Deuteronomy 28-29

  • 28: 1-19 – Moses clearly explains to the Israelites what is required of them and what the outcomes of both decisions will be. They can choose obedience and blessings or disobedience and curses. Remember this when we read later books in which God curses them for disobedience- they knew what the consequences of disobedience would be.
  • 28: 20-68 – All of these verses describe the breadth of curses the Israelites will receive if they choose not to follow the Lord’s commands. Every aspect of their lives will be slowly destroyed.
  • 29: 4 – The Israelites could not yet fully understand the great provision God had offered them.
  • 29:10-15 – Though God had already established this covenant of making the Israelites his people, through Moses, Moses is now explaining it to the Israelites.
  • 29:19 – This reliance on heritage and being a part of the covenant, but purposely continuing in sin was also something John the Baptist and Jesus warned against.
