Deuteronomy 8
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"Keep and do all of the commandments that I command you today, that you will live and multiply and enter and inherit the land that LORD JEHOVAH swore to your forefathers. 2And you shall remember all the way that LORD JEHOVAH your God led you, behold, forty years in the wilderness, so that He would humble you and he would test you and because He would know what is in your heart, if you would keep His commandments or if not. 3And he humbled you and he famished you and he fed you manna that you had not known, neither had your fathers known it, that He would show you that it is not by bread only a son of man lives, but by everything that comes out of the mouth of LORD JEHOVAH a person lives. 4Your clothes are not worn out from you and your feet were not bare, behold, forty years. 5And that you will know in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so LORD JEHOVAH your God disciplines you. 6Keep the commandments of LORD JEHOVAH your God and walk in his ways and be in awe of him. 7Because LORD JEHOVAH your God brings you into the good land, the land of the torrents of waters and the springs and the depths that come forth in the plain and in the mountains; 8A land of wheat and of barley and of vines and of figs and of pomegranates, a land of olives and of oil and of honey; 9You will eat bread in it, a land without poverty, and nothing will be lacking in it, a land whose stones are iron and from its mountains you will quarry copper. 10And you will eat and you will be satisfied and you will bless LORD JEHOVAH your God in the good land that He gives to you.

11Pay attention to yourselves lest you forget LORD JEHOVAH your God, but keep his commandments and his judgments and his laws that I command you today: 12Lest when you eat and you are filled and you build beautiful houses and you settle down; 13And your sheep and your oxen will be multiplied and silver and gold will be multiplied to you and all that you have will be multiplied; 14Your heart will be exalted and you will forget LORD JEHOVAH your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; 15And he led you in the great and awesome wilderness, a place of serpents, dragons and scorpions, and a place of drought where there is no water; he brought out waters for you from the rock of flint; 16And he fed you manna in the wilderness, that your fathers had not known, that you would be humbled and he would test you and it would be good for you at your end; 17And you will say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have possessed for me these riches.’ 18Remember LORD JEHOVAH your God, for it is He who gives you power that you may gain wealth, to confirm his covenant that He swore to your fathers as today. 19And if you forget LORD JEHOVAH your God and you go after other gods, and you will serve them and you will worship them, I testify to you today that you shall certainly be destroyed. 20As the nations which LORD JEHOVAH destroyed from before you, so you will perish, unless you listen to the voice of LORD JEHOVAH your God.”
