Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

When Israel was a child - In the infancy of his political existence.

The next sweet word in the chapter is sonship; "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt." We are, according to the inspired apostle, "predestinated unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will." Ephesians 1:5.

"Because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son
