SPECIAL TOPIC: YHWH'S COVENANT REQUIREMENTS OF ISRAEL

YHWH's requirements (BDB 981, KB 1371, Qal active participle) are stated clearly in a series of Qal infinitive constructs:

1. "to fear the Lord" – BDB 431, KB 432, cf. Deut. 4:10; 10:12,20

2. "to walk in all His ways" – BDB 229, KB 246, cf. Deut. 4:29

3. "to love Him" – BDB 12, KB 17, Deut. 6:5; 10:15; see full note at 5:10

4. "to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul" – BDB 712, KB 773, Deut. 4:29; 6:5; 10:12; 11:13; 13:3; 26:16; 30:2,6,10

5. "to keep the Lord's commandments and His statutes" – BDB 1036, KB 1581

This passage is similar to Micah 6:6-8. Both speak of a faith that affects daily life!
