New Defender's Study Bible Notes
32:17 sacrificed unto devils. The “strange gods” and “abominations” (that is, idols) of Deuteronomy 32:16 are the “devils” (that is, demons) of Deuteronomy 32:17. It is important to remember that the worship of any “god” or religious system other than the true God of creation and redemption is really the worship of evil spirits. Compare I Corinthians 10:20.
