Deuteronomy 12


1  These428 are the statutes2706 and judgments,4941 which834 ye shall observe8104 to do6213 in the land,776 which834 the LORD3068 God430 of thy fathers1 giveth5414 thee to possess3423 it, all3605 the days3117 that834 ye859 live2416 upon5921 the earth.127

2  Ye shall utterly destroy6 6 853 all3605 the places,4725 wherein834 8033 the nations1471 which834 853 ye859 shall possess3423 served5647 853 their gods,430 upon5921 the high7311 mountains,2022 and upon5921 the hills,1389 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree:6086

3  And ye shall overthrow5422 853 their altars,4196 and break7665 853 their pillars,4676 and burn8313 their groves842 with fire;784 and ye shall hew down1438 the graven images6456 of their gods,430 and destroy6 853 the names8034 of them out of4480 that1931 place.4725

4  Ye shall not3808 do6213 so3651 unto the LORD3068 your God.430

5  But3588 518 unto413 the place4725 which834 the LORD3068 your God430 shall choose977 out of all4480 3605 your tribes7626 to put7760 853 his name8034 there,8033 even unto his habitation7933 shall ye seek,1875 and thither8033 thou shalt come:935

6  And thither8033 ye shall bring935 your burnt offerings,5930 and your sacrifices,2077 and your tithes,4643 and 853 heave offerings8641 of your hand,3027 and your vows,5088 and your freewill offerings,5071 and the firstlings1062 of your herds1241 and of your flocks:6629

7  And there8033 ye shall eat398 before6440 the LORD3068 your God,430 and ye shall rejoice8055 in all3605 that ye put4916 your hand3027 unto, ye859 and your households,1004 wherein834 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath blessed1288 thee.

8  Ye shall not3808 do6213 after all3605 the things that834 we587 do6213 here6311 this day,3117 every man376 whatsoever3605 is right3477 in his own eyes.5869

9  For3588 ye are not3808 as yet5704 6258 come935 to413 the rest4496 and to413 the inheritance,5159 which834 the LORD3068 your God430 giveth5414 you.

10  But when ye go over5674 853 Jordan,3383 and dwell3427 in the land776 which834 the LORD3068 your God430 giveth you to inherit,5157 853 and when he giveth you rest5117 from all4480 3605 your enemies341 round about,4480 5439 so that ye dwell3427 in safety;983

11  Then there shall be1961 a place4725 which834 the LORD3068 your God430 shall choose977 to cause his name8034 to dwell7931 there;8033 thither8033 shall ye bring935 853 all3605 that834 I595 command6680 you; your burnt offerings,5930 and your sacrifices,2077 your tithes,4643 and the heave offering8641 of your hand,3027 and all3605 your choice4005 vows5088 which834 ye vow5087 unto the LORD:3068

12  And ye shall rejoice8055 before6440 the LORD3068 your God,430 ye,859 and your sons,1121 and your daughters,1323 and your menservants,5650 and your maidservants,519 and the Levite3881 that834 is within your gates;8179 forasmuch3588 as he hath no369 part2506 nor inheritance5159 with854 you.

13  Take heed8104 to thyself that6435 thou offer5927 not thy burnt offerings5930 in every3605 place4725 that834 thou seest:7200

14  But3588 518 in the place4725 which834 the LORD3068 shall choose977 in one259 of thy tribes,7626 there8033 thou shalt offer5927 thy burnt offerings,5930 and there8033 thou shalt do6213 all3605 that834 I595 command6680 thee.

15  Notwithstanding7535 thou mayest kill2076 and eat398 flesh1320 in all3605 thy gates,8179 whatsoever3605 thy soul5315 lusteth after,185 according to the blessing1293 of the LORD3068 thy God430 which834 he hath given5414 thee: the unclean2931 and the clean2889 may eat398 thereof, as of the roebuck,6643 and as of the hart.354

16  Only7535 ye shall not3808 eat398 the blood;1818 ye shall pour8210 it upon5921 the earth776 as water.4325

17  Thou mayest3201 not3808 eat398 within thy gates8179 the tithe4643 of thy corn,1715 or of thy wine,8492 or of thy oil,3323 or the firstlings1062 of thy herds1241 or of thy flock,6629 nor any3605 of thy vows5088 which834 thou vowest,5087 nor thy freewill offerings,5071 or heave offering8641 of thine hand:3027

18  But3588 518 thou must eat398 them before6440 the LORD3068 thy God430 in the place4725 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 shall choose,977 thou,859 and thy son,1121 and thy daughter,1323 and thy manservant,5650 and thy maidservant,519 and the Levite3881 that834 is within thy gates:8179 and thou shalt rejoice8055 before6440 the LORD3068 thy God430 in all3605 that thou puttest4916 thine hands3027 unto.

