All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye
may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your
And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty
years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine
heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which
thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man

LORD doth man live.
Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty
Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the
LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his

For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of
fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;
A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of
