To Our Forefathers Yisrael
1 These are the words that Moshe spoke to kol Yisrael beyond the Yarden in the wilderness, in the plain opposite the Yam Suf, between Paran and Tophel and Lavan and Hatzeroth and Dizahav.
2 (There are eleven yamim' journey from Horev by the derech of Har Seir to Kadesh-Barnea.)
3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh chodesh, on the first yom of the chodesh, that Moshe spoke to the children of Yisrael, according to all that YHUH had given him in mitzvoth for them;
4 After he had slain Sichon the melech of the Amorites, who dwelt in Cheshbon and Og the melech of Bashan, who dwelt at Ashtaroth in Edrei:
5 Beyond Yarden, in the land of Moav, Moshe began to declare this Torah, saying,
6 YHUH our Ahlohim spoke to us in Horev, saying, You have dwelt long enough in this har:
7 Turn and take your journey and go to the har of the Amorites and to all the places near there, in the plain, in the hills and in the low country and in the south and by the sea side, to the land of the Kanaanites and to Levanon, to the great river, the River Euphrates.
8 See, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which YHUH swore to your ahvot, Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov, to give to them and to their zera after them.
9 And I spoke to you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you alone by myself:
10 YHUH your Ahlohim has multiplied you and, see, you are this yom as the cochavim of the shamayim for multitude.
11 YHUH Ahlohim of your ahvot will make you a thousand times more than you are now and bless you, as He has promised you!
12 How can I by myself all alone bear your pressure and your burden and your strife?
13 Take wise and understanding men, known among your tribes and I will make them heads over you.
14 And you answered me and said, The thing, which you have spoken, is tov for us to do.
15 So I took the heads of your tribes, wise men and well known and made them heads over you, captains over thousands and captains over hundreds and captains over fifties and captains over tens and officers among your tribes.
16 And I charged your shophtim at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brothers and judge in tzedakah between every man and his brother and the ger that is with him.
17 You shall not respect persons in mishpat; but you shall hear the small as well as the great; you shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the mishpat belongs to Ahlohim: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it to me and I will hear it.
18 And I commanded you at that time all the things that you should do.
19 And when we departed from Horev, we went through that entire huge and awesome wilderness, which you saw by the derech of the har of the Amorites, as YHUH our Ahlohim commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-Barnea.
20 And I said to you, You are come to the har of the Amorites, which YHUH our Ahlohim does give to us.
21 See,YHUH your Ahlohim has set the land before you: go up and possess it, as YHUH Ahlohim of your ahvot has said to you; fear not, neither be discouraged.
22 And you came near to me every one of you and said, We will send men before us and they shall search out the land and bring us word again of which derech we must go up and into what cities we shall come.
23 And the saying pleased me: and I took twelve men from you, one per tribe:
24 And they turned and went up into the har and came to the Valley of Eshcol and searched it out.
25 And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands and brought it down to us and brought us word again and said, It is a tov land that YHUH our Ahlohim gives us.
26 Nevertheless you would not go up, but rebelled against the mitzvah of YHUH your Ahlohim:
27 And you grumbled in your tents and said, Because YHUH hated us, He has brought us forth out of the land of Mitzrayim, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.
28 Where shall we go up? Our brothers have discouraged our levavot, saying, The people are greater and taller than us; the cities are great and walled up to the shamayim; and we have seen the sons of the Anakim there.
29 Then I said to you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them.
30 YHUH your Ahlohim who goes before you, He shall fight for you, according to all that He did for you in Mitzrayim before your eyes;
31 And in the wilderness, where you have seen how YHUH your Ahlohim carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the derech that you went, until you came into this place.
32 Yet in this matter you did not believe YHUH your Ahlohim,
33 Who went in the derech before you, to search out a place to pitch your tents, in the fire by lyla, to show you which derech you should go and in the cloud by yom.
34 And YHUH heard the voice of your words and was angry and swore, saying,
35 Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that tov land, which I swore to give to your ahvot.
36 Except Kalev the son of Yephunneh, he shall see it and to him will I give the land that he has walked upon and to his children because he has fully followed YHUH.
37 Also YHUH was angry with me for your sakes, saying, You also shall not go in there.
38 But Yahusha the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there: encourage him: for he shall cause Yisrael to inherit it.
39 And your little ones, which you said should be a prey and your children, which in that yom had no da’at between tov and evil, they shall go in there and to them will I give it and they shall possess it.
40 But as for you, turn and take your journey into the wilderness by the derech of the Yam Suf.
41 Then you answered and said to me, We have sinned against YHUH, we will go up and fight, according to all that YHUH our Ahlohim commanded us. And when you had girded on every man his weapons of war, you were ready to go up on the hill.
42 And YHUH said to me, Say to them. Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest you be smitten before your enemies.
43 So I spoke to you; and you would not listen, but rebelled against the order of YHUH and went presumptuously up into the har.
44 And the Amorites, who dwelt in that har, came out against you and chased you, as bees do and destroyed you in Seir, even to Hormah.
45 And you returned and wept before YHUH; but YHUH would not listen to your voice, nor give ear to you.
46 So you dwelt in Kadesh many yamim, according to the yamim that you dwelt there.
2 Then we turned and took our journey into the wilderness by the derech of the Yam Suf, as YHUH spoke to me: and we circled Har Seir many yamim.
2 And YHUH spoke to me, saying,
3 You have circled this har long enough: turn northward.
4 And command the people, saying, You are to pass through the coast of your brothers the children of Esav, who dwell in Seir; and they shall be afraid of you: take tov heed to yourselves therefore:
5 Strive not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a footstep; because I have given Har Seir to Esav for a possession.
6 You shall buy food from them for money, that you may eat; and you shall also buy mayim from them for money, that you may drink.
7 For YHUH your Ahlohim has blessed you in all the works of your hand: He knows your wandering through this great wilderness. These forty years YHUH your Ahlohim has been with you; you have lacked nothing.
8 And when we passed by our brothers the children of Esav, who dwelt in Seir, through the derech of the plain from Eilat and from Etzion-Gever, we turned and passed by the derech of the wilderness of Moav.
9 And YHUH said to me, Distress not the Moavites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give you their land as a possession; because I have given Ar to the children of Lot as a possession.
10 The Emim dwelt there in times past, a people great and many and tall, as the Anakim;
11 Which also were reckoned as Rephayim, like the Anakim; but the Moavites called them Emim.
12 The Horites also dwelt in Seir before; but the children of Esav succeeded them, when they had destroyed them and dwelt in their place; as Yisrael did to the land of their possession, which YHUH gave to them.
13 Now rise up, I said and go over the brook Zered. And we went over the brook Zered.
14 And the time from which we came from Kadesh-Barnea, until we came over the brook Zered, was thirty-eight years; until all the generation of the men of war were consumed from among the camp, as YHUH swore to them.
15 For indeed the Hand of YHUH was against them, to destroy them from among the camp, until they were consumed.
16 So it came to pass, when all the men of war had perished from among the people,
17 That YHUH spoke to me, saying,
18 You are to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moav, this yom:
19 And when you come near, opposite the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor strive with them: for I will not give you the land of the children of Ammon as a possession; because I have given it to the children of Lot for a possession.
20 (That also was accounted a land of Rephayim: Rephayim dwelt there in old times; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;
21 A people great and many and as tall, as the Anakim; but YHUH destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them and dwelt in their place:
22 As He did to the children of Esav, who dwelt in Seir, when He destroyed the Horites from before them; and they succeeded them and dwelt in their place even to this yom:
23 And the Avim who dwelt in Hatzerim, even to Azzah, the Kaphtorim, who came forth out of Kaphtor, destroyed them and dwelt in their place).
24 Rise up, take your journey and pass over the river Arnon: see, I have given into your hand Sichon the Amorite, melech of Cheshbon and his land: begin to possess it and contend with him in battle.
25 This yom will I begin to put the dread of you and the fear of you upon the goyim that are under the whole shamayim, who shall hear reports of you and shall tremble and be in anguish because of you.
26 And I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth to Sichon melech of Cheshbon with words of shalom, saying,
27 Let me pass through your land: I will go along by the highway; I will neither turn to the right hand nor to the left.
28 You shall sell me meat for money that I may eat; and give me mayim for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through on my feet;
29 As the children of Esav who dwell in Seir and the Moavites who dwell in Ar, did for me; until I shall pass over Yarden into the land that YHUH our Ahlohim gives us.
30 But Sichon melech of Cheshbon would not let us pass by him: for YHUH your Ahlohim hardened his ruach and made his lev obstinate, that He might deliver him into your hand, as can be seen this yom.
31 And YHUH said to me, See, I have begun to give Sichon and his land to you: begin to possess, that you may inherit his land.
32 Then Sichon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Yahaz.
33 And YHUH our Ahlohim delivered him before us; and we smote him and his sons and all his people.
34 And we took all his cities at that time and utterly destroyed the men and the women and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain:
35 Only the cattle we took for a prey to ourselves and the spoil of the cities, that we took.
36 From Aroer, which is by the edge of the river of Arnon and from the city that is by the river, even to Gilad, there was not one city too strong for us:YHUH our Ahlohim delivered all of them to us:
37 Only to the land of the children of Ammon you did not come, nor to any place of the river Yavok, nor to the cities in the mountains, nor to whatever YHUH our Ahlohim has forbidden us.
Torah Parsha 40 Shavuah-Week 40-Derech HaBashan. Devarim-Deuteronomy chapters 3-6. Renewed Covenant Qorintyah Bet Second Corinthians chapters 1-5.
3 Then we turned and went up the derech to Bashan: and Og the melech of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
2 And YHUH said to me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him and all his people and his land, into your hand; and you shall do to him as you did to Sichon melech of the Amorites, who dwelt at Cheshbon.
3 So YHUH our Ahlohim delivered Og into our hands also, the melech of Bashan and all his people: and we smote him until none of them was left with him.
4 And we took all his cities at that time; there was not a city that we didn’t take from them, sixty cities, all the region of Argov and the malchut of Og in Bashan.
5 All these cities were fortified with high walls, gates and bars; and many unwalled towns.
6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did to Sichon melech of Cheshbon, utterly destroying the men, women and children, of every city.
7 But all the cattle and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey for ourselves.
8 And we took at that time out of the hand of the two melechim of the Amorites the land that was beyond Yarden, from the river of Arnon to Har Hermon;
9 (Hermon is the place that the Tzidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir)
10 All the cities of the plain and all Gilad and all Bashan, to Salchah and Edrei, cities of the malchut of Og in Bashan.
11 For only Og melech of Bashan remained of the remnant of the Rephayim; see his bed frame was a bed frame of iron; is it not in Ravvath of the children of Ammon? Nine cubits was the length of it and four cubits the width of it, after the cubit of a man.
12 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the River Arnon and half of Har Gilad and the cities of it, I gave to the Reuvenites and to the Gadites.
13 And the rest of Gilad and all Bashan, being the malchut of Og, I gave to the half tribe of Menasheh; all the region of Argov, with all Bashan, which was called the land of Rephayim.
14 Yair the son of Menasheh took all the country of Argov to the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them, even Bashan, after his own name, Havoth-Yair, to this yom.
15 And I gave Gilad to Machir.
16 And to the Reuvenites and to the Gadites I gave from Gilad even to the River Arnon half the valley and the border even to the River Yavok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;
17 The plain also and Yarden and the coast of it, from Kinnereth even to the sea of the plain, even the Salt Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah eastward.
18 And I commanded you at that time, saying,YHUH your Ahlohim has given you this land to possess: you shall pass over armed before your brothers the children of Yisrael, all that are fit for the war.
19 But your wives and your little ones and your cattle, for I know that you have much cattle; shall abide in your cities that I have given you;
20 Until YHUH has given rest to your brothers, as well as to you and until they also possess the land which YHUH your Ahlohim has given them beyond Yarden: and then shall you return every man to his possession, which I have given you.
21 And I commanded Yahusha at that time, saying, Your eyes have seen all that YHUH your Ahlohim has done to these two melechim: so shall YHUH do to all the malchutim where you are going.
22 You shall not fear them: for YHUH your Ahlohim He shall fight for you.
23 And I pleaded with YHUH at that time, saying,
24 O Master YHUH, You have begun to show Your eved Your greatness and Your mighty hand: for what El is there in the shamayim, or in the earth, that can do according to Your works and according to Your might?
25 I asked You, let me go over and see the tov land that is beyond the Yarden, that beautiful har and Levanon.
26 But YHUH was angry with me for your sakes and would not listen to me: and YHUH said to me, Enough of that already! Speak no more to Me about this matter.
27 Get up into the top of Pisgah and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward and see it with your eyes: for you shall not go over this Yarden River.
28 But charge Yahusha and encourage him and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people and he shall cause them to inherit the land that you shall see.
29 So we dwelt in the valley opposite Beit-Peor.
4 Now therefore listen, O Yisrael, to the chukim and to the mishpatim, which I teach you, for to do them, that you may live and go in and possess the land which YHUH Ahlohim of your ahvot gives you.
2 You shall not add to the word, which I command you, neither shall, you take away anything from it, that you may shomer the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim that I command you.
3 Your eyes have seen what YHUH did because of Ba’al-Peor: for all the men that followed Ba’al-Peor, YHUH your Ahlohim has destroyed them from among you.
4 But you who cling to YHUH your Ahlohim are alive every one of you this yom.
5 See, I have taught you chukim and mishpatim, even as YHUH my Ahlohim commanded me, that you should do so in the land which you go to possess.
6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your chochmah and your binah in the sight of the goyim, who shall hear all these chukim and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
7 For what nation is there so great, who has Ahlohim so near to them, as YHUH our Ahlohim is in all things for which we call upon Him?
8 And what nation is there so great, that has chukim and mishpatim so tzadik as all this Torah, which I set before you this yom?
9 Only take heed to yourself and shomer your being diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen and lest they depart from your lev all the yamim of your chayim: but teach them to your sons and your son’s sons;
10 The yom that you stood before YHUH your Ahlohim in Horev, when YHUH said to me, Gather the people together to Me and I will make them hear My Words, that they may learn to fear Me all the yamim that they shall live upon the earth and that they may teach their children.
11 And you came near and stood under the har; and the har burned with fire to the midst of the shamayim, with darkness, clouds and thick darkness.
12 And YHUH spoke to you out of the midst of the fire: you heard the voice of the words but saw no likeness, only you heard a voice.
13 And He declared to you His brit, which He commanded you to perform, even the Ten Mitzvoth and He wrote them upon two tablets of stone.
14 And YHUH commanded me at that time to teach you chukim and mishpatim, that you might do them in the land you are going to possess.
15 Take therefore tov heed to yourselves; for you saw no manner of form on the yom that YHUH spoke to you in Horev out of the midst of the fire:
16 Lest you corrupt yourselves and make a graven image, the form of any figure, the likeness of male, or female,
17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flies in the air,
18 The likeness of any thing that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the mayim beneath the earth:
19 And lest you lift up your eyes to the shamayim and when you see the shemesh and the yarayach and the cochavim, even all the host of the shamayim, should be drawn to worship them and serve them, which YHUH your Ahlohim has given to all goyim under the whole shamayim.
20 But YHUH has taken you and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Mitzrayim, to be to Him a people of inheritance, as you are this yom.
21 And YHUH was angry with me for your sakes and swore that I should not go over the Yarden and that I should not go in to that tov land, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance:
22 But I must die in this land, I must not go over the Yarden: but you shall go over and possess that tov land.
23 Take heed to yourselves, lest you forget the brit of YHUH your Ahlohim, which He made with you and make yourself a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, that YHUH your Ahlohim has forbidden you.
24 For YHUH your Ahlohim is a consuming fire, even a zealous El.
25 When you shall beget children and children's children and you shall have remained a long time in the land and shall corrupt yourselves and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing and shall do evil in the sight of YHUH your Ahlohim, to provoke Him to anger:
26 I call the shamayim and earth to witness against you this yom that you shall soon utterly perish from off the land which you are going over Yarden to possess; you shall not prolong your yamim upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.
27 And YHUH shall scatter you among the goyim and you shall be left few in number among the heathen, where YHUH shall lead you.
28 And there you shall serve ahlohim, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
29 But if from there you shall seek YHUH your Ahlohim, you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your lev and with all your being.
30 When you are in great tribulation, and all these things have come upon you, even in the latter-yamim, then you shall make teshuvah to YHUH your Ahlohim and shall be obedient to His voice.
