All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but leave to worship other gods and serve them, I tell you today that you will die for sure. You will not live long in that land across the Jordan which you are about to take for your own. I call heaven and earth to speak against you today.

For He is your life, and by Him your days will be long.”
