Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 4:28

_ _ there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands — The compulsory measures of their tyrannical conquerors would force them into idolatry, so that their choice would become their punishment.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 4:1-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 4:28

Ye shall serve Gods — You shall be compelled by men, and given up by me to idolatry. So that very thing which was your choice, shall be your punishment: it being just and usual for God to punish one sin by giving men up to another.
