Deuteronomy 29:2-8

Context
The Exodus, Wandering, and Conquest Reviewed

29:2 Moses proclaimed to all Israel as follows: “You have seen all that the Lord did 1  in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, all his servants, and his land. 29:3 Your eyes have seen the great judgments, 2  those signs and mighty wonders. 29:4 But to this very day the Lord has not given you an understanding mind, perceptive eyes, or discerning ears! 3  29:5 I have led you through the desert for forty years. Your clothing has not worn out 4  nor have your sandals 5  deteriorated. 29:6 You have eaten no bread and drunk no wine or beer – all so that you might know that I 6  am the Lord your God! 29:7 When you came to this place King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan came out to make war and we defeated them. 29:8 Then we took their land and gave it as an inheritance to Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh.

1 tn The Hebrew text includes “to your eyes,” but this is redundant in English style (cf. the preceding “you have seen”) and is omitted in the translation.

2 tn Heb “testings.” This is a reference to the plagues; see note at 4:34.

3 tn Heb “a heart to know, eyes to see and ears to hear” (NASB similar); NAB, NRSV “a mind to understand, or eyes to see, or ears to hear.”

4 tn The Hebrew text includes “on you.” This has not been included in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tn The Hebrew text includes “from on your feet.”

6 tc The LXX reads “that he is the Lord your God.”
