The Fifth Book of Moses, called Deuteronomy

Chapter 29

1

These [are] the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded14 Moses to make2 with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made1 with them in Horeb.

2

And Moses called4 unto all Israel, and said4 unto them, Ye have seen1 all that the LORD did1 before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;

3

The great temptations which thine eyes have seen,1 the signs, and those great miracles:

4

Yet the LORD hath not given1 you an heart to perceive,2 and eyes to see,2 and ears to hear,2 unto this day.

5

And I have led55 you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old1 upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old1 upon thy foot.

6

Ye have not eaten1 bread, neither have ye drunk1 wine or strong drink: that ye might know4 that I [am] the LORD your God.

7

And when ye came4 unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out4 against2 us unto battle, and we smote55 them:

8

And we took4 their land, and gave4 it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.

9

Keep1 therefore the words of this covenant, and do1 them, that ye may prosper55 in all that ye do.4

10

Ye stand12 this day all of you before the LORD your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers,6 [with] all the men of Israel,

11

Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that [is] in thy camp, from the hewer6 of thy wood unto the drawer6 of thy water:

12

That thou shouldest enter2 into covenant with the LORD thy God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh6 with thee this day:

13

That he may establish53 thee to day for a people unto himself, and [that] he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said14 unto thee, and as he hath sworn8 unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

14

Neither with you only do I make6 this covenant and this oath;

15

But with [him] that standeth6 here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with [him] that [is] not here with us this day:

16

(For ye know1 how we have dwelt1 in the land of Egypt; and how we came1 through the nations which ye passed by;1

17

And ye have seen4 their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which [were] among them:)

18

Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away6 this day from the LORD our God, to go2 [and] serve2 the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth6 gall and wormwood;

19

And it come to pass, when he heareth2 the words of this curse, that he bless98 himself in his heart, saying,2 I shall have peace, though I walk4 in the imagination of mine heart, to add2 drunkenness to thirst:

20

The LORD will4 not spare2 him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke4 against that man, and all the curses that are written7 in this book shall lie1 upon him, and the LORD shall blot out1 his name from under heaven.

21

And the LORD shall separate52 him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written7 in this book of the law:

22

So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up4 after you, and the stranger that shall come4 from a far land, shall say,1 when they see1 the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid14 upon it;

23

[And that] the whole land thereof [is] brimstone, and salt, [and] burning, [that] it is not sown,11 nor beareth,55 nor any grass groweth4 therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew1 in his anger, and in his wrath:

24

Even all nations shall say,1 Wherefore hath the LORD done1 thus unto this land? what [meaneth] the heat of this great anger?

25

Then men shall say,1 Because they have forsaken1 the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made1 with them when he brought them forth53 out of the land of Egypt:

26

For they went4 and served4 other gods, and worshipped101 them, gods whom they knew1 not, and [whom] he had not given1 unto them:

27

And the anger of the LORD was kindled4 against this land, to bring53 upon it all the curses that are written7 in this book:

28

And the LORD rooted them out4 of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast55 them into another land, as [it is] this day.

29

The secret12 [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but those [things which are] revealed12 [belong] unto us and to our children for ever, that [we] may do2 all the words of this law.
