This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

In Deu 6:20-25, the teaching to the children, which is only briefly hinted at in Deu 6:7, is more fully explained. The Israelites were to instruct their children and descendants as to the nature, meaning, and object of the commandments of the Lord; and in reply to the inquiries of their sons, to teach them what the Lord had done for the redemption of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt, and how He had brought them into the promised land, and thus to awaken in the younger generation love to the Lord and to His commandments. The “great and sore miracles” (Deu 6:22) were the Egyptian plagues, like מֹפְתִּים, in Deu 4:34. - “To fear,” etc., i.e., that we might fear the Lord.
