Deuteronomy 5

1 And Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears today, that you may learn them, and keep to do them.

2 Jehovah our God cut a covenant with us in Horeb.

3 Jehovah cut not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, these here, all of us living today.

4 Jehovah spoke with you face to face in the mountain out of the midst of the fire

5 (I stood between Jehovah and you at that time, to tell you the word of Jehovah; for you were fearful in the face of the fire, and went· not ·up into the mountain), saying,

6 I am Jehovah thy God, who brought· thee ·out of the land of Egypt, out·​·of the house of servitude*.

7 Thou shalt have no other gods before My faces.

8 Thou shalt not make to thee a graven image, any figure of what is in the heavens above, or what is in the earth beneath, or what is in the waters beneath the earth;

9 thou shalt not bow·​·down thyself to them, nor serve them; for I, Jehovah thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the sons, and on the third and on the fourth generation* of those who hate Me,

10 and doing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

11 Thou shalt not take the name of Jehovah thy God in vain; for Jehovah will not hold· him ·innocent who takes His name in vain.

12 Observe the Sabbath day to keep· it ·holy, as Jehovah thy God has commanded thee.

13 Six days thou shalt serve, and do all thy work*;

14 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of Jehovah thy God; thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy servant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine donkey, nor any beast of thine, nor thy sojourner who is in thy gates; so·​·that thy servant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

15 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that Jehovah thy God brought· thee ·out thence by a firm hand and by a stretched·​·out arm; therefore Jehovah thy God commanded thee to do the Sabbath day.

16 Honor thy father and thy mother, as Jehovah thy God has commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may be·​·well with thee, upon the ground which Jehovah thy God is giving to thee.

17 Thou shalt not murder.

18 And thou shalt not commit·​·adultery.

19 And thou shalt not steal.

20 And thou shalt not answer against thy neighbor as a vain witness*.

21 18 And thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, and thou shalt not lust·​·after thy neighbor’s house, his field, or his servant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his donkey, or any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

22 19 These words Jehovah spoke to all your assembly in the mountain from the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the dense·​·darkness, with a great voice; and He added not. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone, and gave them to me.

23 20 And it was, when you heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness (for the mountain did burn with fire), that you came·​·near to me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;

24 21 and you said, Behold, Jehovah our God has showed us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire; this day we have seen that God speaks with man, and he lives.

25 22 And now why should we die? for this great fire will devour us; if we again hear the voice of Jehovah our God, then we shall die.

26 23 For who is there of all flesh, that has heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

27 24 Come· thou ·near, and hear all that Jehovah our God shall say; and speak thou to us all that Jehovah our God shall speak to thee; and we will hear it, and do it.

28 25 And Jehovah heard the voice of your words, when you spoke to me; and Jehovah said to me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken to thee; they have well said all that they have spoken.

29 26 O that there were such a heart in them, that they would fear Me, and keep all My commandments all the days, that it might be well with them, and with their sons for eternity!

30 27 Go say to them, Return into your tents.

31 28 But as for thee, stand here with·​·Me, and I will speak to thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give to them to possess it.

32 29 And you shall take·​·heed to do as Jehovah your God has commanded you; you shall not turn·​·aside, right or left.

33 30 You shall walk in all the ways which Jehovah your God has commanded you, so·​·that you may live, and that it may be·​·well for you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess.

Explanation of Deuteronomy 5      

Napsal(a) Alexander Payne

Verses 1-5. The keeping the commandments and obeying the Divine will as given in the Word is the covenant to conjoin the soul with heaven.

Verses 6-21. The Ten Commandments, which are a summary of the Divine Law (For the full explanation of the Ten Commandments see Arcana Coelestia 8863-8912. It is perhaps scarcely necessary to state here that the fact of the moral commands containing a spiritual sense does not mean any weakening of the literal sense.)

Verses 22-29. The perception of the perfections of the Divine Being; and the utter discordance of its desires and thoughts therewith, alarms the soul.

Verses 30-33. Instruction that if the soul leads a good life as far as it can, it receives a perception of truth accommodated to its state which leads it on by degrees.

Swedenborg
