Deuteronomy 19:17-18

Context
19:17 then both parties to the controversy must stand before the Lord, that is, before the priests and judges 1  who will be in office in those days. 19:18 The judges will thoroughly investigate the matter, and if the witness should prove to be false and to have given false testimony against the accused, 2 

1 tn The appositional construction (“before the Lord, that is, before the priests and judges”) indicates that these human agents represented the Lord himself, that is, they stood in his place (cf. Deut 16:18-20; 17:8-9).

2 tn Heb “his brother” (also in the following verse).
