but you shall utterly detest it, and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

X Deuteronomy

8:1 All the commandments which I command you this day shall you* observe to do, that you* may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which YHWH swore to your* fathers.

X Deuteronomy

8:2 And you shall remember all the way which YHWH your Elohim has led you these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you, and to prove you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or not.

X Deuteronomy

8:3 And he humbled you, and suffered you to hunger, and fed you with manna, which you knew not, neither did your fathers know; that he might make you know that man does not live by bread only, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of YHWH does man live.

X Deuteronomy

8:4 Your raiment has not become old upon you, neither has your foot swelled these forty years.

X Deuteronomy

8:5 You shall also consider in your heart, that as a man chastens his son, so YHWH your Elohim chastens you.

X Deuteronomy

8:6 Therefore you shall keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

X Deuteronomy

8:7 For YHWH your Elohim brings you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains, and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;

X Deuteronomy

8:8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig-trees, and pomegranates, a land of olive-oil, and honey;

X Deuteronomy

8:9 A land in which you shall eat bread without scarceness, you shall not lack any thing in it, a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you may dig brass.

X Deuteronomy

8:10 When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless YHWH your Elohim for the good land which he has given you.

X Deuteronomy

8:11 Beware that you forget not YHWH your Elohim, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command you this day:

X Deuteronomy

8:12 Lest when you have eaten, and are full, and have built goodly houses, and dwelt in them;

X Deuteronomy

8:13 And when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are increased, and all that you have is increased;

X Deuteronomy

8:14 Then your heart shall be lifted up, and you shall forget YHWH your Elohim (who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;)

X Deuteronomy

8:15 Who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought you forth water out of the rock of flint;

X Deuteronomy

8:16 Who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers knew not, that he might humble you, and that he might prove you, to do you good at your latter end.

X Deuteronomy

8:17 And you shall say in your heart, My power and the might of my hand has gotten me this wealth.

X Deuteronomy

8:18 But you shall remember YHWH your Elohim: for it is he that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

X Deuteronomy

8:19 And it shall be, if you shall at all forget YHWH your Elohim, and walk after other elohims, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you* this day that you* shall surely perish.

X Deuteronomy

8:20 As the nations which YHWH destroys before your* face, so shall you* perish; because you* would not be obedient to the voice of YHWH your* Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

9:1 Hear, O Israel: You are to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than yourself, cities great and fortified up to heaven,

X Deuteronomy

9:2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom you know, and of whom you have heard it said, Who can stand before the children of Anak!

X Deuteronomy

9:3 Understand therefore this day, that YHWH your Elohim is he who goes over before you; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before your face: so shall you drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as YHWH has said to you.

X Deuteronomy

9:4 Speak not you in your heart, after that YHWH your Elohim has cast them out from before you, saying, For my righteousness YHWH has brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations YHWH does drive them out from before you.

X Deuteronomy

9:5 Not for your righteousness, or for the uprightness of your heart do you go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations, YHWH your Elohim does drive them out from before you, and that he may perform the word which YHWH swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

X Deuteronomy

9:6 Understand therefore, that YHWH your Elohim gives you not this good land to possess it for your righteousness; for you are a stiff-necked people.

X Deuteronomy

9:7 Remember, and forget not, how you provokedst YHWH your Elohim to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that you did depart from the land of Egypt, until you* came to this place, you* have been rebellious against YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

9:8 Also in Horeb you* provoked YHWH to wrath, so that YHWH was angry with you* to have destroyed you*.

X Deuteronomy

9:9 When I ascended the mount, to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant which YHWH made with you*, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither ate bread, nor drank water:

X Deuteronomy

9:10 And YHWH delivered to me two tables of stone written with the finger of Elohim; and on them was written according to all the words which YHWH spoke with you* in the mount, from the midst of the fire, in the day of the assembly.

X Deuteronomy

9:11 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, that YHWH gave me the two tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant.

X Deuteronomy

9:12 And YHWH said to me, Arise, go down quickly from here; for your people which you have brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside from the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten image.

X Deuteronomy

9:13 Furthermore, YHWH spoke to me, saying, I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people:

X Deuteronomy

9:14 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from under heaven: and I will make of you a nation mightier and greater than they.

X Deuteronomy

9:15 So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two hands.

X Deuteronomy

9:16 And I looked, and behold, you* had sinned against YHWH your* Elohim, and had made you* a molten calf: you* had turned aside quickly from the way which YHWH had commanded you*.

X Deuteronomy

9:17 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and broke them before your* eyes.

X Deuteronomy

9:18 And I fell down before YHWH, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I neither ate bread, nor drank water, because of all your* sins which you* sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of YHWH, to provoke him to anger.

X Deuteronomy

9:19 (For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure with which YHWH was angry against you* to destroy you*.) But YHWH listened to me at that time also.

X Deuteronomy

9:20 And YHWH was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also at the same time.

X Deuteronomy

9:21 And I took your* sin, the calf which you* had made, and burnt it with fire, and stamped it, and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust of it into the brook that descended from the mount.

X Deuteronomy

9:22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and Kibroth-hattaavah, you* provoked YHWH to wrath.

X Deuteronomy

9:23 Likewise when YHWH sent you* from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you*; then you* rebelled against the commandment of YHWH your* Elohim, and you* believed him not, nor listened to his voice.

X Deuteronomy

9:24 You* have been rebellious against YHWH from the day that I knew you*.

X Deuteronomy

9:25 Thus I fell down before YHWH forty days and forty nights, as I fell down at the first; because YHWH had said he would destroy you*.

X Deuteronomy

9:26 I prayed therefore to YHWH, and said, O Sovereign YHWH, destroy not your people and your inheritance, which you have redeemed through your greatness, which you have brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

X Deuteronomy

9:27 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not to the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin:

X Deuteronomy

9:28 Lest the land from which you have brought us should say, Because YHWH was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them, and because he hated them, he has brought them out to slay them in the wilderness.

X Deuteronomy

9:29 Yet they are your people and your inheritance which you have brought out by your mighty power and by your out-stretched arm.

X Deuteronomy

10:1 At that time YHWH said to me, Hew you two tables of stone like the first, and come up to me upon the mount, and make you an ark of wood.

X Deuteronomy

10:2 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which you did break, and you shall put them in the ark.

X Deuteronomy

10:3 And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like the first, and ascended the mount, having the two tables in my hand.

X Deuteronomy

10:4 And he wrote on the tables according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which YHWH spoke to you* in the mount, from the midst of the fire, in the day of the assembly: and YHWH gave them to me.

X Deuteronomy

10:5 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they are, as YHWH commanded me.

X Deuteronomy

10:6 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of the children of Jakan to Mosira: there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his stead.

X Deuteronomy

10:7 From that place they journeyed to Gudelohimah; and from Gudelohimah to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters.

X Deuteronomy

10:8 At that time YHWH separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of YHWH, to stand before YHWH to minister to him, and to bless in his name, to this day.

X Deuteronomy

10:9 Therefore Levi has no part nor inheritance with his brethren; YHWH is his inheritance, according as YHWH your Elohim promised him.

X Deuteronomy

10:10 And I stayed in the mount, according to the first-time, forty days and forty nights; and YHWH listened to me at that time also, and YHWH would not destroy you.

X Deuteronomy

10:11 And YHWH said to me, Arise, take your journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I swore to their fathers to give to them.

X Deuteronomy

10:12 And now, Israel, what does YHWH your Elohim require of you, but to fear YHWH your Elohim, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul,

X Deuteronomy

10:13 To keep the commandments of YHWH, and his statutes, which I command you this day for your good?

X Deuteronomy

10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens belongs to YHWH your Elohim, the earth also, with all that it contains.

X Deuteronomy

10:15 Only YHWH had a delight in your fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you* above all people, as it is this day.

X Deuteronomy

10:16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your* heart, and be no more stiff-necked.

X Deuteronomy

10:17 For YHWH your* Elohim is Elohim of elohims, and Master of masters, a great Elohim, a mighty, and a terrible, who regards not persons, nor takes reward:

X Deuteronomy

10:18 He executes the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loves the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.

X Deuteronomy

10:19 Love you* therefore the stranger: for you* were strangers in the land of Egypt.

X Deuteronomy

10:20 You shall fear YHWH your Elohim; him shall you serve, and to him shall you cleave, and swear by his name.

X Deuteronomy

10:21 He is your praise, and he is your Elohim, that has done for you these great and terrible things which your eyes have seen.

X Deuteronomy

10:22 Your fathers went down into Egypt with seventy persons; and now YHWH your Elohim has made you as the stars of heaven for multitude.

X Deuteronomy

11:1 Therefore you shall love YHWH your Elohim, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always.

X Deuteronomy

11:2 And know you* this day: for I speak not with your* children who have not known, and who have not seen the chastisement of YHWH your* Elohim, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his out-stretched arm,

X Deuteronomy

11:3 And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt, to Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and to all his land;

X Deuteronomy

11:4 And what he did to the army of Egypt, to their horses, and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow them as they pursued after you*, and how YHWH has destroyed them to this day;

X Deuteronomy

11:5 And what he did to you* in the wilderness, until you* came to this place;

X Deuteronomy

11:6 And what he did to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:

X Deuteronomy

11:7 But your* eyes have seen all the great acts of YHWH which he did.

X Deuteronomy

11:8 Therefore shall you* keep all the commandments which I command you* this day, that you* may be strong, and go in and possess the land, where you* go to possess it;

X Deuteronomy

11:9 And that you* may prolong your* days in the land which YHWH swore to your* fathers to give to them, and to their seed, a land that flows with milk and honey.

X Deuteronomy

11:10 For the land, where you go in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from what place you* came out, where you did sow your seed, and water it with your foot, as a garden of herbs:

X Deuteronomy

11:11 But the land, where you* go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinks water of the rain of heaven:

X Deuteronomy

11:12 A land which YHWH your Elohim cares for: the eyes of YHWH your Elohim are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even to the end of the year.

