CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
22:31 Is among us - By his gracious presence, and preventing goodness, in keeping you from so great an offence, and all of us from those calamities that would have followed it. Hand of the Lord - That is, from the wroth and dreadful judgments of God, by avoiding that sin which would have involved both you and us in a most bloody war; you have delivered us from the evils we feared. He that prevents an approaching disease or mischief, doth as truly deliver a man from it, as he that cures or removes it after it hath been inflicted.
"Have the people of Israel build me a holy sanctuary so I can live among them.
I will live among you, and I will not despise you.
When Phinehas the priest and the leaders of the community--the heads of the clans of Israel--heard this from the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, they were satisfied.
Then Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, and the other leaders left the tribes of Reuben and Gad in Gilead and returned to the land of Canaan to tell the Israelites what had happened.
