By Moshe A. Zipor (Bar Ilan University, Ramat Can 51000, Israel) Part I: The Account in Chapters 9--10 and its message In his Deuteronomic speeches Moses warns the people against false conceptions which might lead to wanton behaviour. In 9,1 --10,11 there are two such warnings: 1. On entering the Land of Canaan the people are likely to withdraw in the face of the »greater and mightier« local residents (cfr. 1,28) and Moses reminds them that it is God's presence that goes before the people (9,1-3). * This is an extended revised version of a Hebrew article (Zipor, 1988). Recently, a comprehensive analysis of Deut 9,7--10,11 and Ch. 4 by O'Connell has appeared. In order to avoid duplication, I have omitted a number of arguments discussed by O'Connell and concentrate on those highlighting my own approach. O'Connell considers the »double giving of the Law« as the central theme of the pericope. This issue will be examined below.
