Deuteronomy 8

CJB 1 "All the mitzvot I am giving you today you are to take care to obey, so that you will live, increase your numbers, enter and take possession of the land ADONAI swore about to your ancestors. 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. CJB 2 You are to remember everything of the way in which ADONAI led you these forty years in the desert, humbling and testing you in order to know what was in your heart - whether you would obey his mitzvot 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. CJB 3 He humbled you, allowing you to become hungry, and then fed you with man, which neither you nor your ancestors had ever known, to make you understand that a person does not live on food alone but on everything that comes from the mouth of ADONAI. 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. CJB 4 During these forty years the clothing you were wearing didn't grow old, and your feet didn't swell up. NIV 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. CJB 5 Think deeply about it: ADONAI was disciplining you, just as a man disciplines his child. NIV 5 Know then in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you. CJB 6 So obey the mitzvot of ADONAI your God, living as he directs and fearing him. NIV 6 Observe the commands of the LORD your God, walking in obedience to him and revering him. CJB 7 For ADONAI your God is bringing you into a good land, a land with streams, springs and water welling up from the depths in valleys and on hillsides. 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; CJB 8 It is a land of wheat and barley, grapevines, fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey; NIV 8 a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey; CJB 9 a land where you will eat food in abundance and lack nothing in it; a land where the stones contain iron and the hills can be mined for 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. CJB 10 So you will eat and be satisfied, and you will bless ADONAI 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. CJB 11 "Be careful not to forget ADONAI your God by not obeying his mitzvot, rulings and regulations that I am giving you today. 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. CJB 12 Otherwise, after you have eaten and are satisfied, built fine houses and lived in them, NIV 12 Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, CJB 13 and increased your herds, flocks, silver, gold and everything else you own, NIV 13 and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, CJB 14 you will become proud-hearted. Forgetting ADONAI your God - who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you lived as slaves; 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. CJB 15 who led you through the vast and fearsome desert, with its poisonous snakes, scorpions and waterless, thirsty ground; who brought water out of flint 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. CJB 16 who fed you in the desert with man, unknown to your ancestors; all the while humbling and testing you in order to do you 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. CJB 17 you will think to yourself, 'My own power and the strength of my own hand have gotten me this wealth.' NIV 17 You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” CJB 18 No, you are to remember ADONAI your God, because it is he who is giving you the power to get wealth, in order to confirm his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as is happening even today. 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. CJB 19 If you forget ADONAI your God, follow other gods and serve and worship them, I am warning you in advance today that you will certainly perish. 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. CJB 20 You will perish just like the nations that ADONAI is causing to perish ahead of you, because you will not have heeded the voice of ADONAI your God." NIV 20 Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God.
