1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 Moses encourageth the people. 7 He encourageth Joshua. 9 He delivereth the Law unto the priests to read it in the seventh year to the people. 14 God giveth a charge to Joshua, 19 and a song to testify against the people. 24 Moses delivereth the book of the Law to the Levites to keep. 28 He maketh a protestation to the elders.
31:1 ¶ And Moses went, and spake these words, unto all Israel;
31:7 And Moses called for Joshua, and said unto him, in the sight of all Israel, Be firm and bold, for, thou, shalt go with this people, into the land which Yahweh sware unto their fathers, to give unto them, and, thou, shalt cause them to inherit it.
31:10 And Moses commanded them, saying,At the end of seven years, in the appointed season of the year of release, during the festival of booths;
31:12 Call together the peoplethe men, and the women, and the little ones, and thy sojourner, who is within thy gates,that they may hear, and that they may learn, so shall they revere Yahweh your God, and observe to do all the words of this law;
31:14 ¶ Then said Yahweh unto Moses: Lo! thy days have drawn near, that thou must die. Call Joshua, and station yourselves in the tent of meeting, that I may command him. So Moses went, with Joshua, and they took their station in the tent of meeting.
31:16 Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Lo! thou art about to sleep with thy fathers,and this people will rise up, and go away unchastely after the gods of the foreigners of the land, into the midst of whom they are entering, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I solemnised with them.
31:17 Then will mine anger kindle upon them in that day, and I will forsake them, and will hide my face from them, and they shall be consumed, and many calamities and misfortunes shall find them out,and they will say, in that day, Is it not because my God is not in my midst, that these calamities have found me out?
31:18 But, I, will utterly, hide, my face, in that day, because of all the wickedness which they have done, in that they have turned away unto other gods.
31:19 Now, therefore, write ye for you this Song, and teach it unto the sons of Israel, put it in their mouths,that this Song may become for me, a witness, against the sons of Israel.
31:20 When I bring them upon the soil which I sware unto their fathers, flowing with milk and honey, and they shall eat and be filled, and wax fat, then will they turn away unto other gods and serve them, and despise me, and break my covenant.
31:21 And it shall come to pass, when many calamities and misfortunes shall find them out, then shall this Song respond to their face, as a witness, for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouth of their seed, for I know their imagination, which they are forming today, ere yet I bring them into the land of which I sware unto their fathers.
31:22 ¶ Moses, therefore, wrote this Song, on that day,and taught it unto the sons of Israel.
31:23 And he commanded Joshua, son of Nun, and saidBe firm and bold, for, thou, shalt bring the sons of Israel into the land which I have sworn to them,and, I, will be with thee.
31:24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law, upon a scroll,until he had finished them,
31:28 Call together unto me, all the elders of your tribes, and your officers,and let me speak in their hearing these words, and let me take to witness against them the heavens and the earth.
31:29 For I know that, after my death, ye will, break faith, and turn aside out of the way which I have commanded you,and calamity will befall you, in the afterpart of the days, because ye will do the thing that is wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, to provoke him with the work of your own hands.
