"Now, our God, what shall we say after this? For we have forsaken Your commandments,
"Or what great nation is there that has statutes and judgments as righteous as this whole law which I am setting before you today?
Let my tongue sing of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.
"For the lips of a priest should preserve knowledge, and men should seek instruction from his mouth; for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
"So now, in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek after all the commandments of the LORD your God so that you may possess the good land and bequeath it to your sons after you forever.
