Deuteronomy 11
New Living Translation
11"You must love the LORD your God and obey all his requirements, decrees, regulations, and commands.H157H3068H430H8104H4931H2708H4941H4687H3117 2Keep in mind that I am not talking now to your children, who have never experienced the discipline of the LORD your God or seen his greatness and his strong hand and powerful arm.H3045H3117H1121H3045H7200H4148H3068H430H1433H2389H3027H5186H2220 3They didn't see the miraculous signs and wonders he performed in Egypt against Pharaoh and all his land.H226H4639H6213H8432H4714H6547H4428H4714H776 4They didn't see what the LORD did to the armies of Egypt and to their horses and chariots—how he drowned them in the Red Sea as they were chasing you. He destroyed them, and they have not recovered to this very day!H6213H2428H4714H5483H7393H4325H5488H3220H6687H6440H7291H310H3068H6H3117 5"Your children didn't see how the LORD cared for you in the wilderness until you arrived here.H6213H4057H935H4725 6They didn't see what he did to Dathan and Abiram (the sons of Eliab, a descendant of Reuben) when the earth opened its mouth in the Israelite camp and swallowed them, along with their households and tents and every living thing that belonged to them.H6213H1885H48H1121H446H1121H7205H776H6475H6310H1104H1004H168H3351H7272H7130H3478 7But you have seen the LORD perform all these mighty deeds with your own eyes!H5869H7200H1419H4639H3068H6213

The Blessings of Obedience

8"Therefore, be careful to obey every command I am giving you today, so you may have strength to go in and take over the land you are about to enter.H8104H4687H834H6680H3117H2388H935H3423H776H5674H3423 9If you obey, you will enjoy a long life in the land the LORD swore to give to your ancestors and to you, their descendants—a land flowing with milk and honey!H748H3117H127H3068H7650H1H5414H2233H776H2100H2461H1706 10For the land you are about to enter and take over is not like the land of Egypt from which you came, where you planted your seed and made irrigation ditches with your foot as in a vegetable garden.H776H935H3423H776H4714H3318H2232H2233H8248H7272H1588H3419 11Rather, the land you will soon take over is a land of hills and valleys with plenty of rain -H776H5674H3423H776H2022H1237H8354H4325H4306H8064 12a land that the LORD your God cares for. He watches over it through each season of the year!H776H3068H430H1875H5869H3068H430H8548H7225H8141H319H8141 13"If you carefully obey all the commands I am giving you today, and if you love the LORD your God and serve him with all your heart and soul,H8085H8085H4687H6680H3117H157H3068H430H5647H3824H5315 14then he will send the rains in their proper seasons—the early and late rains—so you can bring in your harvests of grain, new wine, and olive oil.H5414H4306H776H6256H3138H4456H622H1715H8492H3323 15He will give you lush pastureland for your livestock, and you yourselves will have all you want to eat.H5414H6212H7704H929H398H7646 16"But be careful. Don't let your heart be deceived so that you turn away from the LORD and serve and worship other gods.H8104H3824H6601H5493H5647H312H430H7812 17If you do, the LORD's anger will burn against you. He will shut up the sky and hold back the rain, and the ground will fail to produce its harvests. Then you will quickly die in that good land the LORD is giving you.H3068H639H2734H6113H8064H4306H127H5414H2981H6H4120H2896H776H3068H5414 18"So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders.H7760H1697H3824H5315H7194H226H3027H2903H5869 19Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.H3925H1121H1696H3427H1004H3212H1870H7901H6965 20Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,H3789H4201H1004H8179 21so that as long as the sky remains above the earth, you and your children may flourish in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors.H3117H7235H3117H1121H127H3068H7650H1H5414H3117H8064H776 22"Be careful to obey all these commands I am giving you. Show love to the LORD your God by walking in his ways and holding tightly to him.H8104H8104H4687H6680H6213H157H3068H430H3212H1870H1692 23Then the LORD will drive out all the nations ahead of you, though they are much greater and stronger than you, and you will take over their land.H3068H3423H1471H6440H3423H1419H1471H6099 24Wherever you set foot, that land will be yours. Your frontiers will stretch from the wilderness in the south to Lebanon in the north, and from the Euphrates River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.H4725H3709H7272H1869H4057H3844H5104H5104H6578H314H3220H1366 25No one will be able to stand against you, for the LORD your God will cause the people to fear and dread you, as he promised, wherever you go in the whole land.H376H3320H6440H3068H430H5414H6343H4172H6440H776H1869H1696 26"Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse!H7200H5414H6440H3117H1293H7045 27You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today.H1293H8085H4687H3068H430H6680H3117 28But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the LORD your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before.H7045H8085H4687H3068H430H5493H1870H6680H3117H3212H310H312H430H3045 29"When the LORD your God brings you into the land and helps you take possession of it, you must pronounce the blessing at Mount Gerizim and the curse at Mount Ebal.H3068H430H935H776H935H3423H5414H1293H2022H1630H7045H2022H5858 30(These two mountains are west of the Jordan River in the land of the Canaanites who live in the Jordan Valley, near the town of Gilgal, not far from the oaks of Moreh.)H5676H3383H310H1870H8121H3996H776H3669H3427H6160H4136H1537H681H436H4176 31For you are about to cross the Jordan River to take over the land the LORD your God is giving you. When you take that land and are living in it,H5674H3383H935H3423H776H3068H430H5414H3423H3427 32you must be careful to obey all the decrees and regulations I am giving you today.H8104H6213H2706H4941H5414H6440H3117
