Deuteronomy 32:6

Context

32:6 Is this how you repay 1  the Lord,

you foolish, unwise people?

Is he not your father, your creator?

He has made you and established you.

Deuteronomy 32:9

Context

32:9 For the Lord’s allotment is his people,

Jacob is his special possession. 2 

1 tn Or “treat” (TEV).

2 tc Heb “the portion of his inheritance.” The LXX and Smr add “Israel” and BHS suggests the reconstruction: “The Lord’s allotment is Jacob, the portion of his inheritance is Israel” (cf. NAB). While providing good parallelism, it destroys a fine chiastic structure: “allotment” (a), “his people” (b), “Jacob (b’), and “inheritance” (a’).
