1 Then Moses and the elders of Israel charged all the people as follows: Keep the entire commandment that I am commanding you today. 1 Moses and the elders of Israel commanded the people: "Keep all these commands that I give you today.
2 On the day that you cross over the Jordan into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall set up large stones and cover them with plaster. 2 When you have crossed the Jordan into the land the LORD your God is giving you, set up some large stones and coat them with plaster.
3 You shall write on them all the words of this law when you have crossed over, to enter the land that the Lord your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you. 3 Write on them all the words of this law when you have crossed over to enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your fathers, promised you.
4 So when you have crossed over the Jordan, you shall set up these stones, about which I am commanding you today, on Mount Ebal, and you shall cover them with plaster. 4 And when you have crossed the Jordan, set up these stones on Mount Ebal, as I command you today, and coat them with plaster.
5 And you shall build an altar there to the Lord your God, an altar of stones on which you have not used an iron tool. 5 Build there an altar to the LORD your God, an altar of stones. Do not use any iron tool upon them.
6 You must build the altar of the Lord your God of unhewn stones. Then offer up burnt offerings on it to the Lord your God, 6 Build the altar of the LORD your God with fieldstones and offer burnt offerings on it to the LORD your God.
7 make sacrifices of well-being, and eat them there, rejoicing before the Lord your God. 7 Sacrifice fellowship offerings there, eating them and rejoicing in the presence of the LORD your God.
8 You shall write on the stones all the words of this law very clearly. 8 And you shall write very clearly all the words of this law on these stones you have set up."
9 Then Moses and the levitical priests spoke to all Israel, saying: Keep silence and hear, O Israel! This very day you have become the people of the Lord your God. 9 Then Moses and the priests, who are Levites, said to all Israel, "Be silent, O Israel, and listen! You have now become the people of the LORD your God.
10 Therefore obey the Lord your God, observing his commandments and his statutes that I am commanding you today. 10 Obey the LORD your God and follow his commands and decrees that I give you today."
11 The same day Moses charged the people as follows: 11 On the same day Moses commanded the people:
