Observe5 them carefully, for this will show your wisdom6 and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people."7
Only be careful,11 and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach12 them to your children13 and to their children after them.
Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb,14 when he said to me, "Assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn15 to revere16 me as long as they live in the land17 and may teach18 them to their children."
