Deuteronomy 321Give ear, you heavens, and I will speak.
Let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
2My doctrine shall drop as the rain.
My speech shall condense as the dew,
as the small rain on the tender grass,
as the showers on the herb.
3For I will proclaim the name of the Lord.
Ascribe greatness to our God!
4The Rock, his work is perfect,
for all his ways are justice:
a God of faithfulness and without iniquity,
just and right is he.
5They have dealt corruptly with him. They are not his children, because of their defect.
They are a perverse and crooked generation.
6Do you thus requite the Lord,
foolish people and unwise?
Isn't he your father who has bought you?
He has made you, and established you.
7Remember the days of old.
Consider the years of many generations.
Ask your father, and he will show you;
your elders, and they will tell you.
8When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance,
when he separated the children of men,
he set the bounds of the peoples
according to the number of the children of Israel.
9For the Lord's portion is his people.
Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
10He found him in a desert land,
in the waste howling wilderness.
He surrounded him.
He cared for him.
He kept him as the apple of his eye.
11As an eagle that stirs up her nest,
that flutters over her young,
he spread abroad his wings, he took them,
he bore them on his feathers.
12The Lord alone led him.
There was no foreign god with him.
13He made him ride on the high places of the earth.
He ate the increase of the field.
He caused him to suck honey out of the rock,
oil out of the flinty rock;
14Butter of the herd, and milk of the flock,
with fat of lambs,
rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats,
with the finest of the wheat.
Of the blood of the grape you drank wine.
15But Jeshurun grew fat, and kicked.
You have grown fat.
You have grown thick.
You have become sleek.
Then he forsook God who made him,
and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
16They moved him to jealousy with strange gods.
They provoked him to anger with abominations.
17They sacrificed to demons, not God,
to gods that they did not know,
to new gods that came up recently,
which your fathers did not dread.
18Of the Rock who became your father, you are unmindful,
and have forgotten God who gave you birth.
19The Lord saw and abhorred,
because of the provocation of his sons and his daughters.
20He said, "I will hide my face from them.
I will see what their end shall be;
for they are a very perverse generation,
children in whom is no faithfulness.
21They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God.
They have provoked me to anger with their vanities.
I will move them to jealousy with those who are not a people.
I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. ▼
22For a fire is kindled in my anger,
Burns to the lowest Sheol ▼
▼Sheol is the place of the dead,
Devours the earth with its increase,
and sets the foundations of the mountains on fire.
23"I will heap evils on them.
I will spend my arrows on them.
24They shall be wasted with hunger, and devoured with burning heat
and bitter destruction.
I will send the teeth of animals on them,
With the poison of crawling things of the dust.
25Outside the sword shall bereave,
and in the rooms, terror;
on both young man and virgin,
The nursing infant with the gray-haired man.
26I said, I would scatter them afar.
I would make their memory to cease from among men;
27were it not that I feared the provocation of the enemy,
lest their adversaries should judge wrongly,
lest they should say, 'Our hand is exalted,
the Lord has not done all this.'"
28For they are a nation void of counsel.
There is no understanding in them.
29Oh that they were wise, that they understood this,
that they would consider their latter end!
30How could one chase a thousand,
and two put ten thousand to flight,
unless their Rock had sold them,
and the Lord had delivered them up?
31For their rock is not as our Rock,
even our enemies themselves being judges.
32For their vine is of the vine of Sodom,
of the fields of Gomorrah.
Their grapes are grapes of gall,
Their clusters are bitter.
33Their wine is the poison of serpents,
The cruel venom of asps.
34"Isn't this laid up in store with me,
sealed up among my treasures?
35Vengeance is mine, and I will repay, ▼
▼LXX Vg. MT lacks "I will." Romans 12:19; Hebrews 10:30
at the time when their foot slides;
for the day of their calamity is at hand.
The things that are to come on them shall make haste."
36For the Lord will judge his people,
and have compassion on his servants,
when he sees that their power is gone,
There is none remaining, shut up or left at large.
37He will say, "Where are their gods,
The rock in which they took refuge;
38Which ate the fat of their sacrifices,
And drank the wine of their drink offering?
Let them rise up and help you!
Let them be your protection.
39"See now that I, even I, am he,
There is no god with me.
I kill, and I make alive.
I wound, and I heal.
There is no one who can deliver out of my hand.
40For I lift up my hand to heaven,
And say, As I live forever,
41if I whet my glittering sword,
My hand take hold on judgment;
I will render vengeance to my adversaries,
and will recompense those who hate me.
42I will make my arrows drunk with blood.
My sword shall devour flesh with the blood of the slain and the captives,
from the head of the leaders of the enemy."
43Rejoice, O heavens, with him, and let all the angels ▼
▼DSS (Hebrew: "elohim"). LXX reads "sons" instead of "elohim"of God worship him.
Rejoice, O nations, with his people, and let all the angels of God strengthen themselves in him. ▼
▼LXXFor he will avenge the blood of his sons, ▼
▼DSS LXX. MT: "servents"and render vengeance to his enemies, and will recompense them that hate him, ▼
▼DSS LXX. MT lacks "and will recompense them that hate him"and will cleanse the land for his people. ▼
▼DSS LXX SP. MT reads "his land and his people" instead of "the land for/of his people"
44Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he and Joshua the son of Nun. 45Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel; 46He said to them, "Set your heart to all the words which I testify to you this day, which you shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. 47For it is no vain thing for you; because it is your life, and through this thing you shall prolong your days in the land, where you go over the Jordan to possess it."
48The Lord spoke to Moses that same day, saying, 49"Go up into this mountain of Abarim, to Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and see the land of Canaan, which I give to the children of Israel for a possession; 50and die on the mountain where you go up, and be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother died on Mount Hor, and was gathered to his people: 51because you trespassed against me in the midst of the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah of Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because you did not sanctify me in the midst of the children of Israel. 52For you shall see the land before you; but you shall not go there into the land which I give the children of Israel."
