Deuteronomy 11:13 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 11:13

And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently
unto my commandments which I command you this day
In the name, and by the authority of the Lord, the only lawgiver:

to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart, and
with all your soul;
see ( Deuteronomy 10:12 ) . Jarchi interprets this of prayer; but it is not to be restrained to that only, but includes the whole service of God, in all the parts of it, performed from a principle of love to him, and in sincerity and truth.

Deuteronomy 11:13 In-Context

11 Rather, the land you will soon take over is a land of hills and valleys with plenty of rain—
12 a land that the LORD your God cares for. He watches over it through each season of the year!
13 “If you carefully obey the commands I am giving you today, and if you love the LORD your God and serve him with all your heart and soul,
14 then he will send the rains in their proper seasons—the early and late rains—so you can bring in your harvests of grain, new wine, and olive oil.
15 He will give you lush pastureland for your livestock, and you yourselves will have all you want to eat.
