And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
You have seen it: for you behold mischief and spite, to repay it with your hand: the poor commits himself unto you; you are the helper of the fatherless.
See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil;
I call heaven and earth as witness this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live:
I have chosen the way of truth: your judgments have I laid before me.
Let your hand help me; for I have chosen your precepts.
Let us choose for us justice: let us know among ourselves what is good.
Should it be according to your mind? he will recompense it, whether you refuse, or whether you choose; and not I: therefore declare what you know.
What man is he that fears the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate beforehand what you shall answer:
Esteeming the reproach of the Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he looked for the recompense of the reward.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
