Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

Deuteronomy 25:10

"In Israel his name shall be called, `The house of him whose sandal is removed.'

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And his name shall be called in Israel,.... Not his particular and personal name, but his family; for it seems that not only a mark of infamy was set upon him for refusing to marry his brother's widow, but upon his family also:

the house of him that hath his shoe loosed; which, as Leo of Modena saysF19History, ut supra, sect. 5. (Leo Modena's History of Rites, &c. l. 1. sect. 5.) , was repeated by her three times; and at every time the people with a loud voice answer and call him, one that had his shoe loosed; and then the Rabbin tells the man that he is at liberty now to marry whom he pleases; and if he desires a certificate from them of this setting free his kinswoman, they presently give him one; and she also had a writing given to her by the judges, certifying the same, that she was free also to marry another; of which the following is a short form or copyF20T. Hieros. Sanhedrin, fol. 19. 1. ."In such or such a session (or court), such an one, the daughter of such an one, plucked off the shoe of such an one, the son of such an one, before us; she brought him before us, and she loosed the shoe of his right foot, and spit before him spittle, which was seen by us upon the ground; and said, so shall it be done to the man that would not build up his brother's house.'A larger form may be seen in MaimonidesF21Hilchot Yebum Vechalitzah, c. 4. sect. 29. , as well as a type and copy of the matrimonial contract. From this law an high priest was free, Leviticus 21:14; and so a king, according to the Jewish canonF23Misn. Sanhedrin, c. 2. sect. 2. .

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.

His name — That is, his person, and his posterity also. So it was a lasting blot.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

10. The house of him that hath his shoe loosed — That is, the house of the barefooted. The appellation denotes degradation.

George Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary

Unshod. Those who have no consideration for their brethren, or for the commonwealth, deserve to be despised. Much more do they who are appointed pastors of the Church, if they do not zealously endeavour to increase the number of God's servants, whom they must attach to him, and not to themselves. Thus the disciples of St. Paul were known by the general name of Christians. (St. Augustine, contra Faustus xxxii. 10.) (Worthington)
