Deuteronomy 32:4-24

BBE 4 He is the Rock, complete is his work; for all his ways are righteousness: a God without evil who keeps faith, true and upright is he. NIV 4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he. BBE 5 They have become false, they are not his children, the mark of sin is on them; they are an evil and hard-hearted generation. NIV 5 They are corrupt and not his children; to their shame they are a warped and crooked generation. BBE 6 Is this your answer to the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? Is he not your father who has given you life? He has made you and given you your place. NIV 6 Is this the way you repay the LORD, you foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator,who made you and formed you? BBE 7 Keep in mind the days of the past, give thought to the years of generations gone by: go to your father and he will make it clear to you, to the old men and they will give you the story. NIV 7 Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you. BBE 8 When the Most High gave the nations their heritage, separating into groups the children of men, he had the limits of the peoples marked out, keeping in mind the number of the children of Israel. NIV 8 When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel. BBE 9 For the Lord's wealth is his people; Jacob is the land of his heritage. NIV 9 For the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance. BBE 10 He came to him in the waste land, in the unpeopled waste of sand: putting his arms round him and caring for him, he kept him as the light 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, BBE 11 As an eagle, teaching her young to make their flight, with her wings outstretched over them, takes them up on her strong feathers: 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 aloft. BBE 12 So the Lord only was his guide, no other god was with him. NIV 12 The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him. BBE 13 He put him on the high places of the earth, his food was the increase of the field; honey he gave him out of the rock and oil out of the hard 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, BBE 14 Butter from his cows and milk from his sheep, with fat of lambs and sheep of Bashan, and goats, and the heart of the grain; and for your drink, wine from the 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. BBE 15 But Jeshurun became fat and would not be controlled: you have become fat, you are thick and full of food: then he was untrue to the God who made him, giving no honour to the Rock of his salvation. NIV 15 Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; filled with food, they became heavy and sleek. They abandoned the God who made them and rejected the Rock their Savior. BBE 16 The honour which was his they gave to strange gods; by their disgusting ways he was moved to wrath. NIV 16 They made him jealous with their foreign gods and angered him with their detestable idols. BBE 17 They made offerings to evil spirits which were not God, to gods who were strange to them, which had newly come up, not feared by your fathers. NIV 17 They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God— gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your ancestors did not fear. BBE 18 You have no thought for the Rock, your father, you have no memory of the God who gave you birth. NIV 18 You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth. BBE 19 And the Lord saw with disgust the evil-doing of his sons and daughters. NIV 19 The LORD saw this and rejected them because he was angered by his sons and daughters. BBE 20 And he said, My face will be veiled from them, I will see what their end will be: for they are an uncontrolled generation, children in whom is no faith. 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. BBE 21 They have given my honour to that which is not God, moving me to wrath with their false worship: I will give their honour to those who are not a people, moving them to wrath by 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. BBE 22 For my wrath is a flaming fire, burning to the deep parts of the underworld, burning up the earth with her increase, and firing the deep roots of the mountains. NIV 22 For a fire will be kindled by my wrath, one that burns down to the realm of the dead below. It will devour the earth and its harvests and set afire the foundations of the mountains. BBE 23 I will send a rain of troubles on them, my arrows will be showered on them. NIV 23 “I will heap calamities on them and spend my arrows against them. BBE 24 They will be wasted from need of food, and overcome by burning heat and bitter destruction; and the teeth of beasts I will send on them, with the poison of the worms of the dust. NIV 24 I will send wasting famine against them, consuming pestilence and deadly plague; I will send against them the fangs of wild beasts, the venom of vipers that glide in the dust.
