Deuteronomy 29:18 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"That thou shouldest enter into the covenant of the Lord thy God, and the engagement on oath, which the Lord thy God concludeth with thee to-day." עבר with בּ, as in Job 33:28, "to enter into," expresses entire entrance, which goes completely through the territory entered, and is more emphatic than בברית בּוא (2 Chronicles 15:12). "Into the oath:" the covenant confirmed with an oath, covenants being always accompanied with oaths (vid., Genesis 26:28).
