These, are the testimonies, and the statutes and the regulations, - which Moses spake unto the sons of Israel when they came forth out of Egypt:
Now, therefore, O Israel, hearken thou unto the statutes, and unto the regulations, which, I, am teaching you, to do them , - to the end ye may live and enter and possess the land, which, Yahweh, the God of your fathers, is giving unto you.
Ye shall, keep, the commandments of Yahweh your God and his testimonies and his statutes which he hath commanded thee;
When thy son shall ask thee in time to come, saying, - What mean the testimonies and the statutes and the regulations, which Yahweh our God commanded you?
and keep the observances of Yahweh thy God, by walking in his ways, by keeping his statutes, his commandments, and his regulations and his testimonies, as written in the law of Moses, - to the end thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself;
I will thank thee with uprightness of heart, when I have learned thy righteous regulations.
In the way of thy testimonies, have I rejoiced, Like as over all riches.
Roll from off me, reproach and contempt, For, thy testimonies, have I observed.
Yea, thy testimonies, are my dear delight, My counsellors.
As an inheritance have I taken thy testimonies unto times age-abiding, for, the joy of my heart, they are.
