(7) I will take you to me for a people.--Comp. Exodus 19:5-6; Deuteronomy 7:6. The selection of Israel as a "peculiar people" did not involve the abandonment of all other nations, as we see by the instances of Balaam, Ruth, Job, Nebuchadnezzar, Darius the Mede, Cyrus, and others. God always continued to "govern all the nations upon the earth" (Psalm 67:4); and "in every nation those that feared him and worked righteousness" were accepted with him (Acts 10:35). The centurion of the Gospels (Matthew 8:5-13, Luke 7:2-10) and Cornelius in the Acts (Acts 10:1-33) carry the same principle into Gospel times. . . . Verses 7, 8. - The promises are continued, heaped one upon another.

1. God will take them for his own people.

2. He will be, in a special sense, their God.

3. They shall clearly know that it is he who brings them forth out of Egypt. . . .
