unto the other; and there you shall serve other elohim, which neither you nor your fathers
have known, wood and stone.

have rest: but YHWH shall give you there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow
of mind:

shall have no assurance of your life:

Deu 29:2 And Moshe called unto all Yisra’el, and said unto them, You have seen all that YHWH
did before your eyes in the land of Mitzrayim unto Par’oh, and unto all his servants, and
unto all his land;
Deu 29:3 The great temptations which your eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:
Deu 29:4 Yet YHWH has not given you a heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear,
unto this day.
Deu 29:5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon
you, and your shoe is not waxed old upon your foot.

might know that I am YHWH your Elohim.

that you do.
