CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
19:16 Now at length is come that memorable day, in which Israel heard the voice of the Lord God speaking to them out of the midst of the fire and lived, Deu 4:33.

Thunder is the voice of God, and lightning the fire of God, proper to engage both the learning senses of seeing and hearing.
