Song Of Moses

1 Give ear, O heavens, to my voice; let the earth take note of the words of my mouth:

1 "Give ear, O heavens, and let me speak; And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.

1 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.

1 Pay attention, heavens, and I will speak;listen, earth, to the words of my mouth.(A)

1 Hear, heavens, and I will speak! Listen, earth, to the words of my mouth!

2 My teaching is dropping like rain, coming down like dew on the fields; like rain on the young grass and showers on the garden plants:

2 "Let my teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew, As the droplets on the fresh grass And as the showers on the herb.

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:

2 Let my teaching fall like rainand my word settle like dew,like gentle rain on new grassand showers on tender plants.

2 May my instructions descend like rain and may my words flow like dew, as light rain upon the grass, and as showers upon new plants.

3 For I will give honour to the name of the Lord: let our God be named great.

3 "For I proclaim the name of the LORD; Ascribe greatness to our God!

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

3 For I will proclaim Yahweh’s name.Declare the greatness of our God!

3 For I'll proclaim the name of our LORD. Ascribe greatness to our God!

4 He is the Rock, complete is his work; for all his ways are righteousness: a God without evil who keeps faith, true and upright is he.

4 "The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He.

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.

4 The Rock—His work is perfect;all His ways are entirely just.A faithful God, without prejudice,He is righteous and true.

4 Flawless is the work of the Rock, because all his ways are just. A faithful God never unjust righteous and upright is he.

5 They have become false, they are not his children, the mark of sin is on them; they are an evil and hard-hearted generation.

5 "They have acted corruptly toward Him, They are not His children, because of their defect; But are a perverse and crooked generation.

5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.

5 His people have acted corruptly toward Him;this is their defect(a)—they are not His childrenbut a devious and crooked generation.

5 But those who are not his children acted corruptly against him; they are a defective and perverted generation.

6 Is this your answer to the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? Is he not your father who has given you life? He has made you and given you your place.

6 "Do you thus repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is not He your Father who has bought you? He has made you and established you.

6 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?

6 Is this how you repay the Lord,you foolish and senseless people?Isn’t He your Father and Creator?Didn’t He make you and sustain you?

6 This is not the way to repay the LORD, is it, you foolish and witless people? Is he not your father, who bought you, formed you, and established you?

7 Keep in mind the days of the past, give thought to the years of generations gone by: go to your father and he will make it clear to you, to the old men and they will give you the story.

7 "Remember the days of old, Consider the years of all generations. Ask your father, and he will inform you, Your elders, and they will tell you.

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

7 Remember the days of old;consider the years long past.Ask your father, and he will tell you,your elders, and they will teach you.

7 Remember the days of old, reflect on the years of previous generations. Ask your father, and he'll tell you; your elders will inform you.

8 When the Most High gave the nations their heritage, separating into groups the children of men, he had the limits of the peoples marked out, keeping in mind the number of the children of Israel.

8 "When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, When He separated the sons of man, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the sons of Israel.

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 children of Israel.

8 When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance(b)and divided the human race,(B)He set the boundaries of the peoplesaccording to the number of the people of Israel.(c)

8 When the Most High gave nations as their inheritance, when he separated the human race, he set boundaries for the people according to the number of the children of God.

9 For the Lord's wealth is his people; Jacob is the land of his heritage.

9 "For the LORD'S portion is His people; Jacob is the allotment of His inheritance.

9 For the LORD'S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

9 But the Lord’s portion is His people,Jacob, His own inheritance.

9 For the LORD's portion is his people; Jacob is his allotted portion.

10 He came to him in the waste land, in the unpeopled waste of sand: putting his arms round him and caring for him, he kept him as the light of his eye.

10 "He found him in a desert land, And in the howling waste of a wilderness; He encircled him, He cared for him, He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.

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

10 He found him in a desolate land,in a barren, howling wilderness;He surrounded him, cared for him,and protected him as the pupil of His eye.(C)

10 The LORD found him in a desert land, in a barren, eerie wilderness. He surrounded, cared for, and guarded him as the pupil of his eye.

11 As an eagle, teaching her young to make their flight, with her wings outstretched over them, takes them up on her strong feathers:

11 "Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, That hovers over its young, He spread His wings and caught them, He carried them on His pinions.

11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

11 He watches over(d) His nest like an eagleand hovers over His young;He spreads His wings, catches him,and lifts him up on His pinions.(D)

11 Like an eagle stirs its nest, hovering near its young, spreading out his wings to take him and carry him on his pinions,

12 So the Lord only was his guide, no other god was with him.

12 "The LORD alone guided him, And there was no foreign god with him.

