30:2 Then if you and your descendants 1 turn to the Lord your God and obey him with your whole mind and being 2 just as 3 I am commanding you today,
30:8 You will return and obey the Lord, keeping all his commandments I am giving 4 you today.
30:20 I also call on you 5 to love the Lord your God, to obey him and be loyal to him, for he gives you life and enables you to live continually 6 in the land the Lord promised to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
1 tn Heb “sons” (so NASB); KJV, ASV, NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT “children.”
2 tn Or “heart and soul” (also in vv. 6, 10).
3 tn Heb “according to all.”
4 tn Heb “commanding”; NAB “which I now enjoin on you.”
5 tn The words “I also call on you” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons. In the Hebrew text vv. 19-20 are one long sentence, which the translation divides into two.
6 tn Heb “he is your life and the length of your days to live.”
