    Clarke's Commentary on Exodus 15:17

    Thou shalt bring them in - By thy strength and mercy alone shall they get the promised inheritance.

    And plant them - Give them a fixed habitation in Canaan, after their unsettled wandering life in the wilderness.

    In the mountain - Meaning Canaan, which was a very mountainous country, Deuteronomy 11:11; or probably Mount Zion, on which the temple was built. Where the pure worship of God was established, there the people might expect both rest and safety. Wherever the purity of religion is established and preserved, and the high and the low endeavor to regulate their lives according to its precepts, the government of that country is likely to be permanent.

    Barnes' Notes on Exodus 15:17

    In the mountain of thine inheritance - See Exodus 15:13.

    Wesley's Notes on Exodus 15:17

    15:17 Thou shalt bring them in - If he thus bring them out of Egypt, he will bring them into Canaan; for has he begun, and will he not make an end? Thou wilt plant them in the place which thou hast made for thee to dwell in - It is good dwelling where God dwells, in his church on earth, and in his church in heaven. In the mountains - In the mountainous country of Canaan: The sanctuary which thy hands have established - Will as surely establish as if it was done already.
