A Call to Remember and Obey

8"Be careful to obey all the commands I am giving you today. Then you will live and multiply, and you will enter and occupy the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors.H4687H6680H3117H8104H6213H2421H7235H935H3423H776H3068H7650H1 2Remember how the LORD your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands.H2142H1870H3068H430H3212H705H8141H4057H6031H5254H3045H3824H8104H4687 3Yes, he humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.H6031H7456H398H4478H3045H1H3045H3045H120H2421H3899H905H4161H6310H3068H120H2421 4For all these forty years your clothes didn't wear out, and your feet didn't blister or swell.H8071H1086H7272H1216H705H8141 5Think about it: Just as a parent disciplines a child, the LORD your God disciplines you for your own good.H3045H5973H3824H376H3256H1121H3068H430H3256 6"So obey the commands of the LORD your God by walking in his ways and fearing him.H8104H4687H3068H430H3212H1870H3372 7For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land of flowing streams and pools of water, with fountains and springs that gush out in the valleys and hills.H3068H430H935H2896H776H776H5158H4325H5869H8415H3318H1237H2022 8It is a land of wheat and barley; of grapevines, fig trees, and pomegranates; of olive oil and honey.H776H2406H8184H1612H8384H7416H776H8081H2132H1706 9It is a land where food is plentiful and nothing is lacking. It is a land where iron is as common as stone, and copper is abundant in the hills.H776H834H398H3899H3808H4544H2637H776H68H1270H2042H2672H5178 10When you have eaten your fill, be sure to praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.H398H7646H1288H3068H430H2896H776H5414 11"But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the LORD your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today.H8104H7911H3068H430H8104H4687H4941H2708H6680H3117 12For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in,H398H7646H1129H2896H1004H3427 13and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, be careful!H1241H6629H7235H3701H2091H7235H7235 14Do not become proud at that time and forget the LORD your God, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt.H3824H7311H7911H3068H430H3318H776H4714H1004H5650 15Do not forget that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock!H3212H1419H3372H4057H8314H5175H6137H6774H4325H3318H4325H6697H2496 16He fed you with manna in the wilderness, a food unknown to your ancestors. He did this to humble you and test you for your own good.H398H4057H4478H1H3045H6031H5254H3190H319 17He did all this so you would never say to yourself, 'I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.'H559H3824H3581H6108H3027H6213H2428 18Remember the LORD your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.H2142H3068H430H5414H3581H6213H2428H6965H1285H7650H1H3117 19"But I assure you of this: If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods, worshiping and bowing down to them, you will certainly be destroyed.H7911H7911H3068H430H1980H310H312H430H5647H7812H5749H3117H6H6 20Just as the LORD has destroyed other nations in your path, you also will be destroyed if you refuse to obey the LORD your God.H1471H3068H6H6440H6H6118H8085H6963H3068H430
