1 And Moses called all the sons of Israel and said to them, Ye have seen all things that the Lord did in the land of Egypt before you to Pharao and his servants, and all his land; 2 the great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great wonders. 3 Yet the Lord God has not given you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, until this day. 4 And he led you forty years in the wilderness; your garments did not grow old, and your sandals were not worn away off your feet. 5 Ye did not eat bread, ye did not drink wine or strong drink, that ye might know that I [am] the Lord your God. 6 And ye came as far as this place; and there came forth Seon king of Esebon, and Og king of Basan, to meet us in war. 7 And we smote them and took their land, and I gave it for an inheritance to Ruben and Gad, and to the half-tribe of Manasse. 8 And ye shall take heed to do all the words of this covenant, that ye may understand all things that ye shall do. 9 Ye all stand to-day before the Lord your God, the heads of your tribes, and your elders, and your judges, and your officers, every man of Israel, 10 your wives, and your children, and the stranger who is in the midst of your camp, from your hewer of wood even to your drawer of water, 11 that thou shouldest enter into the covenant of the Lord thy God and into his oaths, as many as the Lord thy God appoints thee this day; 12 that he may appoint thee to himself for a people, and he shall be thy God, as he said to thee, and as he sware to thy fathers, Abraam, and Isaac, and Jacob. 13 And I do not appoint to you alone this covenant and this oath; 14 but to those also who are here with you to-day before the Lord your God, and to those who are not here with you to-day. 15 For ye know how we dwelt in the land of Egypt, how we came through the midst of the nations through whom ye came. 16 And ye beheld their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which are among them. 17 Lest there be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart has turned aside from the Lord your God, having gone to serve the gods of these nations; lest there be in you a root springing up with gall and bitterness. 18 And it shall be if one shall hear the words of this curse, and shall flatter himself in his heart, saying, Let good happen to me, for I will walk in the error of my heart, lest the sinner destroy the guiltless with [him]: 19 God shall by no means be willing to pardon him, but then the wrath of the Lord and his jealousy shall flame out against that man; and all the curses of this covenant shall attach themselves to him, which are written in this book, and the Lord shall blot out his name from under heaven. 20 And the Lord shall separate that man for evil of all the children of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in the book of this law. 21 And another generation shall say-- even your sons who shall rise up after you, and the stranger who shall come from a land afar off, and shall see the plagues of that land and their diseases, which the Lord has sent upon it, 22 brimstone and burning salt, (the whole land shall not be sown, neither shall any green thing spring, nor rise upon it, as Sodom and Gomorrha were overthrown, Adama and Seboim, which the Lord overthrew in his wrath and anger:)-- 23 and all the nations shall say, Why has the Lord done thus to this land? what [is] this great fierceness of anger? 24 And [men] shall say, Because they forsook the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, the things which he appointed to their fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt: 25 and they went and served other gods, which they knew not, neither did he assign [them] to them. 26 And the Lord was exceedingly angry with that land to bring upon it according to all the curses which are written in the book of this law. 27 And the Lord removed them from their land in anger, and wrath, and very great indignation, and cast them out into another land as at present. 28 The secret things [belong] to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed [belong] to us and to our children for ever, to do all the words of this law. ΚΑΙ ἐκάλεσε Μωυσῆς πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτούς· ὑμεῖς ἑωράκατε πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησε Κύριος ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν Φαραὼ καὶ τοῖς θεράπουσιν αὐτοῦ καὶ πάσῃ τῇ γῇ αὐτοῦ, 2 τοὺς πειρασμοὺς τοὺς μεγάλους, οὓς ἑωράκασιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου, τὰ σημεῖα καὶ τὰ τέρατα τὰ μεγάλα ἐκεῖνα· 3 καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῖν καρδίαν εἰδέναι καὶ ὀφθαλμοὺς βλέπειν καὶ ὦτα ἀκούειν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 4 καὶ ἤγαγεν ὑμᾶς τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ· οὐκ ἐπαλαιώθη τὰ ἱμάτια ὑμῶν, καὶ τὰ ὑποδήματα ὑμῶν οὐ κατετρίβη ἀπὸ τῶν ποδῶν ὑμῶν· 5 ἄρτον οὐκ ἐφάγετε, οἶνον καὶ σίκερα οὐκ ἐπίετε, ἵνα γνῶτε, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐγώ. 6 καὶ ἤλθετε ἕως τοῦ τόπου τούτου, καὶ ἐξῆλθε Σηὼν βασιλεὺς ᾿Εσεβὼν καὶ ῍Ωγ βασιλεὺς Βασὰν εἰς συνάντησιν ἡμῖν ἐν πολέμῳ, καὶ ἐπατάξαμεν αὐτοὺς 7 καὶ ἐλάβομεν τὴν γῆν αὐτῶν, καὶ ἔδωκα αὐτὴν ἐν κλήρῳ τῷ Ῥουβὴν καὶ τῷ Γαδδὶ καὶ τῷ ἡμίσει φυλῆς Μανασσῆ. 