3 And they journeyed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the Passover the sons of Israel went·​·out with a hand lifted·​·high in the eyes of all Egypt.

51 Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, When you have crossed·​·over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,

52 and you shall dispossess all who dwell in the land from before you, and make· all their imagery ·perish, and make· all their molten images ·perish, and blot·​·out all their high·​·places;

53 and you shall dispossess the land, and dwell in her; for I have given you the land to possess her.

54 And you shall inherit the land by lot according to your families; to the more you shall make· his inheritance ·more, and to the less you shall make· his inheritance ·less: to where the lot goes·​·out for him, for him it shall be; to the tribes of your fathers you shall inherit.

55 But if you will not dispossess those dwelling·​·in the land from before you, then it shall be, that those whom you let remain of them shall be a thorn·​·hedge in your eyes, and barbs in your sides, and shall be·​·adversaries with you upon the land wherein you dwell.

56 And it shall be, that I shall do to you, as I consider to do to them.

Explanation of Numbers 33      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-2. The subject of whole chapter is the changes of state through which the man of the church passes in the course of regeneration, which are all inscribed on his memory.

Verses 1-15. The first general state includes deliverance from evil, a state of instruction, and some preparatory states of temptation.

Verses 16-36. The second general state involves more temptations, and a gradual advance towards a state of the good of truth or of charity, accompanied by successive states of instruction and a realization of more distinct states of natural delight in good and truth.

Verses 37-49. And the third general state describes other states of temptation, during which there is a decline to a state of adulterated good.

Verses 50-56. But now revelation follows concerning deliverance from this temptation, and an advance into the heavenly state in which evils and errors are to be entirely abolished, or removed, because otherwise falsities would obscure the light of truth, weaken the life of charity, and pervert the life of love to the Lord.
