Serve the Lord your God so that He may turn His fierce wrath away from you, NIV 8 Do not be stiff-necked, as your ancestors were; submit to the LORD. Come to his sanctuary, which he has consecrated forever. Serve the LORD your God, so that his fierce anger will turn away from you.

For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful; He will not turn [His] face away from you if you return to Him."
