SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:18 Â¶ Todo el pueblo consideraba las voces, y las llamas, y el sonido de la trompeta, y el monte que humeaba; y viéndolo el pueblo, temblaron, y se pusieron de lejos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 20:18 Verse 18. And all the people saw the thunderings, &c.] They had witnessed all these awful things before, (see chap. xix. 16,) but here they seem to have been repeated; probably at the end of each command, there was a peal of thunder, a blast of the trumpet, and a gleam of lightning, to impress their hearts the more deeply with a due sense of the Divine Majesty, of the holiness of the law which was now delivered, and of the fearful consequences of disobedience. This had the desired effect; the people were impressed with a deep religious fear and a terror of God's judgments; acknowledged themselves perfectly satisfied with the discoveries God had made of himself; and requested that Moses might be constituted the mediator between God and them, as they were not able to bear these tremendous discoveries of the Divine Majesty. "Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die;" ver. 19. This teaches us the absolute necessity of that great Mediator between God and man, Christ Jesus, as no man can come unto the Father but by him.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 18-21 - This law, which is so extensive that we cannot measure it, so spiritual that we cannot evade it, and so reasonable that we cannot find faul with it, will be the rule of the future judgment of God, as it is for the present conduct of man. If tried by this rule, we shall find ou lives have been passed in transgressions. And with this holy law and a awful judgment before us, who can despise the gospel of Christ? And the knowledge of the law shows our need of repentance. In every believer' heart sin is dethroned and crucified, the law of God is written, an the image of God renewed. The Holy Spirit enables him to hate sin an flee from it, to love and keep this law in sincerity and truth; no will he cease to repent.
