10 At that time the Lord said unto me, aHew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and bmake thee an ark of wood. 2 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and cthou shalt put them in the ark. 3 And I made an ark of dshittim wood, and ehewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand. 4 And fhe wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten †commandments, gwhich the Lord spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire hin the day of the assembly: and the Lord gave them unto me. 5 And I turned myself and icame down from the mount, and kput the tables in the ark which I had made; land there they be, as the Lord commanded me. 6 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth mof the children of Jaakan to nMosera: othere Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest’s office in his stead. 7 pFrom thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters. 8 At that time qthe Lord separated the tribe of Levi, rto bear the ark of the covenant of the Lord, sto stand before the Lord to minister unto him, and tto bless in his name, unto this day. 9 uWherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren; the Lord is his inheritance, according as the Lord thy God promised him. 10 And xI stayed in the mount, according to the ||first time, forty days and forty nights; and ythe Lord hearkened unto me at that time also, and the Lord would not destroy thee. 11 zAnd the Lord said unto me, Arise, †take thy journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give unto them.
12 And now, Israel, awhat doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but bto fear the Lord thy God, cto walk in all his ways, and dto love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, 13 To keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day efor thy good? 14 Behold, fthe heaven and the heaven of heavens is the Lord’s thy God, gthe earth also, with all that therein is. 15 hOnly the Lord had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. 16 Circumcise therefore ithe foreskin of your heart, and be no more kstiffnecked. 17 For the Lord your God is lGod of gods, and mLord of lords, a ngreat God, a mighty, and na terrible, which oregardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: 18 pHe doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. 19 qLove ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20 rThou shalt fear the Lord thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou scleave, and rswear by his name. 21 tHe is thy praise, and he is thy God, uthat hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. 22 Thy fathers went down into Egypt xwith threescore and ten persons; and now the Lord thy God hath made thee yas the stars of heaven for multitude.
