Deuteronomy 10:14-21 (Vespers, 3rd reading, Fathers)

Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the Lord your God, also the earth with all that is in it.
The Lord delighted only in your fathers, to love them; and He chose their descendants after them, you above all peoples, as it is this day.
Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer.
For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.
He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing.
Therefore love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
You shall fear the Lord your God; you shall serve Him, and to Him you shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name.
He is your praise, and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things which your eyes have seen.
