The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 These are the words of the covenant that Jehovah commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant that he made with them in Horeb. 1 These are the terms of the covenant the LORD commanded Moses to make with the Israelites in Moab, in addition to the covenant he had made with them at Horeb.
2 And Moses called to all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that Jehovah did before your eyes in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his bondmen, and to all his land: 2 Moses summoned all the Israelites and said to them: Your eyes have seen all that the LORD did in Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his officials and to all his land.
3 the great trials that thine eyes have seen, those great signs and wonders. 3 With your own eyes you saw those great trials, those miraculous signs and great wonders.
4 But Jehovah hath not given you a heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, to this day. 4 But to this day the LORD has not given you a mind that understands or eyes that see or ears that hear.
5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness; your clothes are not grown old upon you, and thy sandal is not grown old upon thy foot; 5 During the forty years that I led you through the desert, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet.
6 ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink, that ye might know that I am Jehovah your God. 6 You ate no bread and drank no wine or other fermented drink. I did this so that you might know that I am the LORD your God.
7 And ye came to this place; and Sihon the king of Heshbon and Og the king of Bashan came out against us for battle, and we smote them. 7 When you reached this place, Sihon king of Heshbon and Og king of Bashan came out to fight against us, but we defeated them.
8 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of the Manassites. 8 We took their land and gave it as an inheritance to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
9 Ye shall keep then the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do. 9 Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do.
10 Ye stand this day all of you before Jehovah your God: your chiefs [of] your tribes, your elders, and your officers, all the men of Israel, 10 All of you are standing today in the presence of the LORD your God--your leaders and chief men, your elders and officials, and all the other men of Israel,
11 your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy camp, as well the hewer of thy wood as the drawer of thy water; 11 together with your children and your wives, and the aliens living in your camps who chop your wood and carry your water.
12 that thou mayest enter into the covenant of Jehovah thy God, and into his oath, which Jehovah thy God maketh with thee this day; 12 You are standing here in order to enter into a covenant with the LORD your God, a covenant the LORD is making with you this day and sealing with an oath,
13 that he may establish thee this day for a people unto himself, and [that] he may be to thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 13 to confirm you this day as his people, that he may be your God as he promised you and as he swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath, 14 I am making this covenant, with its oath, not only with you
15 but with him that standeth here with us this day before Jehovah our God, and with him that is not here with us this day 15 who are standing here with us today in the presence of the LORD our God but also with those who are not here today.
16 (for ye know how we dwelt in the land of Egypt, and how we came through the nations which ye passed; 16 You yourselves know how we lived in Egypt and how we passed through the countries on the way here.
17 and ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them); 17 You saw among them their detestable images and idols of wood and stone, of silver and gold.
18 lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from Jehovah our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood, 18 Make sure there is no man or woman, clan or tribe among you today whose heart turns away from the LORD our God to go and worship the gods of those nations; make sure there is no root among you that produces such bitter poison.
19 and it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the stubbornness of my heart, to sweep away the drunken with the thirsty. 19 When such a person hears the words of this oath, he invokes a blessing on himself and therefore thinks, "I will be safe, even though I persist in going my own way." This will bring disaster on the watered land as well as the dry.
20 Jehovah will not pardon him, but the anger of Jehovah and his jealousy will then smoke against that man, and all the curse shall be upon him that is written in this book; and Jehovah will blot out his name from under the heavens; 20 The LORD will never be willing to forgive him; his wrath and zeal will burn against that man. All the curses written in this book will fall upon him, and the LORD will blot out his name from under heaven.
21 and Jehovah will separate him for mischief out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that is written in this book of the law. 21 The LORD will single him out from all the tribes of Israel for disaster, according to all the curses of the covenant written in this Book of the Law.
22 And the generation to come, your children who shall rise up after you, and the foreigner that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and its sicknesses wherewith Jehovah hath visited it, 22 Your children who follow you in later generations and foreigners who come from distant lands will see the calamities that have fallen on the land and the diseases with which the LORD has afflicted it.
23 [that] the whole ground thereof is brimstone and salt, [and] burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, and no grass groweth in it, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboim, which Jehovah overthrew in his anger and in his fury: 23 The whole land will be a burning waste of salt and sulfur--nothing planted, nothing sprouting, no vegetation growing on it. It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD overthrew in fierce anger.
24 even all nations shall say, Why has Jehovah done thus to this land? whence the heat of this great anger? 24 All the nations will ask: "Why has the LORD done this to this land? Why this fierce, burning anger?"
25 And men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of Jehovah the God of their fathers, which he had made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt; 25 And the answer will be: "It is because this people abandoned the covenant of the LORD, the God of their fathers, the covenant he made with them when he brought them out of Egypt.
26 and they went and served other gods, and bowed down to them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not assigned to them. 26 They went off and worshiped other gods and bowed down to them, gods they did not know, gods he had not given them.
27 And the anger of Jehovah was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curse that is written in this book; 27 Therefore the LORD's anger burned against this land, so that he brought on it all the curses written in this book.
28 and Jehovah rooted them out of their land in anger, and in fury, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as [it appears] this day. 28 In furious anger and in great wrath the LORD uprooted them from their land and thrust them into another land, as it is now."
29 The hidden things belong to Jehovah our God; but the revealed ones are ours and our children's for ever, to do all the words of this law. 29 The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
