Deuteronomy 10:3 And I made an arke of sethyn wood & hewed two tables of stone like vnto þe fyrste, and wente vp into the mountayne and the .ij. tables in myne hand. Deuteronomy 10:4 And he wrote in the tables, according to þe spake vnto you in the mount of þe fyre in the day when the people gathered togither and gaue them vnto me. Deuteronomy 10:5 And I departed & came downe from the hil and put the tables in the arke whych I had made: and there they remained, as the Lord commaunded me.

An exhortation unto obedience.
Deuteronomy 10:12 And now Israel what is it that the Lord thy God requireth of the, but to feare þe lord thy God and to walke in all hys wayes & to loue him & to serue the Lord thy God with al thyne herte, & with al thy soule, Deuteronomy 10:13 that thou kepe the commaundementes of the Lorde & hys ordinaunces which I commaund the this day, for thy wealth. Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, heauen and the heauen of heauens is the Lordes thy God, & the earth wt al that therin is: Deuteronomy 10:15 onely the Lorde had a lust vnto thy fathers to loue them, and therfore chose you their sede after them of al nacions, as it is come to passe this day. Deuteronomy 10:16 Circumcyse therefore the foreskynne of youre hertes, and be no lenger styfenecked. Deuteronomy 10:17 For the Lord your God, he is god of Goddes, and Lorde of Lordes, a greate God, a myghty and a terrible whych regardeth no mans person, nor taketh giftes: Deuteronomy 10:18 but doth right vnto the fatherles & wydowe and loueth the straunger, to giue him fode and raiment. Deuteronomy 10:19 Loue therfore þe straunger, for ye were straungers your selues in the lande of Egypt. Deuteronomy 10:20 Thou shalt feare thy Lord thy God & serue him, and cleaue vnto him, & sweare by his name, Deuteronomy 10:21 for he is thy prayse and he is thy God þt hathe done these greate & terrible thynges for the, whych thine eyes haue sene. Deuteronomy 10:22 Thy fathers went downe into Egypt wt .lxx. soules & nowe the Lord thy God hath made the as the starres of heauen in multitude.
