Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 10:19

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 10:19


10:17 Regardeth not persons - Whether Jews or Gentiles, but deals justly and equally with all sorts of men; and as whosoever fears and obeys him shall be accepted, so all incorrigible transgressors shall be severely punished, and you no less than other people: therefore do not flatter yourselves as if God would bear with your sins because of his particular kindness to you or to your fathers.

10:18 He doth execute - That is, plead their cause, and give them right against their potent adversaries, and therefore he expects you should do so too.
