Deuteronomy 32:4

Context

32:4 As for the Rock, 1  his work is perfect,

for all his ways are just.

He is a reliable God who is never unjust,

he is fair 2  and upright.

Deuteronomy 32:30-31

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?

32:31 For our enemies’ 5  rock is not like our Rock,

as even our enemies concede.

1 tc The LXX reads Θεός (qeos, “God”) for the MT’s “Rock.”

sn The Hebrew term depicts God as a rocky summit where one may find safety and protection. Within a covenantal context it serves as a reminder to the people that their God has committed himself to their protection in return for their allegiance.

2 tn Or “just” (KJV, NAB, NRSV, NLT) or “righteous” (NASB).

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).

5 tn Heb “their,” but the referent (enemies) is specified in the translation for the sake of clarity.
