So commit yourselves completely to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands as a reminder, and wear them on your forehead.
Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away on a journey, when you are lying down and when you are getting up again.
Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates,
so that as long as the sky remains above the earth, you and your children may flourish in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors.
"Be careful to obey all the commands I give you; show love to the LORD your God by walking in his ways and clinging to him.
Then the LORD will drive out all the nations in your land, though they are much greater and stronger than you.
Wherever you set your feet, the land will be yours. Your frontiers will stretch from the wilderness in the south to Lebanon in the north, and from the Euphrates River in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. a25
No one will be able to stand against you, for the LORD your God will send fear and dread ahead of you, as he promised you, wherever you go in the whole land.