19  Take heed8104 to thyself that thou forsake not6435 5800 853 the Levite3881 as long as thou livest3605 3117 upon5921 the earth.127

20  When3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 shall enlarge7337 853 thy border,1366 as834 he hath promised1696 thee, and thou shalt say,559 I will eat398 flesh,1320 because3588 thy soul5315 longeth183 to eat398 flesh;1320 thou mayest eat398 flesh,1320 whatsoever3605 thy soul5315 lusteth after.185

21  If3588 the place4725 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath chosen977 to put7760 his name8034 there8033 be too far7368 from4480 thee, then thou shalt kill2076 of thy herd4480 1241 and of thy flock,4480 6629 which834 the LORD3068 hath given5414 thee as834 I have commanded6680 thee, and thou shalt eat398 in thy gates8179 whatsoever3605 thy soul5315 lusteth after.185

22  Even389 as834 853 the roebuck6643 and the hart354 is eaten,398 so3651 thou shalt eat398 them: the unclean2931 and the clean2889 shall eat398 of them alike.3162

23  Only7535 be sure2388 that thou eat398 not1115 the blood:1818 for3588 the blood1818 is the life;5315 and thou mayest not3808 eat398 the life5315 with5973 the flesh.1320

24  Thou shalt not3808 eat398 it; thou shalt pour8210 it upon5921 the earth776 as water.4325

25  Thou shalt not3808 eat398 it; that4616 it may go well3190 with thee, and with thy children1121 after310 thee, when3588 thou shalt do6213 that which is right3477 in the sight5869 of the LORD.3068

26  Only7535 thy holy things6944 which834 thou hast,1961 and thy vows,5088 thou shalt take,5375 and go935 unto413 the place4725 which834 the LORD3068 shall choose:977

27  And thou shalt offer6213 thy burnt offerings,5930 the flesh1320 and the blood,1818 upon5921 the altar4196 of the LORD3068 thy God:430 and the blood1818 of thy sacrifices2077 shall be poured out8210 upon5921 the altar4196 of the LORD3068 thy God,430 and thou shalt eat398 the flesh.1320

28  Observe8104 and hear8085 853 all3605 these428 words1697 which834 I595 command6680 thee, that4616 it may go well3190 with thee, and with thy children1121 after310 thee forever,5704 5769 when3588 thou doest6213 that which is good2896 and right3477 in the sight5869 of the LORD3068 thy God.430

29  When3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 shall cut off3772 853 the nations1471 from before4480 6440 thee, whither834 8033 thou859 goest935 to possess3423 them, and thou succeedest3423 them, and dwellest3427 in their land;776

30  Take heed8104 to thyself that6435 thou be not snared5367 by following310 them, after that310 they be destroyed8045 from before4480 6440 thee; and that6435 thou inquire1875 not after their gods,430 saying,559 How349 did these428 nations1471 serve5647 853 their gods?430 even so3651 will I589 do6213 likewise.1571

31  Thou shalt not3808 do6213 so3651 unto the LORD3068 thy God:430 for3588 every3605 abomination8441 to the LORD,3068 which834 he hateth,8130 have they done6213 unto their gods;430 for3588 even1571 853 their sons1121 and their daughters1323 they have burnt8313 in the fire784 to their gods.430

32  853 What thing soever3605 1697 834 I595 command6680 you, observe8104 to do6213 it: thou shalt not3808 add3254 thereto,5921 nor3808 diminish1639 from4480 it.


1 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ προστάγματα καὶ αἱ κρίσεις ἃς φυλάξετε τοῦ ποιεῖν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν δίδωσιν ὑμῖν ἐν κλήρῳ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἃς ὑμεῖς ζῆτε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

2 ἀπωλείᾳ ἀπολεῖτε πάντας τοὺς τόπους ἐν οἷς ἐλάτρευσαν ἐκεῖ τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτῶν οὓς ὑμεῖς κληρονομεῖτε αὐτούς ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων τῶν ὑψηλῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν θινῶν καὶ ὑποκάτω δένδρου δασέος

