(5) Only if thou carefully hearken.--"Then there will be none among thee in want." So Rashi expounds, in the very spirit of the passage in Acts 4.

Verses 5, 6. - This blessing, though promised and certified, should come only if they were careful to observe and do all that God commanded them. The for at the beginning of ver. 6 connects this with ver. 4. Thou shalt lend. The verb in Kal signifies to borrow on a pledge; in Hiph. to lend on a pledge, as here; it is a denominative from the Hebrew noun signifying pledge.
