Bible Commentary for Exodus 33:14

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 33:14

33:12 Moses now returned to the door of the tabernacle, as an important supplicant for two favours, and prevails for both: herein he was a type of Christ the great intercessor, whom the Father heareth always. He is earnest with God for a grant of his presence with Israel in the rest of their march to Canaan. Thou sayst, bring up this people - Lord, it is thou thyself that employest me, and wilt thou not own me? I am in the way of my duty, and shall I not have thy presence with me in that way? Yet, Thou hast said, I know thee by name, as a particular friend, and thou hast also found grace in my sight, above any other.

33:13 Now therefore, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me thy way - What favour God had expressed to the people they had forfeited the benefit of; and therefore Moses lays the stress of his plea upon what God had said to him. By this therefore he takes hold on God, Lord, if thou wilt do any thing for me, do this for the people. Thus our Lord Jesus, in his intercession, presents himself to the Father, as one in whom he is always well - pleased, and so obtains mercy for us with whom he is justly displeased, Shew me thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight - He insinuates that the people also, though most unworthy, yet were in some relation to God; consider that this nation is thy people; a people that thou hast done great things for, redeemed to thyself, and taken into covenant with thyself; Lord, they are thy own, do not leave them.

33:15 And he said, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence - He speaks as one that dreaded the thought of going forward without God's presence.

33:16 Wherein shall it be known to the nations that have their eyes upon us, that I, and thy people, have found grace in thy sight; so as to be separated from all people upon earth? Is it not that thou goest with us? Nothing short of that can answer these characters.

Discussion for Exodus 33

  • Ivor on Exodus 33:14
    I 'm thinking of what Elijah says, " The Lord is slow to anger but nerciful kind and gracious if we repent of all evils ". Here the Lord offers peace after the people He saved turn against him worship false idols. As the Father of the prodigal son still had love for him even after what he did so the Lord Loves the sinner when he asks forgiveness. To be in the presence of God is not far fetch for when we submit our will and our loves to God, The Lord stands steadfast in His love for us. To know God is to Yield to His Will. This is not far fetched as the Lord provide His Grace and Love to us in the worst of times. I 'm witness to God 's Grace which I am undeserved of Yet I 'm still allowed to receive it by Jesus ' death I 'm healed and saved and given the "rest ". But Thanks be to God who giveth us the Victory through Our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Sister Judy Choate Morin on Exodus 33:14
    I take comfort knowing that God will never leave us, nor will he forsake us. God is Omni Present in my life. Seek the Word of God and you will have rest. I serve a mighty God. To God be the glory and honor.

  • Toni on Exodus 33:14
    It is a wonderful thing to have the presence of God in our lives each day. Those who surrender to His Son Jesus, will receive rest. Jesus says "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give thee rest." That rest is peace for our weary souls. The presence of the Lord is joy and peace. God will be with us and in us each day...the more we surrender unto His will, the more His presence will be made known to our hearts. I love the Lord because He first loved me. To God be glory and honor forever and forever!
