Today’s F260 Bible reading:  Deuteronomy 6-7

6:1 Now these are the commandments, statutes, and ordinances that the Lord your God instructed me to teach you so that you may carry them out in the land where you are headed 2and that you may so revere the Lord your God that you will keep all his statutes and commandments that I am giving you—you, your children, and your grandchildren—all your lives, to prolong your days. 3Pay attention, Israel, and be careful to do this so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in number—as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, said to you, you will have a land flowing with milk and honey. 4Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! 5You must love the Lord your God with your whole mind, your whole being, and all your strength. 6These words I am commanding you today must be kept in mind, 7and you must teach them to your children and speak of them as you sit in your house, as you walk along the road, as you lie down, and as you get up. 8You should tie them as a reminder on your forearm and fasten them as symbols on your forehead. 9Inscribe them on the doorframes of your houses and gates. 10Then when the Lord your God brings you to the land he promised your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to give you—a land with large, fine cities you did not build, 11houses filled with choice things you did not accumulate, hewn-out cisterns you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—and you eat your fill, 12be careful not to forget the Lord who brought you out of Egypt, that place of slavery. 13You must revere the Lord your God, serve him, and take oaths using only his name. 14You must not go after other gods, those of the surrounding peoples, 15for the Lord your God, who is present among you, is a jealous God—his anger will erupt against you and remove you from the land. 16You must not put the Lord your God to the test as you did at Massah. 17Keep his commandments very carefully, as well as the stipulations and statutes he commanded you to observe. 18Do whatever is proper and good before the Lord so that it may go well with you and that you may enter and occupy the good land that he promised your ancestors, 19and that you may drive out all your enemies just as the Lord said. 20When your children ask you later on, “What are the stipulations, statutes, and ordinances that the Lord our God commanded you?” 21you must say to them, “We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt, but the Lord brought us out of Egypt in a powerful way. 22And he brought signs and great, devastating wonders on Egypt, on Pharaoh, and on his whole family before our very eyes. 23He delivered us from there so that he could give us the land he had promised our ancestors. 24The Lord commanded us to obey all these statutes and to revere him so that it may always go well for us and he may preserve us, as he has to this day. 25We will be innocent if we carefully keep all these commandments before the Lord our God, just as he demands.” 7:1 When the Lord your God brings you to the land that you are going to occupy and forces out many nations before you—Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, seven nations more numerous and powerful than you— 2and he delivers them over to you and you attack them, you must utterly annihilate them. Make no treaty with them and show them no mercy! 3You must not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, 4for they will turn your sons away from me to worship other gods. Then the anger of the Lord will erupt against you and he will quickly destroy you. 5Instead, this is what you must do to them: You must tear down their altars, shatter their sacred pillars, cut down their sacred Asherah poles, and burn up their idols. 6For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. He has chosen you to be his people, prized above all others on the face of the earth. 7It is not because you were more numerous than all the other peoples that the Lord favored and chose you—for in fact you were the least numerous of all peoples. 8Rather it is because of his love for you and his faithfulness to the promise he solemnly vowed to your ancestors that the Lord brought you out with great power, redeeming you from the place of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9So realize that the Lord your God is the true God, the faithful God who keeps covenant faithfully with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, 10but who pays back those who hate him as they deserve and destroys them. He will not ignore those who hate him but will repay them as they deserve! 11So keep the commandments, statutes, and ordinances that I today am commanding you to do. 12If you obey these ordinances and are careful to do them, the Lord your God will faithfully keep covenant with you as he promised your ancestors. 13He will love and bless you, and make you numerous. He will bless you with many children, with the produce of your soil, your grain, your new wine, your olive oil, the offspring of your oxen, and the young of your flocks in the land that he promised your ancestors to give you. 14You will be blessed beyond all peoples; there will be no barrenness among you or your livestock. 15The Lord will protect you from all sickness, and you will not experience any of the terrible diseases that you knew in Egypt; instead he will inflict them on all those who hate you. 16You must destroy all the people whom the Lord your God is about to deliver over to you; you must not pity them or worship their gods, for that will be a snare to you. 17If you think, “These nations are more numerous than I—how can I dispossess them?” 18you must not fear them. You must carefully recall what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and all Egypt, 19the great judgments you saw, the signs and wonders, the strength and power by which he brought you out—thus the Lord your God will do to all the people you fear. 20Furthermore, the Lord your God will release hornets among them until the very last ones who hide from you perish. 21You must not tremble in their presence, for the Lord your God, who is present among you, is a great and awesome God. 22He, the God who leads you, will expel the nations little by little. You will not be allowed to destroy them all at once lest the wild animals overrun you. 23The Lord your God will give them over to you; he will throw them into a great panic until they are destroyed. 24He will hand over their kings to you, and you will erase their very names from memory. Nobody will be able to resist you until you destroy them. 25You must burn the images of their gods, but do not covet the silver and gold that covers them so much that you take it for yourself and thus become ensnared by it; for it is abhorrent to the Lord your God. 26You must not bring any abhorrent thing into your house and thereby become an object of divine wrath along with it. You must absolutely detest and abhor it, for it is an object of divine wrath. (NET Bible)
