Deuteronomy 4


1  Now6258 therefore hearken,8085 O Israel,3478 unto413 the statutes2706 and unto413 the judgments,4941 which834 I595 teach3925 you, for to do6213 them, that4616 ye may live,2421 and go in935 and possess3423 853 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 God430 of your fathers1 giveth5414 you.

2  Ye shall not3808 add3254 unto5921 the word1697 which834 I595 command6680 you, neither3808 shall ye diminish1639 aught from4480 it, that ye may keep8104 853 the commandments4687 of the LORD3068 your God430 which834 I595 command6680 you.

3  Your eyes5869 have seen7200 853 what834 the LORD3068 did6213 because of Baal-peor:1187 for3588 all3605 the men376 that834 followed1980 310 Baal-peor,1187 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath destroyed8045 them from among4480 7130 you.

4  But ye859 that did cleave1695 unto the LORD3068 your God430 are alive2416 every one3605 of you this day.3117

5  Behold,7200 I have taught3925 you statutes2706 and judgments,4941 even as834 the LORD3068 my God430 commanded6680 me, that ye should do6213 so3651 in7130 the land776 whither834 8033 ye859 go935 to possess3423 it.

6  Keep8104 therefore and do6213 them; for3588 this1931 is your wisdom2451 and your understanding998 in the sight5869 of the nations,5971 which834 shall hear8085 853 all3605 these428 statutes,2706 and say,559 Surely7535 this2088 great1419 nation1471 is a wise2450 and understanding995 people.5971

7  For3588 what4310 nation1471 is there so great,1419 who834 hath God430 so nigh7138 unto413 them, as the LORD3068 our God430 is in all3605 things that we call7121 upon413 him for?

8  And what4310 nation1471 is there so great,1419 that834 hath statutes2706 and judgments4941 so righteous6662 as all3605 this2063 law,8451 which834 I595 set5414 before6440 you this day?3117

9  Only7535 take heed8104 to thyself, and keep8104 thy soul5315 diligently,3966 lest6435 thou forget7911 853 the things1697 which834 thine eyes5869 have seen,7200 and lest6435 they depart5493 from thy heart4480 3824 all3605 the days3117 of thy life:2416 but teach3045 them thy sons,1121 and thy sons'1121 sons;1121

10  Especially the day3117 that834 thou stoodest5975 before6440 the LORD3068 thy God430 in Horeb,2722 when the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Gather me the people together,6950 853 5971 and I will make them hear8085 853 my words,1697 that834 they may learn3925 to fear3372 me all3605 the days3117 that834 they1992 shall live2416 upon5921 the earth,127 and that they may teach3925 their children.1121

11  And ye came near7126 and stood5975 under8478 the mountain;2022 and the mountain2022 burned1197 with fire784 unto5704 the midst3820 of heaven,8064 with darkness,6205 clouds,6051 and thick darkness.6205

12  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 you out of the midst4480 8432 of the fire:784 ye859 heard8085 the voice6963 of the words,1697 but saw7200 no369 similitude;8544 only2108 ye heard a voice.6963

13  And he declared5046 unto you 853 his covenant,1285 which834 he commanded6680 you to perform,6213 even ten6235 commandments;1697 and he wrote3789 them upon5921 two8147 tables3871 of stone.68

14  And the LORD3068 commanded6680 me at that1931 time6256 to teach3925 you statutes2706 and judgments,4941 that ye might do6213 them in the land776 whither834 8033 ye859 go over5674 to possess3423 it.

15  Take ye therefore good heed8104 3966 unto yourselves;5315 for3588 ye saw7200 no3808 manner3605 of similitude8544 on the day3117 that the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 you in Horeb2722 out of the midst4480 8432 of the fire:784

16  Lest6435 ye corrupt7843 yourselves, and make6213 you a graven image,6459 the similitude8544 of any3605 figure,5566 the likeness8403 of male2145 or176 female,5347

17  The likeness8403 of any3605 beast929 that834 is on the earth,776 the likeness8403 of any3605 winged3671 fowl6833 that834 flieth5774 in the air,8064

18  The likeness8403 of any thing3605 that creepeth7430 on the ground,127 the likeness8403 of any3605 fish1710 that834 is in the waters4325 beneath4480 8478 the earth:776

