Observe1 them carefully, for this will show your wisdom2 and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people."3
Only be careful,7 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. Teach8 them to your children9 and to their children after them.
Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb,10 when he said to me, "Assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn11 to revere12 me as long as they live in the land13 and may teach14 them to their children."
