The wise man Solomon once wrote: "Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18). During the writing of Deuteronomy, Israel is on the cusp of invading the promised land. God was about to give them tremendous victory in the face of overwhelming odds against them. It would be easy for Israel to think their abilities and even their righteousness was the cause of their success. So in this chapter, Moses gives them a stern warning against pride and a reminder they were no beacon of fidelity.
