Deuteronomy 1


1  These428 be the words1697 which834 Moses4872 spoke1696 unto413 all3605 Israel3478 on this side5676 Jordan3383 in the wilderness,4057 in the plain6160 over against4136 the Red5489 sea, between996 Paran,6290 and Tophel,8603 and Laban,3837 and Hazeroth,2698 and Dizahab.1774

2  (There are eleven259 6240 days3117 journey from Horeb4480 2722 by the way1870 of mount2022 Seir8165 unto5704 Kadesh-barnea.)6947

3  And it came to pass1961 in the fortieth705 year,8141 in the eleventh6249 6240 month,2320 on the first259 day of the month,2320 that Moses4872 spoke1696 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 according unto all3605 that834 the LORD3068 had given him in commandment6680 853 unto413 them;

4  After310 he had slain5221 853 Sihon5511 the king4428 of the Amorites,567 which834 dwelt3427 in Heshbon,2809 and Og5747 the king4428 of Bashan,1316 which834 dwelt3427 at Astaroth6252 in Edrei:154

5  On this side5676 Jordan,3383 in the land776 of Moab,4124 began2974 Moses4872 to declare874 853 this2063 law,8451 saying,559

6  The LORD3068 our God430 spoke1696 unto413 us in Horeb,2722 saying,559 Ye have dwelt3427 long enough7227 in this2088 mount:2022

7  Turn6437 you, and take your journey,5265 and go935 to the mount2022 of the Amorites,567 and unto413 all3605 the places nigh7934 thereunto, in the plain,6160 in the hills,2022 and in the vale,8219 and in the south,5045 and by the sea3220 side,2348 to the land776 of the Canaanites,3669 and unto Lebanon,3844 unto5704 the great1419 river,5104 the river5104 Euphrates.6578

8  Behold,7200 I have set5414 853 the land776 before6440 you: go in935 and possess3423 853 the land776 which834 the LORD3068 swore7650 unto your fathers,1 Abraham,85 Isaac,3327 and Jacob,3290 to give5414 unto them and to their seed2233 after310 them.

9  And I spoke559 unto413 you at that1931 time,6256 saying,559 I am not able3201 3808 to bear5375 you myself alone:905

10  The LORD3068 your God430 hath multiplied7235 you, and, behold,2009 ye are this day3117 as the stars3556 of heaven8064 for multitude.7230

11  (The LORD3068 God430 of your fathers1 make you a thousand505 times6471 so many more3254 as ye are, and bless1288 you, as834 he hath promised1696 you!)

12  How349 can I myself alone905 bear5375 your encumbrance,2960 and your burden,4853 and your strife?7379

13  Take3051 you wise2450 men,376 and understanding,995 and known3045 among your tribes,7626 and I will make7760 them rulers7218 over you.

14  And ye answered6030 me, and said,559 The thing1697 which834 thou hast spoken1696 is good2896 for us to do.6213

15  So I took3947 853 the chief7218 of your tribes,7626 wise2450 men,376 and known,3045 and made5414 them heads7218 over5921 you, captains8269 over thousands,505 and captains8269 over hundreds,3967 and captains8269 over fifties,2572 and captains8269 over tens,6235 and officers7860 among your tribes.7626

16  And I charged6680 853 your judges8199 at that1931 time,6256 saying,559 Hear8085 the causes between996 your brethren,251 and judge8199 righteously6664 between996 every man376 and his brother,251 and the stranger1616 that is with him.

17  Ye shall not3808 respect5234 persons6440 in judgment;4941 but ye shall hear8085 the small6996 as well as the great;1419 ye shall not3808 be afraid1481 of the face4480 6440 of man;376 for3588 the judgment4941 is God's:430 and the cause1697 that834 is too hard7185 for4480 you, bring7126 it unto413 me, and I will hear8085 it.

