The Sweetest Land

So, when Hashem has brought you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which He swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey Exodus 13:5 (The Israel Bible™)
וְהָיָה כִי־יְבִיאֲךָ יְהֹוָה אֶל־אֶרֶץ הַכְּנַעֲנִי וְהַחִתִּי וְהָאֱמֹרִי וְהַחִוִּי וְהַיְבוּסִי אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּע לַאֲבֹתֶיךָ לָתֶת לָךְ אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ

Hear the verse in Hebrew

v’-ha-YA ki y’-vee-ah-KHA el eh-RETZ ha-k’-na-a’-nee v’-ha-khi-TEE v’-ha-eh-mo-REE v’-ha-khee-VEE v’-ha-y’-vu-SEE a-SHER nish-BA la-a-vo-te-KHA la-TAYT lakh eh-RETZ za-VAT kha-LAV u-d’-VASH

The Land of Israel is described many times throughout the Bible as a land flowing with milk and honey. Some explain this expression quite literally: Milk flows from the goats, and honey comes from the dates and figs that Israel is known for. Others believe that the word “flowing” is used, to indicate exceptional fertility and abundance.

On a metaphorical level, milk is a nutritional necessity whereas honey is a savory delicacy. God promises that the Land of Israel will provide not only the essential things needed to survive, but also sweet luxuries.
