Lord overthrew in his anger and in his
wrath :

24 Even all nations shall say, 'Wherefore
hath the Lord done thus unto this land ?
what meaneth the heat of this great anger ?

Mercies promised to the penitent.

25 Then men shall say. Because they have
forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of
their fathers, which he made with them
when he brought them forth out of the land
of Egypt :

26 For they went and served other gods,
and worshipped them, gods whom they knew
not, and || whomhQ had not t given unto them:

27 And the anger of the Lord was kind-
led against this land, ffto bring upon it all
the curses that are written in this book :

28 And the Lord ^ rooted them out of
their land in anger and in wrath, and in
great indignation, and cast them into another
land, as it is this day.

29 The secret things belong unto the Lord
our God : but those things which are re-
vealed belong unto us, and to our children
for ever, that we may do all the words of
this law.

CHAP. XXX.

1 Great mercies promised unto the repentant. 11 The
comma7idment is manifest. 15 Death and life are
set before them.

AND =^it shall come to pass, when •'all
these things are come upon thee, the
blessing and the curse, which I have Set
before thee, and "thou shalt call them to
mind among all the nations whither the
Lord thy God hath driven thee,

2 And- shalt ''return unto the Lord thy
God, and shalt obey his voice according to
all that I command thee this day, thou and
thy children, with all thine heart, and with all
thy soul ;

3 «That then the Lo«.d thy God will
turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon
thee, and will return and '"gather thee from
all the nations whither the Lord thy God
hath scattered thee.

4 s If any of thine be driven out unto the
outmost parts of heaven, from thence will
the Lord thy God gather thee, and from
thence will he fetch thee :

5 And the Lord thy God will bring
thee into the land which thy fathers pos-
sessed, and thou shalt possess it : and he will
do thee good, and multiply thee above thy
fathers.

6 And ""the Lord thy God will circum-
cise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed,
to love the Lord thy God with all thine
heart, and with all thy soul, that thou may-
est live.

7 And the Lord thy God will put all
these curses upon thine enemies, and on
them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.

8 And thou shalt return and obey the
voice of the Lord, and do all his command-
ments which I command thee this day.

9 'And the Lord thy God will make
thee plenteous in every work of thine hand,
in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit
of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land,
for good : for the Lord will again ''rejoice
over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy
fathers :

10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice
of the Lord thy God, to keep his com-
mandments and his statutes which are writ-
ten in this book of the law, and if thou
turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine
heart and with all thy soul.

11 TT For this commandment which I com-
mand thee this day, 4t is not hidden from
thee, neither is it far off.

12 ™ It is not in heaven, that thou should-
est say. Who shall go up for us to heaven,
and bring it unto us, that we may hear it,
and do it ?

13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou
shouldest say. Who shall go over the sea for
us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it,
and do it ?

14 But the word is very nigh unto thee,
in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou
mayest do it.

15 IF See, "I have set before thee this day
life and good, and death and evil ;

16 In that I command thee this day to
love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways,
and to keep his commandments, and his
statutes, and his judgments, that thou mayest
live and multiply : and the Lord thy God
shall bless thee in the land whither thou
goest to possess it.

17 But if thine heart turn away, so that
thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away,
and worship other gods, and serve them ;

18 ° I denounce unto you this day, that yc
shall surely perish, and that ye shall not
prolong your days upon the land, Avhi-
ther thou passest over Jordan to go to
possess it.

19 p I call heaven and earth to record this
day against you, that il have set before you
life and death, blessing and cursing : there-
fore choose life, that both thou and thy seed
may live :

20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy
God, and that thou mayest obey his voice,
and that thou mayest cleave unto him (for
he is thy ''life, and the length of thy days)
that thou mayest dwell in the land which
the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abra-
ham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

God, giveth a charge to Joshua, 19 and a song to tes-
tify against the people. 24 Moses delivereth the book
of the law to the Levites to keep. 28 He maketh a
protestation to the elders.

AND Moses went and spake these words
unto all Israel.

2 And he said unto them, I ^am an hun-
dred and twenty years old this day ; I can
no more ""go out and come in : also the
Lord hath said unto me, ''Thou shalt not
go over this Jordan.

3 The Lord thy God, ''he will go over
before thee, and he will destroy these na-
tions from before thee, and thou shalt pos-
sess them : and Joshua he shall go over
before thee, "as the Lord hath said.

4 ''And the Lord shall do unto them
sas he did to Sihon, and to Og, kings of
the Amorites, and unto the land of them,
whom he destroyed.

5 And ''the Lord shall give them up
before your face, that j^e may do unto them
according unto all the commandments which
I have commanded you.

6 ' Be strong and of a good courage, ''fear
not, nor be afraid of them : for the Lord thy
God, 'he it is that doth go with thee, "he
will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

7 H And Moses called unto Joshua, and
said unto him in the sight of all Israel, "Be
strong and of a good courage : for thou must
go with this people unto the land which the
Lord hath sworn unto their fathers to give
them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.

