Deuteronomy 32:15 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

God did this, because He had chosen Israel as His own nation, even before it came into existence. As the Lord's people of possession (cf. Deuteronomy 7:6; Deuteronomy 10:15, and Exodus 19:5), Israel was Jehovah's portion, and the inheritance assigned to Him. חבל, a cord, or measure, then a piece of land measured off; here it is figuratively applied to the nation.
