Moses Reviews the Covenant

2Moses summoned all the Israelites and said to them, "You have seen with your own eyes everything the LORD did in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to his whole country -H4872H7121H3478H559H7200H3068H6213H5869H776H4714H6547H5650H776 3all the great tests of strength, the miraculous signs, and the amazing wonders.H1419H4531H5869H7200H226H1419H4159 4But to this day the LORD has not given you minds that understand, nor eyes that see, nor ears that hear!H3068H5414H3820H3045H5869H7200H241H8085H3117 5For forty years I led you through the wilderness, yet your clothes and sandals did not wear out.H3212H705H8141H4057H8008H1086H5275H1086H7272 6You ate no bread and drank no wine or other alcoholic drink, but he gave you food so you would know that he is the LORD your God.H398H3899H8354H3196H7941H3045H3068H430 7"When we came here, King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan came out to fight against us, but we defeated them.H935H4725H5511H4428H2809H5747H4428H1316H3318H7125H4421H5221 8We took their land and gave it to the tribes of Reuben and Gad and to the half-tribe of Manasseh as their grant of land.H3947H776H5414H5159H7206H1425H2677H7626H4520 9"Therefore, obey the terms of this covenant so that you will prosper in everything you do.H8104H1697H1285H6213H7919H6213 10All of you—tribal leaders, elders, officers, all the men of Israel—are standing today in the presence of the LORD your God.H5324H3117H6440H3068H430H7218H7626H2205H7860H376H3478 11Your little ones and your wives are with you, as well as the foreigners living among you who chop your wood and carry your water.H2945H802H1616H7130H4264H2404H6086H7579H4325 12You are standing here today to enter into the covenant of the LORD your God. The LORD is making this covenant, including the curses.H5674H1285H3068H430H423H3068H430H3772H3117 13By entering into the covenant today, he will establish you as his people and confirm that he is your God, just as he promised you and as he swore to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.H6965H3117H5971H430H1696H7650H1H85H3327H3290 14"But you are not the only ones with whom I am making this covenant with its curses.H3772H1285H423 15I am making this covenant both with you who stand here today in the presence of the LORD our God, and also with the future generations who are not standing here today.H5975H3426H3117H6440H3068H430H3117 16"You remember how we lived in the land of Egypt and how we traveled through the lands of enemy nations as we left.H3045H3427H776H4714H5674H7130H1471H5674 17You have seen their detestable practices and their idols made of wood, stone, silver, and gold.H7200H8251H1544H6086H68H3701H2091 18I am making this covenant with you so that no one among you—no man, woman, clan, or tribe—will turn away from the LORD our God to worship these gods of other nations, and so that no root among you bears bitter and poisonous fruit.H3426H376H802H4940H7626H3824H6437H3117H3068H430H3212H5647H430H1471H3426H8328H6509H7219H3939 19"Those who hear the warnings of this curse should not congratulate themselves, thinking, 'I am safe, even though I am following the desires of my own stubborn heart.' This would lead to utter ruin!H8085H1697H423H1288H3824H559H7965H3588H3212H8307H3820H5595H7302H6771 20The LORD will never pardon such people. Instead his anger and jealousy will burn against them. All the curses written in this book will come down on them, and the LORD will erase their names from under heaven.H3068H14H5545H639H3068H7068H6225H376H423H3789H5612H7257H3068H4229H8034H8064 21The LORD will separate them from all the tribes of Israel, to pour out on them all the curses of the covenant recorded in this Book of Instruction.H3068H914H7451H7626H3478H423H1285H3789H5612H8451 22"Then the generations to come, both your own descendants and the foreigners who come from distant lands, will see the devastation of the land and the diseases the LORD inflicts on it.H1755H314H1121H6965H310H5237H935H7350H776H559H7200H4347H776H8463H3068H2470 23They will exclaim, 'The whole land is devastated by sulfur and salt. It is a wasteland with nothing planted and nothing growing, not even a blade of grass. It is like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD destroyed in his intense anger.'H776H1614H4417H8316H2232H6779H6212H5927H4114H5467H6017H126H6636H3068H2015H639H2534 24"And all the surrounding nations will ask, 'Why has the LORD done this to this land? Why was he so angry?'H1471H559H3068H6213H776H2750H1419H639 25"And the answer will be, 'This happened because the people of the land abandoned the covenant that the LORD, the God of their ancestors, made with them when he brought them out of the land of Egypt.H559H5800H1285H3068H430H1H3772H3318H776H4714 26Instead, they turned away to serve and worship gods they had not known before, gods that were not from the LORD.H3212H5647H312H430H7812H430H3045H2505 27That is why the LORD's anger has burned against this land, bringing down on it every curse recorded in this book.H639H3068H2734H776H935H7045H3789H5612 28In great anger and fury the LORD uprooted his people from their land and banished them to another land, where they still live today!'H3068H5428H127H639H2534H1419H7110H7993H312H776H3117 29"The LORD our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions.H5641H3068H430H1540H1121H5704H5769H6213H1697H8451
