Exodus 6:29 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And it came to pass - Here the seventh chapter should commence, as there is a complete ending of the sixth with Exodus 6:27, and the Exodus 6:30 of this chapter is intimately connected with the 1st verse of the succeeding.
The principal subjects in this chapter have been so amply considered in the notes, that little of importance remains to be done.

Supposing Moses to have really labored under some defect in speech, we may consider it as wisely designed to be a sort of counterbalance to his other excellences: at least this is an ordinary procedure of Divine Providence; personal accomplishments are counterbalanced by mental defects, and mental imperfections often by personal accomplishments.

To be contented with our formation, endowments, and external circumstances, requires not only much submission to the providence of God, but also much of the mind of Christ. On the other hand, should we feel vanity because of some personal or mental accomplishment, we have only to take a view of our whole to find sufficient cause of humiliation; and after all, the meek and gentle spirit only is, in the sight of God, of great price.

They have to spread their sails to the breeze of the age, and to pick up a gospel that comes floating down to them on the stream of time, altering every week in the year; and they must have an endless task to catch this new idea, or, as they put it, to keep abreast of the age. Unless, indeed, …

God also said to Moses, "I am the LORD.
"Therefore, say to the Israelites: 'I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.
"Go, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt to let the Israelites go out of his country."
Now when the LORD spoke to Moses in Egypt,
You are to say everything I command you, and your brother Aaron is to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go out of his country.
