Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 32:11


32:11 Her nest - Her young ones in the nest; which she by her cry and motion provoketh to fly. Her wings - As preparing herself to fly. On her wings - Or, as on her wings, that is, gently, and tenderly and safely too, as if she carried them not in her claws for fear of hurting them, but upon her wings. Some say, the eagle doth usually carry her young ones upon her wings.

    To understand this better, just read the whole book of Deuteronomy and then re-read the chapter of the verse you're having difficulty with. Also don't allegorize and please don't say: "well this is what it means to me." It means something specifically!
    Read it. Put it in context. Who is speaking? Who is being spoken to?
    Don't be lazy.
