Deuteronomy 4:37 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"In tribulation to thee (in thy trouble), all these things (the threatened punishments and sufferings) will befall thee; at the end of the days (see at Genesis 49:1) thou wilt turn to Jehovah thy God, and hearken to His voice." With this comprehensive thought Moses brings his picture of the future to a close. (On the subject-matter, vid., Leviticus 26:39-40.) Returning to the Lord and hearkening to His voice presuppose that the Lord will be found by those who earnestly seek Him; "for (Deuteronomy 4:31) He is a merciful God, who does not let His people go, nor destroy them, and who does not forget the covenant with the fathers" (cf. Leviticus 26:42 and Leviticus 26:45). הרפּה, to let loose, to withdraw the hand from a person (Joshua 10:6).
