Deuteronomy 4

ECB(i) 1
MOSHEH LAYS OUT THE TORAH And now hearken, O Yisra El, to the statutes and to the judgments I teach you - to work them - to live and go in and possess the land Yah Veh Elohim of your fathers gives you: 2 neither add to the word I misvah you, nor diminish from it - to guard the misvoth of Yah Veh your Elohim that I misvah you. 3 Your eyes saw what Yah Veh worked because of Baal Peor: for all the men who went after Baal Peor, Yah Veh your Elohim destroyed from your midst. 4 But you who adhered to Yah Veh your Elohim - every one of you is alive this day. 5 See, I taught you statutes and judgments, even as Yah Veh my Elohim misvahed me, to work thus midst the land you go to possess. 6 Guard and work; for this is your wisdom and your discernment in the eyes of the people who hear all these statutes; and say, Surely this great goyim is a wise and discerning people! 7 For what goyim, so great, who has Elohim so nigh them, as Yah Veh our Elohim, for all we call on him? 8 And what goyim, so great, whose statutes and judgments as just as all this torah, which I set at your face this day? 9 Only guard yourself and guard your soul mightily, lest you forget the words your eyes saw; and lest they turn aside from your heart all the days of your life: but teach them to your sons and the sons of your sons. 10 The day you stood at the face of Yah Veh your Elohim in Horeb, when Yah Veh said to me, Congregate the people to hear my words - to learn to awe me all the days they live on the soil and to teach their sons. 11 And you approached and stood under the mountain; and the mountain kindled with fire to the heart of the heavens with darkness, clouds and dripping darkness: 12 and Yah Veh worded to you from midst the fire: you heard the voice of the words, but saw no manifestation - except a voice. 13 And he told you the covenant he misvahed you to work - ten words; and he inscribed them on two slabs of stone. 14 And at that time, Yah Veh misvahed me to teach you statutes and judgments - to work them in the land you pass over to possess. 15
MOSHEH WARNS AGAINST IDOLATRY Guard your souls mightily; for you saw no manifestation on the day Yah Veh worded to you in Horeb from midst the fire: 16 lest you ruin, and work a sculptile - the manifestation of any figurine the pattern of male or female, 17 the pattern of any animal on the earth, the pattern of any winged fowl flying in the heavens, 18 the pattern of aught creeping on the soil, the pattern of any fish in the waters beneath the earth: 19 and lest you lift up your eyes to the heavens and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars and all the host of the heavens and be driven to prostrate to them and serve them - which Yah Veh your Elohim allotted to all people under the whole of the heavens. 20 But Yah Veh took you and brought you from the iron furnace - even from Misrayim, to becomes his people of inheritance, as this day. 21 And Yah Veh was angry with me because of your words; and oathed that I not pass over Yarden and that I not go in to that good land, which Yah Veh your Elohim gave you - an inheritance: 22 and I die in this land; I pass not over Yarden: and you pass over and possess that good land. 23 Guard yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of Yah Veh your Elohim, which he cut with you - and work yourselves a sculptile or a manifestation of which Yah Veh your Elohim misvahed you. 24 For Yah Veh your Elohim is a consuming fire - a jealous El. 25 When you birth sons and sons of sons and linger in the land and ruin and make a sculptile or a manifestation and work evil in the eyes of Yah Veh your Elohim, to vex him to wrath: 26 I call the heavens and earth to witness against you this day, that in destructing, you suddenly destruct from off the land whereunto you pass over Yarden to possess; that you prolong not your days thereon, but in desolating, become desolated: 27 and Yah Veh scatter you among the nations and you be few men in number of the people who survive, where Yah Veh drives you. 28 And there you serve elohim, the work of human hands - timber and stone, which neither see nor hear nor eat nor scent. 29 And if from there you seek Yah Veh your Elohim - and find if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul 30 - when you are in tribulation and all these words find you - even in the final days, if you turn to Yah Veh your Elohim and hearken to his voice; 31
YAH VEH, A MERCIFUL EL for Yah Veh your Elohim is a merciful El; he neither lets you loose nor ruins you, nor forgets the covenant of your fathers which he oathed to them. 32 For ask, I beseech, of the first days at your face, since the day Elohim created humanity on the earth, from the end of the heavens to the end of the heavens, whether there has been such as this great word, or has been heard the like? 33 Has a people ever heard the voice of Elohim wording from midst the fire, as you heard, and lived? 34 Or has Elohim tested to go and take him a goyim from midst a goyim, by testings, by signs and by omens and by war and by a strong hand and by a spread arm and by great awesomenesses, according to all Yah Veh your Elohim worked for you in Misrayim in your eyes? 35 You saw, so that you know that Yah Veh Elohim - none else beside him. 36 From the heavens he had you hear his voice, to discipline you: and on earth he had you see his great fire; and had you hear his words from midst the fire. 37 And because he loved your fathers, he chose their seed after them and brought you out at his face with his mighty force from Misrayim; 38 to dispossess from your face goyim greater and mightier than you; to bring you in, to give you their land - an inheritance, as this day. 39 Know this day, and return it in your heart, that Yah Veh is Elohim in the heavens above and on the earth beneath - none else. 40 And guard his statutes and his misvoth, which I misvah you this day, that it well-please you and your sons after you and that you prolong your days on the soil, which Yah Veh your Elohim gives you for all days. 41
MOSHEH SEPARATES CITIES OF REFUGE Then Mosheh separates three cities on this side Yarden toward the sunrising; 42 for the murderer to flee to - who murders his friend unknowingly, who hated him not three yesters ago; and that fleeing to one of these cities he lives: 43 - Beser in the wilderness, in the plain land, of the Reu Beniy; and Ramoth in Gilad, of the Gadiy; and Golan in Bashan, of the Menash Shehiy. 44
RESUME' OF THE TORAH And this is the torah Mosheh set at the face of the sons of Yisra El: 45 these are the witnesses and the statutes and the judgments, Mosheh worded to the sons of Yisra El, after they came from Misrayim. 46 On this side Yarden, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, in the land of Sichon sovereign of the Emoriy, who settled at Heshbon, whom Mosheh and the sons of Yisra El smote, as they came from Misrayim: 47 and possessed his land and the land of Og sovereign of Bashan - two sovereigns of the Emoriy, on this side Yarden toward the sunrising; 48 from Aroer, by the edge of the wadi Arnon, even to mount Sion - Hermon, 49 and all the plain on this side Yarden toward the rising, even to the sea of the plain under the springs of Pisgah.
