Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 9:10


9:10 With the finger of God - Immediately and miraculously, which was done not only to procure the greater reverence to the law, but also to signify, that it is the work of God alone to write this law upon the tables of men's hearts. In the day of the assembly - That is, when the people were gathered by God's command to the bottom of mount Sinai, to hear and receive God's ten commandments from his own mouth.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 9

  • Exodus
    Thank you Jesus for your mercy and grace and forgiveness
  • A disciple
    The children of Israel were strictly charged NOT to make any covenant or peace with any of the Nations of the Canaanites, but to utterly destroy without pity everything that breathes; and to completely dispossess them. That is God's judgment upon the wicked who don't repent for ever! So it is the same for us: we are saved from our sins and the ungodliness of the world to have no community with it!
  • Gwendolen Jones
    Everything humans possess originate from God, including emotions. We are emotional, as God has made us in his image. God became
    angry and destroyed humans in Noah's time, and Sodom and Gomorrah. This is not judging, but accurately stating what is written in the Bible. God has not destroyed man again,'because Jesus is standing in the gap for us, but the way humans are today, we
    would be gone.
  • KV
    There are many things in the Bible that show us the mercy of God. We must remember our thoughts are not his thoughts. Where one gives an opinion instead of being all knowing let's pray that God will show the reader his true meaning for their understanding. Thank you God; for your saving Grace and Mercy.
  • James
    It's God who is merciful and is able to forgive not because we come with a sincere heart but because Jesus death and resurrection makes it all possible. We need to stop emphasizing what we need to do and simply look to Jesus and what he has done(death and resurrection)what he is doing(interceding for us) and what he will do(return for his children and make this world his footstool.)God bless u all

    Mike:God may not use certain words but like the words you interprit and wrote on here to express your thoughts so did Moses,God also is a JEALOUS god and that is a HUMAN emotion,but GOD created us in his image,GOD knew what jealousy causes,in Genisis Cane killed Able out of jealousy,as humans we are irrational with our emotions,therefore we CANNOT look at the actions of GOD as we do for ourselves.
