Deuteronomy 8:2; Deuteronomy 8:11; Deuteronomy 8:15; Deuteronomy 8:18
Remember how the your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands.
“But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today.
Do not forget that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock!
Remember the your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.
