9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Exodus 3:9

Commentary on Exodus 3:7-10

(Read Exodus 3:7-10)

God notices the afflictions of Israel. Their sorrows; even the secret sorrows of God's people are known to him. Their cry; God hears the cries of his afflicted people. The oppression they endured; the highest and greatest of their oppressors are not above him. God promises speedy deliverance by methods out of the common ways of providence. Those whom God, by his grace, delivers out of a spiritual Egypt, he will bring to a heavenly Canaan.
