Chapter 1:46 Verses

05 Deuteronomy

(Geneva 1587) .

05-1:1††††† These bee the wordes which Moses spake vnto all Israel, on this side Iorden in the wildernesse, in the plaine, ouer against the red Sea, betweene Paran and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, & Di-zahab.

05-1:2††††† There are eleuen dayes iourney from Horeb vnto Kadesh-barnea, by the way of mout Seir.

05-1:3††††† And it came to passe in the first day of the eleuenth moneth, in the fourtieth yeere that Moses spake vnto the children of Israel according vnto all that the Lord had giuen him in commandement vnto them,

05-1:4††††† After that he had slaine Sihon the king of the Amorites which dwelt in Heshbon, & Og king of Bashan, which dwelt at Ashtaroth in Edrei.

05-1:5††††† On this side Iorden in the lande of Moab began Moses to declare this lawe, saying,

05-1:6††††† The Lord our God spake vnto vs in Horeb, saying, Ye haue dwelt long ynough in this mount,

05-1:7††††† Turne you and depart, and goe vnto the mountaine of the Amorites, and vnto all places neere thereunto in the plaine, in the mountaine, or in the valley: both Southwarde, and to the Sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and vnto Lebanon: euen vnto the great riuer, the riuer Perath.

05-1:8††††† Beholde, I haue set the land before you: go in and possesse that land which the Lorde sware vnto your fathers, Abraham, Izhak, and Iaakob, to giue vnto them and to their seede after them.

05-1:9††††† And I spake vnto you the same time, saying, I am not able to beare you my selfe alone:

05-1:10†††† The Lord your God hath multiplied you: and beholde, ye are this day as the starres of heauen in nomber:

05-1:11†††† (The Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many moe as ye are, and blesse you, as he hath promised you)

05-1:12†††† Howe can I alone beare your combrance and your charge, and your strife?

05-1:13†††† Bring you men of wisedome and of vnderstanding, and knowen among your tribes, and I will make them rulers ouer you:

05-1:14†††† Then ye answered me and said, The thing is good that thou hast commanded vs to doe.

05-1:15†††† So I tooke the chiefe of your tribes wise and knowen men, & made them rulers ouer you, captaines ouer thousands, and captaines ouer hundreds, and captaines ouer fiftie, and captaines ouer tenne, and officers among your tribes.

05-1:16†††† And I charged your iudges that same time, saying, Heare the controuersies betweene your brethren, and iudge righteously betwene euery man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

05-1:17†††† Ye shal haue no respect of person in iudgement, but shall heare the small aswell as the great: yee shall not feare the face of man: for the iudgemet is Gods: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring vnto me, and I will heare it.

05-1:18†††† Also I commaunded you the same time all the things which ye should doe.

05-1:19†††† Then we departed from Horeb, and went through all that great and terrible wildernesse (as yee haue seene) by the way of the mountaine of the Amorites, as the Lord our God commaunded vs: and we came to Kadesh-barnea.

05-1:20†††† And I saide vnto you, Yee are come vnto the mountaine of the Amorites, which the Lorde our God doeth giue vnto vs.

05-1:21†††† Beholde, the Lord thy God hath layde the land before thee: go vp and possesse it, as the Lord the God of thy fathers hath saide vnto thee: feare not, neither be discouraged.

05-1:22†††† Then ye came vnto me euery one, and said, We wil send men before vs, to search vs out the land & to bring vs word againe, what way we must go vp by, & vnto what cities we shall come.

05-1:23†††† So the saying pleased me well, and I tooke twelue men of you, of euery tribe one.

05-1:24†††† Who departed, and went vp into the mountaine, and came vnto the riuer Eshcol, and searched out the land.

05-1:25†††† And tooke of the fruite of the land in their hands, and brought it vnto vs, and brought vs worde againe, and sayd, It is a good land, which the Lord our God doeth giue vs.

05-1:26†††† Notwithstanding, ye would not go vp, but were disobedient vnto the commaundement of the Lord your God,

05-1:27†††† And murmured in your tentes, & sayd, Because the Lorde hated vs, therefore hath hee brought vs out of the land of Egypt, to deliuer vs into the hand of the Amorites, and to destroy vs.

05-1:28†††† Whither shal we go vp? our brethren haue discouraged our hearts, saying, The people is greater, and taller then we: the cities are great and walled vp to heauen: and moreouer we haue seene the sonnes of the Anakims there.

05-1:29†††† But I sayd vnto you, Dread not, nor be afrayd of them.

