God’s Song

The song that God told Moses to write down in the book of the law (Deuteronomy) to instruct the people. It’s a rather long song and a very important song…with a big ending. It’s a song that tells a story and issues a warning. On this day Moses seems to have introduced the writing technique that country music song writers would use centuries later – the story song.

Deuteronomy 32:10
10 “He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
11 Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions,
12 the LORD alone guided him, no foreign god was with him.
13 He made him ride on the high places of the land, and he ate the produce of the field, and he suckled him with honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock.
