John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And Moses said before the Lord, behold, I am of uncircumcised lips,.... As he had done, Exodus 6:13, and this is only a repetition of what is there said, in order to lead on to what is related in the following chapter:

how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me? so mean a person, and so poor a speaker, and he a mighty king, surrounded with wise counsellors and eloquent orators.

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary

Exodus 4:10

REFLECTIONS

Nothing can be more refreshing to the soul under all the discouragements and trials of the faithful, than the firm assurance that we are brought into covenant with a God whose promises and performances are sure to correspond. Our fathers in the church of old knew God under this glorious character, and now it is confirmed to us and sealed in the blood of Jesus, how earnest is every appeal made to the heart to believe the record which God hath given of his Son.

Reader! pause once more over the view this Chapter affords of the timidity of Moses and the unbelief of the Israelites. Alas! what is any man in his highest attainments unsupported by divine strength. My Brother! may we learn this lesson from it, and it will be profitable to place no confidence in ourselves; but may all our sufficiency be in the Lord. We can never trust ourselves too little, nor our God too much. I can do nothing by myself, (said one of old), but I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
