Deuteronomy 32: 1-14, 43-47

32Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak;
   let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
2 May my teaching drop like the rain,
   my speech condense like the dew;
like gentle rain on grass,
   like showers on new growth.
3 For I will proclaim the name of the Lord;
   ascribe greatness to our God!


4 The Rock, his work is perfect,
   and all his ways are just.
A faithful God, without deceit,
   just and upright is he;
5 yet his degenerate children have dealt falsely with him,*
   a perverse and crooked generation.
6 Do you thus repay the Lord,
   O foolish and senseless people?
Is not he your father, who created you,
   who made you and established you?
7 Remember the days of old,
   consider the years long past;
ask your father, and he will inform you;
   your elders, and they will tell you.
8 When the Most High* apportioned the nations,
   when he divided humankind,
he fixed the boundaries of the peoples
   according to the number of the gods;*
9 the Lord’s own portion was his people,
   Jacob his allotted share.


10 He sustained* him in a desert land,
   in a howling wilderness waste;
he shielded him, cared for him,
   guarded him as the apple of his eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up its nest,
   and hovers over its young;
as it spreads its wings, takes them up,
   and bears them aloft on its pinions,
12 the Lord alone guided him;
   no foreign god was with him.
13 He set him upon the heights of the land,
   and fed him with* produce of the field;
he nursed him with honey from the crags,
   with oil from flinty rock;
14 curds from the herd, and milk from the flock,
   with fat of lambs and rams;
Bashan bulls and goats,
   together with the choicest wheat—
   you drank fine wine from the blood of grapes.
43 Praise, O heavens,* his people,
   worship him, all you gods!*
For he will avenge the blood of his children,*
   and take vengeance on his adversaries;
he will repay those who hate him,*
   and cleanse the land for his people.*

44 Moses came and recited all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and Joshua* son of Nun. 45When Moses had finished reciting all these words to all Israel, 46he said to them: ‘Take to heart all the words that I am giving in witness against you today; give them as a command to your children, so that they may diligently observe all the words of this law. 47This is no trifling matter for you, but rather your very life; through it you may live long in the land that you are crossing over the Jordan to possess.’
