The Holy Bible - The Fifth Book of Moses: Called Deuteronomy, Chapter 6 (Latin)
1Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
2That thou mightest fear the LORD 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.
3Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
10And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
11And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;
12Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
13Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.
14Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
15(For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
16Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
17Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
18And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers.
19To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken.
20And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you?
21Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
22And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
23And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto 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 it is at this day.
25And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.
1haec sunt praecepta et caerimoniae atque iudicia quae mandavit Dominus Deus vester ut docerem vos et faciatis ea in terra ad quam transgredimini possidendam
2ut timeas Dominum Deum tuum et custodias omnia mandata et praecepta eius quae ego praecipio tibi et filiis ac nepotibus tuis cunctis diebus vitae tuae ut prolongentur dies tui
3audi Israhel et observa ut facias et bene sit tibi et multipliceris amplius sicut pollicitus est Dominus Deus patrum tuorum tibi terram lacte et melle manantem
4audi Israhel Dominus Deus noster Dominus unus est
5diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo et ex tota anima tua et ex tota fortitudine tua
6eruntque verba haec quae ego praecipio tibi hodie in corde tuo
7et narrabis ea filiis tuis et meditaberis sedens in domo tua et ambulans in itinere dormiens atque consurgens
8et ligabis ea quasi signum in manu tua eruntque et movebuntur inter oculos tuos
9scribesque ea in limine et ostiis domus tuae
10cumque introduxerit te Dominus Deus tuus in terram pro qua iuravit patribus tuis Abraham Isaac et Iacob et dederit tibi civitates magnas et optimas quas non aedificasti
11domos plenas cunctarum opum quas non extruxisti cisternas quas non fodisti vineta et oliveta quae non plantasti
12et comederis et saturatus fueris
13cave diligenter ne obliviscaris Domini qui eduxit te de terra Aegypti de domo servitutis Dominum Deum tuum timebis et ipsi servies ac per nomen illius iurabis
14non ibitis post deos alienos cunctarum gentium quae in circuitu vestro sunt
15quoniam Deus aemulator Dominus Deus tuus in medio tui nequando irascatur furor Domini Dei tui contra te et auferat te de superficie terrae
16non temptabis Dominum Deum tuum sicut temptasti in loco temptationis
17custodi praecepta Domini Dei tui ac testimonia et caerimonias quas praecepit tibi
18et fac quod placitum est et bonum in conspectu Domini ut bene sit tibi et ingressus possideas terram optimam de qua iuravit Dominus patribus tuis
19ut deleret omnes inimicos tuos coram te sicut locutus est
20cum interrogaverit te filius tuus cras dicens quid sibi volunt testimonia haec et caerimoniae atque iudicia quae praecepit Dominus Deus noster nobis
21dices ei servi eramus Pharaonis in Aegypto et eduxit nos Dominus de Aegypto in manu forti
22fecitque signa atque prodigia magna et pessima in Aegypto contra Pharaonem et omnem domum illius in conspectu nostro
23et eduxit nos inde ut introductis daret terram super qua iuravit patribus nostris
24praecepitque nobis Dominus ut faciamus omnia legitima haec et timeamus Dominum Deum nostrum et bene sit nobis cunctis diebus vitae nostrae sicut est hodie
25eritque nostri misericors si custodierimus et fecerimus omnia praecepta eius coram Domino Deo nostro sicut mandavit nobis
