Deuteronomy 10:12 - 10:22

Circumcise Your Heart

12 “So now, Israel, what does Yahweh your God ask from you, but to fear Yahweh your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve Yahweh your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
13 and to keep the commandments of Yahweh and His statutes which I am commanding you today for your good? 14 Behold, to Yahweh your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it. 15 Yet on your fathers did Yahweh set His affection to love them, and He chose their seed after them, even you above all peoples, as it is this day. 16 So circumcise your heart, and stiffen your neck no longer. 17 For Yahweh your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the fearsome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. 18 He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows love for the sojourner by giving him food and clothing. 19 So show love for the sojourner, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt. 20 Yahweh your God you shall fear; Him you shall serve, and to Him you shall cling, and by His name you shall swear. 21 He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done these great and fearsome things for you which your eyes have seen. 22 Your fathers went down to Egypt seventy persons in all, and now Yahweh your God has made you as numerous as the stars of heaven.
