Bible Commentary for Exodus 3:8

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 3:8


3:8 I am come down to deliver them - When God doth something very extraordinary, he is said to come down to do it, as #Isa 64:1|. This deliverance was typical of our redemption by Christ, and in that the eternal Word did indeed come down from heaven to deliver us. A large land - So it was, according to its true and ancient bounds, as they are described, #Gen 15:18|, and not according to those narrow limits, to which they were afterwards confined for their unbelief and impiety. A land flowing with milk and honey - A proverbial expression, abounding with the choicest fruits, both for necessity and delight.
