Deuteronomy 27

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, "Keep all the commandments which I command you this day.

 2 It shall be on the day when you will pass over Jordan to the land which the LORD your God gives you, that you will set you up great stones, and cover them with plaster;

 3 And you will write upon them all the words of this law, when you have passed over, that you may go in to the land which the LORD your God gives you, a land that flows with milk and honey; as the LORD God of your fathers has promised you.

 4 Therefore it shall be when you have gone over Jordan, that you will set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and you will cover them with plaster.

 5 And there shall you build an altar to the LORD your God, an altar of stones; you will not lift up any iron tool upon them.

 6 You will build the altar of the LORD your God of whole stones, and you will offer burnt offerings on it to the LORD your God:

 7 And you will offer peace offerings, and shall eat there, and rejoice before the LORD your God.

 8 And you will write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly."

 9 And Moses and the priests the Levites spoke to all Israel, saying, "Take heed, and listen, O Israel; this day you have become the people of the LORD your God.

 10 You will therefore obey the voice of the LORD your God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command you this day."

 11 And Moses charged the people the same day, saying,

 12 "These shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people, when you have come over Jordan; Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin:

 13 And these shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse; Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.

 14 And the Levites shall speak, and say to all the men of Israel with a loud voice,

 15 'Cursed is the man who makes any graven or molten image, an abomination to the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and puts it in a secret place.' And all the people will answer and say,'Amen.'

 16 'Cursed is he who sets light by his father or his mother.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 17 Cursed is he who removes his neighbor's landmark. And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 18 'Cursed is he who makes the blind to wander out of the way.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 19 'Cursed is he who perverts the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 20 'Cursed is he who lies with his father's wife; because he uncovers his father's skirt.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 21 'Cursed is he who lies with any manner of beast.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 22 'Cursed is he who lies with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 23 'Cursed is he who lies with his mother in law.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 24 'Cursed is he who smites his neighbor secretly.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 25 'Cursed is he who takes reward to slay an innocent person.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'

 26 'Cursed is he who does not confirm all the words of this law by obeying them.' And all the people will say, 'Amen.'"
