And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe you, neither listen to the voice of the first sign…
1. Miracles at first may miss their end, and not persuade men to faith.
2. Second miracles may do that which the first failed to effect.
3. God's word and promise alone can make miracles themselves effectual means of faith.
4. Miracles have voices which should command faith and obedience.
(J. S. Exell, M. A.)
