Deuteronomy 28:5 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 28:5

Blessed [shall be] thy basket
Which the Targums of Jonathan and Jerusalem restrain to the basket of firstfruits, and the cake of the first of their dough; but it intends any and every vessel in which they put their provisions for present use, and that that should never be empty of them, and that they should always have a sufficiency: and thy store;
what remained, and was laid up in their barns, cellars, and storehouses, for future use, or in proper places for seed.

6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
