Deuteronomy 10

1 At that time the LORD said to me, Hew you two tables of stone like the first, and come up to me onto the mountain, and make a teivah of wood.
2 I will write on the tables the words that were on the first tables which you broke, and you shall put them in the teivah.
3 So I made a teivah of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like the first, and went up onto the mountain, having the two tables in my hand.
4 He wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten mitzvot, which the LORD spoke to you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them to me.
5 I turned and came down from the mountain, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they are as the LORD commanded me.
6 (The children of Yisra'el journeyed from Be'erot Bene-Ya`akan to Moserah. There Aharon died, and there he was buried; and El`azar his son ministered in the Kohen's office in his place.
7 From there they journeyed to Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Yotvatah, a land of brooks of water.
8 At that time the LORD set apart the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister to him, and to bless in his name, to this day.
9 Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brothers; the LORD is his inheritance, according as the LORD your God spoke to him.)
10 I stayed on the mountain, as at the first time, forty days and forty nights: and the LORD listened to me that time also; the LORD would not destroy you.
11 The LORD said to me, Arise, take your journey before the people; and they shall go in and possess the land, which I swore to their fathers to give to them.
12 Now, Yisra'el, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
13 to keep the mitzvot of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command you this day for your good?
14 Behold, to the LORD your God belongs heaven and the heaven of heavens, the eretz, with all that is therein.
15 Only the LORD had a delight in your fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all peoples, as at this day.
16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked.
17 For the LORD your God, he is God of gods, and Lord of lords, the great God, the mighty, and the awesome, who doesn't regard persons, nor takes reward.
18 He does execute justice for the fatherless and widow, and loves the sojourner, in giving him food and clothing.
19 Love you therefore the sojourner; for you were sojourners in the land of Mitzrayim.
20 You shall fear the LORD your God; him shall you serve; and to him shall you cleave, and by his name shall you swear.
21 He is your praise, and he is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things, which your eyes have seen.
22 Your fathers went down into Mitzrayim with seventy persons; and now the LORD your God has made you as the stars of the sky for multitude.