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

12 The Lord alone led him,with no help from a foreign god.(e)

12 the LORD alone guided him. There was no foreign god with him.

13 He put him on the high places of the earth, his food was the increase of the field; honey he gave him out of the rock and oil out of the hard rock;

13 "He made him ride on the high places of the earth, And he ate the produce of the field; And He made him suck honey from the rock, And oil from the flinty rock,

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;

13 He made him ride on the heights of the land(E)and eat the produce of the field.He nourished him with honey from the rockand oil from flint-like rock,

13 He mounted him on a high place above the earth, feeding him from the produce of the field. He nourished him with honey from the rock and with oil from the flint rock,

14 Butter from his cows and milk from his sheep, with fat of lambs and sheep of Bashan, and goats, and the heart of the grain; and for your drink, wine from the blood of the grape.

14 Curds of cows, and milk of the flock, With fat of lambs, And rams, the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the finest of the wheat-- And of the blood of grapes you drank wine.

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 blood of the grape.

14 cream from the herd and milk from the flock,with the fat of lambs,rams from Bashan, and goats,with the choicest grains of wheat;you drank wine from the finest grapes.(f)

14 with curds from cattle and with milk from sheep, with the fat of lambs, with rams from Bashan, with the fat of goats, with the finest of wheat and from the juice of grapes you drank wine.

Israel's Rebellion

15 But Jeshurun became fat and would not be controlled: you have become fat, you are thick and full of food: then he was untrue to the God who made him, giving no honour to the Rock of his salvation.

15 "But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked-- You are grown fat, thick, and sleek-- Then he forsook God who made him, And scorned the Rock of his salvation.

15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

15 Then(g) Jeshurun(h)(F) became fat and rebelled—you became fat, bloated, and gorged.He abandoned the God who made himand scorned the Rock of his salvation.

15 Jacob dined until satisfied; Jeshurun grew fat and kicked. He grew fat, coarse, and gross, so that he abandoned the God who made him and spurned the Rock that was his salvation.

16 The honour which was his they gave to strange gods; by their disgusting ways he was moved to wrath.

16 "They made Him jealous with strange gods; With abominations they provoked Him to anger.

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

16 They provoked His jealousy with foreign gods;they enraged Him with detestable practices.(G)

16 They provoked him to jealousy over foreigners and to anger over detestable things.

17 They made offerings to evil spirits which were not God, to gods who were strange to them, which had newly come up, not feared by your fathers.

17 "They sacrificed to demons who were not God, To gods whom they have not known, New gods who came lately, Whom your fathers did not dread.

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.

17 They sacrificed to demons, not God,to gods they had not known,new gods that had just arrived,which your fathers did not fear.(H)

17 They sacrificed to demons not to the real God gods whom they didn't know, new neighbors who had recently appeared, whom your ancestors never feared.

18 You have no thought for the Rock, your father, you have no memory of the God who gave you birth.

18 "You neglected the Rock who begot you, And forgot the God who gave you birth.

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

18 You ignored the Rock who gave you birth;you forgot the God who gave birth to you.

18 You neglected the Rock that fathered you; you abandoned God, who was awaiting your birth.

A Word Of Judgment

19 And the Lord saw with disgust the evil-doing of his sons and daughters.

19 "The LORD saw this, and spurned them Because of the provocation of His sons and daughters.

19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

19 When the Lord saw this, He despised them,provoked to anger by His sons and daughters.

19 The LORD saw it and became jealous, provoked by his sons and daughters.

20 And he said, My face will be veiled from them, I will see what their end will be: for they are an uncontrolled generation, children in whom is no faith.

20 "Then He said, 'I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end shall be; For they are a perverse generation, Sons in whom is no faithfulness.

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.

20 He said: “I will hide My face from them;I will see what will become of them,for they are a perverse generation—unfaithful children.

20 So he said: "Let me hide my face from them. I will observe what their end will be, because they are a perverted generation, children within whom there is no loyalty.

21 They have given my honour to that which is not God, moving me to wrath with their false worship: I will give their honour to those who are not a people, moving them to wrath by a foolish nation,

21 'They have made Me jealous with what is not God; They have provoked Me to anger with their idols So I will make them jealous with those who are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation,

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

21 They have provoked My jealousywith their so-called gods;(i)they have enraged Me with their worthless idols.So I will provoke their jealousywith an inferior people;(j)I will enrage them with a foolish nation.(I)

21 They provoked me to jealousy over non-gods, and to be angry over their vanity. Now I'll provoke them to jealousy over a non-people; and over a foolish nation I'll provoke them to anger.

