Abide.

 

From Deut. 4-9:
listen to the statutes…
that you may live…
You shall not add to the Word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it…
Only GIVE HEED TO YOURSELF and keep your soul diligently…
make them known to your sons and grandsons…
the Lord spoke to you…
He declared to you His covenant…
So WATCH YOURSELVES CAREFULLY
so that you do not act corruptly…
And beware not to lift up your eyes…and be drawn away…
But the Lord has taken you and brought you out… to be a people for His own possession…
So WATCH YOURSELVES, that you do not forget the covenant…
For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. …
you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.  When you are in distress… you will return to the Lord your God and listen to His voice.  For the Lord your God is a compassionate God…
To you it was shown that you might know that the Lord, He is God; there is no other besides Him. …
take it to your heart, that the Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other.  So you shall keep His statutes… that it may go well with you…
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. …
because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you His covenant and His lovingkindness…
He will love you and bless you and multiply you…
You shall not dread them, for the Lord your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God. …
You shall not bring an abomination into your house… you shall utterly detest it…
He humbled you…  that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. …
the Lord your God was disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son. …
Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God…
He led you through the great and terrible wilderness… that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do good for you in the end. …
if you ever forget the Lord your God and go after other gods… you will surely perish. …
Do not say in your heart…‘Because of my righteousness the Lord has brought me in…’ for you are a stubborn people. …
Yet they are Your people, even Your inheritance, whom You have brought out by Your great power and Your outstretched arm.’