31 For YHUH your Ahlohim is an El of rachamim, He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the brit of your ahvot, which He swore to them.
32 For ask now about the yamim that are past, which were before you, since the yom that Ahlohim created man upon the earth and ask from the one side of the shamayim to the other, whether there has been any Torah as great as this, or anything that has been heard like it?
33 Did any other people hear the voice of Ahlohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard and live?
34 Or, has Ahlohim tried to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of another nation, by trials, by signs and by wonders and by war and by a mighty hand and by an outstretched Arm, and by great deeds, according to all that YHUH your Ahlohim did for you in Mitzrayim before your eyes?
35 To you it was showed, that you might know that YHUH He is Ahlohim; there is none else beside Him.
36 Out of the shamayim He made you to hear His voice, that He might instruct you: and upon earth He showed you His great fire; and you heard His Words out of the midst of the fire.
37 And because He loved your ahvot, therefore He chose their zera after them and brought you out in His sight with His mighty Power out of Mitzrayim;
38 To drive out goyim from before you greater and mightier than you are, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as it is this yom.
39 Know therefore this yom and consider it in your lev, that YHUH He is Ahlohim in the shamayim above and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
40 You shall therefore shomer His chukim and His mitzvoth, which I command you this yom, that it may go well with you and with your children after you and that you may prolong your yamim upon the earth, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, le-olam-va-ed.
41 Then Moshe separated three cities on this side of the Yarden toward the rising shemesh;
42 That the killer might flee there, who might kill his neighbor unintentionally, without hating him in times past; and that fleeing to one of these cities he might live:
43 Namely, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the Reuvenites; and Ramot in Gilad, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, of the Menashshites.
44 And this is the Torah that Moshe set before the children of Yisrael:
45 These are the testimonies and the chukim and the mishpatim, which Moshe spoke to the children of Yisrael, after they came forth out of Mitzrayim.
46 On this side of Yarden, in the valley opposite Beit-Peor, in the land of Sichon melech of the Amorites, who dwelt at Cheshbon, whom Moshe and the children of Yisrael smote, after they had come forth out of Mitzrayim:
47 And they possessed his land and the land of Og melech of Bashan, two melechim of the Amorites, who were on this side of Yarden toward the rising of the shemesh;
48 From Aroer, which is by the bank of the River Arnon, even to Har Sion, which is Hermon,
49 And all the plain on this side of the Yarden eastward, even to the sea of the plain, under the slopes of Pisgah.
5 And Moshe called kol Yisrael and said to them, Hear, O Yisrael, the chukim and mishpatim which I speak in your hearing this yom, that you may learn them and shomer and do them.
2 YHUH our Ahlohim made a brit with us in Horev.
3 YHUH made not this brit with our ahvot, but with us, who are all of us here alive this yom.
4 YHUH talked with you panayim-el-panayim in the har out of the midst of the fire,
5 (I stood between YHUH and you at that time, to show you The Word of YHUH: For you were afraid because of the fire and went not up into the har) saying,
6 I AM YHUH your Ahlohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim, from the bayit of avdooth.
7 You shall have no other ahlohim before My face.
8 You shall not make any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in the shamayim above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the mayim beneath the earth:
9 You shall not bow down to them, nor serve them: for I YHUH your Ahlohim am a zealous El, visiting the iniquity of the ahvot upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me,
10 And showing rachamim to thousands of those who love Me and shomer My mitzvoth.
11 You shall not bring the Name of YHUH your Ahlohim to vain emptiness: for YHUH will not hold him guiltless that brings His Name to vain emptiness.
12 Shomer Yom ha Shabbat to set it apart, as YHUH your Ahlohim has commanded you.
13 Six yamim you shall labor and do all your work:
14 But the seventh yom is The Shabbat of YHUH your Ahlohim: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male eved, nor your female eved, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor the ger that is within your gates; that your male eved and your female eved may rest as well as you.
15 And remember that you were an eved in the land of Mitzrayim and that YHUH your Ahlohim brought you out from there through a mighty hand and by an outstretched Arm: therefore YHUH your Ahlohim commanded you to shomer Yom ha Shabbat.
16 Honor your abba and your eema, as YHUH your Ahlohim has commanded you; that your yamim may be prolonged and that it may go well with you, in the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you.
17 You shall not murder.
18 Neither shall you commit adultery.
19 Neither shall you steal.
20 Neither shall you bear false witness against your neighbor.
21 Neither shall you desire your neighbor's isha, neither shall you covet your neighbor's bayit, his field, nor his male eved, nor his female eved, his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.
22 These Words YHUH spoke to all your kehilla in the har out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and delivered them to me.
23 And it came to pass, when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, for the har did burn with fire, that you came near to me, even all the heads of your tribes and your zechanim;
24 And you said, See,YHUH our Ahlohim has showed us His tifereth and His greatness and we have heard His voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this yom that Ahlohim does talk with man and man still lives.
25 Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of YHUH our Ahlohim anymore, then we shall die.
26 For who is there of all flesh, that has heard the voice of the living Ahlohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have and lived?
27 You go near and hear all that YHUH our Ahlohim shall say: and speak to us all that YHUH our Ahlohim shall speak to you; and we will listen to it and do it.
28 And YHUH heard the voice of your words, when you spoke to me; and YHUH said to me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken to you: they have well said all that they have spoken.
29 O that there were such a lev in them, that they would fear Me and shomer all My mitzvoth always, that it might be well with them and with their children le-olam-va-ed!
30 Go say to them, Get into your tents again.
31 But as for you, stand here by Me and I will speak to you all the mitzvoth and the chukim and the mishpatim, which you shall teach them, that they may do them in the land that I give them to possess.
32 You shall shomer to do therefore as YHUH your Ahlohim has commanded you: you shall not turn aside to the right hand, or to the left.
33 You shall have your halacha in all the halachot that YHUH your Ahlohim has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you and that you may prolong your yamim in the land that you shall possess.
6 Now these are the mitzvoth, the chukim and the mishpatim, which YHUH your Ahlohim commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land which you go to possess:
2 That you might fear YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer all His chukim and His mitzvoth, which I command you, you and your son and your son's son, all the yamim of your chayim; and that your yamim may be prolonged.
3 Hear, O Yisrael and shomer to do it; that it may be well with you and that you may increase mightily, as YHUH Ahlohim of your ahvot has promised you, in the land that flows with milk and honey.
4 Shema Yisrael:YHUH is our Ahlohim,YHUH is Echad:
5 And you shall love YHUH your Ahlohim with all your lev and with all your being and with all your might.
6 And these words, which I command you this yom, shall be in your lev:
7 And you shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your bayit and when you walk by the derech and when you lie down and when you rise up.
8 And you shall bind them for an ot upon your hand and they shall be as a memory between your eyes.
9 And you shall write them upon the posts of your bayit and on your gates.
10 And it shall be, when YHUH your Ahlohim shall have brought you into the land which He swore to your ahvot, to Avraham, to Yitzchak and to Yaakov, to give you great and tov cities, which you did not build,
11 And houses full of all tov things, which you filled not and wells dug, which you did not dig, vineyards and olive eytzim, which you planted not; when you shall have eaten and are full;
12 Then beware lest you forget YHUH, who brought you forth out of the land of Mitzrayim, from the bayit of avdooth.
13 You shall fear YHUH your Ahlohim and serve Him and shall swear by His Name.
14 You shall not go after other ahlohim, the ahlohim of the peoples who are all around you;
15 (For YHUH your Ahlohim is a zealous El among you) lest the anger of YHUH your Ahlohim be lit against you and destroy you from off the face of the earth.
16 You shall not try YHUH your Ahlohim, as you tried Him in Massah.
17 You shall diligently shomer the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim and His testimonies and His chukim, which He has commanded you.
18 And you shall do that which is right and tov in the sight of YHUH: that it may be well with you and that you may go in and possess the tov land that YHUH swore to your ahvot.
19 To cast out all your enemies from before you, as YHUH has spoken.
20 And when your son asks you in times to come, saying, What do these testimonies and chukim and mishpatim mean, which YHUH our Ahlohim has commanded you?
21 Then you shall say to your son, We were Pharaoh's avadim in Mitzrayim; and YHUH brought us out of Mitzrayim with a mighty hand:
22 And YHUH showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, upon Mitzrayim, upon Pharaoh and upon his entire household, before our eyes:
23 And He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in, to give us the land that He swore to our ahvot.
24 And YHUH commanded us to do all these chukim, to fear YHUH our Ahlohim, for our tov always, that He might preserve us alive, as it is this yom.
25 And it shall be our tzedakah, if we shomer to do all these mitzvoth before YHUH our Ahlohim, as He has commanded us.
7 When YHUH your Ahlohim shall bring you into the land where you are going to possess and has cast out many goyim before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Kanaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Yevusites, seven goyim greater and mightier than you;
2 And when YHUH your Ahlohim shall deliver them before you; you shall smite them and utterly destroy them; you shall make no brit with them, nor show rachamim to them:
3 Neither shall you make marriages with them; your daughter you shall not give to his son, nor his daughter shall you take for your son.
4 For they will turn away your son from following Me, that they may serve other ahlohim : so will the anger of YHUH be lit against you and destroy you suddenly.
5 But this is how you shall deal with them; you shall destroy their altars and break down their images and cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire.
6 For you are a kadosh people to YHUH your Ahlohim:YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen you to be a special people to Himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
7 YHUH did not set His love upon you, nor choose you because you were more in number than any people; for you were the fewest of all peoples:
8 But because YHUH loved you and because He would keep the oath which He had sworn to your ahvot; therefore YHUH has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you out of the bayit of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim.
9 Know that YHUH your Ahlohim, He is Ahlohim, the faithful El, who keeps His brit and rachamim with them that love Him and shomer His mitzvoth to a thousand generations;
10 And repays them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them: He will not be slack to anyone that hates Him; He will repay him to his face.
11 You shall therefore shomer the mitzvoth and the chukim and the mishpatim, which I command you this yom, to do them.
12 Therefore it shall come to pass, if you listen to these mishpatim and shomer and do them, that YHUH your Ahlohim shall keep with you the brit and the rachamim which He swore to your ahvot:
13 And He will love you and bless you and multiply you: He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the flocks of your sheep, in the land which He swore to your ahvot to give you.
14 You shall be blessed above all peoples: there shall not be male, or female barren among you, or among your cattle.
15 And YHUH will take away from you all sickness and will put none of the evil diseases of Mitzrayim, which you have seen and know about, upon you; but will lay them upon all them that hate you.
16 And you shall consume all the peoples that YHUH your Ahlohim shall deliver for you; your eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shall you serve their ahlohim; for that will be a snare to you.
17 If you shall say in your lev, These goyim are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?
18 You shall not be afraid of them: but shall well remember what YHUH your Ahlohim did to Pharaoh and to all Mitzrayim;
19 The great temptations which your eyes saw and the signs and the wonders and the mighty hand and the outstretched Arm, by which YHUH your Ahlohim brought you out: so shall YHUH your Ahlohim do to all the peoples whom you fear.
20 Moreover YHUH your Ahlohim will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, who hide themselves from you, will be destroyed.
21 You shall not be afraid of them: for YHUH your Ahlohim is among you, a Mighty-El and awesome.
22 And YHUH your Ahlohim will put out those goyim before you little by little: you may not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon you.
23 But YHUH your Ahlohim shall deliver them to you and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they are destroyed.
24 And He shall deliver their melechim into your hand and you shall destroy their name from under the shamayim: there shall no man be able to stand before you, until you have destroyed them.
25 The graven images of their ahlohim shall you burn with fire: you shall not desire the silver, or gold that is on them, nor take it for yourselves, lest you be snared with it: for it is an abomination to YHUH your Ahlohim.
26 Neither shall you bring an abomination into your bayit, lest you be a cursed thing like it: but you shall utterly detest it and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.
8 All the mitzvoth, which I command you this yom, shall you shomer to do, that you may live and multiply and go in and possess the land that YHUH swore to your ahvot.
2 And you shall remember all the derachot that YHUH your Ahlohim led you these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and to prove you, to know what was in your lev, whether you would shomer His mitzvoth, or not.
3 And He humbled you and allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you knew not, neither did your ahvot know; that He might make you know that man does not live by lechem only, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of YHUH does man live.
4 Your garment did not wear out on you; neither did your foot swell, these forty years.
5 You shall also consider in your lev, that, as a man disciplines his son, so YHUH your Ahlohim disciplines you.
6 Therefore you shall shomer the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim, to have your halacha in His halachot and to fear Him.
7 For YHUH your Ahlohim brings you into a tov and spacious land, a land of brooks of mayim, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;
8 A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig eytzim and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey;
9 A land where you shall eat lechem without scarceness, you shall not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you may dig brass.
10 When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless YHUH your Ahlohim for the tov land that He has given you.
11 Beware that you forget not YHUH your Ahlohim, in not keeping His mitzvoth and His mishpatim and His chukim, which I command you this yom:
12 Lest when you have eaten and are full and have built nice houses and dwelt in them;
13 And when your herds and your flocks multiply and your silver and your gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied;
14 That your lev be lifted up and you forget YHUH your Ahlohim, who brought you forth out of the land of Mitzrayim, from the bayit of bondage;
15 Who led you through that great and awesome wilderness, where there were fiery serpents and scorpions and drought, where there was no mayim; who brought forth mayim out of the rock of flint;
16 Who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ahvot knew not, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do you tov at your latter-end,
17 And you say in your lev, My power and the might of my hand has gotten me this wealth.
18 But you shall remember YHUH your Ahlohim: for it is He that gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His brit which He swore to your ahvot, to Avraham, to Yitzchak and to Yaakov, as it is this yom.
19 And it shall be, if you do in any manner forget YHUH your Ahlohim and have your halacha after other ahlahim and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this yom that you shall surely perish.
20 And like the goyim that YHUH destroyed before your face, so shall you also perish; because you would not be obedient to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim.
9 Shema Yisrael: You are to pass over Yarden this yom, to go in to possess goyim greater and mightier than yourself, cities great and fortified up to the shamayim,
2 A people great and tall, the children of the Anakim, whom you know and of whom you have heard it said, Who can stand before the children of Anak!
3 Understand therefore this yom, that YHUH your Ahlohim is He who goes over before you; as a consuming fire He shall destroy them and He shall bring them down before your face: so shall you drive them out and destroy them quickly, as YHUH has said to you.
4 Do not say in your lev, after YHUH your Ahlohim has cast them out from before you, saying, For my tzedakah YHUH has brought me in to possess this land: rather for the wickedness of those goyim YHUH does drive them out from before you.
5 Not for your tzedakah, or for the uprightness of your lev, do you go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these goyim YHUH your Ahlohim does drive them out from before you and that He may perform the word which YHUH swore to your ahvot, Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov.
6 Understand therefore, that YHUH your Ahlohim does not give you this tov land to possess it for your tzedakah; for you are a stiff-necked people.
7 Remember and don’t forget, how you provoked YHUH your Ahlohim to wrath in the wilderness: from the yom that you did depart out of the land of Mitzrayim, until you came to this place, you have been rebellious against YHUH.
8 Also in Horev you provoked YHUH to wrath, so that YHUH was angry with you and wanted to destroy you.
9 When I had gone up into the har to receive the tablets of stone, even the tablets of the brit that YHUH made with you, then I dwelt in the har forty yamim and forty laylot, I neither did eat lechem nor drink mayim:
10 And YHUH delivered to me two tablets of stone written with the finger of Ahlohim; and on them was written according to all the words, which YHUH spoke with you in the har out of the midst of the fire in the yom of the kehilla.
11 And it came to pass at the end of forty yamim and forty laylot, that YHUH gave me the two tablets of stone, even the tablets of the brit.
12 And YHUH said to me, Arise, get down quickly from here; for your people whom you have brought forth out of Mitzrayim have corrupted themselves; they have quickly turned aside out of the halacha which I commanded them; they have made for themselves a molded image.
13 And YHUH spoke to me, saying, I have seen this people and see, it is a stiff-necked people:
14 Leave Me alone, that I may destroy them and blot out their name from under the shamayim: and I will make from you a nation mightier and greater than they.
15 So I turned and came down from the har and the har burned with fire: and the two tablets of the brit were in my two hands.
