1Now, Israel, listen to the statutes and to the ordinances, which I teach you, to do them; that you may live, and go in and possess the land which TheIAM (Yahweh) , the God (Elohim) of your fathers, gives you. 2You shall not add to the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish from it, that you may keep the commandments of TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) which I command you. 3Your eyes have seen what TheIAM (Yahweh) did because of Baal Peor; for all the men who followed Baal Peor, TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) has destroyed them from the midst of you. 4But you who did cling to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) are all alive this day. 5Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, even as TheIAM (Yahweh) my God (Elohim) commanded me, that you should do so in the midst of the land where you go in to possess it. 6Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples, who shall hear all these statutes, and say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people." 7For what great nation is there, that has a god (Elohim) so near to them, as TheIAM (Yahweh) our God (Elohim) is whenever we call on him? 8What great nation is there, that has statutes and ordinances so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? 9Only take heed to yourself, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes saw, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your children and your children's children; 10the day that you stood before TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) in Horeb, when TheIAM (Yahweh) said to me, "Assemble me the people, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children." 11You came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire to the heart of the sky, with darkness, cloud, and thick darkness. 12TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to you out of the midst of the fire: you heard the voice of words, but you saw no form; only [you heard] a voice. 13He declared to you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even the ten commandments; and he wrote them on two tables of stone. 14TheIAM (Yahweh) commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and ordinances, that you might do them in the land where you go over to possess it. 15Take therefore good heed to yourselves; for you saw no kind of form on the day that TheIAM (Yahweh) spoke to you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire. 16Lest you corrupt yourselves, and make yourself an engraved image in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female, 17the likeness of any animal that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the sky, 18the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water under the earth; 19and lest you lift up your eyes to the sky, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, even all the army of the sky, you are drawn away and worship them, and serve them, which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) has allotted to all the peoples under the whole sky. 20But TheIAM (Yahweh) has taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be to him a people of inheritance, as at this day. 21Furthermore TheIAM (Yahweh) was angry with me for your sakes, and swore that I should not go over the Jordan, and that I should not go in to that good land, which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) gives you for an inheritance: 22but I must die in this land, I must not go over the Jordan; but you shall go over, and possess that good land. 23Take heed to yourselves, lest you forget the covenant of TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , which he made with you, and make you an engraved image in the form of anything which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) has forbidden you. 24For TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (El) is a devouring fire, a jealous God (Elohim) . 25When you shall father children, and children's children, and you shall have been long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make an engraved image in the form of anything, and shall do that which is evil in the sight of TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , to provoke him to anger; 26I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto you go over the Jordan to possess it; you shall not prolong your days on it, but shall utterly be destroyed. 27TheIAM (Yahweh) will scatter you among the peoples, and you shall be left few in number among the nations, where TheIAM (Yahweh) shall lead you away. 28There you shall serve gods (Elohim) , the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. 29But from there you shall seek TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , and you shall find him, when you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30When you are in oppression, and all these things are come on you, in the latter days you shall return to TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) , and listen to his voice: 31for TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) is a merciful God (El) ; he will not fail you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which he swore to them. 32For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God (Elohim) created man on the earth, and from the one end of the sky to the other, whether there has been [any such thing] as this great thing is, or has been heard like it? 33Did ever a people hear the voice of god (Elohim) speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? 34Or has God (Elohim) tried to go and take him a nation from the midst of [another] nation, by trials, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) did for you in Egypt before your eyes? 35It was shown to you so that you might know that TheIAM (Yahweh) is God (Elohim) . There is no one else besides him. 36Out of heaven he made you to hear his voice, that he might instruct you: and on earth he made you to see his great fire; and you heard his words out of the midst of the fire. 37Because he loved your fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought you out with his presence, with his great power, out of Egypt; 38to drive out nations from before you greater and mightier than you, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as at this day. 39Know therefore this day, and lay it to your heart, that TheIAM (Yahweh) he is God (Elohim) in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is none else. 40You shall keep his statutes, and his commandments, which I command you this day, that it may go well with you, and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land, which TheIAM (Yahweh) your God (Elohim) gives you, forever. 41Then Moses set apart three cities beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise; 42that the manslayer might flee there, who kills his neighbor unawares, and didn't hate him in time past; and that fleeing to one of these cities he might live: 43[namely], Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, for the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, for the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, for the Manassites. 44This is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel: 45these are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which Moses spoke to the children of Israel, when they came forth out of Egypt, 46beyond the Jordan, in the valley over against Beth Peor, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel struck, when they came forth out of Egypt. 47They took his land in possession, and the land of Og king of Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond the Jordan toward the sunrise; 48from Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, even to Mount Sion (the same is Hermon), 49and all the Arabah beyond the Jordan eastward, even to the sea of the Arabah, under the slopes of Pisgah.
