Deuteronomy 32:24-25

Context

32:24 They will be starved by famine,

eaten by plague, and bitterly stung; 1 

I will send the teeth of wild animals against them,

along with the poison of creatures that crawl in the dust.

32:25 The sword will make people childless outside,

and terror will do so inside;

they will destroy 2  both the young man and the virgin,

the infant and the gray-haired man.

Deuteronomy 32:30

Context

32:30 How can one man chase a thousand of them, 3 

and two pursue ten thousand;

unless their Rock had delivered them up, 4 

and the Lord had handed them over?

1 tn The Hebrew term קֶטֶב (qetev) is probably metaphorical here for the sting of a disease (HALOT 1091-92 s.v.).

2 tn A verb is omitted here in the Hebrew text; for purposes of English style one suitable to the context is supplied.

3 tn The words “man” and “of them” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “sold them” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT).
