Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 6:18

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 6:18


6:16 Ye shall not tempt - Not provoke him, as the following instance explains. Sinners, especially presumptuous sinners, are said to tempt God, that is, to make a trial of God, whether he be, so wise as to see their sins, so just and true and powerful as to take vengeance on them, concerning which they are very apt to doubt because of the present impunity and prosperity of many such persons.

6:17 Ye diligently keep - Negligence will ruin us: but we cannot be saved without diligence.
