” Gather the people together, men and women and children, and thy stranger that is within their gates, that they may fear, and that they may learn, and fear the Lord your God, and observe to do all the words of this law; And that their children, which have not known anything, may hear, and learn to fear the Lord your God.” (Deut. 31:12-13)
