Moses finally began wrapping things up, You all have followed me for forty years and seen all the wonders I’ve performed at God’s will. We’ve defeated King Shihon and King Og. We will defeat the rest.
So everyone here gathered before me–everyone, both Hebrews and sojourners, servants and slaves, all who are listening–it is time to renew our covenant with God. You have seen God’s might and heard God’s laws. You have learned that all other gods are false idols and abominations. If any of you hereafter worship another god, then God will smite you. And if you all turn from God, It will destroy this people like It destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.