19  And lest6435 thou lift up5375 thine eyes5869 unto heaven,8064 and when thou seest7200 853 the sun,8121 and the moon,3394 and the stars,3556 even all3605 the host6635 of heaven,8064 shouldest be driven5080 to worship7812 them, and serve5647 them, which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath divided2505 853 unto all3605 nations5971 under8478 the whole3605 heaven.8064

20  But the LORD3068 hath taken3947 you, and brought you forth3318 853 out of the iron1270 furnace,4480 3564 even out of Egypt,4480 4714 to be1961 unto him a people5971 of inheritance,5159 as ye are this2088 day.3117

21  Furthermore the LORD3068 was angry599 with me for your sakes,5921 1697 and swore7650 that I should not1115 go over5674 853 Jordan,3383 and that I should not1115 go in935 unto413 that good2896 land,776 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 giveth5414 thee for an inheritance:5159

22  But3588 I595 must die4191 in this2063 land,776 I must not369 go over5674 853 Jordan:3383 but ye859 shall go over,5674 and possess3423 853 that2063 good2896 land.776

23  Take heed8104 unto yourselves, lest6435 ye forget7911 853 the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 your God,430 which834 he made3772 with5973 you, and make6213 you a graven image,6459 or the likeness8544 of any3605 thing, which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath forbidden6680 thee.

24  For3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 is a consuming398 fire,784 even a jealous7067 God.410

25  When3588 thou shalt beget3205 children,1121 and children's1121 children,1121 and ye shall have remained long3462 in the land,776 and shall corrupt7843 yourselves, and make6213 a graven image,6459 or the likeness8544 of any3605 thing, and shall do6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD3068 thy God,430 to provoke him to anger:3707

26  I call5749 853 heaven8064 and earth776 to witness5749 against you this day,3117 that3588 ye shall soon4118 utterly perish6 6 from off4480 5921 the land776 whereunto834 8033 ye859 go over5674 853 Jordan3383 to possess3423 it; ye shall not3808 prolong748 your days3117 upon5921 it, but3588 shall utterly be destroyed.8045 8045

27  And the LORD3068 shall scatter6327 you among the nations,5971 and ye shall be left7604 few4962 in number4557 among the heathen,1471 whither834 8033 the LORD3068 shall lead5090 you.

28  And there8033 ye shall serve5647 gods,430 the work4639 of men's120 hands,3027 wood6086 and stone,68 which834 neither3808 see,7200 nor3808 hear,8085 nor3808 eat,398 nor3808 smell.7306

29  But if from thence4480 8033 thou shalt seek1245 853 the LORD3068 thy God,430 thou shalt find4672 him, if3588 thou seek1875 him with all3605 thy heart3824 and with all3605 thy soul.5315

30  When thou art in tribulation,6862 and all3605 these428 things1697 are come4672 upon thee, even in the latter319 days,3117 if thou turn7725 to5704 the LORD3068 thy God,430 and shalt be obedient8085 unto his voice;6963

31  (For3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 is a merciful7349 God;) 410 he will not3808 forsake7503 thee, neither3808 destroy7843 thee, nor3808 forget7911 853 the covenant1285 of thy fathers1 which834 he swore7650 unto them.

32  For3588 ask7592 now4994 of the days3117 that are past,7223 which834 were1961 before6440 thee, since4480 the day3117 that834 God430 created1254 man120 upon5921 the earth,776 and ask from the one side4480 7097 of heaven8064 unto5704 the other,7097 8064 whether there hath been1961 any such thing as this2088 great1419 thing1697 is, or176 hath been heard8085 like it?3644

33  Did ever people5971 hear8085 the voice6963 of God430 speaking1696 out of the midst4480 8432 of the fire,784 as834 thou859 hast heard,8085 and live?2421

34  Or176 hath God430 attempted5254 to go935 and take3947 him a nation1471 from the midst4480 7130 of another nation,1471 by temptations,4531 by signs,226 and by wonders,4159 and by war,4421 and by a mighty2389 hand,3027 and by a stretched out5186 arm,2220 and by great1419 terrors,4172 according to all3605 that834 the LORD3068 your God430 did6213 for you in Egypt4714 before your eyes?5869

35  Unto thee859 it was showed,7200 that thou mightest know3045 that3588 the LORD3068 he1931 is God;430 there is none369 else5750 beside4480 905 him.

