Deuteronomy 29:1 These are the wordes of the appoyntment, which the Lorde commaunded Moses, to make wyth the chyldren of Israel in the lande of Moab, besyde þe appoyntment which he made wyth them in Horeb,
Moses exhorteth them to obedience, by the memory of the works they had seen.
Deuteronomy 29:2 and Moses called all Israel, and sayde vnto them: Ye haue sene all that the Lorde dyd before youre eyes in the lande of Egipt, vnto Pharao and vnto all hys seruauntes, and vnto all hys lande, Deuteronomy 29:3 the greate temptacions which thyne eyes haue sene, those greate myracles and wonders: Deuteronomy 29:4 and yet the Lorde hath not geuen you an herte to perceaue, and eyes to se, and eares to heare vnto thys daye. Deuteronomy 29:5 And I haue led you .xl. yeare in the wyldernesse: and youre clothes are not waxed olde vpon you, and thy showe is not waxed olde vpon thy fote. Deuteronomy 29:6 Ye haue eaten no bread, nor droncke wyne or stronge dryncke, that ye myghte knowe, howe that I am the Lord youre God. Deuteronomy 29:7 And ye came vnto this place, & Sehon the kynge of Hesbon, and Og kynge of Basan came out agaynst vs vnto battell, and we smote them, Deuteronomy 29:8 and toke theyr lande, & gaue it for an inheritaunce vnto the Rubenites & Gadites, and to the halfe trybe of Manasse. Deuteronomy 29:9 kepe therfore the wordes of this appoyntment and do them, that ye maye vnderstande all that ye ought to do.
All are presented before the LORD to enter into his Covenant.
Deuteronomy 29:10 Ye stande thys daye euery one of you before the Lorde your God: youre captaynes, youre trybes, your elders, youre offycers, and all the men of Israel: Deuteronomy 29:11 youre chyldren also, youre wyues & the straunger that is in thyne hoste from the hewer of thy wodd, vnto the drawer of thy water: Deuteronomy 29:12 that thou shuldest go into the appoyntment of the Lord thy God, & into his othe which the Lord thy God maketh wyth þe this daye. Deuteronomy 29:13 For to make the a people vnto him selfe, and that he maye be vnto the a God, as he hath sayde vnto the, and as he hath sworne vnto thy fathers Abraham, Isahac and Iacob. Deuteronomy 29:14 I make not thys bonde & this othe wyth you only: Deuteronomy 29:15 but both wyth hym that standeth here wyth vs this daye before the Lord oure God, and also wyth hym that is not here with vs this daye. Deuteronomy 29:16 For ye knowe, howe we haue dwelt in the lande of Egypte, and how we came thorowe the myddes of the nacions whych ye passed by. Deuteronomy 29:17 And ye haue sene theyr abhominacyons and theyr ydolles: (wod & stone, syluer and golde) whych were amonge them.
The great wrath on him that flattereth himself in his wickedness.
Deuteronomy 29:18 Lest there be amonge you man or woman, kynred or trybe, whose hert turneth awaye this daye from the Lorde oure God, to go and serue the goddes of these nacyons: & lest there be amonge you some roote that beareth gall & worm wod, Deuteronomy 29:19 so that when he heareth the wordes of thys ooth, he blesse hym selfe in hys hert, sayinge. I shall haue peace. I wyll walke in the meanynge of myne owne hert, (Thou put the dronken to the thyrstye.) Deuteronomy 29:20 And so the Lorde wyll not consent to be mercyfull vnto hym, but then the wrath of the Lorde and hys gelousye shall smoke agaynst that man, & all the curses that are wryten in this boke shall lyght vpon hym, and the Lorde shall do out hys name from vnder heauen, Deuteronomy 29:21 and the Lorde shall separate him vnto euell out of all þe tribes of Israel, accordyng vnto all the curses of the appoyntment, that are wrytten in the boke of thys lawe. Deuteronomy 29:22 So that the generacyon to come of youre chyldren, that shall ryse vp after you, and the straunger that shall come from a farre lande shall saye, when they se the plages of that lande, and the diseases wherwith the Lorde hath smytten it, Deuteronomy 29:23 howe all the lande is burnt vp with brymstone & salt, & that it is nether sowen nor beareth, nor any grasse groweth therin, lyke as in the place of the ouerthrowynge of Sodome, Gomor, Adama, & Zeboim: whych the Lorde ouerthrewe in hys wrath and angre: Deuteronomy 29:24 Euen then shall all nacions saye: wherfore hath the Lorde done of this facyon vnto thys lande? O howe fearse is thys great wrath? Deuteronomy 29:25 And men shalt saye: because they lefte the testament of the Lorde God of theyr fathers whych he made with them, when he brought them out of the lande of Egypt. Deuteronomy 29:26 For they went, and serued straunge goddes, & worshipped them: Goddes whych they knewe not, and whych had geuen them nought. Deuteronomy 29:27 And the wrath of the Lorde waxed whote agaynst thys lande, to brynge vpon it all the curses that are written in this boke. Deuteronomy 29:28 And the Lorde cast them out of theyr lande in angre, wrath, and greate indignacyon, and cast them into a straunge lande, as this daye beareth wytnesse.
Secret things belong to the LORD.
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secrettes of the Lorde oure God are opened vnto vs, and to oure chyldren for euer, þt we maye do all the wordes of thys lawe.