X Deuteronomy

11:13 And it shall come to pass, if you* shall listen diligently to my commandments which I command you* this day, to love YHWH your* Elohim, and to serve him with all your* heart and with all your* soul,

X Deuteronomy

11:14 That I will give you* the rain of your* land in its due season, the former rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, and your wine and your oil.

X Deuteronomy

11:15 And I will give grass in your fields for your cattle, that you may eat and be full.

X Deuteronomy

11:16 Take heed to yourselves*, that your* heart be not deceived, and you* turn aside, and serve other elohims, and worship them;

X Deuteronomy

11:17 And then YHWH'S wrath shall be kindled against you*, and he shall shut up the heaven, that there shall be no rain, and the land shall not yield her fruit; and lest you* perish quickly from off the good land which YHWH gives you*.

X Deuteronomy

11:18 Therefore shall you* lay up these my words in your* heart and in your* soul, and bind them for a sign upon your* hand, that they may be as frontlets between your* eyes.

X Deuteronomy

11:19 And you* shall teach them to your* children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you risest up.

X Deuteronomy

11:20 And you shall write them upon the door posts of your house, and upon your gates:

X Deuteronomy

11:21 That your* days may be multiplied, and the days of your* children, in the land which YHWH swore to your* fathers to give to them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

X Deuteronomy

11:22 For if you* shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you*, to do them, to love YHWH your* Elohim, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave to him;

X Deuteronomy

11:23 Then will YHWH drive out all these nations from before you*, and you* shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves*.

X Deuteronomy

11:24 Every place on which the soles of your* feet shall tread shall be yours*: from the wilderness, and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even to the uttermost sea shall your* limit be.

X Deuteronomy

11:25 There shall no man be able to stand before you*: for YHWH your* Elohim shall lay the fear of you*, and the dread of you* upon all the land that you* shall tread upon, as he has said to you*.

X Deuteronomy

11:26 Behold, I set before you* this day a blessing and a curse:

X Deuteronomy

11:27 A blessing, if you* obey the commandments of YHWH your* Elohim which I command you* this day;

X Deuteronomy

11:28 And a curse, if you* will not obey the commandments of YHWH your* Elohim, but turn aside from the way which I command you* this day, to go after other elohims which you* have not known.

X Deuteronomy

11:29 And it shall come to pass when YHWH your Elohim has brought you in to the land where you go to possess it, that you shall put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.

X Deuteronomy

11:30 Are they not on the other side of Jordan, by the way where the sun goes down in the land of the Canaanites, who dwell in the plain over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh?

X Deuteronomy

11:31 For you* shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land which YHWH your* Elohim gives you*, and you* shall possess it, and dwell in it.

X Deuteronomy

11:32 And you* shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you* this day.

X Deuteronomy

12:1 These are the statutes and judgments which you* shall observe to do in the land which YHWH Elohim of your fathers gives you to possess it, all the days that you* live upon the earth.

X Deuteronomy

12:2 You* shall utterly destroy all the places in which the nations which you* shall possess served their elohims, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:

X Deuteronomy

12:3 And you* shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and you* shall hew down the graven images of their elohims, and destroy the names of them out of that place.

X Deuteronomy

12:4 You* shall not do so to YHWH your* Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

12:5 But the place which YHWH your* Elohim shall choose out of all your* tribes to put his name there, even his habitation shall you* seek, and toward that place you shall come:

X Deuteronomy

12:6 And toward that place you* shall bring your* burnt-offerings, and your* sacrifices, and your* tithes, and heave-offerings of your* hand, and your* vows, and your* free-will-offerings, and the firstlings of your* herds, and of your* flocks:

X Deuteronomy

12:7 And there you* shall eat before YHWH your* Elohim, and you* shall rejoice in all that you* put your* hand to, you* and your* households, in which YHWH your Elohim has blessed you.

X Deuteronomy

12:8 You* shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatever is right in his own eyes.

X Deuteronomy

12:9 For you* are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance which YHWH your* Elohim gives you*.

X Deuteronomy

12:10 But when you* go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which YHWH your* Elohim gives you* to inherit, and when he gives you* rest from all your* enemies on every side, so that you* dwell in safety:

X Deuteronomy

12:11 Then there shall be a place which YHWH your* Elohim shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; toward that place shall you* bring all that I command you*; your* burnt-offerings, and your* sacrifices, your* tithes, and the heave-offering of your* hand, and all your* choice vows which you* vow to YHWH:

X Deuteronomy

12:12 And you* shall rejoice before YHWH your* Elohim, you*, and your* sons, and your* daughters, and your* men-servants, and your* maid-servants, and the Levite that is within your* gates; forasmuch as he has no part nor inheritance with you*.

X Deuteronomy

12:13 Take heed to yourself that you offer not your burnt-offerings in every place that you see:

X Deuteronomy

12:14 But in the place which YHWH shall choose in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt-offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you.

X Deuteronomy

12:15 Although, you may kill and eat flesh in all your gates, whatever your soul desires, according to the blessing of YHWH your Elohim which he has given you: the unclean and the clean may eat of it as of the roebuck, and as of the hart.

X Deuteronomy

12:16 Only you* shall not eat the blood; you* shall pour it upon the earth as water.

X Deuteronomy

12:17 You may not eat within your gates the tithe of your grain, or of your wine, or of your oil, or the firstlings of your herds or of your flock, nor any of your vows which you vowest, nor your free-will-offerings, or heave-offering of your hand:

X Deuteronomy

12:18 But you must eat them before YHWH your Elohim in the place which YHWH your Elohim shall choose, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your man-servant, and your maid-servant, and the Levite that is within your gates: and you shall rejoice before YHWH your Elohim in all that you put yours hands to.

X Deuteronomy

12:19 Take heed to yourself that you forsake not the Levite as long as you live upon the earth.

X Deuteronomy

12:20 When YHWH your Elohim shall enlarge your border, as he has promised you, and you shall say, I will eat flesh, because your soul longs to eat flesh; you may eat flesh, whatever your soul desires.

X Deuteronomy

12:21 If the place which YHWH your Elohim has chosen to put his name there, shall be too far from you, then you shall kill of your herd and of your flock, which YHWH has given you, as I have commanded you, and you shall eat in your gates whatever your soul desires.

X Deuteronomy

12:22 Even as the roebuck and the hart is eaten, so you shall eat them: the unclean and the clean shall eat of them alike.

X Deuteronomy

12:23 Only be sure that you eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and you may not eat the life with the flesh.

X Deuteronomy

12:24 You shall not eat it: you shall pour it upon the earth as water.

X Deuteronomy

12:25 You shall not eat it; that it may be well with you, and with your children after you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

12:26 Only your holy things which you have, and your vows, you shall take, and go to the place which YHWH shall choose:

X Deuteronomy

12:27 And you shall offer your burnt-offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of YHWH your Elohim: and the blood of your sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of YHWH your Elohim, and you shall eat the flesh.

X Deuteronomy

12:28 Observe and hear all these words which I command you, that it may be well with you, and with your children after you forever, when you do that which is good and right in the sight of YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

12:29 When YHWH your Elohim shall cut off the nations from before you, where you go to possess them, and you succeed them, and dwell in their land;

X Deuteronomy

12:30 Take heed to yourself that you be not snared by following them, after that they are destroyed from before you; and that you inquire not after their elohims, saying, How did these nations serve their elohims? even so will I do likewise.

X Deuteronomy

12:31 You shall not do so to YHWH your Elohim; for every abomination to YHWH which he hates have they done to their elohims; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their elohims.

X Deuteronomy

12:32 Whatever thing I command you*, observe to do it: you shall not add to it, nor diminish from it.

X Deuteronomy

13:1 If there arise among you* a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and give you a sign or a wonder.

X Deuteronomy

13:2 And the sign or the wonder shall come to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, Let us go after other elohims, which you have not known, and let us serve them;

X Deuteronomy

13:3 You shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for YHWH your* Elohim tries you*, to know whether you* love YHWH your* Elohim with all your* heart and with all your* soul.

X Deuteronomy

13:4 You* shall walk after YHWH your* Elohim, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you* shall serve him, and cleave to him.

X Deuteronomy

13:5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he has spoken to turn you* away from YHWH your* Elohim, who brought you* out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you* from the house of bondage, to thrust you out of the way which YHWH your Elohim commanded you to walk in. So shall you remove the evil from the midst of you.

X Deuteronomy

13:6 If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend, who is as your own soul, shall entice you secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other elohims, which you have not known, you, nor your fathers;

X Deuteronomy

13:7 Namely, of the elohims of the people who are around you*, near to you, or far off from you, from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth;

X Deuteronomy

13:8 You shall not consent to him, nor listen to him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him:

X Deuteronomy

13:9 But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.

X Deuteronomy

13:10 And you shall stone him with stones that he shall die; because he has sought to thrust you away from YHWH your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Egypt from the house of bondage.

X Deuteronomy

13:11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is, among you*.

X Deuteronomy

13:12 If you shall hear, in one of your cities, which YHWH your Elohim has given you to dwell there, saying,

X Deuteronomy

13:13 Certain men, the children of Belial, have gone out from among you*, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other elohims, which you* have not known;

X Deuteronomy

13:14 Then shall you inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and behold, if it is truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is worked among you*;

X Deuteronomy

13:15 You shall surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is in it, and its cattle, with the edge of the sword.

X Deuteronomy

13:16 And you shall gather all the spoil of it into the midst of its street, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil of it every whit, for YHWH your Elohim: and it shall be a heap forever; it shall not be built again.

X Deuteronomy

13:17 And there shall cleave naught of the cursed thing to your hand: that YHWH may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show you mercy, and have compassion upon you, and multiply you, as he has sworn to your fathers;

X Deuteronomy

13:18 When you shall listen to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to keep all his commandments which I command you this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

14:1 You* are the children of YHWH your* Elohim: you* shall not cut yourselves*, nor make any baldness between your* eyes for the dead.

X Deuteronomy

14:2 For you are a holy people to YHWH your Elohim, and YHWH has chosen you to be a peculiar people to himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

X Deuteronomy

14:3 You shall not eat any abominable thing.

