Strong's Hebrew 3117: A day
(11) Beware that.--From Deuteronomy 8:11 to Deuteronomy 8:18 inclusive is one long sentence in the Hebrew, and may be taken thus: "Take heed to thyself lest thou forget Jehovah thy God (so that thou keep not, &c.); lest thou eat and be satisfied (while thou buildest, &c.); and thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget Jehovah (thy deliverer, thy leader, thy sustainer), and say in thine heart, My power, &c.; and (take heed) that thou remember Jehovah thy God, that it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth," &c. The caution is prophetic, as may be seen by the following examples:--

"When Rehoboam had . . . strengthened himself, he forsook the law of the Lord, and all Israel with him" (2Chronicles 12:1).

"But when he (Uzziah) was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction" (2Chronicles 26:16).

"Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up" (2Chronicles 32:25).

Other instances might easily be added.

Verses 11-14. - Wealth is apt to engender in the possessor of it a spirit of self-gratulation and pride, and abundance of good things to induce men to be luxurious, "to trust in uncertain riches," and to be forgetful of the bounteous hand from which all that they enjoy has come. Against this the people are here cautioned and warned.
