Deuteronomy 30

Studie

1 And it shall be, that all these things shall come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have put before thee, and thou shalt return to thy heart, in all the nations whither Jehovah thy God has expelled thee.

2 And thou shalt return even·​·to Jehovah thy God, and shalt hearken to His voice, according·​·to all that I command thee today, thou and thy sons, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul;

3 and Jehovah thy God will turn·​·back thy captivity, and have·​·compassion·​·on thee, and will return and bring· thee ·together from all the peoples, whither Jehovah thy God has scattered thee.

4 If any of thine be expelled to the end parts of the heavens, from thence will Jehovah thy God bring· thee ·together, and from thence will He fetch thee;

5 and Jehovah thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and He will do· thee ·good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.

6 And Jehovah thy God will circumcise thy heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love Jehovah thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, so·​·that thou mayest live.

7 And Jehovah thy God will put all these curses on thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, who persecuted thee.

8 And thou shalt return and hearken to the voice of Jehovah, and do all His commandments which I command thee today.

9 And Jehovah thy God will make thee excel in every work of thy hand, in the fruit of thy belly, and in the fruit of thy beasts, and in the fruit of thy ground, for good; for Jehovah will return to have·​·joy over thee for good, as He had·​·joy over thy fathers:

10 when thou obey the voice of Jehovah thy God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the Law, and when thou return to Jehovah thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul.

11 For this commandment which I command thee today, is not too wonderful for thee, neither is it far·​·off.

12 It is not in the heavens, to say, Who shall go·​·up for us to the heavens, and fetch it for us, that we may hear it, and do it?

13 Neither is it across the sea, to say, Who shall cross the sea for us, and fetch it for us, that we may hear it, and do it?

14 But the Word is very near to thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, to do it.

15 See, I have put before thee today life and good, and death and evil;

16 in that I command thee today to love Jehovah thy God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments; and thou shalt live and multiply; and Jehovah thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou come to possess it.

17 But if thy heart turn, and thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

18 I tell you today, that perishing you shall perish, you shall not prolong your days upon the ground, whither thou cross·​·over the Jordan to go·​·in to possess it.

19 I call· the heavens and the earth ·to·​·testify today against you, that I have put before thee life and death, blessing and cursing; and choose life, so·​·that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed:

20 to love Jehovah thy God, to obey His voice, and to stick to Him; for He is thy lives*, and the length of thy days, to dwell on the ground which Jehovah promised to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