X Deuteronomy

14:4 These are the beasts which you* shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,

X Deuteronomy

14:5 The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow-deer, and the wild-goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.

X Deuteronomy

14:6 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaves the cleft into two claws, and chews the cud among the beasts, that you* shall eat.

X Deuteronomy

14:7 Nevertheless, these you* shall not eat, of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean to you*.

X Deuteronomy

14:8 And the swine, because it divides the hoof, yet chews not the cud, is unclean to you*: you* shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.

X Deuteronomy

14:9 These you* shall eat, of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall you* eat:

X Deuteronomy

14:10 And whatever has not fins and scales you* may not eat; it is unclean to you*.

X Deuteronomy

14:11 Of all clean birds you* shall eat.

X Deuteronomy

14:12 But these are they of which you* shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,

X Deuteronomy

14:13 And the glede, and the kite, and the vultur after his kind,

X Deuteronomy

14:14 And every raven after his kind,

X Deuteronomy

14:15 And the owl, and the night-hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,

X Deuteronomy

14:16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,

X Deuteronomy

14:17 And the pelican, and the gier-eagle, and the cormorant,

X Deuteronomy

14:18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

X Deuteronomy

14:19 And every creeping animal that flies is unclean to you*: they shall not be eaten.

X Deuteronomy

14:20 But of all clean fowls you* may eat.

X Deuteronomy

14:21 You* shall not eat of any thing that dies of itself: you shall give it to the stranger that is in your gates, that he may eat it; or you may sell it to an alien: for you are a holy people to YHWH your Elohim. You shall not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

X Deuteronomy

14:22 You shall truly tithe all the increase of your seed, that the field brings forth year by year.

X Deuteronomy

14:23 And you shall eat before YHWH your Elohim, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks; that you may learn to fear YHWH your Elohim always.

X Deuteronomy

14:24 And if the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry it; or if the place is too far from you, which YHWH your Elohim shall choose to set his name there, when YHWH your Elohim has blessed you:

X Deuteronomy

14:25 Then shall you turn it into money, and bind up the money in your hand, and shall go to the place which YHWH your Elohim shall choose:

X Deuteronomy

14:26 And you shall bestow that money for whatever your soul desires, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatever your soul desires: and you shall eat there before YHWH your Elohim, and you shall rejoice, you, and your household.

X Deuteronomy

14:27 And the Levite that is within your gates, you shall not forsake him; for he has no part nor inheritance with you.

X Deuteronomy

14:28 At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the tithe of your increase the same year, and shall lay it up within your gates:

X Deuteronomy

14:29 And the Levite, (because he has no part nor inheritance with you) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are within your gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that YHWH your Elohim may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

X Deuteronomy

15:1 At the end of every seven years you shall make a release.

X Deuteronomy

15:2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lends aught to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother; because it is called YHWH'S release.

X Deuteronomy

15:3 Of a foreigner you may exact it again: but that which is yours with your brother your hand shall release:

X Deuteronomy

15:4 Save when there shall be no poor among you*; for YHWH shall greatly bless you in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance to possess it:

X Deuteronomy

15:5 Only if you shall carefully listen to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to observe to do all these commandments which I command you this day.

X Deuteronomy

15:6 For YHWH your Elohim shall bless you, as he promised you: and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; and you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you.

X Deuteronomy

15:7 If there shall be among you* a poor man of one of your brethren within any of your gates in your land which YHWH the Elohim gives you, you shall not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your poor brother:

X Deuteronomy

15:8 But you shall open your hand wide to him, and shall surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wants.

X Deuteronomy

15:9 Beware that there be not a thought in your wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and your eye shall be evil against your poor brother, and you shall give him naught; and he shall cry to YHWH against you, and it shall be sin to you.

X Deuteronomy

15:10 You shall surely give him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him: because that for this thing YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in all your works, and in all that you put your hand to.

X Deuteronomy

15:11 For the poor shall never cease from the land: therefore I command you, saying, You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor, and to your needy, in your land.

X Deuteronomy

15:12 And if your brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, shall be sold to you, and serve you six years; then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you.

X Deuteronomy

15:13 And when you send him out free from you, you shall not let him depart empty:

X Deuteronomy

15:14 You shall furnish him liberally out of your flock, and out of your floor, and out of your wine-press: of that with which YHWH your Elohim has blessed you you shall give to him.

X Deuteronomy

15:15 And you shall remember that you were a bond-man in the land of Egypt, and YHWH your Elohim redeemed you: therefore I command you this thing this day.

X Deuteronomy

15:16 And it shall be, if he shall say to you, I will not leave you; because he loves you and your house, because he is well with you;

X Deuteronomy

15:17 Then you shall take an awl, and thrust it through his ear into the door, and he shall be your servant forever. And also to your maid-servant you shall do likewise.

X Deuteronomy

15:18 It shall not seem hard to you, when you send him away free from you; for he has been of double the worth of a hired servant to you, in serving you six years: and YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in all that you do.

X Deuteronomy

15:19 All the firstling males that come of your herd and of your flock you shall sanctify to YHWH your Elohim: you shall do no work with the firstling of your bullock, nor shear the firstling of your sheep.

X Deuteronomy

15:20 You shall eat it before YHWH your Elohim year by year in the place which YHWH shall choose, you and your household.

X Deuteronomy

15:21 And if there is any blemish in it, as if it is lame, or blind, or has any ill blemish, you shall not sacrifice it to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

15:22 You shall eat it within your gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart.

X Deuteronomy

15:23 Only you shall not eat its blood; you shall pour it upon the ground as water.

X Deuteronomy

16:1 Observe the month Abib, and keep the passover to YHWH your Elohim: for in the month of Abib YHWH your Elohim brought you forth from Egypt by night.

X Deuteronomy

16:2 You shall therefore sacrifice the passover to YHWH your Elohim, of the flock and the herd, in the place which YHWH shall choose to place his name there.

X Deuteronomy

16:3 You shall eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shall you eat unleavened bread with it, even the bread of affliction; for you came forth from the land of Egypt in hurry: that you may remember the day when you came forth from the land of Egypt, all the days of your life.

X Deuteronomy

16:4 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with you in all your borders seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which you did sacrifice the first day at evening, remain all night until the morning.

X Deuteronomy

16:5 You may not sacrifice the passover within any of your gates, which YHWH your Elohim gives you.

X Deuteronomy

16:6 But at the place which YHWH your Elohim shall choose to place his name in, there you shall sacrifice the passover at evening, at the setting of the sun, at the time of your departure from Egypt.

X Deuteronomy

16:7 And you shall roast and eat it in the place which YHWH your Elohim shall choose: and you shall turn in the morning, and go to your tents.

X Deuteronomy

16:8 Six days you shall eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to YHWH your Elohim: in it you shall do no work.

X Deuteronomy

16:9 Seven weeks shall you number to you: begin to number the seven weeks from the time when you begin to put the sickle to the grain.

X Deuteronomy

16:10 And you shall keep the feast of weeks to YHWH your Elohim with a tribute of a free-will-offering of your hand, which you shall give to YHWH your Elohim, according as YHWH your Elohim has blessed you:

X Deuteronomy

16:11 And you shall rejoice before YHWH your Elohim, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your man-servant, and your maid-servant, and the Levite that is within your gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you*, in the place which YHWH your Elohim has chosen to place his name there.

X Deuteronomy

16:12 And you shall remember that you were a bond-man in Egypt: and you shall observe and do these statutes.

X Deuteronomy

16:13 You shall observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that you have gathered in your grain, and your wine.

X Deuteronomy

16:14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your man-servant, and your maid-servant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within your gates:

X Deuteronomy

16:15 Seven days shall you keep a solemn feast to YHWH your Elohim in the place which YHWH shall choose: because YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in all your increase, and in all the works of your hands, therefore you shall surely rejoice.

X Deuteronomy

16:16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before YHWH your Elohim in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before YHWH empty:

X Deuteronomy

16:17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of YHWH your Elohim which he has given you.

X Deuteronomy

16:18 Judges and officers shall you make you in all your gates, which YHWH your Elohim gives you, throughout your tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.

X Deuteronomy

16:19 You shall not shift judgment; you shall not respect persons, neither take a gift; for a gift does blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

X Deuteronomy

16:20 That which is altogether just shall you follow, that you may live, and inherit the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you.

X Deuteronomy

16:21 You shall not plant you a grove of any trees near to the altar of YHWH your Elohim, which you shall make for you.

X Deuteronomy

16:22 Neither shall you set you up any image; which YHWH your Elohim hates.

X Deuteronomy

17:1 You shall not sacrifice to YHWH your Elohim any bullock, or sheep, in which is blemish, or any evil favoredness: for that is an abomination to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

17:2 If there shall be found among you*, within any of your gates which YHWH your Elohim gives you, man or woman that has worked wickedness in the sight of of YHWH your Elohim, in transgressing his covenant,

X Deuteronomy

17:3 And has gone and served other elohims, and worshiped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

X Deuteronomy

17:4 And it shall be told you, and you have heard of it, and inquired diligently, and behold, it is true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is worked in Israel:

X Deuteronomy

17:5 Then shall you bring forth to your gates that man or that woman, who have committed that wicked thing, even that man or that woman, and shall stone them with stones, till they die.

X Deuteronomy

17:6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

X Deuteronomy

17:7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So you shall remove the evil from among you*.

X Deuteronomy

17:8 If there shall arise a matter too hard for you in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within your gates: then shall you arise, and go up to the place which YHWH your Elohim shall choose;

X Deuteronomy

17:9 And you shall come to the priests the Levites, and to the judge that shall be in those days, and inquire; and they shall show you the sentence of judgment:

X Deuteronomy

17:10 And you shall do according to the sentence, which they of that place which YHWH shall choose shall show you; and you shall observe to do according to all that they inform you:

X Deuteronomy

17:11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach you, and according to the judgment which they shall tell you, you shall do: you shall not decline from the sentence which they shall show you, to the right hand, nor to the left.

X Deuteronomy

17:12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not listen to the priest that stands to minister there before YHWH your Elohim, or to the judge, even that man shall die: and you shall remove the evil from Israel.

