The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleDeuteronomy 17:13
And all the people shall hear, and fear…
All the people
of Israel in their own cities, and particularly the judges in those
cities; they shall hear of what is done to the obstinate and
disobedient elder, and shall be afraid to commit the like offence, lest
they should come into the same punishment:
and do no more presumptuously;
after his example; hence, Jarchi says,
they wait till the feast comes, and then put him to death; and so it is
said F11, they bring him up to the great sanhedrim which is at
Jerusalem, and there keep him until the feast (the next feast), and put
him to death at the feast, as it is said,
all the people shall hear, and fear.
F11 Misn. Sanhedrin, c. 10. sect. 4.
