See, today I have set before you life and prosperity, death and adversity.
For[a] I am commanding you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, statutes, and ordinances, so that you may live[b] and multiply, and the Lord your God may bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
But if your heart turns away and you do not listen and you are led astray to bow down to other gods and worship them,
I tell you today that you will certainly perish and will not live long in the land you are entering to possess across the Jordan.
I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live,
