31 And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place.

Commentary on this verse

By Alexander Payne

Verse 31. And in states of defect of truth and temptation, when it has been manifestly perceived how the soul has been supported by the Divine goodness and wisdom as a man does bear his son (or as the genuine desire after good ever upholds truth in the mind) [N.B.—The love of what is good begets and educates truth in the soul, which is as it were its son] in all the changes it has gone through in its progression to its present state.
