Comments on Deuteronomy 1-3

Over and over again, as we read how God directed them to take new portions of the Promised Land, God told them through Moses, “See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

In other words, they are told, “God has already won. He has given you the victory. Don’t be afraid, don’t be discouraged.”

Beloved, are you afraid? Are you discouraged? Is there a battle in your life that seems to have you defeated? Something that you cannot get victory over? If you have put your faith in Jesus, then you have everything you need to claim victory. Jesus defeated sin and death because of his death on the cross and resurrection on the third day. If you belong to Jesus, the chains of sin are broken. You are no longer a slave to it. Leave it behind, as the children of Israel left the wilderness behind when they entered the Promised Land. Don’t look back! Look ahead. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He is the fulfillment of the promise of a new life. You have only to claim it. 

“See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

INTRO S12E292 – 0:09
Well, hello there. Good to see you. This is the Lifespring Family Audio Bible coming to you from Riverside, California. Podcasting since 2004, I’m your OG Godcaster, Steve Webb. This is the daily show where we’re reading through the entire Bible in a year. Today’s Monday, which is the day we read from one of the books of the Law. And today we’re going to begin reading the book of Deuteronomy by reading chapters one through three.

And by the way, this is the final book of the Five Books of the Pentateuch or the Law. And in aeronautical terms, we’re beginning our final approach to land this season of the Lifespring Family Audio Bible, today. We’ll be reading Deuteronomy on the remaining eleven Mondays of the season, including today. I’ll give you an introduction to the book of Deuteronomy before we begin reading it. Then we’ll read the chapters and afterwards, I’ll have some comments for you. After that, I’ll have an On This Date in Church History for you. I’ve got a prayer request and a praise. And I’m calling the episode today, “Moses on the Threshold”.

The show notes page for today’s episode is at lifespringmedia.com/s12e292, if you’d like to leave a comment. And my email address in case you’d like to write to me is steve@lifespringmedia.com. Let’s get going.

INTRO TO DEUTERONOMY 1 – 1:23
Well, here in the beginning of Deuteronomy, the children of Israel are on the threshold of entering into the Promised Land. God has led them in the wilderness for 40 years, not because it took that long to walk from Egypt to this place, but because of their rebellion. Near the beginning of their journey, they turned from God to worship a golden calf and because of that, God told them that that generation would never enter the Promised Land.

But now there’s a new generation. All of the old generation was dead, and God was about to fulfill his promise to give this land to this generation. But because of Moses disobedience at Meribah, God told him that he would not enter the Promised Land either. So knowing that he would not be going with them, Moses spoke to all of Israel when they were about to cross over into Canaan, the Promised Land.

Now, the word “Deuteronomy” means “second law”, and this book is a sermon or a series of messages from God through Moses to Israel. We need to remember that none of this generation was old enough to remember when God gave the tablets of the law to Moses on Mount Sinai. So Deuteronomy is a second giving of the law, because God wanted this new generation to follow his commands. He didn’t want them to fail as their parents had. And God knew that Moses would not be there to lead them. So he directed Moses to remind them of how God had delivered them from their captivity in Egypt, and what happened in the 40 years since that miraculous event, and he wanted to remind them or perhaps, for some of them, to teach them for the first time of God’s laws.

You know, we humans have short memories, don’t we? We need to be reminded again and again. When we look back at history that fact seems evident. I won’t go into detail here. But what we’re living through right now in 2022 is proof of that. Just about 75 years ago, World War Two was fought and fascism was beat back by the forces of freedom. And now fascism is making a comeback using another name, socialism or democratic socialism, or even woke-ism, et cetera. How could this happen? After World War Two, the cry was “Never Again”. But here we are. This is happening because my generation shamefully neglected to teach or remind the next generation of the lessons learned in World War Two.

Well, God through Moses–back here in Deuteronomy, now–reminded the generation about to enter Canaan about the lessons that were learned. And more than that, Deuteronomy was and is a book for all generations. Jesus quoted Deuteronomy three times when he was tempted by Satan in the wilderness. Commentator J. A. Thompson wrote, quote, “Deuteronomy is one of the greatest books of the Old Testament. Its influence on the domestic and personal religion of all ages, has not been surpassed by any other book in the Bible. It is quoted over 80 times in the New Testament, and thus it belongs to a small group of four Old Testament books, the others being Genesis, Psalms, and Isaiah, to which the early Christians made frequent reference,” unquote. Let’s begin the book of Deuteronomy.

