CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
20:6 Of the country - Of this land, in which the prophet was, and to whose inhabitants, these words were uttered. Such - So vain is our hope placed upon such a people as are unable to deliver themselves.
Snakes! Sons of vipers! How will you escape the judgment of hell?
1 Thessalonians 5:3
When people are saying, "Everything is peaceful and secure," then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman's labor pains begin. And there will be no escape.
So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak?
What will you do when I punish you, when I send disaster upon you from a distant land? To whom will you turn for help? Where will your treasures be safe?
But by trusting Pharaoh, you will be humiliated, and by depending on him, you will be disgraced.
Egypt's promises are worthless! Therefore, I call her Rahab--the Harmless Dragon.
For these Egyptians are mere humans, not God! Their horses are puny flesh, not mighty spirits! When the LORD raises his fist against them, those who help will stumble, and those being helped will fall. They will all fall down and die together.
