commandments, or no.
DEU 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee
with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that
he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
DEU 8:4 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot
swell, these forty years.
DEU 8:5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man
chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
DEU 8:6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God,
to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
