Deuteronomy 8

BBE 1 Take care to keep all the orders which I give you today, so that you may have life and be increased and go in and take as a heritage the land which the Lord, by his oath to your fathers, undertook to give you. NIV 1 Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors. BBE 2 And keep in mind the way by which the Lord your God has taken you through the waste land these forty years, so that he might make low your pride and put you to the test, to see what was in your heart and if you would keep his orders or not. NIV 2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. BBE 3 And he made low your pride and let you be without food and gave you manna for your food, a thing new to you, which your fathers never saw; so that he might make it clear to you that bread is not man's only need, but his life is in every word which comes out of the mouth of the Lord. NIV 3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. BBE 4 Through all these forty years your clothing did not get old or your feet become tired. NIV 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. BBE 5 Keep in mind this thought, that as a son is trained by his father, so you have been trained by the Lord your God. NIV 5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you. BBE 6 Then keep the orders of the Lord your God, fearing him and walking in his ways. NIV 6 Observe the commands of the LORD your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. BBE 7 For the Lord your God is guiding you into a good land, a land of water-springs, of fountains, and deep streams flowing out from the valleys and the hills; NIV 7 For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land—a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; BBE 8 A land of grain and vines and fig-trees and fair fruits; a land of oil-giving olive-trees and honey; NIV 8 a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; BBE 9 Where there will be bread for you in full measure and you will be in need of nothing; a land where the very stones are iron and from whose hills you may get copper. NIV 9 a land where bread will not be scarce and you will lack nothing; a land where the rocks are iron and you can dig copper out of the hills. BBE 10 And you will have food enough and be full, praising the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. NIV 10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. BBE 11 Then take care that you are not turned away from the Lord your God and from keeping his orders and decisions and laws which I give you this day: NIV 11 Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. BBE 12 And when you have taken food and are full, and have made fair houses for yourselves and are living in them; NIV 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, BBE 13 And when your herds and your flocks are increased, and your stores of silver and gold, and you have wealth of every sort; NIV 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, BBE 14 Take care that your hearts are not lifted up in pride, giving no thought to the Lord your God who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house; 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. BBE 15 Who was your guide through that great and cruel waste, where there were poison-snakes and scorpions and a dry land without water; who made water come out of the hard rock for you; NIV 15 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. BBE 16 Who gave you manna for your food in the waste land, a food which your fathers had never seen; so that your pride might be broken and your hearts tested for your good in the end; NIV 16 He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you. BBE 17 Say not then, in your hearts, My power and the strength of my hands have got me this wealth. NIV 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” BBE 18 But keep in mind the Lord your God: for it is he who gives you the power to get wealth, so that he may give effect to the agreement which he made by his oath with your fathers, as at this day. 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 ancestors, as it is today. BBE 19 And it is certain that if at any time you are turned away from the Lord your God, and go after other gods, to be their servants and to give them worship, destruction will overtake you. 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. BBE 20 Like the nations which the Lord is cutting off before you, so you will be cut off; because you would not give ear to the voice of 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.
