then I will send rain1 on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains,2 so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.
I will provide grass3 in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.416
Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.517
Then the LORD's anger6 will burn against you, and he will shut7 the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce,8 and you will soon perish9 from the good land the LORD is giving you.
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.1019
Teach them to your children,11 talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.1220
Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates,1321
so that your days and the days of your children may be many14 in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.1522
If you carefully observe16 all these commands I am giving you to follow--to love17 the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways and to hold fast18 to him--
then the LORD will drive out19 all these nations20 before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you.2124
Every place where you set your foot will be yours:22 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River23 to the western sea.a
