Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Exodus 15

Verses 1-27

It was a great and glorious song thatrose on the morning air on the far side of the sea. A study of it will reveal it to be a song of the King. It was a high ecstatic moment of national consciousness. In some aspect every movement of it sounds the praise of the King. The reason for the song is God Himself (verses Exo 15:1-2 ). The victory against the proud foe is wholly Jehovah's (verses Exo 15:3-10 ). The leading of His people is His alone (verses Exo 15:11-13 ). The sense of dread that falls on the men of other nations who witnessed the passage is the issue of Jehovah's victory (verses Exo 15:14-16 ). Their confidence, now high and hopeful, of finally coming into possession of their inheritance is centered wholly in Him (verses Exodus 15:7; Exo 15:18 ).

Now begins the more direct story of Jehovah's guidance of the people. Marah and its bitterness afforded opportunity to discover the resources of Jehovah. Elim was an evidence of His tender care for them.

To those who have eyes to see and hearts to understand, the divine tenderness is manifest along the whole pilgrim pathway.
