 8:9
 8:10
8:9 It is a land where you will not eat rationed bread, and you will not lack anything - a land whose stones are iron, and from whose mountains you will quarry copper.
Erets asher lo vemiskenut tochal-bah lechem lo-techsar kol bah erets asher avaneyha varzel umeharareyha tachtsov nechoshet.
8:10 When you eat and are satisfied, you must therefore bless God your Lord for the good land that He has given you.
Ve'achalta vesavata uverachta et-Adonay Eloheycha al-ha'arets hatovah asher natan-lach.
