Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 32:5


32:5 They - The Israelites. Their spot - The wickedness with which they are stained, is not of his children - Plainly shews they are not his children, but the devil's. God's children have no such spot. Indeed this text does not affirm, they have any spot at all. Perverse - Froward and untractable: Crooked - Irregular and disorderly.

    To understand this better, just read the whole book of Deuteronomy and then re-read the chapter of the verse you're having difficulty with. Also don't allegorize and please don't say: "well this is what it means to me." It means something specifically!
    Read it. Put it in context. Who is speaking? Who is being spoken to?
    Don't be lazy.
