Exodus 4:1 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

1. they (twice)] not the Egyptians (Exo 3:22), but the Israelites, as v. 30 shews. The verse is the sequel in J to Exo 3:18.

1 9. Moses’ third difficulty: in spite of the assurance of Exo 3:18 a, the Israelites will perhaps not listen to him, or believe in his divine commission. To enable him to meet this contingency, he is endowed with the power of performing three signs, which may serve as credentials of his commission.

Exo 3:1 to Exo 4:17 . Moses commissioned by Jehovah at Horeb to deliver His people. The dialogue between Jehovah and Moses, as in other cases (cf. Delitzsch on Gen 12:1), must be pictured, not as one audible externally, but as giving expression, in words which are naturally those of the narrators, to Moses’ mental communings with God, through which he was gradually taught by Him that, in spite of the difficulties which he saw before him, he was nevertheless to be His appointed agent for accomplishing Israel’s deliverance (cf. the dialogue in Jeremiah 14-15). See further, on the sense in which God is to be understood as ‘speaking’ to a man, the Introduction, p. xlvii f.
