Discussion for Deuteronomy 31:19

  • John C. on Deuteronomy 31:19
    Clearly..as one tries to know God, one should write the law for himself down. There is something powerful when you speak the word as well as write down and hear the word in your head. We know the word already written in our hearts if we are truly his.