18  And I commanded6680 you at that1931 time6256 853 all3605 the things1697 which834 ye should do.6213

19  And when we departed5265 from Horeb,4480 2722 we went through1980 853 all3605 that1931 great1419 and terrible3372 wilderness,4057 which834 ye saw7200 by the way1870 of the mountain2022 of the Amorites,567 as834 the LORD3068 our God430 commanded6680 us; and we came935 to5704 Kadesh-barnea.6947

20  And I said559 unto413 you, Ye are come935 unto5704 the mountain2022 of the Amorites,567 which834 the LORD3068 our God430 doth give5414 unto us.

21  Behold,7200 the LORD3068 thy God430 hath set5414 853 the land776 before6440 thee: go up5927 and possess3423 it, as834 the LORD3068 God430 of thy fathers1 hath said1696 unto thee; fear3372 not,408 neither408 be discouraged.2865

22  And ye came near7126 unto413 me every one3605 of you, and said,559 We will send7971 men376 before6440 us, and they shall search us out2658 853 the land,776 and bring7725 us word1697 again 853 by what834 way1870 we must go up,5927 and853 into413 what834 cities5892 we shall come.935

23  And the saying1697 pleased me well:3190 5869 and I took3947 twelve8147 6240 men376 of4480 you, one259 of a tribe:7626

24  And they turned6437 and went up5927 into the mountain,2022 and came935 unto5704 the valley5158 of Eshcol,812 and searched it out.7270 853

25  And they took3947 of the fruit4480 6529 of the land776 in their hands,3027 and brought it down3381 unto413 us, and brought7725 us word1697 again, and said,559 It is a good2896 land776 which834 the LORD3068 our God430 doth give5414 us.

26  Notwithstanding ye would14 not3808 go up,5927 but rebelled against4784 853 the commandment6310 of the LORD3068 your God:430

27  And ye murmured7279 in your tents,168 and said,559 Because the LORD3068 hated8135 us, he hath brought us forth3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 to deliver5414 us into the hand3027 of the Amorites,567 to destroy8045 us.

28  Whither575 shall we587 go up?5927 our brethren251 have discouraged4549 853 our heart,3824 saying,559 The people5971 is greater1419 and taller7311 than4480 we; the cities5892 are great1419 and walled1219 up to heaven;8064 and moreover1571 we have seen7200 the sons1121 of the Anakims6062 there.8033

29  Then I said559 unto413 you, Dread6206 not,3808 neither3808 be afraid3372 of4480 them.

30  The LORD3068 your God430 which goeth1980 before6440 you, he1931 shall fight3898 for you, according to all3605 that834 he did6213 for854 you in Egypt4714 before your eyes;5869

31  And in the wilderness,4057 where834 thou hast seen7200 how that834 the LORD3068 thy God430 bore5375 thee, as834 a man376 doth bear5375 853 his son,1121 in all3605 the way1870 that834 ye went,1980 until5704 ye came935 into5704 this2088 place.4725

32  Yet in this2088 thing1697 ye did not369 believe539 the LORD3068 your God,430

33  Who went1980 in the way1870 before6440 you, to search you out8446 a place4725 to pitch your tents2583 in, in fire784 by night,3915 to show7200 you by what834 way1870 ye should go,1980 and in a cloud6051 by day.3119

34  And the LORD3068 heard8085 853 the voice6963 of your words,1697 and was wroth,7107 and swore,7650 saying,559

35  Surely518 there shall not one376 of these428 men376 of this2088 evil7451 generation1755 see7200 853 that good2896 land,776 which834 I swore7650 to give5414 unto your fathers,1

36  Save2108 Caleb3612 the son1121 of Jephunneh;3312 he1931 shall see7200 it, and to him will I give5414 853 the land776 that834 he hath trodden1869 upon, and to his children,1121 because3282 834 he hath wholly4390 followed310 the LORD.3068

37  Also1571 the LORD3068 was angry599 with me for your sakes,1558 saying,559 Thou859 also1571 shalt not3808 go in935 thither.8033

38  But Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun,5126 which standeth5975 before6440 thee, he1931 shall go in935 thither:8033 encourage2388 him: for3588 he1931 shall cause 853 Israel3478 to inherit5157 it.

