CEBCommon English Bible
12Now in light of all that, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you? Only this: to revere the LORD your God by walking in all his ways, by loving him, by serving the LORD your God with all your heart and being, 13and by keeping the LORD’s commandments and his regulations that I’m commanding you right now. It’s for your own good!
14Clearly, the LORD owns the sky, the highest heavens, the earth, and everything in it. 15But the LORD adored your ancestors, loving them and choosing the descendants that followed them—you!—from all other people. That’s how things still stand now.
