Which lay between the place where they now were, and the land of Canaan, and which they would quickly go over:
and dwell in the land which the Lord your God giveth you to
the land of Canaan, and which shows that that is meant by the inheritance: and when
he giveth you rest from all your enemies round
which was done when the land was subdued, and divided among the tribes of Israel, ( Joshua 22:4 ) and which confirms the sense of Canaan being the rest; though this was more completely fulfilled in the days of David, when he and Israel had rest from all their enemies round about, ( 2 Samuel 7:1 ) and who brought the ark of the Lord to Jerusalem; and into whose heart the Lord put it to prepare to build a temple at Jerusalem for him, and which was erected and finished in the days of his son Solomon:
so that ye dwell in safety;
from their enemies, as they more especially did in the reigns of David and Solomon; which seems plainly to describe the time when the place not named should appear to be chosen by the Lord to put his name in, as follows.
