Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 11:16

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 11:16


11:14 The ruin of your land - Which is, proper to your land, not common to Egypt, where, as all authors agree, there is little rain. The first rain fell in seed time, to make the corn spring, the other a little before harvest, to ripen it.

11:15 I will send grass in thy fields - So godliness has here the promise of the life which now is. But the favour of God puts gladness into the heart, more than the increase of corn, wine and oil.

11:17 Shut up the heaven - Which is compared sometimes to a great store - house wherein God lays up his treasures of rain, #Job 38:22|, the doors whereof God is said to open when he gives rain, and to shut when he witholds it.

11:18 Lay up - Let us all observe these three rules, Let our hearts be filled with the word of God. Lay up these words in your hearts, as in a store - house, to be used upon all occasions. Let our eyes be fixed upon the word of God: Bind them for a sign upon your hand, which is always in view, and as frontlets between your eyes, which you cannot avoid the sight of. Let our tongues be employed about the word of God, especially with our children, who must be taught this, as far more needful than the rules of decency, or the calling they are to live by.
