Judges 2:1-3

Psalm 136:10-16
To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever: …









(8) A prophet.--He is here left nameless, but Jewish legend says that he was Phinehas, the son of Eleazar. Their Hagadah (legendary information) generally enables them to name these nameless prophets. Thus they say that the prophet who came to Bethel was Iddo (1 Kings 13), and that the young man who anointed Jehu was Jonah.

Unto the children of Israel.--Perhaps assembled at some solemn feast, like the Passover.

I brought you up.--With the prophet's message compare Judges 2:1-3; 2Kings 17:36-38.

Out of the house of bondage.--A clear reference to Exodus 20:2. (Comp. Psalm 44:1-2.) . . .

Verse 8. - A prophet. Literally, a man, a prophet, just as Deborah was described as a woman, a prophetess (Judges 4:4). It is interesting to observe the flow of the spirit of prophecy in those early days between Moses and Samuel, before the dispensation of the prophets had risen to its height. I brought you up from Egypt. Note the constant reference to the exodus as a fixed point in their national and religious life (see ver. 13; Judges 2:1).
