I have not eaten any of the sacred portion while I was in mourning, nor have I removed any of it while I was unclean,1 nor have I offered any of it to the dead. I have obeyed the LORD my God; I have done everything you commanded me.
Look down from heaven,2 your holy dwelling place, and bless3 your people Israel and the land you have given us as you promised on oath to our forefathers, a land flowing with milk and honey."
The LORD your God commands you this day to follow these decrees and laws; carefully observe them with all your heart and with all your soul.417
You have declared this day that the LORD is your God and that you will walk in his ways, that you will keep his decrees, commands and laws, and that you will obey him.518
And the LORD has declared this day that you are his people, his treasured possession6 as he promised, and that you are to keep all his commands.
He has declared that he will set you in praise,7 fame and honor high above all the nations8 he has made and that you will be a people holy9 to the LORD your God, as he promised.
