11. Surely, this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away.
12. It is not in heaven, that you should say, 'Who will go up to heaven for us, and get it for us so that we may hear it and observe it?'
13. Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, 'Who will cross to the other side of the sea for us, and get it for us so that we may hear it and observe it?'
14. No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe.

'Born at Bethsaida and brother to Peter, Andrew was originally a disciple of the Baptist who pointed him to Jesus as the Christ. He brought his brother to Jesus, and introduced a group of Gentiles to him. According to tradition, he preached the gospel in many places before being crucified in Achaia.'
On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines,
of rich food filled with marrow,
of well-aged wines strained clear.
7 He will destroy on this mountain
the shroud that is cast over all peoples,
the sheet that is spread over all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.
8 Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces,
and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the Lord has spoken.
