Deuteronomy 27:26 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

That confirmeth not all the words of this law - The word כל col, All, is not found in any printed copy of the Hebrew text; but the Samaritan preserves it, and so do six MSS. in the collections of Kennicott and De Rossi, besides several copies of the Chaldee Targum. The Septuagint also, and St. Paul in his quotation of this place, Galatians 3:10. St. Jerome says that the Jews suppressed the word, that it might not appear that they were bound to fulfill All the precepts in the law of Moses.

1. Dr. Kennicott, who contends that it was the Decalogue that was written on the stones mentioned in this chapter, says, "If we examine these twelve curses, they will appear to contain a strong enforcement of the ten commands; and it is highly probable that the curses were here proclaimed principally to secure obedience to the commandments, as will be made more clear by the table: -

The first, second, third, and fourth Commandments

Galatians 3:15 - Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination to the Lord, etc.

The fifth Commandment

Galatians 3:16 - Cursed be he that setteth light by his father or his mother.

The sixth Commandment

Galatians 3:25 - Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person.

Galatians 3:24 - Cursed be he that smiteth his neighbor secretly.

Galatians 3:18 - Cursed be he that maketh the blind to wander out of the way.

The seventh Commandment

Galatians 3:20 - Cursed be he that lieth with his father's wife.

Galatians 3:21 - Cursed be he that lieth with any beast.

Galatians 3:22 - Cursed be he that lieth with his sister.

Gilgal, in Deuteronomy 11:30 what the Place Was.
That which is said by Moses, that "Gerizim and Ebal were over-against Gilgal," Deuteronomy 11:30, is so obscure, that it is rendered into contrary significations by interpreters. Some take it in that sense, as if it were near to Gilgal: some far off from Gilgal: the Targumists read, "before Gilgal": while, as I think, they do not touch the difficulty; which lies not so much in the signification of the word Mul, as in the ambiguity of the word Gilgal. These do all seem to understand that Gilgal which
