Deuteronomy 6:1-Deuteronomy 11:32 - Detailed Stipulations

1 And these the commands and the laws and the judgments that Jehovah you God commanded to teach you to do in the land. which ye are passing over there to possess it: 2 So that thou shalt fear Jehovah thy God, to watch all his laws and his commands which I am commanding thee, thou and thy son and thy son's son all the days of thy life; and so that thy days shall be prolonged. 3 And hear, O Israel, and watch to do, that it shall be well to thee, and that ye shall multiply greatly as Jehovah the God of your fathers spake to thee, a land flowing with milk and honey.

4 Hear, Israel; Jehovah our God is one Jehovah. 5 And love thou Jehovah thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy might 6 And these words which I command thee to do shall be upon thy heart; 7 And sharpen them to thy sons, and speak in them in thy resting in thy house, and in thy going in the way, and in thy lying down and in thy rising up. 8 And bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be for bands between thine eyes. 9 And write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates.

10 And it was when Jehovah thy God shall bring thee in to the land which he sware to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaak and to Jacob, to give to thee cities great and good which thou didst not build, 11 And houses full of all good which thou filledst not, and wells hewed out which thou hewedst not, and vineyards and olives which thou didst not plant; and thou atest and wert satisfied: 12 Watch to thyself lest thou shalt forget Jehovah who brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servants, 13 Jehovah thy God shalt thou fear, and him shalt thou serve, and in his name shalt thou swear. 14 Ye shall not go after other gods from the gods of the peoples which are round about you; 15 (For Jehovah thy God a jealous God in the midst of thee) lest the anger of Jehovah thy God shall kindle against thee and destroy thee from the face of the earth. 16 Ye shall not try Jehovah your God, as ye tempted in Massah. 17 Watching, ye shall watch the commands of Jehovah your God, and his testimonies, and his laws that he commanded thee. 18 And do thou the right and the good in the eyes of Jehovah so that it shall be well to thee, and thou go in and possess the good land which Jehovah sware to thy fathers, 19 To drive out all thine enemies from before thee as Jehovah spike.

20 When thy son shall ask thee tomorrow, saying, What the testimonies and the laws and the judgments which Jehovah our God commanded you? 21 And say thou to thy son, We were servants to Pharaoh in Egypt, and Jehovah brought us out of Egypt by a strong hand: . 22 And Jehovah will give signs and wonders, great and evil, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his house before our eyes: 23 And he brought us out from there in order to bring us in to give to us the land which he sware to our fathers. 24 And Jehovah will command us to do all these laws, to fear Jehovah our God, for good to us all the days, to preserve us alive as this day. 25 And it shall be justice to us when we shall watch to do all these commands before Jehovah our God as he commanded us.

1 When Jehovah thy God shall bring thee to the, land where thou goest there to possess it, and he cast out many nations from before thee, the Hittite and the Girgashite and the Amorite and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite and the Jebusite, seven nations many and strong above thee; 2 And Jehovah thy God gave them before thee, and thou didst smite them: exterminating, thou shalt exterminate them; thou shalt not make to them a covenant and thou shalt not show them mercy. 3 Thou shall not marry with them; thy daughters thou shalt not give to his son, and his daughter thou shalt not take to thy son. 4 For he will turn away thy son from after me and they served other gods: and the anger of Jehovah kindled against you and he destroyed thee suddenly. 5 But thus shall ye do to them; their altars ye shall destroy, and their pillars ye shall break in pieces, and their statues ye shall cut down, and their carved things ye shall burn in are. 6 For thou a holy people to Jehovah thy God: in thee Jehovah thy God chose to be to him a people of property from all the peoples which are upon the face of the earth.

7 Not for your multitude did Jehovah delight in you above all the peoples, and will he choose you, for ye were few more than all the peoples. 8 For Jehovah loves you and watches the oath which he sware to your fathers: Jehovah brought you out by a strong hand, and he will redeem thee from the house of servants, from the house of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9 And know thou that Jehovah thy God, he is God, the faithful God, watching the covenant and the kindness to those loving him, and to those watching his commands to the thousandth generation: 10 And recompensing to those hating him to their face to destroy him: he will not delay to him hating him to his face; he will recompense to him. 11 And watch thou the commands and the laws and the judgments which I command thee this day, to do them.