X Deuteronomy

17:13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.

X Deuteronomy

17:14 When you are come into the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you, and shall possess it, and shall dwell in it, and shall say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;

X Deuteronomy

17:15 You shall in any wise set him king over you whom YHWH your Elohim shall choose: one from among your brethren shall you set king over you: you may not set a stranger over you, who is not your brother.

X Deuteronomy

17:16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as YHWH has said to you*, you* shall from now on return no more that way.

X Deuteronomy

17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart may turn not away: neither shall he greatly accumulate to himself silver and gold.

X Deuteronomy

17:18 And it shall be when he sits upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites.

X Deuteronomy

17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear YHWH his Elohim, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

X Deuteronomy

17:20 That his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, and that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

18:1 The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of YHWH made by fire, and his inheritance.

X Deuteronomy

18:2 Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: YHWH is their inheritance, as he has said to them.

X Deuteronomy

18:3 And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether ox or sheep; and they shall give to the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.

X Deuteronomy

18:4 The first-fruit also of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep, shall you give him.

X Deuteronomy

18:5 For YHWH your Elohim has chosen him out of all your tribes, to stand to minister in the name of YHWH, him and his sons forever.

X Deuteronomy

18:6 And if a Levite shall come from any of your gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind to the place which YHWH shall choose;

X Deuteronomy

18:7 Then he shall minister in the name of YHWH his Elohim, as all his brethren the Levites do, who stand there before YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

18:8 They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which comes of the sale of his patrimony.

X Deuteronomy

18:9 When you are come into the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you, you shall not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

X Deuteronomy

18:10 There shall not be found among you* any one that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

X Deuteronomy

18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

X Deuteronomy

18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination to YHWH: and because of these abominations YHWH your Elohim does drive them out from before you.

X Deuteronomy

18:13 You shall be perfect with YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

18:14 For these nations, which you shall possess, listened to observers of times, and to diviners: but as for you, YHWH your Elohim has not suffered you so to do.

X Deuteronomy

18:15 YHWH your Elohim will raise up to you a Prophet from the midst of you, of your brethren, like to me; to him you* shall listen.

X Deuteronomy

18:16 According to all that you desired of YHWH your Elohim in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of YHWH my Elohim, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I may not die.

X Deuteronomy

18:17 And YHWH said to me, They have well spoken of that which they have spoken.

X Deuteronomy

18:18 I will raise up to them a prophet from among their brethren, like you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.

X Deuteronomy

18:19 And it shall come to pass, that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

X Deuteronomy

18:20 But the prophet, who shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other elohims, even that prophet shall die.

X Deuteronomy

18:21 And if you shall say in your heart, How shall we know the word which YHWH has not spoken?

X Deuteronomy

18:22 When a prophet speaks in the name of YHWH, if the thing does not follow, nor come to pass, that is the thing which YHWH has not spoken, but the prophet has spoken it presumptuously: you shall not be afraid of him.

X Deuteronomy

19:1 When YHWH your Elohim has cut off the nations, whose land YHWH your Elohim gives you, and you succeed them, and dwell in their cities, and in their houses;

X Deuteronomy

19:2 You shall separate three cities for you in the midst of your land which YHWH your Elohim gives you to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

19:3 You shall prepare you a way, and divide the limits of your land which YHWH your Elohim gives you to inherit, into three parts, that every slayer may flee toward that place.

X Deuteronomy

19:4 And this is the case of the slayer, who shall flee toward that place, that he may live: Whoever kills his neighbor ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past;

X Deuteronomy

19:5 As when a man goes into the wood with his neighbor to hew wood, and his hand makes a stroke with the ax to cut down the tree, and the head slips from the helve, and falls upon his neighbor, that he dies: he shall flee to one of these cities, and live:

X Deuteronomy

19:6 Lest the avenger of blood shall pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past.

X Deuteronomy

19:7 Therefore I command you, saying, You shall separate three cities for you.

X Deuteronomy

19:8 And if YHWH your Elohim shall enlarge your limits, as he has sworn to your fathers, and give you all the land which he promised to give to your fathers;

X Deuteronomy

19:9 If you shall keep all these commandments to do them, which I command you this day, to love YHWH your Elohim, and to walk ever in his ways; then shall you add three cities more for you, besides these three:

X Deuteronomy

19:10 That innocent blood may not be shed in your land, which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance, and so blood be upon you.

X Deuteronomy

19:11 But if any man shall hate his neighbor, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally, that he dies, and he shall flee into one of these cities:

X Deuteronomy

19:12 Then the elders of his city shall send and bring him that place, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

X Deuteronomy

19:13 Your eye shall not pity him, but you shall remove the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may be well with you.

X Deuteronomy

19:14 You shall not remove your neighbor's landmark, which they of old time have set in your inheritance, which you shall inherit in the land that YHWH your Elohim gives you to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sins; at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

X Deuteronomy

19:16 If a false witness shall rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

X Deuteronomy

19:17 Then both the men between whom the controversy is shall stand before YHWH, before the priests, and the judges, who shall be in those days;

X Deuteronomy

19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and behold, if the witness is a false witness, and has testified falsely against his brother;

X Deuteronomy

19:19 Then shall you* do to him, as he had thought to do to his brother: so shall you remove the evil from among you*.

X Deuteronomy

19:20 And those who remain shall hear, and fear, and shall from now on commit no more any such evil among you*.

X Deuteronomy

19:21 And your eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

X Deuteronomy

20:1 When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses, and chariots, and a people more than you, be not afraid of them: for YHWH your Elohim is with you, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.

X Deuteronomy

20:2 And it shall be when you* are come near to the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people,

X Deuteronomy

20:3 And shall say to them, Hear, O Israel, you* approach this day to battle against your* enemies: let not your* hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be you* terrified because of them;

X Deuteronomy

20:4 For YHWH your* Elohim is he that goes with you*, to fight for you* against your* enemies, to save you*.

X Deuteronomy

20:5 And the officers shall speak to the people, saying, What man is there that has built a new house, and has not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he should die in the battle, and another man should dedicate it.

X Deuteronomy

20:6 And what man is he that has planted a vineyard, and has not yet eaten of it? let him also go and return to his house, lest he should die in the battle, and another man should eat of it.

X Deuteronomy

20:7 And what man is there that has betrothed a wife, and has not taken her? let him go and return to his house, lest he should die in battle, and another man should take her.

X Deuteronomy

20:8 And the officers shall speak further to the people, and they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and faint-hearted? let him go and return to his house, lest his brethren's heart should faint as well as his heart.

X Deuteronomy

20:9 And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking to the people, that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people.

X Deuteronomy

20:10 When you come near to a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace to it.

X Deuteronomy

20:11 And it shall be, if it shall make you answer of peace, and open to you, then it shall be, that all the people that are found therein, shall be tributaries to you, and they shall serve you.

X Deuteronomy

20:12 And if it will make no peace with you, but will make war against you, then you shall besiege it:

X Deuteronomy

20:13 And when YHWH your Elohim has delivered it into your hands, you shall smite every male of it with the edge of the sword:

X Deuteronomy

20:14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil of it, shall you take to yourself: and you shall eat the spoil of your enemies, which YHWH your Elohim has given you.

X Deuteronomy

20:15 Thus shall you do to all the cities which are very distant from you, which are not of the cities of these nations.

X Deuteronomy

20:16 But of the cities of these people which YHWH your Elohim does give you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breaths:

X Deuteronomy

20:17 But you shall utterly destroy them, namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, as YHWH your Elohim has commanded you:

X Deuteronomy

20:18 That they may not teach you* to do after all their abominations which they have done to their elohims; so would you* sin against YHWH your* Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

20:19 When you shall besiege a city a long time in making war against it to take it, you shall not destroy the trees of it by forcing an ax against them; for you may eat of them: and you shall not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man's life) to employ them in the siege:

X Deuteronomy

20:20 Only the trees which you know that they are not trees for food, you shall destroy and cut them down; and you shall build bulwarks against the city that makes war with you, until it shall be subdued.

X Deuteronomy

21:1 If one shall be found slain in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you to possess it, lying in the field, and it be not known who has slain him:

X Deuteronomy

21:2 Then your elders and your judges shall come forth, and they shall measure to the cities which are around him that is slain:

X Deuteronomy

21:3 And it shall be that the city which is next to the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take a heifer which has not been worked with, and which has not drawn in the yoke;

X Deuteronomy

21:4 And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer to a rough valley, which is neither tilled nor sown, and shall strike off the heifer's neck there in the valley;

X Deuteronomy

21:5 And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near (for them YHWH your Elohim has chosen to minister to him, and to bless in the name of YHWH) and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried;

X Deuteronomy

21:6 And all the elders of that city that are next to the slain man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley:

X Deuteronomy

21:7 And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it.

X Deuteronomy

21:8 Be merciful, O YHWH, to your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, and lay not innocent blood to the charge of your people Israel. And the blood shall be forgiven them.

X Deuteronomy

21:9 So shall you remove the guilt of innocent blood from among you*, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

21:10 When you go forth to war against your enemies, and YHWH your Elohim has delivered them into your hands, and you have taken them captive,

X Deuteronomy

21:11 And you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and have a desire to her, that you would have her for your wife:

X Deuteronomy

21:12 Then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails:

X Deuteronomy

21:13 And she shall put off from her the raiment of her captivity, and shall remain in your house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that, you shall go in to her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.

X Deuteronomy

21:14 And it shall be, if you shall have no delight in her, then you shall let her go where she will; but you shall not sell her at all for money; you shall not make merchandise of her, because you have humbled her.

X Deuteronomy

21:15 If a man shall have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have borne him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the first-born son be hers that was hated:

X Deuteronomy

21:16 Then it shall be, when he makes his sons to inherit that which he has, that he may not prefer the son of the beloved first-born, before the son of the hated, which is indeed the first-born:

X Deuteronomy

21:17 But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated for the first-born, by giving him a double portion of all that he has: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the first-born is his.

