"Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven"
Even if you lived (or live, the principle has not changed from ancient times) in a very dry area, it is still a blessing to be located where the "dew of heaven" happened, such as in the example of Isaac's blessing upon Jacob, who God renamed Israel:
"And his father Isaac [see also Isaac's Faith And Obedience] said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son."
Jacob's brother Esau, much of whose territory was to be to the east, was too distant from the sea for the blessings of "the dew of heaven":
"And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above; And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck" (Genesis 27:39-40 KJV)
The dew of heaven was a part of the blessing of the Promised Land:
"And of Joseph he said, Blessed of The Lord [see YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD] be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath, And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon, And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills, And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren" (Deuteronomy 33:13-16 KJV)
