מב  וְזָכַרְתִּי אֶת־בְּרִיתִי יַעֲקוֹב וְאַף אֶת־בְּרִיתִי יִצְחָק וְאַף אֶת־בְּרִיתִי אַבְרָהָם אֶזְכֹּר וְהָאָרֶץ אֶזְכֹּר׃

26:42   And I will remember the land

This passage lists the curses that will be brought upon the People of Israel if they fail to follow Hashem’s commandments. If His children’s sins become too great, God promises to exile the people from the Promised Land, and to destroy the land itself. Following these curses, however, Hashem promises that He will never give up on His people and that ultimately, there will be a redemption. In this verse, He promises that he will remember not only the People of Israel, but also the Land of Israel itself. He will return His chosen people to the chosen land, and this land will flourish. How fortunate is our generation to witness Hashem “remembering the land” as this verse promises.

  • I agree Herman, I also think that when the people of the land war against each other the land cannot be fruitful and flourish. I have seen untamed countryside in a country where there is much hostility between people. The Land cannot be at rest when there is no peace between brothers.

  • People sometimes say that a certain people need a certain land aproppriate for them. But I think that that the earthly destination is fit for any people as long as they live according HIS Torah. Wonderful how this is expressed already in His Word.
