The King James Version Bible

Deuteronomy 32:30-41

  1. How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?

  2. For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.

  3. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:

  4. Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.

  5. Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?

  6. To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

  7. For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.

  8. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,

  9. Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.

  10. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

  11. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.

  12. If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
