Deuteronomy Chapter 8

Moses further exhorts to obedience.

8:1 All the instruction which I urge y’all this day shall y’all observe to do, that y’all may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware to your fathers.
8:2 And you will remember all the way which the LORD your God led y’all these forty years in the wilderness, to humble y’all, [and] to prove y’all, to know what [was] in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or not.
8:3 And he humbled y’all, and suffered y’all to hunger, and fed y’all with manna, which you knew not, neither did your fathers know ; that he might make y’all know that man does not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD does man live.
8:4 Your clothes do not wear upon y’all, neither did your foot swell, these forty years.
8:5 You will also consider in your heart, that, as a man disciplines his son, [so] the LORD your God disciplines y’all.
8:6 Therefore you will keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to revere him.
8:7 For the LORD your God brings y’all into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills ;
8:8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates ; a land of olive trees, and honey ;
8:9 A land wherein you will eat bread without scarceness, you will not lack any [thing] in it; a land whose stones [are] iron, and out of whose hills you may dig brass.
8:10 When you have eaten and are full, then you will bless the LORD your God for the good land which he has given y’all.
8:11 Beware that you forget not the LORD your God, in not keeping his commandments, and his laws, and his rules, which I instruct y’all this day
8:12 Unless [when] you have eaten and are full, and have built goodly houses, and dwelt [therein];
8:13 And [when] your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold is multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied ;
8:14 Then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God, which brought y’all forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage ;
8:15 Who led y’all through that great and terrible wilderness, [wherein were] fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where [there was] no water ; who brought y’all forth water out of the rock of flint ;
8:16 Who fed y’all in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers knew not, that he might humble y’all, and that he might prove y’all, to do y’all good at your latter end;
8:17 And you say in your heart, My power and the might of [mine] hand has gotten me this wealth.
8:18 But you will remember the LORD your God for [it is] he that gives y’all power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware to your fathers, as [it is] this day.
8:19 And it shall be, if you do at all forget the LORD your God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that y’all shall certainly perish.
8:20 As the nations which the LORD destroys before your face, so shall y’all perish ; because y’all would not be obedient to the voice of the LORD your God.
