Deuteronomy 32:26-27

Context
The Weakness of Other Gods

32:26 “I said, ‘I want to cut them in pieces. 1 

I want to make people forget they ever existed.

32:27 But I fear the reaction 2  of their enemies,

for 3  their adversaries would misunderstand

and say, “Our power is great, 4 

and the Lord has not done all this!”’

Deuteronomy 32:36

Context

32:36 The Lord will judge his people,

and will change his plans concerning 5  his servants;

when he sees that their power has disappeared,

and that no one is left, whether confined or set free.

1 tc The LXX reads “I said I would scatter them.” This reading is followed by a number of English versions (e.g., KJV, ASV, NIV, NCV, NRSV, NLT, CEV).

2 tn Heb “anger.”

3 tn Heb “lest.”

4 tn Heb “Our hand is high.” Cf. NAB “Our own hand won the victory.”

5 tn The translation understands the verb in the sense of “be grieved, relent” (cf. HALOT 689 s.v. נחם hitp 2); cf. KJV, ASV “repent himself”; NLT “will change his mind.” Another option is to translate “will show compassion to” (see BDB 637 s.v. נחם); cf. NASB, NIV, NRSV.
