Deuteronomy 31


1  And Moses4872 went1980 and spoke1696 853 these428 words1697 unto413 all3605 Israel.3478

2  And he said559 unto413 them, I595 am a hundred3967 and twenty6242 years8141 old1121 this day;3117 I can3201 no3808 more5750 go out3318 and come in:935 also the LORD3068 hath said559 unto413 me, Thou shalt not3808 go over5674 853 this2088 Jordan.3383

3  The LORD3068 thy God,430 he1931 will go over5674 before6440 thee, and he1931 will destroy8045 853 these428 nations1471 from before4480 6440 thee, and thou shalt possess3423 them: and Joshua,3091 he1931 shall go over5674 before6440 thee, as834 the LORD3068 hath said.1696

4  And the LORD3068 shall do6213 unto them as834 he did6213 to Sihon5511 and to Og,5747 kings4428 of the Amorites,567 and unto the land776 of them, whom834 853 he destroyed.8045

5  And the LORD3068 shall give them up5414 before your face,6440 that ye may do6213 unto them according unto all3605 the commandments4687 which834 I have commanded6680 you.

6  Be strong2388 and of a good courage,553 fear3372 not,408 nor408 be afraid6206 of4480 6440 them: for3588 the LORD3068 thy God,430 he1931 it is that doth go1980 with5973 thee; he will not3808 fail7503 thee, nor3808 forsake5800 thee.

7  And Moses4872 called7121 unto Joshua,3091 and said559 unto413 him in the sight5869 of all3605 Israel,3478 Be strong2388 and of a good courage:553 for3588 thou859 must go935 with854 this2088 people5971 unto413 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 hath sworn7650 unto their fathers1 to give5414 them; and thou859 shalt cause them to inherit5157 it.

8  And the LORD,3068 he1931 it is that doth go1980 before6440 thee; he1931 will be1961 with thee,5973 he will not3808 fail7503 thee, neither3808 forsake5800 thee: fear3372 not,3808 neither3808 be dismayed.2865

9  And Moses4872 wrote3789 853 this2063 law,8451 and delivered5414 it unto413 the priests3548 the sons1121 of Levi,3878 which bore5375 853 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD,3068 and unto413 all3605 the elders2205 of Israel.3478

10  And Moses4872 commanded6680 them, saying,559 At the end4480 7093 of every seven7651 years,8141 in the solemnity4150 of the year8141 of release,8059 in the feast2282 of tabernacles,5521

11  When all3605 Israel3478 is come935 to appear7200 853 before6440 the LORD3068 thy God430 in the place4725 which834 he shall choose,977 thou shalt read7121 853 this2063 law8451 before5048 all3605 Israel3478 in their hearing.241

12  Gather the people together,6950 853 5971 men,376 and women,802 and children,2945 and thy stranger1616 that834 is within thy gates,8179 that4616 they may hear,8085 and that4616 they may learn,3925 and fear3372 853 the LORD3068 your God,430 and observe8104 to do6213 853 all3605 the words1697 of this2063 law:8451

13  And that their children,1121 which834 have not3808 known3045 any thing, may hear,8085 and learn3925 to fear3372 853 the LORD3068 your God,430 as long as3605 3117 834 ye859 live2416 in5921 the land127 whither834 8033 ye859 go over5674 853 Jordan3383 to possess3423 it.

14  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Behold,2005 thy days3117 approach7126 that thou must die:4191 call7121 853 Joshua,3091 and present yourselves3320 in the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 that I may give him a charge.6680 And Moses4872 and Joshua3091 went,1980 and presented themselves3320 in the tabernacle168 of the congregation.4150

15  And the LORD3068 appeared7200 in the tabernacle168 in a pillar5982 of a cloud:6051 and the pillar5982 of the cloud6051 stood5975 over5921 the door6607 of the tabernacle.168

16  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Behold,2009 thou shalt sleep7901 with5973 thy fathers;1 and this2088 people5971 will rise up,6965 and go a whoring2181 after310 the gods430 of the strangers5236 of the land,776 whither834 8033 they1931 go935 to be among7130 them, and will forsake5800 me, and break6565 853 my covenant1285 which834 I have made3772 with854 them.

17  Then my anger639 shall be kindled2734 against them in that1931 day,3117 and I will forsake5800 them, and I will hide5641 my face6440 from4480 them, and they shall be1961 devoured,398 and many7227 evils7451 and troubles6869 shall befall4672 them; so that they will say559 in that1931 day,3117 Are not3808 these428 evils7451 come upon4672 us, because5921 3588 our God430 is not369 among7130 us?

