The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleDeuteronomy 30:13
Neither [is] it beyond the sea…
There is no need to
travel into foreign parts, into transmarine countries for it, as the
Heathen philosophers did to get knowledge; for the Gospel is ordered to
be preached to all the world, and sent into all nations; and at the
time of the conversion of the Jews the earth will be filled with the
knowledge of it, as the waters cover the sea; so that there will be no
need to go into distant countries for it; nor any occasion
that thou shouldest say, who shall go over the sea for us, and bring
it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
which would be all one as
to desire "to bring up Christ again from the dead"; when he is already
risen, and is gone to heaven, where he ever lives to make intercession
for us; is thereby declared to be the Son of God with power, and is
discharged as the surety of his people, having done completely what he
engaged to do; and is risen for their justification, and become the
firstfruits of the resurrection of the dead; wherefore whoever
confesses with his mouth, and believes with his heart, that God has
raised him from the dead, that is enough, he shall be saved: what a
sublime sense of the words is this the apostle gives and how puerile is
that of the Chaldee paraphrast in comparison of it!
(See Gill on 10:6).
