Deuteronomy 4

  1 H8085 [H8798] Now therefore hearken H3478 , O Israel H2706 , to the statutes H4941 and to the judgments H3925 [H8764] , which I teach H6213 [H8800] you, to do H2421 [H8799] them, that ye may live H935 [H8804] , and go in H3423 [H8804] and possess H776 the land H3068 which the LORD H430 God H1 of your fathers H5414 [H8802] giveth you.
  2 H3254 [H8686] Ye shall not add H1697 to the word H6680 [H8764] which I command H1639 [H8799] you, neither shall ye diminish H8104 [H8800] any thing from it, that ye may keep H4687 the commandments H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H6680 [H8764] which I command you.
  3 H5869 Your eyes H7200 [H8802] have seen H3068 what the LORD H6213 [H8804] did H1187 because of Baalpeor H376 : for all the men H310 H1980 [H8804] that followed H1187 Baalpeor H3068 , the LORD H430 thy God H8045 [H8689] hath destroyed H7130 them from among you.
  4 H1695 But ye who held fast H3068 to the LORD H430 your God H2416 are alive H3117 each one of you this day.
  5 H7200 [H8798] Behold H3925 [H8765] , I have taught H2706 you statutes H4941 and judgments H834 , even as H3068 the LORD H430 my God H6680 [H8765] commanded H6213 [H8800] me, that ye should do H7130 so in H776 the land H935 [H8802] where ye go H3423 [H8800] to possess it.
  6 H8104 [H8804] Keep H6213 [H8804] therefore and do H2451 them; for this is your wisdom H998 and your understanding H5869 in the sight H5971 of the nations H8085 [H8799] , which shall hear H2706 all these statutes H559 [H8804] , and say H1419 , Surely this great H1471 nation H2450 is a wise H995 [H8737] and understanding H5971 people.
  7 H1471 For what nation H1419 is there so great H430 , which hath God H7138 so near H3068 to them, as the LORD H430 our God H7121 [H8800] is in all things that we call upon him for?
  8 H1471 And what nation H1419 is there so great H2706 , that hath statutes H4941 and judgments H6662 so righteous H8451 as all this law H5414 [H8802] , which I set H6440 before H3117 you this day?
  9 H8104 [H8734] Only take heed H8104 [H8798] to thyself, and keep H5315 thy soul H3966 diligently H7911 [H8799] , lest thou shouldest forget H1697 the things H5869 which thy eyes H7200 [H8804] have seen H5493 [H8799] , and lest they depart H3824 from thy heart H3117 all the days H2416 of thy life H3045 [H8689] : but teach H1121 them to thy sons H1121 , and thy sons H1121 ' sons;
  10 H3117 Especially the day H5975 [H8804] that thou stoodest H6440 before H3068 the LORD H430 thy God H2722 in Horeb H3068 , when the LORD H559 [H8800] said H6950 [H8685] to me, Gather H5971 the people H8085 [H8686] to me, and I will make them hear H1697 my words H3925 [H8799] , that they may learn H3372 [H8800] to fear H3117 me all the days H2416 that they shall live H127 upon the earth H3925 [H8762] , and that they may teach H1121 their children.
  11 H7126 [H8799] And ye came near H5975 [H8799] and stood H2022 under the mountain H2022 ; and the mountain H1197 [H8802] burned H784 with fire H3820 to the midst H8064 of heaven H6205 , with darkness H6051 , clouds H2822 , and thick darkness.
  12 H3068 And the LORD H1696 [H8762] spoke H8432 to you out of the midst H784 of the fire H8085 [H8802] : ye heard H6963 the voice H1697 of the words H7200 [H8802] , but saw H8544 no similitude H2108 ; only H6963 ye heard a voice.
  13 H5046 [H8686] And he declared H1285 to you his covenant H6680 [H8765] , which he commanded H6213 [H8800] you to perform H6235 , even ten H1697 commandments H3789 [H8799] ; and he wrote H8147 them upon two H3871 tables H68 of stone.
  14 H3068 And the LORD H6680 [H8765] commanded H6256 me at that time H3925 [H8763] to teach H2706 you statutes H4941 and judgments H6213 [H8800] , that ye might do H776 them in the land H5674 [H8802] where ye go over H3423 [H8800] to possess it.
