23地 不可永 卖 ,因为地 是我的;你们在我面前是客旅 ,是寄居的 。




23 ¶ The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.a
23 Verse 23. The land shall not be sold for ever-the land is

mine] As God in a miraculous manner gave them possession of

this land, they were therefore to consider themselves merely as

tenants to him; and on this ground he, as the great landholder

or lord of the soil, prescribes to them all the conditions on

which they shall hold it. This one circumstance was peculiarly

favourable to their advancement in religion, in righteousness,

and true holiness; for feeling that they had nothing which they

could call their own upon earth, they must frequently, by this,

be put in mind of the necessity of having a permanent dwelling

in the heavenly inheritance, and of that preparation without

which it could not be possessed.
