[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 1 "When you go out to battle against your enemies and see horses R658 and chariots and people more numerous than you, do R659 not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, is with you. 2 "When you are approaching the battle, the priest shall come near and speak to the people. 3 "He shall say to them, `Hear, O Israel, you are approaching the battle against your enemies today. Do not be fainthearted. Do R660 not be afraid, or panic, or tremble before them, 4 for the LORD your God is R661 the one who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.' 5 "The officers also shall speak to the people, saying, `Who is the man that has built a new house and has not dedicated R662 it? Let him depart and return to his house, otherwise he might die in the battle and another man would dedicate it. 6 `Who is the man that has planted a vineyard and has not begun F299 to use its fruit? Let him depart and return to his house, otherwise he might die in the battle and another man would F299 begin to use its fruit. 7 `And R663 who is the man that is engaged to a woman and has not married F300 her? Let him depart and return to his house, otherwise he might die in the battle and another man would F301 marry her.' 8 "Then the officers shall speak further to the people and say, `Who R664 is the man that is afraid and fainthearted? Let him depart and return to his house, so that he F302 might not make his brothers' hearts melt like his heart.' 9 "When the officers have finished speaking to the people, they shall appoint commanders of armies at the head of the people.
