Deuteronomy 6:11-21 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
11 Your houses will be filled with all kinds of things that you didn't put there. You will have cisterns that you didn't dig and vineyards and olive trees that you didn't plant. After you have eaten all that you want, 12 be careful that you don't forget the LORD, who brought you out of slavery in Egypt. 13 You must fear the LORD your God, serve him, and take your oaths only in his name. 14 Never worship any of the gods worshiped by the people around you. 15 If you do, the LORD your God will become very angry with you and will wipe you off the face of the earth, because the LORD your God, who is with you, is a God who does not tolerate rivals. 16 Never test the LORD your God as you did at Massah. 17 Be sure to obey the commands of the LORD your God and the regulations and laws he has given you. 18 Do what the LORD considers right and good. Then things will go well for you, and you will enter and take possession of that good land which the LORD promised to your ancestors with an oath. 19 You will see the LORD expel your enemies as he said he would. 20 In the future your children will ask you, "What do these regulations, laws, and rules which the LORD our God commanded you mean to you?" 21 Tell them, "We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt, but the LORD used his mighty hand to bring us out of there.
