Question by s bennett: What/who is John Winthrop quoting in “A Model of Christian Charity”?
This following is quoted from John Winthrop’s sermon in “A Model of Christian Charity” and I was asking yourself who precisely he was quoting starting at “Beloved, there is now…”
“And to shut this discourse with that exhortation of Moses, that faithful servant of the Lord, in his last farewell to Israel, Deut. 30. ‘Beloved, there is now set ahead of us life and death, excellent and evil,’ in that we are commanded this day to love the Lord our God, and…”
I thought it was from the book of Deuteronomy in the Bible, but I cannot discover that quote anyplace and was questioning specifically who or what he was quoting. Can any person provide a solid answer?
Answer by Dude the Obscure
No, it actually is Deuteronomy, chap. 30 verse 15. There are a lot of diverse English-language translations of the bible, so the 1 you had been seeking at may have slightly different wording from the one Winthrop was making use of.
