Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 10:16


10:16 Circumcise - Rest not in your bodily circumcision, but seriously set upon that substantial work which is signified thereby: cleanse your hearts from all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, fitly compared to the foreskin, which if not cut off, made persons profane, unclean and odious in the sight of God.

    "Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt:" as it says in another place; "..for you know the heart of a stranger." Sometimes when we're new to the things of the Lord we somehow think that our new found little bit of knowledge now makes us superior to our unsaved family, friends and neighbors, and the terrible crisis we were in just a short time ago seems far away!

    Vs 18 and 19 are truly compelling. God calls the Israelites to remember that they were strangers in Egypt. God admonishes us to love strangers as he does. He wants us to assist by giving them food and raiment.
