Devarim/Deuteronomy  4:25 - 40

Chapter 4

25 When you beget children and grandchildren and will have been long in the Land, you will grow corrupt and make a carved image of anything, and you will do evil in the eyes of Hashem, your God, to anger Him.  26 I appoint heaven and earth this day to bear witness against you that you will surely perish quickly from the Land to which you are crossing the Jordan to possess; you shall not have lengthy days upon it, for you will be destroyed.  27 Hashem will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where Hashem will lead you.  28 There you will serve gods, the handiwork of man, of wood and stone, which do not see, and do not hear, and do not eat, and do not smell.

29 From there you will seek Hashem, your God, and you will find Him, if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.  30 When you are in distress and all these things have befallen you, at the end of days, you will return unto Hashem, your God, and hearken to His voice.  31 For Hashem, your God, is a merciful God, He will not abandon you nor destroy you, and He will not forget the covenant of your forefathers that He swore to them.  32 For inquire now regarding the early days that preceded you, from the day when Hashem created man on the earth, and from one end of heaven to the other end of heaven - Has there ever been anything like this great thing or has anything like it been heard?  33 Has a people ever heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire as you have heard, and survived?  34 Or has any god ever miraculously come to take for himself a nation from amidst a nation, with challenges, with signs, and with wonders, and with war, and with a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with greatly awesome deeds, such as everything that Hashem, your God, did for you in Egypt before your eyes?  35 You have been shown in order to know that Hashem, He is the God! There is none beside Him.

36 From heaven He caused you to hear His voice in order to teach you, and on earth He showed you His great fire, and you heard His words from the midst of the fire;  37 because He loved your forefathers, and He chose his offspring after him, and took you out before Himself with His great strength from Egypt;  38 to drive away before you nations that are greater and mightier than you, to bring you, to give you their land as an inheritance, as this very day.  39 You shall know this day and take to your heart that Hashem, He is the God — in heaven above and on the earth below — there is none other.  40 You shall observe His decrees and His commandments that I command you this day, so that He will do good to you and to your children after you, and so that you will prolong your days on the Land that Hashem, your God, gives you, for all the days.
