Deuteronomy 4:15–25

15 “So awatch yourselves carefully, since you did not see any bform on the day the Lord spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire,

16 so that you do not aact corruptly and bmake a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

17 the likeness of any animal that is on the earth, the likeness of aany winged bird that flies in the sky,

18 the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water below the earth.

19 “And beware not to lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, aall the host of heaven, band be drawn away and worship them and serve them, those which the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven.

20 “But the Lord has taken you and brought you out of athe iron furnace, from Egypt, to bbe a people for His own possession, as today.

21 aNow the Lord was angry with me on your account, and swore that I would not cross the Jordan, and that I would not enter the good land which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance.

22 “For aI will die in this land, I shall not cross the Jordan, but you shall cross and take possession of this bgood land.

24 “For the Lord your God is a aconsuming fire, a bjealous God.

25 “When you 1become the father of children and children’s children and have remained long in the land, and aact corruptly, and bmake an 2idol in the form of anything, and cdo that which is evil in the sight of the Lord your God so as to provoke Him to anger,
