Deuteronomy 32:42-47 The Message (MSG)

39-42 “Do you see it now? Do you see that I’m the one?
        Do you see that there’s no other god beside me?
    I bring death and I give life, I wound and I heal—
        there is no getting away from or around me!
    I raise my hand in solemn oath;
        I say, ‘I’m always around. By that very life I promise:
    When I sharpen my lightning sword
        and execute judgment,
    I take vengeance on my enemies
        and pay back those who hate me.
    I’ll make my arrows drunk with blood,
        my sword will gorge itself on flesh,
    Feasting on slain and captive alike,
        the proud and vain enemy corpses.’”

43 Celebrate, nations, join the praise of his people.
        He avenges the deaths of his servants,
    Pays back his enemies with vengeance,
        and cleanses his land for his people.

44-47 Moses came and recited all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and Joshua son of Nun. When Moses had finished saying all these words to all Israel, he said, “Take to heart all these words to which I give witness today and urgently command your children to put them into practice, every single word of this Revelation. Yes. This is no small matter for you; it’s your life. In keeping this word you’ll have a good and long life in this land that you’re crossing the Jordan to possess.”
