What does Deuteronomy 6:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 6:1

Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the

Not the ten commandments repeated in the preceding chapter, but all others, whether moral, ceremonial, or judicial, afterwards declared; for what Moses now did was only to give a repetition and fresh declaration of such laws as he had before received, and delivered to the people; and so the Targum of Jonathan thus paraphrases this clause,

``this is a declaration of the commandments, statutes, and judgments:''

which the Lord your God commanded to teach you;
that is, which he commanded him, Moses, to teach them, though not fully expressed, as may be learned from ( Deuteronomy 4:1 Deuteronomy 4:5 ) ( 5:31 )

that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it;
