Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
You will eat there in the presence of the LORD your God and rejoice with your household in everything you do, because the LORD your God has blessed you.
"You are not to do as we are doing here today; everyone [is doing] whatever seems right in his own eyes.
Indeed, you have not yet come into the resting place and the inheritance the LORD your God is giving you.
When you cross the Jordan and live in the land the LORD your God is giving you to inherit, and He gives you rest from all the enemies around you and you live in security,
then the LORD your God will choose the place to have His name dwell. Bring there everything I command you: your burnt offerings, sacrifices, offerings of the tenth, personal contributions, and all your choice offerings you vow to the LORD.
You will rejoice before the LORD your God-- you, your sons and daughters, your male and female slaves, and the Levite who is within your gates, since he has no portion or inheritance among you.
Rejoice before the LORD your God in the place where He chooses to have His name dwell-- you, your son and daughter, your male and female slave, the Levite within your gates, as well as the foreign resident, the fatherless, and the widow among you.

When they were in their kingdom, with Your abundant goodness You gave them, and in the spacious and fertile land You set before them, they would not serve You or turn from their wicked ways.
Instruct those who are rich in the present age not to be arrogant or to set their hope on the uncertainty of wealth, but on God, who richly provides us with all things to enjoy.
[Instruct them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, willing to share,
storing up for themselves a good foundation for the age to come, so that they may take hold of life that is real.
