Bible Commentary for Exodus 4:18

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 4:18


4:16 Instead of God - To teach and to command him.

4:17 Take this rod - The staff or crook he carried as a shepherd, that he might not be ashamed of that mean condition out of which God called him. This rod must be his staff of authority, and must be to him instead, both of sword and sceptre.

4:19 The Lord said unto Moses - This seems to have been a second vision, whereby God calls him to the present execution of the command given before.

4:20 The rod of God - His shepherd's crook so called, as it was God's instrument in so many glorious works.
