Deuteronomy 30:18 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 30:18

I denounce unto, you this day that ye shall surely perish,
&c.] By one judgment or another; this he most solemnly averred, and it might be depended upon that it would certainly be their case; see ( Deuteronomy 4:26 ) ;

[and that] ye shall not prolong [your] days upon the land, whither
thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it;
but be cut short by death, of one kind or another, by sword, or famine, or pestilence, or be carried into captivity; one or other of which were frequently their case.

Deuteronomy 30:18 In-Context

16 For I am commanding you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, statutes, and ordinances, so that you may live and multiply, and the Lord your God may bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
17 But if your heart turns away and you do not listen and you are led astray to bow down to other gods and worship them,
18 I tell you today that you will certainly perish and will not live long in the land you are entering to possess across the Jordan.
19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live,
20 love the Lord your God, obey Him, and remain faithful to Him. For He is your life, and He will prolong your life in the land the Lord swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."
