People out of the Land of Egypt, afterward Destroyed them that Believed Not.

6 And the Angels which kept not their first Estate, but left their own Habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting Chains under Darkness, unto the Judgment of the Great Day.

Heb. II.

Ver. i 'T'HEREFORE we ought to give the more EarA Nest Heed to the Things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them Slip.

2 For if the Word spoken by Ancels was Stedfast, and every Transgression and Disobedience received a just Recompence of Reward.

3 How shall we Escape if we Neglect so great SalVation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him.

4 God also bearing them witness, both with Signs and Wonders, and with divers Miracles, and Gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own Will.

Heb. III.

Ver. 5 "\ JCOSES was Faithful in all his House as a jLVJL Servant, for a Testimony of those Things which were to be spoken after;

6 But Christ as a Son over his own House: whose House are we, if we hold fast the Confidence, and the Rejoycing of the Hope Firm unto the End.

7 Wherefore as the Holy Ghost faith, To-day if ye will bear his Voice,

8 Harden Not your Hearts, as in the Provocation, in the Day of Temptation in the Wilderness:

9 When your Fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my Works forty Years.

10 Wherefore I was grieved with that Generation, and said, They do al way err in their Heart; and they have not known my Ways.

11 So I sware in my Wrath, They shall not enter into my Rest.

12 Take heed, Brethren, lest there be in any of you an Evil Heart of Unbelief in Departing from the LiVing God.

13 But exhort one another daily while it is called, To

day; day; lest: any of you be Hardned through the DeceitFulness of Sin.

14 For we are made Partakers of Christ, if we Hold the Beginning of our Confidence sTEDFAST.unto the End;

15 While it is said, To-day if ye will hear his Voice, harden not your Hearts, as in the Provocation.

16 For some when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit, not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty Years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose Carcases fell in the Wilderness.

18 And to whom sware he that they mould not enter into his Rest, but to them that Believed Not.

19 So we fee that they could not enter in, because of Unbelief.

O R, ,:

The Repetition of the LAW.


I Moses in the End of the fortieth Year briefly rebearfeth the Stonyy 6 of God'j Promise; 34 and his Anger for their Incredulity, 41 and Disobedience.

ter. 1

HE SE be the Words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side Jordan in the Wilderness, in the Plain over against the Red Sea.

3 And it came to pass in the ForTieth Year, in the eleventh Month, on the first Day of the Month, that Moses spake unto the 'Children Children of Israel, according unto all that the Lord had given him in Commandment Unto them.


4 After he had slain Sihon the King of the Amorites, and Og the King of Bafhan.

5 On this side Jordan, in the Land of Moab, began Moses to declare this Law, saying,

6 The Lord our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this Mount:

7 Turn you, and take your Journey, and go to the Mount of the Amorites, and by the Sea-fide, to the Land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great River the River Euphrates.

8 Behold, I have set the Land before you: go in and Possess the Land which the Lord sware unto your Fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them, and to their Seed after them.

9 And I spake unto you at that Time, saying, I am not able to bear you myself alone:

10 The Lord your God hath multiplied you, and behold you are this Day as the Stars of Heaven for MulTitude.

11 (The Lord God of your Fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and Bless you as he hath Promised you)

12 How can I myself alone bear your Cumbrance, and your Burden, and your Strife?

13 Take ye Wise Men and understanding, and known among your Tribes, and I will make them Rulers over you.

14 And ye answered me, and said, The Thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do.

15 So I took the chief of your Tribes, wife Men and known, and made them Heads over you, Captains over thousands, and Captains over hundreds, and Captains over fifties, and Captains over tens, and Officers among your Tribes.

16 And I charged your Judges at that Time, faying, Hear the Causes between your Brethren, and Judge RighTeously between every Man and his Brother, and the Stranger that is with him.

2 z And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send Men before us, and they shall search us out the Land, and bring us word again by what Way we must go up, and into what Cities we shall come.

23 And the Saying pleased me well: and I took twelve Men of you, one of a Tribe.

24. And they turned and went up into the Mountain, and came unto the Valley of Eshcol, and searched it out.

25 And they took of the Fruit of the Land in their Hands, and brought it down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, It is a Good Land, which the Lord our God doth Give us.
