"The LORD heard your request and said to me, 'I have heard what the people have said to you, and they are right.
Oh, that they would always have hearts like this, that they might fear me and obey all my commands! If they did, they and their descendants would prosper forever.
Go and tell them to return to their tents.
But you stay here with me so I can give you all my commands, laws, and regulations. You will teach them to the people so they can obey them in the land I am giving to them as their inheritance.'"
So Moses told the people, "You must obey all the commands of the LORD your God, following his instructions in every detail.
Stay on the path that the LORD your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy.