X Deuteronomy

21:18 If a man shall have a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and who, when they have chastened him, will not listen to them:

X Deuteronomy

21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place;

X Deuteronomy

21:20 And they shall say to the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

X Deuteronomy

21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he may die: so shall you remove evil from among you*, and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

X Deuteronomy

21:22 And if a man shall have committed a sin worthy of death, and he must be put to death, and you shall hang him on a tree:

X Deuteronomy

21:23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but you shall in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of Elohim;) that your land may not be defiled, which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance.

X Deuteronomy

22:1 You shall not see your brother's ox or his sheep go astray, and hide yourself from them: you shall in any case bring them again to your brother.

X Deuteronomy

22:2 And if your brother shall not be near to you, or if you shall not know him, then you shall bring it to your own house, and it shall be with you until your brother shall seek after it, and you shall restore it to him again.

X Deuteronomy

22:3 In like manner shall you do with his donkey; and so shall you do with his raiment; and with all lost things of your brother's, which he has lost, and you have found, shall you do likewise: you may not hide yourself.

X Deuteronomy

22:4 You shall not see your brother's donkey or his ox fall down by the way, and hide yourself from them: you shall surely help him to lift them up again.

X Deuteronomy

22:5 A woman shall not wear that which pertains to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

22:6 If a bird's nest shall chance to be before you in the way on any tree, or on the ground, whether with young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, you shall not take the dam with the young:

X Deuteronomy

22:7 But you shall in any wise let the dam go, and take the young to you; that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days.

X Deuteronomy

22:8 When you build a new house, then you shall make a battlement for your roof, that you may not bring blood upon your house, if any man shall fall from that place.

X Deuteronomy

22:9 You shall not sow your vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of your seed which you have sown, and the fruit of your vineyard, should be defiled.

X Deuteronomy

22:10 You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.

X Deuteronomy

22:11 You shall not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woolen and linen together.

X Deuteronomy

22:12 You shall make you fringes upon the four quarters of your vesture, with which you coverest yourself.

X Deuteronomy

22:13 If any man shall take a wife, and go in to her, and hate her,

X Deuteronomy

22:14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:

X Deuteronomy

22:15 Then shall the father of the maiden, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the maiden's virginity to the elders of the city in the gate:

X Deuteronomy

22:16 And the maiden's father shall say to the elders, I gave my daughter to this man for a wife, and he hates her,

X Deuteronomy

22:17 And lo, he has given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not your daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.

X Deuteronomy

22:18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;

X Deuteronomy

22:19 And they shall amerce him in a hundred shekels of silver, and give them to the father of the maiden, because he has brought an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.

X Deuteronomy

22:20 But if this thing shall be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the maiden:

X Deuteronomy

22:21 Then they shall bring out the maiden to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she may die: because she has worked folly in Israel, to be guilty of fornication in her father's house: so shall you remove evil from among you*.

X Deuteronomy

22:22 If a man shall be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shall you remove evil from Israel.

X Deuteronomy

22:23 If a maiden that is a virgin shall be betrothed to a husband, and a man shall find her in the city, and lie with her;

X Deuteronomy

22:24 Then you* shall bring them both out to the gate of that city, and you* shall stone them with stones that they may die; the maiden, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he has humbled his neighbor's wife: so you shall remove evil from among you*.

X Deuteronomy

22:25 But if a man shall find a betrothed maiden in the field, and the man shall force her, and lie with her; then the man only that lay with her shall die:

X Deuteronomy

22:26 But to the maiden you shall do nothing; there is in the maiden no sin worthy of death: for as when a man rises against his neighbor, and slays him, even so is this matter:

X Deuteronomy

22:27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed maiden cried, and there was none to save her.

X Deuteronomy

22:28 If a man shall find a maiden that is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

X Deuteronomy

22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give to the maiden's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he has humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

X Deuteronomy

22:30 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor discover his father's skirt.

X Deuteronomy

23:1 He that is wounded or mutilated in his secrets, shall not enter into the congregation of YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of YHWH; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of YHWH; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of YHWH forever:

X Deuteronomy

23:4 Because they met you* not with bread and with water in the way, when you* came forth from Egypt; and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.

X Deuteronomy

23:5 Nevertheless, YHWH your Elohim would not listen to Balaam: but YHWH your Elohim turned the curse into a blessing to you, because YHWH your Elohim loved you.

X Deuteronomy

23:6 You shall not seek their peace, nor their prosperity all your days forever.

X Deuteronomy

23:7 You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother: you shall not abhor an Egyptian, because you were a stranger in his land.

X Deuteronomy

23:8 The children that are begotten by them shall enter into the congregation of YHWH in their third generation.

X Deuteronomy

23:9 When the host goes forth against your enemies, then keep you from every wicked thing.

X Deuteronomy

23:10 If there shall be among you* any man that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth to him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:

X Deuteronomy

23:11 But it shall be, when evening comes on, he shall wash himself with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the camp again.

X Deuteronomy

23:12 You shall have a place also without the camp, where you shall go forth abroad:

X Deuteronomy

23:13 And you shall have a paddle upon your weapon: and it shall be when you will ease yourself abroad, you shall dig with it, and shall turn back, and cover that which comes from you:

X Deuteronomy

23:14 For YHWH your Elohim walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you, and to give up your enemies before you; therefore shall your camp be holy: that he may see no unclean thing in you, and turn away from you.

X Deuteronomy

23:15 You shall not deliver to his master the servant who has escaped from his master to you:

X Deuteronomy

23:16 He shall dwell with you, even among you* in that place which he shall choose in one of your gates where it pleases him best: you shall not oppress him.

X Deuteronomy

23:17 There shall be no harlot of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

23:18 You shall not bring the hire of a harlot, or the price of a dog into the house of YHWH your Elohim for any vow: for even both these are abomination to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

23:19 You shall not lend upon interest to your brother; interest of money, interest of victuals, interest of any thing that is lent upon interest:

X Deuteronomy

23:20 To a stranger you may lend upon interest; but to your brother you shall not lend upon interest; that YHWH your Elohim may bless you in all that you set your hand to in the land where you go to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

23:21 When you shall vow a vow to YHWH your Elohim, you shall not defer to pay it: for YHWH your Elohim will surely require it of you; and it would be sin in you.

X Deuteronomy

23:22 But if you shall forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in you.

X Deuteronomy

23:23 That which is uttered by your lips you shall keep and perform; even a free-will-offering, according as you have vowed to YHWH your Elohim, which you have promised with your mouth.

X Deuteronomy

23:24 When you come into your neighbor's vineyard, then you may satisfy your appetite with grapes at your own pleasure; but you shall not put any in your vessel.

X Deuteronomy

23:25 When you come into the standing-grain of your neighbor, then you may pluck the ears with your hand: but you shall not move a sickle to your neighbor's standing-grain.

X Deuteronomy

24:1 When a man has taken a wife, and married her, and it shall come to pass that she finds no favor in his eyes, because he has found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

X Deuteronomy

24:2 And when she has departed from his house, she may go and be another man's wife.

X Deuteronomy

24:3 And if the latter husband shall hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house; or if the latter husband shall die, who took her to be his wife;

X Deuteronomy

24:4 Her former husband who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before YHWH: and you shall not cause the land to sin, which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance.

X Deuteronomy

24:5 When a man has newly taken a wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer his wife which he has taken.

X Deuteronomy

24:6 No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone for a pledge: for he takes a man's life for a pledge.

X Deuteronomy

24:7 If a man shall be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and shall make merchandise of him, or sell him; then that thief shall die; and you shall remove evil from among you*.

X Deuteronomy

24:8 Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that you observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you*: as I commanded them, so you* shall observe to do.

X Deuteronomy

24:9 Remember what YHWH your Elohim did to Miriam by the way, after that you* come forth from Egypt.

X Deuteronomy

24:10 When you do lend your brother any thing, you shall not go into his house to take his pledge:

X Deuteronomy

24:11 You shall stand abroad, and the man to whom you do lend shall bring out the pledge abroad to you:

X Deuteronomy

24:12 And if the man is poor, you shall not sleep with his pledge:

X Deuteronomy

24:13 In any case you shall deliver to him the pledge again when the sun goes down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless you; and it shall be righteousness to you before YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

24:14 You shall not oppress a hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he is of your brethren, or of your strangers that are in your land within your gates:

X Deuteronomy

24:15 At his day you shall give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it, for he is poor, and sets his heart upon it: lest he should cry against you to YHWH, and it be sin to you.

X Deuteronomy

24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

X Deuteronomy

24:17 You shall not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless, nor take a widow's raiment for a pledge:

X Deuteronomy

24:18 But you shall remember that you were a bond-man in Egypt, and YHWH your Elohim redeemed you that place: therefore I command you to do this thing.

X Deuteronomy

24:19 When you cuttest down your harvest in your field, and have forgot a sheaf in the field, you shall not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that YHWH your Elohim may bless you in all the work of your hands.

X Deuteronomy

24:20 When you beat your olive-tree, you shall not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

X Deuteronomy

24:21 When you gatherest the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

X Deuteronomy

24:22 And you shall remember that you were a bond-man in the land of Egypt: therefore I command you to do this thing.

X Deuteronomy

25:1 If there shall be a controversy between men, and they come to judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.

X Deuteronomy

25:2 And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.

X Deuteronomy

25:3 Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then your brother should seem vile to you.

X Deuteronomy

25:4 You shall not muzzle the ox when he treads out the grain.

X Deuteronomy

25:5 If brethren shall dwell together, and one of them shall die and have no child, the wife of the dead shall not marry without to a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in to her, and take her to him for a wife, and perform the duty of a husband's brother to her.

X Deuteronomy

25:6 And it shall be, that the first-born which she bears, shall succeed in the name of his brother who is dead, that his name may not become extinct in Israel.

X Deuteronomy

25:7 And if the man shall not like to take his brother's wife, then let his brother's wife go up to the gate to the elders, and say, My husband's brother refuses to raise up to his brother a name in Israel, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.

X Deuteronomy

25:8 Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak to him: and if he shall stand to it, and say, I like not to take her,

X Deuteronomy

25:9 Then shall his brother's wife come to him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done to that man that will not build up his brother's house.

