1:1 These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side
Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red sea,
between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab.
2(There are eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir
3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on
the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of
Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment
4 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in
Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei:
5 On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare
this law, saying,
6 The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long
enough in this mount:
7 Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the
Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the
hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the
land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the
8 Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land
which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to
give unto them and to their seed after them.
9 And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you
10 The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are this day
as the stars of heaven for multitude.
11(The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more
as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you!)
12 How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and
13 Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes,
and I will make them rulers over you.
14 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is
good for us to do.
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.
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.
17 Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the
small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man;
for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you,
bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
18 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.
19 And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and
terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the
Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to
20 And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites,
which the LORD our God doth give unto us.
21 Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and
possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear
not, neither be discouraged.
22 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send
men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us
word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall
23 And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one
of a tribe:
24 And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto the
valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.
25 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought
it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a good
land which the LORD our God doth give us.
26 Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the
commandment of the LORD your God:
27 And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us,
he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into
the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.
28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart,
saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great
and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the
29 Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.
30 The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you,
according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;
31 And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy
God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye
went, until ye came into this place.
32 Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,
33 Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch
your tents in, in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go,
and in a cloud by day.
34 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and
35 Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see
that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers,
36 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I
give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because
he hath wholly followed the LORD.
37 Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also
shalt not go in thither.
38 But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go
in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
39 Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your
children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil,
they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall
40 But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness
by the way of the Red sea.
41 Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD,
we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God
commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war,
ye were ready to go up into the hill.
42 And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight;
for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies.
43 So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against
the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.
44 And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against
you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even unto
45 And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not
hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.

2:1 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the
way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed mount
Seir many days.
2 And the LORD spake unto me, saying,
3 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.
4 And command thou the people, saying, Ye are to pass through the
coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; and
they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves
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 unto Esau
for a possession.
6 Ye shall buy meat of them for money, that ye may eat; and ye shall
also buy water of them for money, that ye may drink.
7 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand:
he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty
years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.
8 And when we passed by from our brethren the children of Esau, which
dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from Elath, and from
Ezion-gaber, we turned and passed by the way of the wilderness of
9 And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither
contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land
for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for
10 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many,
and tall, as the Anakims;
11 Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites
call them Emims.
12 The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau
succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and
dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of his possession,
which the LORD gave unto them.
13 Now rise up, said I, and get you over the brook Zered. And we went
over the brook Zered.
14 And the space in which we came from Kadesh-barnea, until we were
come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all the
generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as
the LORD sware unto them.
15 For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them
from among the host, until they were consumed.
16 So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and dead
from among the people,
17 That the LORD spake unto me, saying,
18 Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:
19 And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon,
distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of
the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given
it unto the children of Lot for a possession.
20(That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in
old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
21 A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD
destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in
22 As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when he
destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded them, and
dwelt in their stead even unto this day:
23 And the Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, even unto Azzah, the
Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed them, and dwelt
in their stead.)
24 Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon:
behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of
Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in
25 This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee
upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear
report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee.
26 And I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto Sihon
king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,
27 Let me pass through thy land: I will go along by the high way, I
will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left.
28 Thou shalt sell me meat for money, that I may eat; and give me
water for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through on my
29(As the children of Esau which dwell in Seir, and the Moabites which
dwell in Ar, did unto me;) until I shall pass over Jordan into the
land which the LORD our God giveth us.
30 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the
LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that
he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.
31 And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and
his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest inherit his
32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at

his sons, and all his people.

men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none
35 Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, and the spoil of
the cities which we took.
36 From Aroer, which is by the brink of the river of Arnon, and from
the city that is by the river, even unto Gilead, there was not one
city too strong for us: the LORD our God delivered all unto us:

unto any place of the river Jabbok, nor unto the cities in the
mountains, nor unto whatsoever the LORD our God forbad us.

