Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 32:15

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 32:15


32:15 Jeshurun - Israel whom he calls right or upright, (as the word signifies) partly by way of instruction to mind them what they professed and ought to be; and partly by way of exprobration, to shew them what a shame it was to degenerate so much from their name and profession. Kicked - As well fed cattle use to do: he grew insolent and rebellious against God and against his word and spirit.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 32:15

  • Jeffrey on Deuteronomy 32:15
    Who did Jeshurun kick? Did Jeshurun kick Him out?
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 32:15
    Jeffrey, sometimes Israel is referred to as Jeshurun. Apparently, used affectionately with poetic connotation. (see also references to this name in Deut 33:5, 26; Isa 44:2).

    The message in the passage you referred to, is that God has cared for His children, Israel, right from their beginning, feeding them the best of the earth had to offer. But they committed spiritual adultery & turned aside from the Lord, & so they are thus described in v15 (that they became lazy & insensitive to the things of God & turned to the gods of the nations).
