New Living Translation
32"Listen, O heavens, and I will speak! Hear, O earth, the words that I say!H238H8064H1696H8085H776H561H6310 2Let my teaching fall on you like rain; let my speech settle like dew. Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.H3948H6201H4306H565H5140H2919H8164H1877H7241H6212 3I will proclaim the name of the LORD; how glorious is our God!H7121H8034H3068H3051H1433H430 4He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!H6697H6467H8549H1870H4941H410H530H5766H6662H3477 5"But they have acted corruptly toward him; when they act so perversely, are they really his children? They are a deceitful and twisted generation.H7843H3971H1121H6141H6618H1755 6Is this the way you repay the LORD, you foolish and senseless people? Isn't he your Father who created you? Has he not made you and established you?H1580H3068H5036H5971H2450H1H7069H6213H3559 7Remember the days of long ago; think about the generations past. Ask your father, and he will inform you. Inquire of your elders, and they will tell you.H2142H3117H5769H995H8141H1755H1755H7592H1H5046H2205H559 8When the Most High assigned lands to the nations, when he divided up the human race, he established the boundaries of the peoples according to the number in his heavenly court.H5945H5157H1471H5157H6504H1121H120H5324H1367H5971H4557H1121H3478 9"For the people of Israel belong to the LORD; Jacob is his special possession.H3068H2506H5971H3290H2256H5159 10He found them in a desert land, in an empty, howling wasteland. He surrounded them and watched over them; he guarded them as he would guard his own eyes.H4672H4057H776H8414H3214H3452H5437H995H5341H380H5869 11Like an eagle that rouses her chicks and hovers over her young, so he spread his wings to take them up and carried them safely on his pinions.H5404H5782H7064H7363H1469H6566H3671H3947H5375H84 12The LORD alone guided them; they followed no foreign gods.H3068H910H5148H5236H410 13He let them ride over the highlands and feast on the crops of the fields. He nourished them with honey from the rock and olive oil from the stony ground.H7392H1116H776H398H8570H7704H3243H1706H5553H8081H2496H6697 14He fed them yogurt from the herd and milk from the flock, together with the fat of lambs. He gave them choice rams from Bashan, and goats, together with the choicest wheat. You drank the finest wine, made from the juice of grapes.H2529H1241H2461H6629H2459H3733H352H1121H1316H6260H2459H3629H2406H8354H2561H1818H6025 15"But Israel soon became fat and unruly; the people grew heavy, plump, and stuffed! Then they abandoned the God who had made them; they made light of the Rock of their salvation.H3484H8080H1163H8080H5666H3780H5203H433H6213H5034H6697H3444 16They stirred up his jealousy by worshiping foreign gods; they provoked his fury with detestable deeds.H7065H2114H8441H3707 17They offered sacrifices to demons, which are not God, to gods they had not known before, to new gods only recently arrived, to gods their ancestors had never feared.H2076H7700H433H430H3045H2319H935H7138H935H1H8175 18You neglected the Rock who had fathered you; you forgot the God who had given you birth.H6697H3205H7876H7911H410H2342 19"The LORD saw this and drew back, provoked to anger by his own sons and daughters.H3068H7200H5006H3708H1121H1323 20He said, 'I will abandon them; then see what becomes of them. For they are a twisted generation, children without integrity.H559H5641H6440H7200H319H8419H1755H1121H529 21They have roused my jealousy by worshiping things that are not God; they have provoked my anger with their useless idols. Now I will rouse their jealousy through people who are not even a people; I will provoke their anger through the foolish Gentiles.H7065H3808H410H3707H1892H7065H5971H3707H5036H1471 22For my anger blazes forth like fire and burns to the depths of the grave. It devours the earth and all its crops and ignites the foundations of the mountains.H784H6919H639H3344H8482H7585H398H776H2981H3857H4144H2022 23I will heap disasters upon them and shoot them down with my arrows.H5595H7451H3615H2671 24I will weaken them with famine, burning fever, and deadly disease. I will send the fangs of wild beasts and poisonous snakes that glide in the dust.H4198H7458H3898H7565H4815H6986H7971H8127H929H2534H2119H6083 25Outside, the sword will bring death, and inside, terror will strike both young men and young women, both infants and the aged.H2719H2351H367H2315H7921H970H1330H3243H376H7872 26I would have annihilated them, wiping out even the memory of them.H559H6284H2143H7673H582 27But I feared the taunt of Israel's enemy, who might