The same, is he that came to be in the assembly in the desert, with the messenger who was speaking with him in Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, he who welcomed living utterances, to give unto us:
Who, indeed, received the law through ranks of messengers, - and guarded it not.
For, even when ye ought to be teachers, by reason of the time, again, have ye, need, that one be teaching, you, what are the first principles of the oracles of God, and have become such as have, need, of milk, not, of strong food;
If any one speaketh, as oracles of God, if any one ministereth, as of strength which, God, supplieth, - that, in all things, God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, - unto whom are the glory and the dominion, unto the ages of ages. Amen!
he said unto them - Apply your hearts unto all the words which I am witnessing against you, to-day, - how that ye must command your sons to observe to do all the words of this law;
A law, did Moses command us, - A possession, for the convocation of Jacob.
In all their affliction, he, was afflicted And the messenger of his presence saved them, In his love and in his pity, he, redeemed them, - And then lifted them up and carried them all the days of the age-past time.
Because, the law, through Moses, was given, favour and truth, through Jesus Christ, came into existence.
And when Moses, had gone up unto God, then called Yahweh unto him out of the mountain saying, Thus, shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, And tell the sons of Israel:
And they said unto Moses, Speak, thou, with us, and we will hear, - but let not God speak with us lest we die.
Now, these are the regulations which thou shalt put before them.
and gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron and said unto them Too much for you, when, all the assembly, are, all of them, holy, and in the midst of them, is Yahweh, - Wherefore, then, should ye set yourselves up, above the convocation of Yahweh?
And all the assembly of the sons of Israel murmured, on the morrow, against Moses and against, Aaron, saying, - Ye, have caused the death of the people of Yahweh.
Go, thou, near, and hear, all that Yahweh our God shall say, - so shalt thou speak unto us, all that Yahweh our God shall speak unto thee and we will hear and do.
This, then is the commandment - namely the statutes and the regulations, which Yahweh your God bath commanded to teach you, - that ye may do them in the land whither ye are passing over to possess it:
I call to witness against you to-day, the heavens and the earth, that life and death, have I set before thee, the blessing and the curse, - therefore shouldest thou choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed;
And, upon Mount Sinai, camest thou down, and spakest with them out of the heavens, - and gavest them just regulations, and faithful laws, good statutes and commandments.
When he set up a testimony in Jacob, And, a law, appointed in Israel, - Which he commanded our fathers, That they might make them known to their children;
The spirit, it is, that giveth life, - the flesh, profiteth, nothing: The declarations which, I, have spoken unto you, are, spirit, and, are, life.
And, when forty years were fulfilled, there appeared unto him, in the desert of Mount Sinai, a messenger, in a flame of fire, in a bush.
The same Moses whom they had refused, saying - Who hath appointed thee to be ruler and judge? the same, both as ruler and redeemer, did God send, by the hand of the messenger who had appeared unto him in the bush:
Who, indeed, are Israelites, whose are the sonship, and the glory, and the covenants, and the legislation, and the divine service, and the promises,
Whereas, the righteousness by faith, thus speaketh - Do not say in thy heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? That is, to bring, Christ, down,
Why, then, the law? Because of the transgressions, it was added, until such time as the seed should come, unto whom the promise had been made, and was given in charge through messengers, at the hand of a mediator;
For, if the word through messengers spoken became firm, and, every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense,
For, living, is the word of God, and, energetic, and more cutting than any knife with two edges, and penetrating as far as a dividing asunder of soul and spirit, of joints also, and marrow, and able to judge the impulses and designs of the heart;
