Verse of the Day (October 9, 2020) #BMSeminary – This verse contains a series of Qal IMPERFECTS, which serve as guidelines for the exclusive worship of YHWH: 1. “follow,” BDB 229, KB 246, cf. Deu 8:6; 2. “fear,” BDB 431, KB 432; 3. “keep,” BDB 1036, KB 1581, cf. Deu 5:29; Deu 6:2; 4. “listen,” BDB 1033, KB 1570; 5. “serve,” BDB 712, KB 773; 6. “cling,” BDB 179, KB 209; This verse is similar to Deu 6:13 and Deu 10:20. Part of the cultic worship of Israel was to make statements in the name of YHWH. Jesus seems to quote this verse in Mat 4:10 in His confrontation with the Evil One. He changes the word “fear” in Deu 6:13 to the word “worship,” which shows us that these two terms are basically synonymous. The name of God reflected His character and person.
