Wesley's Notes on the Bible

51:4 My people - Ye Jews, whom I chose to be my peculiar people. A law - A new law, even the doctrine of the gospel.

The people - People of all nations.

But instead of this they accused Moses of being a murderer. And in answer to this God said, "I will rain bread from heaven." What an illustration of Romans v. 8.
