Deuteronomy 11 ©
Moses continueth his exhortation to obedience, from the people's personal experience of God's great works, and their future expectations in the land of promise. The character of the land; which God will render fruitful or barren according as they behave. A careful study in these words is required of them, and instruction of their children therein. Victory and an extensive territory will reward their obedience. The blessing and curse set before them.
But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.
¶For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:
And then the LORD's wrath be kindled against you, and he ushut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest vye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.
Every cplace whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto dthe uttermost sea shall your coast be.
And a hcurse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