36  Out of4480 heaven8064 he made thee to hear8085 853 his voice,6963 that he might instruct3256 thee: and upon5921 earth776 he showed7200 thee 853 his great1419 fire;784 and thou heardest8085 his words1697 out of the midst4480 8432 of the fire.784

37  And because8478 3588 he loved157 853 thy fathers,1 therefore he chose977 their seed2233 after310 them, and brought thee out3318 in his sight6440 with his mighty1419 power3581 out of Egypt;4480 4714

38  To drive out3423 nations1471 from before4480 6440 thee greater1419 and mightier6099 than4480 thou art, to bring thee in,935 to give5414 thee 853 their land776 for an inheritance,5159 as it is this2088 day.3117

39  Know3045 therefore this day,3117 and consider7725 it in413 thine heart,3824 that3588 the LORD3068 he1931 is God430 in heaven8064 above,4480 4605 and upon5921 the earth776 beneath:4480 8478 there is none369 else.5750

40  Thou shalt keep8104 therefore 853 his statutes,2706 and his commandments,4687 which834 I595 command6680 thee this day,3117 that834 it may go well3190 with thee, and with thy children1121 after310 thee, and that4616 thou mayest prolong748 thy days3117 upon5921 the earth,127 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 giveth5414 thee, forever.3605 3117

41  Then227 Moses4872 severed914 three7969 cities5892 on this side5676 Jordan3383 toward the sunrising;4217 8121

42  That the slayer7523 might flee5127 thither,8033 which834 should kill7523 853 his neighbor7453 unawares,1097 1847 and hated8130 him not3808 in times past;4480 8543 8032 and that fleeing5127 unto413 one259 of4480 these411 cities5892 he might live:2425

43  Namely, 853 Bezer1221 in the wilderness,4057 in the plain4334 country,776 of the Reubenites;7206 and Ramoth7216 in Gilead,1568 of the Gadites;1425 and Golan1474 in Bashan,1316 of the Manassites.4520

44  And this2063 is the law8451 which834 Moses4872 set7760 before6440 the children1121 of Israel:3478

45  These428 are the testimonies,5713 and the statutes,2706 and the judgments,4941 which834 Moses4872 spoke1696 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 after they came forth3318 out of Egypt,4480 4714

46  On this side5676 Jordan,3383 in the valley1516 over against4136 Beth-peor,1047 in the land776 of Sihon5511 king4428 of the Amorites,567 who834 dwelt3427 at Heshbon,2809 whom834 Moses4872 and the children1121 of Israel3478 smote,5221 after they were come forth3318 out of Egypt:4480 4714

47  And they possessed3423 853 his land,776 and the land776 of Og5747 king4428 of Bashan,1316 two8147 kings4428 of the Amorites,567 which834 were on this side5676 Jordan3383 toward the sunrising;4217 8121

48  From Aroer,4480 6177 which834 is by5921 the bank8193 of the river5158 Arnon,769 even unto5704 mount2022 Zion,7865 which1931 is Hermon,2768

49  And all3605 the plain6160 on this side5676 Jordan3383 eastward,4217 even unto5704 the sea3220 of the plain,6160 under8478 the springs794 of Pisgah.6449


1 καὶ νῦν Ισραηλ ἄκουε τῶν δικαιωμάτων καὶ τῶν κριμάτων ὅσα ἐγὼ διδάσκω ὑμᾶς σήμερον ποιεῖν ἵνα ζῆτε καὶ πολυπλασιασθῆτε καὶ εἰσελθόντες κληρονομήσητε τὴν γῆν ἣν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν δίδωσιν ὑμῖν

2 οὐ προσθήσετε πρὸς τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν καὶ οὐκ ἀφελεῖτε ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ φυλάσσεσθε τὰς ἐντολὰς κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον

3 οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ὑμῶν ἑωράκασιν πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν τῷ Βεελφεγωρ ὅτι πᾶς ἄνθρωπος ὅστις ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω Βεελφεγωρ ἐξέτριψεν αὐτὸν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐξ ὑμῶν

4 ὑμεῖς δὲ οἱ προσκείμενοι κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν ζῆτε πάντες ἐν τῇ σήμερον

5 ἴδετε δέδειχα ὑμῖν δικαιώματα καὶ κρίσεις καθὰ ἐνετείλατό μοι κύριος ποιῆσαι οὕτως ἐν τῇ γῇ εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς εἰσπορεύεσθε ἐκεῖ κληρονομεῖν αὐτήν

