Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 5:29

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 5:29


5:29 O that there were such an heart in them! - A heart to fear God, and keep his commandments forever! The God of heaven is truly and earnestly desirous of the salvation of poor sinners. He has given abundant proof that he is so: he gives us time and space to repent; by his mercies invites us to repentance, and waiteth to be gracious: has sent his son to redeem us, published a general offer of pardon, promised his spirit to those that pray for him; and has said, yea and sworn, that he hath no pleasure in the death of a sinner!


Discussion for Deuteronomy 5:29

  • Brianna on Deuteronomy 5:29
    Have truer words ever been spoken? BY doing things Jehovah 's way, by obeying the Bible, I can truly say that my life is relatively free from problems. By obeying the counsel of abstaining from unclean things, I am not plagued with the problems of alcohol, drugs, or other unclean habits. By obeying the counsel on fornication and adultery, I have not dealt with unwanted pregnancies, or the hardships of being a single parent, or even the heartbreak of courtship with someone who does not live by Bible Standards. The bible truly can help you to have a satisfying life, just as it has helped me.
