Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 `And this [is] the command, the statutes and the judgments which Jehovah your God hath commanded to teach you, to do in the land which ye are passing over thither 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 so that thou dost fear Jehovah thy God, to keep all His statutes and His commands, which I am commanding thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all days of thy life, and so that thy days are 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 `And thou hast heard, O Israel, and observed to do, that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest multiply exceedingly, as Jehovah, God of thy fathers, hath spoken to thee, [in] the 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, O Israel, Jehovah our God [is] one Jehovah; 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
5 and thou hast loved Jehovah thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might, 5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
6 and these words which I am commanding thee to-day have been on thine heart, 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.
7 and thou hast repeated them to thy sons, and spoken of them in thy sitting in thine house, and in thy walking in the way, and in thy lying down, and in thy rising 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 and hast bound them for a sign upon thy hand, and they have been for frontlets between thine eyes, 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
9 and thou hast written them on door-posts of thy house, and on thy gates. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
10 `And it hath been, when Jehovah thy God doth bring thee in unto the land which He hath sworn to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to thee -- cities great and good, which thou hast not built, 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 thou hast not filled, and wells digged which thou hast not digged, vineyards and olive-yards which thou hast not planted, and thou hast eaten, and been satisfied; 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 `Take heed to thyself lest thou forget Jehovah who hath brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants; 12 be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
13 Jehovah thy God thou dost fear, and Him thou dost serve, and by His name thou dost swear; 13 Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.
14 ye do 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 a zealous God [is] Jehovah thy God in thy midst -- lest the anger of Jehovah thy God burn against thee, and He hath destroyed thee from off the face of the ground. 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 `Ye do not try Jehovah your God as ye tried in Massah; 16 Do not test the LORD your God as you did at Massah.
17 ye do diligently keep the commands of Jehovah your God, and His testimonies, and His statutes which He hath commanded thee, 17 Be sure to keep the commands of the LORD your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you.
18 and thou hast done that which is right and good in the eyes of Jehovah, so that it is well with thee, and thou hast gone in and possessed the good land which Jehovah hath sworn to thy 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 drive away all thine enemies from thy presence, as Jehovah hath spoken. 19 thrusting out all your enemies before you, as the LORD said.
20 `When thy son asketh thee hereafter, saying, What [are] the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Jehovah our God hath 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 thou hast said to thy son, Servants we have been to Pharaoh in Egypt, and Jehovah bringeth us out of Egypt by a high 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 Jehovah giveth signs and wonders, great and sad, on Egypt, on Pharaoh, 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 us He hath brought out thence, in order to bring us in, to give to us the land which He had sworn 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 And Jehovah commandeth us to do all these statutes, to fear Jehovah our God, for good to ourselves all the days, to keep 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 and righteousness it is for us, when we observe to do all this command before Jehovah our God, as He hath 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."
