Deuteronomy 8


8:1 All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye
 observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and
 possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers.
8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God
 hath led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble
 thee, [and] to prove thee, to know what [was] in thy heart,
 whether thou wouldst keep his commandments, or not.
8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed
 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.
8:4 Thy raiment hath not become old upon thee, neither hath thy
 foot swelled these forty years.
8:5 Thou shalt also consider in thy heart, that as a man
 chasteneth his son, [so] the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
8:6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy
 God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
8:7 For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land
 of brooks of water, of fountains, and depths that spring out of
 valleys and hills;
8:8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig-trees, and
 pomegranates, a land of olive-oil, and honey;
8:9 A land in which thou shalt eat bread without scarceness,
 thou shalt not lack any [thing] in it, a land whose stones
 [are] iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.
8:10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless
 the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
8:11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not
 keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes,
 which I command thee this day:
8:12 Lest [when] thou hast eaten, and art full, and hast built
 goodly houses, and dwelt [in them];
8:13 And [when] thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy
 silver and thy gold are increased, and all that thou hast is
 increased;
8:14 Then thy heart shall be lifted up, and thou shalt forget
 the LORD thy God (who brought thee out of the land of Egypt,
 from the house of bondage;)
8:15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness,
 [in which were] fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drouth,
 where [there was] no water; who brought thee forth water out of
 the rock of flint;
8:16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy
 fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might
 prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end.
8:17 And thou shalt say in thy heart, My power and the might of
 my hand hath gotten me this wealth.
8:18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he
 that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his
 covenant which he swore to thy fathers, as [it is] this day.
8:19 And it shall be, if thou shalt 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.
8:20 As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face,
 so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient to the
 voice of the LORD your God.
