Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 27:2

_ _ it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan — “Day” is often put for “time”; and it was not till some days after the passage that the following instructions were acted upon.

_ _ thou shalt set thee up great stones, and plaister them with plaister — These stones were to be taken in their natural state, unhewn, and unpolished — the occasion on which they were used not admitting of long or elaborate preparation; and they were to be daubed over with paint or whitewash, to render them more conspicuous. Stones and even rocks are seen in Egypt and the peninsula of Sinai, containing inscriptions made three thousand years ago, in paint or plaister. By some similar method those stones may have been inscribed, and it is most probable that Moses learned the art from the Egyptians.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 27:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 27:2

On that day — About that time, for it was not done 'till some days after their passing over.

Joshua 4:5-24 And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take ye up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel: ... That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it [is] mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever.

Deuteronomy 27:3 And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee.

Houbigant and others are of opinion that the original words, wesadta othom beseed, should be rendered "thou shalt cement them with cement," because this was intended to be a durable monument. Some suppose that the writing was to be in relievo, and that the spaces were to be filled up by the mortar or cement; as is frequently the case with eastern inscriptions.
