Psalms: 60, 61
Numbers: Only now are the Israelites becoming aware that the promise of the inheritance from God is about to be fulfilled. It is one thing to embrace a promise (as we have for heaven – our Promised Land) and quite another actually to embark on the fulfillment. The Reubanites and the Gadites had secured their own inheritance contingent upon their support of the remaining tribes’ getting theirs. This might have served as an encouragement to the remaining 9 tribes too. Israel got its Promised Land and so we shall get ours.
Num. 32:1-6, 16-27
