1 28:69 These are the words of the covenant, which Jehovah commanded Moses to cut with the sons of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the covenant which He cut with them in Horeb.

2 1 And Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, You have seen all that Jehovah did before your eyes in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land;

3 2 the great proofs which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles;

4 3 and Jehovah has not given you a heart to know, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, even·​·to this day.

5 4 And I have caused you to go forty years in the wilderness; your raiment is not worn·​·out from upon you, and thy shoe is not worn·​·out from upon thy foot.

6 5 You have not eaten bread, neither have you drunk wine or strong·​·drink; that you might know that I am Jehovah your God.

7 6 And when you came to this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, went·​·out to meet us for battle, and we smote them;

8 7 and we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of the Manassites.

9 8 And you shall keep the words of this covenant, and do them, and you shall have·​·intelligence in all that you do.

10 9 You stand·​·up today, all of you before Jehovah your God; your heads of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, every man of Israel,

11 10 your infants, your wives, and thy sojourner who is in the midst thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood to the drawer of thy water;

12 11 that thou shouldest pass into a covenant with Jehovah thy God, and into His oath, which Jehovah thy God cuts with thee today;

13 12 so·​·that He may raise· thee ·up today, for a people for Himself, that He may be to thee for God, as He has spoken to thee, and as He has promised to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

14 13 Neither with you only do I cut this covenant and this oath;

15 14 but with him who is standing here with us today before Jehovah our God, and also with him who is not here with us today.

16 15 For you know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we crossed·​·through the midst of the nations which you crossed·​·through;

17 16 and you have seen their detestable things, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were with them,

18 17 lest there·​·be among you a man, or a woman, or a family, or a tribe, whose heart turns· the ·face away today from Jehovah our God, to go serve the gods of these nations; lest there·​·be among you a root that makes the fruit of gall and wormwood;

19 18 and it shall be, when he hears the words of this oath, that he shall bless himself in his heart, saying, Peace shall be for me; for I walk in the stubbornness of my heart to gather the drunken with the thirsty;

20 19 Jehovah is· not ·willing to pardon him, for then the anger of Jehovah and His jealousy shall smoke against that man, and every oath written in this book shall couch against him, and Jehovah shall wipe·​·away his name from under the heavens.

21 20 And Jehovah shall separate him into evil out·​·of all the tribes of Israel, according·​·to all the oaths of the covenant that are written in the book of this law.

22 21 And the later generation of your sons who shall rise·​·up after you, and the foreigner who shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the smitings of that land, and the sicknesses with which Jehovah has made· her ·sick:

23 22 All her land is burning·​·up, sulfur and salt. It is not sown, nor grows, nor does any herb go·​·up in it, as the overturning of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboim, which Jehovah overturned in His anger, and in His fury.

24 23 And all nations shall say, Why has Jehovah done thus to this land? What means the fierceness of this great anger?

25 24 And they shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of Jehovah, the God of their fathers, which He cut with them when He brought· them ·out from the land of Egypt.

26 25 And they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom He had not imparted to them.

27 26 And the anger of Jehovah was·​·fierce against this land, to bring upon her all the curses written in this book.

28 27 And Jehovah plucked· them ·up from upon their ground in anger, and in fury, and in great rage, and cast them into another land, as at this day.

29 28 The secret things belong to Jehovah our God; but those which are revealed belong to us and to our sons even·​·to eternity, that we may do all the words of this law.

Explanation of Deuteronomy 29      

Napsal(a) Alexander Payne

Verses 1-9. A brief résumé of the past, showing from experience the necessity of keeping the Divine commands.

Verses 10-15. All the faculties of the soul are present before the Lord, who desires to bring them all to Himself, as well as their future developments.

Verses 16-17. The evils of the unregenerate heart have now been perceived.

Verses 18-21. Let not anyone imagine that it is possible to follow after these evils and yet retain spiritual life.

Verses 22-28. The higher principles of the mind become, if perverted, more depraved than those which are external.

Verse 29. The operation of Divine Providence is secret, but this is plain, that the Divine commands must be worked out in the life.

Swedenborg