18  And I595 will surely hide5641 5641 my face6440 in that1931 day3117 for5921 all3605 the evils7451 which834 they shall have wrought,6213 in that3588 they are turned6437 unto413 other312 gods.430

19  Now6258 therefore write3789 853 ye this2063 song7892 for you, and teach3925 it 853 the children1121 of Israel:3478 put7760 it in their mouths,6310 that4616 this2063 song7892 may be1961 a witness5707 for me against the children1121 of Israel.3478

20  For3588 when I shall have brought935 them into413 the land127 which834 I swore7650 unto their fathers,1 that floweth2100 with milk2461 and honey;1706 and they shall have eaten398 and filled themselves,7646 and waxen fat;1878 then will they turn6437 unto413 other312 gods,430 and serve5647 them, and provoke5006 me, and break6565 853 my covenant.1285

21  And it shall come to pass,1961 when3588 many7227 evils7451 and troubles6869 are befallen4672 them, that this2063 song7892 shall testify6030 against6440 them as a witness;5707 for3588 it shall not3808 be forgotten7911 out of the mouths4480 6310 of their seed:2233 for3588 I know3045 853 their imagination3336 which834 they1931 go about,6213 even now,3117 before2962 I have brought935 them into413 the land776 which834 I swore.7650

22  Moses4872 therefore wrote3789 853 this2063 song7892 the same1931 day,3117 and taught3925 it 853 the children1121 of Israel.3478

23  And he gave6680 853 Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun5126 a charge, and said,559 Be strong2388 and of a good courage:553 for3588 thou859 shalt bring935 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 into413 the land776 which834 I swore7650 unto them: and I595 will be1961 with5973 thee.

24  And it came to pass,1961 when Moses4872 had made an end3615 of writing3789 853 the words1697 of this2063 law8451 in5921 a book,5612 until5704 they were finished,8552

25  That Moses4872 commanded6680 853 the Levites,3881 which bore5375 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD,3068 saying,559

26  Take3947 853 this2088 book5612 of the law,8451 and put7760 it in the side4480 6654 of the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 your God,430 that it may be1961 there8033 for a witness5707 against thee.

27  For3588 I595 know3045 853 thy rebellion,4805 and thy stiff7186 neck:6203 behold,2005 while I am yet5750 alive2416 with5973 you this day,3117 ye have been1961 rebellious4784 against5973 the LORD;3068 and how3588 much more637 after310 my death?4194

28  Gather6950 unto413 me 853 all3605 the elders2205 of your tribes,7626 and your officers,7860 that I may speak1696 853 these428 words1697 in their ears,241 and call5749 853 heaven8064 and earth776 to record against them.

29  For3588 I know3045 that after310 my death4194 ye will utterly corrupt7843 7843 yourselves, and turn aside5493 from4480 the way1870 which834 I have commanded6680 you; and evil7451 will befall7122 you in the latter319 days;3117 because3588 ye will do6213 853 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 to provoke him to anger3707 through the work4639 of your hands.3027

30  And Moses4872 spoke1696 in the ears241 of all3605 the congregation6951 of Israel3478 853 the words1697 of this2063 song,7892 until5704 they were ended.8552


1 καὶ συνετέλεσεν Μωυσῆς λαλῶν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους πρὸς πάντας υἱοὺς Ισραηλ

2 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἑκατὸν καὶ εἴκοσι ἐτῶν ἐγώ εἰμι σήμερον οὐ δυνήσομαι ἔτι εἰσπορεύεσθαι καὶ ἐκπορεύεσθαι κύριος δὲ εἶπεν πρός με οὐ διαβήσῃ τὸν Ιορδάνην τοῦτον

3 κύριος ὁ θεός σου ὁ προπορευόμενος πρὸ προσώπου σου αὐτὸς ἐξολεθρεύσει τὰ ἔθνη ταῦτα ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ κατακληρονομήσεις αὐτούς καὶ Ἰησοῦς ὁ προπορευόμενος πρὸ προσώπου σου καθὰ ἐλάλησεν κύριος

4 καὶ ποιήσει κύριος αὐτοῖς καθὰ ἐποίησεν Σηων καὶ Ωγ τοῖς δυσὶ βασιλεῦσιν τῶν Αμορραίων οἳ ἦσαν πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου καὶ τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν καθότι ἐξωλέθρευσεν αὐτούς

5 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς κύριος ὑμῖν καὶ ποιήσετε αὐτοῖς καθότι ἐνετειλάμην ὑμῖν

