For Our Own Good

He brought us out from there in order to bring us to the land he had sworn to our ancestors that he would give us. Adonai ordered us to observe all these laws, to fear Adonai our God, always for our own good, so that he might keep us alive, as we are today.  It will be righteousness for us if we are careful to obey all these mitzvot before Adonai our God, just as he ordered us to do.   ~~ Deuteronomy 6: 23-25
