Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee
The land of Canaan, on the borders of which they then were; (See Gill on Deuteronomy 1:8),
the mountain, by that way of it which was the way the spies went, and up to which some of the Israelites presumed to go when forbidden, they not complying with the call of God:
and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee;
as in ( Deuteronomy 1:8 ) ,
fear not, neither be discouraged;
though the people of the land were numerous and strong, and their cities large and walled.
