The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752


This Book is called DEUTERONOMY, which signifies a SECOND LAW, because
it repeats and inculcates the ordinances formerly given on mount Sinai,
with other precepts not expressed before. The Hebrews, from the first
words in the book, call it ELLE HADDEBARIM.

Deuteronomy Chapter 1

A repetition of what passed at Sinai and Cadesbarne: and of the people's
murmuring and their punishment.

1:1. These are the words, which Moses spoke to all Israel beyond the
Jordan, in the plain wilderness, over against the Red Sea, beetween
Pharan and Thophel and Laban and Haseroth, where there is very much

1:2. Eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir to

1:3. In the fortieth year, the eleventh month, the first day of the
month, Moses spoke to the children of Israel all that the Lord had
commanded him to say to them:

1:4. After that he had slain Sehon king of the Amorrhites, who dwelt in
Hesebon: and Og king of Basan who abode in Astaroth, and in Edrai,

1:5. Beyond the Jordan in the land of Moab. And Moses began to expound
the law, and to say:

1:6. The Lord our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying: You have stayed long
enough in this mountain:

1:7. Turn you, and come to the mountain of the Amorrhites, and to the
other places that are next to it, the plains and the hills and the vales
towards the south, and by the sea shore, the land of the Chanaanites,
and of Libanus, as far as the great river Euphrates.

1:8. Behold, said he, I have delivered it to you: go in and possess it,
concerning which the Lord swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob, that he would give it to them, and to their seed after them.

1:9. And I said to you at that time:

1:10. I alone am not able to bear you: for the Lord your God hath
multiplied you, and you are this day as the stars of heaven, for

1:11. (The Lord God of your fathers add to this number many thousands,
and bless you as he hath spoken.)

1:12. I alone am not able to bear your business, and the charge of you
and your differences.

1:13. Let me have from among you wise and understanding men, and such
whose conversation is approved among your tribes, that I may appoint
them your rulers.

1:14. Then you answered me: The thing is good which thou meanest to do.

1:15. And I took out of your tribes men wise and honourable, and
appointed them rulers, tribunes, and centurions, and officers over
fifties, and over tens, who might teach you all things.

1:16. And I commanded them, saying: Hear them, and judge that which is
just: whether he be one of your country, or a stranger.

1:17. There shall be no difference of persons, you shall hear the little
as well as the great: neither shall you respect any man's person,
because it is the judgment of God. And if any thing seem hard to you,
refer it to me, and I will hear it.
