     commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the
     land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them
     in {b} Horeb.

     (a) That is, the articles, or conditions.
     (b) At the first giving of the law, which was forty years

De 29:3
29:3 The {c} great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the
     signs, and those great miracles:

     (c) The proofs of my power.

De 29:4
29:4 Yet the LORD hath not {d} given you an heart to perceive,
     and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.

     (d) He shows that it is not in man's power to understand
         the mysteries of God if it is not given to him from

De 29:6
29:6 Ye have not eaten {e} bread, neither have ye drunk wine or
     strong drink: that ye might know that I [am] the LORD your

     (e) Made by man's art, but manna, which is called the bread
         of angels.

De 29:10
29:10 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your {f} God;
      your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your
      officers, [with] all the men of Israel,

      (f) Who knows your hearts, and therefore you may not think
          to conceal from him.

De 29:12
29:12 That thou shouldest {g} enter into covenant with the LORD
      thy God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh
      with thee this day:

      (g) Alluding to them, that when they made a sure covenant,
          divided a beast in two, and past between the parts
          divided, @Ge 15:10.

De 29:15
29:15 But with [him] that standeth here with us this day before
      the LORD our God, and also with [him] {h} that [is] not
      here with us this day:

      (h) Meaning, their posterity.

De 29:18
29:18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family,
      or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD
      our God, to go [and] serve the gods of these nations; lest
      there should be among you {i} a root that beareth gall and

      (i) Such sin, as the bitter fruit of it might choke and
          destroy you.

De 29:19
29:19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this
      curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall
      have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine
      heart, to add {k} drunkenness to thirst:

      (k) For as he that is thirsty desires to drink much so he
          that follows his appetites seeks by all means and yet
          cannot be satisfied.

De 29:22
29:22 So that the {l} generation to come of your children that
      shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come
      from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of
      that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid
      upon it;

      (l) God's plagues on those who rebel against him will be
          so strong, that all ages will be astonished.

De 29:29
29:29 The {m} secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but
      those [things which are] revealed [belong] unto us and to
      our children for ever, that [we] may do all the words of
      this law.

      (m) Moses by this proves their curiosity, who seek those
          things that are only known to God: and their
          negligence who do not regard that which God has
          revealed to them, as the law.
