8 ¶ If there arise a matter too hard for thee in iudgement, betweene blood and blood, betweene plea and plea, and betweene stroke and stroke, being matters of controuersie within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee vp into the place, which the Lord thy God shall choose;
11 According to the sentence of the Law which they shall teach thee, and according to the Iudgement which they shall tell thee thou shalt doe: thou shalt not decline from the Sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.
12 And the man that will doe presumptuously, and will not hearken vnto the Priest (that standeth to minister there before the Lord thy God) or vnto the Iudge, euen that man shall die, and thou shalt put away the euill from Israel.
14 ¶ When thou art come vnto the land which the Lord thy God giueth thee, and shalt possesse it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a King ouer mee, like as all the nations that are about me:
15 Thou shalt in any wise set him King ouer thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose. One from among thy brethren shalt thou set King ouer thee: thou mayest not set a stranger ouer thee, which is not thy brother.
16 But he shall not multiply horses to himselfe, nor cause the people to returne to Egypt, to the ende that hee should multiply horses: for as much as the Lord hath said vnto you, Yee shall hencefoorth returne no more that way.
20 That his heart bee not lifted vp aboue his brethren, and that hee turne not aside from the Commandement, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that hee may prolong his dayes in his kingdome, hee, and his children in the midst of Israel.

Timothy Wayne George's Deuteronomy Chapter 17 comment on 10/04/2012, 11:03pm...
Deuteronomy 17:17 The King was not to multiply wives, less he would fail to keep the law. He was not to multiply silver or gold. These are all examples for us today for government officials to follow, so that they rule with integrity. Christianity teaches one man, for one woman, and if this is not done then the land will be caused to sin. We need to pray for leaders with integrity who will pattern themselves after the laws of God. Then the blessings of God will come upon our country.

Good point! You are right, we are not to worship Saints or Holy men. However, we can still pray to them, and learn of them. Jesus is the son of God, and God is our one and only Lord. Only God should we worship.

This verse tell us not to worship all creatures even heavenly. What about the saints and all the people proclaimed to be holy by man. Man should only worship God through Jesus Christ.
