1 Now this is the commandment, the statutes, and the ordinances, which YHWH your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it--
1 And these are the commands, and the ordinances, and the judgements, as many as the Lord our God gave commandment to teach you to do so in the land on which ye enter to inherit it.
1 “These are the precepts and ceremonies, as well as the judgments, which the Lord your God has commanded that I teach to you, which you shall do in the land to which you will travel in order to possess it.
2 that thou mightest fear YHWH thy God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
2 So may you fear the Lord your God, and keep all his commandments and precepts, which I am entrusting to you, and to your sons and grandsons, all the days of your life, so that your days may be prolonged.
3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as YHWH, the God of thy fathers, hath promised unto thee--a land flowing with milk and honey.
3 Hear, therefore, O Israel, and observe to do them, that it may be well with thee, and that ye may be greatly multiplied, as the Lord God of thy fathers said that he would give thee a land flowing with milk and honey: and these are the ordinances, and the judgements, which the Lord commanded the children of Israel in the wilderness, when they had gone forth from the land of Egypt.
3 Listen and observe, O Israel, so that you may do just as the Lord has instructed you, and it may be well with you, and you may be multiplied all the more, for the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you a land flowing with milk and honey.
4 HEAR, O ISRAEL: YHWH OUR GOD, THE YHWH IS ONE.
4 Listen, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord.
5 And thou shalt love YHWH thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.
5 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be upon thy heart;
7 and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
7 And you shall explain them to your sons. And you shall meditate upon them sitting in your house, and walking on a journey, when lying down and when rising up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be for frontlets between thine eyes.
8 And you shall bind them like a sign on your hand, and they shall be placed and shall move between your eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the door-posts of thy house, and upon thy gates.
9 And ye shall write them on the lintels of your houses and of your gates.
