The Blessings of Obedience
8“Therefore, be careful to obey every command I am giving you today, so you may have strength to go in and take over the land you are about to enter.
13“If you carefully obey the commands I am giving you today, and if you love the Lord your God and serve him with all your heart and soul,
16“But be careful. Don’t let your heart be deceived so that you turn away from the Lord and serve and worship other gods.
18“So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders.
22“Be careful to obey all these commands I am giving you. Show love to the Lord your God by walking in his ways and holding tightly to him.
26“Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse!
29“When the Lord your God brings you into the land and helps you take possession of it, you must pronounce the blessing at Mount Gerizim and the curse at Mount Ebal.
