Deuteronomy 1:3

Context
1:3 However, it was not until 1  the first day of the eleventh month 2  of the fortieth year 3  that Moses addressed the Israelites just as 4  the Lord had instructed him to do.

1 tn Heb “in” or “on.” Here there is a contrast between the ordinary time of eleven days (v. 2) and the actual time of forty years, so “not until” brings out that vast disparity.

2 sn The eleventh month is Shebat in the Hebrew calendar, January/February in the modern (Gregorian) calendar.

3 sn The fortieth year would be 1406 b.c. according to the “early” date of the exodus. See E. H. Merrill, Kingdom of Priests, 66-75.

4 tn Heb “according to all which.”
