Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 27:3

_ _ thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law — It might be, as some think, the Decalogue; but a greater probability is that it was “the blessings and curses,” which comprised in fact an epitome of the law (Joshua 8:34).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 27:1-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 27:3

This law — The law properly so called, that is, the sum and substance of the precepts or laws of Moses, especially such as were moral, particularly the decalogue. Write it, that thou mayest go in — As the condition of thy entering into the land. For since Canaan is given only by promise, it must be held by obedience.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Deuteronomy 27:3

(b) 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.

(b) God would have his law set up in the borders of the land of Canaan, that all that looked on it might know that the land was dedicated to his service.
