The Bible in a Year: Day 58 (Deuteronomy 32-34)

Deuteronomy 32:6 — I wonder why the KJV translated ‏קנה ‎as “bought” here. It seems to get in the way of the parallelism, which should be “created/made” not “bought/made.” I suppose that “bought” fits with the meaning “acquire” that קנה has in certain contexts, but again, it gets in the way of this synonymous parallel.

Deuteronomy 32:9 — Interesting how the LORD has a portion/inheritance. Most of the tribes got land; the Levites got the LORD; the LORD gets all of Israel.

Deuteronomy 32:16-17 — This is in the background of 1 Corinthians 8-10, especially 10:20-22.

Deuteronomy 32 — It’s pretty amazing to see how much Deuteronomy and chapter 32 in particular influenced Isaiah. I can’t say that I’ve taken much note of that before now. I’m going to have to read them against each other and see just how extensive the connection is.

Deuteronomy 34:1-4 — I never took note of this, but it seems like the devil is mimicking, perhaps even mocking, what God did with Moses here when he takes Jesus up to the mountaintop and shows him all the kingdoms of the world (Matt 4:8; Luke 4:5).

Deuteronomy 34:10 — This makes Matthew 11:27/Luke 10:22 all the more significant.
