    Barnes' Notes on Deuteronomy 6:10

    The Israelites were at the point of quitting a normal, life for a fixed and settled abode in the midst of other nations; they were exchanging a condition of comparative poverty for great and goodly cities, houses and vineyards. There was therefore before them a double danger;

    (1) a God-forgetting worldliness, and

    (2) a false tolerance of the idolatries practiced by those about to become their neighbors.

    The former error Moses strives to guard against in the verses before us; the latter in Deuteronomy 7:1-11.
