Deuteronomy 8
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Remember the LORD Your God

1All the commands which I command thee this day ye shall watch to do, so that ye shall live and multiply and go in and possess the land which Jehovah sware to your fathers. 2And remember thou all the way which Jehovah thy God caused thee to go this forty years in the desert in order to humble thee, to try thee, to know what is in thy heart, whether thou shalt watch his commands or not. 3And he will humble thee, and cause thee to hunger, and will give thee to eat manna which thou knewest not, and thy fathers knew not; so that he caused thee to know that upon bread only man shall not live, but upon all going out of the mouth of Jehovah shall man live. 4Thy garments decayed not from thee, and thy feet swelled not this forty years. 5And know thou with thy heart that as a man will chastise his son, Jehovah thy God chastises thee. 6And watch thou the commands of Jehovah thy God, to go in his ways and to fear him. 7For Jehovah thy God brings thee to a good land, a land of torrents of water, fountains, and depths going forth in the valley and in the mountain; 8A land of wheat and barley and the vine and the fig tree and the pomegranate, a land of the olive tree, of oil and honey; 9A land where thou shalt eat bread in it not with poverty; thou shalt not want any thing in it; a land whose stones, iron, and out of its mountains thou shalt hew out brass. 10And thou atest and wert satisfied, and didst bless Jehovah thy God for the good land which he gave to thee.

11Watch to thyself lest thou shalt forget Jehovah thy God, not watching his commands and his judgments and his laws which I command thee this day: 12Lest thou shalt eat and thou wert satisfied, and thou wilt build good houses and thou dwelt; 13And thy cattle and thy sheep shall multiply, and thy silver and thy gold shall multiply to thee, and all which is in thee shall multiply; 14And thy heart was lifted up and thou didst forget Jehovah thy God bringing thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servants; 15He causing thee to go in the great and fearful desert, the fiery serpent and the scorpion, and a thirsty land, where is no water: he bringing forth to thee water from the rock of flint; 16He giving thee to eat manna in the desert which thy fathers knew not, in order to humble thee, and in order to try thee to do thee good in thy lost state: 17And thou saidst in thy heart, My strength and the bone of my handmade for me this wealth. 18And remember Jehovah thy God; for he gave to thee strength to make wealth in order to set up his covenant, which he sware to our fathers, as this day. 19And it was, if forgetting, thou shalt forget Jehovah thy God, and thou wentest after other gods, and served them and worshipped to them, I testified against you this day, that perishing, ye shall perish. 20As the nations which Jehovah destroys before you, so shall ye be destroyed, because ye will not hear to the voice of Jehovah your God.
