31:24 When Moses finished writing on a scroll the words of this law in their entirety, 31:25 he 1 commanded the Levites who carried the ark of the Lord’s covenant, 31:26 “Take this scroll of the law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God. It will remain there as a witness against you, 31:27 for I know about your rebellion and stubbornness. 2 Indeed, even while I have been living among you to this very day, you have rebelled against the Lord; you will be even more rebellious after my death! 3
1 tn Heb “Moses.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.
3 tn Heb “How much more after my death?” The Hebrew text has a sarcastic rhetorical question here; the translation seeks to bring out the force of the question.
