30 When you are in distress and all these things happen to you, when you are in the last days, you will return to Jehovah your God and listen to His voice.
31 For Jehovah your God is a compassionate God; He will not fail you nor let you perish nor forget the covenant with your fathers which He swore to them.
32 For ask now regarding the former days, which were before you, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from one end of heaven to the other, Has anything as great as this ever happened, or has anything like this ever been heard of?
33 Has a people ever heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and lived?
34 Has God ever ventured to go and take to Himself a nation from the midst of another nation by trials, by signs and wonders, and by war and a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, like all that Jehovah your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
35 You were shown these things that you might know that it is Jehovah who is God; there is no other besides Him.
36 From heaven He let you hear His voice that He might discipline you, and upon the earth He showed you His great fire, and His words you heard from the midst of the fire.
37 And because He loved your fathers, He chose their seed after them and brought you out by His presence, by His great power, from Egypt,
38 Driving out from before you nations greater and mightier than you, to bring you in and give you their land as an inheritance, as it is today.
39 Know therefore today and bring it to heart that Jehovah is God in heaven above and upon the earth below; there is no other.
40 Therefore keep His statutes and His commandments, which I am commanding you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, so that you may extend your days upon the land which Jehovah your God is giving you forever.
41 Then Moses set apart three cities across the Jordan toward the rising of the sun,
42 That the manslayer might flee there, who slays his neighbor without intent and did not hate him previously, and in fleeing to one of these cities he might live:
43 Bezer in the wilderness, in the land of the Plateau, belonging to the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, belonging to the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, belonging to the Manassites.
44 And this is the law which Moses set before the children of Israel;
45 These are the testimonies and the statutes and the judgments which Moses spoke to the children of Israel when they had gone out from Egypt,
46 Across the Jordan, in the valley opposite Beth-peor, in the land of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel slew when they had gone out from Egypt.
47 And they possessed his land and the land of Og the king of Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites, who were across the Jordan toward the rising of the sun,
48 From Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, even unto Mount Sirion, that is, Hermon,
49 And all the Arabah across the Jordan on the east even to the sea of the Arabah at the foot of the slopes of Pisgah.
