CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
At thy rebuke they fled - At thy command; or when thou didst speak to them. The Hebrew word also implies the notion of "rebuke," or "reproof," as if there were some displeasure or dissatisfaction. Proverbs 13:1; Proverbs 17:10; Ecclesiastes 7:5; Isaiah 30:17; Psalm 76:6.

It is impossible to conceive anything more sublime than this.

Some of these they supposed to be kind and benevolent, delighting in doing good; others, to be malicious and cruel, delighting in …

Epistle xvii. To Felix, Bishop of Messana.
The Host of Heaven and of Earth.
The LORD also thundered in the heavens, And the Most High uttered His voice, Hailstones and coals of fire.
Then the channels of water appeared, And the foundations of the world were laid bare At Your rebuke, O LORD, At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.
The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters.
The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook.
Thus He rebuked the Red Sea and it dried up, And He led them through the deeps, as through the wilderness.
"Why was there no man when I came? When I called, why was there none to answer? Is My hand so short that it cannot ransom? Or have I no power to deliver? Behold, I dry up the sea with My rebuke, I make the rivers a wilderness; Their fish stink for lack of water And die of thirst.
