Deuteronomy 1:6-8

Context
Events at Horeb

1:6 The Lord our God spoke to us at Horeb and said, “You have stayed 1  in the area of this mountain long enough. 1:7 Get up now, 2  resume your journey, heading for 3  the Amorite hill country, to all its areas 4  including the arid country, 5  the highlands, the Shephelah, 6  the Negev, 7  and the coastal plain – all of Canaan and Lebanon as far as the Great River, that is, the Euphrates. 1:8 Look! I have already given the land to you. 8  Go, occupy the territory that I, 9  the Lord, promised 10  to give to your ancestors 11  Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their descendants.” 12

4 tn Heb “its dwelling places.”

5 tn Heb “the Arabah” (so ASV, NAB, NIV, NRSV).

sn The Shephelah is the geographical region between the Mediterranean coastal plain and the Judean hill country.

7 sn The Hebrew term Negev means literally “desert” or “south” (so KJV, ASV). It refers to the area south of Beer Sheba and generally west of the Arabah Valley between the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba.

8 tn Heb “I have placed before you the land.”

9 tn Heb “the Lord.” Since the Lord is speaking, it is preferable for clarity to supply the first person pronoun in the translation.
