Deu 5:15

“therefore Yahweh your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.” God rested on the seventh day in Genesis 2:1-3, but He did not command that anyone follow His example and rest on the seventh day until Exodus 16, when He gave the manna from heaven, and even then He did not fully explain the Sabbath. The Sabbath became part of the Law and the Old Covenant when it was given as part of the Ten Commandments (Exod. 20:8-11). [For more on the Sabbath, see commentary on Exod. 20:10].

  (top)
Deu 5:16

“you.” This is the fifth of the Ten Commandments. The “you” verb is singular. See commentary on Exodus 20:3, “you.”

“in the land.” That is, in the land of Israel. Israel, the “Promised Land,” was the land God was giving to the Israelites.

“is giving you.” Some versions have “is about to give you,” and the Hebrew can have that meaning, and also that was mostly true since Israel had not crossed the Jordan River yet, but by Deuteronomy the process of God giving the Promised Land to Israel had begun. For one thing, the Canaanites had heard that Israel was coming and were afraid of them, which gave Israel an advantage (Josh. 2:9).

  (top)

“you.” This is the sixth of the Ten Commandments. The verb is singular, not plural. See commentary on Exodus 20:3, “you.”

“These words Yahweh spoke to all your assembly.” This refers to God Himself speaking the Ten Commandments in a loud voice from Mount Sinai, which occurred between Moses’ 3rd and 4th time up Mount Sinai. [For more on God speaking the Ten Commandments directly to the Israelites, see commentary on Exodus 19:9].

“And he wrote them on two tablets of stone.” God wrote the Ten Commandments on stone on Moses’ 5th trip up Mount Sinai. [For more on Moses’ trips up and down Mount Sinai, see commentary on Exodus 19:3].
