Deuteronomy 4:1-40

This is the second part of Moses’ first discourse, and consists of an exhortation based on God’s gracious dealings, as described in chapter 1 to 3.

  1. What is said about God in this portion, and about his relation to Israel?
  2. What is said about the word of God, spoken by Moses? (compare v 2 with 12:32); also note Pro 30:6; Matt 5:17-18; Rev 22:18, 19.
  3. Against what sin, in particular, are the people warned, and by what arguments is the warning reinforced?
