Definitions for Deuteronomy 33 :28

Clarke's Commentary on Deuteronomy 33 :28

Israel then shall dwell - alone - This people shall not be incorporated with any other people under heaven. A prophecy which continues to be fulfilled to the very letter. Every attempt to unite them with any other people has proved absolutely ineffectual.

The fountain of Jacob - His offspring, shall possess a most fertile land; such was Palestine.

Barnes' Commentary on Deuteronomy 33 :28

The fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine - The King James Version does not preserve the symmetry of the clauses. Render it: "Israel shall dwell in safety; alone shall the fountain of Jacob be" (compare Psalm 68:26; Isaiah 48:1); "in a land," etc.
