Song of Moses
32:1 Give ear, O ya'll heavens, and I
will speak ; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the
dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers
upon the grass
32:3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD
ascribe ya'll greatness to our God.
32:4 [He is] the Rock, his
work [is] perfect for all his ways [are] judgment a God of truth
and without iniquity, just and right [is] he.
32:5 They have
corrupted themselves, their spot [is] not [the spot] of his
children [they are] a perverse and crooked generation.
32:6 Do ya'll
thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? [is] not he
your father [that] has bought ya'll ? has he not made ya'll , and
established ya'll ?
32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the
years of many generations ask your father, and he will show ya'll ;
your elders, and they will tell ya'll .
32:8 When the most High
divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the
sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the
number of the children of Israel.
32:9 For the LORD'S portion
[is] his people ; Jacob [is] the lot of his inheritance.
found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness ;
he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of
32:11 As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over
her young, spreads abroad her wings, takes them, bears them
on her wings
32:12 [So ] the LORD alone did lead him, and [there
was] no strange god with him.
32:13 He made him ride on the high
places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields
; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of
the flinty rock ;
32:14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with
fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with
the fat of kidneys of wheat ; and you did drink the pure blood
of the grape.
32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked you are
waxen fat, you are grown thick, you are covered [with fatness];
then he forsook God [which] made him, and lightly esteemed the
Rock of his salvation.
32:16 They provoked him to jealousy with
strange [gods], with abominations provoked they him to anger.
32:17 They sacrificed to devils, not to God ; to gods whom they
knew not, to new [gods that] came newly up, whom your fathers
32:18 Of the Rock [that] begat ya'll you are
unmindful, and have forgotten God that formed ya'll .
when the LORD saw [it], he abhorred [them], because of the
provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
32:20 And he said, I
will hide my face from them, I will see what their end [shall be]
for they [are] a very froward generation, children in whom [is]
32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with [that which
is] not God ; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities
and I will move them to jealousy with [those which are] not a
people ; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
32:22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase,
and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
32:23 I will
heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
32:24 [They shall be] burnt with hunger, and devoured with
burning heat, and with bitter destruction I will also send the
teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the
32:25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy
both the young man and the virgin, the suckling [also] with the
man of gray hairs.
32:26 I said, I would scatter them into
corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among
32:27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, unless
their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, [and] unless
they should say, Our hand [is] high, and the LORD has not done
32:28 For they [are] a nation void of counsel, neither
[is there any] understanding in them.
32:29 O that they were
wise, [that] they understood this, [that] they would consider
their latter end!
32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two
put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and
the LORD had shut them up?
32:31 For their rock [is] not as our
Rock, even our enemies themselves [being] judges.
32:32 For their
vine [is] of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah
their grapes [are] grapes of gall, their clusters [are] bitter
32:33 Their wine [is] the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom
32:34 [Is] not this laid up in store with me, [and]
sealed up among my treasures ?
32:35 To me [belongs] vengeance,
and recompence ; their foot shall slide in [due] time for the day
of their calamity [is] at hand, and the things that shall come
upon them make haste.
32:36 For the LORD shall judge his people,
and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that [their]
power is gone, and [there is] none shut up, or left.
32:37 And he
shall say, Where [are] their gods, [their] rock in whom they
32:38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, [and]
drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and
help you, [and] be your protection.
32:39See now that I, [even]
I, [am] he, and [there is] no god with me I kill, and I make
alive ; I wound, and I heal neither [is there any] that can
deliver out of my hand.
32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven,
and say, I live for ever.
32:41 If I sharpen my glittering sword,
and mine hand take hold on judgment ; I will render vengeance to
mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
32:42 I will
make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour
flesh ; [and that] with the blood of the slain and of the
captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
Rejoice, O ya'll nations, [with] his people for he will avenge the
blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his
adversaries, and will be merciful to his land, [and] to his
32:44 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song
in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.
And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel
32:46 And he said to them, Set your hearts to all the words
which I testify among you this day, which ya'll shall command your
children to observe to do, all the words of this law.
32:47 For it [is] not a vain thing for you; because it [is] your life and
through this thing ya'll shall prolong [your] days in the land,
whither ya'll go over Jordan to possess it.
Moses ordered to Nebo to die
32:48 And the LORD spake to Moses that selfsame day, saying,
32:49 Get ya'll up into this
mountain Abarim, [unto] mount Nebo, which [is] in the land of
Moab, that [is] over against Jericho ; and behold the land of
Canaan, which I give to the children of Israel for a possession
32:50 And die in the mount whither you go up, and be gathered to your people ; as Aaron your brother died in mount Hor, and was
gathered to his people
32:51 Because ya'll trespassed against me
among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribahkadesh, in
the wilderness of Zin ; because ya'll sanctified me not in the midst
of the children of Israel.
32:52 Yet you will see the land
before [ ya'll ]; but you will not go there to the land which
I give the children of Israel.
