  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Door-posts 
  The  Jews  were  commanded  to  write  the  divine  name  on  the  posts 
  (mezuzoth')  of  their  doors  (Deut.  6:9).  The  Jews, 
  misunderstanding  this  injunction,  adopted  the  custom  of  writing 
  on  a  slip  of  parchment  these  verses  (Deut.  6:4-9,  and  11:13-21), 
  which  they  enclosed  in  a  reed  or  cylinder  and  fixed  on  the 
  right-hand  door-post  of  every  room  in  the  house.
