Éxodo 3:8 (Reina-Valera 1995)

8 Por eso he descendido para librarlos de manos de los egipcios y sacarlos de aquella tierra a una tierra buena y ancha, a una tierra que fluye leche y miel, a los lugares del cananeo, del heteo, del amorreo, del ferezeo, del heveo y del jebuseo.

Notas al pie:

1. Éxodo 3:8 Tierra que fluye leche y miel: expresión común en el Pentateuco para describir la abundancia y fecundidad de la Tierra prometida. Cf. Dt 8.7-9.

The term land of milk and honey occurs in many Bible verses.

Exodus 3:8 (New King James Version)

8 So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.