3 καὶ κατασκάψετε τοὺς βωμοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ συντρίψετε τὰς στήλας αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ἄλση αὐτῶν ἐκκόψετε καὶ τὰ γλυπτὰ τῶν θεῶν αὐτῶν κατακαύσετε πυρί καὶ ἀπολεῖται τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῶν ἐκ τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου

4 οὐ ποιήσετε οὕτως κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν

5 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐν μιᾷ τῶν φυλῶν ὑμῶν ἐπονομάσαι τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ ἐπικληθῆναι καὶ ἐκζητήσετε καὶ εἰσελεύσεσθε ἐκεῖ

6 καὶ οἴσετε ἐκεῖ τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ θυσιάσματα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς ἀπαρχὰς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς εὐχὰς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἑκούσια ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ πρωτότοκα τῶν βοῶν ὑμῶν καὶ τῶν προβάτων ὑμῶν

7 καὶ φάγεσθε ἐκεῖ ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ εὐφρανθήσεσθε ἐπὶ πᾶσιν οὗ ἂν τὴν χεῖρα ἐπιβάλητε ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ οἶκοι ὑμῶν καθότι εὐλόγησέν σε κύριος ὁ θεός σου

8 οὐ ποιήσετε πάντα ἃ ἡμεῖς ποιοῦμεν ὧδε σήμερον ἕκαστος τὸ ἀρεστὸν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ

9 οὐ γὰρ ἥκατε ἕως τοῦ νῦν εἰς τὴν κατάπαυσιν καὶ εἰς τὴν κληρονομίαν ἣν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν δίδωσιν ὑμῖν

10 καὶ διαβήσεσθε τὸν Ιορδάνην καὶ κατοικήσετε ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἧς κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν κατακληρονομεῖ ὑμῖν καὶ καταπαύσει ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὑμῶν τῶν κύκλῳ καὶ κατοικήσετε μετὰ ἀσφαλείας

11 καὶ ἔσται ὁ τόπος ὃν ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐπικληθῆναι τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ ἐκεῖ οἴσετε πάντα ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαι ὑμῖν σήμερον τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ θυσιάσματα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιδέκατα ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς ἀπαρχὰς τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ δόματα ὑμῶν καὶ πᾶν ἐκλεκτὸν τῶν δώρων ὑμῶν ὅσα ἐὰν εὔξησθε τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν

12 καὶ εὐφρανθήσεσθε ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες ὑμῶν οἱ παῖδες ὑμῶν καὶ αἱ παιδίσκαι ὑμῶν καὶ ὁ Λευίτης ὁ ἐπὶ τῶν πυλῶν ὑμῶν ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῷ μερὶς οὐδὲ κλῆρος μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν

13 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ μὴ ἀνενέγκῃς τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματά σου ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ οὗ ἐὰν ἴδῃς

14 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ὁ θεός σου αὐτὸν ἐν μιᾷ τῶν φυλῶν σου ἐκεῖ ἀνοίσεις τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματά σου καὶ ἐκεῖ ποιήσεις πάντα ὅσα ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι σήμερον

15 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐν πάσῃ ἐπιθυμίᾳ σου θύσεις καὶ φάγῃ κρέα κατὰ τὴν εὐλογίαν κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου ἣν ἔδωκέν σοι ἐν πάσῃ πόλει ὁ ἀκάθαρτος ἐν σοὶ καὶ ὁ καθαρὸς ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ φάγεται αὐτὸ ὡς δορκάδα ἢ ἔλαφον

16 πλὴν τὸ αἷμα οὐ φάγεσθε ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐκχεεῖτε αὐτὸ ὡς ὕδωρ

17 οὐ δυνήσῃ φαγεῖν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσίν σου τὸ ἐπιδέκατον τοῦ σίτου σου καὶ τοῦ οἴνου σου καὶ τοῦ ἐλαίου σου τὰ πρωτότοκα τῶν βοῶν σου καὶ τῶν προβάτων σου καὶ πάσας εὐχάς ὅσας ἂν εὔξησθε καὶ τὰς ὁμολογίας ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς ἀπαρχὰς τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν

18 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου φάγῃ αὐτὰ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ ᾧ ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ὁ θεός σου αὐτῷ σὺ καὶ ὁ υἱός σου καὶ ἡ θυγάτηρ σου ὁ παῖς σου καὶ ἡ παιδίσκη σου καὶ ὁ προσήλυτος ὁ ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ὑμῶν καὶ εὐφρανθήσῃ ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου ἐπὶ πάντα οὗ ἂν ἐπιβάλῃς τὴν χεῖρά σου

