Deuteronomy 9:18-19

Context
9:18 Then I again fell down before the Lord for forty days and nights; I ate and drank nothing because of all the sin you had committed, doing such evil before the Lord as to enrage him. 9:19 For I was terrified at the Lord’s intense anger 1  that threatened to destroy you. But he 2  listened to me this time as well.

1 tn Heb “the anger and the wrath.” Although many English versions translate as two terms, this construction is a hendiadys which serves to intensify the emotion (cf. NAB, TEV “fierce anger”).

2 tn Heb “the Lord.” See note on “he” in 9:3.
