The great house of God (Bar 3:24-3:25)

“O Israel!

How great is

The house of God!

How vast the territory

That he possesses!

It is great.

It has no bounds.

It is high.

It is immeasurable.”

Baruch expounded the greatness of Israel with its vast territory as the house of God. This seems so out of place for the exiles in Babylon who had no land.   However, it was both remembrance and aspirational. Baruch talked about the greatness of Israel with no bounds and immeasurable heights.
