At this point, God gave her the law to regulate her life as a nation, and this law and covenant have been the backbone of the nation ever since.
But if the exodus was the birth of Israel, then the election and call of Abraham back in Genesis 12 must have been the conception of the nation of Israel, and the period of the patriarchs and slavery in Egypt would then have been the gestation period.
Since you are precious in My sight, since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life.
Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and gather you from the west. ’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from the ends of the earth, everyone who is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed even whom I have made.” (NASB) The main point of the passage is to encourage God’s people not to fear what man or nature can do to them.
“I am the Lord your God, your Savior, you are precious to me.” Look, have I not subjugated other peoples in order to save you (verses 3–4)? That is the first argument why God’s people should not fear. Before we ask just what it is for God to seek his own glory in this way, let’s see if this goal of God has motivated more than just the election of the nation Israel.
I think Moses is telling us, as he writes this primal history, that when ancient man refused to align himself with the goal of God, God set about a very different way of achieving that same goal. Instead man chose to rely on himself and seek his own glory — to make a name for himself. itself almost invisible, like crystal against a grey-blue sky — that’s glory.
In other words, the goal of God in creating Israel, namely, for his glory, is not a goal that took effect only at that point in history. The glory of God is the beauty and excellence of his manifold perfections.
It is the goal that guided his creation and governance of man from the start. He was to multiply and fill the earth so that the knowledge of the glory of God would cover the sea. It is an attempt to put into words what God is like in his magnificence and purity.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.
For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I have given Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in your place.
