Deuteronomy Chapter 8 Discussion

  • Cassundra Renee' Sims on Deuteronomy 8
    Keep GOD's commandments; he will not have you to lack in anything that HE has design for you to have; his word never comes back void. Trust him with all your heart for he loves to take care of HIS children.....We're not perfect, but we can make sure we don't take his grace and mercy for granted....Amen

    The very station in life that your friend finds demeaning is rather a great honor and a gift from God.

    From the beginning, man was created to work for God ( Genesis 2:15). The woman was then specially created as the help most suitable to accomplish that purpose ( Genesis 2:20-25).

    The Lord's value system is quite opposite what the world judges worthwhile. If your friend knows the forgiveness and redemption gained by Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross and his resurrection from the dead, then she has an eternal purpose and reward in the perfect will of God. ( 1 Corinthians 15:58, 1 Peter 3)

    Being an excellent mother carries a far greater weight of glory and influence than any of the vain achievements or self promotion touted in this world's marketplace. ( Proverbs 31:10-31)

    The Bible has many accounts of women who by faith achieved great things for the Lord, including:

    Sara: Hebrews 11:11-12

    Rebekah: Genesis 24-27

    Leah and Rachel: Genesis 29-

    Shiphrah and Puah: Exodus 1:15-21

    Moses' mother and sister Miriam: Exodus 2

    Rahab: Joshua 2, Joshua 6

    Deborah: Judges 4

    Jael: Judges 4

    Naomi and Ruth: Ruth 1-4

    Hannah: 1 Samuel 1-2

    Esther: Esther 1-10

    Elisabeth: Luke 1

    Mary: Matthew 1-

    Martha and Mary: Luke 10, John 11

    The faithful women at the crucifixion of Jesus after the disciples fled: Matthew 27:55-56

    Mary Magdalene: Mark 16, John 20 - (The very first person to meet the risen Lord Jesus Christ),

    along with many other notable followers in the early church.

    Hi Chris ,ive always thought that people burned bodies rather than have wild animals dismember and eat them ,if there is some where like a secure cave etc near by obviously you would use that ,i think it helps to remember the times and places and limited resources people had ,i would rather my loved ones body was burned that eaten by lions ! Once the fire was out and the soft parts consumed the bones could be buried latter in a safe place ,just my thoughts ,a bit morbid ! Sorry.
  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 8
    Hello James. As far as I know, the Bible is silent on this topic, probably because it was not a practice of God's people, rather more in line to what the heathen would do. The references that come up are found in the Old Testament: 1 Samuel 31:11-13; Amos 2:1; Leviticus 20:14. However, Israel generally resorted to burial in a tomb, cave or ground: Genesis 23:19; 2 Chronicles 16:14; Matthew 27:57-60.

    So, the Church is not given a specific direction on this, as ultimately, the body returns to dust "from whence it came" ( Ecclesiastes 12:7). It then becomes the decision by the family of the departed to have a burial or a cremation, depending on preference, costs, or availability. My choice would always be for a burial, in line with what was practised by Israel.
  • James Futch on Deuteronomy 8
    What does the Bible say about cremation?
  • Farmgirl on Deuteronomy 8
    how do I show a friend of mine that women are not just slaves to working and having children. She believes women are worthless.

    ACLJ website needs our signatures. Now

    They've ve warned you that the radical Left has been trying to weaponize COVID-19 to push their extreme agenda. And churches have been their first target.

    The Bible commands us to praise & worship: "Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!" - Psalm 100:2

    The radical Left has literally used the pandemic to forbid you from following this Scripture. It's the most draconian abuse of power in a pandemic. And it's blatantly unconstitutional.

    In fact, the Supreme Court recently issued several MAJOR rulings for churches, and we've filed a critical brief at the Supreme Court to stop the SHUTDOWN of churches for good.

    JUST HOURS AGO, a state legislature passed a bill we helped draft to ensure that churches are essential and CANNOT BE SHUT DOWN. Earlier this week we served discovery; and TODAY, we are planning to make a critical legal filing in federal court in our MASSIVE lawsuit against the church singing ban.

    But as we go head-to-head against a powerful state government (California/Pelosi). and its inexhaustible resources, we need Your signature on the petitions.


    Isaiah 5:20

    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    I think that question is easier to answer when it concerns all women of the Bible

    To Google: Women in the King James Bible

    It makes for good reading
  • Stephanie on Deuteronomy 8
    Good afternoon,

    I was looking for all the women and their life journey in the bible. Would you have their names and where in the bible to look?

    Deuteronomy 9:5 the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

    are "Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob" those fathers or fathers, and Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?
  • Richard in Christ on Deuteronomy 8
    62.10 But the Lord of Spirits will then so press them that they will hasten to go out from before Him, and their faces will be filled with shame, and the darkness will grow deeper on their faces.

    62.11 And the Angels of Punishment will take them so that they may repay them for the wrong that they did to His children and to His chosen ones.

    62.12 And they will become a spectacle to the righteous and to His chosen ones; they will rejoice over them, for the anger of the Lord of Spirits will rest upon them, and the sword of the Lord of Spirits will be drunk with them.

    62.13 And the righteous and the chosen will be saved on that Day and they will never see the faces of the sinners and the lawless from then on.

