Deuteronomy 6:12 In-Context

10 When God, your God, ushers you into the land he promised through your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to give you, you're going to walk into large, bustling cities you didn't build,
11 well-furnished houses you didn't buy, come upon wells you didn't dig, vineyards and olive orchards you didn't plant. When you take it all in and settle down, pleased and content,

13 Deeply respect God, your God. Serve and worship him exclusively. Back up your promises with his name only.
14 Don't fool around with other gods, the gods of your neighbors,
