And ye shall dwell with us
. Peaceably and quietly, not as sojourners only, but as inhabitants:
and the land shall be before you;
to choose what part of it they pleased to dwell in, and which they should have in their own power and possession:
dwell and trade you therein;
in any sort of traffic and commerce the land would admit of, and they should best choose:
and get you possessions therein;
buy houses and land, and enjoy them, they and their posterity; these are the arguments used by Hamor to gain the consent of Jacob and his family that his son might marry Dinah; and the proposals are honourable and generous.
