Deuteronomy 10

1At that time  יהוה said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make thee an ark of wood. 2And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark. 3And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand. 4And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which  יהוה spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and  יהוה gave them unto me. 5And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as  יהוה commanded me. 6And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of the children of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his stead. 7From thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters. 8At that time  יהוה separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of  יהוה, to stand before  יהוה to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day. 9Wherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren;  יהוה is his inheritance, according as  יהוה thy Elohim promised him. 10And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights; and  יהוה hearkened unto me at that time also, and  יהוה would not destroy thee. 11And  יהוה said unto me, Arise, take thy journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give unto them. 12And now, Israel, what doth  יהוה thy Elohim require of thee, but to fear  יהוה thy Elohim, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve  יהוה thy Elohim with all thy heart and with all thy soul, 13To keep the commandments of  יהוה, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good? 14Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is  יהוה's thy Elohim, the earth also, with all that therein is. 15Only  יהוה had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. 16Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. 17For  יהוה your Elohim is the mighty one of the elohim , and Sovereign of sovereign, a great El, mighty, and terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh bribes: 18He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. 19Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20Thou shalt fear  יהוה thy Elohim; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. 21He is thy praise, and he is thy Elohim, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. 22Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons; and now  יהוה thy Elohim hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude.
