3 For I proclaim the aname of the LORD: bAscribe greatness to our God.
4 He is athe Rock, bHis work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, cA God of truth and dwithout injustice; Righteous and upright is He.

5 “Theya have corrupted themselves; They are not His children, Because of their blemish: A bperverse and crooked generation.
6 Do you thus adeal1 with the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not byour Father, who cbought you? Has He not dmade you and established you?

7 “Remembera the days of old, Consider the years of many generations. bAsk your father, and he will show you; Your elders, and they will tell you:
8 When the Most High adivided their inheritance to the nations, When He bseparated the sons of Adam, He set the boundaries of the peoples According to the number of the 1children of Israel.
9 For athe LORD’s portion is His people; Jacob is the place of His inheritance.

10 “He found him ain a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He bkept him as the 1apple of His eye.
11 aAs an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings,
12 So the LORD alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.

13 “Hea made him ride in the heights of the earth, That he might eat the produce of the fields; He made him draw honey from the rock,

page 187

And oil from the flinty rock;
14 Curds from the cattle, and milk of the flock, aWith fat of lambs; And rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the choicest wheat; And you drank wine, the bblood of the grapes.

15 “But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; aYou grew fat, you grew thick, You are obese! Then he bforsook God who cmade him, And scornfully esteemed the dRock of his salvation.
16 aThey provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods; With 1abominations they provoked Him to anger.
17 aThey sacrificed to demons, not to God, To gods they did not know, To new gods, new arrivals That your fathers did not fear.
18 aOf the Rock who begot you, you are unmindful, And have bforgotten the God who fathered you.

19 “Anda when the LORD saw it, He spurned them, Because of the provocation of His sons and His daughters.
20 And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, For they are a perverse generation, aChildren in whom is no faith.
21 aThey have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; They have moved Me to anger bby their 1foolish idols. But cI will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation; I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.
22 For aa fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the 1lowest 2hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

23 ‘I will aheap disasters on them; bI will spend My arrows on them.
24 They shall be wasted with hunger, Devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction; I will also send against them the ateeth of beasts, With the poison of serpents of the dust.

25 The sword shall destroy outside; There shall be terror within For the young man and virgin, The nursing child with the man of gray hairs.
26 aI would have said, “I will dash them in pieces, I will make the memory of them to cease from among men,”
27 Had I not feared the wrath of the enemy, Lest their adversaries should misunderstand, Lest they should say, a“Our hand is high; And it is not the LORD who has done all this.” ’

28 “For they are a nation void of counsel, Nor is there any understanding in them.
29 aOh, that they were wise, that they understood this, That they would consider their blatter end!
30 How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock ahad sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them?
31 For their rock is not like our Rock, aEven our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For atheir vine is of the vine of Sodom And of the fields of Gomorrah; Their grapes are grapes of gall, Their clusters are bitter.
33 Their wine is athe poison of serpents, And the cruel bvenom of cobras.

34 ‘Is this not alaid up in store with Me, Sealed up among My treasures?
35 aVengeance is Mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; bFor the day of their calamity is at hand, And the things to come hasten upon them.’

36 “Fora the LORD will judge His people bAnd have compassion on His servants, When He sees that their power is gone, And cthere is no one remaining, bond or free.
37 He will say: a‘Where are their gods, The rock in which they sought refuge?

page 188


38 Who ate the fat of their sacrifices, And drank the wine of their drink offering? Let them rise and help you, And be your refuge.

39 ‘Now see that aI, even I, am He, And bthere is no God besides Me; cI kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand.
40 For I raise My hand to heaven, And say, “As I live forever,
41 aIf I 1whet My glittering sword, And My hand takes hold on judgment, I will render vengeance to My enemies, And repay those who hate Me.
42 I will make My arrows drunk with blood, And My sword shall devour flesh, With the blood of the slain and the captives, From the heads of the leaders of the enemy.” ’

43 “Rejoice,a O Gentiles, with His 1people; For He will bavenge the blood of His servants, And render vengeance to His adversaries; He cwill provide atonement for His land and His people.”

