And you shall teach them diligently to your children and you shall speak of them

When you sit at home and when you walk along the way and when you lie down and when you rise up

And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be frontlets between your eyes

To love Yahweh your Elohim to serve Him with all your heart and all your soul

Beware lest your heart be deceived and you turn and serve other masters and worship them.

 VECHARA AF YHVH BACHEM VE-ATZAR ET HASHAMAYIM VELO YIYE MATAR VEHAADAMA LO TITEN ET EVULA.

And danger of Yahweh will blaze against you and He will close the heavens and there will not be rain and the earth will not give you its fullness.

VAAVADTEM M’HERA ME-AL HAARETZ HATOVA ASHER YHVH NOTEN LACHEM.

And you will perish quickly from the good land that Yahweh gives you.

And you shall write them on the doorpost of your house and on your gates.

L’MAAN YIRBU YEMECHEM VIME V’NECHEM AL HAADAMA  ASHER NISHBA YHVH LAAVOTECHEM LATET LAHEM KIME HASHAMAYIM AL HAARETZ.

In order to prolong your days and the days of your children on the land that Yahweh promised your fathers that He would give them, as long as the days that the heavens are over the earth.

VAYOMER YHVH EL MOSHE LEMOR. DABER EL B’NE YISRAEL VE-AMARTA ALEHEM

And Yahweh spoke to Moshe saying, Speak to the children of Yisrael and say to them

VE-ASU LAHEM TZITZIT AL KANFE VIGDEHEM LEDOROTAM VENAT’NU AL TZITZIT HAKANAF P’TIL T’CHELET.

They should make themselves tzitzit on the corners of their clothing throughout their generations and give the tzitzit of each corner a thread of blue.

VEHAYA LACHEM LETZITZIT UR’ITEM OTO UZCHARTEM ET KOL MITZVOT YHVH VAASITEM OTAM VELO TATURU ACHARE LEVAVCHEM VE-ACHARE ENECHEM ASHER ATEM ZONIM ACHAREHEM

And they shall be tzitzit for you and when you look at them you will remember all of Yahweh’s commandments and do them and not follow after your heart and after you eyes which lead you astray.

LEMAAN TIZKERU VAASITEM ET KOL MITZVOTAY VEH’YITEM K’DOSHIM LELOHECHEM.

In order to remember and do all My commandments and be Kadosh for your Elohim
