Deuteronomy 29


29:1 These [are] the words of the covenant which the LORD
 commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land
 of Moab, besides the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.
29:2 And Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, Ye have
 seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of
 Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land;
29:3 The great temptations which thy eyes have seen, the signs,
 and those great miracles:
29:4 Yet the LORD hath not given you a heart to perceive, and
 eyes to see, and ears to hear, to this day.
29:5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your
 clothes have not become old upon you, and thy shoe hath not
 become old upon thy foot.
29:6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drank wine or
 strong drink: that ye might know that I [am] the LORD your God.
29:7 And when ye came to this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon,
 and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us to battle, and
 we smote them:
29:8 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance to
 the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half-tribe of
 Manasseh.
29:9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them,
 that ye may prosper in all that ye do.
29:10 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God;
 your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers,
 [with] all the men of Israel,
29:11 Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that [is]
 in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood to the drawer of thy
 water:
29:12 That thou shouldst enter into covenant with the LORD thy
 God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee
 this day:
29:13 That he may establish thee to-day for a people to himself,
 and [that] he may be to thee a God, as he hath said to thee,
 and as he hath sworn to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and
 to Jacob.
29:14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this
 oath;
29:15 But with [him] that standeth here with us this day before
 the LORD our God, and also with [him] that [is] not here with
 us this day:
29:16 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and
 how we came through the nations which ye passed by;
29:17 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood
 and stone, silver and gold, which [were] among them:)
29:18 Lest there 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 gall and wormwood;
29:19 And it should come to pass, when he heareth the words of
 this curse, that he should bless himself in his heart, saying,
 I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of my
 heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:
29:20 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the
 LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the
 curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and
 the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.
29:21 And the LORD shall separate him to evil out of all the
 tribes of Israel according to all the curses of the covenant
 that are written in this book of the law:
29:22 So that the generation to come of your children that shall
 arise after you, and the stranger that shall come from a
 distant land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that
 land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it;
29:23 [And that] the whole land of it is brimstone, and salt,
 [and] burning, [that] it is not sown, nor doth it bear, nor
 doth any grass grow in it, like the overthrow of Sodom, and
 Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his
 anger and in his wrath:
29:24 Even all the nations shall say, Why hath the LORD done
 thus to this land? what [meaneth] the heat of this great anger?
29:25 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the
 covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with
 them when he brought them forth from the land of Egypt:
29:26 For they went and served other gods, and worshiped them,
 gods which they knew not, and which he had not given to them:
29:27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land,
 to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:
29:28 And the LORD rooted 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.
29:29 The secret [things belong] to the LORD our God: but those
 [things which are] revealed [belong] to us, and to our children
 for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
