But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it
thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor
thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor
any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy
manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.
But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God in the place
which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy

the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto
the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the
widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me:
I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten

befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness;
for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I

brought them into the land which I sware.
For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt
yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you;
and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil
in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of
