Chapter 10

Restoration of the tables.

10:1 At that time the LORD said to me, ya'll hew two tables of stone like to the first, and come up to me into the mount, and make ya'll an ark of wood.
10:2 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which you broke, and you will put them in the ark.
10:3 And I made an ark [of] shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like to the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand.
10:4 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake to you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly and the LORD gave them to me.
10:5 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made ; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me.
10:6 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of the children of Jaakan to Mosera there Aaron died, and there he was buried ; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his stead.
10:7 From there they journeyed to Gudgodah ; and from Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters.
10:8 At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister to him, and to bless in his name, to this day.
10:9 Wherefore Levi has no part nor inheritance with his brethren ; the LORD [is] his inheritance, according as the LORD your God promised him.
10:10 And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights ; and the LORD listened to me at that time also, [and] the LORD would not destroy ya'll .
10:11 And the LORD said to me, Arise, take [your] journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware to their fathers to give to them.

An exhortation by Moses

10:12 And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of ya'll , but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
10:13 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command ya'll this day for your good ?
10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens [is] the LORD'S your God, the earth [also], with all that therein [is].
10:15 Only the LORD had a delight in your fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, [even] you above all people, as [it is] this day.
10:16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.
10:17 For the LORD your God [is] God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regards not persons, nor takes reward
10:18 He does execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loves the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.
10:19 Love ya'll therefore the stranger for ya'll were strangers in the land of Egypt.
10:20 You will fear the LORD your God ; him will you serve, and to him will you cleave, and swear by his name.
10:21 He [is] your praise, and he [is] your God, that has done for ya'll these great and terrible things, which your eyes have seen.
10:22 Your fathers went down into Egypt with sixty and ten persons ; and now the LORD your God has made ya'll as the stars of heaven for multitude.