16 And I looked and, saw that you had sinned against YHUH your Ahlohim and had made a molded calf: you had turned aside quickly out of the halacha that YHUH had commanded you.
17 And I took the two tablets and cast them out of my two hands and broke them before your eyes.
18 And I fell down before YHUH, as at first, forty yamim and forty laylot: I did neither eat lechem, nor drink mayim because of all your sins which you committed, in doing wickedly in the sight of YHUH, to provoke Him to anger.
19 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, with which YHUH was angry against you to destroy you. But YHUH heard me at that time also.
20 And YHUH was very angry with Aharon and would have destroyed him: and I made tefillah for Aharon also at the same time.
21 And I took your sin, the calf which you had made and burned it with fire and stomped on it and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust into the brook that descended out of the har.
22 And at Taverah and at Massah and at Kivroth-Hattaavah, you provoked YHUH to wrath.
23 And when YHUH sent you from Kadesh-Barnea, saying, Go up and possess the land that I have given you; then you rebelled against the command of YHUH your Ahlohim and you believed Him not, nor listened to His voice.
24 You have been rebellious against YHUH from the yom that I knew you.
25 So I fell down before YHUH forty yamim and forty laylot, as I fell down the first time; because YHUH had said He would destroy you.
26 I made tefillah therefore to YHUH and said, O Master YHUH, destroy not Your people and Your inheritance, whom You have redeemed through Your greatness, whom You have brought out of Mitzrayim with a mighty hand.
27 Remember Your avadim, Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov; look not to the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin:
28 Lest the land from where you brought us out say, Because YHUH was not able to bring them into the land which He promised them and because He hated them, He has brought them out to slay them in the wilderness.
29 Yet they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You brought out by Your mighty Power and by Your outstretched Arm.
10 At that time YHUH said to me, Cut two tablets of stone like the first and come up to Me on the har and make an ark of wood.
2 And I will write on the tablets the words that were in the first tablets that you broke and you shall put them in the ark.
3 And I made an ark of acacia wood and cut two tablets of stone like the first and went up into the har, having the two tablets in my hand.
4 And He wrote on the tablets, according to the first writing, the Ten Mitzvoth, which YHUH spoke to you on the har out of the midst of the fire in the yom of the kehilla: and YHUH gave them to me.
5 And I turned and came down from the har and put the tablets in the Ark that I had made; and there they are, as YHUH commanded me.
6 And the children of Yisrael took their journey from Beeroth from the children of Yaakan to Mosera: there Aharon died and there he was buried; and El-Azar his son served in the kohen's office in his place.
7 From there they journeyed to Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Yotvath, a land of rivers of mayim.
8 At that time YHUH separated the tribe of Lewi, to bear the Ark of the Testimony of YHUH, to stand before YHUH to attend to Him and to bless in His Name, to this yom.
9 Therefore Lewi has no part, or inheritance with his brothers;YHUH is his inheritance, as YHUH your Ahlohim promised him.
10 And I stayed in the har, according to the first time, forty yamim and forty laylot; and YHUH heard me at that time also and YHUH chose not to destroy you.
11 And YHUH said to me, Arise, take your journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I swore to their ahvot to give them.
12 And now, Yisrael, what does YHUH your Ahlohim require of you, but to fear YHUH your Ahlohim, to have your halacha in all His halachot and to love Him and to serve YHUH your Ahlohim with all your lev and with all your being,
13 To shomer the mitzvoth of YHUH and His chukim, which I command you this yom for your tov.
14 See, the shamayim and the shamayim of shamayim belong to YHUH your Ahlohim, the earth also, with all that is in it.
15 Only YHUH had delight in your ahvot to love them and He chose their zera after them, even above all peoples, as it is this yom.
16 Perform brit-milah therefore on the foreskin of your lev, and be no more stiff-necked.
17 For YHUH your Ahlohim is the Ahlohim of all mighty ones and Master of all masters, a great El, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality, nor takes bribes:
18 He does execute the mishpat of the fatherless and widow and loves the ger, in giving him food and garments.
19 Love therefore the ger: for you were gerim in the land of Mitzrayim.
20 You shall fear YHUH your Ahlohim; Him shall you serve and to Him shall you cleave and swear by His Name.
21 He is your tehilla and He is your Ahlohim, that has done for you these great and awesome things, which your eyes have seen.
22 Your ahvot went down into Mitzrayim with seventy-five persons; and now YHUH your Ahlohim has made you as the cochavim of the shamayim for multitude.
11 Therefore you shall love YHUH your Ahlohim and shomer His charge and His chukim and His mishpatim and His mitzvoth, always.
2 And know you this yom: for I speak not with your children who have not known and who have not seen the chastisement of YHUH your Ahlohim, His greatness, His mighty hand and His outstretched Arm,
3 And His nisim and His acts, which He did in the midst of Mitzrayim to Pharaoh the melech of Mitzrayim and to all his land;
4 And what He did to the army of Mitzrayim, to their horses and to their mirkavot; how He made the mayim of the Yam Suf to overflow them as they pursued after you and how YHUH has destroyed them to this yom;
5 And what He did for you in the wilderness, until you came into this place;
6 And what He did to Dathan and Aviram, the sons of Eliav, the son of Reuven and all the men of Korach: how the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up and their households and their tents and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of kol Yisrael:
7 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of YHUH which He did.
8 Therefore shall you shomer all the mitzvoth which I command you this yom, that you may be strong and multiply, and go in and possess the land, which you are going to possess;
9 And to prolong your yamim in the land, which YHUH swore to your ahvot to give to them and to their zera, a land that flows with milk and honey.
10 For the land, which you go in to possess, is not as the land of Mitzrayim, from which you came out, where you sowed your zera and watered it by foot, as a garden of herbs:
11 But the land, which you are going to possess, is a land of hills and valleys and mayim to drink from the rain of the shamayim:
12 A land that YHUH your Ahlohim cares for: the eyes of YHUH your Ahlohim are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even to the end of the year.
13 And it shall come to pass, if you shall listen diligently to My mitzvoth which I command you this yom, to love YHUH your Ahlohim and to serve Him with all your lev and with all your being,
14 That I will give you the rain of your land in its due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil.
15 And I will send grass in your fields for your cattle, that you may eat and be full.
16 Take heed to yourselves, that your lev be not deceived and you turn aside and serve other ahlohim and worship them;
17 And then YHUH 's wrath be lit against you and He will shut up the shamayim, that there be no rain and that the land yield not its fruit; and you perish quickly from off the tov land which YHUH gives you.
18 Therefore shall you lay up My Words in your lev and in your being and bind them for an ot upon your hand, that they may be as a memory between your eyes.
19 And you shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your bayit and when you walk by the derech, when you lie down and when you rise up.
20 And you shall write them upon the doorposts of your bayit and upon your gates:
21 That your yamim may be multiplied and the yamim of your children, in the land which YHUH swore to your ahvot to give them, as the yamim of the shamayim are above the earth.
22 For if you shall diligently shomer all these mitzvoth that I command you, to do them, to love YHUH your Ahlohim, to have your halacha in all His halachot and to cleave to Him;
23 Then will YHUH drive out all these goyim from before you and you shall possess greater goyim and mightier ones than yourselves.
24 Every place the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Levanon, from the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea shall your coast be.
25 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for YHUH your Ahlohim shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that you shall tread upon, as He has said to you.
26 See, I set before you this yom a bracha and a curse;
27 A blessing, if you obey the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim, which I command you this yom:
28 And a curse, if you will not obey the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim, but turn aside out of the derech which I command you this yom, to go after other ahlohim , which you have not known.
29 And it shall come to pass, when YHUH your Ahlohim has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the blessing upon Har Gerazim and the curse upon Har Eival.
30 Are they not on the other side of the Yarden, further on the derech west, where the shemesh goes down, in the land of the Kanaanites, who dwell in the desert plains in front of Gilgal, next to the oak of Morah, beside Shechem.
31 For you shall pass over the Yarden to go in to possess the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you and you shall possess it and dwell there.
32 And you shall shomer to do all the chukim and mishpatim that I set before you this yom.
12 These are the chukim and mishpatim, which you shall shomer to do in the land, which YHUH Ahlohim of your ahvot gives you to possess, all the yamim that you live upon the earth.
2 You shall utterly destroy all the places, in which the goyim (which you shall possess) served their ahlohim, upon the high mountains and upon the hills and under every green eytz:
3 And you shall overthrow their altars and break their pillars and burn their Asherim with fire; and you shall cut down the graven images of their ahlohim and destroy their names out of that place.
4 You shall not do so to YHUH your Ahlohim.
5 But to the place that YHUH your Ahlohim chose out of all your tribes to put His Name there, even to His dwelling shall you seek and there you shall come:
6 And there you shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices and your ma’aser and heave offerings of your hand and your vows and your terumah offerings and the bechorot of your herds and of your flocks:
7 And there you shall eat before YHUH your Ahlohim and you shall gilah in all that you put your hand to, you and your households, in which YHUH your Ahlohim has blessed you.
8 You shall not do after all the things that we do here this yom; every man whatever is right in his own eyes.
9 For you have not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you.
10 But when you go over the Yarden and dwell in the land which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you to inherit and when He gives you rest from all your enemies all around, so that you dwell in safety;
11 Then there shall be a place which YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen to cause His Name to dwell; there shall you bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your ma’aser and the heave offering of your hand and all your choice vows which you vow to YHUH:
12 And you shall gilah before YHUH your Ahlohim, you and your sons and your daughters and your male avadim and your female avadim and the Lewi that is within your gates; because he has no part, or inheritance with you.
13 Take heed to yourself that you offer not your burnt offerings in every place that you see:
14 But in the place which YHUH has chosen in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings and there you shall do all that I command you.
15 Whatever you desire you may kill and eat in all your gates, according to the blessing of YHUH your Ahlohim which He has given you: the unclean and the clean man may eat of it, of the gazelle and deer alike.
16 Only you shall not eat the dahm; you shall pour it upon the earth as mayim.
17 You may not eat within your gates the ma’aser of your grain, or of your wine, or of your oil, or the bechorot of your herds, or of your flock, nor any of your vows which you vowed, nor your terumah offerings, or heave offering of your hand:
18 But you must eat them before YHUH your Ahlohim in the place which YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen, you and your son and your daughter and your male eved and your female eved and the Lewi that is within your gates: and you shall gilah before YHUH your Ahlohim in all that you put your hands to undertake.
19 Guard yourself that you forsake not the Lewi as long as you live upon the earth.
20 When YHUH your Ahlohim shall enlarge your border, as He has promised you and you shall say, I will eat meat because your being longs to eat flesh; you may eat flesh, whatever your being desires.
21 If the place where YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen to put His Name is too far from you, then you shall kill of your herd and of your flock, which YHUH has given you, as I have commanded you and you shall eat in your gates whatever your being desires.
22 Even as the gazelle and the deer are eaten, so you shall eat them: the unclean and the clean man shall eat of them alike.
23 Only be sure that you eat not the dahm: for the dahm is the chayim; and you may not eat the chayim with the meat.
24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it upon the earth as mayim.
25 You shall not eat it; that it may go well with you and with your children after you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of YHUH.
26 Only your kadosh things which you have and your vows, you shall take and go to the place which YHUH chose:
27 And you shall offer your burnt offerings, the meat and the dahm, upon the altar of YHUH your Ahlohim: and the dahm of your sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of YHUH your Ahlohim and you shall eat the meat.
28 Shomer and hear all these words which I command you, that it may go well with you and with your children after you le-olam-va-ed, when you do that which is tov and right in the sight of YHUH your Ahlohim.
29 When YHUH your Ahlohim shall cut off the goyim from before you, that you are going to possess and you dispossess them and dwell in their land;
30 Guard yourself that you are not ensnared by following them, after they are destroyed from before you; and that you inquire not after their ahlohim , saying, How did these goyim serve their ahlohim? Even so will I do too.
31 You shall not do so to YHUH your Ahlohim: for every abomination to YHUH, that He hates, have they done to their ahlohim ; for even their sons and their daughters they have burned in the fire to their ahlohim.
32 Whatever I am commanding you, shomer to do it: you shall not add to it, nor take away from it.
13 If there arises among you a navi, or a dreamer of dreams and gives you an ot, or a wonder,
2 And the ot, or the wonders come to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, Let us go after other ahlohim, which you have not known and let us serve them;
3 You shall not listen to the words of that navi, or that dreamer of dreams: for YHUH your Ahlohim tests you, to know whether you love YHUH your Ahlohim with all your lev and with all your being.
4 You shall have your halacha after YHUH your Ahlohim and fear Him and shomer His mitzvoth and obey His voice and you shall serve Him and cleave to Him.
5 And that navi, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he has spoken to turn you away from YHUH your Ahlohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim and redeemed you out of the bayit of avdooth, in order to draw you away from the halacha that YHUH your Ahlohim commanded you to have. So shall you put the evil away from the midst of you.
6 If your brother, the son of your eema, or your son, or your daughter, or the isha of your bosom, or your chaver, which is as your own being, entices you secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other ahlohim, whom you have not known, you, nor your ahvot;
7 Namely, of the ahlohim of the people who are all around you, near to you, or far off from you, from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth;
8 You shall not agree with him, or listen to him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him:
9 But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death and afterwards the hand of all the people.
10 And you shall stone him with stones, that he die; because he has sought to tear you away from YHUH your Ahlohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim, from the bayit of avdooth.
11 And kol Yisrael shall hear and fear and shall do no more any such wickedness as this among you.
12 If you shall hear someone from one of your cities, that YHUH your Ahlohim has given you to dwell in, saying,
13 Certain men, the children of Belial, have gone out from among you and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other ahlohim, whom you have not known;
14 Then shall you inquire and search and ask diligently; and, see, if it is emet and if the thing is certain, that such abomination is done among you;
15 You shall surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly and all that is in it and the cattle of it, with the edge of the sword.
16 And you shall gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street and shall burn with fire the city and all the spoil of it, for YHUH your Ahlohim: and it shall be a heap le-olam-va-ed; it shall not be built again.
17 And there shall cleave none of the cursed thing to your hand: so that YHUH may turn from the fierceness of His anger and show you rachamim and have rachamim upon you and multiply you, as He has sworn to your ahvot;
18 When you shall listen to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer all His mitzvoth that I command you this yom, to do that which is tzadik in the eyes of YHUH your Ahlohim.
14 You are the children of YHUH your Ahlohim: you shall not cut yourselves, nor shave between your eyes for the dead.
2 For you are a kadosh people to YHUH your Ahlohim and YHUH has chosen you to be a treasured possession, a people for Himself, above all the goyim that are upon the earth.
3 You shall not eat any abominable thing.
4 These are the beasts that you shall eat: the ox, the sheep and the goat,
5 The deer and the gazelle and the fallow deer and the wild goat and the har goat and the wild ox and the har sheep.
6 And every beast that parts the hoof and splits the hoof in two and chews the cud are among the beasts that you shall eat.
7 Nevertheless these you shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that split the hoof; like the camel and the hare and the rabbit: for they chew the cud, but split not the hoof; therefore they are unclean to you.
8 And the swine because it parts the hoof, yet chews not the cud, it is unclean to you: you shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead gooff.
9 These you shall eat of all that are in the mayim: all that have fins and scales shall you eat:
10 And whatever has not fins and scales you may not eat; it is unclean to you.
11 Of all clean birds you shall eat.
12 But these are they of which you shall not eat: the eagle and the vulture and the black vulture,
13 And the red kite and the falcon and the buzzard after their kinds,
14 And every raven after its kind.
15 And the ostrich and the nighthawk and the seagull and the hawk after its kind,
16 The little owl and the great owl and the white owl,
17 And the pelican and the carrion vulture and the fisher owl,
18 And the stork and the heron after its kind and the lapwing and the bat.
19 And every creeping thing that flies is unclean to you: they shall not be eaten.
20 But of all clean birds you may eat.
21 You shall not eat of anything that dies by itself: you shall give it to the ger that is in your gates, that he may eat it; or you may sell it to an alien: for you are a kadosh people to YHUH your Ahlohim. You shall not cook a kid in its eema's milk.
22 You shall truly give ma’aser of all the increase of your zera that the field brings forth year by year.
23 And you shall eat before YHUH your Ahlohim, in the place that He chose to place His Name there, the ma’aser of your grain, of your wine and of your oil and the bechorot of your herds and of your flocks; that you may learn to fear YHUH your Ahlohim always.
