Deuteronomy
Chapter 11

Moses exhorts to obedience

11:1 Therefore you will love the LORD your God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.
11:2 And know ya'll this day for [I speak] not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm,
11:3 And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land ;
11:4 And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots ; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow them as they pursued after you, and [how] the LORD has destroyed them unto this day ;
11:5 And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ya'll came into this place ;
11:6 And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that [was] in their possession, in the midst of all Israel
11:7 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.
11:8 Therefore shall ya'll keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ya'll may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ya'll go to possess it;
11:9 And that ya'll may prolong [your] days in the land, which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that flows with milk and honey.
11:10 For the land, whither you go in to possess it, [is] not as the land of Egypt, from where ya'll came out, where you sowed your seed, and watered [it] with your foot, as a garden of herbs
11:11 But the land, whither ya'll go to possess it, [is] a land of hills and valleys, [and] drinks water of the rain of heaven
11:12 A land which the LORD your God cares for the eyes of the LORD your God [are] always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
11:13 And it shall come to pass, if ya'll shall listen diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
11:14 That I will give [you] the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your corn, and your wine, and your oil.
11:15 And I will send grass in your fields for your cattle, that you may eat and be full.
11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ya'll turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
11:17 And [then] the LORD'S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit ; and [unless] ya'll perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD gives you.
11:18 Therefore shall ya'll lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
11:19 And ya'll shall teach them your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walkest by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
11:20 And you will write them upon the door posts of your house, and upon your gates
11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
11:22 For if ya'll shall diligently keep this commandment which I command you, to do it, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ya'll shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.
11:24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
11:25 There shall no man be able to stand before you [for] the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ya'll shall tread upon, as he has said unto you.

A Blessing and a curse.


11:26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse ;
11:27 A blessing, if ya'll obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day
11:28 And a curse, if ya'll will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ya'll have not known.
11:29 And it shall come to pass, when the LORD your God has brought ya'll in unto the land whither you go to possess it, that you will put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.
11:30 [Are] they not on the other side Jordan, by the way where the sun goes down, in the land of the Canaanites, which stay in the champaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh ?
11:31 For ya'll shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God gives you, and ya'll shall possess it, and stay therein.
11:32 And ya'll shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you this day.
