Love1 the LORD your God with all your heart2 and with all your soul and with all your strength.36
These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.47
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.58
Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.69
Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.710
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,811
houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig,9 and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant--then when you eat and are satisfied,1012
be careful that you do not forget11 the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
Fear the LORD12 your God, serve him only13 and take your oaths14 in his name.1514
Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you;
for the LORD your God16, 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.
