Discussion for Deuteronomy 32:47

His words are of so high value that they can mean the difference between life and death as this scripture shows. So if we truly value our lives we want to seriously pay attention to Jehovah 's words that he has given us in his word the Bible and that he continues to give through his organization today because they can mean the difference between life and death.