6 καὶ φυλάξεσθε καὶ ποιήσετε ὅτι αὕτη ἡ σοφία ὑμῶν καὶ ἡ σύνεσις ἐναντίον πάντων τῶν ἐθνῶν ὅσοι ἐὰν ἀκούσωσιν πάντα τὰ δικαιώματα ταῦτα καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἰδοὺ λαὸς σοφὸς καὶ ἐπιστήμων τὸ ἔθνος τὸ μέγα τοῦτο

7 ὅτι ποῖον ἔθνος μέγα ᾧ ἐστιν αὐτῷ θεὸς ἐγγίζων αὐτοῖς ὡς κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἐὰν αὐτὸν ἐπικαλεσώμεθα

8 καὶ ποῖον ἔθνος μέγα ᾧ ἐστιν αὐτῷ δικαιώματα καὶ κρίματα δίκαια κατὰ πάντα τὸν νόμον τοῦτον ὃν ἐγὼ δίδωμι ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν σήμερον

9 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ καὶ φύλαξον τὴν ψυχήν σου σφόδρα μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ πάντας τοὺς λόγους οὓς ἑωράκασιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου καὶ μὴ ἀποστήτωσαν ἀπὸ τῆς καρδίας σου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου καὶ συμβιβάσεις τοὺς υἱούς σου καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν υἱῶν σου

10 ἡμέραν ἣν ἔστητε ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ἐν Χωρηβ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῆς ἐκκλησίας ὅτε εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἐκκλησίασον πρός με τὸν λαόν καὶ ἀκουσάτωσαν τὰ ῥήματά μου ὅπως μάθωσιν φοβεῖσθαί με πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἃς αὐτοὶ ζῶσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν διδάξωσιν

11 καὶ προσήλθετε καὶ ἔστητε ὑπὸ τὸ ὄρος καὶ τὸ ὄρος ἐκαίετο πυρὶ ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ σκότος γνόφος θύελλα φωνὴ μεγάλη

12 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός φωνὴν ῥημάτων ὑμεῖς ἠκούσατε καὶ ὁμοίωμα οὐκ εἴδετε ἀλλ᾽ ἢ φωνήν

13 καὶ ἀνήγγειλεν ὑμῖν τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ ἣν ἐνετείλατο ὑμῖν ποιεῖν τὰ δέκα ῥήματα καὶ ἔγραψεν αὐτὰ ἐπὶ δύο πλάκας λιθίνας

14 καὶ ἐμοὶ ἐνετείλατο κύριος ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ διδάξαι ὑμᾶς δικαιώματα καὶ κρίσεις ποιεῖν αὐτὰ ὑμᾶς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς εἰσπορεύεσθε ἐκεῖ κληρονομεῖν αὐτήν

15 καὶ φυλάξεσθε σφόδρα τὰς ψυχὰς ὑμῶν ὅτι οὐκ εἴδετε ὁμοίωμα ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν Χωρηβ ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός

16 μὴ ἀνομήσητε καὶ ποιήσητε ὑμῖν ἑαυτοῖς γλυπτὸν ὁμοίωμα πᾶσαν εἰκόνα ὁμοίωμα ἀρσενικοῦ ἢ θηλυκοῦ

17 ὁμοίωμα παντὸς κτήνους τῶν ὄντων ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὁμοίωμα παντὸς ὀρνέου πτερωτοῦ ὃ πέταται ὑπὸ τὸν οὐρανόν

18 ὁμοίωμα παντὸς ἑρπετοῦ ὃ ἕρπει ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ὁμοίωμα παντὸς ἰχθύος ὅσα ἐστὶν ἐν τοῖς ὕδασιν ὑποκάτω τῆς γῆς

19 καὶ μὴ ἀναβλέψας εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἰδὼν τὸν ἥλιον καὶ τὴν σελήνην καὶ τοὺς ἀστέρας καὶ πάντα τὸν κόσμον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ πλανηθεὶς προσκυνήσῃς αὐτοῖς καὶ λατρεύσῃς αὐτοῖς ἃ ἀπένειμεν κύριος ὁ θεός σου αὐτὰ πᾶσιν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν τοῖς ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ

20 ὑμᾶς δὲ ἔλαβεν ὁ θεὸς καὶ ἐξήγαγεν ὑμᾶς ἐκ τῆς καμίνου τῆς σιδηρᾶς ἐξ Αἰγύπτου εἶναι αὐτῷ λαὸν ἔγκληρον ὡς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ

