Deuteronomy 6:17-25New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 You should diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and His testimonies and His statutes which He has commanded you.18 You shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may be well with you and that you may go in and possess the good land which the Lord swore to give your fathers,19 by driving out all your enemies from before you, as the Lord has spoken.
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.
