A brief outline of Deuteronomy is as follows:
- A retrospect of Israel’s wanderings (chapters 1-4). Moses’ first speech to the people. Looking back: He reminded the people of God’s faithfulness in their journey from Egypt.
- A rehearsal of Israel’s law (chapters 5-26). Moses’ second speech to the people. Looking up: He reviewed God’s laws and warned the people not to anger God by disobeying Him.
- A renewal of Israel’s covenant (chapters 27-34). Moses’ third speech to the people. Looking out: He reviewed the agreement between God and the people and assured them of God’s continual protection.
