← Deuteronomy 16   Deuteronomy 18 →         

1 Thou shalt not sacrifice to Jehovah thy God any ox, or sheep, in which there is a blemish, or any bad thing; for it is an abomination to Jehovah thy God.

2 If there be·​·found among you, within any of thy gates which Jehovah thy God gives thee, man or woman, that has done evil in the eyes of Jehovah thy God, in transgressing His covenant,

3 and has gone and served other gods, and bowed·​·down to them, and to the sun, or to the moon, or to all the army of the heavens, which I have not commanded;

4 and it be·​·told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and inquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is done in Israel;

5 then thou shalt bring·​·out that man or that woman, who has done this evil thing, to thy gates, even the man or the woman, and shalt stone them with stones, and they shall die.

6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he who should die be put·​·to·​·death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put·​·to·​·death.

7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first on him to put· him ·to·​·death, and afterwards the hands of all the people. And thou shalt sweep·​·away the evil from among you.

8 If a thing is wonderful from thee for a judgment, between blood for blood, between cause for cause, and between blow for blow, things of dispute in thy gates; then shalt thou arise, and go·​·up into the place which Jehovah thy God shall choose.

9 And thou shalt come to the priests, the Levites, and to the judge who shall be in those days, and inquire; and they shall tell thee the word of judgment.

10 And thou shalt do according to the mouth of the word which they shall·​·tell thee from that place which Jehovah shall choose; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they instruct thee,

11 according to the mouth of the law which they shall instruct thee, and according to the judgment which they shall say to thee, thou shalt do; thou shalt not turn·​·aside from the word which they shall tell thee, to the right·​·hand, nor to the left.

12 And the man who does presumptuously instead of hearkening to the priest who stands to minister there before Jehovah thy God, or to the judge, even that man shall·​·die; and thou shalt sweep·​·away the evil from Israel.

13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and not do·​·presumptuously any more.

14 When thou art come to the land which Jehovah thy God gives thee, and shalt possess her, and shalt dwell in her, and shalt say, I will set over me a king, as all the nations that are around me;

15 setting thou shalt set over thee a king, him whom Jehovah thy God shall choose; one from among thy brothers shalt thou set over thee as king: thou mayest not put over thee a foreign man, him who is not thy brother.

16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses; forasmuch as Jehovah has said to you, You shall henceforth return no more that way.

17 And he shall not multiply wives to himself, and his heart shall not turn·​·aside; and silver and gold he shall not multiply for himself exceedingly.

18 And it shall be, as he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a second copy* of this law in a book from that which is before the priests, the Levites;

19 and it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life; that he may learn to fear Jehovah his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

20 that his heart be not exalted above his brothers, and that he turn· not ·aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left hand; to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his sons, in the midst of Israel.

Explanation of Deuteronomy 17      

Napsal(a) Alexander Payne

Verse 1. The service rendered to the Lord must be the very best the soul can give.

Verses 2-7. Any thought or affection which averts the soul from the Divine Humanity to be destroyed out of the mind.

Verses 8-13. Matters that cannot be decided in the external mind to be submitted to the judgement of heaven.

Verses 14-20. When the soul is perfected it will acquire and be governed by definite principles of action, in accordance with its perception of good, but these must be kept constantly subservient to the laws of heaven.

Swedenborg
