Deuteronomy 11:13-24 Fix these words of mine in you hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your head and bind them on your forehead. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many. If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow, to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to hold fast to Him, then… every place where you set your foot will be yours.
