Deuteronomy 8:10-20

Rotherham(i) 10 So then thou shalt eat and be satisfied,—and bless Yahweh thy God, for the good land which he hath given unto thee. 11 Take heed to thyself, lest thou forget Yahweh thy God,—so as not to keep his commandments and his regulations and his statutes, which I am commanding thee to-day; 12 lest thou eat, and be satisfied,—and goodly houses, thou build and inhabit; 13 and thy herd and thy flock, increase, and silver and gold, increase unto thee,—and all that thou hast, increase; 14 and so thy heart be lifted up,—and thou forget Yahweh thy God, who brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt out of the house of servants; 15 who caused thee to journey through the great and terrible desert, of fiery serpents and scorpions, and thirsty wastes where was no water,—who brought forth for thee water out of the flinty rock; 16 who fed thee with manna in the desert, which thy fathers had not known,—that he might humble thee, and that he might put thee to the proof, to do thee good in thy hereafter, 17 and lest thou shouldest say in thy heart,—Mine own strength and the might of mine own hand, have gotten me this wealth. 18 But thou shalt remember Yahweh thy God, that it was, he, who had been giving thee strength to get wealth,—that so he might establish his covenant which he sware to thy fathers as at this day. 19 But it shall be if thou forget, Yahweh thy God, and go after ether gods, and serve them, and bow thyself down to them, I testify against you to-day, that ye shall perish: 20 like the nations which, Yahweh, is causing to perish from before you, so, shall ye perish, because ye would not hearken unto the voice of Yahweh your God.
