Deuteronomy 8 (ASV)
 All the commandment which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which Jehovah sware unto your fathers.
 And thou shalt remember all the way which Jehovah thy God hath led thee these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble thee, to prove thee, to know what was in thy heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or not.
 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by everything that proceedeth out of the mouth of Jehovah doth man live.
 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
 And thou shalt consider in thy heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so Jehovah thy God chasteneth thee.
 And thou shalt keep the commandments of Jehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
 For Jehovah thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills;
 a land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig-trees and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey;
 a land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig copper.
 And thou shalt eat and be full, and thou shalt bless Jehovah thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.
 Beware lest thou forget Jehovah thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his ordinances, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
 lest, when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;
 and when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
 then thy heart be lifted up, and thou forget Jehovah thy God, who brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage;
 who led thee through the great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents and scorpions, and thirsty ground where was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;
 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:
 and lest thou say in thy heart, My power and the might of my hand hath gotten me this wealth.
 But thou shalt remember Jehovah thy God, for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth; that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as at this day.
 And it shall be, if thou shalt forget Jehovah thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
 As the nations that Jehovah maketh to perish before you, so shall ye perish; because ye would not hearken unto the voice of Jehovah your God.

Deuteronomy 8 (KJVS)
 All the commandments H4687 which I command H6680 (8764) thee this day H3117 shall ye observe H8104 (8799) to do H6213 (8800), that ye may live H2421 (8799), and multiply H7235 (8804), and go in H935 (8804) and possess H3423 (8804) the land H776 which the LORD H3068 sware H7650 (8738) unto your fathers H1.
 And thou shalt remember H2142 (8804) all the way H1870 which the LORD H3068 thy God H430 led H3212 (8689) thee these forty H705 years H8141 in the wilderness H4057, to humble H6031 (8763) thee, [and] to prove H5254 (8763) thee, to know H3045 (8800) what [was] in thine heart H3824, whether thou wouldest keep H8104 (8799) his commandments H4687, or no.
 And he humbled H6031 (8762) thee, and suffered thee to hunger H7456 (8686), and fed H398 (8686) thee with manna H4478, which thou knewest H3045 (8804) not, neither did thy fathers H1 know H3045 (8804); that he might make thee know H3045 (8687) that man H120 doth not live H2421 (8799) by bread H3899 only H905, but by every [word] that proceedeth H4161 out of the mouth H6310 of the LORD H3068 doth man H120 live H2421 (8799).
 Thy raiment H8071 waxed not old H1086 (8804) upon thee, neither did thy foot H7272 swell H1216 (8804), these forty H705 years H8141.
 Thou shalt also consider H3045 (8804) in H5973 thine heart H3824, that, as a man H376 chasteneth H3256 (8762) his son H1121, [so] the LORD H3068 thy God H430 chasteneth H3256 (8764) thee.
 Therefore thou shalt keep H8104 (8804) the commandments H4687 of the LORD H3068 thy God H430, to walk H3212 (8800) in his ways H1870, and to fear H3372 (8800) him.
 For the LORD H3068 thy God H430 bringeth H935 (8688) thee into a good H2896 land H776, a land H776 of brooks H5158 of water H4325, of fountains H5869 and depths H8415 that spring out H3318 (8802) of valleys H1237 and hills H2022;
 A land H776 of wheat H2406, and barley H8184, and vines H1612, and fig trees H8384, and pomegranates H7416; a land H776 of oil H8081 olive H2132, and honey H1706;
 A land H776 wherein H834 thou shalt eat H398 (8799) bread H3899 without H3808 scarceness H4544, thou shalt not lack H2637 (8799) any [thing] in it; a land H776 whose stones H68 [are] iron H1270, and out of whose hills H2042 thou mayest dig H2672 (8799) brass H5178.
 When thou hast eaten H398 (8804) and art full H7646 (8804), then thou shalt bless H1288 (8765) the LORD H3068 thy God H430 for the good H2896 land H776 which he hath given H5414 (8804) thee.
