Wesley's Notes for Exodus 14:13


14:13 Moses answered not these fools according to their folly: Instead of chiding he comforts them, and with an admirable pretence of mind, not disheartened either by the threatenings of Egypt, or the tremblings of Israel, stills their murmuring, Fear ye not, It is our duty, when we cannot get out of our troubles, yet to get above our fears, so that they may only serve to quicken our prayers and endeavours, but may not prevail to silence our faith and hope. Stand still, and think not to save yourselves either by fighting or flying; wait God's orders, and observe them; Compose yourselves, by an entire confidence in God, into a peaceful prospect of the great salvation God is now about to work for you. Hold your peace, you need not so much as give a shout against the enemy: the work shall be done without any concurrence of yours. In times of great difficulty, it is our wisdom to keep our spirits calm, quiet, and sedate, for then we are in the best frame both to do our own work, and to consider the work of God.

    My memory, somewhat challenged, I freely admit, tells me I either read or heard that chariots and parts thereof have been found in the Red Sea. Any comment on that anybody?

    I am glad Moses understand God, what he was doing for his people. I no in the beginning he was afraid that why he ask God to let his brother come along with him people this day are just like Pharaoh refuse to do what the master say, I am glad someone higher than us that sees every thing and open the eyes of many who love him, I couldn't put the bible down, more I read it doing something to met
  • A disciple
    Let every one who loves our Lord Jesus Christ, take heed to what happens in this chapter! The same heathen spirit of antichrist that turned the hearts and minds of the world under Nimrod against the knowledge of the truth and a life of faith and piety toward God and His Anointed; the same that was in the Egyptians and all of Israel's evil neighbors; is the same that works in the world to this day.
  • Cyril
    By any stretch of the imagination this is one of the greatest chapters in the bible. It was a battle between God and the enemy and God prevailed teaching man we can trust him when the situations seems totally lost and hope less. Good encouragement when we have our backs to the wall.
  • Eliud
    verse 23... --- the Egyptians you see shall be no more;---------------- in life, one canfa be faced with any situation but if he/she is trusting the Lord, it shall come to pass and peace of the Lord will take over
  • Ryan
    HalleluYah!!!! The same pillar, presence of YHWH, to the Egyptians (*world, satan, enemies...) seems dark, and yet for Israel, Our Abba Father's adopted