22 For my wrath is a flaming fire, burning to the deep parts of the underworld, burning up the earth with her increase, and firing the deep roots of the mountains.

22 For a fire is kindled in My anger, And burns to the lowest part of Sheol, And consumes the earth with its yield, And sets on fire the foundations of the mountains.

22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

22 For fire has been kindled because of My angerand burns to the depths of Sheol;it devours the land and its produce,and scorches the foundations of the mountains.

22 For a fire breaks out in my anger burning to the deepest part of the afterlife, consuming the earth and its produce and igniting the foundations of the mountains.

23 I will send a rain of troubles on them, my arrows will be showered on them.

23 'I will heap misfortunes on them; I will use My arrows on them.

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

23 “I will pile disasters on them;I will use up My arrows against them.

23 I'll bury them in misfortunes and bring them to an end with my arrows.

24 They will be wasted from need of food, and overcome by burning heat and bitter destruction; and the teeth of beasts I will send on them, with the poison of the worms of the dust.

24 'They will be wasted by famine, and consumed by plague And bitter destruction; And the teeth of beasts I will send upon them, With the venom of crawling things of the dust.

24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

24 They will be weak from hunger,ravaged by pestilence and bitter plague;I will unleash on them wild beasts with fangs,as well as venomous snakes that slither in the dust.

24 Emaciated from famine, feverish from plague, and destroyed by bitterness, I'll send fanged beasts against them, along with poisonous snakes that glide through the dust.

25 Outside they will be cut off by the sword, and in the inner rooms by fear; death will take the young man and the virgin, the baby at the breast and the grey-haired man.

25 'Outside the sword will bereave, And inside terror-- Both young man and virgin, The nursling with the man of gray hair.

25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.

25 Outside, the sword will take their children,and inside, there will be terror;the young man and the young woman will be killed,the infant and the gray-haired man.(J)

25 Outside, the sword will cause bereavement; within, there will be terror for the young man and virgin alike, also for the nursing infant and the aged man."

The Weakness Of Other Gods

26 I said I would send them wandering far away, I would make all memory of them go from the minds of men:

26 'I would have said, "I will cut them to pieces, I will remove the memory of them from men,"

26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:

26 “I would have said: I will cut them to pieces(k)and blot out the memory of them from mankind,

26 "I said, "I will scatter them, erasing their memory from the human race,

27 But for the fear that their haters, uplifted in their pride, might say, Our hand is strong, the Lord has not done all this.

27 Had I not feared the provocation by the enemy, That their adversaries would misjudge, That they would say, "Our hand is triumphant, And the LORD has not done all this."'

27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this.

27 if I had not feared insult from the enemy,or feared that these foes might misunderstandand say: ‘Our own hand has prevailed;it wasn’t the Lord who did all this.’”

27 if it weren't for dreading the taunting of their enemies otherwise, their adversary might misinterpret and say, "Our power is great. It isn't the LORD who made all of this happen."'"

28 For they are a nation without wisdom; there is no sense in them.

28 "For they are a nation lacking in counsel, And there is no understanding in them.

28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.

28 Israel is a nation lacking sensewith no understanding at all.(l)

28 They are a nation devoid of purpose and without insight.

29 If only they were wise, if only this was clear to them, and they would give thought to their future!

29 "Would that they were wise, that they understood this, That they would discern their future!

29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

29 If only they were wise, they would figure it out;they would understand their fate.

29 O, that they were wise to understand this and consider their future!

30 How would it be possible for one to overcome a thousand, and two to send ten thousand in flight, if their rock had not let them go, if the Lord had not given them up?

30 "How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had given them up?

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?

30 How could one man pursue a thousand,or two put ten thousand to flight,unless their Rock had sold them,unless the Lord had given them up?

30 How can one person chase a thousand of them and two put a myriad to flight, unless their Rock delivers them and the LORD gives them up?

31 For their rock is not like our Rock, even our haters themselves being judges.

31 "Indeed their rock is not like our Rock, Even our enemies themselves judge this.

31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

31 But their “rock” is not like our Rock;even our enemies concede.

31 For their rock isn't like our Rock, as even our enemies admit.

32 For their vine is the vine of Sodom, from the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are the grapes of evil, and the berries are bitter:

32 "For their vine is from the vine of Sodom, And from the fields of Gomorrah; Their grapes are grapes of poison, Their clusters, bitter.

