Here beginneth the 4th chapter of Deuteronomy.
Lord God of your fathers giveth you.Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do , that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the
Lord your God which I command you.Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the
Lord did because of Baal-peor: for all the men that followed Baal-peor, the Lord thy God hath destroyed them from among you.Your eyes have seen what the
Lord your God alive every one of you this day.But ye that did cleave unto the
Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the
Keep therefore and do ; for this your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation a wise and understanding people.
Lord our God in all we call upon him ?For what nation great, who God nigh unto them, as the
And what nation great, that hath statutes and judgments righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;
Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and they may teach their children.the day that thou stoodest before the
And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.
Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only a voice.And the
And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.
Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.And the
Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day the
Lest ye corrupt , and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
The likeness of any beast that on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,
The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that in the waters beneath the earth:
Lord thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the
Lord hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as this day.But the
Lord was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee an inheritance:Furthermore the
But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye shall go over, and possess that good land.
Lord your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, the likeness of any , which the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee.Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the
Lord thy God a consuming fire, a jealous God.For the
Lord thy God, to provoke him to anger:When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt , and make a graven image, the likeness of any , and shall do evil in the sight of the
I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.
Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you.And the
And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
Lord thy God, thou shalt find , if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.But if from thence thou shalt seek the
Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, in the latter days, if thou turn to the
Lord thy God a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.(For the
For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been as this great thing , or hath been heard like it?
Did people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?
Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?Or hath God assayed to go take him a nation from the midst of nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the
Lord he God; none else beside him.Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the
Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.
And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;
To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou , to bring thee in, to give thee their land an inheritance, as this day.
Lord he God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: none else.Know therefore this day, and consider in thine heart, that the
Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever.Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong days upon the earth, which the
Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward the sunrising;
That the slayer might flee thither, which should kill his neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing unto one of these cities he might live:
, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, of the Manassites.
And this the law which Moses set before the children of Israel:
These the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Moses spake unto the children of Israel, after they came forth out of Egypt,
On this side Jordan, in the valley over against Beth-peor, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel smote, after they were come forth out of Egypt:
And they possessed his land, and the land of Og king of Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, which on this side Jordan toward the sunrising;
From Aroer, which by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto mount Sion, which Hermon,
And all the plain on this side Jordan eastward, even unto the sea of the plain, under the springs of Pisgah.
Here endeth the first lesson.
Here beginneth the 6th chapter of Galatians.
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
For every man shall bear his own burden.
Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all , especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.
As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.
And as many as walk according to this rule, peace on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.
From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with your spirit. Amen.
