Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO DEUTERONOMY 11\\

In this chapter, the exhortation to love the Lord, and keep his
commands, is repeated and urged again and again from various
considerations; as not only from the chastisement of Pharaoh and the
wicked Egyptians, but of such Israelites who offended the Lord, and
transgressed his law, \\#De 12:1-7\\, from the goodness and
excellency of the land they were going to inherit, \\#De 11:8-11\\,
from the blessing of rain that would come upon it, and be productive
of all good things for man and beast, in case of obedience, and a
restraint of it in case of disobedience, \\#De 11:12-17\\, from the
continuance of them and their offspring in the land, should they be
careful to observe the commands themselves, and teach them their
children, \\#De 11:18-21\\, and from the extensiveness of their
conquests and dominions, \\#De 11:22-25\\ and from the different
issue and effects of their conduct and behaviour, a blessing upon
them if obedient, but a curse if disobedient, \\#De 11:26-28\\ and
the chapter is concluded with an exhortation to pronounce the
blessing on Mount Gerizim, and the curse on Mount Ebal; the
situation of which places is described when they should come into the
land of Canaan, of which they are assured, \\#De 11:29-32\\.
