EXODUS 19:1-8, 16-25
Exodus 19 and 20 record an event that was a great turning point in the life of the Israelites as well
as all mankind. These chapters record the giving of the Law by God through Moses to the nation
of Israel.
Exodus 19:1-2 says, “In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the
land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. For they were departed from
Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there
Israel camped before the mount.”
God fulfilled His promise to Moses. When God had called Moses at the burning bush in the
wilderness of Sinai, He said, “I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have
sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this
mountain” (3:12). Moses and the Israelites were now at Mount Sinai, thus fulfilling God’s
promise to him.
At Mount Sinai the covenant by which God would deal with them for about the next 1,500 years
was given. In other words, this covenant remained in effect until the Lord Jesus Christ was
crucified at Calvary, thus changing the order of God’s dealings with mankind.
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise
the simple (Ps. 19:7).
