Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 11:2-9

_ _ I speak not with your children which have not known ... But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the Lord which he did — Moses is here giving a brief summary of the marvels and miracles of awful judgment which God had wrought in effecting their release from the tyranny of Pharaoh, as well as those which had taken place in the wilderness. He knew that he might dwell upon these, for he was addressing many who had been witnesses of those appalling incidents. For it will be remembered that the divine threatening that they should die in the wilderness, and its execution, extended only to males from twenty years and upward, who were able to go forth to war. No males under twenty years of age, no females, and none of the tribe of Levi, were objects of the denunciation (see Numbers 14:28-30; Numbers 16:49). There might, therefore, have been many thousands of the Israelites at that time of whom Moses could say, “Your eyes have seen all the great acts which He did”; and with regard to those the historic review of Moses was well calculated to stir up their minds to the duty and advantages of obedience.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
