Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 28:29-33

_ _ thou shalt grope at noonday — a general description of the painful uncertainty in which they would live. During the Middle Ages the Jews were driven from society into hiding-places which they were afraid to leave, not knowing from what quarter they might be assailed and their children dragged into captivity, from which no friend could rescue, and no money ransom them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 28:15-44.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 28:29

Grope at noon day — In the most clear and evident matters thou shalt grossly mistake. Thy ways — Thy counsels and enterprizes shall be frustrated and turn to thy destruction.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Deuteronomy 28:29

And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the (n) blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save [thee].

(n) In things most evident and clear you will lack discretion and judgment.
