What does Deuteronomy 2:22 Mean?

Deuteronomy 2:22 says, "As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead even unto this day."

This verse continues Moses' retelling of Israel's journey through the wilderness and their encounters with other nations.

Here, Moses references the children of Esau, who lived in the land of Seir. The Horims were another group of people who lived in that area before the children of Esau took over. Moses reminds the Israelites that it was the Lord who destroyed the Horims and gave their land to the children of Esau.

The message of this verse is similar to that of Deuteronomy 2:21: it is a reminder of God's faithfulness to his promises and his power to deliver his people. The Israelites were able to conquer the land of the children of Esau because of God's help and intervention, just as they had conquered the land of the Ammonites.
