Keep All My Commandments Always

Deuteronomy 5:1
And Moses called all Israel,
and said unto them, Hear, O Israel,
the statutes and judgments
which I speak in your ears this day,
that ye may learn them,
and keep, and do them.

1. God speaks to the people.
2. The people are called to hear what God speaks.
3. To learn what they heard, that they may be thoroughly instructed in the will of God.
4. To keep God’s testimonies ever in mind, and to treasure them up in a believing and upright heart.
5. That they might do them – obey the whole will of God, taking his word for the invariable rule of their conduct. Should not all these points be kept in view by every Christian assembly? Clarke’s Commentary

Deuteronomy 5:33
Ye shall walk in all the ways
which the LORD your God hath commanded you,
that ye may live,
and that it may be well with you,
and that ye may prolong your days
in the land which ye shall possess.

God never gave a commandment to man which he did not design that he should obey.
That ye may enjoy life,  . . .that it may be well with you  . . .God will prosper you in all things essential to the welfare of your bodies, and the salvation of your souls.
That ye may arrive at a good old age, and grow more and more meet for the inheritance among the saints in light. Clarke’s Commentary

Deuteronomy 5:29
O that there were such an heart in them,
that they would fear me,
and keep all my commandments always,
that it might be well with them,
and with their children for ever!
