Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,

All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.
