1 a ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and b, O earth, the c of my mouth.
2 My doctrine shall drop as the a, my b shall distil as the c, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
3 Because I will a the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
4 He is the a, his work is b: for all his ways are c: a God of truth and without iniquity, d and right is he.
5 They have corrupted themselves, a spot is not the spot of his b: they are a c and crooked d.
6 Do ye thus a the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy b that hath c thee? hath he not d thee, and established thee?
7 ¶a the days of old, consider the years of many generations: b thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.
8 When the most High divided to the a their b, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the c of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
9 For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his a.
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he a, he instructed him, he kept him as the b of his eye.
11 As an a stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
12 So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
13 He made him ride on the a of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure a of the b.
15 ¶But a waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen b, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he c God which made him, and lightly esteemed the d of his salvation.
16 They a him to b with strange c, with abominations provoked they him to anger.
17 They a unto devils, b; to c whom they knew not, to new d that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that a.
19 And when the Lord saw it, he a them, because of the b of his sons, and of his daughters.
20 And he said, I will a my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a b generation, children in whom is no c.
21 They have moved me to a with that which is not God; they have b me to c with their vanities: and I will move them to d with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
22 For a a is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
23 I will heap a upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
24 They shall be a with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
25 The a without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
26 I said, I would a, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is a, and the Lord hath not done all this.
28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
29 O that they were a, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter b!
30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to a, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up?
31 For their rock is not as our a, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of a, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
33 Their a is the poison of b, and the cruel venom of asps.
34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?
35 To me belongeth a, and b; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their c is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
36 For the Lord shall a his people, and b himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none c.
37 And he shall say, Where are their a, their rock in whom they b,
38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
39 See now that I, even I, a he, and there is no god b: c kill, and I make d; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I a for ever.
41 If I whet my glittering a, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will a the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be b unto his land, and to his people.
44 ¶And Moses came and spake all the words of this a in the ears of the people, he, and b the son of Nun.
45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to a:
46 And he said unto them, Set your a unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your b to observe to do, all the words of this law.
47 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall a your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
48 And the Lord spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,
49 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount a, which is in the land of Moab, that is b Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:
50 And a in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as b thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:
51 Because ye a against me among the children of Israel at the waters of b, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.
52 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.