05-1:30†††† The Lord your God, who goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did vnto you in Egypt before your eyes,

05-1:31†††† And in the wildernesse, where thou hast seene how the Lord thy God bare thee, as a man doeth beare his sonne, in all the way which ye haue gone, vntill ye came vnto this place.

05-1:32†††† Yet for all this ye did not beleeue the Lord your God,

05-1:33†††† Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tentes in, in fire by night, that ye might see what way to goe, and in a cloude by day.

05-1:34†††† Then the Lorde heard the voyce of your wordes, and was wroth, and sware, saying,

05-1:35†††† Surely there shall not one of these men of this froward generation, see that good land, which I sware to giue vnto your fathers,

05-1:36†††† Saue Caleb the sonne of Iephunneh: he shall see it, and to him will I giue the land that he hath troden vpon, and to his children, because he hath constantly followed the Lord.

05-1:37†††† Also the Lorde was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not goe in thither,

05-1:38†††† But Ioshua the sonne of Nun which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: incourage him: for he shal cause Israel to inherite it.

05-1:39†††† Moreouer, your children, which ye sayd should be a praye, and your sonnes, which in that day had no knowledge betweene good and euill, they shall go in thither, and vnto them wil I giue it, and they shall possesse it.

05-1:40†††† But as for you, turne backe, and take your iourney into the wildernesse by the way of the red Sea.

05-1:41†††† Then ye answered and sayd vnto me, We haue sinned against the Lord, we wil go vp, and fight, according to all that the Lorde our God hath commaunded vs: and ye armed you euery man to the warre, and were ready to goe vp into the mountaine.

05-1:42†††† But the Lord said vnto me, Say vnto them, Goe not vp, neither fight, (for I am not among you) least ye fall before your enemies.

05-1:43†††† And when I told you, ye would not heare, but rebelled against the commaundement of the Lord, and were presumptuous, and went vp into the mountaine.

05-1:44†††† Then the Amorites which dwelt in that mountaine came out against you, and chased you (as bees vse to doe) and destroied you in Seir, euen vnto Hormah.

05-1:45†††† And when ye came againe, ye wept before the Lord, but the Lorde would not heare your voyce, nor incline his eares vnto you.

05-1:46†††† So ye abode in Kadesh a long time, according to the time that ye had remained before.

Deuteronomy 2:

Chapter 2:37 Verses

05 Deuteronomy

(Geneva 1587) .

05-2:1††††† Then we turned, and tooke our iourney into the wildernes, by the way of the red Sea, as the Lorde spake vnto me: and we compassed mount Seir a long time.

05-2:2††††† And the Lord spake vnto me, saying,

05-2:3††††† Ye haue compassed this mountaine long ynough: turne you Northward.

05-2:4††††† And warne thou the people, saying, Ye shall go through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir, and they shall be afraide of you: take ye good heede therefore.

05-2:5††††† Ye shall not prouoke them: for I wil not giue you of their land so much as a foot breadth, because I haue giuen mount Seir vnto Esau for a possession.

05-2:6††††† Ye shall buy meate of them for money to eate, and ye shall also procure water of them for money to drinke.

05-2:7††††† For the Lord thy God hath blessed thee in all the workes of thine hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wildernes, and the Lorde thy God hath bene with thee this fourtie yeere, and thou hast lacked nothing.

05-2:8††††† And when we were departed from our brethren the children of Esau which dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plaine, from Elath, and from Ezion-gaber, we turned and went by the way of the wildernes of Moab.

05-2:9††††† Then the Lord sayd vnto me, Thou shalt not vexe Moab, neither prouoke them to battel: for I wil not giue thee of their land for a possession, because I haue giuen Ar vnto the children of Lot for a possession.

05-2:10†††† The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great and many, & tall, as the Anakims.

05-2:11†††† They also were taken for gyants as the Anakims: whom the Moabites call Emims.

05-2:12†††† The Horims also dwelt in Seir before time, whome the children of Esau chased out and destroyed them before them, and dwelt in their steade: as Israel shall doe vnto the land of his possession, which the Lord hath giuen them.

05-2:13†††† Now rise vp, sayd I, and get you ouer the riuer Zered: and we went ouer the riuer Zered.

05-2:14†††† The space also wherein we came from Kadesh-barnea, vntill we were come ouer the riuer Zered, was eight and thirtie yeeres, vntill all the generation of the men of warre were wasted out from among the hoste, as the Lord sware vnto them.

05-2:15†††† For in deede the hand of the Lorde was against them, to destroy them from among the hoste, till they were consumed.

