Deuteronomy 32:10 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"The Rock - blameless is His work; for all His ways are right: a God of faithfulness, and without injustice; just and righteous is He. Corruptly acts towards Him, not His children; their spot, a perverse and crooked generation." הצּוּר is placed first absolutely, to give it the greater prominence. God is called "the rock," as the unchangeable refuge, who grants a firm defence and secure resort to His people, by virtue of His unchangeableness or impregnable firmness (see the synonym, "the Stone of Israel," in Genesis 49:24). This epithet points to the Mosaic age; and this is clearly shown by the use made of this title of God (Zur) in the construction of surnames in the Mosaic era; such, for example, as Pedahzur (Numbers 1:10), which is equivalent to Pedahel ("God-redeemed," Numbers 34:28), Elizur (Numbers 1:5), Zuriel (Numbers 3:35), and Zurishaddai (Numbers 1:6; Numbers 2:12). David, who had so often experienced the rock-like protection of his God, adopted it in his Psalms (2 Samuel 22:3, 2 Samuel 22:32 equals Psalm 18:3, Psalm 18:32; also Psalm 19:15; Psalm 31:3-4; Psalm 71:3). Perfect (i.e., blameless, without fault or blemish) is His work; for His ways, which He adopts in His government of the world, are right. As the rock, He is "a God of faithfulness," upon which men may rely and build in all the storms of life, and "without iniquity," i.e., anything crooked or false in His nature.
