Bible commentary

Discussion for Exodus 16:27

  • This verse really shows Jehovah God 's patience with his people. He gave his law and instructions on what should not be done, but the people were hard headed and tried it anyway. We can not think that we know more than God because we will always be proven wrong. This is what happened to the Israelites and the same thing will happen to any who think that they can disregard God 's laws and standards without suffering any consequences.
