1 At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make thee an ark of wood;
2 and I will write upon the tables the words that were on the first tablets which you broke; and put them in the ark.
3 And I made an ark of acacia wood, and hewed two tables of stone like the first, and went up the mountain; the two tables [were] in my arms.
4 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly, and gave them to the Lord to me.
5 And I turned and came down from the mountain, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me.
6 And the children of Israel journeyed from Beeroth Bene-jaakan to Moser; Aaron died there and was buried there, and became a priest in his place his son Eleazar.
7 Thence in Gudgod from Gudgoda to Jotbathah, a land of brooks of water.
8 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the Lord, to serve Him, and bless His name, [how it goes] to this day;
9 Wherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren; the LORD is their inheritance, as the LORD thy God promised him.
10 And I stayed in the mount, as in the old days, forty days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me, and this time, [and] the LORD would not destroy thee;
eleven and the LORD said unto me, Arise, take thy journey before the people [sim]; that they may go in and possess the land which I swore unto their fathers to give them.

12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of you? Togo only to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all His ways, and His love, and to serve the LORD, your God, with all your and with all thy soul,
13 To keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command thee this day, for thy good.
14 That the LORD thy God, heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth and all that is in it;
15 but only the Lord thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, from all peoples, as at this day [see].
16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff-necked;
17 for the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, strong and terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward,
18 The judgment of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing.
19 Love ye therefore the stranger: for [ourselves] were strangers in the land of Egypt.
20 The LORD your God, fear [and] him [one] to serve, and to Him shall cleave, and swear by his name:
21 He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and fearful [things] which thine eyes have seen;
22 seventy souls thy fathers went down into Egypt, and the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven.
