1 "At that time Yahweh said to me, 'Carve for yourself two tablets of stone [just] as the former [ones], and come up the mountain to me, and you shall make for yourself an ark of wood. 2 And I will write on the tablets the words that were on the former [tablets], which you smashed, and you must put them in the ark.' 3 And [so] I made an ark {of acacia wood},a and I carved two tablets of stone like the former [ones], and I went up the mountain [with] the two tablets in my hand. 4 And he wrote upon the tablets {according to the first writing},b the ten words that Yahweh spoke to you on the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly, and Yahweh gave them to me. 5 And I turned, and I came down from the mountain, and I put the tablets in the ark that I had made, and they are there, [just] as Yahweh commanded me. 6 "And the {Israelites}c journeyed from [the] wells of Bene-Yaqan [to] Moserah; there Aaron died and was buried, and Eleazar, his son, served as a priest in place of him. 7 From there they journeyed to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land [flowing with] streams of water. 8 At that time Yahweh set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of Yahweh to stand {before}d Yahweh, to serve him and to bless [the people] in his name until this day. 9 Therefore {there was not}e for Levi an allotment or an inheritance [along] with his brothers; [rather] Yahweh [is] his inheritance [just] as Yahweh your God {promised}f to him. 10 And I stayed on the mountain [just] as [during] the former forty daysg and forty nights,h and Yahweh listened to me also on that occasion;i Yahweh was not willing to destroy you. 11 And Yahweh said to me, '{Come, continue}j your journey {before the people}, k so that you may go and take possession of the land that I swore to their ancestorsl to give to them.' 12 And now, Israel, what [is] Yahweh your God askingm from you, exceptn to revere Yahweh your God, to goo in all his ways and to love him and to serve Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul,p 13 to keep the commandments of Yahweh and his statutes that I am commanding you today {for your own good}.q 14 Look! For to Yahweh your God {belong}r heaven and the {highest heavens},s the earth and all that [is] in it. 15 {Yet}t to your ancestorsu Yahweh was very attached, [so as to] love them, and [so] he chose their offspring after them, [namely] you, from all the peoples, as it is {today}.v 16 So you shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and {do not be stubborn}.w 17 For Yahweh your God, he [is] God of the gods and Lord of the lords, the great and mighty God, the awesome [one] who {is not partial},x and he does not take bribes. 18 [And he] executes justice for the orphan and widow, and [he is] one who loves [the] alien, to give to them food and clothing. 19 And you shall love the alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt. 20 Yahweh your God, you shall revere him, you shall serve him, and to him you shall cling, and by his name you shall swear. 21 He [is] your praise, and he [is] your God, who has done with you these great and awesome [things] that your eyes have seen. 22 With [only] seventy persons your ancestorsy went down to Egypt, but now Yahweh your God has made you as the stars of the heaven {with respect to multitude}.z
