Deuteronomy 32:26-28

Context
The Weakness of Other Gods

32:26 “I said, ‘I want to cut them in pieces. 1 

I want to make people forget they ever existed.

32:27 But I fear the reaction 2  of their enemies,

for 3  their adversaries would misunderstand

and say, “Our power is great, 4 

and the Lord has not done all this!”’

32:28 They are a nation devoid of wisdom,

and there is no understanding among them.

2 tn Heb “anger.”

3 tn Heb “lest.”

4 tn Heb “Our hand is high.” Cf. NAB “Our own hand won the victory.”
