Deuteronomy 51 Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, Hear, Israel, the statutes and the ordinances which I speak in your ears this day, that you may learn them, and observe to do them. 2 Jehovah our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. 3 Jehovah did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive this day. 4 Jehovah spoke with you face to face on the mountain out of the midst of the fire, 5 (I stood between Jehovah and you at that time, to show you the words ▼
▼ DSS LXX SP P Vg. MT reads "word"of Jehovah: for you were afraid because of the fire, and did not go up onto the mountain;) saying, 6 "I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
7 "You shall have no other gods before me.
8 "You shall not make an engraved image for yourself, or ▼
▼ DSS LXX SP. MT omits "or"any likeness of what is in heaven above, or what is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 9 you shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them; for I, Jehovah, your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, to ▼
▼ DSS LXX SP. MT reads "and to"the third and on the fourth generation of those who hate me; 10 and showing loving kindness to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
11 "You shall not take the name of Jehovah your God in vain: for Jehovah will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
12 "Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as Jehovah your God commanded you. 13 You shall labor six days, and do all your work; 14 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Jehovah your God, in which you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your livestock, nor your stranger who is within your gates; that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. 15 You shall remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and Jehovah your God brought you out of there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm: therefore Jehovah your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
16 "Honor your father and your mother, ▼

22 These words Jehovah spoke to all your assembly on the mountain out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. He wrote them on two tables of stone, and gave them to me. 23 It happened, when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders; 24 and you said, "Behold, Jehovah our God has shown us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God does speak with man, and he lives. 25 Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of Jehovah our God any more, then we shall die. 26 For who is there of all flesh, that has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? 27 Go near, and hear all that Jehovah our God shall say: and tell us all that Jehovah our God shall tell you; and we will hear it, and do it."
28 Jehovah heard the voice of your words, when you spoke to me; and Jehovah said to me, "I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken to you: they have well said all that they have spoken. 29 Oh that there were such a heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep my ▼
▼ DSS MTms LXX SP. MT reads "keep all my" instead of "keep my"commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children forever!
30 "Go tell them, Return to your tents. 31 But as for you, stand here by me, and I will tell you all the commandment, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which you shall teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it."
32 You shall observe to do therefore as Jehovah your God has commanded you: you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. 33 You shall walk in all the way which Jehovah your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess.
