6 Now these are athe commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye †go to possess it: 2 That bthou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; cand that thy days may be prolonged. 3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; cthat it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, das the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in ethe land that floweth with milk and honey. 4 fHear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: 5 And gthou shalt love the Lord thy God hwith all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy hmight. 6 And ithese words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7 And kthou shalt †teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 8 lAnd thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. 9 mAnd thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates. 10 And it shall be, when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, nwhich thou buildedst not, 11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; owhen thou shalt have eaten and be full; 12 Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of †bondage. 13 Thou shalt pfear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and qshalt swear by his name. 14 Ye shall not rgo after other gods, sof the gods of the people which are round about you; 15 (For tthe Lord thy God is a jealous God among you) ulest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth. 16 xYe shall not tempt the Lord your God, yas ye tempted him in Massah. 17 Ye shall zdiligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee. 18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: athat it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, 19 bTo cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken. 20 And cwhen thy son asketh thee †in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you? 21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the Lord brought us out of Egypt dwith a mighty hand: 22 eAnd the Lord shewed signs and wonders, great and †sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes: 23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers. 24 And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, fto fear the Lord our God, gfor our good always, that hhe might preserve us alive, as it is at this day. 25 And iit shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.
