Milk And Honey

The Land of Israel, which was promised by Hashem to the Jewish people, is praised in various ways in the Bible. One of the most popular phrases is “ארץ זבת חלב ודבש,” meaning that the world is flowing with milk and honey. This phrase is first used to highlight the fertility of Israel as compared to Egypt and that can be seen by adding up the numerical values of the words. The land of Israel is the most fertile because Hashem’s presence, which is His Name, is permeating throughout the land.
