Israel’s continuance of life - in its health, success, and prosperity - is personal and bodily (Deut. 28:4), and furthermore, extending to the land (Deut. 28:3), family (Deut. 28:4), tribe, city, and nation. The promise of God ensured that all tribes would be intact and settled into their allotted inheritance within the Promised Land. When God destroyed an entire tribe, or a good majority, the people called it: “the LORD had made a breach in the tribes of Israel” (Judges 21:15). At another time, on a more individual basis, while David sought to bring the ark of God to himself, one of the carrying men, Uzzah by name, was struck dead for his transgression, and it was said of his death: “the LORD had made a breach upon Uzzah” (2 Sam. 6:8, 1 Chron. 13:11, 15:13). When men of Israel undertake the tasks to fulfill the objectives laid out by the promises of God, and they fail with broken efforts, broken works, while exploits of wrath through harmful plagues and death do trouble them, then they can be sure that something is disqualifying them from their promised right. Some may assume that these breaches are breaks, with no further spiritual parallels, but that it is where God broke forth upon one or some of them, when, had they done right before Him, He would not have breached them. This is a shallow understanding of the word breach. Consider the circumstance of citywide and nationwide matters when the word breach is used.
