30:6 The Lord your God will also cleanse 1 your heart and the hearts of your descendants 2 so that you may love him 3 with all your mind and being and so that you may live.
30:15 “Look! I have set before you today life and prosperity on the one hand, and death and disaster on the other.
30:19 Today I invoke heaven and earth as a witness against you that I have set life and death, blessing and curse, before you. Therefore choose life so that you and your descendants may live!
30:20 I also call on you 4 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 5 in the land the Lord promised to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
1 tn Heb “circumcise” (so KJV, NAB, NIV, NRSV); TEV “will give you and your descendents obedient hearts.” See note on the word “cleanse” in Deut 10:16.
2 tn Heb “seed” (so KJV, ASV).
3 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” See note on the second occurrence of the word “he” in v. 3.
4 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.
5 tn Heb “he is your life and the length of your days to live.”
