Deuteronomy 32:8-9 describes the Most High (God) apportioning the nations to the gods according to “the number of the sons of Israel/Gods”. One can argue over the niceties of the meaning of that expression. Of interest is that the “Most High” allocated Jacob to Yahweh (“Jehovah”). The “Most High” told Yahweh that his share was Jacob.
When the Most High gave the
nations an inheritance,
When he parted the sons of
Adam from one another,
He proceeded to fix the
boundary of the peoples
With regard for the number
of the sons of Israel.
For Jehovah’s share is his people;
Jacob is the allotment that he inherits.
When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance,
when he divided all mankind,
he set up boundaries for the peoples
according to the number of the sons of Israel.
For the LORD'S portion is his people,
Jacob his allotted inheritance.
When the Most High apportioned the nations,
when he divided humankind,
he fixed the boundaries of the peoples
according to the number of the gods;
the LORD's own portion was his people,
Jacob his allotted share.
