On that day I swore to them that (E)I would bring them out of the land of Egypt into a land that I had searched out for them, a land (F)flowing with milk and honey, (G)the most glorious of all lands. And I said to them, (H)‘Cast away the detestable things (I)your eyes feast on, every one of you, and do not defile yourselves with (J)the idols of Egypt; (K)I am the Lord your God.’
