NET © Notes

tn Heb “mouth.”

sn This law scroll must not leave your lips. The ancient practice of reading aloud to oneself as an aid to memorization is in view here.

tn Heb “read it in undertones,” or “recite it quietly” (see HALOT 1:237).

tn Heb “be careful to do.”

tn Heb “you will make your way prosperous.”

tn Heb “and be wise,” but the word can mean “be successful” by metonymy.
