Deuteronomy 29 ©
2 Moses exhorteth the people to obedience by the memory of the works they had seen. 10 They are all presented before the Lord to enter into covenant with him, and warned of the danger of flattering themselves in wickedness. Revealed things alone belong to men.
¶And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye bhave seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;
And when ye came unto this place, gSihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them:
Your little ones, your wives, and thy lstranger that is in thy camp, from mthe *hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:
That thou nshouldest 1enter into covenant with the LORD thy God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this day:
That he may oestablish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and pas he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
Neither with you only qdo I make this covenant and this oath;
And ye have seen their abominations, and their 2idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)
Lest tthere should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth 3gall and u*wormwood;
And it come to pass, when he vheareth the words of this curse, that he wbless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk xin the 4imagination of mine heart, to yadd 5drunkenness to thirst:
The LORD will znot spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and ahis jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the bcurses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD cshall blot out his name from under heaven.
So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses 7which the LORD hath laid upon it;
And that the whole land thereof is e*brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, flike the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:
For ithey went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and 8whom he had not 9given unto them:
And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the jcurses that are written in this book:
And the LORD krooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.
The lsecret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
