    40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever. Wow! Wow! Wow! To GOD be all Honor Glory, and Praise.

    Verse 2~Jehovah God's word is perfect and it should not be added to or taken away from.
  • Liberty In Life
    I agree BSP with what The Lord our Creator tells us in V2 and in Rev22 both are in Referance to all Scripture in our Bibles His Book of Prophesy. So why do JW and other Cults disobey Him are they listening to false teachers instead of to Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher Matt23:8-10 don't they ask for His Wisdom Jas1or do they keep asking and still Trust in a Man or Woman's fleshy understanding.

    Verses 15 - 19: I see statues that portrays angels and Jesus Christ in homes and churches, is not this to be forbidden.
  • Freedom In Life
    True Stanjett, Pagans worship their images and even Animals and as you said there are others who have been also been deceived by false teachers so they have been lead to Worship images too. But do we reject them even though some have Polluted what God calls good like Christmas and Easter Remberances. He knows their Hearts and will rescue them Through hearing His Truth shared in Love Rom10 and 11.
  • Liberty in Life
    Very True Stanjett and it is the same with God's Creation of Animals some Worship them and give them His Glory or put them first in their Hearts including before the needs of others. I have heard said that Butterflies are Magic or they are family Reincarnated. So do we reject God's Creation because of their evil thinking No but as you shared we don't Worship them or put them before God or others.
  • Love for Truth
    The name of God (Father,Son,Holyghost) is Jesus search the scriptures for these are they that testify that He is God alone since before day 1 to eternity Deut. 6:4 the Lord our God is only ONE He will not share His glory with another.
  • Knowing God
    Yes They are One in Spirit 1John5:7-21 but not the flesh. Jesus was known as God on earth but He is not our Heavenly Abba Father who is in Authority and gave Jesus His Authority 1Cor13:24-28 The Holy Ghost Testifies of Them both to bring Them Glory John15:26-27 and we don't Blaspheme Him by calling Him a liar. We need God's Wisdom to fully Understand His Truth, we Ask Receive and Believe Jam1:5-8.
  • Love for Truth
    Amen we must understand the truth and realize that Jesus the mighty God ,Jehovah ,heavenly father was manifested in the flesh according to 1 Timothy 3:16 a lot of Christian's are confused about this as Phillip was in John 14:8-9 Jesus said he that hath seen me hath seen the Father.God the one and only manifested in the flesh is Jesus Christ the head of All principality and power.Colossians 2:9-10
  • BSP
    Verse 1: The way that the Israelites viewed the commandments from Jehovah God and if they observed them meant the difference between life and death.
  • A disciple
    They weren't "Sanctuary Cities" like we think of today; where everyone here illegally can be "protected" from the Law of the land: but they were specifically for those who accidentally killed someone, without having wicked intention beforehand. Innocent blood defiles the land and makes the whole country guilty until that innocent blood is removed, by the blood of the wicked murderer who shed it.
  • Jacquelyne
    I am taken at the fact that Moses built 3 cities specifically for people who committed crimes against their neighbors accidentally. He gave them a place of saftey. I believe these were cities of refuge. You cannot do that for your fellowman unless you have a forgiving heart. We must allow GOD to be the only judge in these matters. We all make mistakes but we all don't get caught. Love
  • Brianna vs. 15-20
    Idol worship! Vs. 15 warned the Jews, and warns us, to be very careful and watch ourselves closely. God warned about being "seduced" into idol worship. I like vs. 16 where it warns about making idols to represent any symbol. The revered cross has certainly crept into Christianity. People view it as a trinket and use it regularly in worship. Is it befitting for a Christian to have?
  • Irene123
    The O.T. name of God translates into Jesus in the Greek of the N.T., but - the Jews didn't believe in Jesus so ..................
  • Seven Trumpets
    The "Original" in Hebrew; Yode He Vav He, pronounced by many as, Yehovah; was re-written as "Adonai" or, LORD by the Jews, out of fear of pronouncing the Name of "I AM." There is a verse in Amos which I believe foretells that the Jews at one point, would forbid to say the LORD's name. Amos 6:10 "...for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD." Since then, most translations do the same.
  • Brianna
    Vs. 4 Seems almost like a contradiction with this translation. I have to agree with Nkosilathi's thought. Was capital LORD originally written or was the Divine Name "YAHWEH" OR "JEHOVAH" written?
  • Charley
    A strong rebuke to the person
    Who said there is no holy
    Spirit please read 1st John 5-7
    There are three that bare record in
    Heaven the father, the word,and
    The holly spirit these three are one
    The father jehovah god
    The word is Jesus Christ
    The holy spiritual
    Wake up to the godhead
    Which means the trinity
  • John 10 30 Jesus said I and my Father are one.
  • Eric
    Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me for they are thine. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
  • Elizabeth Bhatoy
    You are absolutely correct the person who put that there is only one God and Jesus is his son (you backed this up with scripture). The person who wrote "God the Father, God the son and God the holy spirit" did not back this up from scripture, that is because its not in the bible , it is church teaching. It doesn't say "God the son" but son of God or son of man.
  • DONAL FLOYD for verse 2
    HOW I BELIVE DEUT 4:2 REV 22-18:21 THERE IS TO MUCH RELIGION GOING ON SOME ONE HAS TO BE WRONG.I HOPE MY RELIGON IS THE RIGHT ONE. ASSEMBLIE OF GOD.
  • Derrick
    the book of deuteronomy,4 teaches us that all things are possible when you follow God 's commandments and that God reigns in the heavens and the earth 4:39
  • Norma Powell
    We are to be reminded that God is still speaking to us Today through the Power of His Holy Spirit let us consider what is the graven image in our lives now note verse 16-19 lets remember although Jesus died to rescue us from the penalty of sin and is seated at the right hand of God as our petitioner we must remember we must put His commands first and thank Him for the the access of restoration by the Blood of Jesus Christ
  • Anne
    God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is one God Three in one Lord of heaven and earth.
  • Grant for verse 39
    How do you explain three gods in one when you read Moses simple statement at the end of Deuteronomy 4:39? Does the prophet Isaiah agree with Moses at Isa 44:8? Both authors agree that Jesus is not God and affirm that there is no one else! The term "three gods in one " is not a bible teaching. After reading about his father, even Jesus knew there was no one else.
  • Jackson mackenzi for verse 7
    This is very powerful to note that God is so close to us than to any other apeople on the universe. Thats to say God cares so much of us, he loves us so much hence the promise that he will never leave us nor forsake us
  • Steven
    To me DeuTeronomy is a book for the Israelites were supposed to have wisdom and knowledge on and to live by before and after moses died. It is also a warning to the Israelites.
  • Terry for verse 23
    Moses knew the mind of the people how they were easy to forget the goodness of the Lord.He warns them not to forget how God has blessed them.
  • Edward for verse 24
    It is scary and also a warning. This is a prophecy for modern Israelite nations to heed. If we turn from the God of Israel in the latter days after God has bestowed upon us all the blessings that are totally undiserved, we will reap the rewards from that turning away, from the very God and only God that gives us life and breath. The Lord God will drive us unto our enemies, right back into "Eygpt ", national slavery ! Just as it happened before as shown in scripture, written down and given to us for an example too heed.
