COETSEE, Albert. YHWH's "Greatness," "Mighty hand," "Deeds" and "Mighty Acts" in Deuteronomy 3:24. Old testam. essays [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.1, pp.114-140. ISSN 2312-3621.

This article investigates the four words or phrases used in Deut 3:24 to describe the uniqueness of YHWH, namely "greatness" (•’’•’–), "mighty hand" (•’• •’•‘•’—’•), "deeds" (–’–‘—’•) and "mighty acts" (•‘’”•’—’•). Commentary on these four words or phrases is usually limited to a brief discussion of their possible referential background. Virtually no attempt is made to distinguish between the meanings of these words. Secondly, little conclusive proof is provided for the assumed referential background of the words, and thirdly, scholars are silent on the distinctive contribution of Deut 3:24 to Deuteronomy's overall theme of the uniqueness of YHWH. This article aims to address these three lacunae.

Palabras clave : Deuteronomy 3:23-29; Deuteronomy 3:24; uniqueness or incomparability of YHWH; •‘’”•’—’• .•’’•’ – ,•’• •’•‘•’—’• ,–’–‘—’•.
