Deuteronomy 11:8 New English Translation (NET Bible)

The Abundance of the Land of Promise

Now pay attention to all the commandments[a] I am giving[b] you today, so that you may be strong enough to enter and possess the land where you are headed,[c]


  1. Deuteronomy 11:8 tn Heb “the commandment.” The singular מִצְוָה (mitsvah, “commandment”) speaks here as elsewhere of the whole corpus of covenant stipulations in Deuteronomy (cf. 6:1, 25; 7:11; 8:1).
  2. Deuteronomy 11:8 tn Heb “commanding” (so NASB, NRSV). For stylistic reasons, to avoid redundancy, “giving” has been used in the translation (likewise in vv. 13, 27).
  3. Deuteronomy 11:8 tn Heb “which you are crossing over there to possess it.”
