Deuteronomy 8:13-20

NLT 13 and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, NIV 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, NLT 14 that is the time to be careful. Do not become proud at that time and forget the LORD your God, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. NIV 14 then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. NLT 15 Do not forget that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock! NIV 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful desert, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. NLT 16 He fed you with manna in the wilderness, a food unknown to your ancestors. He did this to humble you and test you for your own good. NIV 16 He gave you manna to eat in the desert, something your fathers had never known, to humble and to test you so that in the end it might go well with you. NLT 17 He did it so you would never think that it was your own strength and energy that made you wealthy. NIV 17 You may say to yourself, "My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me." NLT 18 Always remember that it is the LORD your God who gives you power to become rich, and he does it to fulfill the covenant he made with your ancestors. NIV 18 But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. NLT 19 "But I assure you of this: If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods, worshiping and bowing down to them, you will certainly be destroyed. NIV 19 If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. NLT 20 Just as the LORD has destroyed other nations in your path, you also will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God. NIV 20 Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God.
