1'And when all these words have come true for you -- the blessing and the curse, which I have offeredyou -- if you meditate on them in your heart wherever among the nations Yahweh your God has driven you, 2if you return to Yahweh your God, if with al your heart and with all your soul you obey his voice, youand your children, in everything that I am laying down for you today, 3then Yahweh your God wil bring back your captives, he will have pity on you and gather you backfrom al the peoples among whom Yahweh your God has scattered you. 4Should you have been banished to the very sky's end, Yahweh your God will gather you again evenfrom there, wil come there to reclaim you 5and bring you back to the country which belonged to your ancestors, so that you may possess it inyour turn, and be made prosperous there and more numerous than your ancestors. 6'Yahweh your God wil circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, so that you wil loveYahweh your God with all your heart and soul, and so wil live. 7Yahweh your God wil make al these curses recoil on your foes and on your enemies who havepersecuted you. 8And once again you will obey the voice of Yahweh your God and you wil put all his commandmentsinto practice, which I am laying down for you today. 9Yahweh your God wil make you prosper in al your labours, in the offspring of your body, in the yieldof your cattle and in the yield of your soil. For once again Yahweh will delight in your prosperity as he used totake delight in the prosperity of your ancestors, 10if you obey the voice of Yahweh your God, by keeping his commandments and decrees written in thebook of this Law, and if you return to Yahweh your God with all your heart and soul. 11'For this Law which I am laying down for you today is neither obscure for you nor beyond your reach. 12It is not in heaven, so that you need to wonder, "Who wil go up to heaven for us and bring it down tous, so that we can hear and practise it?" 13Nor is it beyond the seas, so that you need to wonder, "Who will cross the seas for us and bring itback to us, so that we can hear and practise it?" 14No, the word is very near to you, it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to put into practice. 15'Look, today I am offering you life and prosperity, death and disaster. 16If you obey the commandments of Yahweh your God, which I am laying down for you today, if youlove Yahweh your God and fol ow his ways, if you keep his commandments, his laws and his customs, you willlive and grow numerous, and Yahweh your God wil bless you in the country which you are about to enter andmake your own. 17But if your heart turns away, if you refuse to listen, if you let yourself be drawn into worshipping othergods and serving them, 18I tel you today, you will most certainly perish; you will not live for long in the country which you arecrossing the Jordan to enter and possess. 19Today, I call heaven and earth to witness against you: I am offering you life or death, blessing orcurse. Choose life, then, so that you and your descendants may live,20in the love of Yahweh your God, obeying his voice, holding fast to him; for in this your life consists,and on this depends the length of time that you stay in the country which Yahweh swore to your ancestorsAbraham, Isaac and Jacob that he would give them.'
