Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 23:25


23:25 He shall bless thy bread and thy water - And God's blessing will make bread and water more refreshing and nourishing, than a feast of fat things, and wines on the lees, without that blessing. And I will take sickness away - Either prevent it or remove it. Thy land shall not be visited with epidemical diseases, which are very dreadful, and sometimes have laid countries waste.


Discussion for Exodus 23

    Ex.23:2 - "Thou shalt not follow ....." To follow a multitude, whether they are PLANNING on evil - or not - is foolish. Because - you do not KNOW what will happen in a crowd. That's why there are ALWAYS law enforcement at ANY gathering. Christians do not follow the world's people; we PRAY for them.

    We need to move away from Easter which is pagan and embrace Passover now before the Lamb of God returns. Stop the Easter eggs bonnets clothes
    bunnies laying egg instead of baby bunnies and this year Our Father highlighted that the date is also different 2016 Leap year Easter does not match the dates that God outlined in Abib for the Passover covenant with him! Easter vs Passover choose now!

  • Udeh obianuju Deborah for verse 25
    this version is really beautiful, is telling me that serving God is a privileged, the Bible say 's that he will bless our bread I.e our body and bless our water I.e our spirit man and if God blesses our water, that water shall remain ever living water.And anybody that taste it shall never taste again.And went further to say that he will take away sickness away from us I.e sickness is a MOUNTAIN ..praise ye thy Lord, may God 's name be praised.

    If we turn over our defense to over to God, He will defend us. Moses did that and the Lord promised to defend him - "I will be an enemy unto thy enemies and adversary unto thy adversaries "
