Take care 1lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and 2serve other gods and worship them;
then 3the anger of the LORD will be kindled against you, and he 4will shut up the heavens, so that there will be no rain, and the land will yield no fruit, and 5you will perish quickly off the good land that the LORD is giving you.
186"You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and 7you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
208You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,
219that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, 10as long as the heavens are above the earth.
For if 11you will be careful to do all this commandment that I command you to do, loving the LORD your God, walking in all his ways, and 12holding fast to him,
then the LORD13will drive out all these nations before you, and you will 14dispossess nations greater and mightier than yourselves.
2415Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours. Your territory shall be 16from the wilderness toa the Lebanon and from the River, the river Euphrates, to the western sea.
2517No one shall be able to stand against you. The LORD your God will lay 18the fear of you and the dread of you on all the land that you shall tread, 19as he promised you.
