||haec sunt praecepta et caerimoniae atque iudicia quae mandavit Dominus Deus vester ut docerem vos et faciatis ea in terra ad quam transgredimini possidendam
These are the precepts, and ceremonies, and judgments, which the Lord your God commanded that I should teach you, and that you should do them in the land into which you pass over to possess it:
||ut timeas Dominum Deum tuum et custodias omnia mandata et praecepta eius quae ego praecipio tibi et filiis ac nepotibus tuis cunctis diebus vitae tuae ut prolongentur dies tui
That thou mayst fear the Lord thy God, and keep all his commandments and precepts, which I command thee, and thy sons, and thy grandsons, all the days of thy life, that thy days may be prolonged.
||audi Israhel et observa ut facias et bene sit tibi et multipliceris amplius sicut pollicitus est Dominus Deus patrum tuorum tibi terram lacte et melle manantem
Hear, O Israel, and observe to do the things which the Lord hath commanded thee, that it may be well with thee, and thou mayst be greatly multiplied, as the Lord the God of thy fathers hath promised thee a land flowing with milk and honey.
||audi Israhel Dominus Deus noster Dominus unus est
Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord.
||diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo et ex tota anima tua et ex tota fortitudine tua
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole strength.
||eruntque verba haec quae ego praecipio tibi hodie in corde tuo
And these words which I command thee this day, shall be in thy heart:
||et narrabis ea filiis tuis et meditaberis sedens in domo tua et ambulans in itinere dormiens atque consurgens
And thou shalt tell them to thy children, and thou shalt meditate upon them sitting in thy house, and walking on thy journey, sleeping and rising.
||et ligabis ea quasi signum in manu tua eruntque et movebuntur inter oculos tuos
And thou shalt bind them as a sign on thy hand, and they shall be and shall move between thy eyes.
||scribesque ea in limine et ostiis domus tuae
And thou shalt write them in the entry, and on the doors of thy house.
||cumque introduxerit te Dominus Deus tuus in terram pro qua iuravit patribus tuis Abraham Isaac et Iacob et dederit tibi civitates magnas et optimas quas non aedificasti
And when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land, for which he swore to thy fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: and shall have given thee great and goodly cities, which thou didst not build,
||domos plenas cunctarum opum quas non extruxisti cisternas quas non fodisti vineta et oliveta quae non plantasti
Houses full of riches, which thou didst not set up, cisterns which thou didst not dig, vineyards and oliveyards, which thou didst not plant,
||et comederis et saturatus fueris
And thou shalt have eaten and be full:
||cave diligenter ne obliviscaris Domini qui eduxit te de terra Aegypti de domo servitutis Dominum Deum tuum timebis et ipsi servies ac per nomen illius iurabis
Take heed deligently lest thou forget the Lord, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and shalt serve him only, and thou shalt swear by his name.
||non ibitis post deos alienos cunctarum gentium quae in circuitu vestro sunt
You shall not go after the strange gods of all the nations, that are round about you:
||quoniam Deus aemulator Dominus Deus tuus in medio tui nequando irascatur furor Domini Dei tui contra te et auferat te de superficie terrae
Because the Lord thy God is a jealous God in the midst of thee: lest at any time the wrath of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and take thee away from the face of the earth.
||non temptabis Dominum Deum tuum sicut temptasti in loco temptationis
Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God, as thou temptedst him in the place of temptation.
||custodi praecepta Domini Dei tui ac testimonia et caerimonias quas praecepit tibi
Keep the precepts of the Lord thy God, and the testimonies and ceremonies which he hath commanded thee.
||et fac quod placitum est et bonum in conspectu Domini ut bene sit tibi et ingressus possideas terram optimam de qua iuravit Dominus patribus tuis
And do that which is pleasing and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with thee: and going in thou mayst possess the goodly land, concerning which the Lord swore to thy fathers,
||ut deleret omnes inimicos tuos coram te sicut locutus est
That he would destroy all thy enemies before thee, as he hath spoken.
||cum interrogaverit te filius tuus cras dicens quid sibi volunt testimonia haec et caerimoniae atque iudicia quae praecepit Dominus Deus noster nobis
And when thy son shall ask thee to morrow, saying: What mean these testimonies, and ceremonies and judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded us?
||dices ei servi eramus Pharaonis in Aegypto et eduxit nos Dominus de Aegypto in manu forti
Thou shalt say to him: We were bondmen of Pharao in Egypt, and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand.
||fecitque signa atque prodigia magna et pessima in Aegypto contra Pharaonem et omnem domum illius in conspectu nostro
And he wrought signs and wonders great and very grievous in Egypt against Pharao, and all his house, in our sight,
||et eduxit nos inde ut introductis daret terram super qua iuravit patribus nostris
And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in and give us the land, concerning which he swore to our fathers.
||praecepitque nobis Dominus ut faciamus omnia legitima haec et timeamus Dominum Deum nostrum et bene sit nobis cunctis diebus vitae nostrae sicut est hodie
And the Lord commanded that we should do all these ordinances, and should fear the Lord our God, that it might be well with us all the days of our life, as it is at this day.
||eritque nostri misericors si custodierimus et fecerimus omnia praecepta eius coram Domino Deo nostro sicut mandavit nobis
And he will be merciful to us, if we keep and do all his precepts before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.