X Deuteronomy

25:10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that has his shoe loosed.

X Deuteronomy

25:11 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draws near to deliver her husband from the hand of him that smiteth him, and puts forth her hand, and takes him by the secrets:

X Deuteronomy

25:12 Then you shall cut off her hand, your eye shall not pity her.

X Deuteronomy

25:13 You shall not have in your bag divers weights, a great and a small:

X Deuteronomy

25:14 You shall not have in your house divers measures, a great and a small:

X Deuteronomy

25:15 But you shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shall you have; that your days may be lengthened in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you.

X Deuteronomy

25:16 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

25:17 Remember what Amalek did to you by the way, when you* had come forth from Egypt;

X Deuteronomy

25:18 How he met you by the way, and smote the hindmost of you, even all that were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary; and he feared not Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

25:19 Therefore it shall be, when YHWH your Elohim has given you rest from all your enemies on all sides, in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance to possess it, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; you shall not forget it.

X Deuteronomy

26:1 And it shall be, when you have come in to the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you for an inheritance, and possessest it, and dwell therein;

X Deuteronomy

26:2 That you shall take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which you shall bring of your land that YHWH your Elohim gives you, and shall put it in a basket, and shall go to the place which YHWH your Elohim shall choose to place his name there.

X Deuteronomy

26:3 And you shall go to the priest that shall be in those days, and say to him, I profess this day to YHWH your Elohim, that I have come to the country which YHWH swore to our fathers to give us.

X Deuteronomy

26:4 And the priest shall take the basket from your hand, and set it down before the altar of YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

26:5 And you shall speak and say before YHWH your Elohim, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down to Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous:

X Deuteronomy

26:6 And the Egyptians ill-treated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage:

X Deuteronomy

26:7 And when we cried to YHWH Elohim of our fathers, YHWH heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labor, and our oppression:

X Deuteronomy

26:8 And YHWH brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an out-stretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders;

X Deuteronomy

26:9 And he has brought us into this place, and has given us this land, even a land that flows with milk and honey.

X Deuteronomy

26:10 And now, behold, I have brought the first-fruits of the land, which you, O YHWH, have given me: and you shall set it before YHWH your Elohim, and worship before YHWH your Elohim:

X Deuteronomy

26:11 And you shall rejoice in every good thing which YHWH your Elohim has given to you, and to your house, you, and the Levite, and the stranger that is among you*.

X Deuteronomy

26:12 When you have made an end of tithing all the tithes of your increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within your gates, and be filled:

X Deuteronomy

26:13 Then you shall say before YHWH your Elohim, I have brought away the hallowed things out of my house, and also have given them to the Levite, and to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all your commandments which you have commanded me: I have not transgressed your commandments, neither have I forgotten them:

X Deuteronomy

26:14 I have not eaten of it in my mourning, neither have I taken away aught of it for any unclean use, nor given aught of it for the dead: but I have listened to the voice of YHWH my Elohim, and have done according to all that you have commanded me.

X Deuteronomy

26:15 Look down from your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless your people Israel, and the land which you have given us, as you did swear to our fathers, a land that flows with milk and honey.

X Deuteronomy

26:16 This day YHWH your Elohim has commanded you to perform these statutes and judgments: you shall therefore keep and do them with all your heart, and with all your soul.

X Deuteronomy

26:17 You have avouched YHWH this day to be your Elohim, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to listen to his voice:

X Deuteronomy

26:18 And YHWH has avouched you this day to be his peculiar people, as he has promised you, and that you should keep all his commandments;

X Deuteronomy

26:19 And to make you high above all nations which he has made, in praise, and in name, and in honor; and that you may be a holy people to YHWH your Elohim, as he has spoken.

X Deuteronomy

27:1 And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you* this day.

X Deuteronomy

27:2 And it shall be on the day when you* shall pass over Jordan to the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you, that you shall set you up great stones, and plaster them with plaster:

X Deuteronomy

27:3 And you shall write upon them all the words of this law, when you have passed over, that you may enter in to the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you, a land that flows with milk and honey; as YHWH Elohim of your fathers has promised you.

X Deuteronomy

27:4 Therefore it shall be when you* have gone over Jordan, that you* shall set up these stones, which I command you* this day, in mount Ebal, and you shall plaster them with plaster.

X Deuteronomy

27:5 And there shall you build an altar to YHWH your Elohim, an altar of stones: you shall not lift up any iron tool upon them.

X Deuteronomy

27:6 You shall build the altar of YHWH your Elohim of whole stones: and you shall offer on it burnt-offerings to YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

27:7 And you shall offer peace-offerings, and shall eat there, and rejoice before YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

27:8 And you shall write upon the stones all the words of this law, very plainly.

X Deuteronomy

27:9 And Moses and the priests the Levites spoke to all Israel, saying, Take heed and listen, O Israel, this day you are become the people of YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

27:10 You shall therefore obey the voice of YHWH your Elohim, and do his commandments and his statutes which I command you this day.

X Deuteronomy

27:11 And Moses charged the people the same day, saying,

X Deuteronomy

27:12 These shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people, when you* have come over Jordan; Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin:

X Deuteronomy

27:13 And these shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse; Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.

X Deuteronomy

27:14 And the Levites shall speak, and say to all the men of Israel with a loud voice,

X Deuteronomy

27:15 Cursed be the man that makes any graven or molten image, an abomination to YHWH, the work of the hands of the artificer, and puts it in a secret place: and all the people shall answer, and say Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:16 Cursed be he that sets light by his father or his mother: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:17 Cursed be he that removes his neighbor's landmark: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:18 Cursed be he that makes the blind to wander out of the way: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:19 Cursed be he that perverts the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:20 Cursed be he that lies with his father's wife; because he uncovereth his father's skirt: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:21 Cursed be he that lies with any manner of beast: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:22 Cursed be he that lies with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:23 Cursed be he that lies with his mother-in-law: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:24 Cursed be he that smiteth his neighbor secretly: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:25 Cursed be he that takes reward to slay an innocent person: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

27:26 Cursed be he that confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them: and all the people shall say, Amen.

X Deuteronomy

28:1 And it shall come to pass, if you shall listen diligently to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command you this day; that YHWH your Elohim will set you on high above all nations of the earth:

X Deuteronomy

28:2 And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you shall listen to the voice of YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

28:3 Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field.

X Deuteronomy

28:4 Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your cattle, and the flocks of your sheep.

X Deuteronomy

28:5 Blessed shall be your basket and your store.

X Deuteronomy

28:6 Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

X Deuteronomy

28:7 YHWH shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways.

X Deuteronomy

28:8 YHWH shall command the blessing upon you in your store-houses, and in all that you set your hand to: and he shall bless you in the land which YHWH your Elohim gives you.

X Deuteronomy

28:9 YHWH shall establish you a holy people to himself, as he has sworn to you, if you shall keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, and walk in his ways.

X Deuteronomy

28:10 And all the people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of YHWH; and they shall be afraid of you.

X Deuteronomy

28:11 And YHWH shall make you to abound in goods, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which YHWH swore to your fathers to give you.

X Deuteronomy

28:12 YHWH shall open to you his good treasure, the heaven to give rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend to many nations, and you shall not borrow.

X Deuteronomy

28:13 And YHWH shall make you the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall not be beneath; if you shall listen to the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, which I command you this day, to observe and to do them:

X Deuteronomy

28:14 And you shall not go aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right hand or to the left, to go after other elohims to serve them.

X Deuteronomy

28:15 But it shall come to pass, if you will not listen to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command you this day; that all these curses shall come upon you, and overtake you:

X Deuteronomy

28:16 Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the field.

X Deuteronomy

28:17 Cursed shall be your basket and your store.

X Deuteronomy

28:18 Cursed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your land, the increase of your kine, and the flocks of your sheep.

X Deuteronomy

28:19 Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out.

X Deuteronomy

28:20 YHWH shall send upon you cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that you undertakest to perform, until you shall be destroyed, and until you shall perish quickly; because of the wickedness of your doings by which you have forsaken me.

X Deuteronomy

28:21 YHWH shall make the pestilence cleave to you, until he shall have consumed you from off the land, where you go to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

28:22 YHWH shall smite you with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew: and they shall pursue you until you do perish.

X Deuteronomy

28:23 And your heaven that is over your head shall be brass, and the earth that is under you shall be iron.

X Deuteronomy

28:24 YHWH shall make the rain of your land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon you, until you are destroyed.

X Deuteronomy

28:25 YHWH shall cause you to be smitten before your enemies: you shall go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them; and shall be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

X Deuteronomy

28:26 And your carcass shall be food to all fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the earth, and no man shall drive them away.

X Deuteronomy

28:27 YHWH will smite you with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, of which you can not be healed.

X Deuteronomy

28:28 YHWH shall smite you with the madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:

X Deuteronomy

28:29 And you shall grope at noon-day, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and you shall not prosper in your ways: and you shall be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save you.

X Deuteronomy

28:30 You shall betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: you shall build a house, and you shall not dwell in it: you shall plant a vineyard, and shall not gather the grapes of it.

X Deuteronomy

28:31 Your ox shall be slain before your eyes, and you shall not eat of it: your donkey shall be violently taken away from before your face, and shall not be restored to you: your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you shall have none to rescue them.

X Deuteronomy

28:32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in your hand.

X Deuteronomy

28:33 The fruit of your land, and all your labors, shall be eaten by a nation which you know not: and you shall be only oppressed and crushed always:

X Deuteronomy

28:34 So that you shall be mad for the sight of your eyes which you shall see.

X Deuteronomy

28:35 YHWH shall smite you in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.

X Deuteronomy

28:36 YHWH shall bring you, and your king which you shall set over you, to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known; and there shall you serve other elohims, wood and stone.

X Deuteronomy

28:37 And you shall become an astonishment, a proverb, and a by-word, among all nations where YHWH shall lead you.

X Deuteronomy

28:38 You shall carry much seed into the field, and shall gather but little: for the locust shall consume it.

X Deuteronomy

28:39 You shall plant vineyards and dress them, but shall neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes: for the worm shall eat them.

