Deuteronomy 6:2-3

Context
6:2 and that you may so revere the Lord your God that you will keep all his statutes and commandments 1  that I am giving 2  you – you, your children, and your grandchildren – all your lives, to prolong your days. 6:3 Pay attention, Israel, and be careful to do this so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in number 3  – as the Lord, God of your ancestors, 4  said to you, you will have a land flowing with milk and honey.

1 tn Here the terms are not the usual חֻקִּים (khuqqim) and מִשְׁפָּטִים (mishpatim; as in v. 1) but חֻקֹּת (khuqqot, “statutes”) and מִצְוֹת (mitsot, “commandments”). It is clear that these terms are used interchangeably and that their technical precision ought not be overly stressed.

2 tn Heb “commanding.” For stylistic reasons, to avoid redundancy, “giving” has been used in the translation.

3 tn Heb “may multiply greatly” (so NASB, NRSV); the words “in number” have been supplied in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “fathers” (also in vv. 10, 18, 23).
