The first part of Moses's farewell sermon to
Israel begins with this chapter, and is continued to the latter end
of the fourth chapter. In the first five verses of this chapter we
have the date of the sermon, the place where it was preached
(ver. 1, 2, 5), and the
time when, ver. 3, 4. The
narrative in this chapter reminds them, I. Of the promise God made
them of the land of Canaan, ver.
6-8. II. Of the provision made of judges for them,
ver. 9-18. III. Of their
unbelief and murmuring upon the report of the spies, ver. 19-33. IV. Of the sentence
passed upon them for it, and the ratification of that sentence,
ver. 34, &c.
