Treasury of Scripture

And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for you.

the angel

1 Kings 19:5
And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.

because the journey

Deuteronomy 33:25
Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.

Psalm 103:13,14
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him…









Verse 7. - And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him [i.e., to awaken him. It was the food was to strengthen him], and said, Arise and eat [Probably he had eaten but little the first time, for sorrow and weariness]; because the journey is too great for thee. [The LXX. ὅτι πολλὴ ἀπὸ σοῦ ἡ ὁδός and the Vulgate grandis enim tibi restat via, which Bahr follows, seem hardly so true to the Hebrew idiom as the A.V. rendering. Keil cites Vatablus, iter est majus quam pro viribus tuis. It is very improbable that (Rawlinson al.) the journey to Horeb was now suggested to him for the first time by the angel.]