DEUTERONOMY 1 (NLT) – 4:38
Deuteronomy, chapter one. (1) These are the words that Moses spoke to all the people of Israel while they were in the wilderness east of the Jordan River. They were camped in the Jordan Valley near Suph, between Paran on one side and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth, and Di-zahab on the other.

(2) Normally it takes only eleven days to travel from Mount Sinai to Kadesh-barnea, going by way of Mount Seir. (3) But forty years after the Israelites left Egypt, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses addressed the people of Israel, telling them everything the Lord had commanded him to say. (4) This took place after he had defeated King Sihon of the Amorites, who had ruled in Heshbon, and King Og of Bashan who had ruled in Ashtaroth and Edrei.

(5) While the Israelites were in the land of Moab east of the Jordan River, Moses carefully explained the Lord’s instructions as follows.

(6) “When we were at Mount Sinai, the Lord our God said to us, ‘You have stayed at this mountain long enough. (7) It is time to break camp and move on. Go to the hill country of the Amorites and to all the neighboring regions—the Jordan Valley, the hill country, the western foothills, the Negev, and the coastal plain. Go to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, and all the way to the great Euphrates River. (8) Look, I am giving all this land to you! Go in and occupy it, for it is the land the Lord swore to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to all their descendants.’”

(9) Moses continued, “At that time I told you, ‘You are too great a burden for me to carry all by myself. (10) The Lord your God has increased your population, making you as numerous as the stars! (11) And may the Lord, the God of your ancestors, multiply you a thousand times more and bless you as he promised! (12) But you are such a heavy load to carry! How can I deal with all your problems and bickering? (13) Choose some well-respected men from each tribe who are known for their wisdom and understanding, and I will appoint them as your leaders.’

(14) “Then you responded, ‘Your plan is a good one.’ (15) So I took the wise and respected men you had selected from your tribes and appointed them to serve as judges and officials over you. Some were responsible for a thousand people, some for a hundred, some for fifty, and some for ten.

(16) “At that time I instructed the judges, ‘You must hear the cases of your fellow Israelites and the foreigners living among you. Be perfectly fair in your decisions (17) and impartial in your judgments. Hear the cases of those who are poor as well as those who are rich. Don’t be afraid of anyone’s anger, for the decision you make is God’s decision. Bring me any cases that are too difficult for you, and I will handle them.’

(18) “At that time I gave you instructions about everything you were to do.

(19) “Then, just as the Lord our God commanded us, we left Mount Sinai and traveled through the great and terrifying wilderness, as you yourselves remember, and headed toward the hill country of the Amorites. When we arrived at Kadesh-barnea, (20) I said to you, ‘You have now reached the hill country of the Amorites that the Lord our God is giving us. (21) Look! He has placed the land in front of you. Go and occupy it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you. Don’t be afraid! Don’t be discouraged!’

(22) “But you all came to me and said, ‘First, let’s send out scouts to explore the land for us. They will advise us on the best route to take and which towns we should enter.’

(23) “This seemed like a good idea to me, so I chose twelve scouts, one from each of your tribes. (24) They headed for the hill country and came to the valley of Eshcol and explored it. (25) They picked some of its fruit and brought it back to us. And they reported, ‘The land the Lord our God has given us is indeed a good land.’

(26) “But you rebelled against the command of the Lord your God and refused to go in. (27) You complained in your tents and said, ‘The Lord must hate us. That’s why he has brought us here from Egypt—to hand us over to the Amorites to be slaughtered. (28) Where can we go? Our brothers have demoralized us with their report. They tell us, “The people of the land are taller and more powerful than we are, and their towns are large, with walls rising high into the sky! We even saw giants there—the descendants of Anak!”’

(29) “But I said to you, ‘Don’t be shocked or afraid of them! (30) The Lord your God is going ahead of you. He will fight for you, just as you saw him do in Egypt. (31) And you saw how the Lord your God cared for you all along the way as you traveled through the wilderness, just as a father cares for his child. Now he has brought you to this place.’

(32) “But even after all he did, you refused to trust the Lord your God, (33) who goes before you looking for the best places to camp, guiding you with a pillar of fire by night and a pillar of cloud by day.

(34) “When the Lord heard your complaining, he became very angry. So he solemnly swore, (35) ‘Not one of you from this wicked generation will live to see the good land I swore to give your ancestors, (36) except Caleb son of Jephunneh. He will see this land because he has followed the Lord completely. I will give to him and his descendants some of the very land he explored during his scouting mission.’