39  Moreover your little ones,2945 which834 ye said559 should be1961 a prey,957 and your children,1121 which834 in that day3117 had no knowledge3045 3808 between good2896 and evil,7451 they1992 shall go in935 thither,8033 and unto them will I give5414 it, and they1992 shall possess3423 it.

40  But as for you,859 turn6437 you, and take your journey5265 into the wilderness4057 by the way1870 of the Red5488 sea.3220

41  Then ye answered6030 and said559 unto413 me, We have sinned2398 against the LORD,3068 we587 will go up5927 and fight,3898 according to all3605 that834 the LORD3068 our God430 commanded6680 us. And when ye had girded on2296 every man376 853 his weapons3627 of war,4421 ye were ready1951 to go up5927 into the hill.2022

42  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 me, Say559 unto them, Go not up,5927 3808 neither3808 fight;3898 for3588 I am not369 among7130 you; lest3808 ye be smitten5062 before6440 your enemies.341

43  So I spoke1696 unto413 you; and ye would not3808 hear,8085 but rebelled against4784 853 the commandment6310 of the LORD,3068 and went presumptuously up5927 2102 into the hill.2022

44  And the Amorites,567 which dwelt3427 in that1931 mountain,2022 came out3318 against7125 you, and chased7291 you, as834 bees1682 do,6213 and destroyed3807 you in Seir,8165 even unto5704 Hormah.2767

45  And ye returned7725 and wept1058 before6440 the LORD;3068 but the LORD3068 would not3808 hearken8085 to your voice,6963 nor3808 give ear238 unto413 you.

46  So ye abode3427 in Kadesh6946 many7227 days,3117 according unto the days3117 that834 ye abode3427 there.


1 οὗτοι οἱ λόγοι οὓς ἐλάλησεν Μωυσῆς παντὶ Ισραηλ πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ πρὸς δυσμαῖς πλησίον τῆς ἐρυθρᾶς ἀνὰ μέσον Φαραν Τοφολ καὶ Λοβον καὶ Αυλων καὶ καταχρύσεα

2 ἕνδεκα ἡμερῶν ἐν Χωρηβ ὁδὸς ἐπ᾽ ὄρος Σηιρ ἕως Καδης Βαρνη

3 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ τεσσαρακοστῷ ἔτει ἐν τῷ ἑνδεκάτῳ μηνὶ μιᾷ τοῦ μηνὸς ἐλάλησεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς πάντας υἱοὺς Ισραηλ κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐνετείλατο κύριος αὐτῷ πρὸς αὐτούς

4 μετὰ τὸ πατάξαι Σηων βασιλέα Αμορραίων τὸν κατοικήσαντα ἐν Εσεβων καὶ Ωγ βασιλέα τῆς Βασαν τὸν κατοικήσαντα ἐν Ασταρωθ καὶ ἐν Εδραϊν

5 ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦ Ιορδάνου ἐν γῇ Μωαβ ἤρξατο Μωυσῆς διασαφῆσαι τὸν νόμον τοῦτον λέγων

6 κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐλάλησεν ἡμῖν ἐν Χωρηβ λέγων ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν κατοικεῖν ἐν τῷ ὄρει τούτῳ

7 ἐπιστράφητε καὶ ἀπάρατε ὑμεῖς καὶ εἰσπορεύεσθε εἰς ὄρος Αμορραίων καὶ πρὸς πάντας τοὺς περιοίκους Αραβα εἰς ὄρος καὶ πεδίον καὶ πρὸς λίβα καὶ παραλίαν γῆν Χαναναίων καὶ Ἀντιλίβανον ἕως τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ μεγάλου Εὐφράτου

8 ἴδετε παραδέδωκα ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν τὴν γῆν εἰσπορευθέντες κληρονομήσατε τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν τῷ Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ιακωβ δοῦναι αὐτοῖς καὶ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτῶν μετ᾽ αὐτούς

9 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων οὐ δυνήσομαι μόνος φέρειν ὑμᾶς

10 κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ἐπλήθυνεν ὑμᾶς καὶ ἰδού ἐστε σήμερον ὡσεὶ τὰ ἄστρα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τῷ πλήθει

