"Do not make idols or set up carved images, sacred pillars, or shaped stones to be worshiped in your land. I, the LORD, am your God.
You must keep my Sabbath days of rest and show reverence for my sanctuary. I am the LORD.
"If you keep my laws and are careful to obey my commands,
I will send the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees will produce their fruit.
Your threshing season will extend until the grape harvest, and your grape harvest will extend until it is time to plant grain again. You will eat your fill and live securely in your land.
"I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep without fear. I will remove the wild animals from your land and protect you from your enemies.