24 And if the derech is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry it; or if the place is too far from you, where YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen to set His Name, when YHUH your Ahlohim has blessed you:
25 Then shall you turn it into money and bind up the money in your hand and shall go to the place which YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen:
26 And you shall bestow that money for whatever your being desires after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatever your being desires: and you shall eat there before YHUH your Ahlohim and you shall gilah, you and your household,
27 And the Lewi that is within your gates; you shall not forsake; for he has no part, or inheritance with you.
28 At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the ma’aser of your increase the same year and shall lay it up within your gates:
29 And the Lewi, (because he has no part nor inheritance with you,) and the ger and the fatherless and the widow, which are within your gates, shall come and shall eat and be satisfied; that YHUH your Ahlohim may bless you in all the work of your hands which you do.
15 At the end of every seven years you shall make a release.
2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lends anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it from his neighbor, or from his brother; because it is called YHUH's release.
3 From a foreigner you may exact it again: but that which is yours with your brother your hand shall release;
4 There shall be no poor among you; for YHUH shall greatly bless you in the land which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance to possess:
5 Only if you carefully listen to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer and to do all these mitzvoth which I command you this yom.
6 For YHUH your Ahlohim will bless you, as He promised you: and you shall lend to many goyim, but you shall not borrow; and you shall reign over many goyim, but they shall not reign over you.
7 If there is among you a poor man of one of your brothers within any of your gates in your land which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, you shall not harden your lev, nor shut your hand from your poor brother:
8 But you shall open your hand wide to him and shall surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he needs.
9 Beware that there is not a thought of Beliy-al in your lev, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him no release; and he cries to YHUH against you and it becomes sin for you.
10 You shall surely give him the release and your lev shall not be grieved when you give it to him: because for this thing YHUH your Ahlohim shall bless you in all your works and in all that you put your hand to undertake.
11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command you, saying, You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and to your needy, in your land.
12 And if your brother, an Ivri man, or an Ivri woman, is sold to you and serves you six years; then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you.
13 And when you send him out free from you, you shall not let him go away empty-handed:
14 You shall furnish him liberally out of your flock and out of your floor and out of your winepress: of that which YHUH your Ahlohim has blessed you, you shall give to him.
15 And you shall remember that you were an eved in the land of Mitzrayim and YHUH your Ahlohim redeemed you: therefore I command you this thing today.
16 And it shall be, if he says to you, I will not go away from you; because he loves you and your bayit because he fares well with you;
17 Then you shall take an awl and thrust it through his ear to the door and he shall be your eved le-olam-va-ed. And also to your female eved you shall do likewise.
18 It shall not seem hard to you, when you send him away free from you; for he has been worth twice as much as a hired eved to you, in serving you six years: and YHUH your Ahlohim shall bless you in all that you do.
19 All the bachor males that come from your herd and from your flock you shall set it apart to YHUH your Ahlohim: you shall do no work with the bachor of your herd, nor shear the bachor of your sheep.
20 You shall eat it before YHUH your Ahlohim year by year in the place that YHUH has chosen, you and your household.
21 And if there is any blemish in it, such as if it is lame, or blind, or has any ill blemish, you shall not sacrifice it to YHUH your Ahlohim.
22 You shall eat it within your gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the gazelle and as the deer.
23 Only you shall not eat the dahm of it; you shall pour it upon the ground as mayim.
16 Shomer the chodesh of The Aviv-OT, and shomer the Pesach to YHUH your Ahlohim: for in the chodesh of Aviv YHUH your Ahlohim brought you forth out of Mitzrayim by lyla.
2 You shall therefore sacrifice the Pesach to YHUH your Ahlohim, from the flock and the herd, in the place that YHUH has chosen to place His Name.
3 You shall eat no leavened lechem with it; seven yamim shall you eat matzah with it, even the lechem of affliction; for you came forth out of the land of Mitzrayim in haste: that you may remember the yom when you came forth out of the land of Mitzrayim all the yamim of your chayim.
4 And there shall be no leavened lechem seen with you in all your borders seven yamim; neither shall any of the meat, which you sacrificed the first yom at evening, remain all lyla until the boker.
5 You may not sacrifice the Pesach within any of your gates, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you:
6 But at the place that YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen to place His Name, there you shall sacrifice the Pesach at evening, at the going down of the shemesh, at the season that you came forth out of Mitzrayim.
7 And you shall roast and eat it in the place that YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen: and you shall return in the boker and go to your tents.
8 Six yamim you shall eat matzah: and on the seventh yom shall be a miqra kodesh to YHUH your Ahlohim: you shall do no work in it.
9 Seven whole weeks shall you number: begin to number the seven whole weeks from such time as you begin to put the sickle to the grain.
10 And you shall shomer the Chag Shavuot to YHUH your Ahlohim with a tribute of a terumah offering from your hand, which you shall give to YHUH your Ahlohim, according to how YHUH your Ahlohim has blessed you:
11 And you shall gilah before YHUH your Ahlohim, you and your son and your daughter and your male eved and your female eved and the Lewi that is within your gates and the ger and the fatherless and the widow, that are among you, in the place which YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen to place His Name.
12 And you shall remember that you were an eved in Mitzrayim: and you shall shomer and do these chukim.
13 You shall shomer Chag Sukkot seven yamim, after you have gathered in your grain and your wine:
14 And you shall gilah in your chag, you and your son and your daughter and your male eved and your female eved and the Lewi, the ger and the fatherless and the widow, that are within your gates.
15 Seven yamim shall you shomer a solemn chag to YHUH your Ahlohim in the place which YHUH has chosen: because YHUH your Ahlohim shall bless you in all your increase and in all the works of your hands, therefore you shall surely gilah.
16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before YHUH your Ahlohim in the place which He has chosen; at Chag Matzoth and at Chag Shavuot and at Chag Sukkot: and they shall not appear before YHUH empty-handed:
17 Every man shall give, as he is able; according to the bracha of YHUH your Ahlohim; that He has given you.
18 Shophtim and officers shall you appoint in all your gates, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, throughout your tribes: and they shall judge the people with just mishpat.
19 You shall not distort mishpat; you shall not respect persons, neither take a bribe: for a bribe does blind the eyes of the wise and pervert the words of the tzadik.
20 That which is fully just shall you follow, that you may live and inherit the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you.
21 You shall not plant a grove of any eytzim near the altar of YHUH your Ahlohim, which you shall make.
22 Neither shall you set up any pillar; which YHUH your Ahlohim hates.
17 You shall not sacrifice to YHUH your Ahlohim any bull, or sheep, in which there is a blemish, or any evil matter: for that is an abomination to YHUH your Ahlohim.
2 If there is found among you, within any of your gates which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, man, or woman, that has done wickedness in the sight of YHUH your Ahlohim, in transgressing His brit,
3 And has gone and served other ahlohim and worshipped them, either the shemesh, or yarayach, or any of the host of the shamayim, which I have not commanded;
4 And it is told to you and you have heard of it and inquired diligently and it is emet and the thing is certain, that such abomination is done in Yisrael.
5 Then shall you bring forth that man, or that woman, that has committed that wicked thing, to your gates, even that man, or that woman and shall stone them with stones, until they die.
6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death and afterward the hands of all the people. So you shall put the evil away from among you.
8 If there arises a matter too hard for you in mishpat, between dahm and dahm, between a lawsuit and another, between an assault or another, being matters of controversy within your gates: then shall you arise and get up into the place which YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen;
9 And you shall come to the kohanim the Lewiym and to the shophet that shall be in those yamim and inquire; and they shall show you the sentence of mishpat:
10 And you shall do according to the sentence, which they of that place which YHUH has chosen shall show you; and you shall shomer to do according to all that they inform you:
11 According to the verdict of the Torah that they shall teach you and according to the mishpat that they shall tell you, you shall do: you shall not decline from the ruling which they shall show you, to the right hand, nor to the left.
12 And the man that will do arrogantly and will not listen to the kohen that stands to attend there before YHUH your Ahlohim, or to the shophet, even that man shall die: and you shall put away the evil from Yisrael.
13 And all the people shall hear and fear and not do arrogantly.
14 When you are come to the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you and shall possess it and shall dwell in it and shall say, I will set a melech over me, like all the goyim that are around me;
15 You shall certainly set a melech over you, whom YHUH your Ahlohim shall choose: one from among your brothers shall you set as melech over you: you may not set a ger over you, who is not your brother.
16 But he must not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Mitzrayim, so that he can multiply horses: because as YHUH has said to you, You shall not return anymore that derech.
17 Neither shall he multiply women to himself, so that his lev turns not away: neither shall he greatly multiply for himself silver and gold.
18 And it shall be, when he sits upon the kesay of his malchut, that he shall write himself a copy of this Torah in a scroll out of that which is before the kohanim the Lewiym:
19 And it shall be with him and he shall read it all the yamim of his chayim: that he may learn to fear YHUH his Ahlohim, to shomer all the Words of this Torah and these chukim, to do them:
20 That his lev may not be lifted up above his brothers and that he may not turn aside from the mitzvah, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his yamim in his malchut, he and his children, in the midst of Yisrael.
18 The kohanim the Lewiym and all the tribe of Lewi, shall have no part, or inheritance with Yisrael: they shall eat the offerings of YHUH made by fire and His inheritance.
2 They shall have no inheritance among their brothers:YHUH is their inheritance, as He has said to them.
3 And this shall be the kohen's due from the people, from those who offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox, or sheep; and they shall give to the kohen the thigh and the two cheeks and the stomach.
4 The bikkurim also of your grain, of your wine and of your oil and the first of the fleece of your sheep, shall you give him.
5 For YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen him out of all your tribes, to stand to attend in the Name of YHUH: him and his sons le-olam-va-ed.
6 And if a Lewi comes from any of your gates out of kol Yisrael, where he sojourned and comes with all the desire of his mind to the place that YHUH has chosen;
7 Then he shall attend in the Name of YHUH his Ahlohim, as all his brothers the Lewiym do, who stand there before YHUH.
8 They shall have like portions to eat, besides that which comes from the sale of his inheritance.
9 When you have come into the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, you shall not learn to do after the abominations of those goyim.
10 There shall not be found among you anyone that makes his son, or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or, a spell caster, or a consulter with familiar ruachim, or a wizard, or one who calls up the dead.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination to YHUH: and because of these abominations YHUH your Ahlohim does drive them out from before you.
13 You shall be perfect with YHUH your Ahlohim.
14 For these goyim, which you shall possess, listened to observers of times and to diviners: but as for you,YHUH your Ahlohim has not allowed you to do so.
15 YHUH your Ahlohim will raise up to you a Navi from the midst of you, from your brothers, like me; to Him you shall listen;
16 According to all that you desired of YHUH your Ahlohim in Horev in the yom of the kehilla, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of YHUH my Ahlohim, neither let me see this great fire anymore, that I die not.
17 And YHUH said to me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
18 I will raise them up a Navi from among their brothers, like you and will put My Words in His mouth; and He shall speak to them all that I shall command Him.
19 And it shall come to pass, that whoever will not listen to My Words that He shall speak in My Name, I will require it of him.
20 But the navi, who shall presume to speak a word in My Name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other ahlohim, even that navi shall die.
21 And if you say in your lev, How shall we know the word that YHUH has not spoken?
22 When a navi speaks in the Name of YHUH, if the thing follows not, nor comes to pass, that is the thing which YHUH has not spoken, but the navi has spoken it presumptuously: you shall not be afraid of him.
19 When YHUH your Ahlohim has cut off the goyim, whose land YHUH your Ahlohim gives you and you dispossess them and dwell in their cities and in their houses;
2 You shall separate three cities for yourselves in the midst of your land, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you to possess.
3 You shall prepare a derech and divide the coasts of your land, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you to inherit, into three parts, that every killer may flee there.
4 And this is the case of the killer, who shall flee there, that he may live: Whoever kills his neighbor ignorantly, whom he hated not in times past;
5 As when a man goes into the woods with his neighbor to cut wood and his hand swings with the axe to cut down the eytz and the head slips from the handle and strikes his neighbor, so that he dies; he shall flee to one of those cities and live:
6 Lest the revenger of the dahm pursue the killer, while his lev is hot and overtakes him because the derech is long and slays him; whereas he was not worthy of death because he hated him not in times past.
7 Therefore I commanded you, saying, You shall separate three cities for yourselves.
8 And if YHUH your Ahlohim enlarges your coast, as He has sworn to your ahvot and gives you all the land that He promised to give to your ahvot;
9 If you shall shomer all these mitzvoth to do them, which I command you this yom, to love YHUH your Ahlohim and to have your halacha always in His halachot; then shall you add three cities more for yourselves, besides these three:
10 That innocent dahm be not shed in your land, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance, so that dahm be upon you.
11 But if any man hates his neighbor and lies in wait for him and rises up against him and smites him so that he dies and flees into one of these cities:
12 Then the zechanim of his city shall send and fetch him there and deliver him into the hand of the revenger of dahm that he may die.
13 Your eye shall not pity him, but you shall put away the guilt of innocent dahm from Yisrael, that it may go well with you.
14 You shall not remove your neighbor's landmark, which those of past times have set in your inheritance, which you shall inherit in the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you to possess.
15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sins: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
16 If a false witness rises up against any man to testify against him, that which is wrong;
17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before YHUH, before the kohanim and the shophtim, who shall serve in those yamim;
18 And the shophtim shall make diligent inquiry: and, see, if the witness is a false witness and has testified falsely against his brother;
19 Then shall you do to him, as he had thought to have done to his brother: so shall you put the evil away from among you.
20 And those who remain shall hear and fear and shall commit no more any such evil among you.
21 And your eye shall not pity; but chayim shall go for chayim, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
20 When you go out to battle against your enemies and see horses and mirkavot and a people more than you, be not afraid of them: for YHUH your Ahlohim is with you, who brought you up out of the land of Mitzrayim.
2 And it shall be, when you come near to the battle, that the kohen shall approach and speak to the people,
3 And shall say to them, Shema Yisrael, you approach this yom to battle against your enemies: let not your levavot faint, fear not and do not tremble, neither be terrified because of them;
4 For YHUH your Ahlohim is He that goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
5 And the officers shall speak to the people saying, What man is there that has built a new bayit and has not dedicated it? Let him go and return to his bayit, lest he die in the battle and another man dedicate it.
6 And what man is he that has planted a vineyard and has not yet eaten of it? Let him also go and return to his bayit, lest he die in the battle and another man eat of it.
7 And what man is there that has engaged an isha and has not taken her? Let him go and return to his bayit, lest he die in the battle and another man take her.
8 And the officers shall speak further to the people and they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go and return to his bayit, lest his brother's lev faint as well as his lev.
9 And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking to the people that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people.
10 When you come near to a city to fight against it, then proclaim shalom to it.
11 And it shall be, if it gives you an answer of shalom and opens to you, then it shall be, that all the people that are found in it shall be compulsory labor to you and they shall serve you.
12 And if it will make no shalom with you, but will make war against you, then you shall besiege it:
13 And when YHUH your Ahlohim has delivered it into your hands, you shall smite every male in it with the edge of the sword:
14 But the women and the little ones and the cattle and all that is in the city, even all the spoil in it, shall you take for yourself; and you shall eat the spoil of your enemies, which YHUH your Ahlohim has given you.
15 This shall you do to all the cities which are very far off from you, which are not of the cities of these goyim.
16 But of the cities of these people, which YHUH your Ahlohim does give you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breathes:
17 But you shall utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites and the Amorites, the Kanaanites and the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Yevusites; as YHUH your Ahlohim has commanded you:
18 That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done to their ahlohim; so do not sin against YHUH your Ahlohim.
19 When you shall besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, you shall not destroy the eytzim in it by wielding an axe against them: for you may eat of them and you shall not cut them down for the eytz of the field is man's chayim to use them in the siege:
20 Only the eytzim that you know that they are not eytzim for food, you shall destroy and cut them down; and you shall build bulwarks against the city that makes war with you, until it falls.
