Exodus 10 – Ratification of the Law
March 5, 2014
The laws of God are in many cases very practical and based on the environment that we are in. Strangers should be cared for and not abused by being thrown into the cold without a cloak or placed into debt. The escaped beasts of burden of a stranger should be returned to a stranger’s owner as well as it would be for your own. The Hebrews were strangers in Egypt, and they should remember that when dealing with strangers.
Moses returns to the people and recites the law and then writes it down. The ratification of the law is done through blood, as noted by Hebrews . The people say that they will obey the law and the people feast as part if the ratification.
