Deuteronomy 32:44 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 32:44

And Moses came
To the people, as the Greek version, the heads of the people being gathered together according to his order, ( Deuteronomy 31:28 ) ; The Targum of Jonathan says, he came from the tabernacle, the house of instruction:

and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people;
which is observed both before and after the reading of it, to show the certainty of it, and how punctually and faithfully he had delivered it:

he, and Hoshea the son of Nun;
the same with Joshua, whose name at first was Hoshea, ( Numbers 13:16 ) , probably Joshua read the song to one part of the people, while Moses read it to the other.
