Law #4: Yahweh's Book of Laws
Deuteronomy: 6.1-2, 13, 25

Deu 6:1  Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which Yahweh your Sovereign. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahweh our Sovereign, as he hath commanded us. commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: 

Deu 6:2  That thou mightest fear the Yahweh thy Sovereign.  And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Yahweh our Sovereign, as he hath commanded us. , 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. 

Deu 6:13  Thou shalt fear (reverence) Yahweh thy Sovereign. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before (reverence) our Sovereign, as he hath commanded us.  and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. 

Deu 6:25  And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahweh our Sovereign. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yahweh our Sovereign, as he hath commanded us. , as he hath commanded us.

Deuteronomy 6:1-3
Observe here,
1. That Moses taught the people all that, and that only, which Yahweh commanded him to teach them, Deu_6:1. Thus Yahshua's ministers are to teach his churches all that he has commanded, and neither more nor less, (Mat_28:20).

2. That the end of their being taught was that they might do as they were taught (Mat_28:1), might keep Yahweh's statutes (Deu_6:2), and observe to do them, (Deu_6:3). Good instructions from parents and ministers will but aggravate our condemnation if we do not live up to them.

3. That Moses carefully endeavoured to fix them for Yahweh and godliness, now that they were entering upon the land of Canaan, that they might be prepared for the comforts of that land, and fortified against the snares of it, and now that they were setting out in the world might set out well.

4. That the fear (reverence) Yahweh in the heart will be the most powerful principle of obedience: That thou mightest fear (reverence) Yahweh thy Sovereign, to keep all his statutes, (Deu_6:2. 5). The entail of religion in a family, or country, is the best entail: it is highly desirable that not we only, but our children, and our children's children, may fear (reverence) Yahweh.

5. Religion and righteousness advance and secure the prosperity of any people. Fear (reverence) Yahweh, and it shall be well with thee. Those that are well taught, if they do what they are taught, shall be well fed too, as Israel in the land flowing with milk and honey, (Deu_6:3).
