Deuteronomy 6:20-25

Context
Exhortation to Remember the Past

6:20 When your children 2  ask you later on, “What are the stipulations, statutes, and ordinances that the Lord our God commanded you?” 6:21 you must say to them, 3  “We were Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt, but the Lord brought us out of Egypt in a powerful way. 4  6:22 And he 5  brought signs and great, devastating wonders on Egypt, on Pharaoh, and on his whole family 6  before our very eyes. 6:23 He delivered us from there so that he could give us the land he had promised our ancestors. 6:24 The Lord commanded us to obey all these statutes and to revere him 7  so that it may always go well for us and he may preserve us, as he has to this day. 6:25 We will be innocent if we carefully keep all these commandments 8  before the Lord our God, just as he demands.” 9
