SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:10 el SEŅOR vuestro Dios os ha multiplicado, y he aquí sois hoy vosotros como las estrellas del cielo en multitud.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 1:10 Verse 10. Ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.] This was the promise God made to Abraham, Gen. xv. 5, 6; and Moses considers it now as amply fulfilled. But was it really so? Many suppose the expression to be hyperbolical; and others, no friends to revelation, think it a vain empty boast, because the stars, in their apprehension, amount to innumerable millions. Let us consider this subject. How many in number are the stars which appear to the naked eye? for it is by what appears to the naked eye we are to be governed in this business, for God brought Abraham forth abroad, i. e., out of doors, and bade him look towards heaven, not with a telescope, but with his naked eyes, Genesis xv. 5. Now I shall beg the objector to come forth abroad, and look up in the brightest and most favourable night, and count the stars-he need not be terrified at their abundance; the more they are, the more he can count; and I shall pledge myself to find a male Israelite in the very last census taken of this people, Numbers 26., for every star he finds in the whole upper hemisphere of heaven. The truth is, only about 3, 010 stars can be seen by the naked eye in both the northern and southern hemispheres; and the Israelites, independently of women and children, were at the above time more than 600, 000. And suppose we even allow that, from the late discoveries of Dr. Herschel and others with telescopes which have magnified between 35 and 36, 000 times, there may be 75 millions of stars visible by the help of such instruments, which is the highest calculation ever made, yet still the Divine word stands literally true: St. Matthew says, ver., that the generations from Abraham to Christ were 42; now we find at the second census that the fighting men among the Hebrews amounted to 603, 000; and the Israelites, who have never ceased to be a distinct people, have so multiplied as far to exceed the number of all the fixed stars taken together.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. The Lord your God hath multiplied you , etc.] Which was the reason why he could not bear them, or the government of them was too heavy for him, because they were so numerous, and the cases brought before him to decide were so many: and, behold, you are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude ; whereby it appeared that the promise to Abraham was fulfilled, ( Genesis 15:5), they were now 600,000 men fit for war, besides women and children, and those under age, which must make the number of them very large.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-18 - Moses reminds the people of the happy constitution of their government which might make them all safe and easy, if it was not their own fault He owns the fulfilment of God's promise to Abraham, and prays for the further accomplishment of it. We are not straitened in the power an goodness of God; why should we be straitened in our own faith and hope Good laws were given to the Israelites, and good men were to see to the execution of them, which showed God's goodness to them, and the care of Moses.
