32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what goodness the Lord shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.
32 If you come with us, we will share with you whatever good things the Lord gives us."
32 And if you do go with us, whatever good the Lord will do to us, the same will we do to you."
32 If you come with us, we'll make sure that you share in all the good things God will do for us."
32 And it shall be, if you go with us--indeed it shall be--that whatever good the Lord will do to us, the same we will do to you."
32 If you do, we'll share with you all the blessings the Lord gives us."
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Numbers 10:32
Commentary on Numbers 10:29-32
(Read Numbers 10:29-32)
Moses invites his kindred to go to Canaan. Those that are bound for the heavenly Canaan, should ask and encourage their friends to go with them: we shall have none the less of the joys of heaven, for others coming to share with us. It is good having fellowship with those who have fellowship with God. But the things of this world, which are seen, draw strongly from the pursuit of the things of the other world, which are not seen. Moses urges that Hobab might be serviceable to them. Not to show where they must encamp, nor what way they must march, the cloud was to direct that; but to show the conveniences of the place they marched through, and encamped in. It well consists with our trust in God's providence, to use the help of our friends.
