Deuteronomy 30:17 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 30:17

But if thine heart turn away
From the true God, and the right worship of him, and from his commands, statutes, and judgments:

so that thou wilt not hear;
the voice of the Lord and obey it, or hearken to his laws, and do them:

but shalt be drawn away;
by an evil heart, and by the ill examples of others:

and worship other gods and serve them;
the gods of the Gentiles, the idols of the people, besides the one living and true God, the God of Israel.

Deuteronomy 30:17 In-Context

15 "Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, between life and death.
16 If you obey the commands of the Lord your God, which I give you today, if you love him, obey him, and keep all his laws, then you will prosper and become a nation of many people. The Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are about to occupy.
17 But if you disobey and refuse to listen, and are led away to worship other gods,
18 you will be destroyed - I warn you here and now. You will not live long in that land across the Jordan that you are about to occupy.
19 I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God's blessing and God's curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life.
