Discussion for Exodus 19:8

  • Randall Brewer for verse 8
    This is what really made God angery because the people was telling God that they didn't want to have to depend on him for anything. Give them some rules to follow...the 10 commandments were given in the very next chapter.. laws that only one man could ever keep.
