32:1 Now the children of a Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of b Gilead, that, behold, the place [was] a place for cattle;

    (g) That is, the inhabitants of the land.

32:22 And the land be subdued before the LORD: then afterward ye shall return, and be guiltless before the LORD, and before Israel; and this land shall be your possession h before the LORD.

    (h) The Lord will grant you this land which you request, (Jos 1:15).
32:23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin i will find you out.
    (i) You shall assuredly be punished for your sin.
32:28 So concerning them Moses k commanded Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel:
    (k) Moses gave charge that his promise made to the Reubenites, and other, would be performed after his death so that they would not break theirs.
32:31 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered, saying, As the l LORD hath said unto thy servants, so will we do.
    (l) This is attributed to the Lord, which his messenger speaks.
