But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
A land which the Lord thy God careth for:
the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it,
from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
And it shall come to pass,
if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day,
to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season,
the first rain and the latter rain,
that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
(Deuteronomy 11: 11-14)
First measurable rain since May 9!
