Deut. 32 :1 32:1 Give ear, O aheaven, and let me speak;
And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
Deut. 32 :2 32:2 Let my teaching drop like the arain;
Let my speech distill like the dew,
Like raindrops upon tender grass,
And like abundant bshowers upon herbage.
Deut. 32 :3 32:3 For the name of Jehovah will I declare.
Ascribe greatness to our God!
Deut. 32 :4 32:4 The aRock — perfect is His work,
For all His bways are justice:
A God of faithfulness and without injustice;
Righteous and upright is He.
Deut. 32 :5 32:5 Corruptly have they dealt with Him — their blemish is not His 1sons
A twisted and acrooked generation are they.
Deut. 32 :6 32:6 Do you repay Jehovah with this,
Foolish and unwise people?
Is He not your aFather who bought you?
Was it not He who bmade you and established you?
Deut. 32 :7 32:7 Remember the days of long ago;
Consider the years of generation upon generation;
Ask your father, and he will inform you;
Your elders, and they will tell you.
Deut. 32 :8 32:8 When the aMost High gave the nations their inheritance,
When He bdivided the sons of 1man,
He set the cborders of the peoples
According to the number of Israel’s children.
Deut. 32 :9 32:9 For Jehovah’s portion is His people;
Jacob is the allotment of His ainheritance.
Deut. 32 :10 32:10 He found him in a land of awilderness,
And in a howling desert waste;
He encircled him, cared for him with all attention;
He guarded him like the bpupil of His eye.
Deut. 32 :11 32:11 As the aeagle rouses his nest,
Hovers over his young,
Spreads his bwings, takes them,
And bears them up upon his pinions;
Deut. 32 :12 32:12 So Jehovah alone aled him,
And there was bno strange god with Him.
Deut. 32 :13 32:13 He made him ride on the ahigh places of the earth,
And he ate the produce of the field;
And He made him suck bhoney out of a crag,
And coil out of flint rock:
Deut. 32 :14 32:14 Curd of cows and milk of sheep,
With fat of lambs,
And rams, the offspring of Bashan, and goats,
With the choicest awheat;
And the bblood of the grape you drank as fermenting wine.
Deut. 32 :15 32:15 But 1aJeshurun grew fat and kicked —
You have become bfat, you have grown thick, you have gorged yourself —
And forsook God, who made him,
And treated the cRock of his salvation disdainfully.
Deut. 32 :16 32:16 They made Him ajealous with strange gods;
With abominations they provoked Him to anger.
Deut. 32 :17 32:17 They sacrificed to 1ademons, to those who were no god,
To gods they did not know,
To new ones who had recently come up,
Before whom your fathers had not shuddered.
Deut. 32 :18 32:18 You have neglected the aRock who begot you
And have forgotten the God who travailed with you.
Deut. 32 :19 32:19 And Jehovah saw and held them in contempt,
Because of anger provoked by His asons and daughters.
Deut. 32 :20 32:20 And He said, I will ahide My face from them;
I will see what their latter end will be.
For they are a generation of perversions,
Children in whom is no faithfulness.
Deut. 32 :21 32:21 They have made Me ajealous with a non-God;
They have provoked Me to anger with their 1bvanities.
Hence I will make them cjealous with a dnon-people;
With a foolish nation I will provoke them to anger.
Deut. 32 :22 32:22 For a afire is kindled in My anger
And burns unto nethermost 1Sheol.
And it devours the earth and its produce
And sets ablaze the foundations of the mountains.
Deut. 32 :23 32:23 I will heap evils on them;
I will use up My aarrows against them.
Deut. 32 :24 32:24 They shall be sucked up by famine,
And eaten up by fire bolt
And bitter destruction;
And I will send the teeth of beasts against them,
With the venom of those that crawl in the dust.
Deut. 32 :25 32:25 The sword shall bereave outside,
And inside, terror;
Taking both the young man and the virgin,
The suckling with the gray-haired man.
Deut. 32 :26 32:26 I would have said, I will ascatter them,
I will cause the memory of them to cease from among men;
Deut. 32 :27 32:27 Except I dreaded the vexation from the enemy;
Lest their adversaries misjudge;
Lest they say, Our hand is exalted,
And it is not Jehovah who has wrought all this.
Deut. 32 :28 32:28 For they are a nation destitute of counsel,
And there is ano understanding in them.
Deut. 32 :29 32:29 If they had been wise, they would have comprehended athis,
They would have perceived their latter end.
Deut. 32 :30 32:30 How shall aone chase a thousand,
And two put ten thousand to flight,
Were it not that their Rock sold them,
And Jehovah delivered them up?
Deut. 32 :31 32:31 For their rock is not like our aRock;
And of this our enemies are judges.
Deut. 32 :32 32:32 For their vine is from Sodom’s vine,
And from Gomorrah’s fields;
Their grapes are the grapes of poison;
Clusters of bitterness have they.
Deut. 32 :33 32:33 Their wine is the venom of serpents
And the cruel poison of cobras.
Deut. 32 :34 32:34 Is this not laid up in store with Me,
Sealed up in My treasuries?
Deut. 32 :35 32:35 aVengeance is Mine and so is retribution,
For the time when their foot slips;
Because the day of their calamity has drawn near,
And the things destined to happen to them hasten.
Deut. 32 :36 32:36 aFor Jehovah will 1execute judgment for His people,
And He will have compassion on His servants,
When He sees that their support is gone,
And that neither fettered nor free remain.
Deut. 32 :37 32:37 And He will say, aWhere are their gods,
The rock they sought refuge in,
Deut. 32 :38 32:38 Who ate the fat of their sacrifices,
And drank the wine of their drink offering?
Let them rise up and help you;
Let 1them be a shelter over you.
Deut. 32 :39 32:39 See now that I, I am He,
And there is no god with Me.
It is I who kill, and I amake alive;
I wound, and it is I who bheal;
cAnd there is no one who can deliver from My hand.
Deut. 32 :40 32:40 For I alift up My hand to heaven
And say, As I blive forever:
Deut. 32 :41 32:41 If I sharpen My flashing sword,
And My hand takes hold of judgment,
I will repay My adversaries with vengeance,
And those who hate Me will I recompense.
Deut. 32 :42 32:42 I will make My arrows drunk with blood,
And My sword will devour flesh —
With the blood of the slain and of the captives,
The flesh of the long-haired 1leaders of the enemy.
Deut. 32 :43 32:43 aShout 1joyously, you nations, with His people,
Because He will bavenge the blood of His servants,
And He will repay His adversaries with vengeance
And will cover the guilt of His land and of His people.

Deut. 32 :44 32:44 And Moses came and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and aHoshea the son of Nun.

Deut. 32 :47 32:47 For it is not a matter too vain for you, because it is your alife; and by this matter you will extend your days upon the land into which you are crossing over the Jordan to possess.

A. The death of Moses 32:48-52
Deut. 32 :48 32:48 And Jehovah spoke to Moses that same day, saying,
Deut. 32 :49 32:49 aGo up to this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, which faces Jericho, and see the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel as a possession;
Deut. 32 :50 32:50 And die in the mountain to which you are going up, and be gathered to your people, just as Aaron your brother died in Mount Hor and was gathered to his people;
Deut. 32 :51 32:51 Because 1you were unfaithful to Me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because 1you did not 2sanctify Me among the children of Israel.
Deut. 32 :52 32:52 But from a distance you shall asee the land, yet you shall 1not go there into the land which I am giving to the children of Israel.
