Deuteronomy 4:19 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The Israelites, therefore, could not see a form of God, but could only hear the voice of His words, when the Lord proclaimed His covenant to them, and gave utterance to the ten words, which He afterwards gave to Moses written upon two tables of stone (Exodus 20:1-14 [17], and Exodus 31:18, compared with Exodus 24:12). On the "tables of stone," see at Exodus 34:1.
