nor let them slip away from your memory as long as you live

“However, take care and be earnestly on your guard not to forget the things which your own eyes have seen, nor let them slip from your memory as long as you live, but teach them to your children and to your children’s children.” (DT 4: 9)

This translation is a little bit different from the original. In the original we have not a memory, but a heart: “nor let them slip away from your heart…” This is the right place where God’s words should land—our hearts. When we commune with His words, we are close to His heart, and we put Him in our hearts—this is the beginning of community and our everlasting lives.

“Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of everlasting life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
