8) Conditional promises to Israel through Moses

Moses went up unto God, and Yahweh called unto him out of the mountain, saying, “Thus shall thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians.. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. Exodus 19:3-6

This is a conditional promise. Unlike the ones made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It says “ if you will obey my voice”. Again, conditionally,

For Yahweh thy God blesses you, as he promised you: and you shall lend unto many nations, but you shall not borrow; and you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you. Deuteronomy 15:6
And Yahweh has contracted with you this day to be his peculiar people, as he has promised you, and that you should keep all his commandments; Deuteronomy 26:18

Israel are blessed to be made a treasure or made holy, if they obey.
