Chapter 27

The Curses of Mount Ebal

1 Then Moses and the elders of Israel charged the people, saying, “Keep all the commandments which I command you today.

2 “aSo it shall be on the day when you cross the Jordan to the land which the Lord your God gives you, that you shall set up for yourself large stones and coat them with lime

3 and write on them all the words of this law, when you cross over, so that you may enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, aa land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, 1promised you.

4 “So it shall be when you cross the Jordan, you shall set up aon Mount Ebal, these stones, 1as I am commanding you today, and you shall coat them with lime.

5 “Moreover, you shall build there an altar to the Lord your God, an altar of stones; you ashall not 1wield an iron tool on them.

6 “You shall build the altar of the Lord your God of 1uncut stones, and you shall offer on it burnt offerings to the Lord your God;

7 and you shall sacrifice peace offerings and eat there, and arejoice before the Lord your God.

8 “You shall write on the 1stones all the words of this law very distinctly.”

9 Then Moses and the Levitical priests spoke to all Israel, saying, “Be silent and listen, O Israel! This day you have become a people for the Lord your God.

10 “You shall therefore 1obey the Lord your God, and do His commandments and His statutes which I command you today.”

11 Moses also charged the people on that day, saying,

12 “When you cross the Jordan, these shall stand on aMount Gerizim to bless the people: bSimeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin.

13 “For the curse, these shall stand on Mount Ebal: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.

14 “The Levites shall then answer and say to all the men of Israel with a loud voice,

15 ‘Cursed is the man who makes 1aan idol or a molten image, an abomination to the Lord, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret.’ And ball the people shall answer and say, ‘Amen.’

16aCursed is he who dishonors his father or mother.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

17aCursed is he who moves his neighbor’s boundary mark.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

18aCursed is he who misleads a blind person on the road.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

19aCursed is he who distorts the justice due an alien, 1orphan, and widow.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

20aCursed is he who lies with his father’s wife, because he has uncovered his father’s skirt.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

21aCursed is he who lies with any animal.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

22aCursed is he who lies with his sister, the daughter of his father or of his mother.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

23aCursed is he who lies with his mother-in-law.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

24aCursed is he who strikes his neighbor in secret.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

25aCursed is he who accepts a bribe to strike down an innocent person.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

26aCursed is he who does not confirm the words of this law by doing them.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
