Deuteronomy 9


1  Hear,8085 O Israel:3478 Thou859 art to pass over5674 853 Jordan3383 this day,3117 to go in935 to possess3423 nations1471 greater1419 and mightier6099 than4480 thyself, cities5892 great1419 and fenced up1219 to heaven,8064

2  A people5971 great1419 and tall,7311 the children1121 of the Anakims,6062 whom834 thou859 knowest,3045 and of whom thou859 hast heard8085 say, Who4310 can stand3320 before6440 the children1121 of Anak!6061

3  Understand3045 therefore this day,3117 that3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 is he1931 which goeth over5674 before6440 thee; as a consuming398 fire784 he1931 shall destroy8045 them, and he1931 shall bring them down3665 before thy face:6440 so shalt thou drive them out,3423 and destroy6 them quickly,4118 as834 the LORD3068 hath said1696 unto thee.

4  Speak559 not408 thou in thine heart,3824 after that the LORD3068 thy God430 hath cast them out1920 853 from before4480 6440 thee, saying,559 For my righteousness6666 the LORD3068 hath brought me in935 to possess3423 853 this2063 land:776 but for the wickedness7564 of these428 nations1471 the LORD3068 doth drive them out3423 from before4480 6440 thee.

5  Not3808 for thy righteousness,6666 or for the uprightness3476 of thine heart,3824 dost thou859 go935 to possess3423 853 their land:776 but3588 for the wickedness7564 of these428 nations1471 the LORD3068 thy God430 doth drive them out3423 from before4480 6440 thee, and that4616 he may perform6965 853 the word1697 which834 the LORD3068 swore7650 unto thy fathers,1 Abraham,85 Isaac,3327 and Jacob.3290

6  Understand3045 therefore, that3588 the LORD3068 thy God430 giveth5414 thee not3808 853 this2063 good2896 land776 to possess3423 it for thy righteousness;6666 for3588 thou859 art a stiffnecked7186 6203 people.5971

7  Remember,2142 and forget7911 not,408 853 how834 thou provokedst7107 853 the LORD3068 thy God430 to wrath in the wilderness:4057 from4480 the day3117 that834 thou didst depart3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 until5704 ye came935 unto5704 this2088 place,4725 ye have been1961 rebellious4784 against5973 the LORD.3068

8  Also in Horeb2722 ye provoked7107 853 the LORD3068 to wrath, so that the LORD3068 was angry599 with you to have destroyed8045 you.

9  When I was gone up5927 into the mount2022 to receive3947 the tables3871 of stone,68 even the tables3871 of the covenant1285 which834 the LORD3068 made3772 with5973 you, then I abode3427 in the mount2022 forty705 days3117 and forty705 nights,3915 I neither3808 did eat398 bread3899 nor3808 drink8354 water:4325

10  And the LORD3068 delivered5414 unto413 me 853 two8147 tables3871 of stone68 written3789 with the finger676 of God;430 and on5921 them was written according to all3605 the words,1697 which834 the LORD3068 spoke1696 with5973 you in the mount2022 out of the midst4480 8432 of the fire784 in the day3117 of the assembly.6951

11  And it came to pass1961 at the end4480 7093 of forty705 days3117 and forty705 nights,3915 that the LORD3068 gave5414 413 me 853 the two8147 tables3871 of stone,68 even the tables3871 of the covenant.1285

12  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Arise,6965 get thee down3381 quickly4118 from hence;4480 2088 for3588 thy people5971 which834 thou hast brought forth3318 out of Egypt4480 4714 have corrupted7843 themselves; they are quickly4118 turned aside5493 out of4480 the way1870 which834 I commanded6680 them; they have made6213 them a molten image.4541

13  Furthermore the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 me, saying,559 I have seen7200 853 this2088 people,5971 and, behold,2009 it1931 is a stiffnecked7186 6203 people:5971

14  Let me alone,7503 4480 that I may destroy8045 them, and blot out4229 853 their name8034 from under4480 8478 heaven:8064 and I will make6213 of thee a nation1471 mightier6099 and greater7227 than4480 they.

15  So I turned6437 and came down3381 from4480 the mount,2022 and the mount2022 burned1197 with fire:784 and the two8147 tables3871 of the covenant1285 were in5921 my two8147 hands.3027

16  And I looked,7200 and, behold,2009 ye had sinned2398 against the LORD3068 your God,430 and had made6213 you a molten4541 calf:5695 ye had turned aside5493 quickly4118 out of4480 the way1870 which834 the LORD3068 had commanded6680 you.

