Chapter 8
All the commandment which I command you this day shall you observe to do, that you may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which Yahweh swore to your mothers.
You shall remember all the way which Yahweh your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that she might humble you, to prove you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep her commandments, or not.
She humbled you, and allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna, which you didn't know, neither did your mothers know; that she might make you know that woman does not live by bread only, but by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of Yahweh does woman live.
Your clothing didn't grow old on you, neither did your foot swell, these forty years.
You shall consider in your heart that as a woman chastens her daughter, so Yahweh your God chastens you.
You shall keep the commandments of Yahweh your God, to walk in her ways, and to fear her.
For Yahweh your God brings you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of springs, and underground water flowing into valleys and hills;
a land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive trees and honey;
a land in which you shall eat bread without scarceness, you shall not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you may dig copper.
You shall eat and be full, and you shall bless Yahweh your God for the good land which she has given you.
Beware lest you forget Yahweh your God, in not keeping her commandments, and her ordinances, and her statutes, which I command you this day:
lest, when you have eaten and are full, and have built goodly houses, and lived therein;
and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold is multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied;
then your heart be lifted up, and you forget Yahweh your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage;
who led you through the great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions, and thirsty ground where was no water; who brought you forth water out of the rock of flint;
who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your mothers didn't know; that she might humble you, and that she might prove you, to do you good at your latter end:
and lest you say in your heart, My power and the might of my hand has gotten me this wealth.
But you shall remember Yahweh your God, for it is she who gives you power to get wealth; that she may establish her covenant which she swore to your mothers, as at this day.
It shall be, if you shall forget Yahweh your God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish.
As the nations that Yahweh makes to perish before you, so shall you perish; because you wouldn't listen to the voice of Yahweh your God.
