Reading along with us in Deuteronomy? Here’s today’s reading:

Deuteronomy 32 (ESV)

“Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak,
    and let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
May my teaching drop as the rain,
    my speech distill as the dew,
like gentle rain upon the tender grass,
    and like showers upon the herb.
For I will proclaim the name of the Lord;
    ascribe greatness to our God!

“The Rock, his work is perfect,
    for all his ways are justice.
A God of faithfulness and without iniquity,
    just and upright is he.
They have dealt corruptly with him;
    they are no longer his children because they are blemished;
    they are a crooked and twisted generation.
Do you thus repay the Lord,
    you foolish and senseless people?
Is not he your father, who created you,
    who made you and established you?
Remember the days of old;
    consider the years of many generations;
ask your father, and he will show you,
    your elders, and they will tell you.
When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance,
    when he divided mankind,
he fixed the borders of the peoples
    according to the number of the sons of God.
But the Lord‘s portion is his people,
    Jacob his allotted heritageContinue Reading

  1. 39 “‘See now that I, even I, am he,
    and there is no god beside me;
    I kill and I make alive;
    I wound and I heal;
    and there is none that can deliver out of my hand.

  2. “Jeshurun” is a poetic name for Israel.

    I’m reading Psalm 63:1-11 this morning, studying the theme of Matthew 5:6 this week. I love how Deuteronomy 32 and Psalms 63 parallel in many ways! So Deut 32:10-12 especially jumps out at me:

    10 “[The LORD] found [Jacob] in a desert land,
    and in the howling waste of the wilderness;
    he encircled him, he cared for him,
    he kept him as the apple of his eye.
    11 Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
    that flutters over its young,
    spreading out its wings, catching them,
    bearing them on its pinions,
    12 the LORD alone guided him,
    no foreign god was with him.”

  3. It is interesting that Deut. 31:19 tells us this song is from God and He wants it to be a testimony to the Israelites, instruction for them. Certainly a reinforcement how important songs of worship are in our walk with God to remind of the things we need to know. And it should be no surprise that God gets historical. Remember all the things I am and all the things I have done. Let them refresh you and make you grow like water falling on new grass. And after this strong affirmation of His care for them in 10-14, God turns to describe the rebellion that will happen that starts with familiarity over the blessings God has given them. It breaks my heart when I see people walk away from God, and so I can only imagine how it breaks His. But God remains faithful and continues to call us back to Him and the love and provision He always stands ready to give, as long as that provision draws us to Him. If it didn’t, then God’s provision would be working against God’ will and purpose of our obedience.
