The Choice of Life or Death
11“This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you, and it is not beyond your reach.
15“Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster.
17“But if your heart turns away and you refuse to listen, and if you are drawn away to serve and worship other gods,
19“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
