2 Moses summoned all Israel and said to them: You have seen all that the Lord did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land,
3the great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, and those great wonders.
4But to this day the Lord has not given you a mind to understand, or eyes to see, or ears to hear.
5I have led you for forty years in the wilderness. The clothes on your back have not worn out, and the sandals on your feet have not worn out;
6you have not eaten bread, and you have not drunk wine or strong drinkso that you may know that I am the Lord your God.
7When you came to this place, King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan came out against us for battle, but we defeated them.
8We took their land and gave it as an inheritance to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
9Therefore diligently observe the words of this covenant, in order that you may succeed in everything that you do.
10 You stand assembled today, all of you, before the Lord your Godthe leaders of your tribes, your elders, and your officials, all the men of Israel,
11your children, your women, and the aliens who are in your camp, both those who cut your wood and those who draw your water
12to enter into the covenant of the Lord your God, sworn by an oath, which the Lord your God is making with you today;
13in order that he may establish you today as his people, and that he may be your God, as he promised you and as he swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
14I am making this covenant, sworn by an oath, not only with you who stand here with us today before the Lord our God,
15but also with those who are not here with us today.
