申命记 11

要听从耶和华

1“你们要爱你们的上帝耶和华,时刻遵守祂的吩咐、律例、典章和诫命。 要记住,我现在是对你们,而不是对你们的孩子说话。他们没有亲身经历、亲眼见过你们上帝耶和华的管教、威严、大能的手和伸出的臂膀; 祂怎样在埃及行神迹奇事对付法老及其国家; 怎样使红海淹没追赶你们的埃及军队和车马,将他们永远毁灭; 怎样在旷野一路看顾你们,一直来到这里; 怎样对付吕便人以利押的儿子大坍和亚比兰,使大地在以色列人当中裂开,吞没了他们及其家人、帐篷和所有随从。 你们亲眼目睹了耶和华的这些伟大作为。

“因此,你们要遵守我今天吩咐你们的诫命,以便有力量过河攻取你们将要攻取的土地, 长久居住在耶和华起誓赐给你们祖先及其后裔的奶蜜之乡。 10 那片土地不像你们离开的埃及。在埃及你们撒种后,要像浇菜园一样辛勤灌溉[a] 11 而你们将要占领的那片土地却有山有谷,雨水充足, 12 你们的上帝耶和华从岁首到年终时时看顾那里。

13 “如果你们谨遵我今天吩咐你们的诫命,全心全意地爱你们的上帝耶和华,事奉祂, 14 祂就会按时降下秋雨和春雨,使你们收获谷物、新酒和油, 15 有草场饲养牲畜,丰衣足食。 16 你们要谨慎,免得被迷惑,转而祭拜、供奉其他神明。 17 否则,耶和华必向你们发怒,使天不下雨、地无出产,以致你们在祂赐给你们的佳美之地上迅速灭亡。

18 “所以,你们要把我的这些吩咐铭记在心,系在手上,戴在额上作记号; 19 要用这些话教导你们的儿女,无论在家在外、或起或卧,都要讲论; 20 也要写在城门上和自家的门框上。 21 这样,你们及子孙就可以生活在耶和华起誓赐给你们祖先的土地上,与天地同长。 22 如果你们谨遵我吩咐你们的这一切诫命——爱你们的上帝耶和华,遵行祂的旨意,依靠祂, 23 耶和华就会为你们赶走那些比你们强大的民族,你们也必占领他们的土地。 24 你们脚掌踏过的地方都要归你们。你们的疆界南到旷野,北到黎巴嫩,东到幼发拉底河,西到地中海。 25 所到之处无人能抵挡你们,因为你们的上帝耶和华会使那些地方的人对你们充满惧怕,正如祂对你们的应许。

26 “看啊,我今天把祝福和咒诅摆在你们面前。 27 你们若遵行我今天吩咐你们的诫命,就会得到祝福。 28 你们若不遵行你们的上帝耶和华的诫命,偏离我今天吩咐你们当走的道路,随从不认识的神明,必受咒诅。 29 你们的上帝耶和华带领你们进入并占领那片土地时,你们要在基利心山上宣告祝福,在以巴路山上宣告咒诅。 30 基利心山和以巴路山属于住在亚拉巴的迦南人,位于约旦河西岸的日落之处,在吉甲对面,靠近摩利橡树。 31 你们穿过约旦河,占领耶和华赐给你们的土地,定居下来以后, 32 要谨遵我今天颁布给你们的一切律例和典章。

Deuteronomy 11

Love and obey the Lord

1Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always. Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the Lord your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm; the signs he performed and the things he did in the heart of Egypt, both to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his whole country; what he did to the Egyptian army, to its horses and chariots, how he overwhelmed them with the waters of the Red Sea[a] as they were pursuing you, and how the Lord brought lasting ruin on them. It was not your children who saw what he did for you in the wilderness until you arrived at this place, and what he did to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when the earth opened its mouth right in the middle of all Israel and swallowed them up with their households, their tents and every living thing that belonged to them. But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the Lord has done.

Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, and so that you may live long in the land that the Lord swore to your ancestors to give to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10 The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden. 11 But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. 12 It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.

13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today – to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul – 14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your corn, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. 17 Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and he will shut the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you. 18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the door-frames of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.

22 If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow – to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him and to hold fast to him – 23 then the Lord will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you. 24 Every place where you set your foot will be yours: your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the River Euphrates to the Mediterranean Sea. 25 No one will be able to stand against you. The Lord your God, as he promised you, will put the terror and fear of you on the whole land, wherever you go.

26 See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse – 27 the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; 28 the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known. 29 When the Lord your God has brought you into the land you are entering to possess, you are to proclaim on Mount Gerizim the blessings, and on Mount Ebal the curses. 30 As you know, these mountains are across the Jordan, westward, towards the setting sun, near the great trees of Moreh, in the territory of those Canaanites living in the Arabah in the vicinity of Gilgal. 31 You are about to cross the Jordan to enter and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you. When you have taken it over and are living there, 32 be sure that you obey all the decrees and laws I am setting before you today.
