5因为当你们出离埃及时,他们没有带食物和水,在路上前来迎接你们;又因他们从美索不达米亚的培托尔,雇了贝敖尔的儿子巴郎来咒骂你;5because when you came forth from Egypt, they did not go out to meet you with bread and water, but instead they hired Balaam, the son of Beor, from the Pethor in Mesopotamia, to curse you.
6但是上主你的天主不但不愿听从巴郎,上主你的天主反而将咒骂变为你的祝福,因为上主你的天主爱你。6But Yahweh, your God, did not listen to Balaam and turned the curse into a blessing because Yahweh loves you.

15因为上主你的天主在你营中往来,为救护你,将你的仇人交给你,所以你的营地应当圣洁,免得他在你那里见到讨厌的事,而离弃你。15Because Yahweh, your God, walks in the midst of the camp to protect you and give your enemy into your hands; your camp must be sacred, that Yahweh may not see anything indecent in it; otherwise, he will turn away from you.

22几时你向上主你的天主许愿,不要迟延还愿,因为上主你的天主必向你追讨,你就不免有罪了。22If you make any vow to Yahweh, you shall not be late in fulfilling it for Yahweh will surely require it of you and it would be charged as sin against you.
23如果你不许愿,你就没有罪。23If you abstain from making vows, you do not commit any sin.
