(25) For he supposed his brethren would have understood . . .--Better, and he supposed. The Greek conjunction never has the meaning of "for," and the insertion of that word gives to the act of slaying the Egyptian a deliberate character which, in the narrative of Exodus 2:11-12, does not belong to it.

Would deliver them.--Literally, was giving them salvation, or deliverance; the act being itself one of championship and the first step to deliverance.

Verse 25. - And he supposed that his brethren understood for for he supposed that his brethren would have understood, A.V.; was giving them deliverance for would deliver them, A.V.