(37) “And the Lord was also angry with me because of you. He said to me, ‘Moses, not even you will enter the Promised Land! (38) Instead, your assistant, Joshua son of Nun, will lead the people into the land. Encourage him, for he will lead Israel as they take possession of it. (39) I will give the land to your little ones—your innocent children. You were afraid they would be captured, but they will be the ones who occupy it. (40) As for you, turn around now and go on back through the wilderness toward the Red Sea.’

(41) “Then you confessed, ‘We have sinned against the Lord! We will go into the land and fight for it, as the Lord our God has commanded us.’ So your men strapped on their weapons, thinking it would be easy to attack the hill country.

(42) “But the Lord told me to tell you, ‘Do not attack, for I am not with you. If you go ahead on your own, you will be crushed by your enemies.’

(43) “This is what I told you, but you would not listen. Instead, you again rebelled against the Lord’s command and arrogantly went into the hill country to fight. (44) But the Amorites who lived there came out against you like a swarm of bees. They chased and battered you all the way from Seir to Hormah. (45) Then you returned and wept before the Lord, but he refused to listen. (46) So you stayed there at Kadesh for a long time.

DEUTERONOMY 2 (GWT) – 11:20
Deuteronomy, chapter two. (1) We went back into the desert, following the road that goes to the Red Sea as the Lord had told me. For a long time we traveled around the region of Mount Seir.

(2) The Lord said to me, (3) “You’ve traveled around this region long enough. Now go north. (4) Give the people these instructions: ‘You’re going to pass through the territory of your relatives, the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir. They’ll be afraid of you, but be very careful. (5) Don’t start a fight with them, because I’m not giving you any of their land—not even enough to stand on. I’ve given Esau’s descendants the region of Mount Seir as their property. (6) You must pay them in silver for the food you eat and the water you drink.’ ”

(7) The Lord your God has blessed you in everything you have done. He has watched over you as you traveled through this vast desert. For 40 years now the Lord your God has been with you, and you haven’t needed a thing.

(8) So we passed by our relatives, the descendants of Esau, who lived in Seir. We turned off the road that goes through the plains to Elath and Ezion Geber and took the road that goes through the desert of Moab.

(9) The Lord said to me, “Don’t bother the people of Moab or start a war with them. I’m not giving you any of Ar as your property. I have given it to the descendants of Lot.”

(10) The Emites used to live there. These people were as strong, as numerous, and as tall as the people of Anak. (11) They were thought to be Rephaim, like the people of Anak, but the Moabites called them Emites. (12) The Horites used to live in Seir, but the descendants of Esau claimed their land, wiped them out, and took their place, as Israel did in the land that the Lord gave them.

(13) Then the Lord said, “Now cross the Zered River.”

So we crossed the Zered River. (14) Thirty-eight years passed from the time we left Kadesh Barnea until we crossed the Zered River. During that time all our soldiers from that generation died, as the Lord had sworn they would. (15) In fact, it was the Lord himself who got rid of all of them until none were left in the camp.

(16) When the last of these soldiers had died, (17) the Lord said to me, (18) “Today you are going to pass by the border of Moab at Ar. (19) When you come near the Ammonites, don’t bother them or start a fight with them. I’m not giving you any of the land that I have already given to the descendants of Lot as their property.”

(20) This land was thought of as the land of the Rephaim who used to live there, but the Ammonites called them Zamzummim. (21) These people were as strong, as numerous, and as tall as the people of Anak. But the Lord wiped them out before the Ammonites came so that the Ammonites claimed their land and took their place. (22) The Lord did the same thing for the descendants of Esau, who lived in Seir. Before the descendants of Esau came, he wiped out the Horites so that Esau’s descendants claimed their land and took their place. Esau’s descendants are still there today. (23) The same thing happened to the Avvites who lived in villages as far away as Gaza. The Caphtorites, who came from Crete, wiped them out and took their place.

(24) The Lord continued, “Now break camp. Cross the Arnon Valley. I’m going to hand King Sihon of Heshbon, the Amorite, over to you. Fight him, and take possession of his country. (25) Today I will start to make all the people under heaven terrified of you. When they hear about you, they will tremble and shake because of you.”

(26) From the desert of Kedemoth, I sent messengers to King Sihon of Heshbon with the following offer of peace: (27) “If you allow us to travel through your country, we’ll go straight through and won’t ever leave the road. (28) We’ll pay you in silver for the food we eat and the water we drink. Please let us go through, (29) as the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir, and the Moabites, who live in Ar, did for us. We’ll keep going until we cross the Jordan River into the land the Lord our God is giving us.”