05-2:16†††† So when all the men of warre were consumed and dead from among the people:

05-2:17†††† Then the Lord spake vnto me, saying,

05-2:18†††† Thou shalt goe through Ar the coast of Moab this day:

05-2:19†††† And thou shalt come neere ouer against the children of Ammon: but shalt not lay siege vnto them, nor moue warre against them: for I will not giue thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession: for I haue giuen it vnto the children of Lot for a possession.

05-2:20†††† That also was taken for a land of gyants: for gyants dwelt therein afore time, whome the Ammonites called Zamzummims:

05-2:21†††† A people that was great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims: but the Lord destroyed them before them, and they succeeded them in their inheritance, and dwelt in their stead:

05-2:22†††† As he did to the children of Esau which dwell in Seir, when he destroyed the Horims before them, and they possessed them, and dwelt in their stead vnto this day.

05-2:23†††† And the Auims which dwelt in Hazarim euen vnto Azzah, the Caphtorims which came out of Caphtor destroyed them, and dwelt in their steade.

05-2:24†††† Rise vp therefore, sayd the Lord: take your iourney, and passe ouer the riuer Arnon: beholde, I haue giuen into thy hand Sihon, the Amorite, King of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possesse it and prouoke him to battell.

05-2:25†††† This day wil I begin to send thy feare and thy dread, vpon all people vnder the whole heauen, which shall heare thy fame, and shal tremble and quake before thee.

05-2:26†††† Then I sent messengers out of the wildernes of Kedemoth vnto Sihon King of Heshbon, with wordes of peace, saying,

05-2:27†††† Let me passe through thy land: I will go by the hie way: I will neither turne vnto the right hand nor to the left.

05-2:28†††† Thou shalt sell me meate for money, for to eate, and shalt giue me water for money for to drinke: onely I will go through on my foote,

05-2:29†††† (As the children of Esau which dwell in Seir, and the Moabites which dwell in Ar, did vnto me) vntill I be come ouer Iorden, into the land which the Lord our God giueth vs.

05-2:30†††† But Sihon the King of Heshbon would not let vs passe by him: for the Lorde thy God had hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, because hee would deliuer him into thine hand, as appeareth this day.

05-2:31†††† And the Lorde sayd vnto me, Beholde, I haue begun to giue Sihon and his land before thee: begin to possesse and inherite his land.

05-2:32†††† Then came out Sihon to meete vs, him selfe with all his people to fight at Iahaz.

05-2:33†††† But the Lord our God deliuered him into our power, and we smote him, and his sonnes, and all his people.

05-2:34†††† And we tooke all his cities the same time, and destroyed euery citie, men, and women, and children: we let nothing remaine.

05-2:35†††† Onely the cattell we tooke to our selues, and the spoyle of the cities which we tooke,

05-2:36†††† From Aroer, which is by the banke of the riuer of Arnon, and from the citie that is vpon the riuer, euen vnto Gilead: there was not one citie that escaped vs: for the Lorde our God deliuered vp all before vs.

05-2:37†††† Onely vnto the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not, nor vnto any place of the riuer Iabbok, nor vnto the cities in the mountaines, nor vnto whatsoeuer the Lorde our God forbade vs.

05 Deuteronomy

(Geneva 1587) .

05-3:1††††† Then we turned, and went vp by the way of Bashan: and Og King of Bashan came out against vs, he, and all his people to fight at Edrei.

05-3:2††††† And the Lorde sayde vnto me, Feare him not, for I will deliuer him, and all his people, and his land into thine hand, and thou shalt doe vnto him as thou diddest vnto Sihon King of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

05-3:3††††† So the Lorde our God deliuered also vnto our hand, Og the King of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him, vntill none was left him aliue,

05-3:4††††† And we tooke all his cities the same time, neither was there a citie which we tooke not from them, euen three score cities, and all ye countrey of Argob, the kingdome of Og in Bashan.

05-3:5††††† All these cities were fenced with hie walles, gates and barres, beside vnwalled townes a great many.

05-3:6††††† And we ouerthrewe them, as we did vnto Sihon King of Heshbon, destroying euery citie, with men, women, and children.

05-3:7††††† But all the cattell and the spoyle of the cities we tooke for our selues.

05-3:8††††† Thus we tooke at that time out of the hand of two Kings of the Amorites, the land that was on this side Iorden from the riuer of Arnon vnto mount Hermon:

05-3:9††††† (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Shirion, but the Amorites call it Shenir)

05-3:10†††† All the cities of the plaine, and all Gilead, and all Bashan vnto Salchah, and Edrei, cities of the kingdome of Og in Bashan.

