Daily Word of God - Deuteronomy 33:1-5

Deuteronomy 33:1-5 New Living Translation (NLT)

Moses Blesses the People
33 This is the blessing that Moses, the man of God, gave to the people of Israel before his death:

2 “The Lord came from Mount Sinai
    and dawned upon us[a] from Mount Seir;
he shone forth from Mount Paran
    and came from Meribah-kadesh
    with flaming fire at his right hand.[b]
3 Indeed, he loves his people;[c]
    all his holy ones are in his hands.
They follow in his steps
    and accept his teaching.
4 Moses gave us the Lord’s instruction,
    the special possession of the people of Israel.[d]
5 The Lord became king in Israel[e]—
    when the leaders of the people assembled,
    when the tribes of Israel gathered as one.”

33:2a As in Greek and Syriac versions; Hebrew reads upon them.
33:2b Or came from myriads of holy ones, from the south, from his mountain slopes. The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain.
33:3 As in Greek version; Hebrew reads Indeed, lover of the peoples.
33:4 Hebrew of Jacob. The names “Jacob” and “Israel” are often interchanged throughout the Old Testament, referring sometimes to the individual patriarch and sometimes to the nation.
33:5 Hebrew in Jeshurun, a term of endearment for Israel.
