Great mercies promised unto the repentent.
Deuteronomy 30:1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things shall come in upon theethe blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee,and thou shalt bring them back unto thy heart, among all the nations whither Yahweh thy God hath driven thee; Deuteronomy 30:2 and thou shalt return unto Yahweh thy God, and shalt hearken unto his voice, according to all that I am commanding thee today,thou and thy sons, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, Deuteronomy 30:3 then will Yahweh thy God bring back thy captivity and have compassion upon thee,and return and gather thee, from among all the peoples whither Yahweh thy God hath scattered thee. Deuteronomy 30:4 Though thou be driven out unto the utmost part of the heavens, from thence, will Yahweh thy God gather thee, and, from thence, will he fetch thee; Deuteronomy 30:5 and Yahweh thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it,and he will do thee good and multiply thee, beyond thy fathers. Deuteronomy 30:6 And Yahweh thy God will circumcise thy heart, and the heart of thy seed,to love Yahweh thy God, with all thy heart and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. Deuteronomy 30:7 And Yahweh thy God will put all these oaths upon thine enemies and upon them who hated thee, who persecuted thee. Deuteronomy 30:8 But, thou, wilt return, and hearken unto the voice of Yahweh,and wilt do all his commandments, which I am commanding thee, today. Deuteronomy 30:9 And Yahweh thy God will make thee pre-eminent, in every work of thy handin the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, for good,for Yahweh will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: Deuteronomy 30:10 if thou hearken unto the voice of Yahweh thy God, to keep his commandments, and his statutes, which are written in this scroll of the law,if thou return unto Yahweh thy God, with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
The commandment is manifest.
Deuteronomy 30:11 For, as touching this commandment, which I am commanding thee today, it is not, too wonderful, for thee, neither is it, far off. Deuteronomy 30:12 It is, not in the heavens,that thou shouldest sayWho shall ascend for us into the heavens, that he may fetch it for us, that we may hear it, and do it? Deuteronomy 30:13 Neither is it, over the sea,that thou shouldest say, Who will pass over for us, to the other side of the sea, that he may fetch it for us, that we may hear it, and do it? Deuteronomy 30:14 But, near unto thee, is the word, exceedingly,in thy mouth and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
Life and death are set before them.
Deuteronomy 30:15 See! I have set before thee, today, life and prosperity,and death and calamity; Deuteronomy 30:16 for thou must keep the commandments of Yahweh thy God, which I am commanding thee, today, to love Yahweh thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes, and his regulations,so shalt thou live and multiply, and Yahweh thy God will bless thee, in the land which thou art entering to possess. Deuteronomy 30:17 But, if thy heart shall turn away, and thou wilt, not hearken,but shalt be drawn away, and shalt bow thyself down to other gods, and serve them, Deuteronomy 30:18 I declare unto you, today, that ye shall perish,ye shall not prolong your days, upon the soil which thou art passing over the Jordan to enter and possess. Deuteronomy 30:19 I call to witness against you today, the heavens and the earth, that life and death, have I set before thee, the blessing and the curse,therefore shouldest thou choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed; Deuteronomy 30:20 to love Yahweh thy God, to hearken unto his voice, and to cleave unto him,for, he, is thy life, and thy length of days, that thou mayest abide upon the soil which Yahweh sware to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob, to give unto them.
