Deuteronomy 11:10–17

10 For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden; 11 hbut the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, 12 a land for which the Lord your God cares; ithe eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.

13 ‘And it shall be that if you earnestly 5obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, 14 then jI 6will give you the rain for your land in its season, kthe early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil. 15 lAnd I will send grass in your fields for your livestock, that you may meat and be 7filled.’ 16 Take heed to yourselves, nlest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and oserve other gods and worship them, 17 lest pthe Lord’s anger be aroused against you, and He qshut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and ryou perish quickly from the good land which the Lord is giving you.
