Deuteronomy 4:29-31

Context
4:29 But if you seek the Lord your God from there, you will find him, if, indeed, you seek him with all your heart and soul. 1  4:30 In your distress when all these things happen to you in the latter days, 2  if you return to the Lord your God and obey him 3  4:31 (for he 4  is a merciful God), he will not let you down 5  or destroy you, for he cannot 6  forget the covenant with your ancestors that he confirmed by oath to them.

1 tn Or “mind and being.” See Deut 6:5.

2 sn The phrase is not used here in a technical sense for the eschaton, but rather refers to a future time when Israel will be punished for its sin and experience exile. See Deut 31:29.

3 tn Heb “hear his voice.” The expression is an idiom meaning “obey,” occurring in Deut 8:20; 9:23; 13:18; 21:18, 20; 26:14, 17; 27:10; 28:1-2, 15, 45, 62; 30:2, 8, 10, 20.

4 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” See note on “he” in 4:3.

5 tn Heb “he will not drop you,” i.e., “will not abandon you” (cf. NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT).

6 tn Or “will not.” The translation understands the imperfect verbal form to have an added nuance of capability here.
