Deuteronomy 11:8

11:8 Now pay attention to all the commandments 1  I am giving 2  you today, so that you may be strong enough to enter and possess the land where you are headed, 3 

Deuteronomy 11:22

Context
11:22 For if you carefully observe all of these commandments 4  I am giving you 5  and love the Lord your God, live according to his standards, 6  and remain loyal to him,

1 tn Heb “the commandment.” The singular מִצְוָה (mitsvah, “commandment”) speaks here as elsewhere of the whole corpus of covenant stipulations in Deuteronomy (cf. 6:1, 25; 7:11; 8:1).

2 tn Heb “commanding” (so NASB, NRSV). For stylistic reasons, to avoid redundancy, “giving” has been used in the translation (likewise in vv. 13, 27).

3 tn Heb “which you are crossing over there to possess it.”

4 tn Heb “this commandment.” See note at Deut 5:30.

5 tn Heb “commanding you to do it.” For stylistic reasons, to avoid redundancy, “giving” has been used in the translation and “to do it” has been left untranslated.

6 tn Heb “walk in all his ways” (so KJV, NIV); TEV “do everything he commands.”