21 καὶ κύριος ἐθυμώθη μοι περὶ τῶν λεγομένων ὑφ᾽ ὑμῶν καὶ ὤμοσεν ἵνα μὴ διαβῶ τὸν Ιορδάνην τοῦτον καὶ ἵνα μὴ εἰσέλθω εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν κύριος ὁ θεὸς δίδωσίν σοι ἐν κλήρῳ

22 ἐγὼ γὰρ ἀποθνῄσκω ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ οὐ διαβαίνω τὸν Ιορδάνην τοῦτον ὑμεῖς δὲ διαβαίνετε καὶ κληρονομήσετε τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην

23 προσέχετε ὑμεῖς μὴ ἐπιλάθησθε τὴν διαθήκην κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ἣν διέθετο πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ ποιήσητε ὑμῖν ἑαυτοῖς γλυπτὸν ὁμοίωμα πάντων ὧν συνέταξεν κύριος ὁ θεός σου

24 ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεός σου πῦρ καταναλίσκον ἐστίν θεὸς ζηλωτής

25 ἐὰν δὲ γεννήσῃς υἱοὺς καὶ υἱοὺς τῶν υἱῶν σου καὶ χρονίσητε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνομήσητε καὶ ποιήσητε γλυπτὸν ὁμοίωμα παντὸς καὶ ποιήσητε τὰ πονηρὰ ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν παροργίσαι αὐτόν

26 διαμαρτύρομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον τόν τε οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν ὅτι ἀπωλείᾳ ἀπολεῖσθε ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς διαβαίνετε τὸν Ιορδάνην ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτήν οὐχὶ πολυχρονιεῖτε ἡμέρας ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐκτριβῇ ἐκτριβήσεσθε

27 καὶ διασπερεῖ κύριος ὑμᾶς ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν καὶ καταλειφθήσεσθε ὀλίγοι ἀριθμῷ ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν εἰς οὓς εἰσάξει κύριος ὑμᾶς ἐκεῖ

28 καὶ λατρεύσετε ἐκεῖ θεοῖς ἑτέροις ἔργοις χειρῶν ἀνθρώπων ξύλοις καὶ λίθοις οἳ οὐκ ὄψονται οὐδὲ μὴ ἀκούσωσιν οὔτε μὴ φάγωσιν οὔτε μὴ ὀσφρανθῶσιν

29 καὶ ζητήσετε ἐκεῖ κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν καὶ εὑρήσετε ὅταν ἐκζητήσητε αὐτὸν ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας σου καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς σου ἐν τῇ θλίψει σου

30 καὶ εὑρήσουσίν σε πάντες οἱ λόγοι οὗτοι ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτῳ τῶν ἡμερῶν καὶ ἐπιστραφήσῃ πρὸς κύριον τὸν θεόν σου καὶ εἰσακούσῃ τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ

31 ὅτι θεὸς οἰκτίρμων κύριος ὁ θεός σου οὐκ ἐγκαταλείψει σε οὐδὲ μὴ ἐκτρίψει σε οὐκ ἐπιλήσεται τὴν διαθήκην τῶν πατέρων σου ἣν ὤμοσεν αὐτοῖς

32 ἐπερωτήσατε ἡμέρας προτέρας τὰς γενομένας προτέρας σου ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἔκτισεν ὁ θεὸς ἄνθρωπον ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἕως ἄκρου τοῦ οὐρανοῦ εἰ γέγονεν κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα τὸ μέγα τοῦτο εἰ ἤκουσται τοιοῦτο

33 εἰ ἀκήκοεν ἔθνος φωνὴν θεοῦ ζῶντος λαλοῦντος ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός ὃν τρόπον ἀκήκοας σὺ καὶ ἔζησας

34 εἰ ἐπείρασεν ὁ θεὸς εἰσελθὼν λαβεῖν ἑαυτῷ ἔθνος ἐκ μέσου ἔθνους ἐν πειρασμῷ καὶ ἐν σημείοις καὶ ἐν τέρασιν καὶ ἐν πολέμῳ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ καὶ ἐν ὁράμασιν μεγάλοις κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ἐνώπιόν σου βλέποντος

35 ὥστε εἰδῆσαί σε ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεός σου οὗτος θεός ἐστιν καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν αὐτοῦ

36 ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἀκουστὴ ἐγένετο ἡ φωνὴ αὐτοῦ παιδεῦσαί σε καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἔδειξέν σοι τὸ πῦρ αὐτοῦ τὸ μέγα καὶ τὰ ῥήματα αὐτοῦ ἤκουσας ἐκ μέσου τοῦ πυρός

