There is but onc mention made of these persons in holy writ, namely, (2 Timothy 3:8) and the apostle when recording their names gives this short but awful history of their characters—they withstood Moses. Some have supposed, that they were the magicians who for a while confronted Moses, when, at the command and in the name of the Lord, he wrought miracles before Pharaoh and his court. But if it be so, certain it is, the Holy Ghost thought it not of importance to tell the church, or it would have been noticed. The most important circumstance to the believer to remark is, that the magicians were permitted to resemble somewhat of what Moses wrought to a certain point purposely, that when this permission was withdrawn, they might the more readily be compelled to see and acknowledge the finger of the Lord. This they did; and thereby became the unwilling witnesses for God, and to their own confusion. Oh, that the opposers of God's truth and God's Christ, in all ages, would tremble in the recollection of James and Jambres!
