8  And I will not again cause the feet of Yisrael to wander from the land that I gave to their fathers, if they will but faithfully observe all that I have commanded them—all the Teachings with which My servant Moshe charged them.”

 21:8   If they will but faithfully observe all that I have commanded them

Menashe is the epitome of an evil king. He engages in the worst kinds of idolatry and commits countless acts of murder, influencing the rest of the nation to follow his evil ways. As a result of Menashe’s sins, Hashem determines that He will exile the Children of Israel. Though Eretz Yisrael is an eternal inheritance of the Children of Israel, living in the land depends upon the observance of God’s commandments. The Land of Israel is considered to be “the Palace of the King,” and the laws of the King of Kings must be followed. Today’s State of Israel invests tremendous resources in order to fully facilitate religious life. The Israeli government spends great sums on religious services, such as synagogues and schools, so that the Children of Israel can obey all of Hashem’s commandments. This has resulted in the flourishing of religious life throughout Eretz Yisrael at levels not seen in millennia.

  • I am constantly amazed at the patience of Hashem, proof indeed that He meant good for Israel when he made covenants with them. The two sides of Hashem the fiercesome God who demands obedience and the Loving Father who waits for His children to 'come back'. Between the two the patience and understanding that He does understand our fraility that we are weak without him. That awesome promise that He will never leave us or forsake us, despite our sin. Oh yes He does leave the scene when we go our own way, but He is always there in the background, waiting for us to 'repent and come home'. No other god loves like him, there can be no other god!
