Deuteronomy 29:9-14, 30:11-20: Choosing Covenant
30:17. But if your heart turns away and you give no heed, and are lured into the worship and service of other gods,
30:18. I declare to you this day that you shall certainly perish; you shall not long endure on the soil which you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.
30:19. I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day: I have put before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life-if you and your offspring would live-
30:20. by loving the LORD your God, heeding His commands, and holding fast to Him. For thereby you shall have life and shall long endure upon the soil that the LORD your God swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to give to them.