  15 H3966 Take ye therefore good H8104 [H8738] heed H5315 to yourselves H7200 [H8804] ; for ye saw H8544 no manner of similitude H3117 on the day H3068 that the LORD H1696 [H8763] spoke H2722 to you in Horeb H8432 out of the midst H784 of the fire:
  16 H7843 [H8686] Lest ye corrupt H6213 [H8804] yourselves, and make H6459 to you a graven image H8544 , the similitude H5566 of any figure H8403 , the likeness H2145 of male H5347 or female,
  17 H8403 The likeness H929 of any beast H776 that is on the earth H8403 , the likeness H3671 of any winged H6833 fowl H5774 [H8799] that flieth H8064 in the air,
  18 H8403 The likeness H7430 [H8802] of any thing that creepeth H127 on the ground H8403 , the likeness H1710 of any fish H4325 that is in the waters H8478 beneath H776 the earth:
  19 H5375 [H8799] And lest thou shouldest lift up H5869 thy eyes H8064 to heaven H7200 [H8804] , and when thou seest H8121 the sun H3394 , and the moon H3556 , and the stars H6635 , even all the host H8064 of heaven H5080 [H8738] , shouldest be driven H7812 [H8694] to worship H5647 [H8804] them, and serve H3068 them, which the LORD H430 thy God H2505 [H8804] hath divided H5971 to all nations H8064 under the whole heaven.
  20 H3068 But the LORD H3947 [H8804] hath taken H3318 [H8686] you, and brought you H1270 out of the iron H3564 furnace H4714 , even from Egypt H5971 , to be to him a people H5159 of inheritance H3117 , as ye are this day.
  21 H3068 Furthermore the LORD H599 [H8694] was angry H1697 with me for your sakes H7650 [H8735] , and swore H5674 [H8800] that I should not go over H3383 Jordan H935 [H8800] , and that I should not enter H2896 that good H776 land H3068 , which the LORD H430 thy God H5414 [H8802] giveth H5159 thee for an inheritance:
  22 H4191 [H8801] But I must die H776 in this land H5674 [H8802] , I must not go over H3383 Jordan H5674 [H8802] : but ye shall go over H3423 [H8804] , and possess H2896 that good H776 land.
  23 H8104 [H8734] Take heed H7911 [H8799] to yourselves, lest ye forget H1285 the covenant H3068 of the LORD H430 your God H3772 [H8804] , which he made H6213 [H8804] with you, and make H6459 you a graven image H8544 , or the likeness H3605 of any H3068 thing, which the LORD H430 thy God H6680 [H8765] hath forbidden thee.
  24 H3068 For the LORD H430 thy God H398 [H8802] is a consuming H784 fire H7067 , even a jealous H410 God.
  25 H3205 [H8686] When thou shalt beget H1121 children H1121 , and children's H1121 children H3462 [H8738] , and ye shall have remained long H776 in the land H7843 [H8689] , and shall corrupt H6213 [H8804] yourselves, and make H6459 a graven image H8544 , or the likeness H6213 [H8804] of any thing, and shall do H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD H430 thy God H3707 [H8687] , to provoke him to anger:
  26 H5749 0 I call H8064 heaven H776 and earth H5749 [H8689] to witness H3117 against you this day H4118 , that ye shall soon H6 [H8800] utterly H6 [H8799] perish H776 from the land H5674 [H8802] where ye go over H3383 Jordan H3423 [H8800] to possess H748 [H8686] it; ye shall not prolong H3117 your days H8045 [H8736] upon it, but shall be utterly H8045 [H8735] destroyed.
  27 H3068 And the LORD H6327 [H8689] shall scatter H5971 you among the nations H7604 [H8738] , and ye shall be left H4962 few H4557 in number H1471 among the heathen H3068 , where the LORD H5090 [H8762] shall lead you.
  28 H5647 [H8804] And there ye shall serve H430 gods H4639 , the work H120 of men's H3027 hands H6086 , wood H68 and stone H7200 [H8799] , which neither see H8085 [H8799] , nor hear H398 [H8799] , nor eat H7306 [H8686] , nor smell.
  29 H1245 [H8765] But if from there thou shalt seek H3068 the LORD H430 thy God H4672 [H8804] , thou shalt find H1875 [H8799] him, if thou shalt seek H3824 him with all thy heart H5315 and with all thy soul.
  30 H6862 When thou art in tribulation H1697 , and all these things H4672 [H8804] have come H319 upon thee, even in the latter H3117 days H7725 [H8804] , if thou shalt turn H3068 to the LORD H430 thy God H8085 [H8804] , and shalt be obedient H6963 to his voice;
  31 H3068 (For the LORD H430 thy God H7349 is a merciful H410 God H7503 [H8686] ;) he will not forsake H7843 [H8686] thee, neither destroy H7911 [H8799] thee, nor forget H1285 the covenant H1 of thy fathers H7650 [H8738] which he swore to them.
  32 H7592 [H8798] For ask H3117 now of the days H7223 that are past H1961 [H8738] , which were H6440 before H3117 thee, since the day H430 that God H1254 [H8804] created H120 man H776 upon the earth H7097 , and ask from the one side H8064 of heaven H1419 to the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great H1697 thing H8085 [H8738] is, or hath been heard like it?