21 If one is found slain in the land which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you to possess, lying in the field and it is not known who has slain him:
2 Then your zechanim and your shophtim shall come forth and they shall measure the distance to the cities, which are around him, that is slain:
3 And it shall be, that the city that is next to the slain man, even the zechanim of that city shall take a heifer, which has not been worked and which has not drawn in the yoke;
4 And the zechanim of that city shall bring down the heifer to a rough valley, which is neither plowed nor sown and shall cut off the heifer's neck there in the valley:
5 And the kohanim, the sons of Lewi, shall come near - for YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen them to attend to Him and to bless in the Name of YHUH; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried.
6 And all the zechanim of that city, that are next to the slain man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley:
7 And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this dahm, neither have our eyes seen it.
8 Atone, O YHUH, for Your people Yisrael, whom You have redeemed and lay not innocent dahm to Your people Yisrael's charge. And the dahm shall be forgiven them.
9 So shall you put away the guilt of innocent dahm from among you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of YHUH.
10 When you go forth to war against your enemies and YHUH your Ahlohim has delivered them into your hands and you have taken them captive,
11 And see among the captives a beautiful woman and have a desire for her, that you would have her to be your isha;
12 Then you shall bring her home to your bayit and she shall shave her head and trim her nails;
13 And she shall put off the garment of her captivity and shall remain in your bayit and bewail her abba and her eema a full chodesh: and after that you shall go in to her and be her husband and she shall be your isha.
14 And it shall be, if you have no delight in her, then you shall let her go where she will; but you shall not sell her at all for money, you shall not make merchandise of her because you have humbled her.
15 If a man has two wives, one beloved and another hated and they have born him children, both the beloved and the hated; and if the bachor son be hers that was hated:
16 Then it shall be, when he makes his sons to inherit that which he has, that he may not give preference to the son of the beloved isha before the son of the hated, who is indeed the bachor:
17 But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated as the bachor, by giving him a double portion of all that he has: for he is the beginning of his strength; the right of the bachor is his.
18 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his abba, or the voice of his eema and that, when they have disciplined him, will not listen to them:
19 Then shall his abba and his eema lay hold on him and bring him out to the zechanim of his city and to the gate of his place;
20 And they shall say to the zechanim of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.
21 Then all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, so that he dies: so shall you put evil away from among you; and kol Yisrael shall hear and fear.
22 And if a man has committed a sin worthy of death, then he shall be put to death and you shall hang him on an eytz:
23 His gooff shall not remain all lyla upon the eytz, but you shall bury him that yom; for he that is hanged is cursed-[arur] by Ahlohim; that your land is not defiled, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance.
22 You shall not see your brother's ox, or his sheep go astray and hide yourself from them: you shall without fail bring them again to your brother.
2 And if your brother is not near to you, or if you know him not, then you shall bring it to your own bayit and it shall be with you until your brother seeks after it and you shall restore it to him again.
3 In like manner shall you do with his donkey; and so shall you do with his garment; and with all lost things of your brother's, which he has lost and you have found, shall you do likewise: you may not hide yourself.
4 You shall not see your brother's donkey, or his ox fall down by the derech and hide yourself from them: you shall surely help him to lift them up again.
5 The woman shall not wear that which pertains to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination to YHUH your Ahlohim.
6 If a bird's nest by chance is before you in the derech in any eytz, or on the ground, with young ones, or eggs and the eema is sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, you shall not take the eema with the young:
7 But you shall in any case let the eema go and take the young for yourself; that it may be well with you and that you may prolong your yamim.
8 When you build a new bayit, then you shall make a guard rail for your roof, that you bring not dahm upon your bayit, if any man falls from there.
9 You shall not sow your vineyard with different zera: lest the fruit of your zera that you have sown and the fruit of your vineyard, be defiled and forfeited.
10 You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.
11 You shall not wear a garment of different sorts, as of wool and linen together.
12 You shall make for yourself tzitzit upon the four corners of your garment, with which you cover yourself.
13 If any man takes an isha and goes in to her and hates her,
14 And makes abusive charges against her and brings up an evil name upon her and says, I took this woman and when I came to her, I found her not a virgin:
15 Then shall The Abba of the damsel and her eema, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity to the zechanim of the city in the gate:
16 And the damsel's abba shall say to the zechanim, I gave my daughter to this man to be an isha and he hates her;
17 And, see, he has made an accusation against her, saying, I found not your daughter a virgin; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the zechanim of the city.
18 And the zechanim of that city shall take that man and discipline him;
19 And they shall fine him one hundred shekels of silver and give them to The Abba of the damsel because he has brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Yisrael: and she shall be his isha; he may not put her away all his yamim.
20 But if this thing is emet and the tokens of virginity are not found for the damsel:
21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her abba's bayit and the men of her city shall stone her with stones so that she dies: because she has done folly in Yisrael, to play the whore in her abba's bayit: so shall you put evil away from among you.
22 If a man is found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both die, both the man that lay with the woman and the woman: so shall you put away evil from Yisrael.
23 If a damsel that is a virgin is engaged to a husband and a man finds her in the city and lies with her;
24 Then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city and you shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel because she cried not, being in the city; and the man because he has humbled his neighbor's isha: so you shall put away evil from among you.
25 But if a man finds an engaged damsel in the field and the man forces her and lies with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die.
26 But to the damsel you shall do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man rises against his neighbor and slays him, even so is this matter:
27 For he found her in the field and the engaged damsel cried and there was none to save her.
28 If a man finds a damsel that is a virgin, who is not engaged and lays hold of her and lies with her and they are found;
29 Then the man that lay with her shall give to the damsel's abba fifty shekels of silver and she shall be his isha; because he has humbled her, he may not put her away all his yamim.
30 A man shall not take his abba's isha, nor discover his abba's skirt.
23 He that is wounded in the private male parts, or has his private member cut off, shall not enter into the kehilla of YHUH.
2 A bastard shall not enter into the kehilla of YHUH; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the kehilla of YHUH.
3 An Ammonite, or Moavite shall not enter into the kehilla of YHUH; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the kehilla of YHUH le-olam-va-ed:
4 Because they met you not with lechem and with mayim on the derech, when you came forth out of Mitzrayim; and because they hired Bilam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia against you, to curse you.
5 Nevertheless YHUH your Ahlohim would not listen to Bilam; but YHUH your Ahlohim turned the curse into a bracha for you because YHUH your Ahlohim loved you.
6 You shall not seek their shalom nor their prosperity all your yamim le-olam-va-ed.
7 You shall not abhor an Edomite; for he is your brother: you shall not abhor a Mitzri; because you were a ger in his land.
8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the kehilla of YHUH in their third generation.
9 When your army goes forth against your enemies, then guard yourself from every wicked thing.
10 If there is among you any man, that is not clean by reason of emission at lyla, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:
11 But it shall be, when evening comes, he shall wash himself with mayim: and when the shemesh is down, he shall come into the camp again.
12 You shall have a place also outside the camp, where you shall go forth abroad:
13 And you shall have a paddle upon your weapon; and it shall be, when you will ease yourself outside, you shall dig there and shall turn and cover your excrement:
14 For YHUH your Ahlohim walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and to give up your enemies before you; therefore shall your camp be kadosh: that He sees no unclean thing in you and turns away from you.
15 You shall not deliver back to his master the eved who has escaped from his master to you:
16 He shall dwell with you, even among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of your gates, where it suits him best: you shall not oppress him.
17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Yisrael, nor a sodomite of the sons of Yisrael.
18 You shall not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the Bayit of YHUH your Ahlohim for any vow: for even both these are abominations to YHUH your Ahlohim.
19 You shall not lend with interest to your brother; interest of money, interest of food, interest of any thing that is lent upon interest:
20 Unto a ger you may lend with interest; but to your brother you shall not lend with interest: that YHUH your Ahlohim may bless you in all that you set your hand to, in the land which you are going to possess.
21 When you shall vow a vow to YHUH your Ahlohim, you shall not be slack to pay it: for YHUH your Ahlohim will surely require it of you; and it would be sin to you.
22 But if you shall abstain to vow, there shall be no sin in you.
23 That which is gone out of your lips you shall shomer and perform; even a terumah offering, according as you have vowed to YHUH your Ahlohim, which you have promised with your mouth.
24 When you come into your neighbor's vineyard, then you may eat grapes to your fill at your own pleasure; but you shall not put any in your vessel.
25 When you come into the standing grain of your neighbor, then you may pluck the ears with your hand; but you shall not use a sickle for your neighbor's standing grain.
24 When a man has taken an isha and married her and it comes to pass that she finds no chen in his eyes because he has found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a Sefer Keritut and put it in her hand and send her out of his bayit.
2 And when she is departed out of his bayit, she may go and be another man's isha.
3 And if the latter husband hates her and writes her a Sefer Keritut and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his bayit; or if the latter husband dies, who took her to be his isha;
4 Her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his isha, after she is defiled; for that is abomination before YHUH: and you shall not cause the land to sin, which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance.
5 When a man has taken a new isha, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year and shall cheer up his isha which he has taken.
6 No man shall take the mill, or the upper millstone as a pledge: for he takes a man's chayim as a pledge.
7 If a man is found kidnapping any of his brothers of the children of Yisrael and makes merchandise of him, or sells him; then that thief shall die; and you shall put evil away from among you.
8 Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that you shomer diligently and do according to all that the kohanim the Lewiym shall teach you: as I commanded them, so you shall shomer to do.
9 Remember what YHUH your Ahlohim did to Miryam in the derech, after you had come forth out of Mitzrayim.
10 When you lend your brother anything, you shall not go into his bayit to get his pledge.
11 You shall stand outside and the man to whom you do lend shall bring the pledge outside to you.
12 And if the man is poor, you shall not sleep with his pledge:
13 In any case you shall deliver to him the pledge again when the shemesh goes down, that he may sleep in his own garment and bless you: and it shall be tzedakah to you before YHUH your Ahlohim.
14 You shall not oppress a hired eved that is poor and needy, whether he is of your brothers, or of your gerim that are in your land within your gates:
15 Daily you shall give him his wages, neither shall the shemesh go down upon it; for he is poor and sets his lev upon it: lest he cries against you to YHUH and it is sin to you.
16 The ahvot shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the ahvot: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
17 You shall not pervert the mishpat of the ger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's garment:
18 But you shall remember that you were an eved in Mitzrayim and YHUH your Ahlohim redeemed you there: therefore I command you to do this thing.
19 When you cut down your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go again to get it: it shall be for the ger, for the fatherless and for the widow: that YHUH your Ahlohim may bless you in all the work of your hands.
20 When you beat your olive eytz, you shall not examine the branch behind you: it shall be for the ger, for the fatherless and for the widow.
21 When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it afterward: it shall be for the ger, for the fatherless and for the widow.
22 And you shall remember that you were an eved in the land of Mitzrayim: therefore I command you to do this thing.
25 If there is a controversy between men and they come for mishpat, that the shophtim may judge them; then they shall justify the tzadik and condemn the wicked.
2 And it shall be, if the wicked man is worthy to be beaten, that the shophet shall cause him to lie down and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.
3 Forty stripes he may give him and not more: lest, if he should continue to beat him above these with many stripes, then your brother should be degraded before you.
4 You shall not muzzle the ox when it treads out the grain.
5 If brothers dwell together and one of them dies and has no child, the isha of the dead shall not marry a ger: her husband's brother shall go in to her and take her to himself as an isha and perform the duty of a husband's brother to her.
6 And it shall be, that the bachor whom she bears shall succeed in the name of his brother that is dead, that his name be not put out of Yisrael.
7 And if the man does not like to take his brother's isha, then let his brother's isha go up to the gate to the zechanim and say, My husband's brother refuses to raise up to his brother a name in Yisrael, he will not perform the duty of my husband's brother.
8 Then the zechanim of his city shall call him and speak to him: and if he persists and says, I desire not to take her;
9 Then shall his brother's isha come to him in the presence of the zechanim and loose his shoe from off his foot and spit in his face and shall answer and say, So shall it be done to that man that will not build up his brother's bayit.
10 And his name shall be called in Yisrael, The bayit of him that has his shoe loosed.
11 When men strive together one with another and the isha of the one draws near to deliver her husband out of the hand of the one that smites him and puts forth her hand and takes him by the private parts:
12 Then you shall cut off her hand, your eye shall not pity her.
13 You shall not have in your bag different weights, a great and a small.
14 You shall not have in your bayit different measures, a great and a small.
15 But you shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shall you have: that your yamim may be lengthened in the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you.
16 For all that do such things and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination to YHUH your Ahlohim.
17 Remember what Amalek did to you in the derech, when you came out of Mitzrayim;
18 How he met you by the derech and attacked your rear, even all that were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary; and he feared not Ahlohim.
19 Therefore it shall be, when YHUH your Ahlohim has given you rest from all your enemies all around, in the land which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance to possess, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under the shamayim; you shall not forget to do it.
26 And it shall be, when you come in to the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you for an inheritance and possess it and dwell in it;
2 That you shall take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which you shall bring from your land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you and shall put it in a basket and shall go to the place which YHUH your Ahlohim has chosen to place His Name.
3 And you shall go to the kohen that shall be in those yamim and say to him, I profess this yom to YHUH your Ahlohim, that I am come to the country which YHUH swore to our ahvot to give us.
4 And the kohen shall take the basket out of your hand and set it down before the altar of YHUH your Ahlohim.
5 And you shall speak and say before YHUH your Ahlohim, An Aramean was ready to destroy my abba; and he went down into Mitzrayim and sojourned there with a few and became there a nation, great, mighty and populous:
6 And the Mitzrim treated us wickedly and afflicted us and laid upon us hard avdooth:
7 And when we cried to YHUH Ahlohim of our ahvot,YHUH heard our voice and looked on our affliction and our labor and our oppression:
8 And YHUH brought us forth out of Mitzrayim with a mighty hand and with an outstretched Arm and with great fear and with signs and with wonders:
9 And He has brought us into this place and has given us this land, even a land that flows with milk and honey.
10 And now, see, I have brought the bikkurim of the land, which you, O YHUH, have given me. And you shall set it before YHUH your Ahlohim and worship before YHUH your Ahlohim:
11 And you shall gilah in every tov thing that YHUH your Ahlohim has given to you and to your bayit, you and the Lewi and the ger that is among you.
12 When you have made an end of tithing all the ma’aser of your increase the third year, which is the year of tithing and have given it to the Lewi, the ger, the fatherless and the widow, that they may eat within your gates and be filled;
13 Then you shall say before YHUH your Ahlohim, I have brought away the kadosh things out of my bayit and also have given them to the Lewite and to the ger, to the fatherless and to the widow, according to all your mitzvoth which you have commanded me: I have not transgressed your mitzvoth, neither have I forgotten them.
14 I have not eaten any of it in my mourning, neither have I taken away any of it for any unclean use, nor given any of it for the dead: but I have listened to the voice of YHUH my Ahlohim and have done according to all that you have commanded me.
15 Look down from your kadosh dwelling, from the shamayim and bless your people Yisrael and the land that you have given us, as You swore to our ahvot, a land that flows with milk and honey.
16 This yom YHUH your Ahlohim has commanded you to do these chukim and mishpatim: you shall therefore shomer and do them with all your lev and with all your being.
17 You have caused YHUH this yom to be your Ahlohim and to have your halacha in His halachot and to shomer His chukim and His mitzvoth and His mishpatim and to listen to His voice:
18 And YHUH has caused you this yom to be His treasured people, as He has promised you and that you should shomer all His mitzvoth;
19 And to make you high above all goyim that He has made, in tehilla and in name and in kavod; and that you may be a kadosh people to YHUH your Ahlohim, as He has spoken.
27 And Moshe with the zechanim of Yisrael commanded the people, saying, Shomer all of the mitzvah that I command you this yom.
2 And it shall be on the yom when you shall pass over the Yarden to the land which YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, that you shall set up great stones and plaster them with plaster:
3 And you shall write upon them all the Words of this Torah, when you have passed over, that you may go in to the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you, a land that flows with milk and honey, as YHUH Ahlohim of your ahvot has promised you.
4 Therefore it shall be when you have gone over Yarden, that you shall set up these stones, which I command you this yom, in Har Gerazim and you shall plaster them with plaster.
5 And there shall you build an altar to YHUH your Ahlohim, an altar of stones: you shall not lift up any iron tool upon them.
