The Bible in Its Traditions

Deuteronomy 8:1–6

M S Sam

All the commandment 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 YHWH swore unto your fathers.

Ye shall observe to do all the commands which I charge you to-day, that ye may live and be multiplied, and enter in and inherit the land, which the Lord your God sware to give to your fathers.

“All the commandments which I am entrusting to you this day, take care to observe them diligently, so that you may live and be multiplied, and so that, upon entering, you may possess the land, about which the Lord swore to your fathers.

M G Sam

And thou shalt remember all the way which YHWH thy God hath led thee these forty years in the wilderness, that He might afflict thee, to prove thee, to know what was in thy heart, whether thou wouldest keep His commandments, or no.

And you shall remember the entire journey along which the Lord your God led you, for forty years through the desert, to afflict you, and to test you, and to make known the things that were turning in your soul, whether or not you would keep his commandments.

M G Sam

And He afflicted 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 thing that proceedeth out of the mouth of YHWH doth man live.

He afflicted you with need, and he gave you Manna as your food, which neither you nor your fathers knew, so as to reveal to you that it is not by bread alone that man lives, but by every word that goes forth from the mouth of God.

And he humbled you and suffered you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know; that he might make you to understand that man does not live by bread alone; but by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD does man live.

M Sam

Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.

Thy garments grew not old from off thee, thy shoes were not worn from off thee, thy feet were not painfully hardened, lo! these forty years.

M G Sam

And thou shalt consider in thy heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so YHWH thy God chasteneth thee.

so that you would recognize in your heart that, just as a man educates his son, so has the Lord your God educated you.

You must know in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, so the LORD your God disciplines you.

S Sam

And thou shalt keep the commandments of YHWH thy God, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him.

So may you keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and walk in his ways, and fear him.

Therefore you must keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to walk in his ways and fear him.