(30) But King Sihon of Heshbon wouldn’t allow us to pass through. The Lord your God made him stubborn and overconfident in order to hand him over to you, as he has now done. (31) The Lord said to me, “I have begun to give you Sihon and his country. Go ahead! Take possession of his land.”

(32) Sihon and all his troops came out to meet us in battle at Jahaz. (33) The Lord our God gave Sihon to us, and we defeated him, his sons, and all his troops. (34) At that time we captured all his cities and claimed them for God by destroying men, women, and children. There were no survivors. (35) However, we did loot the cities that we captured, taking the cattle and goods. (36) From Aroer on the edge of the Arnon Valley and the city in that valley as far as Gilead, no city had walls that could keep us out. The Lord our God gave us all of them. (37) But the Lord our God had forbidden you to go anywhere near the land of the Ammonites. So you didn’t enter the land along the bank of the Jabbok River or capture the cities in the mountains.

DEUTERONOMY 3 (NIV) – 16:12
Deuteronomy, chapter three. (1) Next we turned and went up along the road toward Bashan, and Og king of Bashan with his whole army marched out to meet us in battle at Edrei. (2) The Lord said to me, “Do not be afraid of him, for I have delivered him into your hands, along with his whole army and his land. Do to him what you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon.”

(3) So the Lord our God also gave into our hands Og king of Bashan and all his army. We struck them down, leaving no survivors. (4) At that time we took all his cities. There was not one of the sixty cities that we did not take from them—the whole region of Argob, Og’s kingdom in Bashan. (5) All these cities were fortified with high walls and with gates and bars, and there were also a great many unwalled villages. (6) We completely destroyed them, as we had done with Sihon king of Heshbon, destroying every city—men, women and children. (7) But all the livestock and the plunder from their cities we carried off for ourselves.

(8) So at that time we took from these two kings of the Amorites the territory east of the Jordan, from the Arnon Gorge as far as Mount Hermon. (9) (Hermon is called Sirion by the Sidonians; the Amorites call it Senir.) (10) We took all the towns on the plateau, and all Gilead, and all Bashan as far as Salekah and Edrei, towns of Og’s kingdom in Bashan. (11) (Og king of Bashan was the last of the Rephaites. His bed was decorated with iron and was more than nine cubits long and four cubits wide. It is still in Rabbah of the Ammonites.)

(12) Of the land that we took over at that time, I gave the Reubenites and the Gadites the territory north of Aroer by the Arnon Gorge, including half the hill country of Gilead, together with its towns. (13) The rest of Gilead and also all of Bashan, the kingdom of Og, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh. (The whole region of Argob in Bashan used to be known as a land of the Rephaites. (14) Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, took the whole region of Argob as far as the border of the Geshurites and the Maakathites; it was named after him, so that to this day Bashan is called Havvoth Jair.) (15) And I gave Gilead to Makir. (16) But to the Reubenites and the Gadites I gave the territory extending from Gilead down to the Arnon Gorge (the middle of the gorge being the border) and out to the Jabbok River, which is the border of the Ammonites. (17) Its western border was the Jordan in the Arabah, from Kinnereth to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea), below the slopes of Pisgah.

(18) I commanded you at that time: “The Lord your God has given you this land to take possession of it. But all your able-bodied men, armed for battle, must cross over ahead of the other Israelites. (19) However, your wives, your children and your livestock (I know you have much livestock) may stay in the towns I have given you, (20) until the Lord gives rest to your fellow Israelites as he has to you, and they too have taken over the land that the Lord your God is giving them across the Jordan. After that, each of you may go back to the possession I have given you.”

(21) At that time I commanded Joshua: “You have seen with your own eyes all that the Lord your God has done to these two kings. The Lord will do the same to all the kingdoms over there where you are going. (22) Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you.”

(23) At that time I pleaded with the Lord: (24) “Sovereign Lord, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works you do? (25) Let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan—that fine hill country and Lebanon.”

(26) But because of you the Lord was angry with me and would not listen to me. “That is enough,” the Lord said. “Do not speak to me anymore about this matter. (27) Go up to the top of Pisgah and look west and north and south and east. Look at the land with your own eyes, since you are not going to cross this Jordan. (28) But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead this people across and will cause them to inherit the land that you will see.” (29) So we stayed in the valley near Beth Peor.

COMMENTS – 20:37
Well, beloved, over and over again, as we read how God directed them to take new portions of the Promised Land. God told them through Moses, “See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Well, in other words, they’re told, God has already won. He’s given you the victory. Don’t be afraid and don’t be discouraged.

