The finger of God signifies his power, his operation. Pharaoh's magicians discovered the finger of God in the miracle which Moses wrought, Exodus 8:19 . This legislator gave the law written by the finger of God to the Hebrews, Exodus 31:18 . Our Saviour says he cast out devils by the finger and Spirit of God, which he intimates was a sign that the kingdom of God was come; that God's spiritual government of his church was begun to be exercised among the Jews, by the Messiah, Luke 11:20 . To put forth one's finger, is a bantering, insulting gesture. "If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, and the putting out of the finger," Isaiah 58:9 ; if thou take away from the midst of thee the chain, or yoke, wherewith thou loadest thy debtors; and forbear pointing at them, and using jeering or menacing gestures.
