Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 32:8

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 32:8


32:8 Their inheritance - When God by his providence allotted the several parts of the world to several people, which was done #Gen 10:1 |- 32 Gen 11:1 - 9. When he separated - Divided them in their languages and habitations according to their families. He set the bounds - That is, he disposed of the several lands and limits of the people so as to reserve a sufficient place for the great numbers of the people of Israel. And therefore he so guided the hearts of several people, that the posterity of Canaan, which was accursed of God, and devoted to ruin, should be seated in that country which God intended for the children of Israel, that so when their iniquities were ripe, they might be rooted out, and the Israelites come in their stead.
