The Covenant Renewed in
1 These are the words of the covenant which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of
2 Now Moses called all Israel and said to them: a“You have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land
3 a“the great trials which your eyes have seen, the signs, and those great wonders.
4 “Yet athe LORD has not given you a heart to 1perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this very day.
5 a“And I have led you forty years in the wilderness. bYour clothes have not worn out on you, and your sandals have not worn out on your feet.
6 a“You have not eaten bread, nor have you drunk wine or similar drink, that you may know that I am the LORD your God.
7 “And when you came to this place, aSihon king of Heshbon and Og king of Bashan came out against us to battle, and we conquered them.
8 “We took their land and agave it as an inheritance to the Reubenites, to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh.
9 “Therefore akeep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may bprosper in all that you do.
10 “All of you stand today before the LORD your God: your leaders and your tribes and your elders and your officers, all the men of Israel,
11 “your little ones and your wives—also the stranger who is in your camp, from athe one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water—
12 “that you may enter into covenant with the LORD your God, and ainto His oath, which the LORD your God makes with you today,
13 “that He may aestablish you today as a people for Himself, and that He may be God to you, bjust as He has spoken to you, and cjust as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
14 “I make this covenant and this oath, anot with you alone,
15 “but with him who stands here with us today before the LORD our God, aas well as with him who is not here with us today
16 (for you know that we dwelt in the land of Egypt and that we came through the nations which you passed by,
17 and you saw their 1abominations and their idols which were among them—wood and stone and silver and gold);
18 “so that there may not be among you man or woman or family or tribe, awhose heart turns away today from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, band that there may not be among you a root bearing cbitterness or wormwood;
19 “and so it may not happen,when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, ‘I shall have peace, even though I 1follow the adictates of my heart’— bas though the drunkard could be included with the sober.
20 a“The LORD would not spare him; for then bthe anger of the LORD and cHis jealousy would burn against that man, and every curse that is written in this book would settle on him, and the LORD dwould blot out his name from under heaven.
21 “And the LORD awould separate him from all the tribes of Israel for adversity, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this Book of the bLaw,
22 “so that the coming generation of your children who rise up after you, and the foreigner who comes from a far land, would say, when they asee the plagues of that land and the sicknesses which the LORD has laid on it:
23 ‘The whole land is brimstone, asalt, and burning; it is not sown, nor does it bear, nor does any grass grow there, blike the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim,which the LORD overthrew in His anger and His wrath.’
24 “All nations would say, a‘Why has the LORD done so to this land? What does the heat of this great anger mean?’
25 “Then people would say: ‘Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt;
26 ‘for they went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods that they did not know and that He had not given to them.
27 ‘Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against this land, ato bring on it every curse that is written in this book.

A Calm Resolve to Wait for the Salvation of God
To the Chief Musician. To aJeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1 TRULY amy soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my 1defense; I shall not be greatly amoved.2
3 How long will you attack a man? You shall be slain, all of you, aLike a leaning wall and a tottering fence.
4 They only consult to cast him down from his high position; They adelight in lies; They bless with their mouth, But they curse inwardly. Selah
5 My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my 1expectation is from Him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be 1moved.