8 καὶ φυλάξεσθε ποιεῖν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τῆς διαθήκης ταύτης, ἵνα συνῆτε πάντα, ὅσα ποιήσετε. 9 ῾Υμεῖς ἑστήκατε πάντες σήμερον ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν, οἱ ἀρχίφυλοι ὑμῶν καὶ ἡ γερουσία ὑμῶν καὶ οἱ κριταὶ ὑμῶν, καὶ οἱ γραμματοεισαγωγεῖς ὑμῶν, πᾶς ἀνὴρ ᾿Ισραήλ, 10 αἱ γυναῖκες ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἔκγονα ὑμῶν καὶ ὁ προσήλυτος ὁ ἐν μέσῳ τῆς παρεμβολῆς ὑμῶν, ἀπὸ ξυλοκόπου ὑμῶν καὶ ἕως ὑδροφόρου ὑμῶν, 11 παρελθεῖν ἐν τῇ διαθήκῃ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἀραῖς αὐτοῦ, ὅσα Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου διατίθεται πρὸς σὲ σήμερον, 12 ἵνα στήσῃ σε αὐτῷ εἰς λαόν, καὶ αὐτὸς ἔσται σου Θεός, ὃν τρόπον εἶπέ σοι, καὶ ὃν τρόπον ὤμοσε τοῖς πατράσι σου, ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ ᾿Ιακώβ. 13 καὶ οὐχ ὑμῖν μόνοις ἐγὼ διατίθεμαι τὴν διαθήκην ταύτην καὶ τὴν ἀρὰν ταύτην, 14 ἀλλὰ καὶ τοῖς ὧδε οὖσι μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν σήμερον ἐναντίον Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν καὶ τοῖς μὴ οὖσι μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν ὧδε σήμερον. 15 ὅτι ὑμεῖς οἴδατε πῶς κατῳκήσαμεν ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ, ὡς παρήλθομεν ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἐθνῶν, οὓς παρήλθετε, 16 καὶ ἴδετε τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ εἴδωλα αὐτῶν, ξύλον καὶ λίθον, ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον, ἅ ἐστι παρ᾿ αὐτοῖς. 17 μή τίς ἐστιν ἐν ὑμῖν ἀνὴρ ἢ γυνὴ ἢ πατριὰ ἢ φυλή, τίνος ἡ διάνοια ἐξέκλινεν ἀπὸ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑμῶν πορεύεσθαι λατρεύειν τοῖς θεοῖς τῶν ἐθνῶν ἐκείνων; μὴ τίς ἐστιν ἐν ὑμῖν ῥίζα ἄνω φύουσα ἐν χολῇ καὶ πικρίᾳ; 18 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν ἀκούσῃ τὰ ρήματα τῆς ἀρᾶς ταύτης καὶ ἐπιφημίσηται ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ λέγων· ὅσιά μοι γένοιτο, ὅτι ἐνῇ ἀποπλανήσει τῆς καρδίας μου πορεύσομαι, ἵνα μὴ συναπολέσῃ ὁ ἁμαρτωλὸς τὸν ἀναμάρτητον. 19 οὐ μὴ θελήσει ὁ Θεὸς εὐϊλατεῦσαι αὐτῷ, ἀλλ᾿ ἢ τότε ἐκκαυθήσεται ὀργὴ Κυρίου καὶ ὁ ζῆλος αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ ἐκείνῳ, καὶ κολληθήσονται ἐν αὐτῷ πᾶσαι αἱ ἀραὶ τῆς διαθήκης ταύτης αἱ γεγραμμέναι ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τοῦ νόμου τούτου, καὶ ἐξαλείψει Κύριος τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς ὑπὸ τὸν οὐρανόν· 20 καὶ διαστελεῖ αὐτὸν Κύριος εἰς κακὰ ἐκ πάντων υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ κατὰ πάσας τὰς ἀρὰς τῆς διαθήκης τὰς γεγραμμένας ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τοῦ νόμου τούτου. 21 καὶ ἐροῦσιν ἡ γενεὰ ἡ ἑτέρα, οἱ υἱοὶ ὑμῶν, οἳ ἀναστήσονται μεθ᾿ ὑμᾶς, καὶ ὁ ἀλλότριος, ὃς ἂν ἔλθῃ ἐκ γῆς μακρόθεν, καὶ ὄψονται τὰς πληγὰς τῆς γῆς ἐκείνης καὶ τὰς νόσους αὐτῆς, ἃς ἀπέστειλε Κύριος ἐπ᾿ αὐτήν, 22 θεῖον καὶ ἅλα κατακεκαυμένον, πᾶσα ἡ γῆ αὐτῆς οὐ σπαρήσεται οὐδὲ ἀνατελεῖ, οὐδὲ μὴ ἀναβῇ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν πᾶν χλωρόν, ὥσπερ κατεστράφη Σόδομα και Γόμορρα, ᾿Αδαμὰ καὶ Σεβωΐμ, ἃς κατέστρεψε Κύριος ἐν θυμῷ καὶ ὀργῇ, 23 καὶ ἐροῦσι πάντα τὰ ἔθνη· διατὶ ἐποίησε Κύριος οὕτω τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ; τίς ὁ θυμὸς τῆς ὀργῆς ὁ μέγας οὗτος; 24 καὶ ἐροῦσιν· ὅτι κατέλιπον τὴν διαθήκην Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν, ἃ διέθετο τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν, ὅτε ἐξήγαγεν αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου, 25 καὶ πορευθέντες ἐλάτρευσαν θεοῖς ἑτέροις, οὓς οὐκ ἠπίσταντο, οὐδὲ διένειμεν αὐτοῖς· 26 καὶ ὠργίσθη θυμῷ Κύριος ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐκείνην ἐπαγαγεῖν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν κατὰ πάσας τὰς κατάρας τὰς γεγραμμένας ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ τοῦ νόμου τούτου, 27 καὶ ἐξῇρεν αὐτοὺς Κύριος ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς αὐτῶν ἐν θυμῷ καὶ ὀργῇ καὶ παροξυσμῷ μεγάλῳ σφόδρα, καὶ ἐξέβαλεν αὐτοὺς εἰς γῆν ἑτέραν ὡσεὶ νῦν. 28 τὰ κρυπτὰ Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ ἡμῶν, τὰ δὲ φανερὰ ἡμῖν καὶ τοῖς τέκνοις ἡμῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, ποιεῖν πάντα τὰ ρήματα τοῦ νόμου τούτου.
