An exhortation unto obedience.
Deuteronomy 10:12 And now Israel what is it that the Lord thi God requyreth of the, but to feare the Lord thi God and to walke in all his wayes and to loue him and to serue the Lorde thy God with all thyne herte and with all thy soule, Deuteronomy 10:13 that thou kepe the commaundmentes of the Lorde ad his ordinaunces which I commaunde the this daye, for thy welth. Deuteronomy 10:14 Beholde, heauen and the heauen of heauens is the Lordes thy god, and the erth with all that therein is: Deuteronomy 10:15 only the Lorde had a lust vnto thy fathers to loue them, and therfore chose you theire seed after them off all nacyons, as it is come to passe this daye. Deuteronomy 10:16 Circumcyse therfore the foreskynne of youre hartes, and be no longer sciffnecked. Deuteronomy 10:17 For the Lorde youre God, he is God of goddes and lorde of lordes, a greate God, a myghtye and a terreble which regardeth no mans person nor taketh giftes: Deuteronomy 10:18 but doeth right vnto the fatherlesse and wedowe and loueth the straunger, to geue him fode and rayment. Deuteronomy 10:19 Loue therfore the straunger, for ye were straungers youre selues in the londe of Egipte. Deuteronomy 10:20 Thou shalt feare the Lorde thi God and serue him and cleaue vnto him ad swere by his name, Deuteronomy 10:21 for he is thi prayse ad he is thi God that hath done these greate and terreble thinges for the, which thine eyes haue sene. Deuteronomy 10:22 Thi fathers went doune in to Egipte with .lxx. soules, ad now the Lorde thi God hath made the as the starres of heauen in multitude.
