  1. Deuteronomy(ProperNoun)

    The fifth of the Books of Moses in the Old Testament of the Bible, the fifth book in the Torah.

  2. Origin: From the name which the book bears in the Septuagint ( Δευτερονόμιον and in the Vulgate Deuteronomium). This is based upon the erroneous Septuagint rendering of משנה התורה הזאת (xvii. 18), which grammatically can mean only "a repetition [that is, a copy] of this law," but which is rendered by the Septuagint τὸ Δευτερουόμιου τοῦτο, as though the expression meant "this repetition of the law."

  1. Deuteronomy

    the fifth book of the Pentateuch, and so called as the re-statement and re-enforcement, as it were, by Moses of the Divine law proclaimed in the wilderness. The Mosaic authorship of this book is now called in question, though it is allowed to be instinct with the spirit of the religion instituted by Moses, and it is considered to have been conceived at a time when that religion with its ritual was established in Jerusalem, in order to confirm faith in the Divine origin and sanction of observances there.