44 So Moses came with 1Joshua the son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people.
45 Moses finished speaking all these words to all Israel,
46 and he said to them: a“Set your hearts on all the words which I testify among you today, which you shall command your bchildren to be careful to observe—all the words of this law.
47 “For it is not a 1futile thing for you, because it is your alife, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess.”

Moses to Die on Mount Nebo

48 Then the LORD spoke to Moses that very same day, saying:
49 a“Go up this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, across from Jericho; view the land of Canaan, which I give to the children of Israel as a possession;
50 “and die on the mountain which you ascend, and be 1gathered to your people, just as aAaron your brother died on Mount Hor and was gathered to his people;
51 “because ayou trespassed against Me among the children of Israel at

Moses’ Final Blessing on Israel


1 Now this is athe blessing with which Moses bthe man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.
2 And he said:

a“The LORD came from Sinai, And dawned on them from bSeir; He shone forth from cMount Paran, And He came with dten thousands of saints; From His right hand Came a fiery law for them.
3 Yes, aHe loves the people; bAll His saints are in Your hand; They csit down at Your feet; Everyone dreceives Your words.
4 aMoses 1commanded a law for us, bA heritage of the congregation of Jacob.
5 And He was aKing in bJeshurun, When the leaders of the people were gathered, All the tribes of Israel together.

6 “Let aReuben live, and not die, Nor let his men be few.”

7 And this he said of aJudah:

“Hear, LORD, the voice of Judah, And bring him to his people; bLet his hands be sufficient for him, And may You be ca help against his enemies.”

8 And of aLevi he said:

b“Let Your 1Thummim and Your Urim be with Your holy one, cWhom You tested at Massah, And with whom You contended at the waters of Meribah,
9 aWho says of his father and mother, ‘‘I have not bseen them’; cNor did he acknowledge his brothers, Or know his own children; For dthey have observed Your word And kept Your covenant.
10 aThey shall teach Jacob Your judgments, And Israel Your law. They shall put incense before You, bAnd a whole burnt sacrifice on Your altar.

page 189

11 Bless his substance, LORD, And aaccept the work of his hands; Strike the loins of those who rise against him, And of those who hate him, that they rise not again.”

12 Of Benjamin he said:

“The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by Him, Who shelters him all the day long; And he shall dwell between His shoulders.”

13 And of Joseph he said:

a“Blessed of the LORD is his land, With the precious things of heaven, with the bdew, And the deep lying beneath,
14 With the precious fruits of the sun, With the precious produce of the months,
15 With the best things of athe ancient mountains, With the precious things bof the everlasting hills,
16 With the precious things of the earth and its fullness, And the favor of aHim who dwelt in the bush. Let the blessing come b‘on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.’
17 His glory is like a afirstborn bull, And his horns like the bhorns of the wild ox; Together with them cHe shall push the peoples To the ends of the earth; dThey are the ten thousands of Ephraim, And they are the thousands of Manasseh.”

18 And of Zebulun he said:

a“Rejoice, Zebulun, in your going out, And Issachar in your tents!
19 They shall acall the peoples to the mountain; There bthey shall offer sacrifices of righteousness; For they shall partake of the abundance of the seas And of treasures hidden in the sand.”

20 And of Gad he said:

“Blessed is he who aenlarges Gad; He dwells as a lion, And tears the arm and the crown of his head.

Because a lawgiver’s portion was reserved there. bHe came with the heads of the people; He administered the justice of the LORD, And His judgments with Israel.”

“Dan is a lion’s whelp; aHe shall leap from Bashan.”

23 And of Naphtali he said:

“O Naphtali, asatisfied with favor, And full of the blessing of the LORD, bPossess the west and the south.”

Moses Dies on Mount Nebo


1 Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab ato Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is across from Jericho. And the LORD showed him all the land of Gilead as far as Dan,
2 all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the 1Western Sea,
3 the South, and the plain of the

4 Then the LORD said to him, a“This is the land of which I swore to give Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ bI have caused you to see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there.”
5 aSo Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.
6 And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but ano one knows his grave to this day.

Oppressed by the Wicked but Rejoicing in the LORD

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1 HEAR my voice, O God, in my 1meditation; Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity,
3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword, aAnd bend their bows to shoot their arrows—bitter words,
4 That they may shoot in secret at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.

5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter; They talk of laying snares secretly; aThey say, “Who will see them?”
