"Moses said to [maría]: 'And now, [maría], what does the Lord, your God, ask of you
but to fear the Lord, your God, and follow his ways exactly,
to love and serve the Lord, your God,
with all your heart and all your soul,
to keep the commandments and statues of the Lord which I enjoin on you today
for your own good?
The heavens, even the highest heavens, belong to the Lord, your God,
as well as the earth and everything on it...
Circumcise your heart,
and be no longer stiff-necked.
For the Lord, your God, is the God of gods,
the Lord of lords, the great God,
mighty and awesome,
who has no favorites, accepts to bribes...
He is your glory, he your God..."