11 κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν προσθείη ὑμῖν ὡς ἐστὲ χιλιοπλασίως καὶ εὐλογήσαι ὑμᾶς καθότι ἐλάλησεν ὑμῖν

12 πῶς δυνήσομαι μόνος φέρειν τὸν κόπον ὑμῶν καὶ τὴν ὑπόστασιν ὑμῶν καὶ τὰς ἀντιλογίας ὑμῶν

13 δότε ἑαυτοῖς ἄνδρας σοφοὺς καὶ ἐπιστήμονας καὶ συνετοὺς εἰς τὰς φυλὰς ὑμῶν καὶ καταστήσω ἐφ᾽ ὑμῶν ἡγουμένους ὑμῶν

14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθητέ μοι καὶ εἴπατε καλὸν τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησας ποιῆσαι

15 καὶ ἔλαβον ἐξ ὑμῶν ἄνδρας σοφοὺς καὶ ἐπιστήμονας καὶ συνετοὺς καὶ κατέστησα αὐτοὺς ἡγεῖσθαι ἐφ᾽ ὑμῶν χιλιάρχους καὶ ἑκατοντάρχους καὶ πεντηκοντάρχους καὶ δεκαδάρχους καὶ γραμματοεισαγωγεῖς τοῖς κριταῖς ὑμῶν

16 καὶ ἐνετειλάμην τοῖς κριταῖς ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ λέγων διακούετε ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν καὶ κρίνατε δικαίως ἀνὰ μέσον ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον ἀδελφοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον προσηλύτου αὐτοῦ

17 οὐκ ἐπιγνώσῃ πρόσωπον ἐν κρίσει κατὰ τὸν μικρὸν καὶ κατὰ τὸν μέγαν κρινεῖς οὐ μὴ ὑποστείλῃ πρόσωπον ἀνθρώπου ὅτι ἡ κρίσις τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστιν καὶ τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐὰν σκληρὸν ᾖ ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν ἀνοίσετε αὐτὸ ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ καὶ ἀκούσομαι αὐτό

18 καὶ ἐνετειλάμην ὑμῖν ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ πάντας τοὺς λόγους οὓς ποιήσετε

19 καὶ ἀπάραντες ἐκ Χωρηβ ἐπορεύθημεν πᾶσαν τὴν ἔρημον τὴν μεγάλην καὶ τὴν φοβερὰν ἐκείνην ἣν εἴδετε ὁδὸν ὄρους τοῦ Αμορραίου καθότι ἐνετείλατο κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἡμῖν καὶ ἤλθομεν ἕως Καδης Βαρνη

20 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἤλθατε ἕως τοῦ ὄρους τοῦ Αμορραίου ὃ ὁ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν ὑμῖν

21 ἴδετε παραδέδωκεν ὑμῖν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν πρὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν τὴν γῆν ἀναβάντες κληρονομήσατε ὃν τρόπον εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν ὑμῖν μὴ φοβεῖσθε μηδὲ δειλιάσητε

22 καὶ προσήλθατέ μοι πάντες καὶ εἴπατε ἀποστείλωμεν ἄνδρας προτέρους ἡμῶν καὶ ἐφοδευσάτωσαν ἡμῖν τὴν γῆν καὶ ἀναγγειλάτωσαν ἡμῖν ἀπόκρισιν τὴν ὁδόν δι᾽ ἧς ἀναβησόμεθα ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ τὰς πόλεις εἰς ἃς εἰσπορευσόμεθα εἰς αὐτάς

23 καὶ ἤρεσεν ἐναντίον μου τὸ ῥῆμα καὶ ἔλαβον ἐξ ὑμῶν δώδεκα ἄνδρας ἄνδρα ἕνα κατὰ φυλήν

24 καὶ ἐπιστραφέντες ἀνέβησαν εἰς τὸ ὄρος καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἕως Φάραγγος βότρυος καὶ κατεσκόπευσαν αὐτήν