17  And I took8610 the two8147 tables,3871 and cast7993 them out of4480 5921 my two8147 hands,3027 and broke7665 them before your eyes.5869

18  And I fell down5307 before6440 the LORD,3068 as at the first,7223 forty705 days3117 and forty705 nights:3915 I did neither3808 eat398 bread,3899 nor3808 drink8354 water,4325 because of5921 all3605 your sins2403 which834 ye sinned,2398 in doing6213 wickedly7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 to provoke him to anger.3707

19  For3588 I was afraid3025 of4480 6440 the anger639 and hot displeasure,2534 wherewith834 the LORD3068 was wroth7107 against5921 you to destroy8045 you. But the LORD3068 hearkened8085 unto413 me at that1931 time6471 also.1571

20  And the LORD3068 was very angry599 3966 with Aaron175 to have destroyed8045 him: and I prayed6419 for1157 Aaron175 also1571 the same1931 time.6256

21  And I took3947 your sin,2403 853 the calf5695 which834 ye had made,6213 and burnt8313 it with fire,784 and stamped3807 it, and ground2912 it very small,3190 even until5704 it834 was as small1854 as dust:6083 and I cast7993 853 the dust6083 thereof into413 the brook5158 that descended3381 out of4480 the mount.2022

22  And at Taberah,8404 and at Massah,4532 and at Kibroth-hattaavah,6914 ye provoked7107 853 the LORD3068 to wrath.

23  Likewise when the LORD3068 sent7971 you from Kadesh-barnea,4480 6947 saying,559 Go up5927 and possess3423 853 the land776 which834 I have given5414 you; then ye rebelled against4784 853 the commandment6310 of the LORD3068 your God,430 and ye believed539 him not,3808 nor3808 hearkened8085 to his voice.6963

24  Ye have been1961 rebellious4784 against5973 the LORD3068 from the day4480 3117 that I knew3045 you.

25  Thus I fell down5307 before6440 the LORD3068 853 forty705 days3117 and forty705 nights,3915 as834 I fell down5307 at the first; because3588 the LORD3068 had said559 he would destroy8045 you.

26  I prayed6419 therefore unto413 the LORD,3068 and said,559 O Lord136 GOD,3069 destroy7843 not408 thy people5971 and thine inheritance,5159 which834 thou hast redeemed6299 through thy greatness,1433 which834 thou hast brought forth3318 out of Egypt4480 4714 with a mighty2389 hand.3027

27  Remember2142 thy servants,5650 Abraham,85 Isaac,3327 and Jacob;3290 look6437 not408 unto413 the stubbornness7190 of this2088 people,5971 nor to413 their wickedness,7562 nor to413 their sin:2403

28  Lest6435 the land776 whence834 4480 8034 thou broughtest us out3318 say,559 Because the LORD3068 was not able4480 1097 3201 to bring935 them into413 the land776 which834 he promised1696 them, and because he hated4480 8135 them, he hath brought them out3318 to slay4191 them in the wilderness.4057

29  Yet they1992 are thy people5971 and thine inheritance,5159 which834 thou broughtest out3318 by thy mighty1419 power3581 and by thy stretched out5186 arm.2220


1 ἄκουε Ισραηλ σὺ διαβαίνεις σήμερον τὸν Ιορδάνην εἰσελθεῖν κληρονομῆσαι ἔθνη μεγάλα καὶ ἰσχυρότερα μᾶλλον ἢ ὑμεῖς πόλεις μεγάλας καὶ τειχήρεις ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ

2 λαὸν μέγαν καὶ πολὺν καὶ εὐμήκη υἱοὺς Ενακ οὓς σὺ οἶσθα καὶ σὺ ἀκήκοας τίς ἀντιστήσεται κατὰ πρόσωπον υἱῶν Ενακ

3 καὶ γνώσῃ σήμερον ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεός σου οὗτος προπορεύεται πρὸ προσώπου σου πῦρ καταναλίσκον ἐστίν οὗτος ἐξολεθρεύσει αὐτούς καὶ οὗτος ἀποστρέψει αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ ἀπολεῖς αὐτούς καθάπερ εἶπέν σοι κύριος

