I am the LORD your God;3 follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.420
Keep my Sabbaths5 holy, that they may be a sign6 between us. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.7"
" 'But the children rebelled against me: They did not follow my decrees, they were not careful to keep my laws8--although the man who obeys them will live by them--and they desecrated my Sabbaths. So I said I would pour out my wrath on them and spend my anger9 against them in the desert.10
