And Moses still continued, Remember that all the hardship and suffering, all the smitings and loss of loved ones over the past forty years have all really just been a prolonged test by God to make sure that the Hebrews deserved Its love, deserved to be chosen. And through it all, you’ve learned to love and fear God, right?
So don’t forget the hard times and the lessons when you’re prosperous and comfortable on the other side of the Jordan. If you do, you might stray from God’s ways, and then It will smite you. It might even find a new chosen people to genocide you.