12 And it was because ye shall hear these judgments, and watch them and do them, and Jehovah thy God watched to thee the covenant and. the mercy which he sware to thy fathers: 13 And he loved thee and blessed thee, and multiplied thee: and he blest the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy grain and thy new wine and thy new oil, and the young of thy cows and thy flocks of sheep, upon the land which he sware to thy fathers to give to thee. 14 Thou shalt be blessed above all peoples: there shall not be in thee barren male and female, and in thy cattle. 15 And Jehovah turned away from thee all sickness; and all the evil did-eases of Egypt which thou knewest, he will not put upon thee: and he will give them upon all hating thee. 16 And thou didst consume all the peoples which Jehovah thy God gave to thee; thine eye shall not have pity upon them, and thou shalt not serve their gods, for it is a snare to thee.

17 When thou shalt say in thy heart, The nations many more than I, how shall I be able to dispossess them? 18 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: remembering; thou shalt remember what Jehovah thy God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt. 19 The great trials which thine eyes saw, and the signs and the wonders;. and the strong hand and the extended arm by which Jehovah thy God brought thee out: so shall Jehovah thy God do to all people of whose face thou art afraid. 20 And also the hornet, Jehovah thy God will send among you till the destroying Of those being left and of those hiding from thy face. 21 Thou shalt not be terrified from their faces, for Jehovah thy God is in the midst of thee, a great and fearful God. 22 And Jehovah thy God cast out. these nations from thy face, little, little; thou shalt not be able to finish them quickly lest the beast of the field shall multiply upon thee. 23 And Jehovah thy God sire then before thee and destroyed and discomfited them in great consternation till he destroyed them. 24 And he gave their kings into thy hand, and destroy thou their name from under the heavens; and a man shall not stand before thee till thy destroying them. 25 The carved thing of their gods ye shall burn in fire: thou shalt not desire the silver and gold upon them and take to thee lest thou shalt be snared by it, for it is an abomination to Jehovah thy God. 26 And thou shalt not bring an abomination to thy house, and thou be devoted to destruction like it: abhorring, thou shalt abhor it, and abominating, thou shalt abominate it, for it is devoted to destruction.

1 All the commands which I command thee this day ye shall watch to do, so that ye shall live and multiply and go in and possess the land which Jehovah sware to your. fathers. 2 And remember thou all the way which Jehovah thy God caused thee to go this forty years in the desert in order to humble thee, to try thee, to know what is in thy heart, whether thou shalt watch his commands or not 3 And he will humble thee, and cause thee to hunger, and will give thee to eat manna which thou knewest not, and thy fathers knew not; so that he caused thee to know that upon bread only man shall not live, but upon all going out of the mouth of Jehovah shall man live. 4 Thy garments decayed not from thee, and thy feet swelled not this forty years. 5 And know thou with thy heart that as a man will chastise his son, Jehovah thy God chastises thee. 6 And watch thou the commands of Jehovah thy God, to go in his ways and to fear him. 7 For Jehovah thy God brings thee to a good land, a land of torrents of water, fountains, and depths going forth in the valley and in the mountain; 8 A land of wheat and barley and the vine and the fig tree and the pomegranate, a land of the olive tree, of oil and honey; 9 A land where thou shalt eat bread in it not with poverty; thou shalt not want any thing in it; a land whose stones, iron, and out of its mountains thou shalt hew out brass. 10 And thou atest and wert satisfied, and didst bless Jehovah thy God for the good land which he gave to thee.

11 Watch to thyself lest thou shalt forget Jehovah thy God, not watching his commands and his judgments and his laws which I command thee this day: 12 Lest thou shalt eat and thou wert satisfied, and thou wilt build good houses and thou dwelt; 13 And thy cattle and thy sheep shall multiply, and thy silver and thy gold shall multiply to thee, and all which is in thee shall multiply; 14 And thy heart was lifted up and thou didst forget Jehovah thy God bringing thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servants; 15 He causing thee to go in the great and fearful desert, the fiery serpent and the scorpion, and a thirsty land, where is no water: he bringing forth to thee water from the rock of flint; 16 He giving thee to eat manna in the desert which thy fathers knew not, in order to humble thee, and in order to try thee to do thee good in thy lost state: 17 And thou saidst in thy heart, My strength and the bone of my handmade for me this wealth. 18 And remember Jehovah thy God; for he gave to thee strength to make wealth in order to set up his covenant, which he sware to our fathers, as this day. 19 And it was, if forgetting, thou shalt forget Jehovah thy God, and thou wentest after other gods, and served them and worshipped to them, I testified against you this day, that perishing, ye shall perish. 20 As the nations which Jehovah destroys before you, so shall ye be destroyed, because ye will not hear to the voice of Jehovah your God.

