Deuteronomy 29
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1These are words of the covenant that LORD JEHOVAH commanded Moshe to covenant with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, apart from the covenant that He covenanted with them in Khoreeb.

2And Moshe called all Israel and said to them: “You have seen everything that LORD JEHOVAH did in your sight in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh and to all his Servants and to all his people and to all his land; 3Great trials that your eyes have seen, these signs and wonders that you saw: 4And LORD JEHOVAH did not give you a heart to know and eyes to see and ears to hear until today. 5And I have led you forty years in the wilderness; your garments are not worn out by you and your shoes are not worn out from your feet. 6And you did not eat bread and you did not drink wine and strong drink, so that you will know that I AM LORD JEHOVAH your God. 7And I have brought you to this region, and Sikhon the King of Kheshbon and Og the King of Mathnin went out to meet us for battle and we put them to the sword, 8And we took their land and we gave it as an inheritance to Rubil and to Gad and to the half tribe of Menasheh. 9Keep the commandments of this Law and do them, that you will be offering the best of everything that you are doing.

10You are standing today before LORD JEHOVAH your God, all of you, the Princes of your tribes and your Elders and your Scribes all of the men of Israel: 11And your little ones and your wives and the settlers who are within your camp, the one who gathers your wood and unto the one drawing your water: 12That you will not pass over the covenant of LORD JEHOVAH your God and over the oath of LORD JEHOVAH your God which He covenanted with you today: 13Because He shall establish you a people for himself today, and he shall be God to you, as He said to you and as He swore to your fathers, to Abraham and to Isaac and to Yaquuv.

14It is not with you only that I establish this covenant or this oath; 15But with everyone who is here and our nation standing today before LORD JEHOVAH our God and with everyone who is not with us here today: 16Because you know that we passed through in the land of Egypt and we passed through among the nations which you passed through; 17And you have seen their abominations and their idols of wood and of stone and of overlaid silver and gold; 18Lest there is in you a man or a woman or a family or a tribe whose heart turns away today from LORD JEHOVAH our God to go to work for the gods of those nations, lest there is in you a root that causes bitterness and wormwood to spring up: 19And when he hears the word of this oath, he will reason in his heart and will say, “I shall have peace; in the desire of my heart I shall go that I may add drunkenness to thirst”; 20LORD JEHOVAH will not desire to forgive him, but then the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH and his zeal will prevail against that man, and every curse that is written in this book shall come upon him and LORD JEHOVAH shall blot out his name from under Heaven. 21And LORD JEHOVAH shall separate him for evil from all of the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in the book of this Law:

22And the next generation will say, “Your children who will arise after you, and the strangers to come from a distant land, and they will see the plagues of this land and its diseases that has brought LORD JEHOVAH upon it; 23Brimstone and salt burning all the land, it will not be sown and will not grow and no grass will come up in it, but it will be as Sadom and like Amora and like Adma and like Tseboim, for LORD JEHOVAH overturned them in his wrath and in his anger: 24And all of the nations will say: ‘Why has LORD JEHOVAH done so to this land and why was this his great wrath enraged?.’ 25And they will say, ‘Because they have forsaken the covenant of LORD JEHOVAH, God of their fathers who covenanted with them when he brought them out from the land of Egypt: 26And they went and they worked for other gods and worshipped them, gods that they did not know and were not assigned to them: 27And the wrath of LORD JEHOVAH was provoked against this land that he would bring all the curses that are written in this book upon it: 28And LORD JEHOVAH shall uproot them from their land in passion and in anger and in great rage and will send them to another land as today.

29The secrets are of LORD JEHOVAH our God, and the revelations are ours and our children’s to eternity, that we may keep and perform all of the words of this Law.’”