19 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ μὴ ἐγκαταλίπῃς τὸν Λευίτην πάντα τὸν χρόνον ὅσον ἐὰν ζῇς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

20 ἐὰν δὲ ἐμπλατύνῃ κύριος ὁ θεός σου τὰ ὅριά σου καθάπερ ἐλάλησέν σοι καὶ ἐρεῖς φάγομαι κρέα ἐὰν ἐπιθυμήσῃ ἡ ψυχή σου ὥστε φαγεῖν κρέα ἐν πάσῃ ἐπιθυμίᾳ τῆς ψυχῆς σου φάγῃ κρέα

21 ἐὰν δὲ μακρότερον ἀπέχῃ σου ὁ τόπος ὃν ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ὁ θεός σου ἐπικληθῆναι τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ καὶ θύσεις ἀπὸ τῶν βοῶν σου καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν προβάτων σου ὧν ἂν δῷ ὁ θεός σοι ὃν τρόπον ἐνετειλάμην σοι καὶ φάγῃ ἐν ταῖς πόλεσίν σου κατὰ τὴν ἐπιθυμίαν τῆς ψυχῆς σου

22 ὡς ἔσθεται ἡ δορκὰς καὶ ἡ ἔλαφος οὕτως φάγῃ αὐτό ὁ ἀκάθαρτος ἐν σοὶ καὶ ὁ καθαρὸς ὡσαύτως ἔδεται

23 πρόσεχε ἰσχυρῶς τοῦ μὴ φαγεῖν αἷμα ὅτι τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ψυχή οὐ βρωθήσεται ἡ ψυχὴ μετὰ τῶν κρεῶν

24 οὐ φάγεσθε ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐκχεεῖτε αὐτὸ ὡς ὕδωρ

25 οὐ φάγῃ αὐτό ἵνα εὖ σοι γένηται καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου μετὰ σέ ἐὰν ποιήσῃς τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὸ ἀρεστὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου

26 πλὴν τὰ ἅγιά σου ἐὰν γένηταί σοι καὶ τὰς εὐχάς σου λαβὼν ἥξεις εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ὁ θεός σου ἐπικληθῆναι τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ

27 καὶ ποιήσεις τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματά σου τὰ κρέα ἀνοίσεις ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου τὸ δὲ αἷμα τῶν θυσιῶν σου προσχεεῖς πρὸς τὴν βάσιν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου τὰ δὲ κρέα φάγῃ

28 φυλάσσου καὶ ἄκουε καὶ ποιήσεις πάντας τοὺς λόγους οὓς ἐγὼ ἐντέλλομαί σοι ἵνα εὖ σοι γένηται καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου δι᾽ αἰῶνος ἐὰν ποιήσῃς τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὸ ἀρεστὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου

29 ἐὰν δὲ ἐξολεθρεύσῃ κύριος ὁ θεός σου τὰ ἔθνη εἰς οὓς σὺ εἰσπορεύῃ ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ κατακληρονομήσῃς αὐτοὺς καὶ κατοικήσῃς ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν

30 πρόσεχε σεαυτῷ μὴ ἐκζητήσῃς ἐπακολουθῆσαι αὐτοῖς μετὰ τὸ ἐξολεθρευθῆναι αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου σου οὐ μὴ ἐκζητήσῃς τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν λέγων πῶς ποιοῦσιν τὰ ἔθνη ταῦτα τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτῶν ποιήσω κἀγώ

31 οὐ ποιήσεις οὕτως κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ σου τὰ γὰρ βδελύγματα ἃ κύριος ἐμίσησεν ἐποίησαν τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτῶν ὅτι τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν κατακαίουσιν ἐν πυρὶ τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτῶν

1 Hæc sunt præcepta atque judicia, quæ facere debetis in terra, quam Dominus Deus patrum tuorum daturus est tibi, ut possideas eam cunctis diebus, quibus super humum gradieris.

2 Subvertite omnia loca, in quibus coluerunt gentes, quas possessuri estis, deos suos super montes excelsos, et colles, et subter omne lignum frondosum.

3 Dissipate aras eorum, et confringite statuas: lucos igne comburite, et idola comminuite: disperdite nomina eorum de locis illis.

