Deuteronomy 27:10

27:10 You must obey him 1  and keep his commandments and statutes that I am giving you today.”

Deuteronomy 27:15

27:15 ‘Cursed is the one 2  who makes a carved or metal image – something abhorrent 3  to the Lord, the work of the craftsman 4  – and sets it up in a secret place.’ Then all the people will say, ‘Amen!’ 5 

1 tn Heb “listen to the voice of the Lord your God.” Here “listen” (NAB “hearken”) means “obey” (cf. KJV, ASV, NASB). The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.

2 tn Heb “man,” but in a generic sense here.

3 tn The Hebrew term translated here “abhorrent” (תּוֹעֵבָה, toevah) speaks of attitudes and/or behaviors so vile as to be reprehensible to a holy God. See note on the word “abhorrent” in Deut 7:25.

4 tn Heb “craftsman’s hands.”

5 tn Or “So be it!” The term is an affirmation expressing agreement with the words of the Levites.
