Deuteronomy 27
King James Bible: Purple Letter Edition
1And Moses, with the elders of Israel, commanded the people, saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day. 2And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over the Jordan unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, that thou shalt set thee up great stones, and plaster them with plaster; 3And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee. 4Therefore, it shall be when ye be gone over the Jordan, that ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in Mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaster them with plaster. 5And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones; thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them. 6Thou shalt build the altar of the LORD thy God of whole stones, and thou shalt offer burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD thy God: 7And thou shalt offer peace offerings, and shalt eat there, and rejoice before the LORD thy God. 8And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly.

9And Moses and the priests, the Levites, spoke unto all Israel, saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel: this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God. 10Thou shalt, therefore, obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do His commandments and His statutes, which I command thee this day.

11And Moses charged the people the same day, saying, 12These shall stand upon Mount Gerizim to bless the people, when ye are come over the Jordan: Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin: 13And these shall stand upon Mount Ebal to curse: Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.

14And the Levites shall speak, and say unto all the men of Israel with a loud voice, 15Cursed be the man who maketh any carved {graven} or melted {molten} image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen. 16Cursed be he who dishonoreth {setteth light by} his father or his mother. And all the people shall say, Amen. 17Cursed be he who removeth his neighbor's landmark. And all the people shall say, Amen. 18Cursed be he who maketh the blind to wander out of the way. And all the people shall say, Amen. 19Cursed be he who perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen. 20Cursed be he who lieth with his father's wife; because he uncovereth his father's skirt. And all the people shall say, Amen. 21Cursed be he who lieth with any manner of beast. And all the people shall say, Amen. 22Cursed be he who lieth with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother. And all the people shall say, Amen. 23Cursed be he who lieth with his mother-in-law. And all the people shall say, Amen. 24Cursed be he who smiteth his neighbor secretly. And all the people shall say, Amen. 25Cursed be he who taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen. 26Cursed be he who confirmeth not all the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.
