12 And now, O Israel, what does Jehovah your God ask of you except that you fear Jehovah your God so that you would walk in all His ways and love Him and serve Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul;
13 So that you would keep the commandments of Jehovah and His statutes, which I am commanding you today, for your good.
14 Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens belong to Jehovah your God, the earth and all that is in it.
15 But on your fathers Jehovah set His affection to love them and to choose their seed after them, that is, you above all the peoples, as it is this day.
16 Circumcise then the foreskin of your heart, and do not be stiff-necked any longer;
17 For it is Jehovah your God who is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who does not regard persons and does not take bribes;
18 He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and He loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.
19 Therefore love the sojourner, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
20 You shall fear Jehovah your God; Him shall you serve and to Him shall you hold fast and by His name shall you swear.
21 He is your praise and He is your God, who has done these great and awesome things for you, which your eyes have seen.
22 Your fathers went down into Egypt as seventy souls; and now Jehovah your God has made you as the stars of heaven in multitude.
1 Therefore you shall love Jehovah your God and keep His charge and His statutes and His judgments and His commandments always.
2 And realize today that I am speaking not with your sons, who do not know and who have not seen the discipline of Jehovah your God, His greatness, His mighty hand and His outstretched arm;
3 And His signs and works, which He did in the midst of Egypt against Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and against all his land;
4 And what He did to Egypt’s forces, to their horses and to their chariots, when He caused the water of the Red Sea to flow over them while they were pursuing you; and Jehovah made them perish to this day;
5 And what He did for you in the wilderness until you came to this place;
6 And what He did to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben, when the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up and their households and their tents and all their substance that went with them, from the midst of all Israel.
7 But it is your eyes that have seen all the great work of Jehovah which He did.
8 Therefore you shall keep the whole commandment which I am commanding you today so that you may be strong and that you may go in and possess the land into which you are crossing over to possess,
9 And so that you may extend your days upon the ground which Jehovah swore to your fathers, to give to them and to their seed, a land flowing with milk and honey.
10 For the land which you are entering in to possess is not like the land of Egypt, from which you came forth, where you used to sow your seed and water by foot as in a vegetable garden.
11 But the land into which you are crossing over to possess is a land of mountains and valleys; by virtue of heaven’s rain, it drinks in water.
12 It is a land which Jehovah your God cares for; always the eyes of Jehovah your God are upon it, from the beginning of the year even to the end of the year.
13 And if you are certain to listen to my commandments, which I am commanding you today, to love Jehovah your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul,
