Numbers 34* The bounds of the promised land. (1-15) Those appointed todivide the land. (16-29)1-15 Canaan was of small extent; as it is here bounded, it isbut about 160 miles in length, and about 50 in breadth; yet thiswas the country promised to the father of the faithful, and thepossession of the seed of Israel. This was that little spot ofground, in which alone, for many ages, God was known. This wasthe vineyard of the Lord, the garden enclosed; but as it is withgardens and vineyards, the narrowness of the space was made upby the fruitfulness of the soil. Though the earth is the Lord's,and the fulness thereof, yet few know him, and serve him; butthose few are happy, because fruitful to God. Also, see howlittle a share of the world God gives to his own people. Thosewho have their portion in heaven, have reason to be content witha small pittance of this earth. Yet a little that a righteousman has, having it from the love of God, and with his blessing,is far better and more comfortable than the riches of manywicked. 16-29 God here appoints men to divide the land to them. So suremust they feel of victory and success while God fought for them,that the persons are named who should be intrusted with thedividing of the land.
