Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel:…
I. THE SIGHT OF GOD, TO WHICH THE NOBLES OF ISRAEL WERE ADMITTED.
II. THE SAFETY AND COMFORT WHICH THEY ENJOYED.
III. THE FEAST WITH WHICH THEY WERE PROVIDED. They ate of the peace-offerings which had been recently sacrificed, and drank of the libations which had just been offered, on the ratification of the covenant. Even thus are the disciples of Christ invited to partake of Him by faith, and that in joy and gladness, as the great peace-offering of the Church. Thus are they seated at the table of their adorable Lord, in token of gracious communion with the family in heaven; and thus is their fellowship manifested with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. In this fellowship His children truly see God in Christ. They behold, and they partake, the glory of His person, the glory of His covenant, the hidden glory of His Word, the glory of His redeeming and everlasting love.
(R. P. Buddicom, M. A.)
