Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 32:13-14

_ _ He made him ride on the high places, etc. — All these expressions seem to have peculiar reference to their home in the trans-jordanic territory, that being the extent of Palestine that they had seen at the time when Moses is represented as uttering these words. “The high places” and “the fields” are specially applicable to the tablelands of Gilead as are the allusions to the herds and flocks, the honey of the wild bees which hive in the crevices of the rocks, the oil from the olive as it grew singly or in small clumps on the tops of hills where scarcely anything else would grow, the finest wheat (Psalms 81:16; Psalms 147:14), and the prolific vintage.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 32:7-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 32:13

The high places — To conquer their strongest holds, which often are in the mountains, and their cities fenced with walls of greatest height and strength. To ride upon, in scripture phrase, is to subdue or conquer. Out of the rock — This being a land flowing with honey, where the bees made honey in the holes of rocks, or in the trees that grew upon or among the rocks. Out of the flinty rocks — The olive — trees grow and bear most fruit in rocky or hilly places.
