Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 25:11

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 25:11


25:9 Loose his shoe - As a sign of his resignation of all his right to the woman, and to her husband's inheritance: for as the shoe was a sign of one's power and right, #Psa 60:8 108:9|, so the parting with the shoe was a token of the alienation of such right; and as a note of infamy, to signify that by this disingenuous action he was unworthy to be amongst free - men, and fit to be reduced to the condition of the meanest servants, who used to go barefoot, #Isa 20:2|,4.

25:10 His name - That is, his person, and his posterity also. So it was a lasting blot.

25:13 A great and a small - The great to buy with, the small for selling.
