Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 4:5-6

_ _ this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes — Moses predicted that the faithful observance of the laws given them would raise their national character for intelligence and wisdom. In point of fact it did do so; for although the heathen world generally ridiculed the Hebrews for what they considered a foolish and absurd exclusiveness, some of the most eminent philosophers expressed the highest admiration of the fundamental principle in the Jewish religion — the unity of God; and their legislators borrowed some laws from the constitution of the Hebrews.
