Deuteronomy 30:15-17 New English Translation (NET Bible)

15 “Look! I have set before you today life and prosperity on the one hand, and death and disaster on the other. 16 What[a] I am commanding you today is to love the Lord your God, to walk in his ways, and to obey his commandments, his statutes, and his ordinances.

  1. Deuteronomy 30:16 tc A number of LXX mss insert before this verse, “if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God,” thus translating אֲשֶׁר (ʾasher) as “which” and the rest as “I am commanding you today, to love,” etc., “then you will live,” etc.
  2. Deuteronomy 30:16 tn Heb “which you are going there to possess it.” This has been simplified in the translation for stylistic reasons.
  3. Deuteronomy 30:17 tn Heb “your heart,” as a metonymy for the person.
