Deuteronomy 27:6 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
At the same time, Jehovah had caused the people to be told that they were His treasured people of possession, as He had said in Exodus 19:5-6; and that if they kept all His commandments, He would set them highest above all nations whom He had created, "for praise, and for a name, and for glory," i.e., make them an object of praise, and renown, and glorification of God, the Lord and Creator of Israel, among all nations (vid., Jeremiah 33:9 and Jeremiah 13:11; Jeremiah 3:19-20). "And that it should become a holy people unto the Lord," as He had already said in Exodus 19:6. The sanctification of Israel was the design and end of its divine election, and would be accomplished in the glory to which the people of God were to be exalted (see the commentary on Exodus 19:5-6). The Hiphil האמיר, which is only found here, has no other meaning than this, "to cause a person to say," or "give him occasion to say;" and this is perfectly appropriate here, whereas the other meaning suggested, "to exalt," has no tenable support either in the paraphrastic rendering of these verses in the ancient versions, or in the Hithpael in Psalm 94:4, and moreover is altogether unsuitable in Deuteronomy 26:17.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
If you make me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stones, for if you wield your tool on it you profane it.
And there you shall build an altar to the LORD your God, an altar of stones. You shall wield no iron tool on them;
and you shall sacrifice peace offerings and shall eat there, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God.
1 Kings 6:7
When the house was built, it was with stone prepared at the quarry, so that neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron was heard in the house while it was being built.
