Israel will sing the song of Moses and acclaim: God speaks to heaven and earth; the children of Israel were known in the premortal life; God chose them in this life; they forgot the Rock of their salvation; He sent terror, a sword, and vengeance upon them; there is no God beside Him—Moses will be gathered to his people.
3 Because I will apublish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
9 For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his ainheritance.
11 As an aeagle 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 ahigh places 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;
15 ¶ But aJeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen bfat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he cforsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the dRock of his salvation.
18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that aformed thee.
21 They have moved me to ajealousy with that which is not God; they have bprovoked me to canger with their vanities: and I will move them to djealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
22 For a afire 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 amischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
24 They shall be aburnt 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 asword 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 ascatter them into corners, 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 ahigh, and the Lord hath not done all this.
28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to aflight, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up?
31 For their rock is not as our aRock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of aSodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?
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.
40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I alive for ever.
41 If I whet my glittering asword, 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.
45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to aall Israel:
47 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall aprolong 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 aNebo, which is in the land of Moab, that is bover against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:
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.
