Verses that speak to me19 I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God's blessing and God's curse, and I call heaven and earth to witnes the choice you make. Choose life. 20 Love the Lord your God, obey him and be faithful to him, and then you and your descendants will live long in the land that he promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob" (Dt. 30:19-20)

Symmary of Dt.12During chapter 12 Moses tells to the people of Isreal that they are to obey all the laws they're given as they are living in the land that the Lord has provided them. Moses commanded the people to only have worship for one place, and to destroy any other places of worship they may have such as on high mountains, on hills, and under green trees. He tells them how to properly slaughter animals for food. He tells the people that they shall not consume the blood of the animal, they should let it pour on the ground as water. Moses states that by conusming blood, you will consume the life within it. The phrase is read by Moses directed to the Isrealites, that all will go well for the Isrealites and their ancestors, by obeying faithfully what Moses has commanded them. At the end of the chapter Moses says "do everyting that I have commanded you; do not add anything to it or take anything from it." (Dt. 13)

Verses that speak to me11 The command that I am giving you today is not too difficult or beyond your reach.12 It is not up in the sky. You do not have to ask, 'Who will go up and bring it down for us, so that we can hear it and obey it?' 13 Nor is it on the other side of the ocean. You do not have to ask, 'Who will go across the ocean and bring it to us, so that we may hear it and obey it?' 14 No,it is here with you. You know it and can quote it, so now obey it. (Dt. 30:11-14)
