This Bible study covers the continuation of Moses’ sermon, where he points out unmerited examples of the God’s mercy such as restoring the tables; continuing the priesthood; separating the tribe of Levi; and regarding his intercession for them. He also takes occasion, from all these things to exhort them to obedience. Blessings and cursings are promised for obedience or disobedience. Moses also instructs them in observance of certain duties which the God had appointed to be regarded in Canaan; such as the throwing down all the idolatrous monuments the people should find in the land; appointing a certain spot to be peculiarly dedicated to the service of the LORD; cautiously abstaining from the use of blood in their sacrifices; and eating them, holy things in the precise place which the LORD had commanded; together with observing due attention to the person of the Levite; and being so exceedingly tenacious of their attachment to the GOD of their Fathers, as not even to enquire after the mode of worship which the idolaters of Canaan followed.