6 ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε μὴ φοβοῦ μηδὲ δειλία μηδὲ πτοηθῇς ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεός σου ὁ προπορευόμενος μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν ἐν ὑμῖν οὐ μή σε ἀνῇ οὔτε μή σε ἐγκαταλίπῃ

7 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Μωυσῆς Ἰησοῦν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἔναντι παντὸς Ισραηλ ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε σὺ γὰρ εἰσελεύσῃ πρὸ προσώπου τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσεν κύριος τοῖς πατράσιν ἡμῶν δοῦναι αὐτοῖς καὶ σὺ κατακληρονομήσεις αὐτὴν αὐτοῖς

8 καὶ κύριος ὁ συμπορευόμενος μετὰ σοῦ οὐκ ἀνήσει σε οὐδὲ μὴ ἐγκαταλίπῃ σε μὴ φοβοῦ μηδὲ δειλία

9 καὶ ἔγραψεν Μωυσῆς τὰ ῥήματα τοῦ νόμου τούτου εἰς βιβλίον καὶ ἔδωκεν τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν τοῖς υἱοῖς Λευι τοῖς αἴρουσιν τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ τοῖς πρεσβυτέροις τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

10 καὶ ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ λέγων μετὰ ἑπτὰ ἔτη ἐν καιρῷ ἐνιαυτοῦ ἀφέσεως ἐν ἑορτῇ σκηνοπηγίας

11 ἐν τῷ συμπορεύεσθαι πάντα Ισραηλ ὀφθῆναι ἐνώπιον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου ἐν τῷ τόπῳ ᾧ ἂν ἐκλέξηται κύριος ἀναγνώσεσθε τὸν νόμον τοῦτον ἐναντίον παντὸς Ισραηλ εἰς τὰ ὦτα αὐτῶν

12 ἐκκλησιάσας τὸν λαόν τοὺς ἄνδρας καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὰ ἔκγονα καὶ τὸν προσήλυτον τὸν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ὑμῶν ἵνα ἀκούσωσιν καὶ ἵνα μάθωσιν φοβεῖσθαι κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν καὶ ἀκούσονται ποιεῖν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ νόμου τούτου

13 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν οἳ οὐκ οἴδασιν ἀκούσονται καὶ μαθήσονται φοβεῖσθαι κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ὅσας αὐτοὶ ζῶσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς εἰς ἣν ὑμεῖς διαβαίνετε τὸν Ιορδάνην ἐκεῖ κληρονομῆσαι αὐτήν

14 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἰδοὺ ἠγγίκασιν αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ θανάτου σου κάλεσον Ἰησοῦν καὶ στῆτε παρὰ τὰς θύρας τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ ἐντελοῦμαι αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπορεύθη Μωυσῆς καὶ Ἰησοῦς εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ ἔστησαν παρὰ τὰς θύρας τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου

15 καὶ κατέβη κύριος ἐν νεφέλῃ καὶ ἔστη παρὰ τὰς θύρας τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ ἔστη ὁ στῦλος τῆς νεφέλης παρὰ τὰς θύρας τῆς σκηνῆς

16 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἰδοὺ σὺ κοιμᾷ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων σου καὶ ἀναστὰς ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ἐκπορνεύσει ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων τῆς γῆς εἰς ἣν οὗτος εἰσπορεύεται ἐκεῖ εἰς αὐτήν καὶ ἐγκαταλείψουσίν με καὶ διασκεδάσουσιν τὴν διαθήκην μου ἣν διεθέμην αὐτοῖς

17 καὶ ὀργισθήσομαι θυμῷ εἰς αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ καταλείψω αὐτοὺς καὶ ἀποστρέψω τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ ἔσται κατάβρωμα καὶ εὑρήσουσιν αὐτὸν κακὰ πολλὰ καὶ θλίψεις καὶ ἐρεῖ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ διότι οὐκ ἔστιν κύριος ὁ θεός μου ἐν ἐμοί εὕροσάν με τὰ κακὰ ταῦτα

18 ἐγὼ δὲ ἀποστροφῇ ἀποστρέψω τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ διὰ πάσας τὰς κακίας ἃς ἐποίησαν ὅτι ἐπέστρεψαν ἐπὶ θεοὺς ἀλλοτρίους

