Bible: Deuteronomy 30:8-14

30:8 You will return and obey the Lord, keeping all his commandments I am giving 1  you today. 30:9 The Lord your God will make the labor of your hands 2  abundantly successful and multiply your children, 3  the offspring of your cattle, and the produce of your soil. For the Lord your God will once more 4  rejoice over you to make you prosperous 5  just as he rejoiced over your ancestors, 30:10 if you obey the Lord your God and keep his commandments and statutes that are written in this scroll of the law. But you must turn to him 6  with your whole mind and being.

Exhortation to Covenant Obedience

30:11This commandment I am giving 7  you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it too remote. 30:12 It is not in heaven, as though one must say, “Who will go up to heaven to get it for us and proclaim it to us so we may obey it? 30:13 And it is not across the sea, as though one must say, “Who will cross over to the other side of the sea and get it for us and proclaim it to us so we may obey it? 30:14 For the thing is very near you – it is in your mouth and in your mind 8  so that you can do it.