32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

32 For their vine is from the vine of Sodomand from the fields of Gomorrah.Their grapes are poisonous;their clusters are bitter.

32 Instead, their vine is from the vines of Sodom and the vineyards of Gomorrah. Their grapes are poisonous, their clusters bitter.

33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, the cruel poison of snakes.

33 "Their wine is the venom of serpents, And the deadly poison of cobras.

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

33 Their wine is serpents’ venom,the deadly poison of cobras.

33 Their wine is the venom of serpents, a poisonous cobra.

34 Is not this among my secrets, kept safe in my store-house?

34 'Is it not laid up in store with Me, Sealed up in My treasuries?

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

34 “Is it not stored up with Me,sealed up in My vaults?

34 "Is this not kept in reserve, sealed up with me in my treasury?

35 Punishment is mine and reward, at the time of the slipping of their feet: for the day of their downfall is near, sudden will be their fate.

35 'Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip; For the day of their calamity is near, And the impending things are hastening upon them.'

35 To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; 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.

35 Vengeance(m) belongs to Me; I will repay.(n)(K)In time their foot will slip,for their day of disaster is near,and their doom is coming quickly.”

35 To me belong vengeance and recompense. In due time their feet will slip, because their time of calamity is near and the things prepared for them draw near.

36 For the Lord will be judge of his people, he will have pity for his servants; when he sees that their power is gone, there is no one, shut up or free.

36 "For the LORD will vindicate His people, And will have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their strength is gone, And there is none remaining, bond or free.

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

36 The Lord will indeed vindicate His peopleand have compassion on His servants(L)when He sees that their strength is goneand no one is left—slave or free.

36 For the LORD will vindicate his people and bring comfort to his servants, because he will observe that their power has waned, when neither prisoner nor free person remain.

37 And he will say, Where are their gods, the rock in which they put their faith?

37 "And He will say, 'Where are their gods, The rock in which they sought refuge?

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

37 He will say: “Where are their gods,the ‘rock’ they found refuge in?

37 "He will say, "Where are their gods, the rock in which they took refuge?

38 Who took the fat of their offerings, and the wine of their drink offering? Let them now come to your help, let them be your salvation.

38 'Who ate the fat of their sacrifices, And drank the wine of their drink offering? Let them rise up and help you, Let them be your hiding place!

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

38 Who ate the fat of their sacrificesand drank the wine of their drink offerings?Let them rise up and help you;let it(o) be a shelter for you.

38 Who ate the fat of their offerings and drank the wine that was their drink offering? Let them rise and help you and be your hiding place!'

The Vindication Of The Lord

39 See now, I myself am he; there is no other god but me: giver of death and life, wounding and making well: and no one has power to make you free from my hand.

39 'See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life I have wounded and it is I who heal, And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.

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.

39 See now that I alone am He;there is no God but Me.(M)I bring death and I give life;I wound and I heal.No one can rescue anyone from My hand.(N)

39 "Look now! I AM, and there is no other god besides me. I myself cause death and I sustain life; I wound severely and I also heal; from my power no one can deliver.

40 For lifting up my hand to heaven I say, By my unending life,

40 'Indeed, I lift up My hand to heaven, And say, as I live forever,

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

40 I raise My hand to heaven and declare:As surely as I live forever,

40 "I solemnly swear to heaven I say "As certainly as I'm alive and living forever,

41 If I make sharp my shining sword, and my hand is outstretched for judging, I will give punishment to those who are against me, and their right reward to my haters.

41 If I sharpen My flashing sword, And My hand takes hold on justice, I will render vengeance on My adversaries, And I will repay those who hate Me.

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.

41 when I sharpen My flashing sword,and My hand takes hold of judgment,I will take vengeance on My adversariesand repay those who hate Me.

41 I'll whet my shining sword, with my hands in firm grasp of judgment. I'll show vengeance on my adversary and repay those who keep on hating me.

42 I will make my arrows red with blood, my sword will be feasting on flesh, with the blood of the dead and the prisoners, of the long-haired heads of my haters.

42 'I will make My arrows drunk with blood, And My sword will devour flesh, With the blood of the slain and the captives, From the long-haired leaders of the enemy.'

42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.

42 I will make My arrows drunk with bloodwhile My sword devours flesh—the blood of the slain and the captives,the heads of the enemy leaders.”(p)

42 I'll make my arrows drunk with blood. My sword will devour flesh, along with the blood of the slain, and I'll take their enemy leaders captive.'

