Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Listen, Israel: you are now following the Jordan to go to take possession of the nations that are larger and stronger than you, big cities, with fortifications to heaven,
2 a large and large nation, the sons of Anakov, about whom you know and have heard: `` Who can stand against the sons of Enakov? ''
3 Know now that the Lord thy God comes before you [as] a consuming fire; He will destroy them and cast them before you, and you will cast them out and destroy them soon, as the Lord told you.
4 When the Lord your God will cast them out from your face, do not say in your heart that for my righteousness the Lord has led me to take possession of this earth, and that for the wickedness of these nations the Lord casts them out of your face;
5 not for your righteousness and not for the righteousness of your heart you go to inherit their land, but for the ungodliness of these nations the Lord your God casts them out of your sight, and in order to fulfill the word that the Lord swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob;
6 therefore, know that it is not your righteousness that the Lord your God gives you to possess this good land, for you are a stiff people.

7 Remember, do not forget how much you irritated the Lord your God in the wilderness: from the very day you left the land of Egypt, and until your very arrival in this place, you resisted the Lord.
eight And at Horeb you irritated the Lord, and the Lord was angry with you, so that he [wanted] to destroy you,
nine when I went up the mountain to receive the tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant that the Lord made with you, and stayed on the mountain for forty days and forty nights, I didn’t eat bread or drink water,
ten and the Lord gave me two tablets of stone, written with the finger of God, and on them are all the words that the Lord spoke to you on the mountain out of the midst of fire on the day of the meeting.
eleven At the end of forty days and forty nights, the Lord gave me two tablets of stone, tablets of the covenant,
12 and the Lord said to me: Rise, go away from here soon, for your people that you brought out of Egypt are corrupted. they soon deviated from the path that I commanded them; they made a molten idol for themselves.
13 And the Lord said to me: I see this people, here it is a people of cruelty;
fourteen do not restrain Me, and I will destroy them, and I will blot out their name from under heaven, and from you I will make a people [who will be] stronger and more numerous than them.
fifteen I turned and went down the mountain, but the mountain burned with fire; the two tablets of the covenant [were] in both hands of mine;
16 and I saw that you had sinned against the Lord your God, made yourself a molten calf, and soon deviated from the path that the Lord commanded you to [keep];
17 and I took both the tablets, and threw them out of both my hands, and broke them before your eyes.
18 And having plunged before the Lord, I prayed, as before, forty days and forty nights, I didn’t eat bread or drink water, for all your sins that you have sinned by doing evil in the eyes of the Lord and irritating Him;
19 for I was afraid of the anger and fury with which the Lord was angry with you [and wanted] to destroy you. And the Lord listened to me this time too.
20 And the Lord was very angry with Aaron [and wanted] to destroy him; but I also prayed for Aaron at that time.
21 But your sin that you made - I took the calf, burned it in the fire, broke it and was hysterical to the point that it was as small as dust, and I threw this dust into the stream flowing from the mountain.
22 And in Taver, Mass, and Kibroth-Gattaav, you annoyed the Lord.
23 And when the Lord sent you from Kadesh-Varni, saying: go, take possession of the land that I give you - that you opposed the command of the Lord your God, and did not believe him, and did not listen to his voice.
24 You have been disobedient to the Lord from the very day I began to know you.
25 And plunging before the Lord, I begged for forty days and forty nights in which I prayed, for the Lord wanted to destroy you;
26 and I prayed to the Lord and said: Lord God, do not destroy your people and your inheritance, which you delivered with the greatness [strength] of which you brought out of Egypt with your strong hand.
27 remember thy servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Do not look at the bitterness of this people and their wickedness and their sins,
28 so that [those who live] in the land from which you brought us out do not say: `The Lord could not bring them into the land that you promised them, and, hating them, he brought them out to put them to death in the wilderness. '
29th And they are Your people and Your inheritance, which You brought [out of the land of Egypt] by your great strength and by your high muscle.
