"I will let you choose to live or die." v8

The following verses came to mind;

"Look, today I offer you life and success, death and destruction. I command you today to love the Lord your God, to do what He wants you to do, and to keep His commands, His rules, and His laws. Then you will live and grow in number and the Lord your God will bless you in the land." Deu 30:15

"I am offering you life or death, blessings or curses. Now, choose life! Then you and your children may live. To choose life is to love the Lord your God, obey Him and stay close to Him. He is your life and He will let you live many years in the land." Deu 30:20

To choose life is to love the Lord your God, obey Him and stay close to Him. I choose life!

how horrible it is to have God against you, in fact bent on your destruction. I can't imagine anything more fearsome.
I find it interesting, in a historical way, how God uses other nations to discipline Israel. I often wonder if He's not still doing things like that.
