But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it.
See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil.
I command you today, to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His ordinances, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land into which you go to possess.
But if your heart turn away and you will not hear, but are drawn away to worship other gods and serve them,
I declare to you today that you shall surely perish, and you shall not live long in the land which you pass over the Jordan to enter and possess.
I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live
And may love the Lord your God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days, that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
