“Remember all the way that Adonai led you in the wilderness these forty years” (Deuteronomy 8:2)
Can we imagine remembering everything that happened to us in the last 40 years? Try to remember what happened to you in the last 40 years? Hope we can be as thankful as the Israelites were, for the food we ate every day, for the clothes we wear, for our shoes, for all the miracles of every day!
Moses tells the Israelites that if they follow God’s laws, the nations who now dwell across the Jordan River will not harm them. (7:12–26)
Moses reminds the people of the virtues of keeping God’s commandments. He also tells them that they will dispossess those who now live in the Land only because they are idolatrous, not because the Israelites are uncommonly virtuous. Thereupon, Moses reviews all of the trespasses of the Israelites against God. (8:1–10:11)
Moses says that the Land of Israel will overflow with milk and honey if the people obey God’s commandments and teach them to their children. (10:12–11:25)[And if You] Obey [These Rules]
And if you do obey these rules and observe them carefully, the Eternal your God will maintain faithfully for you the covenant made on oath with your fathers. – Deuteronomy 7:12
