Deuteronomy 4

RHE 1 And now, O Israel, hear the commandments and judgments which I teach thee: that doing them, thou mayst live, and entering in mayst possess the land which the Lord the God of your fathers will give you. NIV 1 Now, Israel, hear the decrees and laws I am about to teach you. Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land the LORD, the God of your ancestors, is giving you. RHE 2 You shall not add to the word that I speak to you, neither shall you take away from it: keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. NIV 2 Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you. RHE 3 Your eyes have seen all that the Lord hath done against Beelphegor, how he hath destroyed all his worshippers from among you. NIV 3 You saw with your own eyes what the LORD did at Baal Peor. The LORD your God destroyed from among you everyone who followed the Baal of Peor, RHE 4 But you that adhere to the Lord your God, are all alive until this present day. NIV 4 but all of you who held fast to the LORD your God are still alive today. RHE 5 You know that I have taught you statutes and justices, as the Lord my God hath commanded me: so shall you do them in the land which you shall possess: NIV 5 See, I have taught you decrees and laws as the LORD my God commanded me, so that you may follow them in the land you are entering to take possession of it. RHE 6 And you shall observe, and fulfil them in practice. For this is your wisdom, and understanding in the sight of nations, that hearing all these precepts, they may say: Behold a wise and understanding people, a great nation. NIV 6 Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.” RHE 7 Neither is there any other nation so great, that hath gods so nigh them, as our God is present to all our petitions. NIV 7 What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the LORD our God is near us whenever we pray to him? RHE 8 For what other nation is there so renowned that hath ceremonies, and just judgments, and all the law, which I will set forth this day before our eyes? NIV 8 And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today? RHE 9 Keep thyself therefore, and thy soul carefully. Forget not the words that thy eyes have seen, and let them not go out of thy heart all the days of thy life. Thou shalt teach them to thy sons and to thy grandsons, NIV 9 Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. RHE 10 From the day in which thou didst stand before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord spoke to me, saying: Call together the people unto me, that they may hear my words, and may learn to fear me all the time that they live on the earth, and may teach their children. NIV 10 Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb, when he said to me, “Assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn to revere me as long as they live in the land and may teach them to their children.” RHE 11 And you came to the foot of the mount, which burned even unto heaven: and there was darkness, and a cloud and obscurity in it. NIV 11 You came near and stood at the foot of the mountain while it blazed with fire to the very heavens, with black clouds and deep darkness. RHE 12 And the Lord spoke to you from the midst of the fire. You heard the voice of his words, but you saw not any form at all. NIV 12 Then the LORD spoke to you out of the fire. You heard the sound of words but saw no form; there was only a voice. RHE 13 And he shewed you his covenant, which he commanded you to do, and the ten words that he wrote in two tables of stone. NIV 13 He declared to you his covenant, the Ten Commandments, which he commanded you to follow and then wrote them on two stone tablets. RHE 14 And he commanded me at that time that I should teach you the ceremonies and judgments which you shall do in the land, that you shall possess. NIV 14 And the LORD directed me at that time to teach you the decrees and laws you are to follow in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. RHE 15 Keep therefore your souls carefully. You saw not any similitude in the day that the Lord God spoke to you in Horeb from the midst of the fire: NIV 15 You saw no form of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, RHE 16 Lest perhaps being deceived you might make you a graven similitude, or image of male or female, NIV 16 so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, RHE 17 The similitude of any beasts, that are upon the earth, or of birds, that fly under heaven, NIV 17 or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, RHE 18 Or of creeping things, that move on the earth, or of fishes, that abide in the waters under the earth: NIV 18 or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below. RHE 19 Lest perhaps lifting up thy eyes to heaven, thou see the sun and the moon, and all the stars of heaven, and being deceived by error thou adore and serve them, which the Lord thy God created for the service of all the nations, that are under heaven. NIV 19 And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. RHE 20 But the Lord hath taken you and brought you out of the iron furnaces of Egypt, to make you his people of inheritance, as it is this present day. NIV 20 But as for you, the LORD took you and brought you out of the iron-smelting furnace, out of Egypt, to be the people of his inheritance, as you now are. RHE 21 And the Lord was angry with me for your words, and he swore that I should not pass over the Jordan, nor enter into the excellent land, which he will give you. NIV 21 The LORD was angry with me because of you, and he solemnly swore that I would not cross the Jordan and enter the good land the LORD your God is giving you as your inheritance. RHE 22 Behold I die in this land, I shall not pass over the Jordan: you shall pass, and possess the goodly land. NIV 22 I will die in this land; I will not cross the Jordan; but you are about to cross over and take possession of that good land. RHE 23 Beware lest thou ever forget the covenant of the Lord thy God, which he hath made with thee: and make to thyself a graven likeness of those things which the Lord hath forbid to be made: NIV 23 Be careful not to forget the covenant of the LORD your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the LORD your God has forbidden. RHE 24 Because the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. NIV 24 For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. RHE 25 If you shall beget sons and grandsons, and abide in the land, and being deceived, make to yourselves any similitude, committing evil before the Lord your God, to provoke him to wrath: NIV 25 After you have had children and grandchildren and have lived in the land a long time—if you then become corrupt and make any kind of idol, doing evil in the eyes of the LORD your God and arousing his anger, RHE 26 I call this day heaven and