John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 33:16

And for — And in general for all the choice fruits which the land produceth in all the parts of it, whither hills or valleys. Fulness thereof — That is, the plants and cattle and all creatures that grow, increase, and flourish in it. The good will — For all other effects of the good will and kindness of God who not long since did for a time dwell or appear in the bush to me in order to the relief of his people, Exodus 3:2. Of Joseph — That is, of Joseph's posterity. Him that was separated from his brethren — His brethren separated him from them by making him a slave, and God distinguished him from them by making him a prince. The preceeding words might be rendered, My dweller in the bush. That was an appearance of the divine majesty to Moses only, in token of his particular favour. Many a time had God appeared to Moses; but now he is just dying, he seems to have the most pleasing remembrance, of the first time that he saw the visions of the Almighty. It was here God declared himself the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and so confirmed the promise made to the father, that promise which our Lord shews, reaches as far as the resurrection and eternal life.
