Big Idea: Israel must pass on both the story of and the laws of the covenant to the next generation who did not witness the Exodus themselves so that they can "do well" and be "righteous" before their God. Questions: What does "righteousness" mean in the phrase "it will be righteousness before God if... "? As the NPP and any other competent reader of this text will surely note, the righteousness here indicated is clearly not "earning" the "salvation" found in the Exodus: Israel is already saved in that way (cf. Deut. 9:4–6). So this righteousness is responsive. Yet, is this righteous obedience to "this whole command" devoid of any concept of merit and contingency ? The answer to this is obviously No . The conditional particle ki indicates that something hangs on the nation's obedience to the whole of the "command" which Moses is commanding them this day: i.e., Torah. That which hangs on this contingency is nothing less than their status in the Land as God's chosen Covenantal people who have been commissioned to perform a covenantal vocation in redemptive history on behalf of men . The last time Moses presented the whole command, the Book of the Covenant, is Exod. 24, where the text recounts: “Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it in the hearing of the people. And they said, ‘All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.’ And Moses took the blood and threw it on the people and said, ‘Behold the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words.’” (Exod 24:7-8 ESV) Deut. 4:1, 5:33, 8:1, and 30:15–18 all carry this same contingency in their repetition of this covenant's terms: do this and live/do not do this and die. The nature of this covenant is such that life hangs on creaturely obedience to the whole of the Creator's command—in heart, word, and deed—in order that Israel perform its priestly task of mediating blessing for the rest of God's creatures. This they failed. Regardless, this covenant righteousness can be seen as a responsive yet necessary condition for future life, and this is summed up neatly in the term covenantal nomism . I. The Main Action of God’s Covenant People: Hear! Learn! Obey! (5:1–6:3) A. The Ground of Being God’s Covenant People (5:2–31) B. The Consequence of Being God’s Covenant People (5:32–6:3) II.

Everywhere you live should be marked by this covenant (6:9) C. Covenant Ethics: What Love Looks Like (6:10–25) 1. Ethical Duties while in the Land (6:10–17) a. Don't forget God but fear him (6:10–13) b. Fearing God expanded (6:14–17) 2. Ethical Duties in order to enter the Land (6:18–19) 3. Passing on the Covenant and its Ethics to the Next Generation (6:20–25) a. Your Children will ask about this precious Covenant (6:20) b. You will tell your Children the Covenant story (6:21–25) i. God brought you out of slavery and gave you the Law (6:21–24) ii. Therefore it will be righteousness if you do it all! (6:25)
