Deuteronomy 32:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Fat of kidneys of wheat - Almost every person knows that the kidney is enveloped in a coat of the purest fat in the body of the animal, for which several anatomical reasons might be given. As the kidney itself is to the abundantly surrounding fat, so is the germ of the grain to the lobes or farinaceous parts. The expression here may be considered as a very strong and peculiarly happy figure to point out the finest wheat, containing the healthiest and most vigorous germ, growing in a very large and nutritive grain; and consequently the whole figure points out to us a species of wheat, equally excellent both for seed and bread. This beautiful metaphor seems to have escaped the notice of every commentator.
Pure blood of the grape - Red wine, or the pure juice of whatever color, expressed from the grapes, without any adulteration or mixture with water: blood here is synonymous with juice. This intimates that their vines should be of the best kind, and their wine in abundance, and of the most delicious flavour.

The Call of Moses
They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.
He will tether his donkey to a vine, his colt to the choicest branch; he will wash his garments in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes.
"I give you all the finest olive oil and all the finest new wine and grain they give the LORD as the firstfruits of their harvest.
He will not enjoy the streams, the rivers flowing with honey and cream.
when my path was drenched with cream and the rock poured out for me streams of olive oil.
Many bulls surround me; strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.
But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you."
