Always rejoice, Unceasingly pray, In everything give thanks.
Jehovah your God, Who goes before you, He will fight for you according to all that He did for you in Egypt before your eyes,
From Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and from the city which is in the valley, even to Gilead, there was not a town too high for us; Jehovah our God delivered them all up before us.
O Lord Jehovah, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your mighty hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do things like what You have done and things like Your mighty deeds?
For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as Jehovah our God is whenever we call upon Him?
Neither shall you covet your neighbor's wife, nor shall you desire your neighbor's house, his field, or his male servant or his female servant, his ox or his donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
And you shall love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Know therefore that it is Jehovah your God who is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and loving-kindness to the thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments,
Therefore keep the commandments of Jehovah your God, walking in His way and fearing Him.
Know therefore that it is not because of your righteousness that Jehovah your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.
Circumcise then the foreskin of your heart, and do not be stiff-necked any longer;
Be careful lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and bow down to them,
You shall not do according to all that we do here today, each man doing all that is right in his own eyes;
You shall follow Jehovah your God; and you shall fear Him, keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and hold fast to Him.
You must give a tenth of all the produce of your seed, which the field brings forth, year by year.
For Jehovah your God will bless you as He has promised you. And you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.
You shall not distort justice; you shall not respect persons, nor shall you take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.
And all the people will hear and will fear, and they will not act presumptuously anymore.
A Prophet will Jehovah your God raise up for you from your midst, from among your brothers, like me; you shall listen to Him.
The two men who have the dispute shall stand before Jehovah, before the priests and the judges who are serving in those days.
When you draw near to a city to fight against it, you shall proclaim peace to it.
But he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the despised woman, giving him a double portion of all that he has, for he is the firstfruits of his vigor; the right of the firstborn is his.
A woman shall not put on a man’s clothing, nor shall a man wear a woman's garment; for everyone who does these things is an abomination to Jehovah your God.
What proceeds out of your lips you shall keep and do, as you have vowed to Jehovah your God voluntarily, which you have promised with your mouth.
One shall not take a handmill or an upper millstone as a pledge, for he takes the livelihood as a pledge.
You shall not have in your bag different weights, one heavy and one light.
And it is Jehovah who has today declared you to be a people for His personal treasure, even as He promised you; and that you will keep all His commandments;
With unhewn stones you shall build the altar of Jehovah your God. Then you shall offer up burnt offerings upon it to Jehovah your God;
And Jehovah will make you the head and not the tail, and you will tend only upward, and you will not tend downward, if you will listen to the commandments of Jehovah your God, which I am commanding you today to keep and to do.
Therefore keep the words of this covenant and do them in order that you may prosper in all that you do.
But the word is very near to you, even in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.
But it is Jehovah who is going before you. He will be with you; He will not fail you nor forsake you. Do not fear, neither be dismayed.
See now that I, I am He, And there is no god with Me. It is I who kill, and I make alive; I wound, and it is I who heal; And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.
Your doorbolts shall be iron and copper; And as your days are, so shall your strength be.
And Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died; his eye was not dim, nor had his freshness left him.