  33 H5971 Did ever people H8085 [H8804] hear H6963 the voice H430 of God H1696 [H8764] speaking from H8432 the midst H784 of the fire H8085 [H8804] , as thou hast heard H2421 [H8799] , and live?
  34 H430 Or hath God H5254 [H8765] ever tried H935 [H8800] to go H3947 [H8800] and take H1471 for himself a nation H7130 from the midst H1471 of another nation H4531 , by temptations H226 , by signs H4159 , and by wonders H4421 , and by war H2389 , and by a mighty H3027 hand H5186 [H8803] , and by an outstretched H2220 arm H1419 , and by great H4172 terrors H3068 , according to all that the LORD H430 your God H6213 [H8804] did H4714 for you in Egypt H5869 before your eyes?
  35 H7200 [H8717] To thee it was shown H3045 [H8800] , that thou mightest know H3068 that the LORD H430 he is God H5750 ; there is none H905 besides him.
  36 H8064 Out of heaven H8085 [H8689] he made thee to hear H6963 his voice H3256 [H8763] , that he might instruct H776 thee: and upon earth H7200 [H8689] he showed H1419 thee his great H784 fire H8085 [H8804] ; and thou heardest H1697 his words H8432 from the midst H784 of the fire.
  37 H157 [H8804] And because he loved H1 thy fathers H977 [H8799] , therefore he chose H2233 their seed H310 after H3318 [H8686] them, and brought thee out H4714 of Egypt H6440 ; in his sight H1419 with his mighty H3581 power;
  38 H3423 [H8687] To drive out H1471 nations H6440 from before H1419 thee greater H6099 and mightier H935 [H8687] than thou art, to bring H5414 [H8800] thee in, to give H776 thee their land H5159 for an inheritance H3117 , as it is this day.
  39 H3045 [H8804] Know H3117 therefore this day H7725 [H8689] , and consider H3824 it in thy heart H3068 , that the LORD H430 he is God H8064 in heaven H4605 above H776 , and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
  40 H8104 [H8804] Thou shalt keep H2706 therefore his statutes H4687 , and his commandments H6680 [H8764] , which I command H3117 thee this day H3190 [H8799] , that it may be well H1121 with thee, and with thy children H310 after H748 [H8686] thee, and that thou mayest prolong H3117 thy days H127 upon the earth H3068 , which the LORD H430 thy God H5414 [H8802] giveth thee, for ever.
  41 H4872 Then Moses H914 [H8686] set apart H7969 three H5892 cities H5676 on the side H3383 of Jordan H8121 H4217 toward the sunrising;
  42 H7523 [H8802] That the slayer H5127 [H8800] might flee H7523 [H8799] there, who should kill H7453 his neighbour H1097 H1847 unintentionally H8130 [H8802] , and when he had not hated H8543 him in times H8032 past H5127 [H8804] ; and that fleeing H259 to one H411 of these H5892 cities H2425 [H8804] he might live:
  43 H1221 Namely, Bezer H4057 in the wilderness H4334 , in the plain H776 country H7206 , of the Reubenites H7216 ; and Ramoth H1568 in Gilead H1425 , of the Gadites H1474 ; and Golan H1316 in Bashan H4520 , of the Manassites.
  44 H8451 And this is the law H4872 which Moses H7760 [H8804] set H6440 before H1121 the children H3478 of Israel:
  45 H5713 These are the testimonies H2706 , and the statutes H4941 , and the judgments H4872 , which Moses H1696 [H8765] spoke H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel H3318 [H8800] , after they came forth H4714 from Egypt,
  46 H5676 On the east side H3383 of Jordan H1516 , in the valley H4136 opposite H1047 Bethpeor H776 , in the land H5511 of Sihon H4428 king H567 of the Amorites H3427 [H8802] , who dwelt H2809 at Heshbon H4872 , whom Moses H1121 and the children H3478 of Israel H5221 [H8689] smote H3318 [H8800] , after they had come forth H4714 from Egypt:
  47 H3423 [H8799] And they possessed H776 his land H776 , and the land H5747 of Og H4428 king H1316 of Bashan H8147 , two H4428 kings H567 of the Amorites H5676 , who were on the side H3383 of Jordan H4217 H8121 toward the sunrising;
  48 H6177 From Aroer H8193 , which is by the bank H5158 of the river H769 Arnon H2022 , even to mount H7865 Sion H2768 , which is Hermon,
  49 H6160 And all the plain H5676 on the side H3383 of Jordan H4217 eastward H3220 , even to the sea H6160 of the plain H794 , under the springs H6449 of Pisgah.
