Wesley's Notes for Exodus 33:10


33:10 And when they saw the cloudy pillar, that symbol of God's presence, give Moses the meeting, they all worshipped every man at his tent door - Thereby they signified, Their humble adoration of the divine majesty. Their thankfulness to God, that he was pleased to shew them this token for good, for if he had been pleased to kill them he would not have shewed them such things as these. And their hearty concurrence with Moses as their advocate, in every thing he should promise for them.

Seeing the glory of the Lord is what He has done and will do. cont.

    Everything God does - has a point. He didn't do v. 22 just to pass by Moses. In v. 23 God's 'back parts' was what He had done - before Moses, in the wa-a-ay distant past - that He wanted Moses to write down - starting the O.T. There was more of a point to vs. 22 than just 'passing by', but I don't know what it was; somebody ..... ?

    The full glory of Jehovah God is too magnificent to behold. This explains why no man can see God and live.
