Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 33:28


33:28 Alone - Either Tho' they be alone, and have no confederates to defend them, but have all the world against them, yet my single protection shall be sufficient for them. Or, Distinct and separated from all other nations, with whom I will not have them mingle themselves. The fountain - That is, the posterity of Jacob, which flowed from him as waters from a fountain, in great abundance. The fountain is here put for the river or streams which flow from it, as Jacob or Israel who is the fountain is often put for the children of Israel. His heavens - That is, those heavens or that air which hangs over his land.

    Dear Joyce; I was just reading in Ezekiel 13 and found clearly written answers to our questions about missing names or tribes. "And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel.." Please read Ezekiel 13!

    Simeon is mentioned 50 times through out the King James Bible, in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezekiel, Luke, Acts, and Revelation.
    May God bless you.

    Have you noticed also in Revelation 7, Dan is not mentioned? Is it an indication of some that are not going to make it?
  • Brenda
    Read Genesis 34:25-31 it tells a bit more of Simeon and how he joined forces with is younger brother Levi in the massacre of Shecemites and the reason why it was done.
