TMB 2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distill as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass.

TMB 4 "He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are judgment, a God of truth and without iniquity; just and right is He.

NIV 5 They have acted corruptly toward him; to their shame they are no longer his children, but a warped and crooked generation. TMB 6 "Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? Is not He thy father that hath bought thee? Hath He not made thee and established thee? NIV 6 Is this the way you repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you? TMB 7 Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations. Ask thy father, and he will show thee, thy elders, and they will tell thee. NIV 7 Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past.

TMB 10 "He found him in a desert land and in the waste howling wilderness; He led him about, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. NIV 10 In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye, TMB 11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings, NIV 11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions. TMB 12 so the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. NIV 12 The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him. TMB 13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and He made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; NIV 13 He made him ride on the heights of the land and fed him with the fruit of the fields. He nourished him with honey from the rock, and with oil from the flinty crag, TMB 14 butter of cows and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape. NIV 14 with curds and milk from herd and flock and with fattened lambs and goats, with choice rams of Bashan and the finest kernels of wheat. You drank the foaming blood of the grape. TMB 15 "But Jeshurun waxed fat and kicked; thou hast waxed fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness. Then he forsook God who made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. NIV 15 Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; filled with food, he became heavy and sleek. He abandoned the God who made him and rejected the Rock his Savior. TMB 16 They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods; with abominations provoked they Him to anger. NIV 16 They made him jealous with their foreign gods and angered him with their detestable idols. TMB 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God, to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. NIV 17 They sacrificed to demons, which are not God-- gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your fathers did not fear. TMB 18 Of the Rock that begot thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. NIV 18 You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth. TMB 19 "And when the LORD saw it, He abhorred them, because of the provoking of His sons and of His daughters. NIV 19 The LORD saw this and rejected them because he was angered by his sons and daughters.

NIV 20 "I will hide my face from them," he said, "and see what their end will be; for they are a perverse generation, children who are unfaithful. TMB 21 They have moved Me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities. And I will move them to jealousy with those who are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. NIV 21 They made me jealous by what is no god and angered me with their worthless idols. I will make them envious by those who are not a people; I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding. TMB 22 For a fire is kindled in Mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

NIV 25 In the street the sword will make them childless; in their homes terror will reign. Young men and young women will perish, infants and gray-haired men. TMB 26 I said I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men, NIV 26 I said I would scatter them and blot out their memory from mankind, TMB 27 were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, "Our hand is high; and the LORD hath not done all this."' NIV 27 but I dreaded the taunt of the enemy, lest the adversary misunderstand and say, 'Our hand has triumphed; the LORD has not done all this.' " TMB 28 "For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. NIV 28 They are a nation without sense, there is no discernment in them. TMB 29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! NIV 29 If only they were wise and would understand this and discern what their end will be! TMB 30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up? NIV 30 How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?

TMB 34 "`Is not this laid up in store with Me, and sealed up among My treasures? NIV 34 "Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults? TMB 35 To Me belongeth vengeance and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.' NIV 35 It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them." TMB 36 "For the LORD shall judge His people and repent for His servants, when He seeth that their power is gone and there is none shut up or left. NIV 36 The LORD will judge his people and have compassion on his servants when he sees their strength is gone and no one is left, slave or free.

TMB 42 I will make Mine arrows drunk with blood, and My sword shall devour flesh, and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.' NIV 42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, while my sword devours flesh: the blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders." TMB 43 "Rejoice, O ye nations, with His people; for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and will render vengeance to His adversaries, and will be merciful unto His land and to His people."

NIV 44 Moses came with Joshua son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people. TMB 45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel, NIV 45 When Moses finished reciting all these words to all Israel, TMB 46 and he said unto them: "Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. NIV 46 he said to them, "Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. TMB 47 For it is not a vain thing for you, because it is your life; and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land whither ye go over the Jordan to possess it." NIV 47 They are not just idle words for you--they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess." TMB 48 And the LORD spoke unto Moses that selfsame day, saying, NIV 48 On that same day the LORD told Moses, TMB 49 "Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab that is opposite Jericho, and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession. NIV 49 "Go up into the Abarim Range to Mount Nebo in Moab, across from Jericho, and view Canaan, the land I am giving the Israelites as their own possession. TMB 50 And die on the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother died on Mount Hor and was gathered unto his people, NIV 50 There on the mountain that you have climbed you will die and be gathered to your people, just as your brother Aaron died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people. TMB 51 because ye trespassed against Me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh in the Wilderness of Zin, because ye sanctified Me not in the midst of the children of Israel. NIV 51 This is because both of you broke faith with me in the presence of the Israelites at the waters of Meribah Kadesh in the Desert of Zin and because you did not uphold my holiness among the Israelites. TMB 52 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee, but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel." NIV 52 Therefore, you will see the land only from a distance; you will not enter the land I am giving to the people of Israel."