25 καὶ ἐλάβοσαν ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ καρποῦ τῆς γῆς καὶ κατήνεγκαν πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ ἔλεγον ἀγαθὴ ἡ γῆ ἣν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν δίδωσιν ἡμῖν

26 καὶ οὐκ ἠθελήσατε ἀναβῆναι καὶ ἠπειθήσατε τῷ ῥήματι κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ὑμῶν

27 καὶ διεγογγύζετε ἐν ταῖς σκηναῖς ὑμῶν καὶ εἴπατε διὰ τὸ μισεῖν κύριον ἡμᾶς ἐξήγαγεν ἡμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου παραδοῦναι ἡμᾶς εἰς χεῖρας Αμορραίων ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ἡμᾶς

28 ποῦ ἡμεῖς ἀναβαίνομεν οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ὑμῶν ἀπέστησαν ὑμῶν τὴν καρδίαν λέγοντες ἔθνος μέγα καὶ πολὺ καὶ δυνατώτερον ἡμῶν καὶ πόλεις μεγάλαι καὶ τετειχισμέναι ἕως τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἀλλὰ καὶ υἱοὺς γιγάντων ἑωράκαμεν ἐκεῖ

29 καὶ εἶπα πρὸς ὑμᾶς μὴ πτήξητε μηδὲ φοβηθῆτε ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν

30 κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν ὁ προπορευόμενος πρὸ προσώπου ὑμῶν αὐτὸς συνεκπολεμήσει αὐτοὺς μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν ὑμῖν ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ

31 καὶ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ταύτῃ ἣν εἴδετε ὡς ἐτροφοφόρησέν σε κύριος ὁ θεός σου ὡς εἴ τις τροφοφορήσει ἄνθρωπος τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν ὁδόν ἣν ἐπορεύθητε ἕως ἤλθετε εἰς τὸν τόπον τοῦτον

32 καὶ ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ οὐκ ἐνεπιστεύσατε κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ ὑμῶν

33 ὃς προπορεύεται πρότερος ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ἐκλέγεσθαι ὑμῖν τόπον ὁδηγῶν ὑμᾶς ἐν πυρὶ νυκτὸς δεικνύων ὑμῖν τὴν ὁδόν καθ᾽ ἣν πορεύεσθε ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐν νεφέλῃ ἡμέρας

34 καὶ ἤκουσεν κύριος τὴν φωνὴν τῶν λόγων ὑμῶν καὶ παροξυνθεὶς ὤμοσεν λέγων

35 εἰ ὄψεταί τις τῶν ἀνδρῶν τούτων τὴν ἀγαθὴν ταύτην γῆν ἣν ὤμοσα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν

36 πλὴν Χαλεβ υἱὸς Ιεφοννη οὗτος ὄψεται αὐτήν καὶ τούτῳ δώσω τὴν γῆν ἐφ᾽ ἣν ἐπέβη καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ διὰ τὸ προσκεῖσθαι αὐτὸν τὰ πρὸς κύριον

37 καὶ ἐμοὶ ἐθυμώθη κύριος δι᾽ ὑμᾶς λέγων οὐδὲ σὺ οὐ μὴ εἰσέλθῃς ἐκεῖ

38 Ἰησοῦς υἱὸς Ναυη ὁ παρεστηκώς σοι οὗτος εἰσελεύσεται ἐκεῖ αὐτὸν κατίσχυσον ὅτι αὐτὸς κατακληρονομήσει αὐτὴν τῷ Ισραηλ

39 καὶ πᾶν παιδίον νέον ὅστις οὐκ οἶδεν σήμερον ἀγαθὸν ἢ κακόν οὗτοι εἰσελεύσονται ἐκεῖ καὶ τούτοις δώσω αὐτήν καὶ αὐτοὶ κληρονομήσουσιν αὐτήν

40 καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐπιστραφέντες ἐστρατοπεδεύσατε εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ὁδὸν τὴν ἐπὶ τῆς ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης

