1. “And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.”
2 “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
3 “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. You crown the year with your bounty; your wagon tracks overflow with abundance.”
4 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
