Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 32:6

_ _ is not he thy father that hath bought thee — or emancipated thee from Egyptian bondage.

_ _ and made thee — advanced the nation to unprecedented and peculiar privileges.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 32:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 32:6

O foolish people and unwise! — Fools and double fools! Fools indeed, to disoblige one, on whom you so entirely depend! Who hath bewitched you! To forsake your own mercies for lying vanities! Bought thee — That hath redeemed thee from Egyptian bondage. Made thee — Not only in a general by creation, but in a peculiar manner by making thee his peculiar people. Established — That is, renewed and confirmed his favour to thee, and not taken it away, which thou hast often provoked him to do.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Deuteronomy 32:6
