6:13 You must revere the Lord your God, serve him, and take oaths using only his name. 6:14 You must not go after other gods, those 1 of the surrounding peoples, 6:15 for the Lord your God, who is present among you, is a jealous God and his anger will erupt against you and remove you from the land. 2
Exhortation to Obey the Lord Exclusively
6:16 You must not put the Lord your God to the test as you did at Massah. 3 6:17 Keep his 4 commandments very carefully, 5 as well as the stipulations and statutes he commanded you to observe. 6:18 Do whatever is proper 6 and good before the Lord so that it may go well with you and that you may enter and occupy the good land that he 7 promised your ancestors, 6:19 and that you may drive out all your enemies just as the Lord said.
