Deuteronomy 31:2 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
In conclusion, Moses sums up the contents of the whole of this preaching of the law in the words, "life and good, and death and evil," as he had already done at Deuteronomy 11:26-27, in the first part of this address, to lay the people by a solemn adjuration under the obligation to be faithful to the Lord, and through this obligation to conclude the covenant afresh. He had set before them this day life and good ("good" equals prosperity and salvation), as well as death and evil (רע, adversity and destruction), by commanding them to love the Lord and walk in His ways. Love is placed first, as in Deuteronomy 6:5, as being the essential principle of the fulfilment of the commandments. Expounding the law was setting before them life and death, salvation and destruction, because the law, as the word of God, was living and powerful, and proved itself in every man a power of life or of death, according to the attitude which he assumed towards it (vid., Deuteronomy 32:47). נדּח, to permit oneself to be torn away to idolatry (as in Deuteronomy 4:19).

forty years he sojourned in Midian, in a state of preparation for his great and important mission
and forty years he guided, led, and governed the Israelites under the express direction and authority of God: in all
I can no more

Now Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they spoke to Pharaoh.
who shall go out before them and come in before them, who shall lead them out and bring them in, that the congregation of the LORD may not be as sheep that have no shepherd."
Even with me the LORD was angry on your account and said, 'You also shall not go in there.
Go up to the top of Pisgah and lift up your eyes westward and northward and southward and eastward, and look at it with your eyes, for you shall not go over this Jordan.
So Moses continued to speak these words to all Israel.
Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eye was undimmed, and his vigor unabated.
I am still as strong today as I was in the day that Moses sent me; my strength now is as my strength was then, for war and for going and coming.
