SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:23 Â¶ Y aconteció que después de muchos días murió el rey de Egipto, y los hijos de Israel suspiraron a causa de la servidumbre, y clamaron, y su clamor subió a Dios desde su servidumbre.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 2:23 Verse 23. In process of time-the king of Egypt died] According to St. Stephen, (Acts vii. 30, compared with chap. vii. 7,) the death of the Egyptian king happened about forty years after the escape of Moses to Midian. The words µhh µybrh µymyb yhyw vayehi baiyamlm harabbim hahem, which we translate And it came to pass in process of time, signify, And it was in many days from these that the king, &c. It has already been remarked that Archbishop Usher supposes this king to have been Ramesses Miamun, who was succeeded by his son Amenophis, who was drowned in the Red Sea when pursuing the Israelites, but Abul Farajius says it was Amunfathis, (Amenophis,) he who made the cruel edict against the Hebrew children.
Some suppose that Moses wrote the book of Job during the time he sojourned in Midian, and also the book of Genesis. See the preface to the book of Job, where this subject is considered.
Sighed by reason of the bondage] For the nature of their bondage, see note on "chap. i. 14".
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23-25 - The Israelites' bondage in Egypt continued, though the murdering of their infants did not continue. Sometimes the Lord suffers the rod of the wicked to lie very long and very heavy on the lot of the righteous At last they began to think of God under their troubles. It is a sig that the Lord is coming towards us with deliverance, when he incline and enables us to cry to him for it. God heard their groaning; he mad it to appear that he took notice of their complaints. He remembered his covenant, of which he is ever mindful. He considered this, and not an merit of theirs. He looked upon the children of Israel. Moses looke upon them, and pitied them; but now God looked upon them, and helpe them. He had respect unto them. His eyes are now fixed upon Israel, to show himself in their behalf. God is ever thus, a very present help i trouble. Take courage then, ye who, conscious of guilt and thraldom are looking to Him for deliverance. God in Christ Jesus is also lookin upon you. A call of love is joined with a promise of the Redeemer. Com unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give yo rest, Mt 11:28 __________________________________________________________________
