5 See, just as the Lord my God has charged me; I now teach you statutes and ordinances for you to observe in the land that you are about to enter and occupy.
6 You must observe them diligently, for this will show your wisdom and discernment to the peoples, who, when they hear all these statutes, will say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and discerning people!"
7 For what other great nation has a god so near to it as the Lord our god is whenever we call to him?
8 And what other great nation has statutes and ordinances as just as this entire law that I am setting before you this day?
9 But take care and watch yourselves closely, so as neither to forget the things that your eyes have seen nor let them slip from your mind all the days of your life; make them known to your children's children…
"Remembrance is the secret of redemption; Forgetfulness leads to exile."
The Rabbi Baal Shem Tov
