John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 9:5

Not for thy righteousness — Neither for thy upright heart, nor holy life, which are the two things which God above all things regards. And consequently he excludes all merit. And surely they who did not deserve this earthly Canaan, could not merit the kingdom of glory. To perform the word — To shew my faithfulness in accomplishing that promise which I graciously made and confirmed with my oath.
