Deuteronomy 4:24

Context
4:24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire; he is a jealous God. 1 

Deuteronomy 5:22

Context
The Narrative of the Sinai Revelation and Israel’s Response

5:22 The Lord said these things to your entire assembly at the mountain from the middle of the fire, the cloud, and the darkness with a loud voice, and that was all he said. 2  Then he inscribed the words 3  on two stone tablets and gave them to me.

1 tn The juxtaposition of the Hebrew terms אֵשׁ (’esh, “fire”) and קַנָּא (qanna’, “jealous”) is interesting in light of Deut 6:15 where the Lord is seen as a jealous God whose anger bursts into a destructive fire. For God to be “jealous” means that his holiness and uniqueness cannot tolerate pretended or imaginary rivals. It is not petty envy but response to an act of insubordination that must be severely judged (see H. Peels, NIDOTTE 3:937-40).

2 tn Heb “and he added no more” (so KJV, NASB, NRSV); NLT “This was all he said at that time.”

3 tn Heb “them”; the referent (the words spoken by the Lord) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
