Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 20:22


20:22 Moses being gone into the thick darkness where God was, God there spoke in his hearing only, all that follows from hence to the end of chap. 23, which is mostly an exposition of the ten commandments; and he was to transmit it to the people. The laws in these verses relate to God's worship. Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven - Such was his wonderful condescension; ye shall not make gods of silver - This repetition of the second commandment comes in here, because they were more addicted to idolatry than to any other sin.

    And all through Galatians Paul uses faithful Abraham as an example of faith and GOD shows what Abraham did with faith Genesis 26 5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

    The 4th Commandment is "Keep the 7th day holy". This is a BIG example of GOD 7 4 Theory. Sabbath 7 letters Shabbat 7 Shabbos 7 is the seventh 7 day.

    The swelling of The Belly is Kwashiorkor,The Body Retaining Water, in The Feet, Legs, Arms etc. Is Oedema. Has Nothing to do with The Bread.
  • David Conley
    My thought on this curse is a medical one. Those who have been seriously deprived of protein will lose much weight. Then when followed with water and carbohydrates (the bread) causes swelling of the abdomen, as witnessed by seeing starving children in Africa. Again this is based merely on my medical education, NOT on a vast knowledge of Bible curses.
