Deuteronomy 31:7 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Be strong - חזקו chizku, the same word that is used Exodus 4:21 (note), Exodus 9:15 (note), for hardening Pharaoh's heart. See the notes there. The Septuagint, in this and the following verse, have, Ανδριζου και ισχυε, Play the man, and be strong; and from this St. Paul seems to have borrowed his ideas, 1 Corinthians 16:13 : Στηκετε εν τῃ πιστει· ανδριζεσθε, κρατιουσθε: Stand firm in the faith; play the man - act like heroes; be vigorous.