misunderstand and say, "Our own power has triumphed! The LORD had nothing to do with this!"'H3884H1481H3708H341H6862H5234H559H3027H7311H3068H6466 28"But Israel is a senseless nation; the people are foolish, without understanding.H1471H6H6098H8394 29Oh, that they were wise and could understand this! Oh, that they might know their fate!H3863H2449H7919H995H319 30How could one person chase a thousand of them, and two people put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?H259H7291H505H8147H7233H505H5127H3808H6697H4376H3588H3068H5462 31But the rock of our enemies is not like our Rock, as even they recognize.H6697H6697H341H6414 32Their vine grows from the vine of Sodom, from the vineyards of Gomorrah. Their grapes are poison, and their clusters are bitter.H1612H1612H5467H7709H6017H6025H6025H7219H811H4846 33Their wine is the venom of serpents, the deadly poison of cobras.H3196H2534H8577H393H7219H6620 34"The LORD says, 'Am I not storing up these things, sealing them away in my treasury?H3647H2856H214 35I will take revenge; I will pay them back. In due time their feet will slip. Their day of disaster will arrive, and their destiny will overtake them.'H5359H8005H7272H4131H6256H3117H343H7138H6264H2363 36"Indeed, the LORD will give justice to his people, and he will change his mind about his servants, when he sees their strength is gone and no one is left, slave or free.H3068H1777H5971H5162H5650H7200H3027H235H657H6113H5800 37Then he will ask, 'Where are their gods, the rocks they fled to for refuge?H559H430H6697H2620 38Where now are those gods, who ate the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their offerings? Let those gods arise and help you! Let them provide you with shelter!H398H2459H2077H8354H3196H5257H6965H5826H5643 39Look now; I myself am he! There is no other god but me! I am the one who kills and gives life; I am the one who wounds and heals; no one can be rescued from my powerful hand!H7200H430H4191H2421H4272H7495H5337H3027 40Now I raise my hand to heaven and declare, "As surely as I live,H5375H3027H8064H559H2416H5769 41when I sharpen my flashing sword and begin to carry out justice, I will take revenge on my enemies and repay those who reject me.H8150H1300H2719H3027H270H4941H7725H5359H6862H7999H8130 42I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword will devour flesh - the blood of the slaughtered and the captives, and the heads of the enemy leaders."'H2671H7937H1818H2719H398H1320H1818H2491H7633H7218H6546H341 43"Rejoice with him, you heavens, and let all of God's angels worship him. Rejoice with his people, you nations, and let all the angels be strengthened in him. For he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take revenge against his enemies. He will repay those who hate him and cleanse the land for his people."H7442H1471H5971H5358H1818H5650H7725H5359H6862H3722H127H5971 44So Moses came with Joshua son of Nun and recited all the words of this song to the people.H4872H935H1696H1697H7892H241H5971H1954H1121H5126 45When Moses had finished reciting all these words to the people of Israel,H4872H3615H1696H1697H3478 46he added: "Take to heart all the words of warning I have given you today. Pass them on as a command to your children so they will obey every word of these instructions.H559H7760H3824H1697H5749H3117H6680H1121H8104H6213H1697H8451 47These instructions are not empty words - they are your life! By obeying them you will enjoy a long life in the land you will occupy when you cross the Jordan River."H7386H1697H2416H1697H748H3117H127H5674H3383H3423

Moses’ Death Foretold

48That same day the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H6106H3117H559 49"Go to Moab, to the mountains east of the river, and climb Mount Nebo, which is across from Jericho. Look out across the land of Canaan, the land I am giving to the people of Israel as their own special possession.H5927H2022H5682H2022H5015H776H4124H6440H3405H7200H776H3667H5414H1121H3478H272 50Then you will die there on the mountain. You will join your ancestors, just as Aaron, your brother, died on Mount Hor and joined his ancestors.H4191H2022H5927H622H5971H175H251H4191H2022H2023H622H5971 51For both of you betrayed me with the Israelites at the waters of Meribah at Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin. You failed to demonstrate my holiness to the people of Israel there.H4603H8432H1121H3478H4325H4808H6946H4057H6790H6942H8432H1121H3478 52So you will see the land from a distance, but you may not enter the land I am giving to the people of Israel."H7200H776H935H776H5414H1121H3478