05-3:11†††† For onely Og King of Bashan remained of the remnant of the gyants, whose bed was a bed of yron: is it not at Rabbath among the children of Ammon? The length thereof is nine cubites, and foure cubites the breadth of it, after the cubite of a man.

05-3:12†††† And this land which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the riuer of Arnon, and halfe mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gaue I vnto the Reubenites and Gadites.

05-3:13†††† And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, the kingdome of Og, gaue I vnto the halfe tribe of Manasseh: euen all the countrey of Argob with all Bashan, which is called, The land of gyants.

05-3:14†††† Iair the sonne of Manasseh tooke all the countrey of Argob, vnto the coastes of Geshuri, and of Maachathi: and called them after his owne name, Bashan, Hauoth Iair vnto this day.

05-3:15†††† And I gaue part of Gilead vnto Machir.

05-3:16†††† And vnto the Reubenites and Gadites I gaue the rest of Gilead, and vnto the riuer of Arnon, halfe the riuer and the borders, euen vnto the riuer Iabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon:

05-3:17†††† The plaine also and Iorden, and the borders from Chinnereth euen vnto the Sea of the plaine, to wit, the salt Sea vnder the springs of Pisgah Eastwarde.

05-3:18†††† And I commanded you the same time, saying, The Lorde your God hath giuen you this lande to possesse it: ye shall goe ouer armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all men of warre.

05-3:19†††† Your wiues onely, and your children, and your cattel (for I know that ye haue much cattel) shall abide in your cities, which I haue giuen you,

05-3:20†††† Vntill the Lorde haue giuen rest vnto your brethren as vnto you, and that they also possesse the lande, which the Lorde your God hath giuen them beyond Iorden: then shall ye returne euery man vnto his possession, which I haue giuen you.

05-3:21†††† And I charged Ioshua the same time, saying, Thine eyes haue seene all that the Lorde your God hath done vnto these two Kings: so shall the Lorde doe vnto all the kingdomes whither thou goest.

05-3:22†††† Ye shall not feare them: for the Lord your God, he shall fight for you.

05-3:23†††† And I besought the Lorde the same time, saying,

05-3:24†††† O Lord God, thou hast begunne to shewe thy seruant thy greatnesse and thy mightie hande: for where is there a God in heauen or in earth, that can do like thy workes, and like thy power?

05-3:25†††† I pray thee let me go ouer & see the good land that is beyond Iorden, that goodly mountaine, and Lebanon.

05-3:26†††† But the Lord was angrie with me for your sakes, and would not heare me: and the Lord said vnto me, Let it suffice thee, speake no more vnto me of this matter.

05-3:27†††† Get thee vp into the top of Pisgah, and lift vp thine eyes Westward, and Northwarde, and Southward, and Eastward, & behold it with thine eyes, for thou shalt not goe ouer this Iorden:

05-3:28†††† But charge Ioshua, and incourage him, and bolden him: for hee shall goe before this people, and he shall deuide for inheritance vnto them, the land which thou shalt see.

05-3:29†††† So wee abode in the valley ouer against Beth-Peor.

Deuteronomy 4:

Chapter 4:49 Verses

05 Deuteronomy

(Geneva 1587) .

05-4:1††††† Nowe therefore hearken, O Israel, vnto the ordinances and to the lawes which I teache you to doe, that ye may liue and goe in, and possesse the lande, which the Lorde God of your fathers giueth you.

05-4:2††††† Ye shal put nothing vnto the word which I command you, neither shal ye take ought there from, that ye may keepe the commandements of the Lord your God which I commande you.

05-4:3††††† Your eyes haue seene what the Lord did because of Baal-Peor, for al the men that folowed Baal-Peor the Lord thy God hath destroyed euery one from among you.

05-4:4††††† But ye that did cleaue vnto the Lord your God, are aliue euery one of you this day.

05-4:5††††† Behold, I haue taught you ordinances, and lawes, as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should doe euen so within the land whither ye goe to possesse it.

05-4:6††††† Keepe them therefore, and doe them; for that is your wisdome, and your vnderstanding in the sight of the people, which shall heare all these ordinances, and shall say, Onely this people is wise, and of vnderstanding, and a great nation.

05-4:7††††† For what nation is so great, vnto whome the gods come so neere vnto them, as the Lorde our God is neere vnto vs, in all that we call vnto him for?

05-4:8††††† And what nation is so great, that hath ordinances and lawes so righteous, as all this Lawe, which I set before you this day?

