1 "At that time the LORD said unto me, `Hew thee two tablets of stone like unto the first, and come up unto Me onto the mount, and make thee an ark of wood. 1 At that time the LORD said to me, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones and come up to me on the mountain. Also make a wooden chest.
2 And I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets which thou didst break, and thou shalt put them in the ark.' 2 I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. Then you are to put them in the chest."
3 And I made an ark of shittim wood and hewed two tablets of stone like unto the first, and went up onto the mount, having the two tablets in mine hand. 3 So I made the ark out of acacia wood and chiseled out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I went up on the mountain with the two tablets in my hands.
4 And He wrote on the tablets, according to the first writing, the Ten Commandments, which the LORD spoke unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly; and the LORD gave them unto me. 4 The LORD wrote on these tablets what he had written before, the Ten Commandments he had proclaimed to you on the mountain, out of the fire, on the day of the assembly. And the LORD gave them to me.
5 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tablets in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me." 5 Then I came back down the mountain and put the tablets in the ark I had made, as the LORD commanded me, and they are there now.
6 (And 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. 6 (The Israelites traveled from the wells of the Jaakanites to Moserah. There Aaron died and was buried, and Eleazar his son succeeded him as priest.
7 From thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land of rivers of waters. 7 From there they traveled to Gudgodah and on to Jotbathah, a land with streams of water.
8 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister unto Him, and to bless in His name, unto this day. 8 At that time the LORD set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister and to pronounce blessings in his name, as they still do today.
9 Therefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren; the LORD is his inheritance, according as the LORD thy God promised him.) 9 That is why the Levites have no share or inheritance among their brothers; the LORD is their inheritance, as the LORD your God told them.)
10 "And I stayed on the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also, and the LORD would not destroy thee. 10 Now I had stayed on the mountain forty days and nights, as I did the first time, and the LORD listened to me at this time also. It was not his will to destroy you.
11 And the LORD said unto me, `Arise, take thy journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land which I swore unto their fathers to give unto them.' 11 "Go," the LORD said to me, "and lead the people on their way, so that they may enter and possess the land that I swore to their fathers to give them."
12 "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, 12 And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
13 to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command thee this day for thy good? 13 and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?
14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. 14 To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.
15 Only the LORD 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. 15 Yet the LORD set his affection on your forefathers and loved them, and he chose you, their descendants, above all the nations, as it is today.
16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. 16 Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer.
17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty and a fearsome, who regardeth not persons nor taketh reward. 17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes.
18 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger in giving him food and raiment. 18 He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing.
19 Love ye therefore the stranger, for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. 19 And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens in Egypt.
20 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; Him shalt thou serve, and to Him shalt thou cleave and swear by His name. 20 Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name.
21 He is thy praise, and He is thy God, who hath done for thee these great and fearsome things which thine eyes have seen. 21 He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
22 Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons, and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude. 22 Your forefathers who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the LORD your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky.
