ALL athe commandments which I command thee this day bshall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.

And he humbled thee, and esuffered thee to hunger, and ffed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
A land of wheat, and barley, kand vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land 1of oil olive, and honey;
And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
Who qled thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were rfiery serpents, and sscorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
But thou shalt vremember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
And it shall be, wif thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
