Deuteronomy

from Holy Bible (KJV) – Bible Table of Contents on Rap Genius

Meaning

This book derives its English name from the Greek word deuteronomion, meaning the “second law,” or the “law repeated.”

Deuteronomy is essentially Moses’ farewell address(es) to a new generation in which he summons them to hear the law of God, to be instructed in the application of its principles to the new circumstances awaiting them, and to renew intelligently the covenant God had made with their fathers — a covenant that must be faithfully observed as the condition of God’s blessings upon them in the Promised Land.