37 διὰ τὸ ἀγαπῆσαι αὐτὸν τοὺς πατέρας σου καὶ ἐξελέξατο τὸ σπέρμα αὐτῶν μετ᾽ αὐτοὺς ὑμᾶς καὶ ἐξήγαγέν σε αὐτὸς ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι αὐτοῦ τῇ μεγάλῃ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου

38 ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ἔθνη μεγάλα καὶ ἰσχυρότερά σου πρὸ προσώπου σου εἰσαγαγεῖν σε δοῦναί σοι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν κληρονομεῖν καθὼς ἔχεις σήμερον

39 καὶ γνώσῃ σήμερον καὶ ἐπιστραφήσῃ τῇ διανοίᾳ ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεός σου οὗτος θεὸς ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ ἄνω καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς κάτω καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι πλὴν αὐτοῦ

40 καὶ φυλάξῃ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ ὅσας ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον ἵνα εὖ σοι γένηται καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου μετὰ σέ ὅπως μακροήμεροι γένησθε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς κύριος ὁ θεός σου δίδωσίν σοι πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

1 Et nunc, Israël, audi præcepta et judicia, quæ ego doceo te: ut faciens ea, vivas, et ingrediens possideas terram, quam Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum daturus est vobis.

2 Non addetis ad verbum, quod vobis loquor, nec auferetis ex eo: custodite mandata Domini Dei vestri, quæ ego præcipio vobis.

3 Oculi vestri viderunt omnia quæ fecit Dominus contra Beelphegor, quomodo contriverit omnes cultores ejus de medio vestri.

4 Vos autem qui adhæretis Domino Deo vestro, vivitis universi usque in præsentem diem.

5 Scitis quod docuerim vos præcepta atque justitias, sicut mandavit mihi Dominus Deus meus: sic facietis ea in terra, quam possessuri estis:

6 et observabitis et implebitis opere. Hæc est enim vestra sapientia, et intellectus coram populis, ut audientes universa præcepta hæc, dicant: En populus sapiens et intelligens, gens magna.

7 Nec est alia natio tam grandis, quæ habeat deos appropinquantes sibi, sicut Deus noster adest cunctis obsecrationibus nostris.

8 Quæ est enim alia gens sic inclyta, ut habeat cæremonias, justaque judicia, et universam legem, quam ego proponam hodie ante oculos vestros?

9 Custodi igitur temetipsum, et animam tuam sollicite. Ne obliviscaris verborum, quæ viderunt oculi tui, et ne excidant de corde tuo cunctis diebus vitæ tuæ. Docebis ea filios ac nepotes tuos,

10 a die in quo stetisti coram Domino Deo tuo in Horeb, quando Dominus locutus est mihi, dicens: Congrega ad me populum, ut audiant sermones meos, et discant timere me omni tempore quo vivunt in terra, doceantque filios suos.

11 Et accessistis ad radices montis, qui ardebat usque ad cælum: erantque in eo tenebræ, et nubes, et caligo.

12 Locutusque est Dominus ad vos de medio ignis. Vocem verborum ejus audistis, et formam penitus non vidistis.

13 Et ostendit vobis pactum suum, quod præcepit ut faceretis, et decem verba, quæ scripsit in duabus tabulis lapideis.

14 Mihique mandavit in illo tempore ut docerem vos cæremonias et judicia, quæ facere deberetis in terra, quam possessuri estis.

15 Custodite igitur sollicite animas vestras. Non vidistis aliquam similitudinem in die, qua locutus est vobis Dominus in Horeb de medio ignis:

16 ne forte decepti faciatis vobis sculptam similitudinem, aut imaginem masculi vel feminæ:

17 similitudinem omnium jumentorum, quæ sunt super terram, vel avium sub cælo volantium,

18 atque reptilium, quæ moventur in terra, sive piscium qui sub terra morantur in aquis:

19 ne forte elevatis oculis ad cælum, videas solem et lunam, et omnia astra cæli, et errore deceptus adores ea, et colas quæ creavit Dominus Deus tuus in ministerium cunctis gentibus, quæ sub cælo sunt.

20 Vos autem tulit Dominus, et eduxit de fornace ferrea Ægypti, ut haberet populum hæreditarium, sicut est in præsenti die.

