Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 23:29-30

_ _ I will not drive ... out ... in one year; lest the land become desolate — Many reasons recommend a gradual extirpation of the former inhabitants of Canaan. But only one is here specified — the danger lest, in the unoccupied grounds, wild beasts should inconveniently multiply; a clear proof that the promised land was more than sufficient to contain the actual population of the Israelites.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
