Deuteronomy 6:1-8New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Obey God and Prosper
6 “Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the judgments which the Lord your God has commanded me to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you are going over to possess it,2 so that you and your son and your grandson might fear the Lord your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged.3 O Israel, you should listen and [a]be careful to do it, that it may be well with you and that you may multiply greatly, just as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, ina land flowing with milk and honey.
4 “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one!5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.7 You shall teach them diligently to your sons 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.8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as [b]frontals [c]on your forehead.
Deuteronomy 6:20-25New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 “When your son asks you in time to come, saying, ‘What do the testimonies and the statutes and the judgments mean which the Lord our God commanded you?’21 then you shall say to your son, ‘We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, and the Lord brought us from Egypt with a mighty hand.22 Moreover, the Lord showed great and distressing signs and wonders before our eyes against Egypt, Pharaoh and all his household;23 He brought us out from there in order to bring us in, to give us the land which He had sworn to our fathers.’24 So the Lord commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God for our good always and for our survival, as it is today.25 It will be righteousness for us if we [a]are careful to observe all this commandment before the Lord our God, just as He commanded us.
