These are the commands, decrees and laws the LORD your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess,
so that you, your children and their children after them may fear1 the LORD your God as long as you live2 by keeping all his decrees and commands3 that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.43
Hear, O Israel, and be careful to obey5 so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly6 in a land flowing with milk and honey,7 just as the LORD, the God of your fathers, promised8 you.
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.a95
Love10 the LORD your God with all your heart11 and with all your soul and with all your strength.126
These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.137
Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.148
Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.15
