SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:20 Cuando mañana te preguntare tu hijo, diciendo: Â¿Qué son los testimonios, y estatutos, y derechos, que el SEÑOR nuestro Dios os mandó?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 6:20 Verse 20. And when thy son asketh thee, &c.] "Here," as Mr. Ainsworth justly remarks, "followeth a brief catechism, containing the grounds of religion." What mean the testimonies, &c.] The Hebrew language has no word to express to mean or signify, and therefore uses simply the substantive verb what is, i. e., what mean or signify, &c. The seven thin ears ARE, i. e., signify, seven years of famine. This form of speech frequently occurs.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 20. And when thy son asketh thee in time to come , etc.] Or “tomorrow” f70 ; that is, in later times, as Jarchi interprets it; any time after this, and particularly after they were come into the land of Canaan, when the several laws, statutes, and ordinances appointed, would take place and be obeyed: what [mean] the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God hath commanded you ? what is the reason of the various rites, customs, and usages, the observance of which is directed to, such as the feasts of passover, pentecost, tabernacles, sacrifices, and other duties of religion?
Ver. 21 Then shall thou say unto thy son , etc.] In order to lead him into the spring and original of them, and to acquaint him with the goodness of God, which laid them under obligation to observe them: we were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt ; were brought into bondage and slavery to Pharaoh king of Egypt, into whose country their ancestors came, and where they resided many years, and at length were reduced to the utmost servitude and misery: and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand ; by the exertion of his mighty power, which the Egyptians and their king could not withstand, as a token of his care and kindness to us; by the ties of which we are bound in gratitude to observe his commands. The Targum of Jonathan is, “the Word of the Lord brought us, etc.” and it was Christ the Son of God that was from first to last concerned in that affair, even from the appearance to Moses in the bush to Israel’s coming out of Egypt.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-25 - Moses gives charge to keep God's commandments. Negligence will ruin us but we cannot be saved without diligence. It is our interest, as wel as our duty, to be religious. It will be our life. Godliness has the promise of the continuance and comfort of the life that now is, as fa as it is for God's glory. It will be our righteousness. It is onl through the Mediator we can be righteous before God. The knowledge of the spirituality and excellency of the holy law of God, is suited to show sinful man his need of a Saviour, and to prepare his heart to welcome a free salvation. The gospel honours the law, not only in the perfect obedience of the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ; but in tha it is a plan for bringing back apostate rebels and enemies, be repentance, faith, forgiveness, and renewing grace, to love God abov all things, even in this world; and in the world above, to love his perfectly, even as angels love him __________________________________________________________________
