'Ye do not make to yourselves idols; and graven image or
standing image ye do not set up to yourselves; and a stone of imagery ye do not
put in your land, to bow yourselves to it; for I am Jehovah your God.
'My sabbaths ye do keep, and My sanctuary ye do reverence; I
'If in My statutes ye walk, and My commands ye keep, and
have done them,
then I have given your rains in their season, and the land
hath given her produce, and the tree of the field doth give its fruit;
and reached to you hath the threshing, the gathering, and
the gathering doth reach the sowing-time; and ye have eaten your bread
to satiety, and have dwelt confidently in your land.
'And I have given peace in the land, and ye have lain down,
and there is none causing trembling; and I have caused evil beasts to cease out
of the land, and the sword doth not pass over into your land.
'And ye have pursued your enemies, and they have fallen
before you by the sword;
and five of you have pursued a hundred, and a hundred of you
do pursue a myriad; and your enemies have fallen before you by the sword.
'And I have turned unto you, and have made you fruitful, and
have multiplied you, and have established My covenant with you;
and ye have eaten old store, and the old because of
the new ye bring out.
'And I have given My tabernacle in your midst, and My soul
doth not loathe you;
and I have walked habitually in your midst, and have become
your God, and ye -- ye are become My people;
I am Jehovah your God, who have brought you out of
the land of the Egyptians, from being their servants; and I break the bars of
your yoke, and cause you to go erect.
'And if ye do not hearken to Me, and do not all these
and if at My statutes ye kick, and if My judgments your soul
loathe, so as not to do all My commands -- to your breaking My covenant --
I also do this to you, and I have appointed over you
trouble, the consumption, and the burning fever, consuming eyes, and causing
pain of soul; and your seed in vain ye have sowed, and your enemies have eaten
and I have set My face against you, and ye have been smitten
before your enemies; and those hating you have ruled over you, and ye have
fled, and there is none pursuing you.
'And if unto these ye hearken not to Me, -- then I have
added to chastise you seven times for your sins;
and I have broken the pride of your strength, and have made
your heavens as iron, and your earth as brass;
and consumed hath been your strength in vain, and your land
doth not give her produce, and the tree of the land doth not give its fruit.
'And if ye walk with Me in opposition, and are not
willing to hearken to Me, then I have added to you a plague seven times,
according to your sins,
and sent against you the beast of the field, and it hath
bereaved you; and I have cut off your cattle, and have made you few, and your
ways have been desolate.
'And if by these ye are not instructed by Me, and have
walked with Me in opposition,
then I have walked -- I also -- with you in opposition, and
have smitten you, even I, seven times for your sins;
and I have brought in on you a sword, executing the
vengeance of a covenant; and ye have been gathered unto your cities, and I have
sent pestilence into your midst, and ye have been given into the hand of an
'In My breaking to you the staff of bread, then ten women
have baked your bread in one oven, and have given back your bread by weight;
and ye have eaten, and are not satisfied.
'And if for this ye hearken not to Me, and have walked with
Me in opposition,
then I have walked with you in the fury of opposition, and
have chastised you, even I, seven times for your sins.
'And ye have eaten the flesh of your sons; even flesh of
your daughters ye do eat.
And I have destroyed your high places, and cut down your
images, and have put your carcases on the carcases of your idols, and My soul
hath loathed you;
and I have made your cities a waste, and have made desolate
your sanctuaries, and I smell not at your sweet fragrances;
and I have made desolate the land, and your enemies, who are
dwelling in it, have been astonished at it.
And you I scatter among nations, and have drawn out after
you a sword, and your land hath been a desolation, and your cities are a waste.
'Then doth the land enjoy its sabbaths -- all the days of
the desolation, and ye in the land of your enemies -- then doth the land rest,
and hath enjoyed its sabbaths;
all the days of the desolation it resteth that which it hath
not rested in your sabbaths in your dwelling on it.
'And those who are left of you -- I have also brought a
faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a
leaf driven away hath pursued them, and they have fled -- flight from a sword
-- and they have fallen, and there is none pursuing.
And they have stumbled one on another, as from the face of a
sword, and there is none pursuing, and ye have no standing before your enemies,
and ye have perished among the nations, and the land of your
enemies hath consumed you.
'And those who are left of you -- they consume away in their
iniquity, in the lands of your enemies; and also in the iniquities of their
fathers, with them they consume away.
'And -- they have confessed their iniquity, and the iniquity
of their fathers, in their trespass which they have trespassed against Me, and
also, that they have walked with Me, in opposition,
also I walk to them in opposition, and have brought them
into the land of their enemies -- or then their uncircumcised heart is humbled,
and then they accept the punishment of their iniquity, --
then I have remembered My covenant with Jacob, and
also My covenant with Isaac, and also My covenant with Abraham I
remember, and the land I remember.
'And -- the land is left of them, and doth enjoy its
sabbaths, in the desolation without them, and they accept the punishment of
their iniquity, because, even because, against My judgments they have kicked,
and My statutes hath their soul loathed,
and also even this, in their being in the land of their
enemies, I have not rejected them, nor have I loathed them, to consume them, to
break My covenant with them; for I am Jehovah their God; --
then I have remembered for them the covenant of the ancestors,
whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations to
become their God; I am Jehovah.'
These are the statutes, and the judgments, and the
laws, which Jehovah hath given between Him and the sons of Israel, in mount
Sinai, by the hand of Moses.