4 μὴ εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου ἐν τῷ ἐξαναλῶσαι κύριον τὸν θεόν σου τὰ ἔθνη ταῦτα ἀπὸ προσώπου σου λέγων διὰ τὰς δικαιοσύνας μου εἰσήγαγέν με κύριος κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην ἀλλὰ διὰ τὴν ἀσέβειαν τῶν ἐθνῶν τούτων κύριος ἐξολεθρεύσει αὐτοὺς πρὸ προσώπου σου

5 οὐχὶ διὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου οὐδὲ διὰ τὴν ὁσιότητα τῆς καρδίας σου σὺ εἰσπορεύῃ κληρονομῆσαι τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν ἀλλὰ διὰ τὴν ἀσέβειαν τῶν ἐθνῶν τούτων κύριος ἐξολεθρεύσει αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ ἵνα στήσῃ τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ ἣν ὤμοσεν τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν τῷ Αβρααμ καὶ τῷ Ισαακ καὶ τῷ Ιακωβ

6 καὶ γνώσῃ σήμερον ὅτι οὐχὶ διὰ τὰς δικαιοσύνας σου κύριος ὁ θεός σου δίδωσίν σοι τὴν γῆν τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην κληρονομῆσαι ὅτι λαὸς σκληροτράχηλος εἶ

7 μνήσθητι μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ ὅσα παρώξυνας κύριον τὸν θεόν σου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἐξήλθετε ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἕως ἤλθετε εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον ἀπειθοῦντες διετελεῖτε τὰ πρὸς κύριον

8 καὶ ἐν Χωρηβ παρωξύνατε κύριον καὶ ἐθυμώθη κύριος ἐφ᾽ ὑμῖν ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς

9 ἀναβαίνοντός μου εἰς τὸ ὄρος λαβεῖν τὰς πλάκας τὰς λιθίνας πλάκας διαθήκης ἃς διέθετο κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ κατεγινόμην ἐν τῷ ὄρει τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας ἄρτον οὐκ ἔφαγον καὶ ὕδωρ οὐκ ἔπιον

10 καὶ ἔδωκεν κύριος ἐμοὶ τὰς δύο πλάκας τὰς λιθίνας γεγραμμένας ἐν τῷ δακτύλῳ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπ᾽ αὐταῖς ἐγέγραπτο πάντες οἱ λόγοι οὓς ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἡμέρᾳ ἐκκλησίας

11 καὶ ἐγένετο διὰ τεσσαράκοντα ἡμερῶν καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νυκτῶν ἔδωκεν κύριος ἐμοὶ τὰς δύο πλάκας τὰς λιθίνας πλάκας διαθήκης

12 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με ἀνάστηθι κατάβηθι τὸ τάχος ἐντεῦθεν ὅτι ἠνόμησεν ὁ λαός σου οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου παρέβησαν ταχὺ ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ ἧς ἐνετείλω αὐτοῖς ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς χώνευμα

13 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με λελάληκα πρὸς σὲ ἅπαξ καὶ δὶς λέγων ἑώρακα τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον καὶ ἰδοὺ λαὸς σκληροτράχηλός ἐστιν

14 ἔασόν με ἐξολεθρεῦσαι αὐτούς καὶ ἐξαλείψω τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῶν ὑποκάτωθεν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ποιήσω σὲ εἰς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ ἰσχυρὸν καὶ πολὺ μᾶλλον ἢ τοῦτο

15 καὶ ἐπιστρέψας κατέβην ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους καὶ τὸ ὄρος ἐκαίετο πυρί καὶ αἱ δύο πλάκες ἐπὶ ταῖς δυσὶ χερσίν μου

16 καὶ ἰδὼν ὅτι ἡμάρτετε ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐποιήσατε ὑμῖν ἑαυτοῖς χωνευτὸν καὶ παρέβητε ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ ἧς ἐνετείλατο ὑμῖν κύριος

17 καὶ ἐπιλαβόμενος τῶν δύο πλακῶν ἔρριψα αὐτὰς ἀπὸ τῶν δύο χειρῶν μου καὶ συνέτριψα ἐναντίον ὑμῶν

