Nehemiah 5:12–13; Deuteronomy 29:12; Deuteronomy 29:14; Psalm 119:106

12 Then they said, We will restore these and orequire nothing from them. We will do as you say. And I called the priests and pmade them swear qto do as they had promised. 13 rI also shook out the fold1 of my garment and said, So may God shake out every man from his house and from his labor who does not keep this promise. So may he be shaken out and emptied. sAnd all the assembly said Amen and praised the Lord. And the people did as they had promised.

12 so that you may enter into the osworn covenant of the Lord your God, which the Lord your God is making with you today,

14 It is not with you alone sthat I am making this sworn covenant,

106  I have hsworn an oath and confirmed it,

to keep your irighteous rules.
