How beautiful are your tents, Jacob, your dwellings, israel. They stretch out like river valleys, like gardens beside a stream, like aloes the LORD has planted, like cedars beside the water. Water will flow from his buckets, and his seed will be by abundant water. His king will be greater than Agag, and his kingdom will be exalted.
GOD is about to bring you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant-when you have eaten and are full.
GOD is about to bring you into a good land, a land with brooks and rivers, springs and lakes, streams out of the hills and through the valleys. It's a land of wheat and barley, of vines and figs and pomegranates, of olives, oil, and honey. It's a land where you'll never go hungry-always food on the table and a roof over your head. It's a land when you'll get iron out of rocks and mine copper from the hills.
But the land that you are going over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water by the rain from haven, a land that the LORD your God cares for, the eyes of the LORD your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.
GOD will throw open the doors of his sky vaults and pour rain on your land on schedule and bless the work you take in hand. You will lend to many nations but you yourself won't have to take out a loan. GOD will make you the head, not the tail; you'll always be the top dig, never the bottom dog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of GOD, your God, that I am commanding you today.
