1 Hear, O Israel; Thou art crossing·​·over the Jordan today, to go·​·in to possess nations greater and more numerous than thyself, cities great and fortified to the heavens,

2 a people great and made·​·high, the sons of the Anakim, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard say, Who can stand before the sons of Anak!

3 And know today, that Jehovah thy God is He who crosses·​·over before thee; as a devouring fire He shall blot· them ·out, and He shall humble them before thee. And thou shalt dispossess them, and make· them ·perish hastily, as Jehovah has spoken to thee.

4 Say not thou in thy heart, after Jehovah thy God has pushed· them ·out from before thee, saying, For my justice Jehovah has brought· me ·in to possess this land; but for the wickedness of these nations Jehovah dispossesses from before thee.

5 Not for thy justice, or for the uprightness of thy heart, dost thou go·​·in to possess their land; but for the wickedness of these nations Jehovah thy God dispossesses them from before thee, and so·​·that He may secure the word which Jehovah promised to thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

6 Know that Jehovah thy God gives thee not this good land to possess it by thy justice; for thou art a stiffnecked people.

7 Remember, forget not, that thou hast enraged Jehovah thy God in the wilderness; from the day that thou didst go·​·out from the land of Egypt, until you came to this place, you have been rebellious with Jehovah.

8 And in Horeb you enraged Jehovah, and Jehovah was·​·angry with you to blot· you ·out.

9 When I was gone·​·up into the mountain to receive the tablets of stone, even the tablets of the covenant which Jehovah cut with you, then I dwelt in the mountain forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water;

10 and Jehovah delivered to me two tablets of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which Jehovah spoke with you in the mountain out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.

11 And it was, at the end of forty days and forty nights, that Jehovah gave me the two tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant.

12 And Jehovah said to me, Arise, come·​·down hastily from hence; for thy people whom thou hast brought·​·out from Egypt have corrupted themselves; they have hastily turned·​·aside from the way which I commanded them; they have made for themselves a molten image.

13 Furthermore Jehovah said to me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people;

14 let· Me ·go, and I will blot· them ·out, and wipe·​·away their name from under the heavens; and I will make thee into a nation more numerous and greater than they.

15 And I turned and came·​·down from the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire; and the two tablets of the covenant were on my two hands.

16 And I looked, and, behold, you had sinned against Jehovah your God, and had made you a molten calf; you had turned·​·aside quickly out of the way which Jehovah had commanded you.

17 And I caught up the two tablets, and cast them out of my two hands, and broke them before your eyes.

18 And I fell down before Jehovah, as at the first, forty days and forty nights; I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which you sinned, in doing evil in the eyes of Jehovah, to provoke Him.

19 For I was afraid of the faces of the anger and the fury with which Jehovah was·​·enraged against you to blot· you ·out. But Jehovah hearkened to me even at that time.

20 And Jehovah was· very ·angry with Aaron to blot· him ·out; and I prayed for Aaron also at that time.

21 And I took your sin which you had made, the calf, and burnt· it ·up with fire, and beat· it ·in·​·pieces, and ground it well, until it was made·​·thin as dust; and I cast its dust into the brook going·​·down from the mountain.

22 And at Taberah, and at Massah*, and at Kibroth-hattaavah, you were enraging Jehovah.

23 And when Jehovah sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go·​·up and possess the land which I have given you; then you rebelled against the mouth of Jehovah your God, and you believed not, nor obeyed His voice.

24 You have rebelled against Jehovah from the day that I knew you.

25 Thus I fell down before Jehovah forty days and forty nights, as I fell down before; for Jehovah had said He would blot· you ·out.

26 And I prayed to Jehovah, and said, O Lord Jehovih*, destroy not Thy people and Thine inheritance, whom Thou hast redeemed in Thy greatness, whom Thou hast brought·​·out from Egypt with a firm hand.

27 Remember Thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; turn· not Thy ·face to the hardness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin;

28 lest the land whence Thou broughtest· us ·out say, Because Jehovah was· not ·able to bring them into the land of which He spoke to them, and because from His hatred of them, He has brought· them ·out to make· them ·die in the wilderness.

29 But they are Thy people and Thine inheritance, whom Thou broughtest·​·out by Thy great power and by Thy stretched·​·out arm.

Explanation of Deuteronomy 9      

Napsal(a) Alexander Payne

Verses 1-6. There is no righteousness naturally in the soul.

Verses 7-29. The dualism in the mind between what is spiritual and what is natural, and the stubborn rejection of all good by the latter.
