Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 10:8


10:8 At that time - About that time, that is, when I was come down from the mount, as was said, #Deu 10:5|. To stand before the Lord - A phrase used concerning the prophets, #1Kings 17:1 18:15|, this being the posture of ministers. Hence the angels are said to stand, #2Chr 18:18 Luke 1:19|. To bless - The people, by performance of those holy ministrations for the people, and giving those instructions to them, to which God's blessing was promised; and this they did in God's name, that is, by command, and commission from him.

    Deuteronomy 10:20 "Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, Him shalt thou serve, and to him thou shalt cleave, and swear by His name." v. 21 "He is thy praise, and he is thy 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.
