Deuteronomy 32:31-33 New English Translation (NET Bible)

31 For our enemies’[a] rock is not like our Rock,
as even our enemies concede.
32 For their vine is from the stock[b] of Sodom,
and from the fields of Gomorrah.[c]
Their grapes contain venom;
their clusters of grapes are bitter.
33 Their wine is snakes’ poison,
the deadly venom of cobras.


  1. Deuteronomy 32:31 tn Heb “their,” but the referent (enemies) is specified in the translation for the sake of clarity.
  2. Deuteronomy 32:32 tn Heb “vine.”
  3. Deuteronomy 32:32 sn Sodom…Gomorrah. The term “vine” is a reference to the pagan deities which, the passage says, find their ultimate source in Sodom and Gomorrah, that is, in the soil of perversion exemplified by these places (cf. Gen 18:20; 19:4-28; Isa 1:10; 3:9; Jer 23:14; Lam 4:6; Ezek 16:44-52; Matt 10:15; 11:23-24).