 Beware H8104 (8734) that thou forget H7911 (8799) not the LORD H3068 thy God H430, in not keeping H8104 (8800) his commandments H4687, and his judgments H4941, and his statutes H2708, which I command H6680 (8764) thee this day H3117:
 Lest [when] thou hast eaten H398 (8799) and art full H7646 (8804), and hast built H1129 (8799) goodly H2896 houses H1004, and dwelt H3427 (8804) [therein];
 And [when] thy herds H1241 and thy flocks H6629 multiply H7235 (8799), and thy silver H3701 and thy gold H2091 is multiplied H7235 (8799), and all that thou hast is multiplied H7235 (8799);
 Then thine heart H3824 be lifted up H7311 (8804), and thou forget H7911 (8804) the LORD H3068 thy God H430, which brought thee forth H3318 (8688) out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714, from the house H1004 of bondage H5650;
 Who led H3212 (8688) thee through that great H1419 and terrible H3372 (8737) wilderness H4057, [wherein were] fiery H8314 serpents H5175, and scorpions H6137, and drought H6774, where [there was] no water H4325; who brought thee forth H3318 (8688) water H4325 out of the rock H6697 of flint H2496;
 Who fed H398 (8688) thee in the wilderness H4057 with manna H4478, which thy fathers H1 knew H3045 (8804) not, that he might humble H6031 (8763) thee, and that he might prove H5254 (8763) thee, to do thee good H3190 (8687) at thy latter end H319;
 And thou say H559 (8804) in thine heart H3824, My power H3581 and the might H6108 of [mine] hand H3027 hath gotten H6213 (8804) me this wealth H2428.
 But thou shalt remember H2142 (8804) the LORD H3068 thy God H430: for [it is] he that giveth H5414 (8802) thee power H3581 to get H6213 (8800) wealth H2428, that he may establish H6965 (8687) his covenant H1285 which he sware H7650 (8738) unto thy fathers H1, as [it is] this day H3117.
 And it shall be, if thou do at all H7911 (8800) forget H7911 (8799) the LORD H3068 thy God H430, and walk H1980 (8804) after H310 other H312 gods H430, and serve H5647 (8804) them, and worship H7812 (8694) them, I testify H5749 (8689) against you this day H3117 that ye shall surely H6 (8800) perish H6 (8799).
 As the nations H1471 which the LORD H3068 destroyeth H6 (8688) before your face H6440, so shall ye perish H6 (8799); because H6118 ye would not be obedient H8085 (8799) unto the voice H6963 of the LORD H3068 your God H430.
Young’s Literal Translation
Deuteronomy 8 (YLT)
 ‘All the command which I am commanding thee to-day ye observe to do, so that ye live, and have multiplied, and gone in, and possessed the land which Jehovah hath sworn to your fathers;
 and thou hast remembered all the way which Jehovah thy God hath caused thee to go these forty years in the wilderness, in order to humble thee to try thee, to know that which is in thy heart, whether thou dost keep His commands or not.
 ‘And He doth humble thee, and cause thee to hunger and doth cause thee to eat the manna (which thou hast not known, even thy fathers have not known), in order to cause thee to know that not by bread alone doth man live, but by every produce of the mouth of Jehovah man doth live.
 ‘Thy raiment hath not worn out from off thee, and thy foot hath not swelled these forty years,
 and thou hast known, with thy heart, that as a man chastiseth his son Jehovah thy God is chastising thee,
 and thou hast kept the commands of Jehovah thy God, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him.
 ‘For Jehovah thy God is bringing thee in unto a good land, a land of brooks of waters, of fountains, and of depths coming out in valley and in mountain:
 a land of wheat, and barley, and vine, and fig, and pomegranate; a land of oil olive and honey;
 a land in which without scarcity thou dost eat bread, thou dost not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of its mountains thou dost dig brass;
 and thou hast eaten, and been satisfied, and hast blessed Jehovah thy God, on the good land which he hath given to thee.
 ‘Take heed to thyself, lest thou forget Jehovah thy God so as not to keep His commands, and His judgments, and His statutes which I am commanding thee to-day;
 lest thou eat, and hast been satisfied, and good houses dost build, and hast inhabited;
 and thy herd and thy flock be multiplied, and silver and gold be multiplied to thee; and all that is thine be multiplied:
 ‘And thy heart hath been high, and thou hast forgotten Jehovah thy God (who is bringing thee out of the land of Egypt, out of a house of servants;
 who is causing thee to go in the great and the terrible wilderness-burning serpent, and scorpion, and thirst-where there is no water; who is bringing out to thee waters from the flinty rock;
 who is causing thee to eat manna in the wilderness, which thy fathers have not known, in order to humble thee, and in order to try thee, to do thee good in thy latter end),
 and thou hast said in thy heart, My power, and the might of my hand, hath made for me this wealth:
 ‘And thou hast remembered Jehovah thy God, for He it is who is giving to thee power to make wealth, in order to establish His covenant which He hath sworn to thy fathers as at this day.
 ‘And it hath been-if thou really forget Jehovah thy God, and hast gone after other gods, and served them, and bowed thyself to them, I have testified against you to-day that ye do utterly perish;
 as the nations whom Jehovah is destroying from your presence, so ye perish; because ye hearken not to the voice of Jehovah your God.
