Deuteronomy: Constant repetition should produce 2 results: 1) that what is repeated is important and 2) that the memory would be impressed. Here Moses makes another plea for Israel to eschew foreign gods and the benefits of their doing so are milk and honey. This was, after all, the Promised Land. The first command “I am the LORD your God, you shall have no strange gods before me” is supremely important. I doubt we’ve absorbed that yet.
