If you will fear Yahweh, and serve him, and listen to his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of Yahweh, and both you and also the king who reigns over you are followers of Yahweh your God, [well]:
"Now therefore fear Yahweh, and serve him in sincerity and in truth. Put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River, in Egypt; and serve Yahweh.
Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
It shall happen, if you shall listen diligently to the voice of Yahweh your God, to observe to do all his commandments which I command you this day, that Yahweh your God will set you on high above all the nations of the earth:
If you forsake Yahweh, and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you evil, and consume you, after he has done you good."
So I let them go after the stubbornness of their hearts, that they might walk in their own counsels.
