Bible: Deuteronomy 8:2-6
8:2 Remember the whole way by which he 1 has brought you these forty years through the desert 2 so that he might, by humbling you, test you to see if you have it within you to keep his commandments or not. 8:3 So he humbled you by making you hungry and then feeding you with unfamiliar manna. 3 He did this to teach you 4 that humankind 5 cannot live by bread 6 alone, but also by everything that comes from the
Lord’s mouth. 7 8:4 Your clothing did not wear out nor did your feet swell all these forty years. 8:5 Be keenly aware that just as a parent disciplines his child, 8 the Lord your God disciplines you. 8:6 So you must keep his 9 commandments, live according to his standards, 10 and revere him.
