Deuteronomy 301And it shall come to pass when all these things shall have come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before your face, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations in which the Lord has scattered you, 2and shall return to the Lord your God, and shall hearken to His voice, according to all things which I command you this day, with all your heart, and with all your soul; 3then the Lord shall heal your iniquities, and shall pity you, and shall again gather you out from all the nations, among which the Lord has scattered you. 4If your dispersion be from one end of heaven to the other, from there the Lord your God shall gather you, and from there the Lord your God shall take you. 5And the Lord your God shall bring you in from there into the land which your fathers have inherited, and you shall inherit it; and He will do you good, and multiply you above your fathers. 6And the Lord shall purge your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live. 7And the Lord your God will put these curses upon your enemies, and upon those that hate you, who have persecuted you. 8And you shall return and hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and shall keep His commands, all that I charge you this day. 9And the Lord your God shall bless you in every work of your hands, in the offspring of your body, and in the offspring of your cattle, and in the fruits of your land, because the Lord your God will again rejoice over you for good, as He rejoiced over your fathers, 10if you will hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments, and His statutes, and His judgments written in the book of this law, if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul. 11For this command which I give you this day is not grievous, neither is it far from you. 12It is not in heaven above, as if there were one saying, Who shall go up for us into heaven, and shall take it for us, and we will hear and do it? 13Neither is it beyond the sea, saying, Who will go over for us to the other side of the sea, and take it for us, and make it audible to us, and we will do it? 14The word is very near you, in your mouth, and in your heart, and in your hands, to do it. 15Behold, I have set before you this day life and death, good and evil. 16If you will hearken to the commands of the Lord your God which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to keep His statutes, and His judgments; then you shall live, and shall be many in number, and the Lord your God shall bless you in all the land into which you go to inherit it. 17But if your heart should change, and you will not hearken, and you shall go astray and worship other gods, and serve them, 18I declare to you this day, that you shall utterly perish, and you shall by no means live long upon the land into which you go over the Jordan to inherit it. 19I call both heaven and earth to witness this day against you, I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: choose life, that you and your seed may live; 20to love the Lord your God, to hearken to His voice, and cleave to Him; for this is your life, and the length of your days, that you should dwell upon the land, which the Lord swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them.