1You, son of man, prophesy to the mountains of Israel, and say, You mountains of Israel, hear the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) . 2Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : Because the enemy has said against you, Aha! and, The ancient high places are ours in possession; 3therefore prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : Because, even because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that you might be a possession to the residue of the nations, and you are taken up in the lips of talkers, and the evil report of the people; 4therefore, you mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) to the mountains and to the hills, to the watercourses and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes and to the cities that are forsaken, which are become a prey and derision to the residue of the nations that are all around; 5therefore thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the nations, and against all Edom, that have appointed my land to themselves for a possession with the joy of all their heart, with despite of soul, to cast it out for a prey. 6Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and tell the mountains and to the hills, to the watercourses and to the valleys, Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my wrath, because you have borne the shame of the nations: 7therefore thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : I have sworn, [saying], Surely the nations that are around you, they shall bear their shame. 8But you, mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people Israel; for they are at hand to come. 9For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn into you, and you shall be tilled and sown; 10and I will multiply men on you, all the house of Israel, even all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited, and the waste places shall be built; 11and I will multiply on you man and animal; and they shall increase and be fruitful; and I will cause you to be inhabited after your former estate, and will do better [to you] than at your beginnings: and you shall know that I am TheIAM (Yahweh) . 12Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess you, and you shall be their inheritance, and you shall no more henceforth bereave them of children. 13Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : Because they say to you, You are a devourer of men, and have been a bereaver of your nation; 14therefore you shall devour men no more, neither bereave your nation any more, says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) ; 15neither will I let you hear any more the shame of the nations, neither shall you bear the reproach of the peoples any more, neither shall you cause your nation to stumble any more, says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) . 16Moreover the word of TheIAM (Yahweh) came to me, saying, 17Son of man, when the house of Israel lived in their own land, they defiled it by their way and by their doings: their way before me was as the uncleanness of a woman in her impurity. 18Therefore I poured out my wrath on them for the blood which they had poured out on the land, and because they had defiled it with their idols; 19and I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. 20When they came to the nations, where they went, they profaned my holy name; in that men said of them, These are the people of TheIAM (Yahweh) , and are gone forth out of his land. 21But I had respect for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations, where they went. 22Therefore tell the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : I don't do [this] for your sake, house of Israel, but for my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations, where you went. 23I will sanctify my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am TheIAM (Yahweh) , says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) , when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 24For I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all the countries, and will bring you into your own land. 25I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. 26I will also give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. 27I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my ordinances, and do them. 28You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God (Elohim) . 29I will save you from all your uncleanness: and I will call for the grain, and will multiply it, and lay no famine on you. 30I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that you may receive no more the reproach of famine among the nations. 31Then you shall remember your evil ways, and your doings that were not good; and you shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations. 32Nor for your sake do I [this], says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) , be it known to you: be ashamed and confounded for your ways, house of Israel. 33Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : In the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be built. 34The land that was desolate shall be tilled, whereas it was a desolation in the sight of all who passed by. 35They shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are fortified and inhabited. 36Then the nations that are left around you shall know that I, TheIAM (Yahweh) , have built the ruined places, and planted that which was desolate: I, TheIAM (Yahweh) , have spoken it, and I will do it. 37Thus says the Lord (Adonai) TheIAM (Yahweh) : For this, moreover, will I be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them: I will increase them with men like a flock. 38As the flock for sacrifice, as the flock of Jerusalem in her appointed feasts, so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men; and they shall know that I am TheIAM (Yahweh) .
