Wat is the corollary between the two halves of the Pasuk?

1.

Ramban #1 (citing Ibn Ezra): With reference to the future 1 - "You will lead with Your kindness (via the Pillars of Cloud and of Fire) ... , You will lead them slowly (but surely) to the Your holy dwelling".

2.

Seforno: The first half refers to the past - when, after taking them outside the border of Egypt to Succos, Hashem guided them in the desert (via the two Clouds). 2 Whereas the second half refers to the present - having led them slowly through the sea on dry land, He was now leading them 3 on the journey to His holy dwelling, to sanctify them there in His service.

3.

Ramban #2: Having discussed the fate of the Egyptians (in the previous Pasuk), the Torah now relates how Hashem saved Yisrael with the Might of His Hand - on a journey towards His holy dwelling-place.


1

As is the way of Pesukim regarding prophecy (Ibn Ezra). The Ibn Ezra himself presents an alternative explanation that is similar to that of the Seforno (Refer to 15:13:1:2).

2

Like a horse in the desert, to prevent them from stumbling (Seforno).

3

Targum Onkelos translates it as 'carrying them' (See Rashi), Targum Yonasan as 'inherited to them'.

2)

What is the Pasuk referring to when it writes "Your holy dwelling-place"?

1.

Rashbam: It is referring to Eretz Cana'an.

2.

Ramban (citing the Mechilta) 1 and Targum Yonasan: It refers to the Beis-ha'Mikdash. 2


1

Citing the Pasuk in Yeshayah, 33:20.

2

As the Torah will indicate (in Pasuk 17 [Ramban]).
