8 All the commandments which I command thee this day ashall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers. 2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee bthese forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and cto prove thee, dto know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. 3 And he humbled thee, and esuffered thee to hunger, and ffed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that gman doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. 4 hThy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years. 5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man ichasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee. 6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, kto walk in his ways, and to fear him. 7 For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, la land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; 8 A land of wheat, and barley, mand vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land †of oil olive, and honey; 9 A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land nwhose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. 10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: 12 oLest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; 13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; 14 pThen thine heart be lifted up, and thou qforget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; 15 Who rled thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were sfiery serpents, and tscorpions, and udrought, where there was no water; vwho brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; 16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with wmanna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, xto do thee good at thy latter end; 17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. 18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: yfor it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, zthat he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. 19 And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk aafter other gods, and serve them, and worship them, bI testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. 20 As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, cso shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.