X Deuteronomy

28:40 You shall have olive-trees throughout all your coasts, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil: for your olive shall cast its fruit.

X Deuteronomy

28:41 You shall beget sons and daughters, but you shall not enjoy them: for they shall go into captivity.

X Deuteronomy

28:42 All your trees and fruit of your land shall the locust consume.

X Deuteronomy

28:43 The stranger that is within you shall rise above you very high; and you shall come down very low.

X Deuteronomy

28:44 He shall lend to you, and you shall not lend to him: he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

X Deuteronomy

28:45 Moreover, all these curses shall come upon you, and shall pursue you, and overtake you, till you are destroyed: because you hearkenedst not to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded you:

X Deuteronomy

28:46 And they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and upon your seed forever.

X Deuteronomy

28:47 Because you did not serve YHWH your Elohim with joyfulness and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things:

X Deuteronomy

28:48 Therefore shall you serve your enemies which YHWH shall send against you, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon your neck, until he has destroyed you.

X Deuteronomy

28:49 YHWH shall bring a nation against you from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you shall not understand:

X Deuteronomy

28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favor to the young:

X Deuteronomy

28:51 And he shall eat the fruit of your cattle, and the fruit of your land, until you are destroyed: which also shall not leave you either grain, wine, or oil, or the increase of your cattle, or flocks of your sheep, until he has destroyed you.

X Deuteronomy

28:52 And he shall besiege you in all your gates, until your high and fortified walls come down, in which you did trust, throughout all your land; and he shall besiege you in all your gates throughout all your land which YHWH your Elohim has given you.

X Deuteronomy

28:53 And you shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters which YHWH your Elohim has given you, in the siege and in the straitness with which your enemies shall distress you:

X Deuteronomy

28:54 So that the man that is tender among you*, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil towards his brother, and towards the wife of his bosom, and towards the remnant of his children whom he shall leave:

X Deuteronomy

28:55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he has nothing left him in the siege and in the straitness with which your enemies shall distress you in all your gates.

X Deuteronomy

28:56 The tender and delicate woman among you*, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil towards the husband of her bosom, and towards her son, and towards her daughter,

X Deuteronomy

28:57 And towards her young one, her own offspring, and towards her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness with which your enemy shall distress you in your gates.

X Deuteronomy

28:58 If you will not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and fearful name, THE YHWH THY ELOHIM;

X Deuteronomy

28:59 Then YHWH will make your plagues wonderful, and the plagues of your seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and severe sicknesses, and of long continuance.

X Deuteronomy

28:60 Moreover, he will bring upon you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid; and they shall cleave to you.

X Deuteronomy

28:61 Also every sickness, and every plague which is not written in the book of this law, them will YHWH bring upon you, until you are destroyed.

X Deuteronomy

28:62 And you* shall be left few in number, whereas you* were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because you would not obey the voice of YHWH your Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

28:63 And it shall come to pass, that as YHWH rejoiced over you* to do you* good, and to multiply you*; so YHWH will rejoice over you* to destroy you*, and to bring you* to naught; and you* shall be plucked from off the land where you go to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

28:64 And YHWH shall scatter you among all people from the one end of the earth even to the other; and there you shall serve other elohims, which neither you nor your fathers have known, even wood and stone.

X Deuteronomy

28:65 And among these nations shall you find no ease, neither shall the sole of your foot have rest: but YHWH shall give you there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

X Deuteronomy

28:66 And your life shall hang in doubt before you; and you shall fear day and night, and shall have no assurance of your life:

X Deuteronomy

28:67 In the morning you shall say, O that it were evening, and at evening you shall say, O that it were morning! for the fear of your heart with which you shall fear, and for the sight of your eyes which you shall see.

X Deuteronomy

28:68 And YHWH shall bring you into Egypt again with ships, by the way of which I have said to you, You shall see it no more again: and there you* shall be sold to your* enemies for bond-men and bond-women, and no man shall buy you*.

X Deuteronomy

29:1 These are the words of the covenant which YHWH commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.

X Deuteronomy

29:2 And Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, You* have seen all that YHWH did before your* eyes in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land;

X Deuteronomy

29:3 The great temptations which your eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:

X Deuteronomy

29:4 Yet YHWH has not given you* a heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, to this day.

X Deuteronomy

29:5 And I have led you* forty years in the wilderness: your* clothes have not become old upon you*, and your shoe has not become old upon your foot.

X Deuteronomy

29:6 You* have not eaten bread, neither have you* drank wine or strong drink: that you* might know that I am YHWH your* Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

29:7 And when you* came to this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us to battle, and we smote them:

X Deuteronomy

29:8 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half-tribe of Manasseh.

X Deuteronomy

29:9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that you* may prosper in all that you* do.

X Deuteronomy

29:10 You* stand this day all of you* before YHWH your* Elohim; your* captains of your* tribes, your* elders, and your* officers, with all the men of Israel,

X Deuteronomy

29:11 Your* little ones, your* wives, and your stranger that is in your camp, from the hewer of your wood to the drawer of your water:

X Deuteronomy

29:12 That you should enter into covenant with YHWH your Elohim, and into his oath, which YHWH your Elohim makes with you this day:

X Deuteronomy

29:13 That he may establish you to-day for a people to himself, and that he may be to you a Elohim, as he has said to you, and as he has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

X Deuteronomy

29:14 Neither with you* only do I make this covenant and this oath;

X Deuteronomy

29:15 But with him that stands here with us this day before YHWH our Elohim, and also with him that is not here with us this day:

X Deuteronomy

29:16 (For you* know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which you* passed by;

X Deuteronomy

29:17 And you* have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)

X Deuteronomy

29:18 Lest there should be among you* man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turns away this day from YHWH our Elohim, to go and serve the elohims of these nations; lest there should be among you* a root that bears gall and wormwood;

X Deuteronomy

29:19 And it should come to pass, when he hears the words of this curse, that he should bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of my heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:

X Deuteronomy

29:20 YHWH will not spare him, but then the anger of YHWH and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and YHWH shall blot out his name from under heaven.

X Deuteronomy

29:21 And YHWH shall separate him to evil out of all the tribes of Israel according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:

X Deuteronomy

29:22 So that the generation to come of your* children that shall arise after you*, and the stranger that shall come from a distant land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which YHWH has laid upon it;

X Deuteronomy

29:23 And that the whole land of it is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor does it bear, nor does any grass grow in it, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which YHWH overthrew in his anger and in his wrath:

X Deuteronomy

29:24 Even all the nations shall say, Why has YHWH done thus to this land? what means the heat of this great anger?

X Deuteronomy

29:25 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of YHWH Elohim of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth from the land of Egypt:

X Deuteronomy

29:26 For they went and served other elohims, and worshiped them, elohims which they knew not, and which he had not given to them:

X Deuteronomy

29:27 And the anger of YHWH was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:

X Deuteronomy

29:28 And YHWH rooted them out of their land in anger and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.

X Deuteronomy

29:29 The secret things belong to YHWH our Elohim: but those things which are revealed belong to us, and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

X Deuteronomy

30:1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations where YHWH your Elohim has driven you,

X Deuteronomy

30:2 And shall return to YHWH your Elohim, and shall obey his voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul;

X Deuteronomy

30:3 That then YHWH your Elohim will turn your captivity, and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the nations where YHWH your Elohim has scattered you.

X Deuteronomy

30:4 If any of yours shall be driven out to the outmost parts of heaven, from that place will YHWH your Elohim gather you, and from that place will he bring you:

X Deuteronomy

30:5 And YHWH your Elohim will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it: and he will do you good, and multiply you above your fathers.

X Deuteronomy

30:6 And YHWH your Elohim will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live.

X Deuteronomy

30:7 And YHWH your Elohim will put all these curses upon your enemies, and on them that hate you, who persecuted you.

X Deuteronomy

30:8 And you shall return and obey the voice of YHWH, and do all his commandments which I command you this day.

X Deuteronomy

30:9 And YHWH your Elohim will make you to abound in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your land, for good: for YHWH will again rejoice over you for good, as he rejoiced over your fathers:

X Deuteronomy

30:10 If you shall listen to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if you shall turn to YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul.

X Deuteronomy

30:11 For this commandment which I command you this day, it is not hid from you, neither is it far off.

X Deuteronomy

30:12 It is not in heaven, that you should say, Who shall ascend for us to heaven, and bring it to us, that we may hear it, and do it?

X Deuteronomy

30:13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, that we may hear it, and do it?

X Deuteronomy

30:14 But the word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you may do it.

X Deuteronomy

30:15 See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil;

X Deuteronomy

30:16 In that I command you this day to love YHWH your Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, that you may live and multiply: and YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in the land where you go to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

30:17 But if your heart shall turn away, so that you will not hear, but shall be drawn away, and worship other elohims, and serve them;

X Deuteronomy

30:18 I denounce to you* this day, that you* shall surely perish, and that you* shall not prolong your* days upon the land, where you passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you*, that I have set before you* life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live:

X Deuteronomy

30:20 That you may love YHWH your Elohim, and that you may obey his voice, and that you may cleave to him (for he is your life, and the length of your days) that you may dwell in the land which YHWH swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

X Deuteronomy

31:1 And Moses went and spoke these words to all Israel.

X Deuteronomy

31:2 And he said to them, I am a hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: also YHWH has said to me, you shall not go over this Jordan.

X Deuteronomy

31:3 YHWH your Elohim, he will go over before you, and he will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall possess them: and Joshua he shall go over before you, as YHWH has said.

X Deuteronomy

31:4 And YHWH shall do to them as he did to Sihon, and to Og, kings of the Amorites, and to the land of them, whom he destroyed.

X Deuteronomy

31:5 And YHWH shall give them up before your* face, that you* may do to them according to all the commandments which I have commanded you*.

X Deuteronomy

31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for YHWH your Elohim, he it is that does go with you, he will not fail you, nor forsake you.

X Deuteronomy

31:7 And Moses called to Joshua, and said to him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for you must go with this people to the land which YHWH has sworn to their fathers to give them; and you shall cause them to inherit it.

