Precious Promises

10) National Promises through Moses confirmed

Blessed be Yahweh, that has given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there has not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses. 1 Kings 8:56

A distinction is made here. Solomon does not mention Abraham, but rather the specific conditional national promises made by the hand of Moses. Those promises spoke of Israel’s temporal possession of Canaan achieved under the command of Joshua.

Jeremiah (600BC) writes about the promises to Moses. Yahweh says,

Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them. Jeremiah 32:42
Behold, the days come, said Yahweh, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. Jeremiah 33:14

This promise through Jeremiah for this latter good was despite Israel's wickedness. It is not conditional.
