Deuteronomy 30:1-5

Context
The Results of Covenant Reaffirmation

30:1 “When you have experienced all these things, both the blessings and the curses 1  I have set before you, you will reflect upon them 2  in all the nations where the Lord your God has banished you. 30:2 Then if you and your descendants 3  turn to the Lord your God and obey him with your whole mind and being 4  just as 5  I am commanding you today, 30:3 the Lord your God will reverse your captivity and have pity on you. He will turn and gather you from all the peoples among whom he 6  has scattered you. 30:4 Even if your exiles are in the most distant land, 7  from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back. 30:5 Then he 8  will bring you to the land your ancestors 9  possessed and you also will possess it; he will do better for you and multiply you more than he did your ancestors.

1 tn Heb “the blessing and the curse.”

2 tn Heb “and you bring (them) back to your heart.”

3 tn Heb “sons” (so NASB); KJV, ASV, NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT “children.”

4 tn Or “heart and soul” (also in vv. 6, 10).

5 tn Heb “according to all.”

6 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.

7 tn Heb “are at the farthest edge of the heavens.” The Hebrew term שָׁמַיִם (shamayim) may be translated “heaven(s)” or “sky” depending on the context.

8 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” See note on the second occurrence of the word “he” in v. 3.