4 Non facietis ita Domino Deo vestro:

5 sed ad locum, quem elegerit Dominus Deus vester de cunctis tribubus vestris, ut ponat nomen suum ibi, et habitet in eo, venietis:

6 et offeretis in loco illo holocausta et victimas vestras, decimas et primitias manuum vestrarum, et vota atque donaria, primogenita boum et ovium.

7 Et comedetis ibi in conspectu Domini Dei vestri: ac lætabimini in cunctis, ad quæ miseritis manum vos et domus vestræ, in quibus benedixerit vobis Dominus Deus vester.

8 Non facietis ibi quæ nos hic facimus hodie, singuli quod sibi rectum videtur:

9 neque enim usque in præsens tempus venistis ad requiem, et possessionem, quam Dominus Deus vester daturus est vobis.

10 Transibitis Jordanem, et habitabitis in terra, quam Dominus Deus vester daturus est vobis, ut requiescatis a cunctis hostibus per circuitum: et absque ullo timore habitetis

11 in loco, quem elegerit Dominus Deus vester, ut sit nomen ejus in eo: illuc omnia, quæ præcipio, conferetis, holocausta, et hostias, ac decimas, et primitias manuum vestrarum: et quidquid præcipuum est in muneribus, quæ vovebitis Domino.

12 Ibi epulabimini coram Domino Deo vestro, vos et filii ac filiæ vestræ, famuli et famulæ, atque Levites qui in urbibus vestris commoratur: neque enim habet aliam partem et possessionem inter vos.

13 Cave ne offeras holocausta tua in omni loco, quem videris:

14 sed in eo, quem elegerit Dominus, in una tribuum tuarum offeres hostias, et facies quæcumque præcipio tibi.

15 Sin autem comedere volueris, et te esus carnium delectaverit, occide, comede juxta benedictionem Domini Dei tui, quam dedit tibi in urbibus tuis: sive immundum fuerit, hoc est, maculatum et debile: sive mundum, hoc est, integrum et sine macula, quod offerri licet, sicut capream et cervum, comedes:

16 absque esu dumtaxat sanguinis, quem super terram quasi aquam effundes.

17 Non poteris comedere in oppidis tuis decimam frumenti, et vini, et olei tui, primogenita armentorum et pecorum, et omnia quæ voveris, et sponte offerre volueris, et primitias manuum tuarum:

18 sed coram Domino Deo tuo comedes ea in loco, quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus, tu et filius tuus, et filia tua, et servus et famula, atque Levites qui manet in urbibus tuis: et lætaberis et reficieris coram Domino Deo tuo in cunctis ad quæ extenderis manum tuam.

19 Cave ne derelinquas Levitem in omni tempore quo versaris in terra.

20 Quando dilataverit Dominus Deus tuus terminos tuos, sicut locutus est tibi, et volueris vesci carnibus, quas desiderat anima tua:

21 locus autem, quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus ut sit nomen ejus ibi, si procul fuerit, occides de armentis et pecoribus, quæ habueris, sicut præcepi tibi, et comedes in oppidis tuis, ut tibi placet.

22 Sicut comeditur caprea et cervus, ita vesceris eis: et mundus et immundus in commune vescentur.

23 Hoc solum cave, ne sanguinem comedas: sanguis enim eorum pro anima est, et idcirco non debes animam comedere cum carnibus:

24 sed super terram fundes quasi aquam,

25 ut bene sit tibi et filiis tuis post te, cum feceris quod placet in conspectu Domini.

26 Quæ autem sanctificaveris, et voveris Domino, tolles, et venies ad locum, quem elegerit Dominus:

27 et offeres oblationes tuas carnem et sanguinem super altare Domini Dei tui: sanguinem hostiarum fundes in altari; carnibus autem ipse vesceris.

28 Observa et audi omnia quæ ego præcipio tibi, ut bene sit tibi et filiis tuis post te in sempiternum, cum feceris quod bonum est et placitum in conspectu Domini Dei tui.

29 Quando disperdiderit Dominus Deus tuus ante faciem tuam gentes, ad quas ingredieris possidendas, et possederis eas, atque habitaveris in terra earum:

30 cave ne imiteris eas, postquam te fuerint introëunte subversæ, et requiras cæremonias earum, dicens: Sicut coluerunt gentes istæ deos suos, ita et ego colam.

31 Non facies similiter Domino Deo tuo. Omnes enim abominationes, quas aversatur Dominus, fecerunt diis suis, offerentes filios et filias, et comburentes igni.

32 Quod præcipio tibi, hoc tantum facito Domino: nec addas quidquam, nec minuas.