19 καὶ νῦν γράψατε τὰ ῥήματα τῆς ᾠδῆς ταύτης καὶ διδάξετε αὐτὴν τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ἐμβαλεῖτε αὐτὴν εἰς τὸ στόμα αὐτῶν ἵνα γένηταί μοι ἡ ᾠδὴ αὕτη εἰς μαρτύριον ἐν υἱοῖς Ισραηλ

20 εἰσάξω γὰρ αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθήν ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν δοῦναι αὐτοῖς γῆν ῥέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι καὶ φάγονται καὶ ἐμπλησθέντες κορήσουσιν καὶ ἐπιστραφήσονται ἐπὶ θεοὺς ἀλλοτρίους καὶ λατρεύσουσιν αὐτοῖς καὶ παροξυνοῦσίν με καὶ διασκεδάσουσιν τὴν διαθήκην μου

21 καὶ ἀντικαταστήσεται ἡ ᾠδὴ αὕτη κατὰ πρόσωπον μαρτυροῦσα οὐ γὰρ μὴ ἐπιλησθῇ ἀπὸ στόματος αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπὸ στόματος τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτῶν ἐγὼ γὰρ οἶδα τὴν πονηρίαν αὐτῶν ὅσα ποιοῦσιν ὧδε σήμερον πρὸ τοῦ εἰσαγαγεῖν με αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθήν ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν

22 καὶ ἔγραψεν Μωυσῆς τὴν ᾠδὴν ταύτην ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ καὶ ἐδίδαξεν αὐτὴν τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ

23 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Μωυσῆς Ἰησοῖ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἴσχυε σὺ γὰρ εἰσάξεις τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσεν κύριος αὐτοῖς καὶ αὐτὸς ἔσται μετὰ σοῦ

24 ἡνίκα δὲ συνετέλεσεν Μωυσῆς γράφων πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ νόμου τούτου εἰς βιβλίον ἕως εἰς τέλος

25 καὶ ἐνετείλατο τοῖς Λευίταις τοῖς αἴρουσιν τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου λέγων

26 λαβόντες τὸ βιβλίον τοῦ νόμου τούτου θήσετε αὐτὸ ἐκ πλαγίων τῆς κιβωτοῦ τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ ἔσται ἐκεῖ ἐν σοὶ εἰς μαρτύριον

27 ὅτι ἐγὼ ἐπίσταμαι τὸν ἐρεθισμόν σου καὶ τὸν τράχηλόν σου τὸν σκληρόν ἔτι γὰρ ἐμοῦ ζῶντος μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν σήμερον παραπικραίνοντες ἦτε τὰ πρὸς τὸν θεόν πῶς οὐχὶ καὶ ἔσχατον τοῦ θανάτου μου

28 ἐκκλησιάσατε πρός με τοὺς φυλάρχους ὑμῶν καὶ τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους ὑμῶν καὶ τοὺς κριτὰς ὑμῶν καὶ τοὺς γραμματοεισαγωγεῖς ὑμῶν ἵνα λαλήσω εἰς τὰ ὦτα αὐτῶν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ διαμαρτύρωμαι αὐτοῖς τόν τε οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν

29 οἶδα γὰρ ὅτι ἔσχατον τῆς τελευτῆς μου ἀνομίᾳ ἀνομήσετε καὶ ἐκκλινεῖτε ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ ἧς ἐνετειλάμην ὑμῖν καὶ συναντήσεται ὑμῖν τὰ κακὰ ἔσχατον τῶν ἡμερῶν ὅτι ποιήσετε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου παροργίσαι αὐτὸν ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις τῶν χειρῶν ὑμῶν

30 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Μωυσῆς εἰς τὰ ὦτα πάσης ἐκκλησίας Ισραηλ τὰ ῥήματα τῆς ᾠδῆς ταύτης ἕως εἰς τέλος

1 Abiit itaque Moyses, et locutus est omnia verba hæc ad universum Israël,

2 et dixit ad eos: Centum viginti annorum sum hodie; non possum ultra egredi et ingredi, præsertim cum et Dominus dixerit mihi: Non transibis Jordanem istum.

3 Dominus ergo Deus tuus transibit ante te: ipse delebit omnes gentes has in conspectu tuo, et possidebis eas: et Josue iste transibit ante te, sicut locutus est Dominus.

4 Facietque Dominus eis sicut fecit Sehon et Og regibus Amorrhæorum, et terræ eorum, delebitque eos.

5 Cum ergo et hos tradiderit vobis, similiter facietis eis, sicut præcepi vobis.

6 Viriliter agite, et confortamini: nolite timere, nec paveatis ad conspectum eorum: quia Dominus Deus tuus ipse est ductor tuus, et non dimittet, nec derelinquet te.