1 Hear, Israel: Thou passest this day over Jordan to go to possess nations great and strong above thee; cities great and fortified to the heavens: 2 A people great and high, sons of Anakims, whom thou knewest, and thou heardest, Who shall stand before the sons of Anak? 3 And know thou this day that Jehovah thy God he is passing over before thee; he is a consuming fire, he will destroy them, and he will humble them before thy face, and drive them out and destroy them quickly, as Jehovah spake to thee. 4 Thou shalt not say in thy heart in Jehovah thy God's thrusting them out from before thee, saying, For my justice Jehovah brought me forth to possess this land; and for the injustice of these nations Jehovah dispossessed them from before thee. 5 Not for thy justice and for the straightness of thy heart thou goest in to possess this land, but for the injustice of these nations Jehovah thy God dispossesses them from before thee, and order to lift up the word which he sware to thy fathers, to Abraham and to Isaak and to Jacob. 6 And know thou that not for thy justice did Jehovah thy God five to thee this good land to possess it; for thou a people of a hard neck.

7 Remembering, thou shalt not forget that thou didst provoke Jehovah thy God to anger in the desert: from the day thou didst go out from the land of Egypt till your coming to this place, ye were rebelling against Jehovah. 8 And in Horeb ye provoked Jehovah to anger, and Jehovah will be angry with you to destroy you. 9 In my going up to the mount to take the tables of stone, the tables of the covenant which Jehovah made with you, and I shall dwell in the mountain forty days and forty nights; I ate not bread and I drank not water: 10 And Jehovah will give to me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and upon them according to all the words which Jehovah spake with you in the mountain out of the midst of the fire, in the day of the gathering. 11 And it shall be from the end of forty days and forty nights, Jehovah gave to me the two tables of stone, the tables of the covenant.

12 And Jehovah will say to me, Arise, go from this mountain; for thy people were corrupted which thou broughtest forth from Egypt; they turned aside quickly from the way which thou didst command them; they made to themselves a molten thing. 13 And Jehovah will say to me, saying, I saw this people, and behold, it a people of hard neck: 14 Desist from me and I will destroy them, and I will wipe off their name from under the heavens: and I will make thee into a nation strong and many above them.

15 to And I shall turn and come down from the mount, and the mount burnt with fire: and the two tables of the covenant upon my two hands. 16 And I shall see, and behold, ye sinned against Jehovah your God; ye made to you a molten calf; ye turned aside quickly from the way which Jehovah commanded you. 17 And I shall lay hold upon the two tables and I shall cast them from out of my two hands, and shall break them before your eyes. 18 And I shall fall down before Jehovah as at the first; forty days and forty nights I ate not bread and I drank not water on account of all your sins that ye sinned to do evil in the eyes of Jehovah to provoke him 19 For I was afraid from the face of the anger and emotion with which Jehovah was angry against you to destroy you. And Jehovah will hear to me also in this time. 20 And with Aaron Jehovah was greatly angry to destroy him: and I shall pray also for Aaron in that time. 21 And the sin that ye made, the calf, I took and I shall burn it with fire, and beat it, and grinding small till it was beat small to dust: and I shall cast its dust into the torrent going down from the mount.

22 And in Taberah and in Massah, and in Kibroth Hatavah, ye were provoking Jehovah to anger. 23 And in Jehovah's sending you from Kadesh-Barnea, saying; Go ye up and possess the land which I gave to you: and ye will rebel against the mouth of Jehovah your God, and ye trusted not to him, and ye heard not to his voice. 24 And ye were rebelling against Jehovah from the day I knew you.

25 And I shall fall down before Jehovah forty days and forty nights, as I fell down; for Jehovah said to destroy you. 26 And I shall pray to Jehovah, and say, Lord Jehovah, thou wilt not destroy thy people and thine inheritance which thou didst redeem in thy greatness, whom thou broughtest out of Egypt with a strong hand. 27 Remember thy servants, for Abraham, for Isaak, and for Jacob, thou wilt not look to the stubbornness of this people, and to its wickedness, and to its sin: 28 Lest they of the land where thou broughtest us from there shall say, For Jehovah was not able to bring them in to the land which he spake to them; and for his hating them he brought them out to destroy them in the desert 29 And they are thy people and thine inheritance whom thou broughtest out by thy great strength and by thine extended arm.

1 In that time Jehovah said to me, Hew to thee two tables of stone as the first, and come up to me to the mount, and make to thee an ark of wood.
