SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:11 cuando viniere todo Israel a presentarse delante del SEÑOR tu Dios en el lugar que él escogiere, leerás esta ley delante de todo Israel a oídos de ellos.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. When all Israel is come to appear before the Lord thy God , etc.] As all the males were obliged to do three times in the year, and one of those times was the feast of tabernacles, and so a proper season for the reading of the law; (see Exodus 23:14-17); in the place which the Lord shall choose ; the city of Jerusalem, and the temple there: thou shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing ; the book of Deuteronomy, as Jarchi, or it may be the whole Pentateuch: who were to read it is not expressly said; the speech seems to be directed to the priests and elders, to whom the law written by Moses was delivered, ( Deuteronomy 31:9); and who were either to read it themselves, or take care that it should be read. Josephus ascribes this service to the high priest; he says, standing in an high pulpit (or on an high bench), “from whence he may be heard, he must read the laws to all;” but the Jewish writers commonly allot this work to the king, or supreme governor, who at least was to read some parts of it; so Jarchi says, the king at first read Deuteronomy, as it is said in the Misnah f560 ; “he read from the beginning of Deuteronomy to ( Deuteronomy 6:4); hear, O Israel, etc. and then added ( Deuteronomy 11:13); then ( Deuteronomy 14:22); after that ( Deuteronomy 26:12); then the section of the king, ( Deuteronomy 17:14); next the blessings and the curses, ( Deuteronomy 27:15-26 28:16-68), with which he finished the whole section;” and so we find that Joshua, the governor of the people after Moses, read all his laws, ( Joshua 8:35); and so did King Josiah at the finding of the book of the law, ( 2 Kings 23:2), and Ezra, ( Nehemiah 8:3). The king received the book from the high priest standing, and read it sitting; but King Agrippa stood and read, for which he was praised.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-13 - Though we read the word in private, we must not think it needless to hear it read in public. This solemn reading of the law must be done in the year of release. The year of release was typical of gospel grace which is called the acceptable year of the Lord; for our pardon an liberty by Christ, engage us to keep his commandments. It must be rea to all Israel, men, women, children, and to the strangers. It is the will of God that all people should acquaint themselves with his word It is a rule to all, therefore should be read to all. Whoever has rea of the pains taken by many persons to get scraps of the Scriptures when a whole copy could not be obtained, or safely possessed, will se how thankful we should be for the thousands of copies amongst us. The will also understand the very different situation in which the Israelites were placed for many ages. But the heart of man is s careless, that all will be found too little, to keep up a knowledge of the truths, precepts, and worship of God.