41 καὶ ἀπεκρίθητέ μοι καὶ εἴπατε ἡμάρτομεν ἔναντι κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἡμεῖς ἀναβάντες πολεμήσομεν κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐνετείλατο κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἡμῖν καὶ ἀναλαβόντες ἕκαστος τὰ σκεύη τὰ πολεμικὰ αὐτοῦ καὶ συναθροισθέντες ἀνεβαίνετε εἰς τὸ ὄρος

42 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρός με εἰπὸν αὐτοῖς οὐκ ἀναβήσεσθε οὐδὲ μὴ πολεμήσετε οὐ γάρ εἰμι μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν καὶ οὐ μὴ συντριβῆτε ἐνώπιον τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὑμῶν

43 καὶ ἐλάλησα ὑμῖν καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατέ μου καὶ παρέβητε τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου καὶ παραβιασάμενοι ἀνέβητε εἰς τὸ ὄρος

44 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ Αμορραῖος ὁ κατοικῶν ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἐκείνῳ εἰς συνάντησιν ὑμῖν καὶ κατεδίωξαν ὑμᾶς ὡς εἰ ποιήσαισαν αἱ μέλισσαι καὶ ἐτίτρωσκον ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ Σηιρ ἕως Ερμα

45 καὶ καθίσαντες ἐκλαίετε ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσεν κύριος τῆς φωνῆς ὑμῶν οὐδὲ προσέσχεν ὑμῖν

46 καὶ ἐνεκάθησθε ἐν Καδης ἡμέρας πολλάς ὅσας ποτὲ ἡμέρας ἐνεκάθησθε

1 Hæc sunt verba quæ locutus est Moyses ad omnem Israël trans Jordanem in solitudine campestri, contra mare Rubrum, inter Pharan et Tophel et Laban et Haseroth, ubi auri est plurimum:

2 undecim diebus de Horeb per viam montis Seir usque ad Cadesbarne.

3 Quadragesimo anno, undecimo mense, prima die mensis, locutus est Moyses ad filios Israël omnia quæ præceperat illi Dominus, ut diceret eis,

4 postquam percussit Sehon regem Amorrhæorum, qui habitabat in Hesebon, et Og regem Basan, qui mansit in Astaroth, et in Edrai,

5 trans Jordanem in terra Moab. Cœpitque Moyses explanare legem, et dicere:

6 Dominus Deus noster locutus est ad nos in Horeb, dicens: Sufficit vobis quod in hoc monte mansistis:

7 revertimini, et venite ad montem Amorrhæorum, et ad cetera quæ ei proxima sunt campestria atque montana et humiliora loca contra meridiem, et juxta littus maris, terram Chananæorum, et Libani usque ad flumen magnum Euphraten.

8 En, inquit, tradidi vobis: ingredimini et possidete eam, super qua juravit Dominus patribus vestris Abraham, Isaac, et Jacob, ut daret illam eis, et semini eorum post eos.

9 Dixique vobis illo in tempore:

10 Non possum solus sustinere vos: quia Dominus Deus vester multiplicavit vos, et estis hodie sicut stellæ cæli, plurimi.

11 (Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum addat ad hunc numerum multa millia, et benedicat vobis sicut locutus est.)

12 Non valeo solus negotia vestra sustinere, et pondus ac jurgia.

13 Date ex vobis viros sapientes et gnaros, et quorum conversatio sit probata in tribubus vestris, ut ponam eos vobis principes.

14 Tunc respondistis mihi: Bona res est, quam vis facere.

15 Tulique de tribubus vestris viros sapientes et nobiles, et constitui eos principes, tribunos, et centuriones, et quinquagenarios ac decanos, qui docerent vos singula.

16 Præcepique eis, dicens: Audite illos, et quod justum est judicate: sive civis sit ille, sive peregrinus.

17 Nulla erit distantia personarum: ita parvum audietis ut magnum, nec accipietis cujusquam personam, quia Dei judicium est. Quod si difficile vobis visum aliquid fuerit, referte ad me, et ego audiam.

