These are the laws and judgments. and commandments that the Lord, your God has commanded that you may live long in the land of milk and honey. Hear, Israel, the Lord is our god. Love him with all your heart, soul and strength. You shall impress them onto your children. You shall carve them into the doors of your houses, into the gates. When you enter into big, beautiful cities which you have not built, nor filled with goods, dug wells that you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant, when you eat your fill, take care that you do not forget the Lord who led you out of Egypt that you fear him and love him and serve him and swear by his name for he is the Lord and is a jealous god in your midst so that he may not send his wrath down upon you and destroy you. So do what is just and right in the eyes of the Lord who drives out your enemies. And should your son ask: “what are the exhortations, commandments and laws, that the Lord, your God commanded?” You shall answer: “we were servants in Egypt and the Lord rescued us from the mighty hand of Pharaoh.”