8 And the Lord, ° he it is that doth go
before thee ; p he will be with thee, he will
not fail thee, neither forsake thee : fear not,
neither be dismayed.

9 IF And Moses wrote this law, land de-
livered it unto the priests the sons of Levi,
■■ which bare the ark of the covenant of the
Lord, and unto all the elders of Israel.

10 And Moses commanded them, saying,
At the end of every seven years, in the so-
lemnity of the "year of release, 'in the feast
of tabernacles,

11 When all Israel is come to "appear be-
fore the Lord thy God in the place which he
shall choose, ^thou shalt read this law before
all Israel in their hearing.

12 y Gather the people together, men, and
women, and children, and thy stranger that
is within thy gates, that they may hear, and
that they may learn, and fear the Lord your
God, and observe to do all the words of this
law :

13 And that their children ^ which have
not known any thiiig, '-^ may hear, and learn
to fear the Lord your God, as long as j^e
live in the land whither ye
to possess it.

go over Jordan



The book of the law.

14 IT And the Lord said unto Moses, ''Be-
hold, thy days approach that thou must die:
call Joshua, and present yourselves in the
tabernacle of the congregation, that "I may
give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua
went and presented themselves in the taber-
nacle of the congregation.

15 And ''the Lord appeared in the taber-
nacle in a pillar of a cloud : and the pillar of
the cloud stood over the door of the taber-
nacle.

16 IT And the Lord said unto Moses, Be-
hold, thou shalt t sleep with thy fathers,
and this people will *rise up, and ♦"go a
whoring after the gods of the strangers of
the land, whither they go to be among them,
and will s forsake me, and ''break my cove-
nant which I have made with them.

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 trou-
bles shall t befall them, so that they will say
in that day, ' Are not these evils come upon
us, because our God is ""not among us ?

18 And "I will surely hide my face in
that day for all the evils which they shall
have wrought, in that they aie turned unto
other gods.

19 Now therefore write ye this song for
you, and teach it the children of Israel : put
it in their mouths, that this song may be
"a witness for me against the children of
Israel.

20 For when I shall have brought them
into the land which I sware unto their fathers,
that floweth with milk and honey ; and they
shall have eaten and filled themselves, Pand
waxen fat; i then will they turn unto other
gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and
break my covenant.

21 And it shall come to pass, ' when many
evils and troubles are befallen them, that this
song shall testify t against them as a witness :
for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths
of their seed: for =1 know their imagination
' which t they go about, even now, before
I have brought them into the land which
I sware.

22 IF Moses therefore wrote this song the
same day, and taught it the children of
Israel.

23 " And he gave Joshua the son of Nun
a charge, and said, ^ Be strong and of a good
courage : for thou shalt bring the children of
Israel into the land which I sware unto them :
and I will be with thee.

24 IF And it came to pass, when Moses had
made an end of y writing the words of this
law in a book, until they were finished.

Moses^ song.

25 That Moses commanded the Levites
which bare the ark of the covenant of the
Lord, saying,

26 Take this book of the law, 'and put it
in the side of the ark of the covenant of the
Lord your God, that it may be there "^for a
witness against thee.

27 '•For I know thy rebellion, and thy
"stiff neck : behold, while I am yet alive
with you this day, ye have been rebellious
against the Lord j and how much more after
my death ?

28 H Gather unto me all the elders of your
tribes, and your officers, that I may speak
these words in their ears, ''and call heaven
and earth to record against them.

29 For I know that after my death ye will
utterly ''corrupt yoursehes, and turn aside
from the way which I have commanded you;
and '"evil will befall you ^ in the latter days ;
because ye will do evil in the sight of the
Lord, to provoke him to anger through the
work of your hands.

30 And Moses spake in the ears of all
the congregation of Israel the words of this
song until they were ended.

CHAP. XXXIL

I Moses' song, which setteth forth God's mercy and veti-
geance. 46 He exhorteih ihem to set their hearts upo7t
it. 48 God sendeth him up to mount Nebo, to see the
laiid, and die.

GIVE °^ear, O ye heavens, and I will
speak ; and hear, O earth, the words
of my mouth.

2 '•My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my
speech shall distil as the dew, "as the small
rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers
upon the grass:

3 Because I will publish the name of the
Lord: ''ascribe ye greatness unto our God.

4 He is "the Rock, ^his work is perfect :
for ^all his ways are judgment : ''a God of
truth and 'without iniquity, just and right
is he.

5 t''They have corrupted themselves,

II their spot is not the spot of his children :
they are a 'perverse and crooked generation.

6 Do ye thus ""requite the Lord, O foolish
people and unwise ? is not he "thy father that
hath "bought thee? hath he not Pmade thee,
and estabhshed thee?

