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?"
tell them: We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt. But the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
Before our own eyes, the LORD performed great and awesome deeds of powerb against Egypt, Pharaoh, and his entire dynasty.
But the Lord brought us out from there so that he could bring us in, giving us the land that he swore to our ancestors.
Then the LORD commanded us to perform all these regulations, revering the LORD our God, so that things go well for us always and so we continue to live, as we're doing right now.
What's more, we will be considered righteous if we are careful to do all this commandment before the LORD our God, just as he commanded us.
