 8:4
 8:5
8:4 The clothing you wore did not become tattered, and your feet did not become bruised these forty years.
Simlatecha lo valtah me'aleycha veraglecha lo vatsekah zeh arba'im shanah.
8:5 You must thus meditate on the fact that just as a man might chastise his child, so God your Lord is chastising you.
Veyadata im-levavecha ki ka'asher yeyaser ish et-beno Adonay Eloheycha meyasreka.



Commentary:

become bruised
  (Lekach Tov). Batzak in Hebrew. Or, 'swell' (Targum; Rashi; Ibn Ezra); 'lacked shoes' (Saadia; Radak, Sherashim; cf. Septuagint); or, 'become painfully hardened' (Septuagint).