X Deuteronomy

31:8 And YHWH, he it is that does go before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed.

X Deuteronomy

31:9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it to the priests the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of the covenant of YHWH, and to all the elders of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

31:10 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,

X Deuteronomy

31:11 When all Israel is come to appear before YHWH your Elohim in the place which he shall choose, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing.

X Deuteronomy

31:12 Convene the people, men, and women, and children, and your stranger that is within your gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear YHWH your* Elohim, and observe to do all the words of this law:

X Deuteronomy

31:13 And that their children who have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear YHWH your* Elohim, as long as you* live in the land where you* go over Jordan to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

31:14 And YHWH said to Moses, Behold, your days approach that you must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves* in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation.

X Deuteronomy

31:15 And YHWH appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud; and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.

X Deuteronomy

31:16 And YHWH said to Moses, Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers, and this people will rise up, and commit idolatry with the elohims of the strangers of the land, where they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.

X Deuteronomy

31:17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them, so that they will say in that day, Have not these evils come upon us, because our Elohim is not among us?

X Deuteronomy

31:18 And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have worked, in that they are turned to other elohims.

X Deuteronomy

31:19 Now therefore write you* this song for you*, and teach it to the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

31:20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I swore to their fathers, that flows with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxed fat; then will they turn to other elohims, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.

X Deuteronomy

31:21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles have befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness: for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they form, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I swore.

X Deuteronomy

31:22 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it to the children of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

31:23 And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land which I swore to them: and I will be with you.

X Deuteronomy

31:24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,

X Deuteronomy

31:25 That Moses commanded the Levites who bore the ark of the covenant of YHWH, saying,

X Deuteronomy

31:26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of YHWH your* Elohim, that it may be there for a witness against you.

X Deuteronomy

31:27 For I know your rebellion, and your stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you* this day, you* have been rebellious against YHWH; and how much more after my death?

X Deuteronomy

31:28 Assemble to me all the elders of your* tribes, and your* officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.

X Deuteronomy

31:29 For I know that after my death you* will utterly corrupt yourselves*, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you*; and evil will befall you* in the latter days; because you* will do evil in the sight of YHWH, to provoke him to anger through the work of your* hands.

X Deuteronomy

31:30 And Moses spoke in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song until they were ended.

X Deuteronomy

32:1 Give ear, O you* heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.

X Deuteronomy

32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distill as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

X Deuteronomy

32:3 Because I will publish the name of YHWH: ascribe you* greatness to our Elohim.

X Deuteronomy

32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a Elohim of truth and without iniquity: just and right is he.

X Deuteronomy

32:5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.

X Deuteronomy

32:6 Do you* thus requite YHWH, O foolish people and unwise? is not he your father that has bought you? has he not made you, and established you?

X Deuteronomy

32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you.

X Deuteronomy

32:8 When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

32:9 For YHWH'S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

X Deuteronomy

32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.

X Deuteronomy

32:11 As an eagle stirs up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, bears them on her wings;

X Deuteronomy

32:12 So YHWH alone did lead him, and there was no strange Elohim with him.

X Deuteronomy

32:13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;

X Deuteronomy

32:14 Butter of cows, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and you did drink the pure blood of the grape.

X Deuteronomy

32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: you have waxed fat, you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness; then he forsook Elohim who made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

X Deuteronomy

32:16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange elohims, with abominations they provoked him to anger.

X Deuteronomy

32:17 They sacrificed to devils, not to Elohim; to elohims which they knew not, to new elohims that came newly up, whom your* fathers feared not.

X Deuteronomy

32:18 Of the Rock that begat you you are unmindful, and have forgotten Elohim that formed you.

X Deuteronomy

32:19 And when YHWH saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

X Deuteronomy

32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end will be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.

X Deuteronomy

32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not Elohim; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those who are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

X Deuteronomy

32:22 For a fire is kindled in my anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

X Deuteronomy

32:23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend my arrows upon them.

X Deuteronomy

32:24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

X Deuteronomy

32:25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.

X Deuteronomy

32:26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men;

X Deuteronomy

32:27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and YHWH has not done all this.

X Deuteronomy

32:28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.

X Deuteronomy

32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

X Deuteronomy

32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and YHWH had shut them up?

X Deuteronomy

32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges:

X Deuteronomy

32:32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

X Deuteronomy

32:33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.

X Deuteronomy

32:34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?

X Deuteronomy

32:35 To me belongs vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make hurry.

X Deuteronomy

32:36 For YHWH shall judge his people, and repent for his servants: when he sees that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.

X Deuteronomy

32:37 And he shall say, Where are their elohims, their rock in whom they trusted,

X Deuteronomy

32:38 Which ate the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink-offerings? let them rise up and help you*, and be your* protection.

X Deuteronomy

32:39 See now that I, even I am he, and there is no elohim with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

X Deuteronomy

32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live forever.

X Deuteronomy

32:41 If I shall whet my glittering sword, and my hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to my enemies, and will reward them that hate me.

X Deuteronomy

32:42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.

X Deuteronomy

32:43 Rejoice, O you* nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful to his land, and to his people.

X Deuteronomy

32:44 And Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he and Hoshea the son of Nun.

X Deuteronomy

32:45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel;

X Deuteronomy

32:46 And he said to them, Set your* hearts to all the words which I testify among you* this day, which you* shall command your* children to observe to do, all the words of this law.

X Deuteronomy

32:47 For it is not a vain thing for you*: because it is your* life; and through this thing you* shall prolong your* days in the land where you* go over Jordan to possess it.

X Deuteronomy

32:48 And YHWH spoke to Moses that same day, saying,

X Deuteronomy

32:49 Ascend this mountain Abarim, to mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan which I give to the children of Israel for a Possession:

X Deuteronomy

32:50 And die in the mount where you go, and be gathered to your people; as Aaron your brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered to his people:

X Deuteronomy

32:51 Because you* trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because you* sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

32:52 Yet you shall see the land before you, but you shall not go toward that place to the land which I give the children of Israel.

X Deuteronomy

33:1 And this is the with which Moses, the man of Elohim, blessed the children of Israel before his death.

X Deuteronomy

33:2 And he said, YHWH came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir to them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.

X Deuteronomy

33:3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in your hand: and they sat down at your feet; every one shall receive of your words.

X Deuteronomy

33:4 Moses commanded us a law; even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.

X Deuteronomy

33:5 And he was king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were assembled.

X Deuteronomy

33:6 Let Reuben live, and not die; and let not his men be few.

X Deuteronomy

33:7 And this is the blessing of Judah: and he said, Hear, YHWH, the voice of Judah, and bring him to his people: let his hands be sufficient for him, and be you a help to him from his enemies.

X Deuteronomy

33:8 And of Levi he said, Let your Thummim and your Urim be with your holy one, whom you did prove at Massah, and with whom you did strive at the waters of Meribah;

X Deuteronomy

33:9 Who said to his father and to his mother, I have not seen him, neither did he acknowledge his brethren, nor know his own children: for they have observed your word, and kept your covenant.

X Deuteronomy

33:10 They shall teach Jacob your judgments, and Israel your law; they shall put incense before you, and whole burnt sacrifice upon your altar.

X Deuteronomy

33:11 Bless, YHWH, his substance, and accept the work of his hands: smite through the loins of them that rise against him, and of them that hate him, that they rise not again.

X Deuteronomy

33:12 And of Benjamin he said, The beloved of YHWH shall dwell in safety by him; and YHWH shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between his shoulders.

X Deuteronomy

33:13 And of Joseph he said, Blessed of YHWH be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath,

X Deuteronomy

33:14 And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,

X Deuteronomy

33:15 And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills,

X Deuteronomy

33:16 And for the precious things of the earth and fullness of it, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush; let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.

X Deuteronomy

33:17 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.

X Deuteronomy

33:18 And of Zebulun he said, Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out; and Issachar, in your tents.

X Deuteronomy

33:19 They shall call the people to the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.

X Deuteronomy

33:20 And of Gad he said: Blessed be he that enlarges Gad: he dwells as a lion, and tears the arm with the crown of the head.

X Deuteronomy

33:21 And he provided the first part for himself, because there, in a portion of the lawgiver, was he seated: and he came with the heads of the people, he executed the justice of YHWH, and his judgments with Israel.

X Deuteronomy

33:22 And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.

X Deuteronomy

33:23 And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with favor, and full with the blessing of YHWH: possess you the west and the south.

X Deuteronomy

33:24 And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his foot in oil.

X Deuteronomy

33:25 Your shoes shall be iron and brass; and as your days, so shall your strength be.

X Deuteronomy

33:26 There is none like to the Elohim of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in your help, and in his excellence on the sky.

X Deuteronomy

33:27 The eternal Elohim is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before you, and shall say, Destroy them.

X Deuteronomy

33:28 Israel then shall dwell in safety alone; the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of grain and wine, also his heavens shall drop down dew.

X Deuteronomy

33:29 Happy are you, O Israel: who is like to you, O people saved by YHWH, the shield of your help, and who is the sword of your excellence! and your enemies shall be found liars to you; and you shall tread upon their high places.

X Deuteronomy

34:1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab, upon the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho: and YHWH showed him all the land of Gilead, to Dan,

X Deuteronomy

34:2 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, to the utmost sea,

X Deuteronomy

34:3 And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm-trees, to Zoar.

X Deuteronomy

34:4 And YHWH said to him, This is the land which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, I will give it to your seed: I have caused you to see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over toward that place.

X Deuteronomy

34:5 So Moses the servant of YHWH died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of YHWH.

X Deuteronomy

34:6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Beth-peor: but no man knows of his sepulcher to this day.

X Deuteronomy

34:7 And Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

X Deuteronomy

34:8 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.

X Deuteronomy

34:9 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel listened to him, and did as YHWH commanded Moses.

X Deuteronomy

34:10 And there arose not a prophet afterwards in Israel like to Moses, whom YHWH knew face to face,

X Deuteronomy

34:11 In all the signs and the wonders which YHWH sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,

X Deuteronomy

34:12 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses showed in the sight of all Israel.
