The Lord Renews the Covenant

10And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which you are shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with you. 11Observe you that which I command you this day: behold, I drive out before you the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. 12Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you go, lest it be for a snare in the middle of you: 13But you shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: 14For you shall worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: 15Lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice to their gods, and one call you, and you eat of his sacrifice; 16And you take of their daughters to your sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make your sons go a whoring after their gods. 17You shall make you no molten gods. 18The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, in the time of the month Abib: for in the month Abib you came out from Egypt. 19All that opens the matrix is mine; and every firstling among your cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male. 20But the firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb: and if you redeem him not, then shall you break his neck. All the firstborn of your sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before me empty. 21Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest: in ripening time and in harvest you shall rest. 22And you shall observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end. 23Thrice in the year shall all your male children appear before the LORD God, the God of Israel. 24For I will cast out the nations before you, and enlarge your borders: neither shall any man desire your land, when you shall go up to appear before the LORD your God thrice in the year. 25You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left to the morning. 26The first of the first fruits of your land you shall bring to the house of the LORD your God. You shall not seethe a kid in his mother's milk. 27And the LORD said to Moses, Write you these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel. 28And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote on the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
