    Definitions for Deuteronomy 10:12

    Doth - To do; to produce; make.

    Clarke's Commentary on Deuteronomy 10:12

    Now, Israel, what doth the Lord - require of thee - An answer is immediately given. God requires,

    1. That ye fear him as Jehovah your God; him who made, preserves, and governs you.

    2. That ye walk in all his ways - that, having received his precepts, all of which are good and excellent, ye obey the whole; walking in God's ways, not your own, nor in the ways of the people of the land.

    3. That ye love him - have confidence in him as your father and friend, have recourse to him in all your necessities, and love him in return for his love.

    4. That you serve him - give him that worship which he requires, performing it with all your heart - the whole of your affections, and with all your soul - your will, understanding, and judgment. In a word, putting forth your whole strength and energy of body and soul in the sacred work.

    Barnes' Notes on Deuteronomy 10:12

    After these emphatic warnings against self-righteousness the principal topic is resumed from Deuteronomy 6, and this division of the discourse is drawn to a conclusion in the next two chapters by a series of direct and positive exhortations to a careful fulfillment of the duties prescribed in the first two of the Ten "Words."

    Deuteronomy 10:12

    What doth the Lord thy God require ... - A noteworthy demand. God has in the Mosaic law positively commanded many things. However, these relate to external observances, which if need be can be enforced. But love and veneration cannot be enforced, even by God himself. They must be spontaneous. Hence, even under the law of ordinances where so much was peremptorily laid down, and omnipotence was ready to compel obedience, those sentiments, which are the spirit and life of the whole, have to be, as they here are, invited and solicited.

    Wesley's Notes on Deuteronomy 10:12

    10:12 What doth he require - By way of duty and gratitude for such amazing mercies.
