Deuteronomy 9:5-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

For thou entrust not to inherit their land for thy righteousness, or for their upright heart, but for the wickedness of those nations, the Lord thy God doth cast them out before thee, and that he might perform the word which the Lord thy God sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Understand therefore, that the Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness: for thou art a [a]stiff-necked people.

¶ Remember and forget not, how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to anger in the wilderness: [b]since the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came into this place, ye have rebelled against the Lord.


  1. Deuteronomy 9:6 Like stubborn oxen which will not endure their master’s yoke.
  2. Deuteronomy 9:7 He proveth by the length of time, that their rebellion was most great and intolerable.

Deuteronomy 9:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land; but on account of the wickedness of these nations, the Lord your God will drive them out before you, to accomplish what he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the Lord your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.

The Golden Calf

Remember this and never forget how you aroused the anger of the Lord your God in the wilderness. From the day you left Egypt until you arrived here, you have been rebellious against the Lord.
