Deuteronomy 3:20 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 3:20

Until the Lord have given rest unto your brethren, as well as
unto you
Rest from their enemies, and habitations to dwell quietly in; so the land of Canaan is called a rest, ( Deuteronomy 12:9 ) typical of the rest which remains for the people of God:

and until they also possess the land which the Lord your God hath given
them beyond Jordan;
for so Canaan was with respect to Moses and the people with him, who were then in the plains of Moab; otherwise the country in which he was with respect to Canaan is usually called beyond Jordan; this the Lord had given in promise to Israel, and they were just now ready to enter into and possess it, by virtue of his gift, and which made it sure unto them:

and then shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have
given you;
as accordingly they did, ( Joshua 22:1-34 ) .

18 "And I commanded you at that time, saying, 'The LORD your God has given you this land to possess. All your men of valor shall cross over armed before your brothers, the people of Israel.
19 Only your wives, your little ones, and your livestock (I know that you have much livestock) shall remain in the cities that I have given you,
20 until the LORD gives rest to your brothers, as to you, and they also occupy the land that the LORD your God gives them beyond the Jordan. Then each of you may return to his possession which I have given you.'
21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, 'Your eyes have seen all that the LORD your God has done to these two kings. So will the LORD do to all the kingdoms into which you are crossing.
22 You shall not fear them, for it is the LORD your God who fights for you.'
