Deuteronomy 29:1 These [are] the woordes of the Couenant which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the Couenant which he made with them in Horeb.
Moses exhorteth them to obedience, by the memory of the works they had seen.
Deuteronomy 29:2 And Moses called vnto all Israel, and said vnto them, Yee haue seene all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt vnto Pharaoh, and vnto all his seruants, and vnto all his land; Deuteronomy 29:3 The great temptations which thine eyes haue seene, the signes and those great miracles: Deuteronomy 29:4 Yet the LORD hath not giuen you an heart to perceiue, and eyes to see, and eares to heare, vnto this day. Deuteronomy 29:5 And I haue led you fourtie yeres in the wildernes: your clothes are not waxen old vpon you, and thy shooe is not waxen old vpon thy foot. Deuteronomy 29:6 Ye haue not eaten bread, neither haue you drunke wine, or strong drink: that yee might knowe that I am the LORD your God. Deuteronomy 29:7 And when yee came vnto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the King of Bashan, came out against vs vnto battell, and wee smote them. Deuteronomy 29:8 And wee tooke their lande, and gaue it for an inheritance vnto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the halfe tribe of Manasseh. Deuteronomy 29:9 Keepe therefore the wordes of this Couenant and doe them, that yee may prosper in all that ye doe.
All are presented before the LORD to enter into his Covenant.
Deuteronomy 29:10 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God: your captaines of your tribes, your Elders, and your officers, [with] all the men of Israel, Deuteronomy 29:11 Your litle ones, your wiues, and thy stranger that is in thy campe, from the hewer of thy wood, vnto the drawer of thy water: Deuteronomy 29:12 That thou shouldest enter into Couenant with the LORD thy God, and into his othe which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this day: Deuteronomy 29:13 That he may establish thee to day for a people vnto himselfe, and that hee may be vnto thee a God, as he hath said vnto thee, and as he hath sworne vnto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Iacob. Deuteronomy 29:14 Neither with you onely doe I make this couenant and this othe: Deuteronomy 29:15 But with him that standeth here with vs this day before the LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with vs this day: Deuteronomy 29:16 (For ye know how we haue dwelt in the land of Egypt, and how we came thorow the nations which ye passed by. Deuteronomy 29:17 And ye haue seene their abominations, and their idoles, wood, and stone, siluer, and gold, which were among them.)
The great wrath on him that flattereth himself in his wickedness.
Deuteronomy 29:18 Lest there should be among you man or woman, or familie, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day fro the LORD our God, to goe [and] serue the gods of these nations: lest there should bee among you a root that beareth gall and wormewood, Deuteronomy 29:19 And it come to passe when he heareth the wordes of this curse, that hee blesse himselfe in his heart, saying, I shall haue peace, though I walke in the imagination of mine heart, to adde drunkennesse to thirst: Deuteronomy 29:20 The LORD wil not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD, and his ielousie shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this booke shall lie vpon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from vnder heauen. Deuteronomy 29:21 And the LORD shall separate him vnto euill, out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the Couenant, that are written in this booke of the Law: Deuteronomy 29:22 So that the generation to come of your children, that shall rise vp after you, and the stranger that shall come from a farre land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath layd vpon it; Deuteronomy 29:23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone and salt, [and] burning, that it is not sowen, nor beareth, nor any grasse groweth therein, like the ouerthrow of Sodome, and Gomorah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD ouerthrew in his anger, and in his wrath: Deuteronomy 29:24 Euen al nations shal say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus vnto this land? what [meaneth] the heat of this great anger? Deuteronomy 29:25 Then men shall say, Because they haue forsaken the Couenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them foorth out of the land of Egypt. Deuteronomy 29:26 For they went and serued other gods, & worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and [whom] he had not giuen vnto them. Deuteronomy 29:27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring vpon it all the curses, that are written in this booke. Deuteronomy 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.
Secret things belong to the LORD.
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things [belong] vnto the LORD our God: but those things which are reuealed [belong] vnto vs, and to our children for euer, that wee may doe all the words of this Law.
