Deuteronomy 32:16-17


32:16 They made him jealous with other gods, 1 

they enraged him with abhorrent idols. 2 

32:17 They sacrificed to demons, not God,

to gods they had not known;

to new gods who had recently come along,

gods your ancestors 3  had not known about.

1 tc Heb “with strange (things).” The Vulgate actually supplies diis (“gods”).

2 tn Heb “abhorrent (things)” (cf. NRSV). A number of English versions understand this as referring to “idols” (NAB, NIV, NCV, CEV), while NLT supplies “acts.”

3 tn Heb “your fathers.”
