Great mercies promised unto the repentent.
Deuteronomy 30:1 And it shall come to passe when all these things are come vpon thee, the blessing, and the curse, which I haue set before thee, and thou shalt call [them] to minde among all the nations whither the LORD thy God hath driuen thee, Deuteronomy 30:2 And shalt returne vnto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voyce according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children with al thine heart, and with all thy soule: Deuteronomy 30:3 That then the LORD thy God will turne thy captiuitie, and haue compassion vpon thee, and wil returne and gather thee from all the nations whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. Deuteronomy 30:4 If any of thine be driuen out vnto the outmost parts of heauen, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee. Deuteronomy 30:5 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possesse it: and he will doe thee good, and multiply thee aboue thy fathers. Deuteronomy 30:6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to loue the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soule, that thou mayest liue. Deuteronomy 30:7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses vpon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee. Deuteronomy 30:8 And thou shalt returne and obey the voice of the LORD, and doe all his Commandements which I command thee this day. Deuteronomy 30:9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in euery worke of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattell, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will againe reioyce ouer thee for good, as he reioyced ouer thy fathers: Deuteronomy 30:10 If thou shalt hearken vnto the voyce of the LORD thy God to keepe his Commandements, and his Statutes which are written in this booke of the Law, [and] if thou turne vnto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soule.
The commandment is manifest.
Deuteronomy 30:11 For this Commaundement which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it farre off. Deuteronomy 30:12 It [is] not in heauen, that thou shouldest say, Who shal goe vp for vs to heauen, and bring it vnto vs, that wee may heare it, and doe it? Deuteronomy 30:13 Neither [is] it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall goe ouer the sea for vs, and bring it vnto vs, that we may heare it, and doe it? Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very nigh vnto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest doe it.
Life and death are set before them.
Deuteronomy 30:15 See, I haue set before thee this day, life and good, and death, and euill: Deuteronomy 30:16 In that I command thee this day to loue the LORD thy God, to walke in his wayes, and to keepe his Commandements, and his Statutes, and his Iudgements, that thou maiest liue and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall blesse thee in the land, whither thou goest to possesse it. Deuteronomy 30:17 But if thine heart turne away, so that thou wilt not heare, but shalt bee drawen away, and worship other gods and serue them: Deuteronomy 30:18 I denounce vnto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that yee shall not prolong your dayes vpon the land, whither thou passest ouer Iordan, to goe to possesse it. Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heauen and earth to record this day against you, that I haue set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may liue: Deuteronomy 30:20 That thou maiest loue the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey his voyce, and that thou mayest cleaue vnto him: for he [is] thy life, and the length of thy dayes, that thou mayest dwell in the land, which the LORD sware vnto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Iacob, to giue them.
