&c.] Fulfilling the promise made to Abraham, ( Genesis 15:5 ) ( 22:17 ) ( Deuteronomy 1:10 ) their number when they came out of Egypt, and just before they entered into the land of Canaan, being upwards of 600,000 men, besides women and children, ( Exodus 12:37 ) ( Numbers 11:21 ) ( 26:51 )
and broughtest them into the land, concerning which thou hadst

the land of Canaan, promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their seed, into which the Lord brought them by Joshua; he was the instrument, but the thing was of God.
