Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 31:16-22.


Deuteronomy 31:19

_ _ Now therefore write ye this song — National songs take deep hold of the memories and have a powerful influence in stirring the deepest feelings of a people. In accordance with this principle in human nature, a song was ordered to be composed by Moses, doubtless under divine inspiration, which was to be learnt by the Israelites themselves and to be taught to their children in every age, embodying the substance of the preceding addresses, and of a strain well suited to inspire the popular mind with a strong sense of God’s favor to their nation.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 31:14-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 31:19

Write this song — Which is contained Deu. 32:1-43, and is put into a song that it may be better learned, and more fixed in their minds and memories. Put it in their mouths — Cause them to learn it, and sing it one to another, to oblige them to more circumspection. A witness — Of my kindness in giving them so many blessings, of my patience in bearing so long with them, of my clemency in giving them such fair and plain warnings, and my justice in punishing such an incorrigible people.
