Barnes' Notes on the Bible

When Israel went out of Egypt - literally, "In the going out of Israel from Egypt." This is not to be confined to the exact act of the exodus, but embraces all that properly entered into that migration - the whole train of events which resuited in their being brought into the promised land.

From a people of strange language - Speaking a foreign or a barbarian tongue. See the notes at Psalm 81:5.