6 You shall build the altar of YHUH your Ahlohim of whole stones: and you shall offer burnt offerings on it to YHUH your Ahlohim:
7 And you shall offer shalom offerings and shall eat there and gilah before YHUH your Ahlohim.
8 And you shall write upon the stones all the Words of this Torah very plainly.
9 And Moshe and the kohanim the Lewiym spoke to kol Yisrael, saying, Take heed and listen, O Yisrael; this yom you have become the people of YHUH your Ahlohim.
10 You shall therefore obey the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim and do His mitzvoth and His chukim, which I command you this yom.
11 And Moshe charged the people the same yom, saying,
12 These tribes shall stand upon Har Gerazim to bless the people, when you go over Yarden; Shimon and Lewi and Yahudah and Yissachar and Yoseph and Benyamin:
13 And these tribes shall stand upon Har Eival to curse; Reuven, Gad and Asher and Zevulon, Dan and Naphtali.
14 And the Lewiym shall speak and say to all the men of Yisrael with a loud voice,
15 Cursed is the man that makes any graven, or molded image, an abomination to YHUH, the work of the hands of the craftsman and puts it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Ahmein.
16 Cursed is he that makes fun of and dishonors his abba, or his eema. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
17 Cursed is he that removes his neighbor's landmark. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
18 Cursed is he that makes the blind to wander out of the derech. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
19 Cursed is he that perverts the mishpat of the ger, fatherless and widow. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
20 Cursed is he that lies with his abba's isha; because he uncovers his abba's skirt. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
21 Cursed is he that lies with any manner of beast. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
22 Cursed is he that lies with his sister, the daughter of his abba, or the daughter of his eema. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
23 Cursed is he that lies with his eema-in-law. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
24 Cursed is he that smites his neighbor secretly. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
25 Cursed is he that takes a reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
26 Cursed is he that confirms not all the Words of this Torah to do them. And all the people shall say, Ahmein.
28 And it shall come to pass, if you shall listen diligently to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer and to do all His mitzvoth which I command you this yom, that YHUH your Ahlohim will set you on high above all goyim of the earth:
2 And all these brachot shall come on you and overtake you, if you shall listen to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim.
3 Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of your gooff and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your cattle and the flocks of your sheep.
5 Blessed shall be your basket and your bowl.
6 Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out.
7 YHUH shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be smitten before your face: they shall come against you one derech and flee before you seven derachot.
8 YHUH shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you undertake; and He shall bless you in the land that YHUH your Ahlohim gives you.
9 YHUH shall establish you as a kadosh people to Himself, as He has sworn to you, if you shall shomer the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim and have your halacha in His halachot.
10 And all people of the earth shall see that you are called by the Name of YHUH; and they shall be afraid of you.
11 And YHUH shall make you have plenty in goods, in the fruit of your gooff and in the fruit of your cattle and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which YHUH swore to your ahvot to give you.
12 YHUH shall open to you His tov treasure, the shamayim to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand: and you shall lend to many goyim and you shall not borrow.
13 And YHUH shall make you the head and not the tail; and you shall be above only and you shall not be beneath; if you listen to the mitzvoth of YHUH your Ahlohim, which I command you this yom, to shomer and to do them:
14 And you shall not go aside from any of the words that I command you this yom, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other ahlohim to serve them.
15 But it shall come to pass, if you will not listen to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer to do all His mitzvoth and His chukim that I command you this yom; that all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you:
16 Cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the field.
17 Cursed shall be your basket and your bowl.
18 Cursed shall be the fruit of your gooff and the fruit of your land, the increase of your cattle and the flocks of your sheep.
19 Cursed shall you be when you come in and cursed shall you be when you go out.
20 YHUH shall send upon you cursing, vexation and rebuke, in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly; because of the wickedness of your doings, by which you have forsaken Me.
21 YHUH shall make the pestilence cleave to you, until it has consumed you from off the land, which you are going to possess.
22 YHUH shall smite you with confusion and with a fever and with an inflammation and with an extreme burning and with the sword and with blight and with mildew; and they shall pursue you until you perish.
23 And your shamayim that is over your head shall be brass and the earth that is under you shall be iron.
24 YHUH shall make the rain of your land powder and dust: from the shamayim shall it come down upon you, until you are destroyed.
25 YHUH shall cause you to be smitten before your enemies: you shall go out one derech against them and flee seven derachot before them: and shall be removed into all the malchutim of the earth.
26 And your gooff shall be food to all fowls of the air and to the beasts of the earth and no man shall frighten them away.
27 YHUH will smite you with the boils of Mitzrayim and with the tumors and with the scab and with the itch, of which you cannot be healed.
28 YHUH shall smite you with madness and blindness and astonishment of lev:
29 And you shall grope at noonday, as the blind gropes in darkness and you shall not prosper in your derachot: and you shall be only oppressed and spoiled all your yamim and no man shall save you.
30 You shall engage an isha and another man shall lie with her: you shall build a bayit and you shall not dwell in it: you shall plant a vineyard and shall not gather the grapes of it.
31 Your ox shall be slain before your eyes and you shall not eat of it: your donkey shall be violently taken away from before your face and shall not be restored to you: your sheep shall be given to your enemies and you shall have none to rescue them.
32 Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people and your eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all the yom long; and there shall be no might in your hand.
33 The fruit of your land and all your labors, shall a nation that you know not eat up; and you shall be only oppressed and crushed always:
34 So that you shall be mad for the sight of your eyes and what you shall see.
35 YHUH shall smite you in the knees and in the legs, with a sore boil that cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.
36 YHUH shall bring you and your melech which you shall set over you, to a nation which neither you nor your ahvot have known; and there shall you serve other ahlohim, of wood and stone.
37 And you shall become an astonishment, a mishle and a mockery, among all goyim where YHUH shall lead you.
38 You shall carry much zera out into the field and shall gather little in; for the locust shall consume it.
39 You shall plant vineyards and dress them, but shall neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for worms shall eat them.
40 You shall have olive eytzim throughout all your coasts, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil; for your olives shall drop off.
41 You shall beget sons and daughters, but you shall not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
42 All your eytzim and the fruit of your land shall the locusts consume.
43 The ger that is within you shall come up above you very high; and you shall come down very low.
44 He shall lend to you and you shall not lend to him: he shall be the head and you shall be the tail.
45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and shall pursue you and overtake you, until you are destroyed; because you listened not to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer His mitzvoth and His chukim which He commanded you:
46 And they shall be upon you for an ot and for a wonder and upon your zera le-olam-va-ed.
47 Because you did not serve YHUH your Ahlohim with simcha and with gilah of lev, for the abundance of all things;
48 Therefore shall you serve your enemies that YHUH shall send against you, in hunger and in thirst and in nakedness and in want of all things: and He shall put a yoke of iron upon your neck, until He has destroyed you.
49 YHUH shall bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies; a nation whose tongue you shall not understand;
50 A nation of fierce countenance that shall not regard the person of the old, nor show chen to the young:
51 And they shall eat the fruit of your cattle and the fruit of your land, until you are destroyed: who also shall not leave you either grain, wine, or oil, or the increase of your cattle, or flocks of your sheep, until they have destroyed you.
52 And they shall besiege you in all your gates, until your high and fortified walls come down, in which you trusted, throughout all your land: and they shall besiege you in all your gates throughout all your land, which YHUH your Ahlohim has given you.
53 And you shall eat the fruit of your own gooff, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters, which YHUH your Ahlohim has given you, in the siege and in the tribulation, in which your enemies shall distress you:
54 So that the man that is tender among you and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother and toward the isha of his bosom and toward the remnant of his children that he shall leave:
55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he has nothing left to him in the siege and in the tribulation, in which your enemies shall distress you in all your gates.
56 The tender and delicate woman among you; who would not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil towards the husband of her bosom and toward her son and toward her daughter,
57 And toward her young one that comes out from between her feet and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and tribulation, in which your enemy shall distress you in your gates.
58 If you will not shomer to do all the Words of this Torah that are written in this scroll, that you may fear this wonderful and awesome Name,YHUH your Ahlohim;
59 Then YHUH will make your plagues extraordinary and the plagues of your zera, even terrible plagues of long duration and sore sicknesses of long duration.
60 Moreover He will bring upon you all the diseases of Mitzrayim, which you were afraid of; and they shall cleave to you.
61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the scroll of this Torah, those will YHUH bring upon you, until you are destroyed.
62 And you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the cochavim of the shamayim for multitude; because you would not obey the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim.
63 And it shall come to pass, that as YHUH rejoiced over you to do you tov and to multiply you; so YHUH will gilah over you to destroy you and to bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you are going to possess.
64 And YHUH shall scatter you among all peoples and goyim, from the one end of the earth even to the other; and there you shall serve other ahlohim, which neither you nor your ahvot have known, even wood and stone.
65 And among these goyim shall you find no ease, neither shall the sole of your foot have rest: but YHUH shall give you there a trembling lev and failing of eyes and sorrow of mind:
66 And your chayim shall hang in doubt before you; and you shall fear yom and lyla and shall have no assurance of your chayim:
67 In the boker you shall say, Would to Ahlohim it were evening! And at evening you shall say, Would to Ahlohim it were boker! For the fear of your lev with which you shall fear and for the sight of your eyes which you shall see.
68 And YHUH shall bring you into Mitzrayim again with ships, the derech of which I said to you, You shall see it no more again: and there you shall be sold to your enemies for avadim and female avadim and no man shall buy you.
29 These are the Words of the brit, which YHUH commanded Moshe to make with the children of Yisrael in the land of Moav, besides the brit that He made with them in Horev.
2 And Moshe called to kol Yisrael and said to them, You have seen all that YHUH did before your eyes in the land of Mitzrayim to Pharaoh and to all his avadim and to all his land;
3 The great trials which your eyes have seen, the signs and those great nisim:
4 Yet YHUH has not given you a lev to perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this yom.
5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes have not worn out upon you and your shoe has not worn out upon your foot.
6 You have not eaten lechem, neither have you drunk wine, or strong drink: that you might know that I AM YHUH your Ahlohim.
7 And when you came to this place, Sichon the melech of Cheshbon and Og the melech of Bashan, came out against us to battle and we smote them:
8 And we took their land and gave it for an inheritance to the Reuvenites and to the Gadites and to the half tribe of Menasheh.
9 Keep therefore the Words of this brit and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.
10 You stand this yom all of you before YHUH your Ahlohim; your captains of your tribes, your zechanim and your officers, with all the men of Yisrael,
11 Your little ones, your wives and your gerim that are in your camp, from the cutter of your wood to the drawer of your mayim:
12 That you should enter into brit with YHUH your Ahlohim and into His oath, which YHUH your Ahlohim makes with you this yom:
13 That He may establish you today for a people to Himself and that He may be to you an Ahlohim, as He has said to you and as He has sworn to your ahvot, to Avraham, to Yitzchak and to Yaakov.
14 Neither with you only do I make this brit and this oath;
15 But with him that stands here with us this yom before YHUH our Ahlohim and also with him that is not here with us this yom:
16 For you know how we have dwelt in the land of Mitzrayim; and how we came through the goyim that you passed by;
17 And you have seen their abominations and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:
18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or mishpacha, or tribe, whose lev turns away this yom from YHUH our Ahlohim, to go and serve the ahlohimof these goyim; lest there should be among you a root that bears bitterness and wormwood;
19 And it comes to pass, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his lev, saying, I shall have shalom, though I have my halacha in the imagination of my lev, to add drunkenness to thirst:
20 YHUH will not spare him, but then the anger of YHUH and His zeal shall be lit against that man and all the curses that are written in this scroll shall lie upon him and YHUH shall blot out his name from under the shamayim.
21 And YHUH shall separate him for evil out of all the tribes of Yisrael, according to all the curses of the brit that are written in this scroll of the Torah:
22 So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you and the ger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land and the sicknesses which YHUH has laid upon it;
23 And that the whole land is like that which is brimstone and salt and burning, that it is not sown, nor bears, nor any grass grows in it, like the overthrow of Sedom and Amorah, Admah and Zevoim, which YHUH overthrew in His anger and in His wrath:
24 Even all goyim shall say, Why has YHUH done this to this land? What means the heat of this great anger?
25 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the brit of YHUH Ahlohim of their ahvot, which He made with them when He brought them forth out of the land of Mitzrayim:
26 For they went and served other ahlohim and worshipped them, ahlohim whom they knew not and whom He had not given to them:
27 And the anger of YHUH was lit against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this scroll:
28 And YHUH rooted them out of their land in anger and in wrath and in great indignation and cast them into another land, as it is this yom.
29 The secret things belong to YHUH our Ahlohim: but those things that are revealed belong to us and to our children le-olam-va-ed, that we may do all the Words of this Torah.
30 And it shall come to pass, when all these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you and you shall call them to mind among all the goyim, where YHUH your Ahlohim has driven you,
2 And shall teshuvah to YHUH your Ahlohim and shall obey His voice according to all that I command you this yom, you and your children, with all your lev and with all your being;
3 That then YHUH your Ahlohim will turn your captivity and have rachamim upon you and will return and gather you from all the goyim, where YHUH your Ahlohim has scattered you.
4 If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts of the shamayim, from there will YHUH your Ahlohim gather you and from there will He fetch you:
5 And YHUH your Ahlohim will bring you into the land that your ahvot possessed and you shall possess it; and He will do you tov and multiply you above your ahvot.
6 And YHUH your Ahlohim will perform brit-milah upon your lev and the lev of your zera, to love YHUH your Ahlohim with all your lev and with all your being, that you may live.
7 And YHUH your Ahlohim will put all these curses upon your enemies and on them that hate you, who persecute you.
8 And you shall make teshuvah and obey the voice of YHUH and do all His mitzvoth which I command you this yom.
9 And YHUH your Ahlohim will make you have excess in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your gooff and in the fruit of your cattle and in the fruit of your land, for tov: for YHUH will again gilah over you for tov, as He rejoiced over your ahvot:
10 If you shall listen to the voice of YHUH your Ahlohim, to shomer His mitzvoth and His chukim which are written in this scroll of the Torah and if you turn to YHUH your Ahlohim with all your lev and with all your being.
11 For this mitzvah, which I command you this yom, is not hidden from you, neither is it far off.
12 It is not in the shamayim, that you should say, Who shall go up for us to the shamayim and bring it to us, that we may hear and do it?
13 Neither is it beyond the sea that you should say, Who shall go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear and do it?
14 But The Word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your lev, and in your hand, that you may do it.
15 See, I have set before you this yom chayim and tov and death and evil;
16 In that I command you this yom to love YHUH your Ahlohim, to have your halacha in His halachot and to shomer His mitzvoth and His chukim and His mishpatim, that you may live and multiply: and YHUH your Ahlohim shall bless you in the land which you are going to possess.
17 But if your lev turns away, so that you will not hear, but shall be drawn away to worship other ahlohim and serve them;
18 I declare to you this yom, that you shall surely perish and that you shall not prolong your yamim upon the land, which you pass over the Yarden to go to possess.
19 I call the shamayim and earth to record this yom against you, that I have set before you chayim and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose chayim, that both you and your zera may live:
20 That you may love YHUH your Ahlohim and that you may obey His voice and that you may cleave to Him: for He is your chayim and the length of your yamim: that you may dwell in the land which YHUH swore to your ahvot, to Avraham, to Yitzchak and to Yaakov, to give them.
31 And Moshe went and spoke these words to kol Yisrael.
2 And he said to them, I am one hundred twenty years old this yom; I can no more go out and come in: also YHUH has said to me, You shall not go over this Yarden.
3 YHUH your Ahlohim, He will go over before you and He will destroy these goyim from before you and you shall possess them: and Yahusha, he shall go over before you, as YHUH has said.
4 And YHUH shall do to them as He did to Sichon and to Og, melechim of the Amorites and to their land which He destroyed.
5 And YHUH shall deliver them up before your face, that you may do to them according to all the mitzvoth which I have commanded you.
6 Be strong and of a tov courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for YHUH your Ahlohim, He it is that does go with you; He will not fail you, nor forsake you.
7 And Moshe called to Yahusha and said to him in the sight of kol Yisrael, Be strong and of a tov courage: for you must go with this people to the land which YHUH has sworn to their ahvot to give them; and you shall cause them to inherit it.
8 And YHUH, He it is that does go before you; He will be with you, He will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed.
9 And Moshe wrote this Torah in a scroll and delivered it to the kohanim, the sons of Lewi, who bore the Ark of the Testimony of YHUH and to all the zechanim of Yisrael.