Beloved, are you afraid? Are you discouraged? Is there a battle in your life that seems to have you defeated something that you just can’t get victory over? Well, if you’ve put your faith in Jesus, then you have everything you need to claim victory. Jesus defeated sin and death because of his death on the cross and resurrection on the third day. If you belong to Jesus, the chains of sin are broken. You’re no longer a slave to it. Leave it behind as the children of Israel left the wilderness behind when they entered into the Promised Land. Don’t look back! Look ahead. Keep your eyes on Jesus. He is the fulfillment of the promise of a new life. You have only to claim it.

“See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

ON THIS DATE IN CHURCH HISTORY – 23:17
On this date in church history, June 20, 1779, Dorothy Ann Thrupp was born. She was an English devotional writer, but she’s best remembered as the author of the hymn “Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us”. And just about two years ago, I did an episode of Lifespring HymnStories about that hymn. If you’d like to hear more of the hymn, and if you’d like to hear that story, go to lifespringmedia.com/hs57 (h-s, lowercase).

And on this date in church history, June 20, 1885, a band of Moravian missionaries landed on the shores of Alaska and established the Bethel Mission. During their first year of mission work among the natives, winter temperatures fell to 50 degrees below zero. Oh, my goodness, that’s cold!

PRAYER REQUEST AND PRAISE – 24:15
I have a prayer request and a praise from Anonymous in Wisconsin. And Anonymous, I’m going to change the prayer request as I read it to help keep it anonymous. Since one of the names you shared in your request is unique enough that if I read it, I think it would give away your identity. The Lord knows who we’re praying for even if I change the name. So here’s the request: “Please pray for John, Mary and their family’s salvation. John doesn’t believe that God exists. And Mary doesn’t think he needs to have a personal relationship. Please pray that they’re saved, they return to Tina and I and that we follow God together. Thank you.”

Well, thank you for that prayer request. And we’ll get to that in just a minute after I share your praise which is “Father, thank you for helping my family make our hay crop. You have protected and pleased us in Jesus name.”

Okay, so yes, that is a praise. You know being a city boy my whole life I never think about the fact that there are probably farmers out there listening as you’re doing your farmer stuff. I don’t know what all that is. But interestingly–I’ve never shared this on any of my shows–my dad who was my stepdad, his name was Ken, and he was from Laporte City, Iowa which is a little tiny city in Iowa. Well, his stepdad whom we called Pa–we called my dad’s mom and dad, Ma and Pa–and Pa had a shop that he fixed the farm implements. They’d bring–I don’t know what they called them, because I was not a farmer then and I’m not when now–but they bring implements in that needed to be repaired or sharpened or things like that. And so that’s the closest I ever got to really knowing anything about farmers. But I just thought I would share that. But Anonymous, thank you for sharing your prayer request and your praise. And I’ve run on long enough here, so let’s pray.

CLOSING PRAYER – 20:05
Our heavenly Father, help us to remember the lessons you teach us. We are so forgetful, and we do need reminders. Thank you so much that you’ve preserved your word through the centuries, Lord. Give us a deepening desire to know it better and to know you better. We love you, Lord, and we thank you for being so understanding of our weaknesses, including our forgetfulness.

And Lord right now we pray for John and Mary. Reveal yourself to John in such a way that he will come to know that you are indeed real, and that you love him. And help both John and Mary know that having a relationship with you is the only way to salvation. You love both of them, Lord, infinitely more than Anonymous and Tina ever could, and so I pray that you would work in John and Mary’s lives in whatever way necessary to bring them both to you. And may their family be brought back together so that they can serve you and bring glory to you.

And thank you Lord for the hay crop that they were able to bring in. And I ask that this crop be a blessing far and above anything they ever expected.

You are a good and gracious God and we praise you Lord. And Father, I now ask that you would bless the Lifespring family today. You know every need, you know, every hurt, and you know the heartaches and the joys. How good it is to know that you are by our side, and that you delight when we come to you with our needs and our praises. We love you Lord and we pray this in Jesus name, amen.

If you’ve got a prayer request or a praise, please do go to prayer.lifespringmedia.com just like anonymous did and we’ll pray together on the show and I will pray for you in my private prayer time.

1 comment on “Deuteronomy 1-3: Moses On The Threshold

  1. Denise says:

    In Deuteronomy 1:37 & 3:26, Moses seems to blame the Israelites for the fact that God would not allow him to enter the Promised Land. But we just read a few episodes ago in Numbers 20 that God prevented Moses from entering the Promised Land because of Moses’ disobedience at Meribah where he struck the rock instead of speaking to it. Am I reading this right? Is Moses blaming others for something that was his own stupid fault?
