SEV Biblia, Chapter 20:5 Â¿Y por qué nos has hecho venir de Egipto, a este mal lugar? No es lugar de sementera, de higueras, de viñas, ni granadas; ni aun hay agua para beber.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 5. And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt , etc.] They represent that affair in such a light, as if they were forced out of Egypt by Moses and Aaron against their wills; or at least were overpersuaded by them to do what they had no inclination to, namely, to come out of Egypt; though they were in the utmost bondage and slavery, and their lives were made bitter by it, and they cried by reason of their oppression, and the hardships they endured; but this was all forgot. Aben Ezra says, it is a strange word which is here used, which shows the confusion they were in: to bring us unto this evil place ; dry and barren, where there were neither food nor drink, as follows: it is no place of seed ; or fit for sowing, as the Targum of Jonathan, any sort of seed, as wheat, barley, rye, rice, etc. or of figs, or vines, or pomegranates ; it is not a soil fit to plant such trees in, nor would they grow were they planted: neither is there any water to drink ; for them and their cattle, and therefore must be a miserable place for so large a body of people to subsist in.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-13 - After thirty-eight years' tedious abode in the wilderness, the armie of Israel advanced towards Canaan again. There was no water for the congregation. We live in a wanting world, and wherever we are, mus expect to meet with something to put us out. It is a great mercy to have plenty of water, a mercy which, if we found the want of, we shoul more own the worth of. Hereupon they murmured against Moses and Aaron They spake the same absurd and brutish language their fathers had done It made their crime the worse, that they had smarted so long for the discontent and distrusts of their fathers, yet they venture in the sam steps. Moses must again, in God's name, command water out of a rock for them; God is as able as ever to supply his people with what is needfu for them. But Moses and Aaron acted wrong. They took much of the glor of this work of wonder to themselves; "Must we fetch water?" As if it were done by some power or worthiness of their own. They were to spea to the rock, but they smote it. Therefore it is charged upon them, tha they did not sanctify God, that is, they did not give to him alone tha glory of this miracle which was due unto his name. And being provoke by the people, Moses spake unadvisedly with his lips. The same pride of man would still usurp the office of the appointed Mediator; and becom to ourselves wisdom, righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption Such a state of sinful independence, such a rebellion of the sou against its Saviour, the voice of God condemns in every page of the gospel.
