A Call to Return to the Lord

30"In the future, when you experience all these blessings and curses I have listed for you, and when you are living among the nations to which the LORD your God has exiled you, take to heart all these instructions.H1697H935H1293H7045H5414H6440H7725H3824H1471H3068H430H5080 2If at that time you and your children return to the LORD your God, and if you obey with all your heart and all your soul all the commands I have given you today,H7725H3068H430H8085H6963H6680H3117H1121H3824H5315 3then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes. He will have mercy on you and gather you back from all the nations where he has scattered you.H3068H430H7725H7622H7355H7725H6908H5971H3068H430H6327 4Even though you are banished to the ends of the earth, the LORD your God will gather you from there and bring you back again.H5080H7097H8064H3068H430H6908H3947 5The LORD your God will return you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will possess that land again. Then he will make you even more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors!H3068H430H935H776H1H3423H3423H3190H7235H1 6"The LORD your God will change your heart and the hearts of all your descendants, so that you will love him with all your heart and soul and so you may live!H3068H430H4135H3824H3824H2233H157H3068H430H3824H5315H2416 7The LORD your God will inflict all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate and persecute you.H3068H430H5414H423H341H8130H7291 8Then you will again obey the LORD and keep all his commands that I am giving you today.H7725H8085H6963H3068H6213H4687H6680H3117 9"The LORD your God will then make you successful in everything you do. He will give you many children and numerous livestock, and he will cause your fields to produce abundant harvests, for the LORD will again delight in being good to you as he was to your ancestors.H3068H430H3498H4639H3027H6529H990H6529H929H6529H127H2896H3068H7725H7797H2896H7797H1 10The LORD your God will delight in you if you obey his voice and keep the commands and decrees written in this Book of Instruction, and if you turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and soul.H8085H6963H3068H430H8104H4687H2708H3789H5612H8451H7725H3068H430H3824H5315

The Choice of Life or Death

11"This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you to understand, and it is not beyond your reach.H4687H6680H3117H6381H7350 12It is not kept in heaven, so distant that you must ask, 'Who will go up to heaven and bring it down so we can hear it and obey?'H8064H559H5927H8064H3947H8085H6213 13It is not kept beyond the sea, so far away that you must ask, 'Who will cross the sea to bring it to us so we can hear it and obey?'H5676H3220H559H5674H5676H3220H3947H8085H6213 14No, the message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart so that you can obey it.H1697H3966H7138H6310H3824H6213 15"Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster.H7200H5414H6440H3117H2416H2896H4194H7451 16For I command you this day to love the LORD your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the LORD your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy.H6680H3117H157H3068H430H3212H1870H8104H4687H2708H4941H2421H7235H3068H430H1288H776H935H3423 17"But if your heart turns away and you refuse to listen, and if you are drawn away to serve and worship other gods,H3824H6437H8085H5080H7812H312H430H5647 18then I warn you now that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live a long, good life in the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy.H5046H3117H6H6H748H3117H127H5674H3383H935H3423 19"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!H5749H8064H776H5749H3117H5414H6440H2416H4194H1293H7045H977H2416H2233H2421 20You can make this choice by loving the LORD your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the LORD, you will live long in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."H157H3068H430H8085H6963H1692H2416H753H3117H3427H127H3068H7650H1H85H3327H3290H5414
