6 Revised Standard Version Passage

10"And when the LORD your God brings you into the land which he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you, with great and goodly cities, which you did not build,Warnings. Dt.6.10-25
11and houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, and cisterns hewn out, which you did not hew, and vineyards and olive trees, which you did not plant, and when you eat and are full, 
12then take heed lest you forget the LORD, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 
13You shall fear the LORD your God; you shall serve him, and swear by his name. 
14You shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the peoples who are round about you; 
15for the LORD your God in the midst of you is a jealous God; lest the anger of the LORD your God be kindled against you, and he destroy you from off the face of the earth. 
16"You shall not put the LORD your God to the test, as you tested him at Massah. 
17You shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he has commanded you. 
18And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the LORD, that it may go well with you, and that you may go in and take possession of the good land which the LORD swore to give to your fathers 
19by thrusting out all your enemies from before you, as the LORD has promised. 
20"When your son asks you in time to come, 'What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the ordinances which the LORD our God has commanded you?' 
21then you shall say to your son, 'We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand; 
22and the LORD showed signs and wonders, great and grievous, against Egypt and against Pharaoh and all his household, before our eyes; 
23and he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in and give us the land which he swore to give to our fathers. 
24And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as at this day. 
25And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this commandment before the LORD our God, as he has commanded us.'
