Another Bible translation translate verse 13 this way: “Have reverence for God, and obey his commands, because this is all that we were created for.”—Good News Translation. Obey God's commands (keep his commands), this is why we where created for. This this is the whole obligation of man.

The Bible makes clear, that we can draw close to God and that we can build a friendship with God: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.” (The Bible, James 4:8) "And the scripture was fulfilled that says: “Abraham put faith in Jehovah, and it was counted to him as righteousness,” and he came to be called Jehovah’s friend" (The Bible, James 2:23).
