1890 Darby's Translation of the Holy Scriptures (DBY)
An exhortation to obedience in regard of God's dealing with them.
8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way which Jehovah thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thy heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments or not.
8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with the manna, which thou hadst not known, and which thy fathers knew not; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread alone, but by everything that goeth out of the mouth of Jehovah doth man live.
8:4 Thy clothing grew not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
8:8 a land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig-trees, and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey;
8:9 a land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, where thou shalt lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose mountains thou wilt dig copper.
8:12 lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built and inhabited fine houses,
8:13 and thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied,
8:15 who led thee through the great and terrible wilderness, [a wilderness of] fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there is no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
8:16 who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;
8:17 and thou say in thy heart, My power and the might of my hand has procured me this wealth.
