Deuteronomy 5:27 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 5:27

Go thou near
To the mount, and to God on it:

and hear all that the Lord our God shall say;
for they supposed, by the continuance of the Lord on the mount, and the fire burning on it, that he had more to say, which they were not averse to hear; but desired it might be not immediately delivered to them, but by the means of Moses; the sound of the words, and the sight of the fire, being so terrible to them:

and speak thou unto us all that the Lord our God shall speak unto thee:
they did not doubt, knowing the faithfulness of Moses, his declaring all unto them that should be told him by the Lord; and they were desirous that he should, they did not want to have anything withheld from them, only they could not bear to see and hear things immediately from the Lord:

and we will hear it and do it;
hearken to it, and receive it, as the word of God, and not man, and yield a ready and cheerful obedience, even to everything that should be required; see ( Exodus 20:19 ) ( 24:3-7 ) .

Deuteronomy 5:27 In-Context

25 But why risk it further? This huge fire will devour us if we stay around any longer. If we hear God's voice anymore, we'll die for sure.
26 Has anyone ever known of anyone who has heard the Voice of God the way we have and lived to tell the story?
27 "From now on, you go and listen to what God, our God, says and then tell us what God tells you. We'll listen and we'll do it."
28 God heard what you said to me and told me, "I've heard what the people said to you. They're right - good and true words.
29 What I wouldn't give if they'd always feel this way, continuing to revere me and always keep all my commands; they'd have a good life forever, they and their children!
