God’s Kindness to Israel
The song of Moses begins by calling on the heavens and the earth to bear witness to the teachings within. Moses describes God’s greatness in detail. Unlike His children, God is not corrupt. He is perfect and His works are perfect. He is Father and Master to the universe, He created and formed the whole world.
Moses says the knowledge of God shall be passed from generation to generation, each bearing witness to the fact that God set the land of Israel for the Children of Israel, that He apportioned it according to the numbers of each tribe, that He cared for the Israelites and showered them with blessings.
The Israel Bible explains that while man’s life is fleeting, heaven and earth are eternal. It is for this reason that Moses chooses to call them as witnesses. It is fitting that they should attest to the fulfilment of God’s word, no matter how long it takes.
