Bible Commentary for Exodus 4:12

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 4:12


4:10 O my Lord, I am not eloquent - He was a great philosopher, statesman, and divine, and yet no orator; a man of a clear head, great thought and solid judgment, but had not a voluble tongue, nor ready utterance; and therefore he thought himself unfit to speak before great men, and about great affairs. Moses was mighty in word, #Acts 7:22|, and yet not eloquent: what he said was strong and nervous, and to the purpose, and distilled as the dew, #Deu 32:2|, though he did not deliver himself with that readiness, ease and fineness that some do.

4:13 Send by whom thou wilt send - By any but me.

4:14 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against him - Even self - diffidence when it grows into an extreme, when it either hinders us from duty, or clogs us in duty, is very displeasing to him.
