13 And He declared to you His covenant, which He commanded you to do, ten words; and He wrote them upon two tablets of stone.
14 And Jehovah commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments for you to do in the land which you are about to cross over into to possess.
15 So take careful heed to your souls, for you did not see any form at all on the day when Jehovah spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire,
16 So that you do not spoil yourselves and make for yourselves an idol, a form of any image, a figure of male or female,
17 A figure of any animal which is on the earth, a figure of any winged bird which flies in the sky,
18 A figure of anything that crawls on the ground, a figure of any fish that is in the water under the earth;
19 And take heed that, when you lift up your eyes to the sky and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you are not drawn away in worship to them and that you do not serve them, which Jehovah your God has assigned to all the peoples under all heaven.
20 But Jehovah has taken you and brought you forth from the iron furnace, from Egypt, that you would be to Him a people for His inheritance, as you are this day.
21 But Jehovah was angry with me on your account and swore that I would not cross over the Jordan and that I would not enter the good land which Jehovah your God is giving you as an inheritance.
22 For I am to die in this land; I am not to cross over the Jordan. But you are crossing over and you will possess this good land.
23 Take heed to yourselves that you do not forget the covenant of Jehovah your God, which He has made with you, and make for yourselves an idol, the form of anything, which Jehovah your God has forbidden you to make .
24 For Jehovah your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
25 When you have brought forth children and grandchildren and have languished in the land, and you have spoiled yourselves by making an idol, the form of anything, and have done that which is evil in the sight of Jehovah your God so as to anger Him;
26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that surely you will soon perish from off the land into which you are crossing over the Jordan to possess; you will not extend your days upon it, but you will be utterly destroyed.
27 And Jehovah will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations to which Jehovah will drive you.
28 And there you will serve gods which are the work of human hands, mere wood and stone, which do not see nor hear nor eat nor smell.
29 And from there you will seek Jehovah your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
