Translation commentary on Deuteronomy 26:9

Brought us into this place: this is parallel to “brought us out of” in verse 8.

Gave us this land: once more the belief of the people of Israel is stated, that the “conquest” of the land of Canaan was not their achievement but God’s gift.

A land flowing with milk and honey: see 6.3.
