Great mercies promised unto the repentent.
Deuteronomy 30:1 When all these wordes are come vpon the, the blessynge and the curse which I haue set before the, thou shalt turne vnto thine hert, amonge all the nacyons whether the Lorde thy God hath thruste the, Deuteronomy 30:2 and come agayne vnto the Lorde thy God, and herken vnto his voyce in all these thynges that I commaunde the thys daye: thou & thy chyldren wythall thyne herte and all thy soule: Deuteronomy 30:3 And the Lord thy God wyll turne thy captiuite, and haue compassyon vpon the, & wyll turne, and fet the agayne from all the nacions, amonge whych the Lorde thy God shall haue scatered the. Deuteronomy 30:4 Though thou wast cast vnto the extreme partes of heauen: euen from thence wyll the Lorde thy God gether the, & from thence wyll he fett the, Deuteronomy 30:5 & the Lorde thy God wyll brynge the into the lande whych thy fathers possessed, & thou shalt enioye it. And he wyll shewe the kyndnesse, and multiplie the aboue thy fathers. Deuteronomy 30:6 And the Lorde thy God wyll circumcyse thyne hert, and the hert of thy seed, that þu mayest loue the Lord thy God wythall thyne hert, and all thy soule, þt thou mayst lyue. Deuteronomy 30:7 And the Lord thy God wyll put all these curses vpon thyne enemyes, and on them þt hate the, & þt persecute the. Deuteronomy 30:8 But thou shalt turne, and herken vnto the voyce of the Lorde, and do all hys commaundementes, which I commaunde the thys daye. Deuteronomy 30:9 And the Lord thy God wyll make the plenteous in all the workes of thyne hande, in the frute of thy bodye, and in the frute of thy catell, and in the frute of thy lande for thy welth. For the Lorde wyll turne agayne and reioyse ouer the to do the good, as he reioysed ouer thy fathers: Deuteronomy 30:10 If thou herken onely vnto the voyce of the Lord thy God, to kepe his commaundementes and his ordinaunces whych are wrytten in the boke of this lawe, and yf thou turne vnto the Lorde thy God wythall thyne hert and all thy soule.
The commandment is manifest.
Deuteronomy 30:11 For the commaundement which I commaunde the this daye, is not separated from the, nether farre of. Deuteronomy 30:12 It is not in heauen, that thou neadest to saye: who shall go vp for vs to heauen, and fet it vs, that we maye heare it, and do it? Deuteronomy 30:13 Nether is it beyonde the see: that thou shuldest saye: who shall go ouer the see for vs, and fet it vs, þt we maye heare it, and do it? Deuteronomy 30:14 But the worde is very nye vnto the: euen in thy mouth and in thyne hert, that thou do it.
Life and death are set before them.
Deuteronomy 30:15 Beholde I haue set before the this daye lyfe and good, death and euell: Deuteronomy 30:16 For where as I commaunde the thys daye, to loue the Lorde thy God, to walke in hys wayes, and to kepe hys commaundementes, his ordinaunces, and hys lawes (yf thou so do) þu shalt lyue and multiplye, and the Lorde thy God shall blesse the in þt lande, whether thou goest to possesse it. Deuteronomy 30:17 But and yf thyne herte turne awaye, so that þu wylt not heare: but shalt goo astraye, and worshyppe straunge goddes, and serue them, Deuteronomy 30:18 I pronounce vnto you also this daye, that ye shall surely perysh, and that ye shall not prolonge youre dayes vpon the lande whether thou passest ouer Iordan, to go and possesse it. Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heauen & erth to recorde this daye agaynst you, that I haue set before you lyfe and death, blessynge & cursynge: Therfore chose lyfe, that both thou and thy seed maye lyue, Deuteronomy 30:20 that þu mayest loue the Lorde thy God, and be obedient to hys voyce, & cleaue vnto him. For he is thy lyfe, and the length of thy dayes, that thou mayst dwell vpon the erth whych the Lorde sware vnto thy fathers: Abraham, Isahac and Iacob, to geue them.
