Deuteronomy 6:8-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Bind them on your arm as a sign[a] and let them be as a pendant on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.

  1. 6:8 Bind them…as a sign: these injunctions were probably meant merely in a figurative sense; cf. Ex 13:9, 16.

Mt 23:5.
