Deuteronomy 9:5

Context
9:5 It is not because of your righteousness, or even your inner uprightness, 6  that you have come here to possess their land.

Deuteronomy 34:4

Context
34:4 Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ 13  I have let you see it, 14  but you will not cross over there.”

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.”

6 tn Heb “uprightness of your heart” (so NASB, NRSV). The Hebrew word צְדָקָה (tsÿdaqah, “righteousness”), though essentially synonymous here with יֹשֶׁר (yosher, “uprightness”), carries the idea of conformity to an objective standard. The term יֹשֶׁר has more to do with an inner, moral quality (cf. NAB, NIV “integrity”). Neither, however, was grounds for the Lord’s favor. As he states in both vv. 4-5, the main reason he allowed Israel to take this land was the sinfulness of the Canaanites who lived there (cf. Gen 15:16).

7 tn Heb “the Lord.” See note on “he” in 9:3.

8 tn Heb “fathers.”

9 tn Heb “in order to establish you today to him for a people and he will be to you for God.” Verses 10-13 are one long sentence in Hebrew. The translation divides this into two sentences for stylistic reasons.

10 tn Heb “fathers” (also in v. 25).

11 tn The words “I also call on you” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons. In the Hebrew text vv. 19-20 are one long sentence, which the translation divides into two.

12 tn Heb “he is your life and the length of your days to live.”

13 tn Heb “seed” (so KJV, ASV).

14 tn The Hebrew text includes “with your eyes,” but this is redundant in English and is left untranslated.
