Deuteronomy 9

GNT 1 "Listen, people of Israel! Today you are about to cross the Jordan River and occupy the land belonging to nations greater and more powerful than you. Their cities are large, with walls that reach the sky. NIV 1 Hear, Israel: You are now about to cross the Jordan to go in and dispossess nations greater and stronger than you, with large cities that have walls up to the sky. GNT 2 The people themselves are tall and strong; they are giants, and you have heard it said that no one can stand against them. NIV 2 The people are strong and tall—Anakites! You know about them and have heard it said: “Who can stand up against the Anakites?” GNT 3 But now you will see for yourselves that the Lord your God will go ahead of you like a raging fire. He will defeat them as you advance, so that you will drive them out and destroy them quickly, as he promised. NIV 3 But be assured today that the LORD your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the LORD has promised you. GNT 4 "After the Lord your God has driven them out for you, do not say to yourselves that he brought you in to possess this land because you deserved it. No, the Lord is going to drive these people out for you because they are wicked. NIV 4 After the LORD your God has driven them out before you, do not say to yourself, “The LORD has brought me here to take possession of this land because of my righteousness.” No, it is on account of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is going to drive them out before you. GNT 5 It is not because you are good and do what is right that the Lord is letting you take their land. He will drive them out because they are wicked and because he intends to keep the promise that he made to your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. NIV 5 It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land; but on account of the wickedness of these nations, the LORD your God will drive them out before you, to accomplish what he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. GNT 6 You can be sure that the Lord is not giving you this fertile land because you deserve it. No, you are a stubborn people. NIV 6 Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people. GNT 7 "Never forget how you made the Lord your God angry in the desert. From the day that you left Egypt until the day you arrived here, you have rebelled against him. NIV 7 Remember this and never forget how you aroused the anger of the LORD your God in the wilderness. From the day you left Egypt until you arrived here, you have been rebellious against the LORD. GNT 8 Even at Mount Sinai you made the Lord angry - angry enough to destroy you. NIV 8 At Horeb you aroused the LORD’s wrath so that he was angry enough to destroy you. GNT 9 I went up the mountain to receive the stone tablets on which was written the covenant that the Lord had made with you. I stayed there forty days and nights and did not eat or drink anything. NIV 9 When I went up on the mountain to receive the tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant that the LORD had made with you, I stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights; I ate no bread and drank no water. GNT 10 Then the Lord gave me the two stone tablets on which he had written with his own hand what he had said to you from the fire on the day that you were gathered there at the mountain. NIV 10 The LORD gave me two stone tablets inscribed by the finger of God. On them were all the commandments the LORD proclaimed to you on the mountain out of the fire, on the day of the assembly. GNT 11 Yes, after those forty days and nights the Lord gave me the two stone tablets on which he had written the covenant. NIV 11 At the end of the forty days and forty nights, the LORD gave me the two stone tablets, the tablets of the covenant. GNT 12 "Then the Lord said to me, "Go down the mountain at once, because your people, whom you led out of Egypt, have become corrupt and have done evil. They have already turned away from what I commanded them to do, and they have made an idol for themselves.' NIV 12 Then the LORD told me, “Go down from here at once, because your people whom you brought out of Egypt have become corrupt. They have turned away quickly from what I commanded them and have made an idol for themselves.” GNT 13 "The Lord also said to me, "I know how stubborn these people are. NIV 13 And the LORD said to me, “I have seen this people, and they are a stiff-necked people indeed! GNT 14 Don't try to stop me. I intend to destroy them so that no one will remember them any longer. Then I will make you the father of a nation larger and more powerful than they are.' NIV 14 Let me alone, so that I may destroy them and blot out their name from under heaven. And I will make you into a nation stronger and more numerous than they.” GNT 15 "So I turned and went down the mountain, carrying the two stone tablets on which the covenant was written. Flames of fire were coming from the mountain. NIV 15 So I turned and went down from the mountain while it was ablaze with fire. And the two tablets of the covenant were in my hands. GNT 16 I saw that you had already disobeyed the command that the Lord your God had given you, and that you had sinned against him by making yourselves a metal idol in the form of a bull-calf. NIV 16 When I looked, I saw that you had sinned against the LORD your God; you had made for yourselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. You had turned aside quickly from the way that the LORD had commanded you. GNT 17 So there in front of you I threw the stone tablets down and broke them to pieces. NIV 17 So I took the two tablets and threw them out of my hands, breaking them to pieces before your eyes. GNT 18 Then once again I lay face downward in the Lord's presence for forty days and nights and did not eat or drink anything. I did this because you had sinned against the Lord and had made him angry. NIV 18 Then once again I fell prostrate before the LORD for forty days and forty nights; I ate no bread and drank no water, because of all the sin you had committed, doing what was evil in the LORD’s sight and so arousing his anger. GNT 19 I was afraid of the Lord's fierce anger, because he was furious enough to destroy you; but once again the Lord listened to me. NIV 19 I feared the anger and wrath of the LORD, for he was angry enough with you to destroy you. But again the LORD listened to me. GNT 20 The Lord was also angry enough with Aaron to kill him, so I prayed for Aaron at the same time. NIV 20 And the LORD was angry enough with Aaron to destroy him, but at that time I prayed for Aaron too. GNT 21 I took that sinful thing that you had made - that metal bull-calf - and threw it into the fire. Then I broke it in pieces, ground it to dust, and threw the dust into the stream that flowed down the mountain. NIV 21 Also I took that sinful thing of yours, the calf you had made, and burned it in the fire. Then I crushed it and ground it to powder as fine as dust and threw the dust into a stream that flowed down the mountain. GNT 22 "You also made the Lord your God angry when you were at Taberah, Massah, and Kibroth Hattaavah. NIV 22 You also made the LORD angry at Taberah, at Massah and at Kibroth Hattaavah. GNT 23 And when he sent you from Kadesh Barnea with orders to go and take possession of the land that he was giving you, you rebelled against him; you did not trust him or obey him. NIV 23 And when the LORD sent you out from Kadesh Barnea, he said, “Go up and take possession of the land I have given you.” But you rebelled against the command of the LORD your God. You did not trust him or obey him. GNT 24 Ever since I have known you, you have rebelled against the Lord. NIV 24 You have been rebellious against the LORD ever since I have known you. GNT 25 "So I lay face downward in the Lord's presence those forty days and nights, because I knew that he was determined to destroy you. NIV 25 I lay prostrate before the LORD those forty days and forty nights because the LORD had said he would destroy you. GNT 26 And I prayed, "Sovereign Lord, don't destroy your own people, the people you rescued and brought out of Egypt by your great strength and power. NIV 26 I prayed to the LORD and said, “Sovereign LORD, do not destroy your people, your own inheritance that you redeemed by your great power and brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand. GNT 27 Remember your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and do not pay any attention to the stubbornness, wickedness, and sin of this people. NIV 27 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Overlook the stubbornness of this people, their wickedness and their sin. GNT 28 Otherwise, the Egyptians will say that you were unable to take your people into the land that you had promised them. They will say that you took your people out into the desert to kill them, because you hated them. NIV 28 Otherwise, the country from which you brought us will say, ‘Because the LORD was not able to take them into the land he had promised them, and because he hated them, he brought them out to put them to death in the wilderness.’ GNT 29 After all, these are the people whom you chose to be your own and whom you brought out of Egypt by your great power and might.' NIV 29 But they are your people, your inheritance that you brought out by your great power and your outstretched arm.”
