James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 1:1-46

REVIEW OF ISRAEL ’S HISTORY A book written by Canon Bernard entitled The Progress of Doctrine in the New Testament, shows not only that the contents of its books are inspired, but their arrangement and order as well. The same might be said of the Old Testament, especially of the Pentateuch. To illustrate, the purpose of the Bible is to give the history of redemption through a special seed. In Genesis we have the election of that seed (Abraham), in Exodus their redemption, in Leviticus their... read more

Joseph Parker

The People's Bible by Joseph Parker - Deuteronomy 1:1-46

Remarkable Things Deu 1:6 This is the first remarkable thing in the opening chapter of the fifth book of Moses. God knows, then, how long we have been here or there. Our downsitting and our uprising, our going out and our coming in, are of consequence to him who made us. He keeps the time: he knows when we have been "long enough" in one place. He does not always consult us, saying, in terms of affectionate inquiry, Would you desire to tarry longer here? would it suit you to remain another... read more

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Deuteronomy 1:19-46

I did not think it needful to stop the Reader with any observations which arise out of these verses, having already dwelt upon the subject in the Commentary on the 13th and 14th Chapters of the Book of Numbers. If the Reader will consult what is there said, he will find that what suits the one is equally applicable to the other. And he will discover, moreover, that this part of Moses' sermon is a beautiful duplicate of that history. But while I refer the Reader to what hath been already brought... read more

Matthew Henry

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible - Deuteronomy 1:19-46

19-46 Moses reminds the Israelites of their march from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea, through that great and terrible wilderness. He shows how near they were to a happy settlement in Canaan. It will aggravate the eternal ruin of hypocrites, that they were not far from the kingdom of God. As if it were not enough that they were sure of their God before them, they would send men before them. Never any looked into the Holy Land, but they must own it to be a good land. And was there any cause to distrust... read more

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - Deuteronomy 1:19-46

Kadesh-Barnea and the Spies. v. 19. And when we departed from Horeb, Numbers 10:11, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, during their journey to reach that country, as the Lord, our God, commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea, which may be considered as being located in the extreme southern boundary of the Amorite country. v. 20. And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, the range which... read more

(Deuteronomy 1:6-8).6The Lord our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: 7Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all [his neighbors—see marg.] the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea-side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto... read more

Frederick Brotherton Meyer

F.B. Meyer's 'Through the Bible' Commentary - Deuteronomy 1:19-40

the Penalty of Unbelief Deuteronomy 1:19-40 There is little to distinguish Kadesh-barnea among the sand-dunes of the desert. It was situated on the frontier, where Canaan fades into the southern desert. But it is a notable place in the spiritual chart, and few are they that have not passed through some notable experience there. It was there that Israel thought more of their enemies and difficulties than of the right hand of the Most High. When we look at circumstances apart from God; when we... read more

G. Campbell Morgan

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - Deuteronomy 1:1-46

The Book of Deuteronomy is didactic rather than historic. It consists of a collection of the final utterances of Moses and is a Book of review. It commences with a discourse in which Moses reviewed the forty years. This occupies chapters 1 Timothy 4:0, verse 43. The whole journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea should have occupied eleven days (verse Deu 1:2 ). The distance was not more than 125 miles. Because of unbelief they had spent forty years in the wilderness. We have in this chapter a... read more

Robert Neighbour

Wells of Living Water Commentary - Deuteronomy 1:1-43

Kadesh-Barnea Deuteronomy 1:1-43 INTRODUCTORY WORDS There are three things which need to be brought out in a definite way. 1. The suggestion of the verbal inspiration of the Bible. The chapter opens with this tremendous statement: "These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel." That Moses spake under the inspiration of God, we know. The Lord Jesus in referring to the Books of the Pentateuch said, concerning the words of Moses, "Have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God?"... read more
