SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:20 Y enseña a ellos las ordenanzas y las leyes, y muéstrales el camino por donde anden, y lo que han de hacer.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 18:20 Verse 20. Thou shalt teach them ordinances] µyqj chukkim, all such precepts as relate to the ceremonies of religion and political economy. And laws, trwth hattoroth, the instructions relative to the whole system of morality.
And shalt show them the way] ûrdh ha eth hadderech, THAT very WAY, that only way, which God himself has revealed, and in which they should walk in order to please him, and get their souls everlastingly saved.
And the work that they must do.] For it was not sufficient that they should know their duty both to God and man, but they must DO it too; w[y yaasun, they must do it diligently, fervently, effectually; for the paragogic nun deepens and extends the meaning of the verb.
What a very comprehensive form of a preacher's duty does this verse exhibit! 1. He must instruct the people in the nature, use, and importance of the ordinances of religion. 2. He must lay before them the whole moral law, and their obligations to fulfill all its precepts. 3. He must point out to each his particular duty, and what is expected of him in his situation, connections, &c. And, 4. He must set them all their work, and see that they do it. On such a plan as this he will have full opportunity to show the people, 1. Their sin, ignorance, and folly; 2. The pure and holy law which they have broken, and by which they are condemned; 3. The grace of God that bringeth salvation, by which they are to be justified and finally saved; and, 4. The necessity of showing their faith by their works; not only denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, but living soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our saviour, Jesus Christ.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-27 - Here is the great zeal and the toil of Moses as a magistrate. Havin been employed to redeem Israel out of the house of bondage, he is further type of Christ, that he is employed as a lawgiver and a judg among them. If the people were as quarrelsome one with another as the were with God, no doubt Moses had many causes brought before him. Thi business Moses was called to; it appears that he did it with great car and kindness. The meanest Israelite was welcome to bring his caus before him. Moses kept to his business from morning to night. Jethr thought it was too much for him to undertake alone; also it would make the administration of justice tiresome to the people. There may be over-doing even in well-doing. Wisdom is profitable to direct, that we may neither content ourselves with less than our duty, nor tas ourselves beyond our strength. Jethro advised Moses to a better plan Great men should not only study to be useful themselves, but contriv to make others useful. Care must be taken in the choice of the person admitted into such a trust. They should be men of good sense, tha understood business, and that would not be daunted by frowns of clamours, but abhorred the thought of a bribe. Men of piety an religion; such as fear God, who dare not to do a base thing, thoug they could do it secretly and securely. The fear of God will bes fortify a man against temptations to injustice. Moses did not despis this advice. Those are not wise, who think themselves too wise to be counselled __________________________________________________________________