1When you sit to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before you; 2put a knife to your throat, if you are given (Baal) to appetite. 3Don't be desirous of his dainties, since they are deceitful food. 4Don't weary yourself to be rich. In your wisdom, show restraint. 5Why do you set your eyes on that which is not? For it certainly sprouts wings like an eagle and flies in the sky. 6Don't eat the food of him who has a stingy eye, and don't crave his delicacies: 7for as he thinks about the cost, so he is. "Eat and drink!" he says to you, but his heart is not with you. 8The morsel which you have eaten you shall vomit up, and lose your good words. 9Don't speak in the ears of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words. 10Don't move the ancient boundary stone. Don't encroach on the fields of the fatherless: 11for their Defender is strong. He will plead their case against you. 12Apply your heart to instruction, and your ears to the words of knowledge. 13Don't withhold correction from a child. If you punish him with the rod, he will not die. 14Punish him with the rod, and save his soul from Sheol. 15My son, if your heart is wise, then my heart will be glad, even mine: 16yes, my heart will rejoice, when your lips speak what is right. 17Don't let your heart envy sinners; but rather fear TheIAM (Yahweh) all the day long. 18Indeed surely there is a future hope, and your hope will not be cut off. 19Listen, my son, and be wise, and keep your heart on the right path! 20Don't be among ones drinking too much wine, or those who gorge themselves on meat: 21for the drunkard and the glutton shall become poor; and drowsiness clothes them in rags. 22Listen to your father who gave you life, and don't despise your mother when she is old. 23Buy the truth, and don't sell it. Get wisdom, discipline, and understanding. 24The father of the righteous has great joy. Whoever fathers a wise child delights in him. 25Let your father and your mother be glad! Let her who bore you rejoice! 26My son, give me your heart; and let your eyes keep in my ways. 27For a prostitute is a deep pit; and a wayward wife is a narrow well. 28Yes, she lies in wait like a robber, and increases the unfaithful among men. 29Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? 30Those who stay long at the wine; those who go to seek out mixed wine. 31Don't look at the wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly. 32In the end, it bites like a snake, and poisons like a viper. 33Your eyes will see strange things, and your mind will imagine confusing things. 34Yes, you will be as he who lies down in the midst of the sea, or as he who lies on top of the rigging: 35"They hit me, and I was not hurt! They beat me, and I don't feel it! When will I wake up? I can do it again. I can find another."
12Beware, brothers, lest perhaps there be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God; 13but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called "today;" lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence firm to the end: 15while it is said, "Today if you will hear his voice, don't harden your hearts, as in the rebellion." 16For who, when they heard, rebelled? No, didn't all those who came out of Egypt by Moses? 17With whom was he displeased forty years? Wasn't it with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18To whom did he swear that they wouldn't enter into his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19We see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.
1Let us fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest. 2For indeed we have had good news preached to us, even as they also did, but the word they heard didn't profit them, because it wasn't mixed with faith by those who heard. 3For we who have believed do enter into that rest, even as he has said, "As I swore in my wrath, they will not enter into my rest;" although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4For he has said this somewhere about the seventh day, "God rested on the seventh day from all his works;" 5and in this place again, "They will not enter into my rest." 6Seeing therefore it remains that some should enter therein, and they to whom the good news was before preached failed to enter in because of disobedience, 7he again defines a certain day, today, saying through David so long a time afterward (just as has been said), "Today if you will hear his voice, don't harden your hearts." 8For if Joshua had given them rest, he would not have spoken afterward of another day. 9There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10For he who has entered into his rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from his. 11Let us therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of disobedience. 12For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13There is no creature that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14Having then a great high priest, who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold tightly to our confession. 15For we don't have a high priest who can't be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. 16Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need.
