Deuteronomy 5:1-5

Context
The Opening Exhortation

5:1 Then Moses called all the people of Israel together and said to them: 1  “Listen, Israel, to the statutes and ordinances that I am about to deliver to you today; learn them and be careful to keep them! 5:2 The Lord our God made a covenant with us at Horeb. 5:3 He 2  did not make this covenant with our ancestors 3  but with us, we who are here today, all of us living now. 5:4 The Lord spoke face to face with you at the mountain, from the middle of the fire. 5:5 (I was standing between the Lord and you at that time to reveal to you the message 4  of the Lord, because you were afraid of the fire and would not go up the mountain.) He said:

1 tn Heb “and Moses called to all Israel and he said to them”; NAB, NASB, NIV “Moses summoned (convened NRSV) all Israel.”

2 tn Heb “the Lord.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.

3 tn Heb “fathers.”

4 tn Or “word” (so KJV, NASB, NIV); NRSV “words.”
