Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:1 - You must love the LORD your God and do what he requires; keep his statutes, ordinances, and commandments at all times.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:2 - Bear in mind today that I am not speaking to your children who have not personally experienced the judgments of the LORD your God, which revealed his greatness, strength, and power.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:3 - They did not see the awesome deeds he performed in the midst of Egypt against Pharaoh king of Egypt and his whole land,
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:4 - or what he did to the army of Egypt, including their horses and chariots, when he made the waters of the Red Sea overwhelm them while they were pursuing you and he annihilated them.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:5 - They did not see what he did to you in the desert before you reached this place,
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:6 - or what he did to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when the earth opened its mouth in the middle of the Israelite camp and swallowed them, their families, their tents, and all the property they brought with them.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:7 - I am speaking to you because you are the ones who saw all the great deeds of the LORD!

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:10 - For the land where you are headed is not like the land of Egypt from which you came, a land where you planted seed and which you irrigated by hand like a vegetable garden.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:11 - Instead, the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy is one of hills and valleys, a land that drinks in water from the rains,

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:13 - Now, if you pay close attention to my commandments that I am giving you today and love the LORD your God and serve him with all your mind and being,
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:14 - then he promises, "I will send rain for your land in its season, the autumn and the spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine, and olive oil.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:15 - I will provide pasture for your livestock and you will eat your fill."
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:16 - Make sure you do not turn away to serve and worship other gods!
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:17 - Then the anger of the LORD will erupt against you and he will close up the sky so that it does not rain. The land will not yield its produce, and you will soon be removed from the good land that the Lord is about to give you.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:18 - Fix these words of mine into your mind and being, and tie them as a reminder on your hands and let them be symbols on your forehead.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:19 - Teach them to your children and speak of them as you sit in your house, as you walk along the road, as you lie down, and as you get up.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:20 - Inscribe them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:21 - so that your days and those of your descendants may be extended in the land which the LORD promised to give to your ancestors, like the days of heaven itself.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:22 - For if you carefully observe all of these commandments I am giving you and love the LORD your God, live according to his standards, and remain loyal to him,
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:23 - then he will drive out all these nations ahead of you, and you will dispossess nations greater and stronger than you.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:24 - Every place you set your foot will be yours; your border will extend from the desert to Lebanon and from the River (that is, the Euphrates) as far as the Mediterranean Sea.

Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:26 - Take note - I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse:
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:27 - the blessing if you take to heart the commandments of the LORD your God that I am giving you today,
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:28 - and the curse if you pay no attention to his commandments and turn from the way I am setting before you today to pursue other gods you have not known.
Unchecked Copy BoxDeu 11:29 - When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess, you must pronounce the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal.