earth to witness, that you shall quickly perish out of the land, which, when you have passed over the Jordan, you shall possess. You shall not dwell therein long, but the Lord will destroy you, NIV 26 I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you this day that you will quickly perish from the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. You will not live there long but will certainly be destroyed. RHE 27 And scatter you among all nations, and you shall remain a few among the nations, to which the Lord shall lead you. NIV 27 The LORD will scatter you among the peoples, and only a few of you will survive among the nations to which the LORD will drive you. RHE 28 And there you shall serve gods, that were framed with men’s hands: wood and stone, that neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. NIV 28 There you will worship man-made gods of wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or eat or smell. RHE 29 And when thou shalt seek there the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him: yet so, if thou seek him with all thy heart, and all the affliction of thy soul. NIV 29 But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul. RHE 30 After all the things aforesaid shall find thee, in the latter time thou shalt return to the Lord thy God, and shalt hear his voice. NIV 30 When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the LORD your God and obey him. RHE 31 Because the Lord thy God is a merciful God: he will not leave thee, nor altogether destroy thee, nor forget the covenant, by which he swore to thy fathers. NIV 31 For the LORD your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath. RHE 32 Ask of the days of old, that have been before thy time from the day that God created man upon the earth, from one end of heaven to the other end thereof, if ever there was done the like thing, or it hath been known at any time, NIV 32 Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created human beings on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of? RHE 33 That a people should hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of fire, as thou hast heard, and lived: NIV 33 Has any other people heard the voice of God speaking out of fire, as you have, and lived? RHE 34 If God ever did so as to go, and take to himself a nation out of the midst of nations by temptations, signs, and wonders, by fight, and a strong hand, and stretched out arm, and horrible visions according to all the things that the Lord your God did for you in Egypt, before thy eyes. NIV 34 Has any god ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation, by testings, by signs and wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, or by great and awesome deeds, like all the things the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes? RHE 35 That thou mightest know that the Lord he is God, and there is no other besides him. NIV 35 You were shown these things so that you might know that the LORD is God; besides him there is no other. RHE 36 From heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might teach thee. And upon earth he shewed thee his exceeding great fire, and thou didst hear his words out of the midst of the fire, NIV 36 From heaven he made you hear his voice to discipline you. On earth he showed you his great fire, and you heard his words from out of the fire. RHE 37 Because he loved thy fathers, and chose their seed after them. And he brought thee out of Egypt, going before thee with his great power, NIV 37 Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants after them, he brought you out of Egypt by his Presence and his great strength, RHE 38 To destroy at thy coming very great nations, and stronger than thou art, and to bring thee in, and give thee their land for a possession, as thou seest at this present day. NIV 38 to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today. RHE 39 Know therefore this day, and think in thy heart that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and in the earth beneath, and there is no other. NIV 39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below. There is no other. RHE 40 Keep his precepts and commandments, which I command thee: that it may be well with thee, and thy children after thee, and thou mayst remain a long time upon the land, which the Lord thy God will give thee. NIV 40 Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the LORD your God gives you for all time. RHE 41 Then Moses set aside three cities beyond the Jordan at the east side, NIV 41 Then Moses set aside three cities east of the Jordan, RHE 42 That any one might flee to them who should kill his neighbour unwillingly, and was not his enemy a day or two before, and that he might escape to some one of these cities: NIV 42 to which anyone who had killed a person could flee if they had unintentionally killed a neighbor without malice aforethought. They could flee into one of these cities and save their life. RHE 43 Bosor in the wilderness, which is situate in the plains of the tribe of Ruben: and Ramoth in Galaad, which is in the tribe of Gad: and Golan in Basan, which is in the tribe of Manasses. NIV 43 The cities were these: Bezer in the wilderness plateau, for the Reubenites; Ramoth in Gilead, for the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, for the Manassites. RHE 44 This is the law, that Moses set before the children of Israel, NIV 44 This is the law Moses set before the Israelites. RHE 45 And these are the testimonies and ceremonies and judgments, which he spoke to the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt, NIV 45 These are the stipulations, decrees and laws Moses gave them when they came out of Egypt RHE 46 Beyond the Jordan in the valley over against the temple of Phogor, in the land of Sehon king of the Amorrhites, that dwelt in Hesebon, whom Moses slew. And the children of Israel coming out of Egypt, NIV 46 and were in the valley near Beth Peor east of the Jordan, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon and was defeated by Moses and the Israelites as they came out of Egypt. RHE 47 Possessed his land, and the land of Og king of Basan, of the two kings of the Amorrhites, who were beyond the Jordan towards the rising of the sun: NIV 47 They took possession of his land and the land of Og king of Bashan, the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan. RHE 48 From Aroer, which is situate upon the bank of the torrent Arnon, unto mount Sion, which is also called Hermon, NIV 48 This land extended from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Gorge to Mount Sirion (that is, Hermon), RHE 49 All the plain beyond the Jordan at the east side, unto the sea of the wilderness, and unto the foot of mount Phasga. NIV 49 and included all the Arabah east of the Jordan, as far as the Dead Sea, below the slopes of Pisgah.
