1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come
upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou
shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God
hath driven thee,
2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt
obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy
children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
3 That then the
LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will
return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath
4 If any of thine be driven out unto the
outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee,
and from thence will he fetch thee:
5 And the LORD 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 the
LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the
LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies,
and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
8 And thou shalt
return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I
command thee this day.
9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous
in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy
cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice
over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
10 If thou shalt
hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his
statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto
the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is
not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.
12 It is
not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and
bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
13 Neither is
it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us,
and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
14 But the word is
very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and
16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to
walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his
judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless
thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
17 But if thine
heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and
worship other gods, and serve them;
18 I denounce unto you this day,
that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your
days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set
before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that
both thou and thy seed may live:
20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy
God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave
unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou
mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to
Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
