1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
32:1 ¶ Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak, And let the earth hear the sayings of my mouth:
32:2 Let my teaching drop as the rain, Let my speech distil as the dew,As copious rains on tender grass, As myriad drops on seeding plants.
32:4 A Rock! faultless his work, For, all his ways, are just,A GOD of faithfulness and without perversity, Right and fair, is he!
32:5 They have broken faith with him, to be no sons of histheir fault,A generation twisted and crooked.
32:7 ¶ Remember the days of age-past times, Remark the years of many generations,Ask thy father, and he will tell thee, Thine elders, and they will say to thee:
32:8 When the Most High gave inheritances unto the nations, When he spread abroad the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the peoples, According to the number of the sons of Israel.
32:10 He met him in a desert land, And in the howling waste of a wilderness,He encompassed him, watched over him, Shielded him, as the pupil of his own eye.
32:11 As, an eagle, stirreth up his nest, Over his young ones, fluttereth,Spreadeth abroad his wings, taketh one, Beareth it up on his pinions,
32:13 He made him ride on the high places of the land, Caused him to eat the increase of the fields,And gave him to suck honey out of the cliff, And oil out of the rock of flint:
32:14 Curds of kine and milk of sheep,With fat of well-fed lambs, Yea rams bred in Bashan and he-goats, With the white of the kernels of wheat,And, the blood of the grape, thou didst drink as it foamed.
32:15 ¶ Then Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: Thou wast fat, Thou wast thick, Thou wast gorged,So he forsook the GOD who made him, And treated as foolish his Rock of salvation.
32:16 They moved him to jealousy with foreign [gods],With abominations, angered they him:
32:17 They sacrificed to mischievous demons, to a No-GOD, Gods whom they knew not,New ones lately come in, Your fathers never shuddered at them!
32:18 Of the Rock who had begotten thee, thou wast unmindful,And didst forget GOD who had given thee birth.
32:20 So he said:I will hide any face from them, I will see, what will be their hereafter,For, a generation given to intrigue, they are, Sons, whom there is no trusting;
32:21 They, have moved me to jealousy with a No-GOD, They have angered me with their vanities: I, therefore, will move them to jealousy, with a No-people, With an impious nation, will I anger them.
32:22 For, a fire, is kindled in mine anger, And shall burn as far as hades beneath,And consume the earth with her produce, And set ablaze the foundations of the mountains:
32:23 I will heap on them, calamities,Mine arrows, will I spend upon them:
32:24 The meltings of hunger, The devourings of fever, And the dangerous pestilence,And, the tooth of beasts, will I send among them, With the poison of crawlers of the dust:
32:25 Without, shall the sword bereave, In the inmost recesses, terror,[To] both young man and virgin, Suckling, with man of grey hairs.
32:26 ¶ I said, I would puff them away, I would destroy from mortals, their memory;
32:28 For, a nation of vanished sagacity, they are,And there is in them no understanding.
32:29 If they had been wise, they would have understood this,They would have given heed to their hereafter!
32:31 For, not like our Rock, is their rock,Our enemies themselves, being judges;
32:32 For, of the vine of Sodom, is their vine, And of the vineyards of Gomorrah,Their grapes, are grapes of gall, Clusters of bitter things, are theirs:
32:33 The poison of large serpents, is their wine,Yea the fierce venom of asps.
32:34 Is not, that, stored up with me,Sealed up amongst my treasures;
32:35 Unto the days of vengeance and requital: Unto the time their foot shall totter? For, near, is the day of their fate, And their destiny speedeth on.
32:37 Then will he say, Where are their gods, The rock, in whom they have trusted;
32:38 Who used to eat, the fat of their sacrifices, To drink the wine of their libations? Let them rise up, and help you, Let them be over you for a coveting!
32:39 ¶ See, now, that, I, I, am, he that is, And there are no gods with me,I, killand make alive, I wound, and, I, heal, And there, is none, who, from my hand, can deliver,
32:40 For I lift up unto the heavens my hand,And say, Living, am, I, unto times age-abiding:
32:41 If I whet my flashing sword, And my hand take hold on justice, I will return vengeance unto mine adversaries, And, them who hate me, will I requite:
32:42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, And, my sword, shall devour flesh,With, the blood of the slain, and the captive, With [the flesh of] the chief leader of the foe.
32:43 Shout for joy O ye nations [with] his people, For, the blood of his servants, he avengeth,And, vengeance, he returneth unto his adversaries, And is propitious unto the soil of his people.

32:46 he said unto themApply your hearts unto all the words which I am witnessing against you, today,how that ye must command your sons to observe to do all the words of this law;
32:47 for it is not, too small a thing, for you, for, it, is your life,and, hereby, shall ye prolong your days upon the soil whereunto ye are passing over the Jordan to possess it.
