God's mercy in restoring the two tables,
Deuteronomy 10:1 At that time, said Yahweh unto meCut thee out two tables of stone, like the first, and come up unto me, into the mountain,and make thee an ark of wood; Deuteronomy 10:2 that I may write, upon the tables, the words which were on the first tables, which thou brakest in pieces,then shalt thou put them in the ark. Deuteronomy 10:3 So I made an ark, of acacia wood, and cut out two tables of stone, like the first,and went up the mountain, having the two tables in my hand. Deuteronomy 10:4 And he wrote upon the tables, according to the first writingthe ten words, which Yahweh had spoken unto you in the mountain, out of the midst of the fire, in the day of the convocation,and Yahweh delivered them unto me. Deuteronomy 10:5 Then turned I, and came down out of the mountain, and put the tables in the ark which I had made,and they have remained there, as Yahweh commanded me.
in continuing the priesthood,
Deuteronomy 10:6 And, the sons of Israel, set forward out of Beeroth Bene-jaakan to Moserah,there, died Aaron, and was buried there, and Eleazar, his son, became priest in his stead. Deuteronomy 10:7 From thence, set they forward unto the Gudgodah,and from the Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land of torrents of water.
in separating the tribe of Levi,
Deuteronomy 10:8 At that time, did Yahweh separate the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of Yahweh,to stand before Yahweh, to wait upon him, and to bless in his name (until this day). Deuteronomy 10:9 For this cause, hath Levi neither portion nor inheritance, with his brethren,Yahweh, is his inheritance, as Yahweh thy God spake unto him.
in hearkening unto Moses' suit for the people.
Deuteronomy 10:10 But, I, stayed in the mountain according to the former days, forty days, and forty nights,and Yahweh hearkened unto me, at that time also, Yahweh, was not willing, to destroy thee. Deuteronomy 10:11 So then Yahweh said unto me, Up with theeto break away onward, before the people,that they may enter in, and possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers, to give unto them.
An exhortation unto obedience.
Deuteronomy 10:12 Now, therefore, O Israel, what is, Yahweh thy God, asking of thee,but to revere Yahweh thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve Yahweh thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul: Deuteronomy 10:13 to keep the commandments of Yahweh, and his statutes, which I am commanding thee today,for thy good? Deuteronomy 10:14 Lo! unto Yahweh thy God, belong the heavens, even the highest heavens,the earth, with all that is therein. Deuteronomy 10:15 Only, unto thy fathers, Yahweh became attached, so as to love them,therefore made he choice of their seed after themof youout of all the peoples (as at this day). Deuteronomy 10:16 Therefore must ye circumcise the foreskin of your hearts,and, your necks, must ye stiffen no more. Deuteronomy 10:17 For, as touching Yahweh your God, he, is God of gods, and Lord of lords; the great, the mighty, and the fearful GOD, who respecteth not persons, nor accepteth a bribe; Deuteronomy 10:18 executing the vindication of the orphan, and the widow,and loving a sojourner, giving him food and raiment. Deuteronomy 10:19 Therefore shall ye love the sojourner,for, sojourners, became ye, in the land of Egypt. Deuteronomy 10:20 Yahweh thy God, shalt thou revere, Him, shalt thou serve,And, unto him, shalt thou cleave, And, in his name, shalt thou swear. Deuteronomy 10:21 He, is thy song of praise, And, he, thy God,who hath done with thee these great and fearful things, which thine own eyes have seen. Deuteronomy 10:22 As seventy souls, went thy fathers down to Egypt,and, now, Yahweh thy God hath made thee like the stars of the heavens, for multitude.
