{Genesis 9:27} God 430 shall enlarge 6601 z8686 Japheth, 3315 and he shall dwell 7931 z8799 in the tents 168 of Shem; 8035 and Canaan 3667 shall be x1961 his servant. 5650
enlarge:
or, persuade
Japheth:
Japheth denotes enlargement, and how wonderfully have his boundaries been enlarged; for not only Europe, but Asia Minor, part of Armenia, Iberia, the whole of the vast regions of Asia north of Taurus, and probably America, fell to the share of his posterity.
he shall dwell:
These words may mean either that God or that Japheth shall dwell in the tents of Shem. In either sense the prophecy has been literally fulfilled.
dwell:
"And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious." {Isa 11:10} + "Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her." {Hsa 2:14} + "For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name [shall be] great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense [shall be] offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name [shall be] great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts." {Mal 1:11} + "And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still." {Act 17:14} + "Now if the fall of them [be] the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?" {Rom 11:12} + "And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust." {Rom 15:12} + "But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. ... For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition [between us];" {Eph 2:13-14} + "Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;" {Eph 2:19} + "That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:" {Eph 3:6} + "Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory." {Eph 3:13} + "By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as [in] a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: ... For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker [is] God." {Hbr 11:9-10}