10 And Moshe commanded them, saying, At the end of seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, at Chag Sukkot,
11 When kol Yisrael comes to appear before YHUH your Ahlohim in the place that He has chosen, you shall read this Torah before kol Yisrael in their hearing.
12 Gather the people together, men and women and children, and your ger that is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn and fear YHUH your Ahlohim and shomer to do all the Words of this Torah:
13 And that their children, who have not known anything, may hear and learn to fear YHUH your Ahlohim, as long as you live in the land which you go over the Yarden to possess.
14 And YHUH said to Moshe, See, your yamim approach when you must die: call Yahusha and present yourselves in the Mishkan of the kehilla, that I may give him a command. And Moshe and Yahusha went and presented themselves in the Mishkan of the kehilla.
15 And YHUH appeared in the Mishkan in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the Mishkan.
16 And YHUH said to Moshe, See, you shall sleep with your ahvot; and this people will rise up and whore after the ahlohim of the gerim of the land, where they are going to be among them and will forsake Me and break My brit that I have made with them.
17 Then My anger shall be lit against them in that yom and I will forsake them and I will hide My face from them and they shall be devoured and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that yom, are not these evils come upon us because our Ahlohim is not among us?
18 And I will surely hide My face in that yom for all the evils that they shall do, in that they will have turned to other ahlohim.
19 Now therefore write this shir for yourselves and teach it to the children of Yisrael: put it in their mouths, that this shir may be a witness for Me against the children of Yisrael.
20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I swore to their ahvot, that flows with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves and grown fat; then will they turn to other ahlohim and serve them and provoke Me and break My brit.
21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles have befallen them, that this shir shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their zera: for I know their imaginations that they entertain, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I swore to them.
22 Moshe therefore wrote this shir the same yom and taught it to the children of Yisrael.
23 And he gave Yahusha the son of Nun a command and said, Be strong and of tov courage: for you shall bring the children of Yisrael into the land which I swore to them: and I will be with you.
24 And it came to pass, when Moshe had made an end of writing the Words of this Torah in a scroll, until they were finished,
25 That Moshe commanded the Lewiym, who bore the Ark of the Testimony of YHUH, saying,
26 Take this scroll of the Torah and put it at the side of the Ark of the Testimony of YHUH your Ahlohim, that it may be there for a witness against you.
27 For I know your rebellion and your stiff neck: see, while I am yet alive with you this yom, you have been rebellious against YHUH; and how much more after my death?
28 Gather to me all the zechanim of your tribes and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears and call the shamayim and earth to record it against them.
29 For I know that after my death you will fully corrupt yourselves and turn aside from the halacha which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter-yamim; because you will do evil in the sight of YHUH, to provoke Him to anger through the work of your hands.
30 And Moshe spoke in the ears of all the kehilla of Yisrael the Words of this shir, until they were ended.
32 Give ear-hazinu, O you shamayim and I will speak; and shema, O earth, to the Words of my mouth.
2 My doctrine-Torah shall drop as the rain; my speech shall drop down as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb and as the showers upon the grass:
3 Because I will publish the Name of YHUH: ascribe greatness to our Ahlohim.
4 He is The Rock, His work is perfect: for all His halachot are just: An El of emet and without iniquity, tzadik and right is He.
5 They have corrupted themselves, they are blemished and are not His children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
6 Are these the things you return to YHUH, O foolish and unwise people? Is not He your Abba that has bought you? Has He not made you and established you?
7 Remember the yamim of old, consider the years of many generations: ask your Abba, and He will show you; your zechanim and they will tell you.
8 When Elyon divided to the goyim their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Ahdahm, He set the boundaries of the goyim according to the number of the heavenly malachim of Ahlohim and Yisrael’s sons.
9 For YHUH 's portion is His people; Yaakov His allotted inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land and in the wasted, howling wilderness; He led him about, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them and bears them on her wings:
12 So YHUH alone did lead him and there was no strange el with him.
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and He made him to suck honey out of the rock and oil out of the flinty rock;
14 Butter of cattle and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs and rams of the breed of Bashan and goats, with the finest of wheat; and you did drink the pure dahm of the grape, the tov wine.
15 But Yeshurun grew fat and kicked: you are waxed fat, you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness; then he forsook Ahloha who made him and lightly esteemed The Rock of his salvation.
16 They provoked Him to zeal with strange ahlohim, with abominations they provoked Him to anger.
17 They sacrificed to shedim, not to Ahloha; to ahlohim whom they knew not, to new ones that popped up; whom your ahvot feared not.
18 Of The Rock that begat you, you are not mindful and have forgotten the El that formed you.
19 And when YHUH saw it, He abhorred them because of their provoking of His sons and of His daughters.
20 And 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 emunah.
21 They have moved Me to zeal with that which is not El; they have provoked Me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to zeal with those who are Lo-Ami; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
22 For a fire is lit in My anger and shall burn to the lowest Sheol and shall consume the land with its increase and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
23 I will gather evils upon them; I will send My arrows upon them.
24 They shall be wasted with hunger and devoured with burning heat and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
25 The sword without and fear within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the nursing child also with the man of gray hairs.
26 I said, I would scatter them into the four corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely and lest they should say, Our hand is high and YHUH has not done all this.
28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any binah in them.
29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
30 How should one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them and YHUH had given them up?
31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves are shophtim.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sedom and of the fields of Amorah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their wine is the poison of serpents and the cruel venom of vipers.
34 Is not this laid up in store with Me and sealed up among My treasures?
35 To Me belongs vengeance and repayment; their foot shall slide in due time: for the yom of their calamity is at hand and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
36 For YHUH shall judge His people and have rachamim for His avadim, when He sees that their power is gone and there is none remaining bond, or free.
37 And He shall say, Where are their ahlohim, their rock in whom they trusted?
38 Who did eat the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their drink offerings? Let them rise up and help you and be your protection.
39 See now that I, even I, AM He and there is no ahlohim with Me: I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of My hand.
40 For I lift up My hand to the shamayim and say, I live le-olam-va-ed.
41 If I sharpen My flashing sword and My hand takes hold on mishpat; I will render vengeance to My enemies and will reward them that hate Me.
42 I will make My arrows drunk with dahm and My sword shall devour flesh; and that with the dahm of the slain and of the captives, from the keter of the head of the enemy.
43 Gilah, O shamayim, with Him and let all the heavenly malachim worship Him: O gilah you goyim with His people, and let all the sons of Ahlohim strengthen themselves in Him; for He will avenge the dahm of His sons and will render mishpat to His adversaries and will reward them that hate Him and YHUH will make a keporah for the land and for His people.
44 And Moshe came and spoke all the Words of this shir in the ears of the people, he and Yahusha the son of Nun.
45 And Moshe made an end of speaking all these words to kol Yisrael:
46 And he said to them, Set your levavot to all the words that I testify among you this yom, which you shall command your children to shomer and to do, all the Words of this Torah.
47 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your chayim: and through this thing you shall prolong your yamim in the land, which you go over the Yarden to possess.
48 And YHUH spoke to Moshe that same yom, saying,
49 Get up into this har Avarim, to Har Nevo, which is in the land of Moav that is opposite Yericho; and see the land of Kanaan, which I give to the children of Yisrael for a possession:
50 And die on the har where you go up and be gathered to your people; as Aharon your brother died on Har Hor and was gathered to his people:
51 Because you trespassed against Me among the children of Yisrael at the mayim of Merivah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Tzin; because you did not set Me apart in the midst of the children of Yisrael.
52 Yet you shall see the land before you; but you shall not go there to the land that I give the children of Yisrael.
33 And this is the blessing, with which Moshe the man of Ahlohim blessed the children of Yisrael before his death.
2 And he said, YHUH came from Mt. Senai and rose up from Seir [the gate of The Lamb’s city the Heavenly Yahrushalayim], to them [Yisrael]; He shone [manifested Himself ] forth and arrived from Har Paran [as an ornament to govern His bride] and He [Yahusha-The Word] came with tens of thousands [teachers & witnesses] of-with kidushim [angelic witnesses]: from out of His Right Hand-Side went a Fiery Torah [fiery Words of da’at, chochmah, languages] for them [Yisrael & the goyim].
3 Yes, He loved the people; all His kidushim are in your hand: and they sat down at your feet; every one shall receive of Your Words.
4 Moshe commanded us a Torah, even the inheritance of the kehilla of Yaakov.
5 And He was Melech in Yeshurun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Yisrael were gathered together.
6 Let Reuven live and not die; and let not his men be few.
7 And this is the blessing of Yahudah: and he said, Shema, YHUH, to the voice of Yahudah and bring him to his people: let his hands be sufficient for him; and be a help to him from his enemies.
8 And of Lewi he said, Let your Thummim and your Urim be with your Kadosh-One, whom you did test at Massah and with whom you did contend at the mayim of Merivah;
9 Who said to his abba and to his eema, I have not seen him; neither did he acknowledge his brothers, or know his own children: for they have observed Your Word and kept Your brit.
10 They shall teach Yaakov Your mishpatim and Yisrael Your Torah: they shall put incense before You and whole burnt sacrifices upon Your altar.
11 YHUH bless, his substance and accept the work of his hands; smite through the loins of those that rise against him and of those that hate him, that they rise not again.
12 And of Benyamin he said, The beloved of YHUH shall dwell in safety by Him; and YHUH shall cover him all the yom long and he shall dwell between His shoulders.
13 And of Yoseph he said, Blessed of YHUH is his land, with the precious things of the shamayim, with the dew and with the deep that lies beneath,
14 And with the precious fruits brought forth by the shemesh and with the precious things put forth by the yarayach,
15 And with the best things of the ancient mountains and with the precious things of the everlasting hill,
16 And with the precious things of the earth and fullness of it and with the tov will of Him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the head of Yoseph and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brothers.
17 His splendor is like a bachor bull and his horns are like the horns of the rhinocerus: with them he shall push the peoples together to the ends of the earth: and they are the myriads of Efrayim and they are the thousands of Menasheh.
18 And of Zevulon he said, Gilah, Zevulon, in your going out; and, Yissachar, in your tents.
19 They shall call the peoples to My Har; and there they shall offer sacrifices of tzedakah: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas and of treasures hidden in the sand.
20 And of Gad he said, Blessed be he that enlarges Gad: he dwells as a lion and tears the arm, yes the keter of the head.
21 And he provided the first part for himself because there, the portion of the Torah giver, was hidden; and he came with the heads of the people, he did the tzedakah of YHUH and his mishpatim with Yisrael.
22 And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.
23 And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, satisfied with chen and full with the bracha of YHUH: possess the west and the south.
24 And of Asher he said, Let Asher be blessed with children; let him be acceptable to his brothers and let him dip his foot in oil.
25 Your shoes shall be iron and brass; and as your yamim, so shall your strength be.
26 There is none like the El of Yeshurun, who rides upon the shamayim to help you and in His excellency rides the skies.
27 The Ahlohim of old is your refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms: and He shall thrust out the enemy from before you; and shall say, Destroy them.
28 Yisrael then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Yaakov shall be upon a land of grain and wine; also His shamayim shall drop down dew.
29 Favored are you, O Yisrael: who is like you, O people saved by YHUH, the Shield of your help, who is the Sword of Your Excellency! And your enemies shall be found to be liars to you; and you shall tread down their high places.
34 And Moshe went up from the plains of Moav to the har of Nevo, to the top of Pisgah that is opposite Yericho. And YHUH showed him all the land of Gilad, as far as Dan,
2 And all of Naphtali and the land of Efrayim and Menasheh and all the land of Yahudah, to the Western Sea,
3 And the south and the plain of the Valley of Yericho, the city of palm eytzim, to Tzoar.
4 And YHUH said to him, This is the land which I swore to Avraham, to Yitzchak and to Yaakov, saying, I will give it to your zera: I have caused you to see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.
5 So Moshe the eved of YHUH died there in the land of Moav, according to The Word of YHUH.
6 And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moav, opposite Beit-Peor: but no man knows of his burial place to this yom.
7 And Moshe was one hundred twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force gone.
8 And the children of Yisrael wept for Moshe in the plains of Moav thirty yamim: so the yamim of weeping and mourning for Moshe were ended.
9 And Yahusha the son of Nun was full of The Ruach of chochmah; for Moshe had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Yisrael listened to him and did as YHUH commanded Moshe.
10 And there arose not a navi since, in Yisrael, like Moshe, whom YHUH knew panayim-el-panayim,
11 As evidenced by all the signs and the wonders, which YHUH sent him to do in the land of Mitzrayim to Pharaoh and to all his avadim and to all his land,
12 And in all that his mighty hand did and in all the great fearsome deeds that Moshe showed forth in the sight of kol Yisrael. X
1:1 An intense recital of many of the key benchmarks in our nation’s history.
1:11 Four million Yisraelites including men, women and children left Egypt. Yet Moses said that this number in order to fulfill the brit of physical multiplicity would be multiplied by one thousand. That brings us to a latter-day total of approximately four billion, or four out of every six humans, whether they know who they really are, or not.
1:36 Considered Jewish even though his father was not a native.
2:5 Esau is not homeless. He has Mt. Seir but doesn't like his home and due to anger and jealousy has come to the land of Israel to destroy Jews in his unresolved anger over selling his birthright.
2:25 The whole world fears Israel's power, influence and might, now and forever more.
4:6 Torah will separate us above all nations.
4:12 The nation didn’t see Messiah, as did Moses.
4:13 Symbolizing His Torah for the eventuality of both houses of Israel.
4:24 This warning later repeated to Renewed Covenant Israel.
4:27 Few in recognizable numbers, not actual numbers since they will look and behave like nations.
4:29 Always the answer.
4:30 Generally any kind of tribulation, specifically the time of Jacob’s Trouble, or the Great Tribulation.
4:31 Efrayim has to exist and they cannot possibly disappear, or be lost. The same applies to Judah, since YAH promised to never fully destroy any part of Israel.
4:34 A metaphoric expression referring to Messiah as the right Arm of YAH The Father.
4:42 Unmerited favor.
4:44 “Vezot haTorah asher sahm Moshe” used in the synagogue Torah liturgy.
5:11 Bring it to nothing.
5:14 All Israel benefits from Torah.
5:21 The SP has the worship on Mt. Gerazim as the 10th commandment.
5:27 Israel always needed an intercessor, as they were unable, or unwilling to hear directly from YAH. The same holds true today for both houses, for without Messiah, neither house will hear clearly and without fear.
6:3 Physical multiplicity.
6:4 The Shema, as originally given. YAH is Echad not yachid, meaning He is and always will be, a plurality in divinity. This understanding will later be called the MIND of Messiah and will be a revelation of the plurality of divinity in the ONE Creator-Savior, as hidden in the original version of The Shema. This was originally a single command, as well as the greatest commandment. However, Messiah took another Torah commandment, to love our neighbor as ourselves, found in Leviticus 19:18 and added it to the original Shema, so as to deal with men’s horizontal hatred in their hearts, even while they claimed to worship YHUH. These two commandments in the New Covenant amended Shema are more complete and are one command, even though they are known as the two greatest commandments. Later in Mark chapter 12 verses 30-31 and Matthew chapter 22 verses 34-48, Messiah adds the term “with all your mind.” He then goes on to teach a parable about Messiah being David’s Master YAH, while at the same time being David’s offspring, meaning from his family’s royal lineage. This MIND, always there, but hidden in the original Shema of Deuteronomy 6:4, was what was missing from the scribe and the Pharisees testing Him, along with the Jewish leaders and people of His day. In Mark 12:34, Messiah tells the scribe that though he got The original Shema right literally, that he was only near but not yet in The Kingdom. Why? Because the scribe did not believe and had not yet had a revelation that Messiah was and is YHUH come in His own non-human flesh. The mind then is a requirement to serve YAH, as hidden in the original Shema’s clear statement of the plurality of divinity. The Mind of Messiah is what brings us into a covenant with Him. Those without the Mind as stated in the amended Shema, are close but not yet there. Comparing Scripture with Scripture, according to Philippians chapter 2 verses 5-11, along with First Corinthians chapter 2:16, we see that THE MIND, is the clear required understanding that Messiah is in fact YAH come in His own flesh, blood and Spirit and not as a hybrid deity from both the dust and from heaven with allegedly a human mother and a Heavenly Father. The MIND of Messiah does not see His deity as a stumbling block, as nor as blasphemy, nor as robbing the Father’s glory. Philippians chapter 2 goes on to say that because of this truth and the finished work of Messiah, that Messiah has been given and rewarded with the most Set Apart Name in the entire universe. YHUH He is, that same Name as His Father! They are ECHAD, as clearly declared in John 10:30. We can see therefore that as believers we must focus on the amended and adjusted Shema, just as Adon Messiah taught us, rather than The Shema that was given originally, that did not contain a full revelation of the MIND of Messiah, seeing that He had not yet come to earth. So, to fully grasp the full reality of Messiah’s deity, was not yet totally possible. Today all believers must refer to and believe and practice the amended Shema, in order to be saved and understand as did King David did, that Messiah is YHUH as is required in First Corinthians 12:3. If anyone rests their redemption on the original and not the amended New Covenant Shema confession, they may have head knowledge but not a revelation from heaven and simply do not have the Set Apart Spirit required to be saved, as no one can see Messiah as YHUH, without the Set Apart Spirit, which only a recognition of Messiah’s deity, can grant. We can see then that those that do not have His Spirit, cannot be saved, because the Set Apart Spirit is what gives true believers the ability to declare Him as both David’s Master YAH, as well as his family downline. Only those that adopt the amended Shema are the redeemed Israel of YHUH and are in the New Covenant as declared in Galatians 6:16.The LXX has mind instead of heart.
