New Defender's Study Bible Notes
11:10 waterest it with thy foot. In Egypt, agriculture depended upon irrigation with water from the Nile obtained through dams, channels, gates and other appurtenances, requiring much labor and personal attention. In the promised land, God Himself would water their crops, by means of the early and latter rains (Deuteronomy 11:14), along with natural drainage. This meant there also would be abundant pasturage for the cattle (Deuteronomy 11:15).
