Deuteronomy 1:8

Context
1:8 Look! I have already given the land to you. 1  Go, occupy the territory that I, 2  the Lord, promised 3  to give to your ancestors 4  Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their descendants.” 5 

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

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

3 tn Heb “swore” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT). This refers to God’s promise, made by solemn oath, to give the patriarchs the land.

4 tn Heb “fathers” (also in vv. 11, 21, 35).

5 tn Heb “their seed after them.”