05-4:9††††† But take heede to thy selfe, and keepe thy soule diligently, that thou forget not the thinges which thine eyes haue seene, and that they depart not out of thine heart, all the dayes of thy life: but teach them thy sonnes, and thy sonnes sonnes:

05-4:10†††† Forget not the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said vnto me, Gather me the people together, and I wil cause them heare my wordes, that they may learne to feare me all the dayes that they shal liue vpon the earth, and that they may teache their children:

05-4:11†††† Then came you neere and stoode vnder the mountaine, and the mountaine burnt with fire vnto the mids of heauen, and there was darkenesse, cloudes and mist.

05-4:12†††† And the Lorde spake vnto you out of the middes of the fire, and ye heard the voyce of the wordes, but sawe no similitude, saue a voyce.

05-4:13†††† Then hee declared vnto you his couenant which he commanded you to doe, euen the ten commaundements, and wrote them vpon two tables of stone.

05-4:14†††† And the Lord commanded me that same time, that I should teach you ordinances & lawes, which ye should obserue in the lande, whither ye goe, to possesse it.

05-4:15†††† Take therefore good heede vnto your selues: for ye sawe no image in the day that the Lord spake vnto you in Horeb out of the middes of the fire:

05-4:16†††† That ye corrupt not your selues, and make you a grauen image or representation of any figure: whither it be the likenes of male or female,

05-4:17†††† The likenes of any beast that is on earth, or the likenesse of any fethered foule that flieth in the aire:

05-4:18†††† Or the likenesse of any thing that creepeth on the earth, or the likenesse of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth,

05-4:19†††† And lest thou lift vp thine eyes vnto heauen, and when thou seest the sunne & the moone and the starres with all the host of heauen, shouldest bee driuen to worship them and serue them, which the Lord thy God hath distributed to all people vnder the whole heauen.

05-4:20†††† But the Lorde hath taken you and brought you out of the yron fornace: out of Egypt to be vnto him a people and inheritance, as appeareth this day.

05-4:21†††† And the Lord was angrie with me for your words, and sware that I should not goe ouer Iorden, and that I should not goe in vnto that good land, which the Lord thy God giueth thee for an inheritance.

05-4:22†††† For I must die in this land, and shall not go ouer Iorden: but ye shall goe ouer, and possesse that good land.

05-4:23†††† Take heede vnto your selues, least ye forget the couenant of the Lorde your God which hee made with you, and least ye make you any grauen image, or likenes of any thing, as the Lorde thy God hath charged thee.

05-4:24†††† For the Lorde thy God is a consuming fire, and a ielous God.

05-4:25†††† When thou shalt beget children and childrens children, and shalt haue remained long in the land, if ye corrupt your selues, and make any grauen image, or likenes of any thing, and worke euill in the sight of the Lord thy God, to prouoke him to anger,

05-4:26†††† I call heauen and earth to record against you this day, that ye shall shortly perish from the land, whereunto ye goe ouer Iorden to possesse it: ye shall not prolong your dayes therein, but shall vtterly be destroyed.

05-4:27†††† And the Lord shall scatter you among the people, and ye shall be left few in nomber among the nations, whither the Lord shall bring you:

05-4:28†††† And there ye shall serue gods, euen ye worke of mans hand, wood, and stone, which neither see, nor heare, nor eate, nor smell.

05-4:29†††† But if from thence thou shalt seeke the Lord thy God, thou shalt finde him, if thou seeke him with all thine heart, and with all thy soule.

05-4:30†††† When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come vpon thee, at the length if thou returne to the Lorde thy God, and bee obedient vnto his voyce,

05-4:31†††† (For the Lord thy God is a mercifull God) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the couenant of thy fathers, which hee sware vnto them.

05-4:32†††† For inquire now of the dayes that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man vpon the earth, and aske from the one ende of heauen vnto the other, if there came to passe such a great thing as this, or whether any such like thing hath bene heard.

05-4:33†††† Did euer people heare the voyce of God speaking out of the middes of a fire, as thou hast heard, and liued?

05-4:34†††† Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from among nations, by tentations, by signes, and by wonders, and by warre, and by a mightie hand, and by a stretched out arme, & by great feare, according vnto all that the Lord your God did vnto you in Egypt before your eyes?

05-4:35†††† Vnto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest knowe, that the Lorde hee is God, and that there is none but he alone.

05-4:36†††† Out of heauen hee made thee heare his voyce to instruct thee, and vpon earth he shewed thee his great fire, and thou heardest his voyce out of the middes of the fire.
