SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1 Â¶ Un varón de la familia de Leví fue, y tomó por mujer una hija de Leví;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 2:1 Verse 1. There went a man] Amram, son of Kohath, son of Levi, chap. vi. 16-20. A daughter of Levi, Jochebed, sister to Kohath, and consequently both the wife and aunt of her husband Amram, chap. vi. 20; Num. xxvi. 59. Such marriages were at this time lawful, though they were afterwards forbidden, Lev. xviii. 12. But it is possible that daughter of Levi means no more than a descendant of that family, and that probably Amram and Jochebed were only cousin germans. As a new law was to be given and a new priesthood formed, God chose a religious family out of which the lawgiver and the high priest were both to spring.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-4 - Observe the order of Providence: just at the time when Pharaoh' cruelty rose to its height by ordering the Hebrew children to be drowned, the deliverer was born. When men are contriving the ruin of the church, God is preparing for its salvation. The parents of Mose saw he was a goodly child. A lively faith can take encouragement from the least hint of the Divine favour. It is said, Heb 11:23, that the parents of Moses hid him by faith; they had the promise that Israe should be preserved, which they relied upon. Faith in God's promis quickens to the use of lawful means for obtaining mercy. Duty is ours events are God's. Faith in God will set us above the fear of man. A three months' end, when they could not hide the infant any longer, the put him in an ark of bulrushes by the river's brink, and set his siste to watch. And if the weak affection of a mother were thus careful, what shall we think of Him, whose love, whose compassion is, as himself boundless. Moses never had a stronger protection about him, no, no when all the Israelites were round his tent in the wilderness, tha now, when he lay alone, a helpless babe upon the waves. No water, n Egyptian can hurt him. When we seem most neglected and forlorn, God is most present with us.
