Fear the LORD 1 your God, serve him only2 and take your oaths3 in his name.414
Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you;
for the LORD your God5, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.
Do not test the LORD your God6 as you did at Massah.
Be sure to keep7 the commands of the LORD your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you.818
Do what is right and good in the LORD's sight,9 so that it may go well10 with you and you may go in and take over the good land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers,
thrusting out all your enemies11 before you, as the LORD said.
In the future, when your son asks you,12 "What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws the LORD our God has commanded you?"
tell him: "We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.1322
Before our eyes the LORD sent miraculous signs and wonders--great and terrible--upon Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household.
But he brought us out from there to bring us in and give us the land that he promised on oath to our forefathers.