21 Iratusque est Dominus contra me propter sermones vestros, et juravit ut non transirem Jordanem, nec ingrederer terram optimam, quam daturus est vobis.

22 Ecce morior in hac humo; non transibo Jordanem: vos transibitis, et possidebitis terram egregiam.

23 Cave nequando obliviscaris pacti Domini Dei tui, quod pepigit tecum, et facias tibi sculptam similitudinem eorum, quæ fieri Dominus prohibuit:

24 quia Dominus Deus tuus ignis consumens est, Deus æmulator.

25 Si genueritis filios ac nepotes, et morati fueritis in terra, deceptique feceritis vobis aliquam similitudinem, patrantes malum coram Domino Deo vestro, ut eum ad iracundiam provocetis:

26 testes invoco hodie cælum et terram, cito perituros vos esse de terra, quam transito Jordane possessuri estis: non habitabitis in ea longo tempore, sed delebit vos Dominus,

27 atque disperget in omnes gentes, et remanebitis pauci in nationibus, ad quas vos ducturus est Dominus.

28 Ibique servietis diis, qui hominum manu fabricati sunt, ligno et lapidi qui non vident, nec audiunt, nec comedunt, nec odorantur.

29 Cumque quæsieris ibi Dominum Deum tuum, invenies eum: si tamen toto corde quæsieris, et tota tribulatione animæ tuæ.

30 Postquam te invenerint omnia quæ prædicta sunt, novissimo tempore reverteris ad Dominum Deum tuum, et audies vocem ejus.

31 Quia Deus misericors Dominus Deus tuus est: non dimittet te, nec omnino delebit, neque obliviscetur pacti, in quo juravit patribus tuis.

32 Interroga de diebus antiquis, qui fuerunt ante te ex die quo creavit Deus hominem super terram, a summo cælo usque ad summum ejus, si facta est aliquando hujuscemodi res, aut umquam cognitum est,

33 ut audiret populus vocem Dei loquentis de medio ignis, sicut tu audisti, et vixisti:

34 si fecit Deus ut ingrederetur, et tolleret sibi gentem de medio nationum, per tentationes, signa atque portenta, per pugnam et robustam manum, extentumque brachium, et horribiles visiones juxta omnia quæ fecit pro vobis Dominus Deus vester in Ægypto, videntibus oculis tuis:

35 ut scires quoniam Dominus ipse est Deus, et non est alius præter eum.

36 De cælo te fecit audire vocem suam, ut doceret te, et in terra ostendit tibi ignem suum maximum, et audisti verba illius de medio ignis:

37 quia dilexit patres tuos, et elegit semen eorum post eos. Eduxitque te præcedens in virtute sua magna ex Ægypto,

38 ut deleret nationes maximas et fortiores te in introitu tuo: et introduceret te, daretque tibi terram earum in possessionem, sicut cernis in præsenti die.

39 Scito ergo hodie, et cogitato in corde tuo quod Dominus ipse sit Deus in cælo sursum, et in terra deorsum, et non sit alius.

40 Custodi præcepta ejus atque mandata, quæ ego præcipio tibi: ut bene sit tibi, et filiis tuis post te, et permaneas multo tempore super terram, quam Dominus Deus tuus daturus est tibi.

41 Tunc separavit Moyses tres civitates trans Jordanem ad orientalem plagam,

42 ut confugiat ad eas qui occiderit nolens proximum suum, nec sibi fuerit inimicus ante unum et alterum diem, et ad harum aliquam urbium possit evadere:

43 Bosor in solitudine, quæ sita est in terra campestri de tribu Ruben: et Ramoth in Galaad, quæ est in tribu Gad: et Golan in Basan, quæ est in tribu Manasse.

44 Ista est lex, quam proposuit Moyses coram filiis Israël:

45 et hæc testimonia et cæremoniæ atque judicia, quæ locutus est ad filios Israël, quando egressi sunt de Ægypto,

46 trans Jordanem in valle contra fanum Phogor in terra Sehon regis Amorrhæi, qui habitavit in Hesebon, quem percussit Moyses. Filii quoque Israël egressi ex Ægypto

47 possederunt terram ejus, et terram Og regis Basan, duorum regum Amorrhæorum, qui erant trans Jordanem ad solis ortum:

48 ab Aroër, quæ sita est super ripam torrentis Arnon, usque ad montem Sion, qui est et Hermon,

49 omnem planitiem trans Jordanem ad orientalem plagam, usque ad mare solitudinis, et usque ad radices montis Phasga.
