The Privileges of the Covenant

4:1 Now, Israel, pay attention to the statutes and ordinances1 I am about to teach you, so that you might live and go on to enter and take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors,2 is giving you. 4:2 Do not add a thing to what I command you nor subtract from it, so that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God that I am delivering to3 you. 4:3 You have witnessed what the Lord did at Baal Peor,4 how he5 eradicated from your midst everyone who followed Baal Peor.6 4:4 But you who remained faithful to the Lord your God are still alive to this very day, every one of you. 4:5 Look! I have taught you statutes and ordinances just as the Lord my God told me to do, so that you might carry them out in7 the land you are about to enter and possess. 4:6 So be sure to do them, because this will testify of your wise understanding8 to the people who will learn of all these statutes and say, “Indeed, this great nation is a very wise9 people.” 4:7 In fact, what other great nation has a god so near to them like the Lord our God whenever we call on him? 4:8 And what other great nation has statutes and ordinances as just10 as this whole law11 that I am about to share with12 you today?
