Deuteronomy 32

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34]

DEUT 32:1 Give ear, you heavens, and I will speak; Let the earth hear the words of my mouth.

DEUT 32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain; My speech shall condense as the dew, As the small rain on the tender grass, As the showers on the herb.

DEUT 32:3 For I will proclaim the name of Yahweh: Ascribe greatness to our God.

DEUT 32:4 The Rock, his work is perfect; For all his ways are justice: A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, Just and right is he.

DEUT 32:5 They have dealt corruptly with him, [they are] not his children, [it is] their blemish; [They are] a perverse and crooked generation.

DEUT 32:6 Do you thus requite Yahweh, Foolish people and unwise? Isn't he your father who has bought you? He has made you, and established you.

DEUT 32:7 Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations: Ask your father, and he will show you; Your elders, and they will tell you.

DEUT 32:8 When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, When he separated the children of men, He set the bounds of the peoples According to the number of the children of Israel.

DEUT 32:9 For Yahweh's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.

DEUT 32:10 He found him in a desert land, In the waste howling wilderness; He compassed him about, he cared for him, He kept him as the apple of his eye.

DEUT 32:11 As an eagle that stirs up her nest, That flutters over her young, He spread abroad his wings, he took them, He bore them on his feathers.

DEUT 32:12 Yahweh alone did lead him, There was no foreign god with him.

DEUT 32:13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, He ate the increase of the field; He made him to suck honey out of the rock, Oil out of the flinty rock;

DEUT 32:14 Butter of the herd, and milk of the flock, With fat of lambs, Rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the finest of the wheat; Of the blood of the grape you drank wine.

DEUT 32:15 But Jeshurun grew fat, and kicked: You have grown fat, you are grown thick, you are become sleek; Then he forsook God who made him, Lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

DEUT 32:16 They moved him to jealousy with strange [gods]; With abominations provoked they him to anger.

DEUT 32:17 They sacrificed to demons, [which were] no God, To gods that they didn't know, To new [gods] that came up of late, Which your fathers didn't dread.

DEUT 32:18 Of the Rock that became your father, you are unmindful, Have forgotten God who gave you birth.

DEUT 32:19 Yahweh saw [it], and abhorred [them], Because of the provocation of his sons and his daughters.

DEUT 32:20 He said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: For they are a very perverse generation, Children in whom is no faithfulness.

DEUT 32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; They have provoked me to anger with their vanities: I will move them to jealousy with those who are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

DEUT 32:22 For a fire is kindled in my anger, Burns to the lowest Sheol, Devours the earth with its increase, Sets on fire the foundations of the mountains.

DEUT 32:23 I will heap evils on them; I will spend my arrows on them:

DEUT 32:24 [They shall be] wasted with hunger, and devoured with burning heat Bitter destruction; The teeth of animals will I send on them, With the poison of crawling things of the dust.

DEUT 32:25 Outside shall the sword bereave, In the chambers terror; [It shall destroy] both young man and virgin, The suckling with the man of gray hairs.

DEUT 32:26 I said, I would scatter them afar, I would make the memory of them to cease from among men;

DEUT 32:27 Were it not that I feared the provocation of the enemy, Lest their adversaries should judge wrongly, Lest they should say, Our hand is exalted, Yahweh has not done all this.

DEUT 32:28 For they are a nation void of counsel, There is no understanding in them.

DEUT 32:29 Oh that they were wise, that they understood this, That they would consider their latter end!

DEUT 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, Two put ten thousand to flight, Except their Rock had sold them, Yahweh had delivered them up?

DEUT 32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, Even our enemies themselves being judges.

DEUT 32:32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, Of the fields of Gomorrah: Their grapes are grapes of gall, Their clusters are bitter:

DEUT 32:33 Their wine is the poison of serpents, The cruel venom of asps.

DEUT 32:34 Isn't this laid up in store with me, Sealed up among my treasures?

DEUT 32:35 Vengeance is mine, and recompense, At the time when their foot shall slide: For the day of their calamity is at hand, The things that are to come on them shall make haste.

DEUT 32:36 For Yahweh will judge his people, Repent himself for his servants; When he sees that [their] power is gone, There is none [remaining], shut up or left at large.

DEUT 32:37 He will say, Where are their gods, The rock in which they took refuge;

DEUT 32:38 Which ate the fat of their sacrifices, And drank the wine of their drink-offering? Let them rise up and help you, Let them be your protection.

DEUT 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, There is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; There is none who can deliver out of my hand.

DEUT 32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, And say, As I live forever,

DEUT 32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, My hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to my adversaries, Will recompense those who hate me.

DEUT 32:42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, My sword shall devour flesh; With the blood of the slain and the captives, From the head of the leaders of the enemy.

DEUT 32:43 Rejoice, you nations, [with] his people: For he will avenge the blood of his servants, Will render vengeance to his adversaries, Will make expiation for his land, for his people.

DEUT 32:44 Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he and Joshua the son of Nun.

DEUT 32:45 Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel;

DEUT 32:46 He said to them, Set your heart to all the words which I testify to you this day, which you shall command your children to observe to do, [even] all the words of this law.

DEUT 32:47 For it is no vain thing for you; because it is your life, and through this thing you shall prolong your days in the land, where you go over the Jordan to possess it.

DEUT 32:48 Yahweh spoke to Moses that same day, saying,

DEUT 32:49 Go up into this mountain of Abarim, to Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and see the land of Canaan, which I give to the children of Israel for a possession;

DEUT 32:50 and die on the mountain where you go up, and be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother died on Mount Hor, and was gathered to his people:

DEUT 32:51 because you trespassed against me in the midst of the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah of Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because you didn't sanctify me in the midst of the children of Israel.

DEUT 32:52 For you shall see the land before you; but you shall not go there into the land which I give the children of Israel.
