Deuteronomy 27
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Moses and [the] elderly of Israel command the people, saying, “Keep all the command which I am commanding you today; 2and it has been, in the day that you pass over the Jordan to the land which your God YHWH is giving to you, that you have raised up great stones for yourself, and plastered them with plaster, 3and written on them all the words of this law in your passing over, so that you go into the land which your God YHWH is giving to you—a land flowing with milk and honey, as YHWH, God of your fathers, has spoken to you. 4And it has been, in your passing over the Jordan, you raise up these stones which I am commanding you today, in Mount Ebal, and you have plastered them with plaster, 5and built an altar there to your God YHWH, an altar of stones; you do not wave iron over them. 6You build the altar of your God YHWH [with] complete stones, and have caused burnt-offerings to ascend on it to your God YHWH, 7and sacrificed peace-offerings, and eaten there, and rejoiced before your God YHWH, 8and written on the stones all the words of this law, well engraved.”

9And Moses speaks—the priests, the Levites, also—to all Israel, saying, “Keep silent and hear, O Israel: This day you have become a people for your God YHWH; 10and you have listened to the voice of your God YHWH, and done His commands and His statutes which I am commanding you today.”

11And Moses commands the people on that day, saying, 12“These stand on Mount Gerizzim to bless the people, in your passing over the Jordan: Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin. 13And these stand, for the reviling, on Mount Ebal: Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.” 14And the Levites have answered and said to every man of Israel [with] a loud voice:

15“Cursed [is] the man who makes a carved and molten image, an abomination [to] YHWH, work of the hands of a craftsman, and has put [it] in a secret place.” And all the people have answered and said, “Amen.”

16“Cursed [is] he who is making light of his father and his mother.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

17“Cursed [is] he who is removing his neighbor’s border.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

18“Cursed [is] he who is causing the blind to err in the way.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

19“Cursed [is] he who is turning aside the judgment of fatherless, sojourner, and widow.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

20“Cursed [is] he who is lying with his father’s wife, for he has uncovered his father’s skirt.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

21“Cursed [is] he who is lying with any beast.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

22“Cursed [is] he who is lying with his sister, daughter of his father or daughter of his mother.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

23“Cursed [is] he who is lying with his mother-in-law.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

24“Cursed [is] he who is striking his neighbor in secret.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

25“Cursed [is] he who is taking a bribe to strike a person, innocent blood.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”

26“Cursed [is] he who does not establish the words of this law, to do them.” And all the people have said, “Amen.”
