Part Three

DEUTERONOMY Chapter Seventeen 1-13
Thou shalt not offer unto IaHUeH thy Elohim any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, even any evil thing: for that is an abomination unto IaHUeH thy Elohim.
If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which IaHUeH thy Elohim giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of IaHUeH thy Elohim, in transgressing His covenant,
And hath gone and served other elohim, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;
And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and inquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Ieshrael:
Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.
At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you.
If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which IaHUeH thy Elohim shall choose;
And thou shalt come unto the priests the Leuiim, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and inquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:
And thou shalt do according to the decision, which they of that place which IaHUeH shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they may instruct thee:
According to the instruction of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the decision which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.
And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before IaHUeH thy Elohim, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Ieshrael.
And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.

This was the form of government that IaHUeH gave to His people IeShRaEL. We were to obey His Commandments fully. The penalty for transgression was death by stoning at the hands of all the people. It is obvious that if an individual was also in transgression of IaHUeH's Law, they wouldn't be the one throwing stones. They would be dead or busy dying. In this way we were commanded to put all evil away from among us. This was justice, we were to be righteous, and not allow sin to remain with us. We were to obey IaHUeH's Commandments explicitly, and the instructions according to the Law which IaHUeH's servants the priests (Leuiim) and judges instructed.
Mosheh, IaHUeH's servant was given by IaHUeH the charge of bringing the children of IeShRaEL out of Egypt, and instructing them in IaHUeH's Law. He did according to all the instructions IaHUeH had given him, until frustrated with the murmuring of the people... he also disobeyed.

Numbers Chapter Twenty 1-13
Then came the children of Ieshrael, even the whole congregation, into the desert of Tsin in the first month: and the people abode in Qadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.
And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Mosheh and against Aharon.
And the people chode with Mosheh, and spake, saying, Would Elohim that we had died when our brethren died before IaHUeH!
And why have ye brought up the congregation of IaHUeH into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?
And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.
And Mosheh and Aharon went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the excellence of IaHUeH appeared unto them.
And IaHUeH spake unto Mosheh, saying,
Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aharon thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.
And Mosheh took the rod from before IaHUeH, as He commanded him.
And Mosheh and Aharon gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?
And Mosheh lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.
And IaHUeH spake unto Mosheh and Aharon, Because ye believed Me not, to singularize Me in the eyes of the children of Ieshrael therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Ieshrael strove with IaHUeH, and He was singularized in them.

IaHUShuA'  the son of Nun was given by IaHUeH the charge of bringing the children of IeShRaEL into the promised land, and dividing the inheritance.

IaHUShuA'  (Josh.) Chapter Twenty-Three
And it came to pass a long time after that IaHUeH had given rest unto Ieshrael from all their enemies round about, that IaHUShuA'  waxed old and stricken in age.
And IaHUShuA'  called for all Ieshrael, and for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers, and said unto them, I am old and stricken in age:
And ye have seen all that IaHUeH your Elohim hath done unto all these nations because of you; for IaHUeH your Elohim is He that hath fought for you.
Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Iarden, with all the nations that I have cut off, even unto the great sea westward.
And IaHUeH your Elohim, He shall expel them from before you, and drive them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess their land, as IaHUeH your Elohim hath promised unto you.
Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Mosheh, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;
That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their elohim, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: But cleave unto IaHUeH your Elohim, as ye have done unto this day.
For IaHUeH hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.
One man of you shall chase a thousand: for IaHUeH your Elohim, He it is that fighteth for you, as He hath promised you.
Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love IaHUeH your Elohim.
Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:
Know for a certainty that IaHUeH your Elohim will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which IaHUeH your Elohim hath given you.
And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which IaHUeH your Elohim spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof.
Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which IaHUeH your Elohim promised you; so shall IaHUeH bring upon you all evil things, until He have destroyed you from off this good land which IaHUeH your Elohim hath given you.
When ye have transgressed the covenant of IaHUeH your Elohim, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other elohim, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of IaHUeH be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.

Chapter Twenty-Four
And IaHUShuA'  gathered all the tribes of Ieshrael to Shechem, and called for the elders of Ieshrael, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before Elohim.
And IaHUShuA'  said unto all the people, Thus saith IaHUeH Elohim of Ieshrael, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other elohim.
And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Ietschaq.
And I gave unto Ietschaq, Ia'aqob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Ia'aqob and his children went down into Egypt.
I sent Mosheh also and Aharon, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.
And when they cried unto IaHUeH, He put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.
And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Iarden; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.
Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Ieshrael, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
And ye went over Iarden, and came unto Iericho: and the men of Iericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Iebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.
And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
Now therefore fear IaHUeH, and serve Him in sincerity and in Truth: and put away the elohim which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye IaHUeH.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve IaHUeH, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the elohim which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the elohim of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve IaHUeH.

In other words, if you will not Truly Serve IaHUeH (sincerely and exclusively), you will Have to serve the "mighty ones" of the nations.

And the people answered and said, Elohim forbid that we should forsake IaHUeH, to serve other elohim;
For IaHUeH our Elohim, He it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:
And IaHUeH drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve IaHUeH; for He is our Elohim.
And IaHUShuA'  said unto the people, Ye cannot serve IaHUeH: for He is a Singular Elohim; He is a jealous Elohim; He will not accept your transgressions nor your sins.
If ye forsake IaHUeH, and serve strange elohim, then He will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that He hath done you good.
And the people said unto IaHUShuA', Nay; but we will serve IaHUeH.
And IaHUShuA'  said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you IaHUeH, to serve Him. And they said, We are witnesses.
Now therefore put away, said he, the strange elohim which are among you, and incline your heart unto IaHUeH Elohim of Ieshrael.
And the people said unto IaHUShuA', IaHUeH our Elohim will we serve, and His voice will we obey.
So IaHUShuA'  made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.

And IaHUShuA'  wrote these words in the book of the law of Elohim, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the Set Apart place of IaHUeH.
And IaHUShuA'  said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of IaHUeH which He spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your Elohim.
So IaHUShuA'  let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.
And it came to pass after these things, that IaHUShuA'  the son of Nun, the servant of IaHUeH, died, being an hundred and ten years old.
And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in TimnathCheres, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.
And Ieshrael served IaHUeH all the days of IaHUShuA', and all the days of the elders that overlived IaHUShuA', and which had known all the works of IaHUeH, that He had done for Ieshrael.
And the bones of Ioseph, which the children of Ieshrael brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Ia'aqob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Ioseph.
And El'azar the son of Aharon died; and they buried him in a hill that pertained to Phinehas his son,
which was given him in mount Ephraim.
