He Kept Him As The Apple Of His Eye

  1. Deuteronomy 32
    He Kept Him As The Apple Of His Eye​


    10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. —Deuteronomy 32:10 (KJV)


    Found Him In A Desert Land (v. 10
    )
    • Took him into a covenant relation at Sinai, or rather "sustained," "provided for him" in a desert land. Israel is the "apple of his eye"
    A Waste Howling Wilderness (v. 10)
    • A common southeastern Asia expression for a desert infested by wild beasts.

    Moses' Song

    Part of God's plan was His promise to make Abraham the father of a great people. God has always remained faithful to his covenant with Abraham and the people of Israel (they are the "apple of his eye" especially David—later on). Another truth in God's promise is Moses never saw the Promise Land even though God used Moses to lead his people out of Egypt—it was Moses' punishment for disobeying God.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
