1. Read - "And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart;
And thou shalt teach them thy children, and thou shalt speak of them, sitting in thy house, and walking in the way, and lying down, and rising up.
And thou shalt bind them for a sign in thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. " Deuteronomy 6: 6-8
