Deuteronomy 6:11-21 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
11 It has houses that are filled with all kinds of good things you didn't provide. It has wells you didn't dig. And it has vineyards and groves of olive trees you didn't plant. You will have plenty to eat. 12 But be careful that you don't forget the Lord. Remember that he brought you out of Egypt. That's the land where you were slaves. 13 Worship the LORD your God. He is the only one you should serve. When you make promises, take your oaths in his name. 14 Don't follow other gods. Don't worship the gods of the nations that are around you. 15 The LORD your God is among you. He is a jealous God. If you worship other gods, his anger will burn against you. And he will destroy you from the face of the land. 16 Don't put the LORD your God to the test as you did at Massah. 17 Be sure to obey the LORD's commands. Follow the terms and rules he has given you. 18 Do what is right and good in the LORD's eyes. Then things will go well with you. You will go in and take over the land. It's the good land the LORD promised with an oath to your people long ago. 19 You will drive out all of your enemies to make room for you. That's what the LORD said would happen. 20 Later on, your son might ask you, "What is the meaning of the terms, rules and laws the LORD our God has commanded you to obey?" 21 If he does, tell him, "We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt. But the LORD used his mighty hand to bring us out of Egypt.
