Deuteronomy 4:14–24

14 And sthe Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it. 15 tTake ye therefore good heed unto tyourselves; for ye saw no manner of usimilitude on the day that the Lord spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: 16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and xmake you a graven image, the similitude of any yfigure, zthe likeness of male or female, 17 The zlikeness of any beast that is on the earth, the zlikeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air, 18 The zlikeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the zlikeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth: 19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest athe sun, and the moon, and the stars, even ball the host of heaven, cshouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord thy God hath ||divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. 20 But the Lord hath taken you, and brought you forth dout of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people eof inheritance, as ye are this day. 21 Furthermore fthe Lord was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance: 22 But gI must die in this land, hI must not go over Jordan: but ye shall go over, and possess ithat good land. 23 kTake heed unto yourselves, klest ye forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which he made with you, land make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee. 24 For mthe Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even na jealous God.
