Deuteronomy 32:5-6


32:5 His people have been unfaithful 1  to him;

they have not acted like his children 2  – this is their sin. 3 

They are a perverse 4  and deceitful generation.

32:6 Is this how you repay 5  the Lord,

you foolish, unwise people?

Is he not your father, your creator?

He has made you and established you.

1 tc The 3rd person masculine singular שָׁחַת (shakhat) is rendered as 3rd person masculine plural by Smr, a reading supported by the plural suffix on מוּם (mum, “defect”) as well as the plural of בֵּן (ben, “sons”).

tn Heb “have acted corruptly” (so NASB, NIV, NLT); NRSV “have dealt falsely.”

2 tn Heb “(they are) not his sons.”

3 tn Heb “defect” (so NASB). This highly elliptical line suggests that Israel’s major fault was its failure to act like God’s people; in fact, they acted quite the contrary.

4 tn Heb “twisted,” “crooked.” See Ps 18:26.

5 tn Or “treat” (TEV).
