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.159
Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.1610
When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you--a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build,1711
houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig,18 and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant--then when you eat and are satisfied,1912
be careful that you do not forget20 the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
