Deuteronomy 6
A Faithful Version

1"Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments which the LORD our God commanded to teach you so that you might do them in the land where you go to possess it, 2That you might fear the LORD your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you, and your son, and your son's son, all the days of your life, and so that your days may be prolonged. 3Hear therefore, O Israel, and be diligent to observe it, so that it may be well with you, and that you may greatly multiply, as the LORD God of our fathers has promised you, in the land that flows with milk and honey.

4Hear, O Israel. Our one God is the LORD, the LORD. 5And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6And these words which I command you this day shall be in your heart. 7And you shall diligently teach them to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9And you shall write them upon the posts of your house and on your gates.

10And it shall be when the LORD your God has brought you into the land which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob, to give you great and goodly cities which you did not build, 11And houses full of every good thing which you did not fill, and wells which are dug, which you did not dig; vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant, and you shall eat and be full; 12Then beware lest you forget the LORD Who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt from the house of bondage. 13You shall fear the LORD your God and serve Him, and shall swear by His name. 14You shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people who are all around you, 15For the LORD your God is a jealous God among you, lest the anger of the LORD your God be kindled against you and destroy you from off the face of the earth.

16You shall not tempt the LORD your God as you tempted Him in Massah. 17You shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and His testimonies, and His statutes which He has commanded you. 18And you shall do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD, so that it may be well with you, and so that you may go in and possess the good land which the LORD swore to your fathers, 19To cast out all your enemies from before you as the LORD has spoken.

20When your son asks you in time to come, saying, 'What are the testimonies and the statutes and the judgments which the LORD our God has commanded you?' 21Then you shall say to your son, 'We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt, and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. 22And the LORD showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his household, before our eyes. 23And He brought us out from there so that He might bring us in to give us the land which He swore to our fathers. 24And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes--to fear the LORD our God for our good always so that He might preserve us alive, as it is today. 25And it shall be righteousness for us if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God as He has commanded us. ' "