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.
2 And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and
all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto
him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at
3 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of
Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to
4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which
we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the
kingdom of Og in Bashan.
5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars;
beside unwalled towns a great many.
6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon,
utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.
7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey
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 Jordan, from the river of
Arnon unto mount Hermon;
9(Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it
10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto
Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
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 thereof, and four
cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
12 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which
is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof,
gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.
13 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og,
gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with
all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.
14 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the
coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name,
Bashan-havoth-jair, unto this day.
15 And I gave Gilead unto Machir.
16 And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from Gilead
even unto the river Arnon half the valley, and the border even unto
the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;
17 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof, from Chinnereth
even unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, under
18 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LORD your God hath
given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before
your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.
19 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know
that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have
20 Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto
you, and until they also possess the land which the LORD your God hath
given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man unto his
possession, which I have given you.
21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen
all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall
the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.
22 Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for
23 And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,

thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can
do according to thy works, and according to thy might?
25 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond
Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.
26 But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear
me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto
me of this matter.
27 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes
westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it
with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit
the land which thou shalt see.

4:1 Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the
judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go
in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you.
2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye
diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD
your God which I command you.
3 Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baal-peor: for all
the men that followed Baal-peor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them
from among you.
4 But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every one of
you this day.
5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD
my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to
6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your
understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these
statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and
7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them,
as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments
so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou
forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart
from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and
thy sons' sons;
10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in
Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and
I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the
days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach
11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain
burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and
12 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard
the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.
13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to
perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of
14 And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and
judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to
15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner
of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of
the midst of the fire:
16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the
similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any
winged fowl that flieth in the air,
18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness
of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest
the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven,
shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD
thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
20 But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron
furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as
ye are this day.
21 Furthermore the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, and sware
that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto
that good land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance:
22 But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye
shall go over, and possess that good land.
23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD
your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the
likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.
24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
25 When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye
shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves,
and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do
evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger:
26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye
shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over
Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but
shall utterly be destroyed.
27 And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be
left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you.
28 And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and
stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt
find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon
thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and
shalt be obedient unto his voice;
31(For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee,
neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he
sware unto them.
32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee,
since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the
one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such
thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?
33 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of
the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?
34 Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of
another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war,
and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great
terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt
before your eyes?
35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he
is God; there is none else beside him.
36 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might
instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou
heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.
37 And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed
after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power
out of Egypt;
38 To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than
thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an
inheritance, as it is this day.
39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the
LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is
40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which
I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy
children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the
earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.
41 Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward the
42 That the slayer might flee thither, which should kill his neighbour
unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing unto one
of these cities he might live:
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.
44 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel:
45 These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments,
which Moses spake unto the children of Israel, after they came forth
out of Egypt,
46 On this side 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 were come forth out of

kings of the Amorites, which were on this side Jordan toward the

2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.
3 The LORD made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even
us, who are all of us here alive this day.
4 The LORD talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst
of the fire,
5(I stood between the LORD and you at that time, to shew you the work
of the LORD: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up
into the mount;) saying,
6 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt,
from the house of bondage.
7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any
thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the waters beneath the earth:
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the
LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that
10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my
11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the
LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath
13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou
shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any
of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy
manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and
that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand
and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee
to keep the sabbath day.
16 Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath
commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go
well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
17 Thou shalt not kill.
18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery.
19 Neither shalt thou steal.
20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour.
21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou
covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his
maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.
22 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out
of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness,
with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two
tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.
23 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of
the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near
unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;
24 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and
his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the
fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.

26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the
living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and
27 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say: and
speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee;
and we will hear it, and do it.
28 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me;
and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this
people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that
they have spoken.
29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me,
and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them,
and with their children for ever!
30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.
31 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee
all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou
shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them
to possess it.
32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath
commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the
33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath
commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and

in the land whither ye go to possess it:
2 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes
and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy
son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be

with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy
fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and
4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with
all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt
talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest
by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall
be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy
10 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into
the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to
Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and
wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees,
which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;
12 Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out
of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by
14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which
are round about you;
15(For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of
the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off
the face of the earth.
16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and
his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the
LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and
possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers,
19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath
20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the
testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our
God hath commanded you?
21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in
Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
22 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt,
upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to
give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the
LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as
it is at this day.
25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these
commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.
