6:1 Now these [are] the commandments, the statutes, and the
judgments which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that
ye may do [them] in the land whither ye go to possess it:
6:2 That thou mayst fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his
statutes and his commandments which I command thee, thou, and
thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life: and that
thy days may be prolonged.
6:3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do [it]; that it
may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as
the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land
that floweth with milk and honey.
6:4 Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God [is] one LORD:
6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6:6 And these words which I command thee this day, shall be in
6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently to thy children, and
shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when
thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when
thou risest up.
6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they
shall be as frontlets between thy eyes.
6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and
on thy gates.
6:10 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought
thee into the land which he swore to thy fathers, to Abraham,
to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities,
which thou didst not build,
6:11 And houses full of all good [things], which thou didst not
fill, and wells digged, which thou didst not dig, vineyards and
olive-trees, which thou didst not plant; when thou shalt have
eaten and be full;
6:12 [Then] beware lest thou shouldst forget the LORD, who
brought thee forth from the land of Egypt, from the house of
6:13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt
swear by his name.
6:14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people
which [are] around you;
6:15 (For the LORD thy God [is] a jealous God among you) lest
the anger of the LORD thy God should be kindled against thee,
and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
6:16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted [him]
6:17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your
God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath
6:18 And thou shalt do [that which is] right and good in the
sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou
mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD swore to
6:19 To cast out all thy enemies from before thee, as the LORD

6:21 Then thou shalt say to thy son, We were Pharoah's bond-men
