Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 2:10


2:10 The Emims - Men terrible for stature and strength, as their very name imparts, whose expulsion by the Moabites is here noted as a great encouragement to the Israelites, for whose sake he would much more drive out the wicked and accursed Canaanites.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 2

    Love reading this book in the bible. I thrill reading the accounts of God 's word and instructions given to the people. It 's like being there. And, although written hundreds of years earlier than today, knowing this is the same God, who became flesh so we could receive salvation is both awe inspiring and Instills a Godly fear in my heart. How amazing to think God loves His Creations! That includes people. However, God hates sin and will not share the same space with it. He would that none should perish, but that all people would come repent from sin to Him. Amen

    Wow im just blown away now. By the probability it seems that there were real giants that lived in the land. It does seem however that there are anti bible opponents in archeology that are hideing the findings of many archeological digs. Why? Because it goes against their darwin theory of evolution. It would make the bible literal.
