Deuteronomy

The next book is a summary of events thus far on the 40 year journey to the Promised Land and a review/renewal of the Covenant.  There are many laws in this book, to establish and keep order once the Israelites have settled.  It also discusses the blessings Israel will receive if it is faithful, and the curses that will come about if it is not.


Deu 6:3-5  Hear therefore, O Israel, and be careful to do them; that it may go well with you, and that you may multiply greatly, as the LORD, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.  "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD; and you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
