Deuteronomy 8:2

Context
8:2 Remember the whole way by which he 1  has brought you these forty years through the desert 2  so that he might, by humbling you, test you to see if you have it within you to keep his commandments or not.

Deuteronomy 8:18

Context
8:18 You must remember the Lord your God, for he is the one who gives ability to get wealth; if you do this he will confirm his covenant that he made by oath to your ancestors, 3  even as he has to this day.

1 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Or “wilderness” (so KJV, NRSV, NLT); likewise in v. 15.

3 tc Smr and Lucian add “Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” the standard way of rendering this almost stereotypical formula (cf. Deut 1:8; 6:10; 9:5, 27; 29:13; 30:20; 34:4). The MT’s harder reading presumptively argues for its originality, however.
