Main Point: As mediator, Moses summons Israel in order to exhort them to keep the statutes that God gave them at Horeb, when he spoke from the midst of the fire, the cloud and thick darkness, which they were too afraid to approach themselves and from which God gave Moses the two tablets on which these things were written. Outline 1. Summons to hear YHWH’s words in order to learn and obey them (5:1) 2. Basis for Obedience: Covenant Relationship (5:2-5) A. YHWH cut an enduring covenant with Israel – not just that generation (5:2-3) B. YHWH spoke to Israel face-to-face (5:4) C. YHWH spoke through Moses, his intermediary (5:5) 3. The Statutes and Rules of the Covenant (5:6-10ff) A. Basis for Israel’s obedience: YHWH delivered them from slavery in Egypt (5:6) B. The Statutes and Rules i. Regarding worship of YHWH alone (5:7) ii. Regarding idolatry (5:9) - Basis for exclusivity: YHWH’s righteous jealousy (5:10) iii. Regarding the Name (5:11) iv. Regarding the Sabbath (5:12-15) You shall not work (5:13-14) You shall remember that you were freed from slavery (5:15) v. Regarding parents (5:16) vi. Regarding murder (5:17) vii. Regarding adultery (5:18) viii. Regarding theft (5:19) ix. Regarding lying (5:20) x. Regarding covetousness (5:21) 4. Summary: YHWH gave these words to Moses at Horeb. Exegetical Questions: 1. Are we supposed to keep the Sabbath, even though we are not ethnic Jews? The decalogue is not primarily about doing, but about relationship. It is first about man's relationship to God and then about man's relationshipto his neighbor. Daniel Block argues that if one is bound to keep part of the Decalogue, they are bound to keep all of it. He gives several reasons that the Sabbath regulation did not end with Christ: It is embedded in the D. as a fundamental principle of covenant relaitonship, along with prohibition of any other gods, images, mruder, etc..., so it may not be treated differently from the rest. The 6+1 weekly rhythm is fundamental ot hte cosmic order. The Sabbath is completely separated from Israel's ceremonial laws - they were celebrating it before Sinai. It is not primarily a cultic ordinance; it was both humanitarian and theological Nowhere does the NT annul the Sabbath - when Paul minimizes them, he speaks of the annual or monthly festivals actually associated with the Israelite ceremonial calendar (pg. 203-205). 2. Why does Moses change the ground for keeping the Sabbath from Exodus, where it is based on God's having rested, to Deuteronomy, where it is based on remembering God's redemptive work. Some general observations: The two are not mutually exclusive. In fact, they both call on the person to remember God's work in redemptive history. McConnell : "The basis of the deuteronomic command in the exodus ('slave in Egypt' recalling v. 6) does not negate or invalidate the basis of the command in creation in the book of Exodus (20:11); rather, Deuteronomy twice expressly recalls theat the command is already known, presumably from that book. Its new interpretation represents an extension of the potential significance of the law." (pg. 128) What is the "extension of the potential significance of the law"? Though McConnell doesn't say what he means by this, it could be that in Exodus the people are called on to remember God as their creator . Here in Deuteronomy, they are being called on to remember God as their redeemer . That seems to be the extended significance. They are not mutually exclusive. 3. What does it mean that children will "live long" if they honor their parents? General Observations. In Ephesians 4, Paul quotes this and says that it is the first commandment with a promise. But could the second command be taken as a promise? That the Lord would show "steadfast love to those who love me, who keep my commandment"? If so, then perhaps Paul means that this is the first promise in importance, not in order. We know from experience that many children who honor their parents do not live long, and many children who don't honor their parents do live long. Block and McConville do not address this question. My Conclusion: It was given to Israel as they entered the land and the promise was given to the nation, not individuals. If they honor their parents (not limited to biological parents), they would live long in Canaan.
