So Moses finished telling the Israelites what they had to do in order to keep the agreement the Lord was making with them in Moab, which was in addition to the one the Lord had made with them at Mount Sinai.
The Lord made an agreement with the Israelites at Mount Horeb. In addition to that agreement, he also commanded Moses to make another agreement with them while they were in Moab. This is that agreement.
The Lord commanded Moses to ·make [L cut] an ·agreement [covenant; treaty] with the ·Israelites [L sons/T children of Israel] in Moab in addition to the ·agreement [covenant; treaty] he had ·made [L cut] with them at ·Mount Sinai [L Horeb; 1:6]. These are the words of that ·agreement [covenant; treaty].
2 The people are exhorted to observe the commandments. 10 The whole people from the highest to the lowest are comprehended under God’s covenant. 19 The punishment of him that flattereth himself in his wickedness. 24 The cause of God’s wrath against his people. These are the words of the covenant which the Lord commandeth Moses to make with the children of Israel, in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he had made with them in Horeb.
These are the terms of the covenant that the Lord commanded Moses to make with the people of Israel in the land of Moab; all this was in addition to the covenant which the Lord had made with them at Mount Sinai.
These be the words of the bond of peace, which the Lord commanded to Moses, that he should make with the sons of Israel in the land of Moab, besides the bond of peace, which he covenanted with them in Horeb. (These be the words of the covenant, which the Lord commanded to Moses, that he should make with the Israelites in the land of Moab, in addition to the covenant which he made with them on Mount Sinai.)
