Deuteronomy 28:1-14. BLESSINGS OF OBEDIENCE.

(1) Will set thee on high.--Literally, will make thee Most High, using a name of God, as in Deuteronomy 26:19. Compare what is said of Jerusalem. "She (Jerusalem) shall be called Jehovah-Tzidkenu" (Jeremiah 33:16), and "the name of the city from that day shall be Jehovah-Shammah" (Ezekiel 48:35), and "I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God" (Revelation 3:12), and "His Name shall be in their foreheads" (Revelation 22:4).

Verse 1. - The blessing. The condition sine qua non of all enjoyment of the Divine bounty was obedience on the part of the people to the word and Law of Jehovah their God. This rendered, the blessing would come on them rich and full, and abide with them (cf. vers. 2, 9, 13, 14). 28:1-14 This chapter is a very large exposition of two words, the blessing and the curse. They are real things and have real effects. The blessings are here put before the curses. God is slow to anger, but swift to show mercy. It is his delight to bless. It is better that we should be drawn to what is good by a child-like hope of God's favour, than that we be frightened to it by a slavish fear of his wrath. The blessing is promised, upon condition that they diligently hearken to the voice of God. Let them keep up religion, the form and power of it, in their families and nation, then the providence of God would prosper all their outward concerns.
