Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 These are the commandments, ordinances, and laws that the Lord your God has commanded to teach you to do this way in the land you go to possess it;
2 that you be afraid of the Lord your God, and all His decrees and His commandments that I command you, you and your sons and your sons of your sons will keep all the days of your life, so that your days may be prolonged.
3 So listen, Israel, and try to do it so that you feel good, and that you multiply very much, as the Lord God of your fathers told you [that He will give you] land where milk and honey flow.

4 Listen, Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one;
5 and love the Lord thy God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
6 And may these words be which I command you today in your heart.
7 and inspire them in your children and speak of them, sitting in your house and walking the road, and lying down and rising;
eight and impose them on your hand as a sign, and may they be a bandage over your eyes,
nine and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
ten When the Lord your God brings you into the land that He swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you with big and good cities that you did not build,
eleven and with houses filled with all kinds of goodness that you did not fill, and with wells carved [from stone] that you did not carve, with vineyards and olives that you did not plant, and you will eat and be saturated,
12 then beware that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.
13 Fear the Lord thy God, and serve him [alone], and swear by his name.
fourteen Do not follow other gods, the gods of those nations that will be around you;
fifteen for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God; so that the anger of the Lord thy God does not ignite on you, and he does not destroy you from the face of the earth.
16 Do not tempt the Lord your God, as you tempted Him in the Mass.

17 Firmly keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his statutes and decrees, which he commanded you;
18 and do righteous and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you, and that you go in and take possession of the good land that the Lord promised with an oath to your fathers,
19 and that He will drive all your enemies away from your face, as the Lord said.
20 If your son asks you later, saying: “What do these statutes, decrees and laws that the Lord your God commanded you?”
21 then tell your son: `We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, but the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand;
22 and the Lord showed great signs and wonders and executions over Egypt, over Pharaoh and over his whole house before our eyes;
23 but he led us out of there to bring us in and give us the land that he swore to our fathers [to give us];
24 and the Lord commanded us to fulfill all these decrees, so that we would be afraid of the Lord our God, that it might be good for us all the days, in order to save our lives, as now
25 and this will be our righteousness, if we try to keep all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us. ”