7 H Remember the days of old, consider
the years of f many generations : i ask thy
father, and he will shew thee ; thy elders,
and they will tell thee.

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 chil-
dren of Israel.

Moses' song, which setteth forth



DEUTERONOMY.



God's mercy and vengeance.



9 For Hhe Lord's portion is his people ;
Jacob is the t lot of his inheritance.

10 He found him "in a desert land, and in
the waste howling wilderness ; he |1 led him
about, he ^instructed him, he ^kept him as
the apple of his eye.

11 ^As an eagle stirreth up her nest, flut-
tereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her
wings, taketh them, beareth them on her
wings ;

12 (So the Lord alone did lead him, and
there was no strange god with him.

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;

14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep,with fat
of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and
goats, '^ with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and
thou didst drink the pure "i blood of the grape.

15 IF But ® Jeshurun waxed fat, and ''kick-
ed : ffthou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick,
thou art covered with fatness ; then he ^ for-
sook God which 'made him, and lightly
esteemed the ""Rock of his salvation.

16 'They provoked him to jealousy with
strange gods, with abominations provoked
they him to anger.

17 ■" They sacrificed unto devils, || not to
God ; to gods whom they knew not, to new
gods that came newly up, whom your fathers
feared not.

18 "Of the Rock that begat thee thou art
unmindful, and hast "forgotten God that
formed thee.

19 "And when the Lord saw i/, he
II abhorred them, i because of the provoking
of his sons, and of his daughters.

20 And he said, "^I will hide my face from
them, I will see what their end shall be : for
they are a very froward generation, ' children
in whom is no faith.

21 'They have moved me to jealousy with
that which is not God ; they have provoked
me to anger "with their vanities : and '=1 will
move them to jealousy with those which are
not a people ; I will provoke them to anger
with a foolish nation.

22 For ya fire is kindled in mine anger,
and II shall burn unto the lowest hell, and
II shall consume the earth with her increase,
and set on fire the foundations of the moun-

tarns.



23 I will ^ heap mischiefs upon them ; ^ I
will spend mine arrows upon them.

24 Theij shall be burnt with hunger, and
devoured with f burning heat, and with bitter
destruction : I will also send ^ the teeth of
beasts upon them, with the poison of ser-
pents of the dust.

25 ''The sword without, and terror f with-
in, shall t destroy both the young man and
the virgin, the suckling also with the man of
gray hairs.

26 ''I said, I would scatter them into cor-
ners, I would make the remembrance of them
to cease from among men ;

27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of
the enemy, lest their adversaries * should be-
have themselves strangely, and lest they
should ''say, || Our hand is high, and the
Lord hath not done all this.

28 For they are a nation void of coun-
sel, f neither is there any understanding in
them.

29 •'O that they were wise, that they un-
derstood this, 'that they would consider their
latter end!

30 How should "^one chase a thousand,
and two put ten thousand to flight, except
their Rock 'had sold them, and the Lord
had shut them up?

31 For "their rock is not as our Rock,
"even our enemies themselves being iudges:

32 For ° their vine || is of the vine of So-
dom, and of the fields of Gomorrah : their
grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are
bitter :

33 Their wine is p the poison of dragons,
and the cruel i venom of asps.

34 Is not this ■'laid up in store with me,
and sealed up among my treasures?

35 ^To me belongeih vengeance, and re-
compense; their foot shall slide in due time :
for 'the day of their calamity is at hand,
and the things that shall come upon them
make haste.

36 "For the Lord shall judge his people,
"^and repent himself for his servants ; when
he seeth that their f power is gone, and
y there is none shut up, or left.

37 And he shall say, ^ Where are their
gods, their rock in whom they trusted,

38 Which did eat the fat of their sacri-
fices, and drank the wine of their drink-
offerings ? let them rise up and help you, and
be tyour protection.

39 See now that "I, even I, am he, and
^ there is no god with me: "I kill, and I make
alive ; I wound, and I heal : neither is there
any that can deliver out of my hand.

40 ^For I lift up my hand to heaven, and
say, I live for ever.

41 "=If I whet my glittering sword, and
mine hand take hold on judgment; *'I will
render vengeance to mine enemies, and will
reward them that hate me.

42 I will make mine arrows e drunk with
blood, and my sword shall devour flesh ; and

people : for he will ''avenge the blood of his

44 IT And Moses came and spake all the
words of this song in the ears of the people,
he and || Hosjiea the son of Nun.

45 And Moses made an end of speaking
all these words to all Israel :

46 And he said unto them, "Set your
hearts unto all the words which I testify
among you this day, which ye shall command
your children to observe to do, all the words
of this law.

47 For it is not a vain thing for you:
"because it is your hfe ; and through this
thing ye shall prolong your days in the
land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