    62.14 And the Lord of Spirits will remain over them and with that Son of Man they will dwell, and eat, and lie down, and rise up, forever and ever.

    62.15 And the righteous and chosen will have risen from the earth, and will have ceased to cast down their faces, and will have put on the Garment of Life.

    62.16 And this will be a Garment of Life from the Lord of Spirits; and your garments will not wear out, and your glory will not fail, in front of the Lord of Spirits. Amen.
  • Richard in Christ on Deuteronomy 8
    62.1 And thus the Lord commanded the kings, and the mighty and the exalted, and those who dwell upon the earth, and said: "Open your eyes and raise your horns if you are able to acknowledge the Chosen One."

    62.2 And the Lord of Spirits sat on His Throne of Glory, and the spirit of righteousness was poured out on Him, and the word of his mouth kills all the sinners and all the lawless, and they are destroyed in front of Him.

    62.3 And on that Day, all the kings and the mighty and the exalted, and those who possess the earth, will stand up and they will see and recognize how He sits on the Throne of His Glory. And the righteous are judged in righteousness, in front of Him, and no idle word is spoken in front of Him.

    62.4 And pain will come upon them as upon a woman in labour, for whom giving birth is difficult when her child enters the mouth of the womb, and she has difficulty giving birth.

    62.5 And one half of them will look at the other, and they will be terrified, and will cast down their faces, and pain will take hold of them when they see that son of a woman sitting on the throne of His Glory.

    62.6 And the mighty kings, and all those who possess the earth, will praise and bless and exalt Him who rules everything that is hidden.

    62.7 For from the beginning that Son of Man was hidden, and the Most High kept him in the presence of His power, and revealed Him only to the chosen.

    62.8 And the community of the Holy and the chosen will be sown and all the chosen will stand before Him on that day.

    62.9 And all the mighty kings, and the exalted, and those who rule the dry ground, will fall down before him, on their faces, and worship; and they will set their hopes on that Son of Man, and will entreat him, and will petition for mercy from him.

    Genesis 15:15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace;

    Genesis 47:9 ...have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.

    Genesis 48:21 unto the land of your fathers

    Numbers 20:15 How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers:


    Who are these Fathers? any special meaning?
  • Howard Coston on Deuteronomy 8
    Jehovah superior wisdom shows us that his foresight of his provision for his people, were created and made for his people , who were not ready for them , until he prepare them first, internally, mentally, neither is his people ready for heaven, Heaven is a prepared destination, for a prepared people, and the people must be prepared by the Predestinator who knows what's inside of the people that is prodical, prodical means , not ready internally, So by his wisdom, Jehovah knows what is best for his people, when his people do not know, Jehovah foreknowledge, is awesome and amazing to behold.

  • Ritu Parveen Sharma on Deuteronomy 8
    Yahweh first reminds the Israelites about His wonders and provisions in the wilderness. Then He unfolds the manifold blessings of the promised land. Finally, He warns them not to forget their Heavenly Father once they start enjoying a peaceful and abundant life.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Deuteronomy 8
    No but I guess you are going to tell me. You can do lots of tricks with numbers. pick a number between 1 and 9. Multiply that number by 9 then multiply that number by 12345679. leave the 8 out.

  • Verse 1~Keeping God's commandments means the difference between life and death just as it did for the Israelites.
  • A disciple on Deuteronomy 8
    Bruce Wayne; First WARNING! (and maybe you've heard this before) numerology and mysticism, human methodologies from a misguided view, that the Holy Scriptures is some kind of curious art of man's device, or that it was cryptically written and may then be "unlocked" by unregenerate darkened minds of men; is satanic error and utterly false. The Scriptures of Truth are revealed to the obedient heart!
  • Bruce Wayne on Deuteronomy 8
    Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4, Luke 4:4 " doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live."

    = 16:11

    Do you know the significance of the year 1611, and the Word of God?
  • Narrima on Deuteronomy 8
    God is so wonderful! It is He, who gives and takes away. His correction is for our own benefit. First to prove us, then to bless us. The word power here means strength. Because of Him, we walk, run, work etc. Our very existence is because of Him.
  • Verse 18: While ultimately it is through God's provision that Christians have material things, God has granted his people 'power' (abilities, knowledge, skills, gifts) to earn a living and provide for our families. God as equipped us with the capacity to do great things for His glory; we just have to exercise our gifts and abilities and let Him do the rest!
  • Nancy on Deuteronomy 8
    I'm wanting to know what is the power he has given us to get wealth. What does the word power here mean. Thank you
  • Verse 2: The Israelites were encouraged to remember Jehovah God and his dealings with them in the wilderness. God humbled them by putting them to the test. He allowed them the opportunity of listening to him and then doing what he said. He could have instantly judged them but he gave them a chance to individually show that they loved him and wanted to obey him.
  • April on Deuteronomy 8
    We should Thank GOD EVERY DAY for what we have,so many have nothing and still find a way to accept it and be happy,this I think means the pressure of fitting in as well,the clothes we wear,cars,jewelry ect and our gluttony to WANT more,due to our selfish desires to fit in,we have so much to be thankful for,we are nothing without GOD and we need to constantly HUMBLE ourselves,no matter our agesAMEN
  • Peter A. Okebukola on Deuteronomy 8
