Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now this is the mitzvah, the statutes, and the ordinances, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you go over to possess it; 1 These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess,
2 that you might fear the LORD your God, to keep all his statutes and his mitzvot, which I command you, you, and your son, and your son's son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged. 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the LORD your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.
3 Hear therefore, Yisra'el, and observe to do it; that it may be well with you, and that you may increase mightily, as the LORD, the God of your fathers, has promised to you, in a land flowing with milk and honey. 3 Hear, O Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your fathers, promised you.
4 Hear, Yisra'el: the LORD is our God; the LORD is one: 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
5 and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. 5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
6 These words, which I command you this day, shall be on your heart; 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.
7 and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
8 You shall bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be for symbols between your eyes. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
9 You shall write them on the door-posts of your house, and on your gates. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
10 It shall be, when the LORD your God shall bring you into the land which he swore to your fathers, to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Ya`akov, to give you, great and goodly cities, which you didn't build, 10 When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you--a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build,
11 and houses full of all good things, which you didn't fill, and cisterns dug out, which you didn't dig, vineyards and olive trees, which you didn't plant, and you shall eat and be full; 11 houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant--then when you eat and are satisfied,
12 then beware lest you forget the LORD, who brought you forth out of the land of Mitzrayim, out of the house of bondage. 12 be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
13 You shall fear the LORD your God; and him shall you serve, and shall swear by his name. 13 Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.
14 You shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the peoples who are round about you; 14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you;
15 for the LORD your God in the midst of you is a jealous God; lest the anger of the LORD your God be kindled against you, and he destroy you from off the face of the eretz. 15 for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.
16 You shall not tempt the LORD your God, as you tempted him in Massah. 16 Do not test the LORD your God as you did at Massah.
17 You shall diligently keep the mitzvot of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he has commanded you. 17 Be sure to keep the commands of the LORD your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you.
18 You shall do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD; that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land which the LORD swore to your fathers, 18 Do what is right and good in the LORD's sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers,
19 to thrust out all your enemies from before you, as the LORD has spoken. 19 thrusting out all your enemies before you, as the LORD said.
20 When your son asks you in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the ordinances, which the LORD our God has commanded you? 20 In the future, when your son asks you, "What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws the LORD our God has commanded you?"
21 then you shall tell your son, We were Par`oh's bondservants in Mitzrayim: and the LORD brought us out of Mitzrayim with a mighty hand; 21 tell him: "We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
22 and the LORD shown signs and wonders, great and sore, on Mitzrayim, on Par`oh, and on all his house, before our eyes; 22 Before our eyes the LORD sent miraculous signs and wonders--great and terrible--upon Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household.
23 and he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he swore to our fathers. 23 But he brought us out from there to bring us in and give us the land that he promised on oath to our forefathers.
24 The LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as at this day. 24 The LORD commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the LORD our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.
25 It shall be righteousness to us, if we observe to do all this mitzvah before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us. 25 And if we are careful to obey all this law before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness."