18 καὶ ἐδεήθην ἐναντίον κυρίου δεύτερον καθάπερ καὶ τὸ πρότερον τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας ἄρτον οὐκ ἔφαγον καὶ ὕδωρ οὐκ ἔπιον περὶ πασῶν τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ὑμῶν ὧν ἡμάρτετε ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν παροξῦναι αὐτόν

19 καὶ ἔκφοβός εἰμι διὰ τὴν ὀργὴν καὶ τὸν θυμόν ὅτι παρωξύνθη κύριος ἐφ᾽ ὑμῖν ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς καὶ εἰσήκουσεν κύριος ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ τούτῳ

20 καὶ ἐπὶ Ααρων ἐθυμώθη κύριος σφόδρα ἐξολεθρεῦσαι αὐτόν καὶ ηὐξάμην καὶ περὶ Ααρων ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ

21 καὶ τὴν ἁμαρτίαν ὑμῶν ἣν ἐποιήσατε τὸν μόσχον ἔλαβον αὐτὸν καὶ κατέκαυσα αὐτὸν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ συνέκοψα αὐτὸν καταλέσας σφόδρα ἕως οὗ ἐγένετο λεπτόν καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡσεὶ κονιορτός καὶ ἔρριψα τὸν κονιορτὸν εἰς τὸν χειμάρρουν τὸν καταβαίνοντα ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους

22 καὶ ἐν τῷ Ἐμπυρισμῷ καὶ ἐν τῷ Πειρασμῷ καὶ ἐν τοῖς Μνήμασιν τῆς ἐπιθυμίας παροξύνοντες ἦτε κύριον τὸν θεὸν ὑμῶν

23 καὶ ὅτε ἐξαπέστειλεν κύριος ὑμᾶς ἐκ Καδης Βαρνη λέγων ἀνάβητε καὶ κληρονομήσατε τὴν γῆν ἣν δίδωμι ὑμῖν καὶ ἠπειθήσατε τῷ ῥήματι κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῷ καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς αὐτοῦ

24 ἀπειθοῦντες ἦτε τὰ πρὸς κύριον ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἐγνώσθη ὑμῖν

25 καὶ ἐδεήθην ἐναντίον κυρίου τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας καὶ τεσσαράκοντα νύκτας ὅσας ἐδεήθην εἶπεν γὰρ κύριος ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ὑμᾶς

26 καὶ εὐξάμην πρὸς τὸν θεὸν καὶ εἶπα κύριε κύριε βασιλεῦ τῶν θεῶν μὴ ἐξολεθρεύσῃς τὸν λαόν σου καὶ τὴν μερίδα σου ἣν ἐλυτρώσω ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι σου τῇ μεγάλῃ οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι σου τῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν τῇ χειρί σου τῇ κραταιᾷ καὶ ἐν τῷ βραχίονί σου τῷ ὑψηλῷ

27 μνήσθητι Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ιακωβ τῶν θεραπόντων σου οἷς ὤμοσας κατὰ σεαυτοῦ μὴ ἐπιβλέψῃς ἐπὶ τὴν σκληρότητα τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου καὶ τὰ ἀσεβήματα καὶ τὰ ἁμαρτήματα αὐτῶν

28 μὴ εἴπωσιν οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν γῆν ὅθεν ἐξήγαγες ἡμᾶς ἐκεῖθεν λέγοντες παρὰ τὸ μὴ δύνασθαι κύριον εἰσαγαγεῖν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς καὶ παρὰ τὸ μισῆσαι αὐτοὺς ἐξήγαγεν αὐτοὺς ἀποκτεῖναι ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

29 καὶ οὗτοι λαός σου καὶ κλῆρός σου οὓς ἐξήγαγες ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν τῇ ἰσχύι σου τῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν τῷ βραχίονί σου τῷ ὑψηλῷ

1 Audi, Israël: tu transgredieris hodie Jordanem, ut possideas nationes maximas et fortiores te, civitates ingentes, et ad cælum usque muratas,

2 populum magnum atque sublimem, filios Enacim, quos ipse vidisti et audisti, quibus nullus potest ex adverso resistere.

