16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.f 17 Then the Lord’s angerg will burn against you, and he will shut uph the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce,i and you will soon perishj from the good land the Lord is giving you. 18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.k 19 Teach them to your children,l talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.m 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates,n 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be manyo in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.p
