1 ¶ Now² therefore hearken,ºª O Israel,º unto² the statutesº and unto² the judgments,º which² I² teachºª you, for to doºª [them], that² ye may live,ºª and go inºª and possessºª² the landº which² the LORDº Godº of your fathersº givethºª you. 2 Ye shall not² addºª unto² the wordº which² I² commandºª you, neither² shall ye diminishºª [ought] from² it, that ye may keepºª² the commandmentsº of the LORDº your Godº which² I² commandºª you. 3 Your eyesº have seenºª² what² the LORDº didºª because of Baalpeor:º for² all² the menº that² followedººª Baalpeor,º the LORDº thy Godº hath destroyedºª them from amongº² you. 4 But ye² that did cleaveº unto the LORDº your Godº [are] aliveº every one² of you this day.º 5 Behold,ºª I have taughtºª you statutesº and judgments,º even asº the LORDº my Godº commandedºª me, that ye should doºª so² inº the landº whither²² ye² goºª to possessºª it. 6 Keepºª therefore and doºª [them]; for² this² [is] your wisdomº and your understandingº in the sightº of the nations,º which² shall hearºª² all² these² statutes,º and say,ºª Surely² this² greatº nationº [is] a wiseº and understandingºª people.º 7 For² what² nationº [is there so] great,º who² [hath] Godº [so] nighº unto² them, as the LORDº our Godº [is] in all² [things that] we callºª upon² him [for]? 8 And what² nationº [is there so] great,º that² hath statutesº and judgmentsº [so] righteousº as all² this² law,º which² I² setºª beforeº you this day?º 9 Only² take heedºª to thyself, and keepºª thy soulº diligently,º lest² thou forgetºª² the thingsº which² thine eyesº have seen,ºª and lest² they departºª from thy heartº² all² the daysº of thy life:º but teachºª them thy sons,º and thy sons'º sons;º 10 [Specially] the dayº that² thou stoodestºª beforeº the LORDº thy Godº in Horeb,º when the LORDº saidºª unto² me, Gather¹ª me the people¹ together,ºª²² and I will make them hearºª² my words,º that² they may learnºª to fearºª me all² the daysº that² they² shall liveº upon² the earth,º and [that] they may teachºª their children.º 11 And ye came nearºª and stoodºª under² the mountain;º and the mountainº burnedºª with fireº unto² the midstº of heaven,º with darkness,º clouds,º and thick darkness.¹² 12 And the LORDº spakeºª unto² you out of the midstº² of the fire:º ye² heardºª the voiceº of the words,º but sawºª no² similitude;º onlyº [ye heard] a voice.º 13 And he declaredºª unto you² his covenant,º which² he commandedºª you to perform,ºª [even] tenº commandments;º and he wroteºª them upon² twoº tablesº of stone.º

25 ¶ When² thou shalt begetºª children,º and children'sº children,º and ye shall have remained longºª in the land,º and shall corruptºª [yourselves], and makeºª a graven image,º [or] the likenessº of any² [thing], and shall doºª evilº in the sightº of the LORDº thy God,º to provoke him to anger:ºª 26 I callºª² heavenº and earthº to witnessºª against you this day,º that² ye shall soonº utterly¹ª perishºª from off²² the landº whereunto²² ye² go overºª² Jordanº to possessºª it; ye shall not² prolongºª [your] daysº upon² it, but² shall utterly¹ª be destroyed.ºª 27 And the LORDº shall scatterºª you among the nations,º and ye shall be leftºª fewº in numberº among the heathen,º whither²² the LORDº shall leadºª you. 28 And there² ye shall serveºª gods,º the workº of men'sº hands,º woodº and stone,º which² neither² see,ºª nor² hear,ºª nor² eat,ºª nor² smell.ºª 29 But if from thence²² thou shalt seekºª² the LORDº thy God,º thou shalt findºª [him], if² thou seekºª him with all² thy heartº and with all² thy soul.º 30 When thou art in tribulation,º and all² these² thingsº are comeºª upon thee, [even] in the latterº days,º if thou turnºª to² the LORDº thy God,º and shalt be obedientºª unto his voice;º 31 (For² the LORDº thy Godº [is] a mercifulº God;)º he will not² forsakeºª thee, neither² destroyºª thee, nor² forgetºª² the covenantº of thy fathersº which² he swareºª unto them. 32 For² askºª now² of the daysº that are past,º which² wereºª beforeº thee, since² the dayº that² Godº createdºª manº upon² the earth,º and [ask] from the one sideº² of heavenº unto² the other,²² whether there hath been² [any such thing] as this² greatº thingº [is], or² hath been heardºª like it?² 33 Did [ever] peopleº hearºª the voiceº of Godº speaking² out¹ª of the midstº² of the fire,º as² thou² hast heard,ºª and live?ºª 34 Or² hath Godº assayedºª to goºª [and] takeºª him a nationº from the midstº² of [another] nation,º by temptations,º by signs,º and by wonders,º and by war,º and by a mightyº hand,º and by a stretched outºª arm,º and by greatº terrors,º according to all² that² the LORDº your Godº didºª for you in Egyptº before your eyes?º 35 Unto thee² it was shewed,ºª that thou mightest knowºª that² the LORDº he² [is] God;º [there is] none² elseº beside²² him.¹ 36 Out of² heavenº he made thee to hearºª² his voice,º that he might instructºª thee: and upon² earthº he shewedºª thee² his greatº fire;º and thou heardestºª his wordsº out of the midstº² of the fire.º 37 And because²² he lovedºª² thy fathers,º therefore he choseºª their seedº afterº them, and brought thee outºª in his sightº with his mightyº powerº out of Egypt;º² 38 To drive outºª nationsº from beforeº² thee greaterº and mightierº than² thou [art], to bring¹ª thee in,² to giveºª thee² their landº [for] an inheritance,º as [it is] this² day.º 39 Knowºª therefore this day,º and considerºª [it] in² thine heart,º that² the LORDº he² [is] Godº in heavenº above,º² and upon² the earthº beneath:²² [there is] none² else.² 40 Thou shalt keepºª therefore² his statutes,º and his commandments,º which² I² commandºª thee this day,º that² it may go wellºª with thee, and with thy childrenº after
