Deuteronomy 10

Everett's Study Notes on the Holy ScripturesEverett's Study Notes

Verses 1-22

Deuteronomy 10:6 And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of the children of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his stead.

Deuteronomy 10:6 “Mosera” Comments - The book of Numbers tells us that Aaron died in mount Hor (Numbers 20:27-28; Numbers 33:38). Thus, Easton says “(Mosera) has been identified with el-Tayibeh, a small fountain at the bottom of the pass leading to the ascent of Mount Hor.” Thus, Mosera and Hor essentially refer to the same place where Aaron died. The name “Mosera” may possibly be the same as “Moseroth”, a place of encampment of the Israelites (Numbers 33:30-31).

Numbers 20:27-28, “And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.”

Numbers 33:38, “And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the first day of the fifth month.”

Numbers 33:30-31, “And they departed from Hashmonah, and encamped at Moseroth. And they departed from Moseroth, and pitched in Benejaakan.”

Deuteronomy 10:12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

Deuteronomy 10:13 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?

Deuteronomy 10:12-13 Comments Summary - The commandment to serve the Lord with all of their heart and soul, and to keep the statutes is given in Deuteronomy 10:12-13, and explained at length in Deuteronomy 10:14 through Deuteronomy 11:32.
