SynopsisIn the last passage, God gave Moses a song to sing, to “testify” against the Israelites, then they inevitably fall into sin (see 31:19–22). In this passage, we get the text of the song.
He then goes on, in verses 3–4, to praise the LORD, for being perfect, faithful, and just. And in verses 5–6, he compares that with the actions of the LORD’s people, who have left Him and His ways—which flabbergasts him, when he thinks about all the LORD has done for them.
Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
