Deuteronomy 32:25 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

For this foolish apostasy the Lord would severely visit His people. This visitation is represented indeed in Deuteronomy 32:19, as the consequence of apostasy that had taken place, - not, however, as a punishment already inflicted, but simply as a resolution which god had formed and would carry out, - an evident proof that we have no song here belonging to the time when God visited with severe punishments the Israelites who had fallen into idolatry. In Deuteronomy 32:19 the determination to reject the degenerate children is announced, and in Deuteronomy 32:20-22 this is still further defined and explained.

Deuteronomy 32:19

"And the Lord saw it, and rejected - from indignation at His sons and daughters." The object to "saw" may easily be supplied from the context: He saw the idolatry of the people, and rejected those who followed idols, and that because of indignation that His sons and daughters practised such abominations. The expression "he saw" simply serves to bring out the causal link between the apostasy and the punishment. ויּנאץ has been very well rendered by Kamphausen, "He resolved upon rejection," since Deuteronomy 32:20. clearly show that the rejection had only been resolved upon by God, and was not yet carried out. In what follows, Moses puts this resolution into the mouth of the Lord Himself.
