“I am the Lord your God. You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you” (18:2-3). “Keep all my decrees and laws and follow them, so that the land where I am bringing you to live may not vomit you out” (20:22).
God wants there to be a clear distinction between his chosen people and the rest of the world. Over and over again these people (our ancestors) are reminded of who they are: God’s Chosen. For 430 years all they knew was captivity; all anyone in their community knew about was serving the Egyptians. Now they’re part of something new and better, but the old ways are hard to extinguish.
