Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 11:22

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 11:22


11:21 As the days of heaven - As long as the heaven keeps its place and continues its influences upon earth.

11:24 Every place - Not absolutely, as the Rabbins fondly conceit, but in the promised land, as it is restrained in the following words; either by possession, or by dominion, namely, upon condition of your obedience. The wilderness - Of Sin, on the south - side. To Lebanon - Which was on the north border. Euphrates - On the east. So far the right of dominion extended, but that their sins cut them short: and so far Solomon extended his dominion. The uttermost sea - The western or midland sea.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 11:22

  • The condition for inheriting i.e., taking possession of the land was obedience to God s Word and faithfulness i.e., full dependence on the Lord for victory . Here s the point saved Israelites unconditionally received God as their inheritance, but possession of Canaan land was conditional, depending on their obedience and faithfulness to Jehovah... it is a mistake of equating Canaan land with heaven, but that is a hermeneutical error in my opinion. We believe Canaan land is a picture of two things 1 spiritual victory in the present life, which leads to 2 inheriting Millennial rest in the life to come. Incidentally, even after taking possession of Canaan land the Israelites had the potential of losing it, if they became unfaithful see Deut. 28 58, 63. Cr. James Hollandsworth KingdomPreparation