6:8 Known today as tefillin, or phylacteries but is correctly understood to be the memory and taste of freedom, rather than a physical object.
6:9 Mezuzot, or scriptures put on the doorposts of all Yisraelite homes.
6:13 For oaths.
6:25 This does not mean that Torah justifies. It means that our righteousness in Messiah’s atonement will be guarded and kept secure by obedience, which protects us from falling away.
7:2To guarantee set apartness and victory.
7:4 Redeemed Yisraelites must not intermarry with those who still do not obey Torah, even if they profess a mental assent to salvation. Efraimites and Jews are free to marry each other, as long as both love Messiah and Torah.
7:7 Yisraelites were few at first prior to divine election.
7:9 If a generation is 50 years and YAH promises love to 1,000 generations of Israel, that means His love for Israel is for a minimum of 50,000 years. That means that there is no church apart from Israel, the single elect community of faith for all believers and set apart ones.
8:7 DSS, LXX.
8:10 Proper “grace after meals.” Hebrews say “grace” after meals, when they have fully experienced YAH’s good provision. “Grace” before meals is not scriptural, though it is permitted to say a brief blessing, or thank you.
8:13 According to promise.
8:18 DSS, LXX.
8:18 Wealth for Israel is a sign of the brit of being Israel, not a guarantee of eternal life in Messiah. Also if YAH blesses us with this world’s goods, it is so we through our free will offerings and tithes can establish the brit among both houses of Israel.
10:8 How far we have fallen?
10:16 Be born again O Israel! Known in Hebrew as brit ha heart.
10:19 A word in due season for the House of Judah, as they welcome back returning Efrayim-Israel.
10:20 Swear by using it, not swear that no one really knows how to pronounce it.
10:22 Following the Torah of two, or more witnesses here, from the LXX Shemot 1:5 and from the Renewed Covenant in Acts 7:14.
10:22 A nation of four million one of the largest of the ancient world, about to become 4 billion in the end of days.
11:1 Even after Messiah comes.
11:8 DSS, LXX.
11:29 From where we get the English word “evil.”
11:30 SP. YAH gives us 7 geographical & clear signs where Gerazim is located, so man cannot claim that its further south in Judah, as the rabbinical followers do,
12:3 Israel must destroy the name of false deities, even though they may be familiar and comfortable. Only YAH’s set apart Name should be in our midst.
12:11 SP. Has chosen. In Torah, it was Gerazim alone. Later, YAH allowed a house to be built in Jerusalem. Keep in mind that the Jeruslaem House, YAH allowed based on David & Solomon’s heart to do so. But Gerazim in the Torah, is the only place He ever actually commanded. All such Torah references refer to Gerazim. Post Torah references, in the Tanach, mostly refer to Jerusalem. Ezra in his XIV compilation changed has chosen, to will choose about 21 times in total.
12:15 As Messiah said, YAH makes it rain on the just and the unjust to feed them, even those who are and remain His sworn enemies. Here is YAH’s unmerited favor clearly defined in the Torah.
12:19 Israel is eternally responsible for providing for their leaders in both covenants.
12:25 Drinking and eating blood is characteristic of pagan worship and diet.
13:2 Signs coming to pass are not in itself a validating mark of a person’s ministry. The greater question is do they point people to YAH , or away from YAH and do they follow a Torah-obedient life?
13:8 We as Israel cannot agree with anyone refusing to learn and then use YAH’s Name. We are forbidden from agreeing just to avoid confrontation, which is a form of compromise.
13:10 This is what Judah’s leaders wrongly believed Messiah was doing. Namely, pulling people to other elohim, when in fact as He said He was not drawing men after Himself, but restoring them to His Father.
13:17 Paganism destroys Israel from within.
14:25 Moneychangers in the Temple were fine according to Torah. The problem the moneychangers later developed, was when they engaged in dishonest business and sold blemished animals for sacrifice.
14:29 A different tithe for the needy and the Lewite. Normal tithes paid annually belonged to YAH.
15:8 Giving is fine. But not to someone merely taking advantage of you.
15:11 Yisraelites are their brothers’ keepers.
16:1 The first month of the spring, not limited to the first barley crop. The sign, is the Spring Equinox or Turn of the Year.
16:6 After Temple was built.
16:9 Note that we are to number seven complete weeks, which must also include seven complete weekly Shabbats.
16:9 On Day One, the first day of the week, following the conclusion of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on Aviv 21 yearly. Firstfruits of barley is yearly on Aviv 26, as per the priestly Temple times.
16:16 Ascension feasts, or shalosh regallim.
16:22 That would include pillars with symbols like steeples.
17:11This verse is used by traditional Judaism to prove that the unsaved rabbis lead Israel and that somehow their rulings are binding on the Jewish people. But these verses speak of kohanim and judges in Temple times. The Sanhedrin, or the 70 ruling judges have not sat to judge Israel for some 1,700 years.
17:17 YAH does not limit set apart men to one horse, one piece of gold or one wife. The concept here is not to multiply needless things to excess, as will always happen, if the king makes alliances with the pagans and causes Israel to return to their ways as seen in verse 16. This verse is not a prohibition against more than one piece of gold, silver, multiple horses or more than one wife, as some have claimed. It is a warning to avoid alliances with them [pagans] and the idolatrous practices of Egypt, which leads to excess and serving the flesh.
17:19 Every believer today should do the same.
18:5 Don’t tithe to any man who does not stand to minister in YAH’s true Name, a requirement for even receiving tithes.
18:19 According to Renewed Covenant Israel and the Renewed Covenant, this promise is of The Messiah, who (like Moses) would be a final and wonderful Deliverer of Israel, by bringing the Paschal blood and the words of The Father’s Torah. Islam claims this to be fulfilled in Mohammad. The problem with that understanding is that the promise is that Messiah will come from among Moses’s brethren, or the children of Israel, not Esau.
19:8 The promise of prosperity.
19:9 More mercy.
19:21 Judicial justice not mutilation.
20:8 Only willing and focused soldiers can be Yisraelites. All else are sent home. Large numbers don’t help Israel because YAH is our Man of war.
20:14 The only exception to this rule of sparing women and children is when there is paganism involved, so that they do not influence Israel.
21:23 Which is why Messiah’s body had to be down before nightfall, for He became a curse for the people and the land in order to cleanse them.
22:4 Brotherhood in Israel. This speaks of physical and spiritual brotherhood.
22:5 This is the problem Paul dealt with in the Yisraelite congregation in Corinth. As seen in First Corinthians 11, where men are not allowed to veil their face with hair, or a veil of hanging fabric.
22:9 Torah of Kilayim proving that all believers are Israel, for the olive tree cannot contain differing branches, or differing seed. All branches are Israel.
22:10 YAH’s kingdom cannot be plowed with a “Jew and gentile” theology, but only with men of the same breed, which is why YAH sees all believers as the seed of Israel.
22:11 See note for verse #9.
22:11 Only these two fabrics cannot be mixed. No mention is made of mixing other fabrics.
23:25 An unmerited favor provision for the poor in Israel.
24:4 Only with the death of the husband can she remarry, which is why Messiah died to release the collective bride back to The Father.
24:5 Unmerited favor. Biblical honeymoon is one year.
24:6 Torah forbids a creditor from taking anything from a debtor that he needs in order to make a living, or to survive. That is unmerited favor.
24:10 Respecting a man's private property.
24:15 Biblical pay is daily, not weekly.
24:20 Unmerited favor.
24:21 Unmerited favor.
25:4 Meaning that he should not be deprived of food and nourishment while laboring. The same applies to servants of YAH.
25:9 A warning to those who refuse to work with Messiah to gather and restore all the brethren from both houses of Israel and refuse to build their brother’s house.
25:13 Another warning to those who treat Judah and Efrayim differently, favoring one over the other, such as forcing Efraimites to prove something that cannot be proven such as their ancient genealogy, while not requiring Jews to prove their own genealogy by factual Temple records that no longer exist. All Israel must learn to walk with equity towards both houses.
25:14 In the house of Israel as well.
25:15 Long life and YAH’s favor is a benefit of treating Judah and Efrayim equally with love and respect.
25:16 Yisraelite brethren mistreat each other by using unequal weights and measures.
26:5 The Aramean was Laban, who tried to destroy Jacob from YAH’s will. Note that the original patriarchs and their wives were not Jewish but Hebrews and mixed with the House of Aram. Therefore all non-natives who join Israel by choice through Messiah, are also considered Yisraelites like the patriarchs themselves.
26:5 SP, Geneva & Tyndale translations.
26:5 Physical multiplicity.
27:4 The DSS 4Q Deut. 27:4b-6, match the Samaritan Torah. Why would YAH’s altar be built on the mount of cursing, rather than blessing, when He pleads with us to choose blessing? Why would he place His set apart Name on the altar of evil? Moreover this correction matches the flow and context of verse 12. Joshua Ch.8:30 is another place the XIV and Ezra must have changed the text.
27:12 It is interesting to see that both Judah and Joseph were among those tribes doing the blessing, seeing that both of them would play a key role in bringing both spiritual and physical blessings to all Israel.
27:26 Efrayim’s cursed past was due to violating this truth.
28:10 Are you called by that Name?
28:25 A prophecy of Israel’s dispersions into all nations for their disobedience to Torah and also to fulfill brit to make Israel the fullness of all nations.
28:36 The nation is Islam, amongst whom Israel’s seed is scattered, as many have sadly adopted Allah worship, based on the Kabbah in Mecca, the house of stone and its idols of wood.
28:37 Not just Anglo-Saxon nations as some erroneously teach.
28:37 Exile foretold.
28:42 The Hebrew used here for locusts is hatz-latzal. However, Aravim-Arabs, is another Hebrew word for locusts, which is similar to the Hebrew word for Arabs-Aravim, or latter day Muslims, showing us who will eat from its fruit and settle Israel’s land.
28:48 Not totally, but until He has destroyed their pride and self-sufficiency.
28:50 Most likely Rome with the symbol of the eagle. Rome caused the dispersion of Jewish-Israel and swallowed the Greeks, among whom many Efraimites dwelt.
28:53 Possible dual application, with the same thing occurring in the time of Jacob's Trouble, as in the days of the Roman exile of the Jews.
28:62 Few in recognizable, or identifiable numbers, not in actual numbers, since most Yisraelites live and act like nations thus are not distinguishable from them, unless a reawakening and regeneration occurs by faith in Messiah.
28:65 The exile of the whole nation to all nations.
28:68 This could be a spiritual Egypt, or at various points in later history, Yisraelites fled to Egypt for protection only to be discovered and captured. These isolated incidents were not national bondage, so there may be a spiritual deeper meaning here as well.
29:1 The same brit renewed on the east bank of the Jordan. We see no new brit, but a recital and renewal. The Renewed Covenant of Messiah should be viewed as the renewal and internalization of the Torah, as opposed to a totally new brit with totally foreign concepts.
29:15 With us and our children forever.
29:28 Eretz Acheret-An interesting phrase, since all other Scriptures of exile, speak of all nations. Taken with those, here is a single nation of exile, singled out from other nations of exile. This could definitely be a clear reference to the United States of America, which houses literally hundreds of millions of both Jews and Efraimites, in varying forms of Christian expression. This verse in Deuteronomy refers to the lost ten tribes who are ordained to remain in "Eretz Acheret" until close to the end of this age. The American hemisphere when first revealed in our era to European eyes was known as "The New World,” another translation of the term “eretz acheret.”
29:29 In context, the secret things are the whereabouts of all of Israel’s exiles.
30:1 All nations.
30:3 Through and by the mission of Messiah.
30:5 Physical multiplication.
30:14 Confession of faith in the Living Torah Messiah and the written Torah.
30:14 Messiah. Romans 10:8-10.
30:14 DSS, LXX. We are to carry out His Word with action, not just faith. Faith without works is dead.
30:14 According to the Renewed Covenant, the Torah itself is the word of faith renewed through the Good News and proclaimed by the apostles, as opposed to a dispensationalist mindset of Torah versus a new faith.
30:16 Physical multiplicity.
31:12 Notice that the children did not go to separate children’s programs but were required to hear all of Torah with the adults.
31:13 Performed in Joshua 8:30-35. Verse 30 should read Gerazim, as seen in the DSS Cave 4.
31:29 Starting in circa 33CE.
32:3 A defining characteristic of the true Israel. Those who refuse to proclaim the true Name of The Father cannot be considered Israel, as both heaven and earth record and testify the same along with Moses’s Song.
32:6 Idolatry and forsaking His Name.
32:7 The concept of YAH as Father is not a Christian invention.
32:8 Speaking of YAH’s command for key heavenly messengers to guard specific nations (LXX and DSS).
32:8 Alternate translation according to the Peshitta and Masoretic texts reads: “According to the number of the sons of Israel.” If one accepts this rendering, then the nations were divided geographically based on the criteria of how many of Israel’s exiles that nation could hold. Based on that sole criteria YAH would allot a certain amount of land. This rendering further displays the vastness of the billions of Yisraelites in the latter-days.
32:9 Jacob’s inheritance will eventually fill all nations.
32:15 Pet name for Israel meaning “Upright.”
32:21 This reference refers to Israel being stunned and angered by a people that resemble non-Yisraelites in culture and lifestyle, claiming to be the “Israel of YAH ” in the latter-days. From Scriptures in Hosea 1:9, First Peter 2:10 and Romans 9:25-27, the Lo-Ami foolish, or goy-nation, was and is returning Efrayim-Israel.
32:26 Efrayim-Israel, all but forgotten by mankind until the last days and the coming of Messiah.
32:43 Speaking of Messiah as quoted in Ivrim/Hebrews 1:6 and from the LXX.
32:43 From the LXX and quoted in Romans 15:10 validating this usage encouraging all nations to be Israel and join in with Israel, not Israel with other religions, or nations.
33:2 Reference to Messiah.
33:2 A literal rendering based on the roots of these words and names. This understanding points to Messiah-The Miltha-Logos, as the Torah Giver not The Father, as no man or nation, can live after seeing The Father, even if they could. Messiah came to Senai with teachers who had entered immortal tifereth, like Enoch and the patriarchs, along with clean angels, together being the great cloud of witnesses, that descended with Messiah and covered Senai in fire and clouds. This betrothal required heavenly witnesses in the clouds and the Torah was given in 70 fiery tongues of knowledge, so that all nations could be grafted into His bride, Israel. This single verse can be summarized as the 5th Gospel.
33:5 YAH is truly King when He receives esteem for gathering all Israel back as one in spite of their exile and hard hearts.
33:17 Just as a goring rhinocerus thrusts things forward and outward after wounding its victim, so will the multitudes of wounded Israel be found in Efrayim-Israel, or the collective term for the later 10 tribes of the northern kingdom. This dominant tribe of the north will be responsible for pushing the people of Israel into all the nations, as outlined in many other references.
33:19 Primarily the Swiss.
33:20 To house the scepter.
34:5 Joshua probably penned this verse until the chapter’s end. An alternative view is that Moses wrote it himself through his own tears.
34:6 DSS and LXX read “and they,” meaning the children of Israel buried their leader.