43 Be glad, O you his people, over the nations; for he will take payment for the blood of his servants, and will give punishment to his haters, and take away the sin of his land, for his people.

43 "Rejoice, O nations, with His people; For He will avenge the blood of His servants, And will render vengeance on His adversaries, And will atone for His land and His people."

43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

43 Rejoice, you nations, concerning His people,(q)(O)for He will avenge the blood of His servants.(r)He will take vengeance on His adversaries;(s)(P)He will purify His land and His people.(t)

43 "Sing for joy, nations! Sing for joy, people who belong to him! For he'll avenge the blood of his servants, turn on his adversary, and cleanse both his land and his people."

Moses Is Allowed To See Canaan

44 So Moses said all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and Hoshea, the son of Nun.

44 Then Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he, with Joshua the son of Nun.

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

44 Moses came with Joshua(u) son of Nun and recited all the words of this song in the presence of the people.

44 So Moses and Nun's son Joshua came and recited all the words of this song while the people were assembled.

Moses' Final Instructions

45 And after saying all this to the people,

45 When Moses had finished speaking all these words to all Israel,

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

45 After Moses finished reciting all these words to all Israel,

45 When Moses had finished addressing all of these words to all Israel,

46 Moses said to them, Let the words which I have said to you today go deep into your hearts, and give orders to your children to do every word of this law.

46 he said to them, "Take to your heart all the words with which I am warning you today, which you shall command your sons to observe carefully, even all the words of this law.

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.

46 he said to them, “Take to heart all these words I am giving as a warning to you today, so that you may command your children to carefully follow all the words of this law.

46 he told them, "Take to heart my entire testimony against you today. Command your children to observe carefully every word of this Law,

47 And this is no small thing for you, but it is your life, and through this you may make your days long in the land which you are going over Jordan to take for your heritage.

47 "For it is not an idle word for you; indeed it is your life And by this word you will prolong your days in the land, which you are about to cross the Jordan to possess."

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

47 For they are not meaningless words to you but they are your life, and by them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.”

47 because they're not just empty words for you they are your very life. Through these instructions you will live long in the land that you are about to cross over the Jordan River to possess."

Instructions Concerning Moses' Death

48 That same day the Lord said to Moses,

48 The LORD spoke to Moses that very same day, saying,

48 And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,

48 On that same day the Lord spoke to Moses,(Q)

48 Later that day, the LORD told Moses,

49 Go up into this mountain of Abarim, to Mount Nebo in the land of Moab opposite Jericho; there you may see the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel for their heritage:

49 "Go up to this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab opposite Jericho, and look at the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the sons of Israel for a possession.

49 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:

49 “Go up Mount Nebo in the Abarim range in the land of Moab, across from Jericho, and view the land of Canaan I am giving the Israelites as a possession.

49 "Ascend this Abarim mountain range toward Mount Nebo in the land of Moab across from Jericho, and look out over the land of Canaan that I'm about to give to the Israelis as a possession.

50 And let death come to you on the mountain where you are going, and be put to rest with your people; as death came to Aaron, your brother, on Mount Hor, where he was put to rest with his people:

50 "Then die on the mountain where you ascend, and be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people,

50 And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:

50 Then you will die on the mountain that you go up, and you will be gathered to your people, just as your brother Aaron died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people.(R)

50 You will die on the mountain that you are about to ascend and be taken to be with your ancestors, just as your brother Aaron died on Mount Hor and was taken to be with his ancestors.

51 Because of your sin against me before the children of Israel at the waters of Meribath Kadesh in the waste land of Zin; because you did not keep my name holy among the children of Israel.

51 because you broke faith with Me in the midst of the sons of Israel at the waters of Meribah-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin, because you did not treat Me as holy in the midst of the sons of Israel.

51 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of MeribahKadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.

51 For both of you broke faith with Me among the Israelites at the waters of Meribath-kadesh in the Wilderness of Zin by failing to treat Me as holy in their presence.

51 Both of you acted unfaithfully against me among the Israelis at Meribah-kadesh in the desert of Zin, when you failed to uphold my holiness among the Israelis.

52 So you will see the land before you, but you will not go into the land which I am giving to the children of Israel.

52 "For you shall see the land at a distance, but you shall not go there, into the land which I am giving the sons of Israel."

52 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.

52 Although from a distance you will view the land that I am giving the Israelites, you will not go there.”(S)

52 You'll see the land from a distance, but you won't be able to enter the land that I am about to give to the Israelis."
