Bible: Deuteronomy 11:8-12

The Abundance of the Land of Promise

11:8 Now pay attention to all the commandments 1  I am giving 2  you today, so that you may be strong enough to enter and possess the land where you are headed, 3  11:9 and that you may enjoy long life in the land the Lord promised to give to your ancestors 4  and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. 11:10 For the land where you are headed 5  is not like the land of Egypt from which you came, a land where you planted seed and which you irrigated by hand 6  like a vegetable garden. 11:11 Instead, the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy 7  is one of hills and valleys, a land that drinks in water from the rains, 8  11:12 a land the Lord your God looks after. 9  He is constantly attentive to it 10  from the beginning to the end of the year. 11
