SEV Biblia, Chapter 29:1 Â¶ Estas son las palabras del pacto que el SEÑOR mandó a Moisés, para que concertase con los hijos de Israel en la tierra de Moab, además del pacto que concertó con ellos en Horeb.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 29:1 Verse 1. These are the words of the covenant] This verse seems properly to belong to the preceding chapter, as a widely different subject is taken up at ver. 2 of this; and it is distinguished as the 69th verse in some of the most correct copies of the Hebrew Bible.
Commanded Moses to make] trkl lichroth, to cut, alluding to the covenant sacrifice which was offered on the occasion and divided, as is explained, "Gen. xv. 18".
Beside the covenant which he made-in Horeb.] What is mentioned here is an additional institution to the ten words given on Horeb; and the curses denounced here are different from those denounced against the transgressors of the decalogue.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. These [are] the words of the covenant , etc.] Not what go before, but follow after, in the next chapters, to the end of the book; in which are various promises of grace, and promises of good things, both with respect to Jews and Gentiles, intermixed with other things: which the Lord commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab ; or to declare unto them, and acquaint them with, they being now in the plains of Moab, ready to enter into the land of, Canaan: besides the covenant which he made with them at Horeb : or Sinai; which Jarchi interprets, besides the curses in Leviticus, delivered on Sinai; he seems to have respect to ( Leviticus 26:14-46). This covenant was different from that at Sinai, spoken of ( Exodus 24:8); being made not only at a different time, at near forty years’ distance, and at a different place, nor Sinai; but when Israel were come nearer Mount Sion, and were actually possessed of part of their inheritance, the land of promise, that part of the land of Moab which the two kings of the Amorites had seized and dwelt in, whom Israel had dispossessed; and with different persons, that generation being dead, excepting a very few, which were at Sinai: but it was different as to the substance and matter of it, it not only including that, and being a renewal of it, as is generally thought, but containing such declarations of grace which had not been made before, not only respecting the repenting and returning Israelites, but the Gentiles also; for this covenant was made with the stranger, as well as with Israel, ( Deuteronomy 29:11); and relates to the times of the Messiah, the call of the Gentiles, the conversion of the Jews, and their return to their own land in the latter day.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - Both former mercies, and fresh mercies, should be thought on by us a motives to obedience. The hearing ear, and seeing eye, and the understanding heart, are the gift of God. All that have them, have the from him. God gives not only food and raiment, but wealth and larg possessions, to many to whom he does not give grace. Many enjoy the gifts, who have not hearts to perceive the Giver, nor the true desig and use of the gifts. We are bound, in gratitude and interest, as wel as in duty and faithfulness, to keep the words of the covenant.
