Deuteronomy 4:3-6

Context
4:3 You have witnessed what the Lord did at Baal Peor, 1  how he 2  eradicated from your midst everyone who followed Baal Peor. 3  4:4 But you who remained faithful to the Lord your God are still alive to this very day, every one of you. 4:5 Look! I have taught you statutes and ordinances just as the Lord my God told me to do, so that you might carry them out in 4  the land you are about to enter and possess. 4:6 So be sure to do them, because this will testify of your wise understanding 5  to the people who will learn of all these statutes and say, “Indeed, this great nation is a very wise 6  people.”

1 tc The LXX and Syriac read “to Baal Peor,” that is, the god worshiped at that place; see note on the name “Beth Peor” in Deut 3:29.
