Deuteronomy 6:11-21 (Common English Bible)

View In My Bible
11 houses stocked with all kinds of goods that you didn't stock, cisterns that you didn't make, vineyards and olive trees that you didn't plant—and you eat and get stuffed, 12 watch yourself! Don't forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 13 Revere the LORD your God, serve him, and take your oaths in his name! 14 Don't follow other gods, those gods of the people around you— 15 because the LORD your God, who is with you and among you, is a passionate God. The LORD your God's anger will burn against you, and he will wipe you off the fertile land. 16 Don't test the LORD your God the way you frustrated him at Massah. 17 You must carefully follow the LORD your God's commands along with the laws and regulations he has given you. 18 Do what is right and good in the LORD's sight so that things will go well for you and so you will enter and take possession of the wonderful land that the LORD swore to your ancestors, 19 and so the LORD will drive out all your enemies from before you, just as he promised.

The next generation

20 In the future, your children will ask you, "What is the meaning of the laws,a the regulations, and the case laws that the LORD our God commanded you?" 21 tell them: We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt. But the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
