Deuteronomy 32:4

Context

32:4 As for the Rock, 1  his work is perfect,

for all his ways are just.

He is a reliable God who is never unjust,

he is fair 2  and upright.

Deuteronomy 32:18

Context

32:18 You have forgotten 3  the Rock who fathered you,

and put out of mind the God who gave you birth.

Deuteronomy 32:30

Context

32:30 How can one man chase a thousand of them, 4 

and two pursue ten thousand;

unless their Rock had delivered them up, 5 

and the Lord had handed them over?

1 tc The LXX reads Θεός (qeos, “God”) for the MT’s “Rock.”

sn The Hebrew term depicts God as a rocky summit where one may find safety and protection. Within a covenantal context it serves as a reminder to the people that their God has committed himself to their protection in return for their allegiance.

2 tn Or “just” (KJV, NAB, NRSV, NLT) or “righteous” (NASB).

3 tc The Hebrew text is corrupt here; the translation follows the suggestion offered in HALOT 1477 s.v. שׁיה. Cf. NASB, NLT “You neglected”; NIV “You deserted”; NRSV “You were unmindful of.”

4 tn The words “man” and “of them” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation for clarity.

5 tn Heb “sold them” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV, NLT).
