A Call for Wholehearted Commitment

6"These are the commands, decrees, and regulations that the LORD your God commanded me to teach you. You must obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy,H4687H2706H4941H3068H430H6680H3925H6213H776H5674H3423 2and you and your children and grandchildren must fear the LORD your God as long as you live. If you obey all his decrees and commands, you will enjoy a long life.H3372H3068H430H8104H2708H4687H6680H1121H1121H1121H3117H2416H3117H748 3Listen closely, Israel, and be careful to obey. Then all will go well with you, and you will have many children in the land flowing with milk and honey, just as the LORD, the God of your ancestors, promised you.H8085H3478H8104H6213H3190H7235H3966H3068H430H1H1696H776H2100H2461H1706 4"Listen, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone.H8085H3478H3068H430H259H3068 5And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.H157H3068H430H3824H5315H3966 6And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today.H1697H6680H3117H3824 7Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.H8150H1121H1696H3427H1004H3212H1870H7901H6965 8Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders.H7194H226H3027H2903H5869 9Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.H3789H4201H1004H8179 10"The LORD your God will soon bring you into the land he swore to give you when he made a vow to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is a land with large, prosperous cities that you did not build.H3068H430H935H776H7650H1H85H3327H3290H5414H1419H2896H5892H1129 11The houses will be richly stocked with goods you did not produce. You will draw water from cisterns you did not dig, and you will eat from vineyards and olive trees you did not plant. When you have eaten your fill in this land,H1004H4392H2898H4390H953H2672H2672H3754H2132H5193H398H7646 12be careful not to forget the LORD, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt.H8104H7911H3068H3318H776H4714H1004H5650 13You must fear the LORD your God and serve him. When you take an oath, you must use only his name.H3372H3068H430H5647H7650H8034 14"You must not worship any of the gods of neighboring nations,H3212H310H312H430H430H5971H5439 15for the LORD your God, who lives among you, is a jealous God. His anger will flare up against you, and he will wipe you from the face of the earth.H3068H430H7067H410H7130H639H3068H430H2734H8045H6440H127 16You must not test the LORD your God as you did when you complained at Massah.H5254H3068H430H5254H4532 17You must diligently obey the commands of the LORD your God—all the laws and decrees he has given you.H8104H8104H4687H3068H430H5713H2706H6680 18Do what is right and good in the LORD's sight, so all will go well with you. Then you will enter and occupy the good land that the LORD swore to give your ancestors.H6213H3477H2896H5869H3068H3190H935H3423H2896H776H3068H7650H1 19You will drive out all the enemies living in the land, just as the LORD said you would.H1920H341H6440H3068H1696 20"In the future your children will ask you, 'What is the meaning of these laws, decrees, and regulations that the LORD our God has commanded us to obey?'H1121H7592H4279H559H5713H2706H4941H3068H430H6680 21"Then you must tell them, 'We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt, but the LORD brought us out of Egypt with his strong hand.H559H1121H6547H5650H4714H3068H3318H4714H2389H3027 22The LORD did miraculous signs and wonders before our eyes, dealing terrifying blows against Egypt and Pharaoh and all his people.H3068H5414H226H4159H1419H7451H4714H6547H1004H5869 23He brought us out of Egypt so he could give us this land he had sworn to give our ancestors.H3318H935H5414H776H7650H1 24And the LORD our God commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear him so he can continue to bless us and preserve our lives, as he has done to this day.H3068H6680H6213H2706H3372H3068H430H2896H3117H2421H3117 25For we will be counted as righteous when we obey all the commands the LORD our God has given us.'H6666H8104H6213H2063H4687H6440H3068H430H6680