18 Præcepique omnia quæ facere deberetis.

19 Profecti autem de Horeb, transivimus per eremum terribilem et maximam, quam vidistis, per viam montis Amorrhæi, sicut præceperat Dominus Deus noster nobis. Cumque venissemus in Cadesbarne,

20 dixi vobis: Venistis ad montem Amorrhæi, quem Dominus Deus noster daturus est nobis:

21 vide terram, quam Dominus Deus tuus dat tibi: ascende et posside eam, sicut locutus est Dominus Deus noster patribus tuis: noli timere, nec quidquam paveas.

22 Et accessistis ad me omnes, atque dixistis: Mittamus viros qui considerent terram: et renuntient per quod iter debeamus ascendere, et ad quas pergere civitates.

23 Cumque mihi sermo placuisset, misi ex vobis duodecim viros, singulos de tribubus suis.

24 Qui cum perrexissent, et ascendissent in montana, venerunt usque ad Vallem botri: et considerata terra,

25 sumentes de fructibus ejus, ut ostenderent ubertatem, attulerunt ad nos, atque dixerunt: Bona est terra, quam Dominus Deus noster daturus est nobis.

26 Et noluistis ascendere, sed increduli ad sermonem Domini Dei nostri,

27 murmurastis in tabernaculis vestris, atque dixistis: Odit nos Dominus, et idcirco eduxit nos de terra Ægypti, ut traderet nos in manu Amorrhæi, atque deleret.

28 Quo ascendemus? nuntii terruerunt cor nostrum, dicentes: Maxima multitudo est, et nobis statura procerior; urbes magnæ, et ad cælum usque munitæ: filios Enacim vidimus ibi.

29 Et dixi vobis: Nolite metuere, nec timeatis eos:

30 Dominus Deus, qui ductor est vester, pro vobis ipse pugnabit, sicut fecit in Ægypto cunctis videntibus.

31 Et in solitudine (ipse vidisti) portavit te Dominus Deus tuus, ut solet homo gestare parvulum filium suum, in omni via per quam ambulastis, donec veniretis ad locum istum.

32 Et nec sic quidem credidistis Domino Deo vestro,

33 qui præcessit vos in via, et metatus est locum in quo tentoria figere deberetis, nocte ostendens vobis iter per ignem, et die per columnam nubis.

34 Cumque audisset Dominus vocem sermonum vestrorum, iratus juravit, et ait:

35 Non videbit quispiam de hominibus generationis hujus pessimæ terram bonam, quam sub juramento pollicitus sum patribus vestris,

36 præter Caleb filium Jephone: ipse enim videbit eam, et ipsi dabo terram, quam calcavit, et filiis ejus, quia secutus est Dominum.

37 Nec miranda indignatio in populum, cum mihi quoque iratus Dominus propter vos dixerit: Nec tu ingredieris illuc:

38 sed Josue filius Nun minister tuus, ipse intrabit pro te. Hunc exhortare et robora, et ipse sorte terram dividet Israëli.

39 Parvuli vestri, de quibus dixistis quod captivi ducerentur, et filii qui hodie boni ac mali ignorant distantiam, ipsi ingredientur: et ipsis dabo terram, et possidebunt eam.

40 Vos autem revertimini, et abite in solitudinem per viam maris Rubri.

41 Et respondistis mihi: Peccavimus Domino: ascendemus et pugnabimus, sicut præcepit Dominus Deus noster. Cumque instructi armis pergeretis in montem,

42 ait mihi Dominus: Dic ad eos: Nolite ascendere, neque pugnetis: non enim sum vobiscum: ne cadatis coram inimicis vestris.

43 Locutus sum, et non audistis: sed adversantes imperio Domini, et tumentes superbia, ascendistis in montem.

44 Itaque egressus Amorrhæus, qui habitabat in montibus, et obviam veniens, persecutus est vos, sicut solent apes persequi: et cecidit de Seir usque Horma.

45 Cumque reversi ploraretis coram Domino, non audivit vos, nec voci vestræ voluit acquiescere.

46 Sedistis ergo in Cadesbarne multo tempore.
