"All the nations"

Twelve Tribes of Israel


Which "nations" were given an inheritance, and who was driven from the land, in the following verse?:

Deuteronomy 32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

It was the "sons of Adam" who were separated from the Israelites when the LORD commanded the Israelites to "make no covenant with" and to "save alive nothing that breatheth" from the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, "seven nations greater and mightier than thou" in Deuteronomy 20:16.


Jer 3:17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

Jer 3:18 In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

Who came together in Jerusalem?  ONLY the Twelve Tribes of Israel, or the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and no other nation.

Jer 25:9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a hissing, and perpetual desolations.

Jer 25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

It was only the Twelve Tribes of Israel who served the king of Babylon for seventy years, and no other nation.



Genesis 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
