Psalms 136:21

 

 

And gave their land as a heritage, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And gave their land for an heritage,.... This was taken away from them and their subjects by the Lord, who has the disposing of kingdoms, and given to another people, for an inheritance;

for his mercy endureth for ever; while his justice is exercised on some, in a strict manner, with severity and rigour, his mercy is shown to others.

E.W. Bullinger's Companion Bible Notes

their: i.e. Sihon"s and Og"s. Not a verse "clearly dropped out", which contained the noun for this pronoun. The kings named show "whose" land is referred to. An "interpolation" from which a verse has "dropped out" is a new idea in the field of imaginative criticism; and, if true, would be quite unworthy of a "commentator"s" time and trouble.