3 Scies ergo hodie quod Dominus Deus tuus ipse transibit ante te, ignis devorans atque consumens, qui conterat eos, et deleat atque disperdat ante faciem tuam velociter, sicut locutus est tibi:

4 ne dicas in corde tuo, cum deleverit eos Dominus Deus tuus in conspectu tuo: Propter justitiam meam introduxit me Dominus ut terram hanc possiderem, cum propter impietates suas istæ deletæ sint nationes.

5 Neque enim propter justitias tuas, et æquitatem cordis tui ingredieris, ut possideas terras earum: sed quia illæ egerunt impie, introëunte te deletæ sunt: et ut compleret verbum suum Dominus, quod sub juramento pollicitus est patribus tuis, Abraham, Isaac, et Jacob.

6 Scito ergo quod non propter justitias tuas Dominus Deus tuus dederit tibi terram hanc optimam in possessionem, cum durissimæ cervicis sis populus.

7 Memento, et ne obliviscaris, quomodo ad iracundiam provocaveris Dominum Deum tuum in solitudine. Ex eo die, quo egressus es ex Ægypto usque ad locum istum, semper adversum Dominum contendisti.

8 Nam et in Horeb provocasti eum, et iratus delere te voluit,

9 quando ascendi in montem, ut acciperem tabulas lapideas, tabulas pacti quod pepigit vobiscum Dominus: et perseveravi in monte quadraginta diebus ac noctibus, panem non comedens, et aquam non bibens.

10 Deditque mihi Dominus duas tabulas lapideas scriptas digito Dei, et continentes omnia verba quæ vobis locutus est in monte de medio ignis, quando concio populi congregata est.

11 Cumque transissent quadraginta dies, et totidem noctes, dedit mihi Dominus duas tabulas lapideas, tabulas fœderis,

12 dixitque mihi: Surge, et descende hinc cito: quia populus tuus, quem eduxisti de Ægypto, deseruerunt velociter viam, quam demonstrasti eis, feceruntque sibi conflatile.

13 Rursumque ait Dominus ad me: Cerno quod populus iste duræ cervicis sit:

14 dimitte me ut conteram eum, et deleam nomen ejus de sub cælo, et constituam te super gentem, quæ hac major et fortior sit.

15 Cumque de monte ardente descenderem, et duas tabulas fœderis utraque tenerem manu,

16 vidissemque vos peccasse Domino Deo vestro, et fecisse vobis vitulum conflatilem, ac deseruisse velociter viam ejus, quam vobis ostenderat:

17 projeci tabulas de manibus meis, confregique eas in conspectu vestro.

18 Et procidi ante Dominum sicut prius, quadraginta diebus et noctibus panem non comedens, et aquam non bibens, propter omnia peccata vestra quæ gessistis contra Dominum, et eum ad iracundiam provocastis:

19 timui enim indignationem et iram illius, qua adversum vos concitatus, delere vos voluit. Et exaudivit me Dominus etiam hac vice.

20 Adversum Aaron quoque vehementer iratus, voluit eum conterere, et pro illo similiter deprecatus sum.

21 Peccatum autem vestrum quod feceratis, id est, vitulum, arripiens, igne combussi, et in frusta comminuens, omninoque in pulverem redigens, projeci in torrentem, qui de monte descendit.

22 In incendio quoque, et in tentatione, et in Sepulchris concupiscentiæ provocastis Dominum:

23 et quando misit vos de Cadesbarne, dicens: Ascendite, et possidete terram, quam dedi vobis, et contempsistis imperium Domini Dei vestri, et non credidistis ei, neque vocem ejus audire voluistis:

24 sed semper fuistis rebelles a die qua nosse vos cœpi.

25 Et jacui coram Domino quadraginta diebus ac noctibus, quibus eum suppliciter deprecabar, ne deleret vos ut fuerat comminatus:

26 et orans dixi: Domine Deus, ne disperdas populum tuum, et hæreditatem tuam, quam redemisti in magnitudine tua, quos eduxisti de Ægypto in manu forti.

27 Recordare servorum tuorum Abraham, Isaac, et Jacob: ne aspicias duritiam populi hujus, et impietatem atque peccatum:

28 ne forte dicant habitatores terræ, de qua eduxisti nos: Non poterat Dominus introducere eos in terram, quam pollicitus est eis, et oderat illos: idcirco eduxit, ut interficeret eos in solitudine:

29 qui sunt populus tuus et hæreditas tua, quos eduxisti in fortitudine tua magna, et in brachio tuo extento.
