- n. The second law, or second statement of the law: the name given to the fifth book of the Pentateuch, consisting chiefly of three addresses purporting to have been made by Moses to Israel shortly before his death. The Mosaic origin of the book is disputed by main modern critics, as is also the date of composition, which some regard as subsequent to Isaiah. Abbreviated Deut.

- From the name which the book bears in the Septuagint (Ancient Greek Δευτερονόμιον (Deuteronomion) and in the Vulgate Latin Deuteronomium). This is based upon the erroneous Septuagint rendering of משנה התורה הזאת (mishnah ha-torah ha-zot) (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." (Wiktionary)
- Late Latin deuteronomium, from Greek deuteronomion, a second law (from (to) deuteronomion (touto), Septuagint mistranslation of Hebrew mišnê hattôrâ hazzō't, a copy of this law) : deuteros, second; see deu-1 in Indo-European roots + nomos, law; see nem- in Indo-European roots.