7 Vocavitque Moyses Josue, et dixit ei coram omni Israël: Confortare, et esto robustus: tu enim introduces populum istum in terram, quam daturum se patribus eorum juravit Dominus, et tu eam sorte divides.

8 Et Dominus qui ductor est vester, ipse erit tecum: non dimittet, nec derelinquet te: noli timere, nec paveas.

9 Scripsit itaque Moyses legem hanc, et tradidit eam sacerdotibus filiis Levi, qui portabant arcam fœderis Domini, et cunctis senioribus Israël.

10 Præcepitque eis, dicens: Post septem annos, anno remissionis, in solemnitate tabernaculorum,

11 convenientibus cunctis ex Israël, ut appareant in conspectu Domini Dei tui in loco quem elegerit Dominus, leges verba legis hujus coram omni Israël, audientibus eis,

12 et in unum omni populo congregato, tam viris quam mulieribus, parvulis, et advenis, qui sunt intra portas tuas: ut audientes discant, et timeant Dominum Deum vestrum, et custodiant, impleantque omnes sermones legis hujus.

13 Filii quoque eorum qui nunc ignorant, ut audire possint, et timeant Dominum Deum suum cunctis diebus quibus versantur in terra, ad quam vos, Jordane transmisso, pergitis obtinendam.

14 Et ait Dominus ad Moysen: Ecce prope sunt dies mortis tuæ: voca Josue, et state in tabernaculo testimonii, ut præcipiam ei. Abierunt ergo Moyses et Josue, et steterunt in tabernaculo testimonii:

15 apparuitque Dominus ibi in columna nubis, quæ stetit in introitu tabernaculi.

16 Dixitque Dominus ad Moysen: Ecce tu dormies cum patribus tuis, et populus iste consurgens fornicabitur post deos alienos in terra, ad quam ingreditur ut habitet in ea: ibi derelinquet me, et irritum faciet fœdus, quod pepigi cum eo.

17 Et irascetur furor meus contra eum in die illo: et derelinquam eum, et abscondam faciem meam ab eo, et erit in devorationem: invenient eum omnia mala et afflictiones, ita ut dicat in illo die: Vere quia non est Deus mecum, invenerunt me hæc mala.

18 Ego autem abscondam, et celabo faciem meam in die illo propter omnia mala, quæ fecit, quia secutus est deos alienos.

19 Nunc itaque scribite vobis canticum istud, et docete filios Israël: ut memoriter teneant, et ore decantent, et sit mihi carmen istud pro testimonio inter filios Israël.

20 Introducam enim eum in terram, pro qua juravi patribus ejus, lacte et melle manantem. Cumque comederint, et saturati, crassique fuerint, avertentur ad deos alienos, et servient eis: detrahentque mihi, et irritum facient pactum meum.

21 Postquam invenerint eum mala multa et afflictiones, respondebit ei canticum istud pro testimonio, quod nulla delebit oblivio ex ore seminis sui. Scio enim cogitationes ejus, quæ facturus sit hodie, antequam introducam eum in terram, quam ei pollicitus sum.

22 Scripsit ergo Moyses canticum, et docuit filios Israël.

23 Præcepitque Dominus Josue filio Nun, et ait: Confortare, et esto robustus: tu enim introduces filios Israël in terram, quam pollicitus sum, et ego ero tecum.

24 Postquam ergo scripsit Moyses verba legis hujus in volumine, atque complevit,

25 præcepit Levitis, qui portabant arcam fœderis Domini, dicens:

26 Tollite librum istum, et ponite eum in latere arcæ fœderis Domini Dei vestri: ut sit ibi contra te in testimonium.

27 Ego enim scio contentionem tuam, et cervicem tuam durissimam. Adhuc vivente me et ingrediente vobiscum, semper contentiose egistis contra Dominum: quanto magis cum mortuus fuero?

28 Congregate ad me omnes majores natu per tribus vestras, atque doctores, et loquar audientibus eis sermones istos, et invocabo contra eos cælum et terram.

29 Novi enim quod post mortem meam inique agetis, et declinabitis cito de via, quam præcepi vobis: et occurrent vobis mala in extremo tempore, quando feceritis malum in conspectu Domini, ut irritetis eum per opera manuum vestrarum.

30 Locutus est ergo Moyses, audiente universo cœtu Israël, verba carminis hujus, et ad finem usque complevit.
